Archery: 1. Is 29+17, 19+27 a possible answer for the example problem? 2. Can we have the same number in the different boards?

1. Yes, it is a possible answer. Sorry, the example is not unique.
2. Yes, you can. You just cannot hit the same number on the same board.

I think ATHARV means if it there can be unused row / column in the middle of the "correct" 10x10 puzzle.

The 10x10 puzzle is continuous. No unused area in between.

In "Archery", I have an incorrect answer but I don't understand why. Seems valid to me. Are there multiple answers possible?

Share via email to logicmasteradmin@gmail.com and we will take a look. If there is, we can adjust accordingly.

I think the answer key for Archery is a little unfair. I looked at the example, and example answer, and bold underlined words, and felt that it expected all the numbers to be listed.
I see most submissions have penalties, so that appears common. Perhaps the full answer (which includes the official answer inside it) could be accepted as an alternative correct answer?

Yes. I haven't been familiar with the puzzles so didn't know immediately what was going on, but this makes sense. I'll speak to Tawan and accept the other answer too. It might take a while to sort out the results page though.

If you are talking about the time trials, the password will appear once the trial starts, you can see the schedule on the landing page linked to at the top.

I'm talking about every single puzzle on the entire site. I can't open a single one without a password. When I download the puzzle booklet (any of them, including ones that have been open for a long time now), the PDF is locked and I get the message 'Enter a password. This file is password protected. Please enter a password to open the file'.

Have you read the F.A.Q.? It is linked to on the home page as well as the landing page linked to above. These booklets are password protected because they are for fixed time contests, and the idea is you do not see the puzzles till your timer starts, so that no one gains an unfair advantage. So any particular contest, once it starts or once you click the start button, the password will appear and a timer will begin to count down, at which point you are expected to print the PDF and start solving.

Again, this is all explained clearly with images in the F.A.Q. which I highly recommend going through.

I am having significant technical issues that are really interfering with my enjoyment of this event.
I do not have PenPa -- I do not have a printer -- so the best I have been able to do so far has been
to take a screenshot of a puzzle and try to modify it with MS Paint. This proves to be very clumsy,
especially with my virtual pen's habit of turning itself into an eraser at inopportune times, probably
adding at least 40% to my solving times. So far I have only been able to solve 3 puzzles out of 5,
and the slowdown has always made the submissions close before I could supply any answers.
Scoring 0 points on the one day that I thought I would have the most free time is not a promising
start to this event.

I did see that PenPa was automatically connected to the Timed Events (I tried and failed to
solve the recent Football puzzle). Is there any remote chance of that being automatically linked
to the other puzzle events?

If you are asking about the spaces between the letters, then the answer is NO. It means that spaces in the given letters have to be ignored.

There are many internal reasons why we didn't have penpa for the main competition rounds. If this is your first time, remember you get to keep the puzzles and can practice. All big events are usually offline and on paper, so generally speaking it'd be good to print out the stuff you haven't solved after the event and try it out.

For now, check out the bonus rounds as they will have penpa too. For instance, the King of Kakuro round later today. Also, continue trying the time trials :)

We wanted an event for everyone while also keeping the main competition fair for top solvers. There are a few reasons why having penpa support goes away from that.

Sport Climbing (Multi Skyscrapers): I'm a bit confused about the Haido rules: "clues indicate the size of the building that must be seen from that direction"
Does "the building" mean the first building seen in that direction or any building seen in that direction ?

The answer is both of these situations are valid. Let‘s say if you have numbers 142365, you can see buildings 146 from the left side and buildings 56 from the right side.

What I meant is: several buildings can be seen from a direction. The clue then indicates any one of them, correct ? I'm not a native speaker, but shouldn't "*the* building" be rephrased as "*a* building" then ?
