Hi all,

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

Thanks,
Gabriele


Yes, there cannot be a blackened cell that is not part of a line.

    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.

    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.

    Great puzzles, I still haven't finished all of them, but I'll be sure to do so.

    I realised, though, that I have posted my answers to the Tapa with Borders puzzles in the fields for the Tapa Possible puzzles. It would be very much appreciated if you could amend this error on my part.
    I guess the error-checking system isn't of much use when the answers to all puzzles have the same format :)

    :) I sent a message you about it. And i asked this. Of course you get points. But i think there are some technical issues in this situation, so probably administrator can fix this.

    I believe there is another bad sentence on the WORD TAPA puzzle.
    "Different words can intersect only if they share a letter" says the booklet. but in the example VARIATION and CONTEST share TWO letters (ON).
    should the instruction say "if they share at least a letter"?

    Question on Tapa Star from someone who has done the test: does the count of cells between the two stars include the two stars themselves? I interpreted as if the stars in a row were in column 1 and column 6, then 4 would be entered for that row (columns 2,3,4,5 are between them). If that's not what you meant, can credit still be given?

    serkan,
    very nice set of puzzles.

    for tapa rotator i combined row A and row B answers in the first row and second rotator puzzle's answer in the next row, amounting to both puzzles tagged as incorrect. can this be considered?

    thanks and regards,

    Serkan for really nice set of puzzles and LMI for hosting
    this event. Tapa is a really nice puzzle type and its different
    variants increased a lot. Just by looking at normal tapa and its
    many variants I hope you will invent some other new puzzle types
    in the future...

    I need to practise some more tapas...
