Awesome set. Loved all 9x9 variants. Little Killer was daunting. Attempted it after the test. Thanks Aakash and Kishore!

 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Too many hard puzzles
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Average
 Which set of puzzles did you like the most? Serbian Frame Sudoku
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Many puzzles were worth too much or too little


Before doing the round, I saw a forum fost that started with "frust...". I can see where he is coming from.
I broke almost all the 9x9 I attempted multiple times (In fact I only solved one (Serbian sums) I also took very long on that, but that was on me, I had solved an 8 clue as a 7 clue, and unfortunately after that the puzzle didnt break, but just didnt lead anywhere...).
The 9x9 seemed much harder than all the 6x6 also by point value (there were two 4 point 6x6, that seeemed very quuick anyway and I was stuck for ages on all 9x9 puzzles.)

rules for serbian frame 1 seem off in the instruction booklet. Am I right supposing that it should be 2nd and 3rd digit just as in the serbian frame 2 sudoku? Thanks


The instructions given in the IB are correct.

i.e., for 6X6 : Row clues are sum of 1st and 2nd digits.Column clues are sum of 2nd & 3rd digits while for 9X9, Row clues are sum of 2nd and 3rd digits and Column clues are sum of 3rd and 4th digits.Hope it's clear now.Good luck !


Ay yeah, I misread it, thanks

And I did a blunder....by not reading the rules carefully.
Followed 2nd and 3rd cell for rows

The 9x9's would be great as stand-alones. Anything harder than the 9x9 Killer (a beautiful construction by the way) might be better off not in the test.
The Little Killer took me 20+ minutes which is nearly 1/3 of the test's duration. I see the points being appropriately adjusted but perhaps too hard for SM?
Very nice grids that didn't feel too math-y. Thanks!

Absolutely wonderful set of puzzles.. thank you for that, Akash and Kishore!

My first time attempting online solving and I was hit with a ton of technical last minute issues and ended up doing horribly on this round, but I couldn't help but notice the puzzles themselves were really enjoyable, and just the right amount of difficulty in my opinion!

Thanks!

The quality of puzzles was exceptional. It was not my day for sure. After solving Little killer in ~20 mins... I did blunder in XSums by putting 17 pair instead of 15 in 9 sum repeatedly in 1st box and somehow never erased that portion in repeated solving. I will keep that solve as a souvenir now. I was just laughing to see it today also.
This just killed my time and when I saw timer some 34-35 mins was remaining, did whatever I could.
Serbian Frame also I broken after losing this much time. I really seriously need to work on these blunders which I make at crucial junctures.
My feeling is I could have finished this in quite good time.

I felt for SM it is slightly on harder side as quality is similar to GP puzzles.
Excellent sudokus I would say and I admire Akash and Kishore as a author and rate them very high. Thanks Akash and Kishore. Lastly thanks Rakesh who would have put his effort in background.
