Prasanna: this looks like a great set of puzzles! But the instructions for "their universe" are really worded confusingly (on purpose, I assume) -- the "our universe" instructions not only are much clearer but also, in many instances, rightfully avoid assuming that one version is more standard than the other. Perhaps it is not a bad idea to make it clear that there is just one set of puzzles, and that people who like me have trouble with the "alternate universe" instructions should just use the version from our universe and that the other instructions do not actually add anything (except maybe a good dose of confusion)?

Or did I get so confused that I didn't even get *that* right?

Hii!Perhaps you have not noticed the Author's note at the top in 'Their Universe' Booklet ? :

"Author’s Note (regardless of the universe the author is from) :

This Instruction booklet contains the exact same types but just presented in
a different (maybe interesting) way. Consider this as a “Translation” for
another Universe. It is the same contest explained and presented in a
different way, just for fun"

Hi Denis,

Kishore's right. The first page of the "TheirUniverse" IB contains a note with that clarification. Please let me know if that's unclear in some way.

Ok, it's pretty clear, thanks! I did see the note but I was so confused by the whole "their universe" IB that I wasn't sure it would be completely clear for everyone. With this discussion in the forum I think it should now be completely clear.

I'm having trouble understanding the rules to the linked consecutive sudoku. Could you clarify what is meant by "The edges that are adjacent across two different grids"?

Thx

Yes. There will be only one PB, with rules from "Our Universe"

The password protected Puzzle Booklet has been uploaded on the submission page.

Notes about Online solving:


1. Players solving online can check the results only after 111 minutes. Bonus will be computed based on last submission time.
2. Hamle Sudoku will not have marking possibilities on the left grid.

Hi Prasanna, the timers on the submission page seem to suggest the contest will only be open on April 19-20, not 19-21 as advertised. Would it be possible to extend the test to also run on Monday as I think was initially planned, since I am not sure I can do it within the currently listed 48-hour window? Thanks, Denis

For Quad Max Sudoku, does the rule imply that if an arrow is not provided, that number is not greater than all the remaining 3?

I think thats mostly an error. We do intend to run it on Monday too like we usually do with LMI Contests now. I missed it, it should be fixed by tomorrow morning (India time). Sorry for the confusion.

No added implications. Only where the arrow is provided, the digit must be greater than the remaining 3. No Min/Max restrictions otherwise.

I also presume THEY will solve THEIR contest.

Will there be a unique classification at the end, including both US and THEM? Or there will be a separate / different leaderbord for each universe? Or the average of the two rankings for each player with his/her counterpart?

Anyways,
Awesome test Prasanna. Thanks for beautiful puzzles.
My favourite: Hamle
I did many mistakes while solving like trio, arrow and had to reprint page. I bymistakely entered wrong answer in classic sudoku dont know how, but corrected it immediately as instant grading is there.
Could have completed two more if no mistakes at start, linked and maxed quads.
But Overall i felt i have improved in sudoku than previous performances.
Thanks again LMI and prasanna. Will have to solve remaining ones later.
But wanted to request that" can we submit the other puzzles even after time is over just to check if its correct or not? - at present it displays cannot submit after 111 min "

 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Just right
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Very nice
 How did you feel about the length / time limit for this test? Just right
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth the right amount
 What was your opinion of the booklet formatting and printing? Just right

That was horrible. I don't think I have done this badly on a contest for a while now. It was my fault that I spent way too much time on the linked consecutive and quad max......
