ATTENTION 1 PUZZLE BOOKLET WILL NOT CONTAIN EXAMPLES.

ATTENTION 2 Puzzle 8 - Double Tapa will be 85 points instead of 58, and Puzzle 9 - Tapa Connection will be 51 points instead of 39

I am having a little problem in understanding the answer key for Tapa Rotator. I am unable to understand how we get A and B for the rotated grid as shown in the IB. I am getting a different answer as shown in the attached image.

Both grids have their own A and B.
Your marking of A and B in the rotated grid is incorrect.

May be the rows should be marked as A, B, C, D to avoid any confusion.

I have a question regarding the rules of Double Tapa. Is the solution in the example unique? Why can't we add one more cell to the inside wall (the one to the right of the 4-clue) ?

Also, very nice set of variations!

Thanks for noticing, the example not have unique solution. As you noticed there is a problem with clue 4. Because there is no reason to leave the cell next to 4 empty, it may be a grey cell.

I have question about Tapa Connection. "Connect the identical letters with snakelike lines going vertically or horizontally" means that lines cannot touching itself? Because line C is touching itself...

No, each one can touch itself. Snakelike means the line cannot have any branches.

Hi all,

I have a question for Tapa Connection: all the black cells should belong to one of the snakelike lines?

Thanks,

    In the puzzle booklet, Tapa Rotator will have marks as A & B in the top grid, and C & D in the bottom grid

    For Tapa w/borders, in the IB it says that clues outside the border will be invalid, but the 3 on the bottom row is. Should it be a different number, or should the instructions say 'not necessarily valid'? Thanks! looks like a lot of fun!

    Yes, outside clues will be invalid, because it is needed to consider only final grid, clues are not important out of the final grid.

    ATTENTION
    Word Tapa: There is an unclear phrase in the instructions. Each word should intersect or overlap with another one, but the instruction doesn't state this clearly. E.g. if there are two words as ONE and TWO, they can be TWONE but they cannot be TWOONE or ONETWO.

    All submissions will be checked manually. You can solve the puzzle as you like, the solutions will be accepted if it is correct with or without intersecting every word.

    Nice puzzles - neither too easy nor too difficult. Although I was not able to attempt a majority of the puzzles, I enjoyed the ones which I could. Thanks Serkan for the nice contest.
