Another fun set, thanks. I found the shading puzzles very difficult, especially cave (normally my favorite) and crazy/crazier pavement, most of which I could not even break into.

My one complaint is that for the shading puzzles, I would have preferred to have each row/column in its own answer box, rather than putting it in pairs. The sanity check of the box not being red is helpful, but currently you have to check two rows/columns rather than a single one if you make a typo.

The puzzles were all solid though. Thanks!

This was a fun set to solve. For me, this was the best set of this year's PR. The Loops puzzles were relatively easier. The Shading puzzles were hard, but still felt approachable.

Loved the pavement puzzles and the reflect link. Maybe it's just because It was the only puzzles that I were able to solve :)

I should have probably read the instruction booklet answer keys, because I couldn't figure out why my boxes were red at first in the shading. Even thoug there are better answer keys for particular types, I understand making all answer keys the same for all groups.

Nice test. Puzzles are good with interesting themes, although none is particularly memorable. (I was hoping that the theme of 1-2-3-4-5-6 in the first 6 puzzles would continue, but I guess 7-8-9 in Yajilin would be too hard.) I'm curious why there is no dynasty-style puzzles in Shading (no two black cells adjacent, all white cells form a single contiguous region).

Thanks a lot. Your assumption of 789 as a theme was right. From the start i did create puzzles with this theme in mind. Loop section theme with 1 to 11 and shading seperately with 1 to 11. Due to some personal problems i had to go out of town for 3 weeks and had to create other puzzles in a hurry so after 1 to 6 in loops i discontinued the theme. But still happy that you are able to guess.

A fun set of puzzles.I got stuck in Tapa (7) for quite a while searching the intended break-in and messed up the crazy pavement puzzles too raking in guess after guess in the 5 pointer which affected timings and hit my score.Favorites are Reflect Link and Yajilin puzzles.I felt the set was on the harder side but definitely enjoyable probably because of the familiar puzzle genres and nice solve paths .Congrats Ashish for capping the sudoku round with a cool puzzle round !!

Very good set of puzzles. A relief after dismal previous round. Could complete cave (8 ptr) dot at the stroke of time but could not submit.

I agree with this. Having a box for each row/column of the answer key is much more convenient.
