Serkan has collected some practice materials from earlier IPSTs


great work serkan!!was desperate to see a diamond puzzle question which has all the cards from 2 to 10 and u have posted one ..good work admin!..will be of immense help if model puzzles like these are posted before any monthly puzzle test


Well it depends on availability of the types. If they are already available, whoever is aware of it will surely link to them (like Bram did to Naoki Inaba's site in the last puzzle test). Also in the last puzzle test I made a practice puzzle or two, and so did some other authors like Gorogoro (owner of Puzzle Graffiti blog). But its not always possible, since its pretty time consuming to figure out an unfamiliar puzzle type enough to create something of it.

I think this is my worst performance of the year. At least for 7 puzzles I reached contradictions, and then solved them after time and realized how stupid my errors were. I liked the Yajilin a lot, but not competitively, because you never know when you miss one black cell somewhere or other, and you always have that feeling some clue might not be satisfied with the added diagonal constraint to look at. Dikuro, Digits Rotation, Disposition were among my favorites too.

Thanks for the test Riad.

Hi. We looked into your solution. See the intersection of 8 card and 5 card according to your labeling and make note of all diamonds used. There are 2 diamonds in there that are not used by either 8 or 5. Thats one mistake. I guess there are others. Remember all diamonds must be used by at least one card.

hi..i have understood the question incorrectly.i misinterpreted 'all given diamonds should be used' as something else....like i thought that each of the diamonds have to be present in atleast one card and the position of the diamonds should match that in the card..took me some time to realise this after i went through your reply.......now got it.!thnks a ton for going through it and explaining me my mistake

I made so many errors, I can hardly read some of my answers! Silly brain. Very 'dense' puzzle types, these will be great to do over a longer time period.
Thanks Riad, I hope you will continue to make the week-long tests that you are famous for too. I really look forward to those. Maybe LMI could host one?

Similar sentiments as Stefano's here

Certainly there are many takers for Riad's week-long contests and LMI would be happy to host one of those.

Poor playing means poor score... Not that I did that many mistakes, but on about every puzzle I had the feeling of being twice too slow. I needed as much time on the Dikuro as on the Diayajilin despite the fact that I had to correct a mistake on this last one. I stared at a half-filled Diversion for nearly 10' without doing or even trying anything, and finally solved it in less than a minute... just after the end of the test. And why exactly didn't I try the Diversion without borders although I felt confident on this type ?

Anyway, my feeling about the test is that there were some very nice puzzles (amongst the ones I solved, Diayajilin and Dikuro in particular were great), but that several types are amongst the ones I prefer to see on a "one week test" rather than on a timed event (notably Diamonds, Digits rotation or Divergence). On the other hand, given the coming of WPC, it could prove useful to try ourselves at some unusual types of puzzles under the threat of the timer...

Thanks for the test Riad.

I really suffered through this set breaking basically every puzzle. But solving them now afterwards they were all really nice. The ones I didn't solve in competition are actually the once I thought were the nicest.

Congratulations Palmer, Ulrich, Janka and Hideaki!
Including bonus Palmer scored 265 points, and Ulrich 243.
Thank you all for participating!

In July, I learned that the WSC/WPC will be held October 1–7. By this time I had prepared my regular 8-day contest. If I had planned a contest on 7–15 September, it would distract everyone from preparation for WSC/WPC. So, I hastily came up with a new 2-hour contest. In a rush I was inattentive. I apologize for the fact that I was inaccurate.
Thank you again, my friends!
Riad

without the solutions puzzles like digits rotation ,divergence,dioxides and so on will remain a mystery till eternity to patzers like me....because these are puzzles where u can easily see where u have gone wrong seeing the answer ..so if solutions are available it would be highly preferable to post it here........
