I wanted to have a look at last year's Irregular & Hybrids Round of SM 2018, but it is showing Pathway Sudoku. Can this be fixed please.

I believe, the rules of FRAME in the "Outside Frame Sudoku" for 6x6 size should be "sum of digits in the cells until bold edge? because from bottom its just 2 cells".
Please clarify if I am wrong.

The puzzles were all very nice, although a couple of the answer keys allowed some hacking. (In particular, I had to solve only around 2/3 of the 7-point Classic.)

I broke the last Classic (but fixed it later) and the large Odd Fortress, so on an ideal day I would have gotten a few more points -- but I'm still very happy with my performance here!

Nice set of Sudokus, each with neat, logical solving paths. Went quite smoothly for me and I completed the set for the first time in SM. Really enjoyed the test.

Thanks Akash for a fun test!

Thanks for the sudokus Akash.Was an easier test compared to the last two.
Favourites were Arrow Thermo and Scattered 9*9s
Felt I was sluggish and slow while solving and it waa reflected on the scoreboard.

Though,I felt that the contest was on the harder side sudokus were excellent with quality aesthetics and tremendously challenging and enjoyable solve paths.

I started with the odd fortress (11) and for some reason, it took me a lot of time to figure out the continuation.Classic (7) too at the end took some effort and I had to guess my way through it.My favourites are Outside Frame (11) and Scattered (16).Rest were fun too !

Thanks for the great contest Akash ! I really enjoyed it.

This is my favourite set of the season. Since I have done with my season this is great end of 2019 SM for me.
Akash the aesthetics are just great and lot to learn for us to come near to this quality.
Thanks for the great set.

The balance was nice. Difficulty was easier than few previous tests. I should have completed the set, but got stuck in high scattered Sudoku. I solved it later, that 6 in center was key to find and then it break through.
Wonderful themes and puzzles.
Thanks Akash.
Looking forward to the final one.

Swaroop

Dear Admin,

I just couldn't take the SM Irregular & Hybrid Test last weekend due to Good-Friday/Easter weekend. And now I am flooded with work after a long week-end at work. Is it possible to extend the test by a day or two.

Thanks

with regards,
Daniel Victor
