Notes


- The round start will be delayed by 5 hours compared to previous rounds. The round end will be extended by 5 hours compared to previous rounds.
- Please check the tabbing of the example links if you are solving on penpa. We understand there are many nuances for notations in this round, and we've tried our best to generalize it. For example, in Letter Weights, the number tab is set to 'white BG' which means you can write over letters with numbers and the white background will make it a complete replacement.
- Points table and Number of PB pages will be released closer to the contest.

Made some minor changes to IB (Reworded anagram rules, added to Word Labyrinth that 'some letters may be given'). Other changes if any will be done in version 2 along with points and PB page info, but please feel free to point it out if anything's off.

There is an error in the solution to word labyrinth. The last two letters of JEDAN have been swapped.

For Word Labyrinth, can you clarify/verify:

• Can there be spaces between letters in the middle of the given words - or must their letters be placed consecutively?
• Rules currently state "Write...following the spiral" - is it possible that this is more specific and could add the word "inward"?

- Must be consecutive.
- Yes, it is inward and the word will be added, along with the clarification about being consecutive from your first question.
V2 of the IB will have both clarified properly.
Thank you for your input.

I have a request for a long time: it will be possible to put in the answer form the number of the puzzle near the name? Haveing different puzzle of the same type coud led to error in submission. Obviously you can "count" the puzzle in the answer form but during the contest it could be a time-loss activity
For example, in the current contest I submit the solution for puzzle #11 in form for puzzle #10 (same puzzle, same point). I checked the solution 2 times but I was at the end of the contest and so I lost the point. My fault, indeed; luckly only 1 point lost and I'm not in the top solver so no problem at all, but I think it could be usefull.

Anyway,
thanks very much for the enjoyable (as usual) contest

Wow! This is easily my favourite Casual round across all PRs. Phenomenal puzzles.
What I liked most was they were all very approachable, even though the Knight Paths were very annoying :-)

Favourites:
10 Nearest Exit
13 Word Search
20 Word Nurikabe

Thanks a lot Anubhav! (and whoever authored #20 ;-) )

+1 to this, its rare but can mix up when points are same (like I did for Nearest Exit in this contest).

Thanks, Anubhav for the great test. However, I could not solve many puzzles in this round but most of the puzzles in this round were solvable logically. I liked the Word Nurikabe the most.
Thanks, Anubhav and puzzle #20 author (my guess is that this puzzle is created by Prasanna :)).

Thanks Rohan for your kind words of appreciation.

Well, to be totally honest Knight's Paths were meant to be more mathematical than to cause any sort of head related unease :P
