I've gone through my solution many times to try and find anything that could contradict any of the rules. I've gone through the answer key I sent several times as well. And the answer key
3: PYXXXFLLLL
4: IFFUPPWFFU
5: VNILVPPUFU
was denied. I am, however, pretty sure that my solution (see link) is correct.

Am I wrong? Did I forget some strange rule? Or is there a mistake in my key that I didn't notice while reviewing it several times?
Or are there really multiple solutions?

Thank you for your help.

I have another correct solution, too...
Mine is

3-- PYFFZZLLLL
4-- ZZZVPPWFFU
5-- VNILVPPUFU

Mine was denied, too: but I'm pretty sure that's correct...

Thank for your patience.

Great contest!

The one genre I really didn't like was Rangoli. Also do the letters RANG mean something? Why not just use 1234 or ABCD? I just found it confusing when solving.

Otherwise lots of fun though, I especially liked the Rassi Silai and the new variants (3D and adding turn counts)!

Thanks for the input.

Yes, RANG means colour. While coming up with the idea of this new puzzle, the thought of using 1234 had crossed my mind. But I didn't want to give it a Sudokuish feel.

Rassi silaai is a personal favourite of mine too. We came up with this innovative thinking of using exploratory clues, simple 3D grids and thematic puzzles (Swastik the holy symbol, LPS).

Hope you will like the future puzzles :)

I found it harder to get used to using the letters RANG instead of 1234 for Rangoli - had to use additional processing power to keep them ordered in my head since they have to be conseuctive either CW or CCW (not a criticism, just an observation).

Rounding off the PR season with a fantastic set. Perfect difficulty level and a great quality of puzzles. Thoroughly enjoyed!
My favourites were the Pentominous 2, 5 Cells 3, and the Sashigane 1
My only gripe would be that the 3D Rassi Silai borders were hard to distinguish between dotted lines and borders. I did not see a dark border and ended up losing an easy 3 points.
Happy personally to round the SM/PR season off with a satisfying performance :)

Thank you Ashish and Anubhav!

This was fun, thanks! Almost all new types for me, I practiced the Regions puzzles (and they went pretty smoothly).

I found it tricky to remember the letter sequence in Rangoli: I ended up writing out the eight possible arrangements at the top of the page. ('1234' or 'ABCD' would have been easier?)

Rassi Silai seems very interesting, I'll probably have some fun figuring out the intended logical path through them.

Once again thanks for the contest!
