When is the next LMI Sudoku test? How do I get notified?



The schedule for LMI tests are published at this thread
This link is same as "Monthly Tests" link you see at the top of the web page.


Also, link to the next active test is always available in forum (top right corner)


Typically, monthly tests are announced 10 days before the test dates.

We also send emails to players if they have participated in earlier monthly tests.

Apart from LMI forum, we also announce about tests in other puzzle forums (UKPA, forum.logic-masters.de, sudokuvariante.forumactif.com, forsmarts.com/forum, wpf forum)

What is the typical life cycle of a monthly test?


In most cases,
  • A test is announced 10 days before it starts.
  • Instruction Booklet (IB) is available a week before it starts.
  • Discussion (mainly doubts / questions / strategies on the puzzles) take place in the corresponding thread through out the week. Minor changes to IB is possible based on these discussions.
  • Password protected puzzle booklet is available at least 6 hours before the test starts.
  • Flash Submission is enabled 6 hours before the test starts.
  • Tests typically run for 48 hours during the weekend. (Most LMI tests starts from 00:00:01 Saturday GMT)
  • While the test is running, score page is available only to those who have participated.
  • The score page is made public immediately after the test is over and Winners are announced.
  • Player provide feedback about the test and it goes through lot of analysis.
  • Within 48 hours after the test, LMI ratings are updated after including the test scores.
  • Around 5 days after the test, it is marked as inactive, and we plan for the next test.

I see from score page that sudokus are rated. How do I rate sudokus?


Sudokus can be rated from the test submission page. Rating stars are available below each sudoku. Click on the star to rate the sudokus. (More stars means better puzzle)



There is no submit button, just clicking on the star is enough. If you've rated a puzzle, the stars will have a different color.



Authors look forward to any kind of feedback regarding the sudokus. It is nice to rate the sudokus. [But please don't experiment with the stars - we have seen that some players just click on the stars for fun. It is not advisable ]

It is not necessary to rate the sudokus while the timer is on. In fact, we recommend that you rate the sudokus only after you finish the test.

Starting Jan'2011, the ratings are made anonymous (that means no player can see what other player has rated)

There is no online solving for this test.

You will need to download the Puzzle PDFs on the test page (http://logicmastersindia.com/M201205S/), then start either Part to get its password, unlock the PDF, and solve the puzzles either on computer using some Paint-like software or take a printout and solve on paper. Read the Instruction Booklet for how to enter answers and all, also on the link.

Hi. This is the general F.A.Q. that deals mainly with the monthly tests. The ISC is a bit of a special test because it is a national championship and so it will be at 1400 hrs IST as mentioned on the submission page. The details above are mainly an effective way to learn how to use the site, participate in the contests, and use the interface.

Once you start there will be a bunch of submission boxes appearing. Its not exactly the same but check the IPC Demo page we set up for the Indian Puzzle Championship earlier. The submission boxes will similarly appear once you login and click start. The only difference is there will be a submission button below each Sudoku name to let you submit and let you know immediately if its right or wrong.

If you meant what codes to enter, each Sudoku will have 2 arrows outside the grid, A and B. Each Sudoku will contain 2 boxes on the submission page. Enter the 9 digits along the row/column A in the top box and the 9 digits along row/column B in the bottom box.

Sorry but no. However, I recommend just asking your queries on the forum and being regular on contests. For one thing, these kind of puzzles and Sudoku variants are easier to get used to with interaction and regular solving, and for another you will potentially get responses from some of the world's best solvers :) You may score low on contests at the start, but that is completely fine, we've all been there.

It will be better to use a Laptop or a Desktop as some of the mobile browsers may not support Flash plug-in which is used in the Answer submission form.

Will Claim Bonus gives us extra time only for offline puzzle solver, or it is such that if we do sudoku earlier, it will benefit us next round?

Claim bonus is applicable only in fixed time contests without instant grading. In this case, if a solver finishes all puzzles before time, they may click the claim bonus button to signal that the test is over, and at this point bonus will be calculated according to correctness of submissions for that contest only.
