Players downloading the Instruction Booklet should download the Booklet for Samurai Sudoku and should start planning how they will solve it :-)

Yes. The 16 pieces given in the IB is final.

In the actual puzzle, the Samurai Sudoku will have 16 shaded 3X3 boxes. You have to put these pieces in those 16 shaded boxes.
Additionally, the Samurai Sudoku will have some givens (hints) as well.

Is that clear?

Broken Pieces bonus puzzle

A bonus puzzle for Broken Pieces can be downloaded from here

Notes
• No points for solving the bonus puzzle. So, don't solve it when you are taking the test.
• Since it is just a puzzle for fun, you might find it tricky. But the difficulty level of the bonus puzzle has got nothing to do with the difficulty level of the actual puzzles in the test.

Share your feedback, if you solve it.

Nice puzzle Deb. There were a lot of useful common cells amongst the 8 options.
I do hope that the broken pieces puzzles will be easier.

I've solved some of the BP puzzles, and they are definitely easier.
Rohan to answer if all BP puzzles are easier than this bonus puzzle or not.

The Sudoku tests have different submit button for each puzzle.
But there is one Single submit button for the Puzzle Test.
When you click on the Submit button, all modified answers will be submitted. (modified = modified since you last submitted)

Example :
You fill in puzzle 1 and puzzle 2 and click on Submit.
You will get a message "Answer to 2 puzzles (2 new answers) were submitted at server time 8/26/2010 8:29:30 AM. 89 minutes and 40 seconds remaining."

After that you fill in puzzle 3 and puzzle 4 and puzzle 5 and click on Submit
You will get a message "Answer to 5 puzzles (3 new answers) were submitted at server time 8/26/2010 8:39:30 AM. 79 minutes and 40 seconds remaining."

After that you fill in puzzle 6 and puzzle 7 and click on Submit
You will get a message "Answer to 7 puzzles (2 new answers) were submitted at server time 8/26/2010 8:49:30 AM. 69 minutes and 40 seconds remaining."

After that you realize that you have made a mistake in filling puzzle 5. You change the answer for puzzle 5 and Click on Submit.
You will get a message "Answer to 7 puzzles (1 new answers) were submitted at server time 8/26/2010 8:59:30 AM. 59 minutes and 40 seconds remaining."

After that you don't make any changes, and click on Submit
You will get a message "Answer to 7 puzzles (0 new answers) were submitted at server time 8/26/2010 9:09:30 AM. 49 minutes and 40 seconds remaining."


So, the submission time for each puzzle will be according to when the specified puzzle was last submitted.
In the above case, the submission times will be as below.
P1 : 8/26/2010 8:29:30 AM
P2 : 8/26/2010 8:29:30 AM
P3 : 8/26/2010 8:39:30 AM
P4 : 8/26/2010 8:39:30 AM
P5 : 8/26/2010 8:59:30 AM
P6 : 8/26/2010 8:49:30 AM
P7 : 8/26/2010 8:49:30 AM

So, you can submit as many times as you want, before you time ends.
At any point in time, you can look at the message and see how many submissions are recorded.

Hope this is clear and as desired.

( NOTE : the time that you see in the message will always be in IST)

I solved bonus puzzle yesterday and it is really nice puzzle as other said. Every next move and common cells in left pieces guides you to the final solution.
This will be very interesting test and it looks that we should give some additional effort to make good result on this test.

Regards,
Branko

The Puzzle Booklet has been uploaded.
Please download the Samurai pdf before you start the test. This is not password protected. You can open it and plan how to solve the puzzle.
Our record suggests that many players are just downloading the IB and PB.

Like all other LMI tests, you can view your scores 100 minutes after you start the test.

Although we've taken extra measure to ensure that the answer key is unambiguous, it is possible that some players enter the answer key in a different format. If you find that you have not got points because your answer format is different, you can claim your points here.

Do NOT post your answer here. Just post the puzzle that has been marked wrong.

Of course, if you don't understand any answer key, it is better to get it clarified here before you start the test.

I just finished the test. Great puzzles. I will not put any technical comments until the test is over. My only advice is do participate in this test, you will love solving these puzzles. Thanks Rohan and Tejal for the great set of puzzles.

Do put your comments when you solve this test.

Also be ready with the Samuari Sudoku pieces cut as suggest in the IB. It will be helpful in the test.
