Penpa Tabs


-Please use the "Sudoku" tab for all sudokus.
-Sometimes the modes reset to something else but are easily changeable as per convenience.
-You can also "resize" the grid based on your device and your solving convenience.
- CTRL + F5 (cache refresh) in case penpa loads out of place.
- This contest uses the "PenpaLite" feature. Now, only the tabs we have set will appear instead of the clutter of different tabs. If you want to see the usual tabs you only need to toggle the "PenpaLite at the top area to "off".
- Points distribution will be released on 22nd July.

Nice puzzles! There were a couple that seemed to be just, Other Sudoku Variant with an odd/even clue thrown in for uniqueness; which loses some style points in my opinion, but otherwise the solving paths are still really nice. I loved the big Odd Even Arrows. The small Odd Even Renban is very beautiful, but what I think is the intended logic was too difficult for me to get during the test.

Fun puzzles Nityant! Agree that the 6x6 renban was a devious one, it took me longer than the 9x9 hehe

9x9 View had a lovely solve path - by far my favorite of the set

Thanks Nityant for the delightful puzzles. Both OE Arrow and OE view were pick of the lot and of course the little OE renban cannot be ignored. Looking for more from you.

Phenomenal set of Sudokus.Great job Nityant ! My favourites are OE View (15) where I just loved the start so much (that one long XY chain was fantastic) and OE Arrow (18 points) which had a testing solve right till the end.

The OE Renban (4 pointer) was such a trickster and it took me quite a while to get the start (after a couple of failed guesses, I stumbled upon the start).

Thank you for a fantastic set !

Thankyou Nityant and Rakesh for a lovely set. Favorite was the OE Arrow 9*9. In the OE Renban 6*6, got lucky with the guess at the start and was able to finish. Will try to solve it logically later.

A stupid question: on the page where one can download the puzzle booklets under More information
it says:

You may START "Sudoku Mahabharat 2021 - Odd Even" any time between 7/23/2021 7:30:01 PM IST and 7/30/2021 1:29:59 AM IST.

Can I START solving at 1:29:59 AM IST? On top of the Forum page it says that it ENDS at 1:29:59 AM IST. (3 hours, 41 minutes from now)

Thanks to the 276 participants, and Congratulations to the 31 finishers!

Congratulations to Tantan Dai, Endo Ken, Tiit Vunk and Hideaki Jo for taking the top 4 spots.

Exceptional performance from Tantan!

Also, Congratulations to Prasanna Seshadri, Kishore Kumar, James Peter and Kumaresan R for taking the top four spots from India.

Thanks to Nityant Agarwal for authoring this round! His debut Sudoku contest on LMI. The contest had some tricky grids. The most tricky was of course the 6x6 Renban - with least correct submissions.

Those who missed taking part in this test can still take this test unofficially.

Thanks for the puzzles. One comment - the arrows are a darker grey than in previous puzzles (e.g. the 2021-07's Arrow Palindrome). This made it somewhat difficult to annotate in those cells. I much prefer the lighter-grey shading.
