Far too hard for a daily puzzle - I had to give up since I couldn't spend long enough on it, and come back the next day. If a puzzle is extremely hard without warning then it's unreasonable to expect people to magically have enough time set aside at the moment they discover this. It also takes away the fun of it, and means those who don't have other commitments have a definite advantage. ;)

Good point. We plan to add a difficulty level in the next episode of CTC.

I could not submit my solution (18th Feb) when I finished solving it (about 20 minutes before deadline). I tried again then some minutes later again but could submit only after a half hour.


Deb, sorry for disturbing again, could you check if I had the same problem as Nilz? Thank you!

Is it possible that 22 Feb puzzle has duplicate solution? I'm stupidly looking to my solution for already 20 minutes and can't find any mistalkes.

As it happened a few days ago, an incorrect solution seems to have been entered in the background. That is fixed now, and the timings of the 'incorrect' submissions which match the actual solution will be in the system and edited to reflect on the score page soon.

Guessed in the middle, but the outside was doable.

Great battle on the USA side -- only 2.7 points separate first place from second, and only 1.3 points separate third place from fourth.

I'm pretty sure, that my second attempt was correct. But I get message this is incorrect. I lost about 10 minutes looking for mistake, not seeing any mistake sent the same solution and... it was correct. Is it possible?
marred commented at 2016-02-22 00:33:30
Ok, nevermind, I didn't click "Send solution" after making amendments and I was still thinking that even after amendments I'm still wrong.
debmohanty commented at 2016-02-22 00:51:10
An incorrect solution was recorded. We have fixed the same. See forum post for details.
swaroop2011 commented at 2016-02-22 04:42:15
I kept making mistakes. Had to restart 5 times. I dunno why i was repeating same mistake. Bad day. So one more to go.
kiwijam commented at 2016-02-22 08:27:37
Another great puzzle. It's sad to say goodbye soon :) Many thanks to Serkan for this series. (I think you were the only author?)

No more daily TAPA? Noooooo,
What a pity... :-(

Thanks very much to all the organizers and, expecially, Serkan: it was a great contest (despite my mediocre results, but I can't expect better :-)
Looking for next TVC to have more tapa puzzles!

Thanks so much to Serkan and all for the great puzzles and great contest. I especially liked the extended number of weeks. And the system works so well. I hope there will be another contest next year.

If there is, I have one suggestion that might not be too hard to implement. In the "Other's Solves" section, would it be possible to add a "Pause" button in addition to the stop button? After pressing the stop button, the start button clears the grid and starts the solve over. I would greatly enjoy the ability to pause on a solve to try to figure out what the next step should be and then continue from that point.

Another wish (which might be more difficult to implement) involves "reviewing" a puzzle. I sometimes clear previously solved puzzles and rework them. I would like to be able to confirm that my re-solve is correct, especially for the larger puzzles.

Thanks again, and I hope you are feeling much better soon, Serkan!

Classic Tapa Contest for 2016 is officially over. sai won the contest, by a huge margin, as most of us were expecting. EKBM and Prasanna had a very close contest, with EKBM jumping ahead in last few days. Congratulations.

Despite the minor hiccups on few days, I hope everyone enjoyed the contest. Like every year, we will be posting some stats soon.

Personally, it would have been very exciting to have Prasanna at the second place, but he can take consolation in the fact that he has lost to none other than the World Puzzle Champion.
