Very nice concept.
Looking forward for other puzzle types as well.

I have a question regarding the timer, if 60 minutes is the limit then why the timer is starting from 0 rather than 60 ?.
I mean the timer should go from 60 to 0 as in usual LMI monthly tests.

Regards,
Ravi

I'm really looking forward to Tapa months. I have two questions about scoring.

1. Are there any penalties for wrong submissions?
I submitted wrong answers in some trial puzzles, but there were no penalties.
If this also applies to real competition puzzles, I feel very happy!

2. How will you decide total ranking?
(Total time or total rank) for (all 50 or best **) puzzles?

Based on a suggestion from a player, we have enabled "Shift + Left Click". Here is the summary of mouse clicks.

I don't think Serkan is that kind. All wrong submissions will be penalized for real competitions puzzles.

Yes, every puzzle can be solved in 3 days, but 2nd and 3rd day has time/point disadvantages for solver.

Thanks for fun the puzzles! I've tried a couple and I think my answers were correct. When I submit, it says they are wrong. Could I be shading the wrong color? I am using Firefox 10.0.

We had a chat and this is resolved now.
jalbert was marking the white cells in a different color.

So, if someone else who hasn't figured out yet, please note that, white cells can be left blank or can be marked with a circle of any color.
All shaded cells HAVE to be colored (any color is fine)

CTC Scoring system

  • 2 minutes penalty for each wrong submission
  • 15% time penalty for each late day (maximum 2 late days are allowed – so a puzzle can be solved upto 72 hours after it is uploaded)
  • Each puzzle has its own points, which is computed from solving times of top 10% players on that day.
  • Each player gets points for solving a puzzle based on own solving time and others’ solving times. Exponential distribution is used.
  • Total points for a player is sum of puzzle points over 50 days.

Here is the link to view the results for trial puzzles (02-Feb to 9-Feb ) xttp://logicmastersindia.com/CTC/ trialscore.asp with assumptions that 1) everyone solved the puzzle on the day it was uploaded and 2) MED is simple median of all players

Most people will know this, but CTRL-click to clear will be CMD-click (apple-click) on a Mac. In the instructions, it says you can start a puzzle 'any time in the next 24 hours' but that's actually 72 hours (with penalty) right?

Gosh I am *so rubbish* at Tapa.

So the CTC rotates around the server time and not GMT like the other contests?
