Great set of sudokus Rakesh ! I thoroughly enjoyed the contest and it was hard to choose a favourite amongst these.However, if I were to pick a few, LK, X-Sums and Equal sum Lines would top the list in that order.

The sudokus were very nicely constructed and were clean as a whistle.I was mostly concerned about Kid sudoku as I haven't seen this type much before in the past.Fortunately, I got through that rather fast after getting the idea.I had major hiccups in Rhombus and Diagonal towards the end but thankfully I didn't break those.

Thanks a lot for the contest !

Thanks Kishore! Kid sudoku clues were kept simple with the only catch being that those rows/columns were blank. Otherwise, it was easy to deduce the different combinations to make 99999.

Beautiful set of puzzles. Loved x-sum, kid, and unique sums. Broke renban and got overwhelmed with rhombus during the test.

Thanks Harmeet! Unfortunate that you were not able to complete Renban and Rhombus within the contest duration.

Thanks Rakesh!

Yeah, I broke the Killer 4 times, which ruined my contest, leaving me little time to attempt the unfamiliar variants, which I had left for the end.

Thanks to all 148 participants!

Congratulations to all winners, especially all participants who scored above 80. No surprises in the top 5 - Kota Morinishi, Seungjae Kwak, Hideaki Jo, Endo Ken and Michael Ley.

It was a challenging test - with some easy ones to start, some unfamiliar variants and some moderate to tough grids in the end. Also, special mention for Vijaya, Ritaban, Priyam, Aashay, Swaroop and Gaurav who were able to solve 10+ grids during the contest.

Rhombus and Equal Sum Lines were the least solved variants and Mini and Classic were obviously the most solved ones.

Hope you enjoyed the contest. And good luck to everyone for the upcoming WSC!

Pentakaideca = "a fifteen sided polygon" - If you look at the contest image, it is a fifteen sided polygon, loosely representing fifteen sudokus in this contest.
