Check Shapes and Sizes, 7X7 - both these tests by Richard have lot of irregular variations.

For 9X9 Scattered specifically, check isc qualifier 2011, Best of LMI Sudoku Tests

Link to original post : Chain Sudoku 2014 - 1

It has been a long time and with the second leg of Sudoku Mahabharat coming up, thought will create and post a Chain Sudoku. This will help you guys in preparing for the second episode.

Fill the grid such that every row, column and chain of connected circles has the digits 1 to 9 without any repetition.

This is of Medium Difficulty.

 How well did the variants represent the theme of the test ? variations represented the theme well
 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
 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

No. Flash is not supported on Ipad.
As such the flash interface here is not (at all) optimized for touch solving.

One thing is that Scattered 6x6 felt really hard to me(took lots and lots of time, almost comparable to Scattered or Chain 9x9), but other than that this contest was great, especially the idea of Surplus.

Ouch. After not doing sudokus for a few months, I broke the surplus 6x6 and 9x9, chain 9x9, two standard 9x9s and the standard 8x8. The solves were all good, but the toroidal was particularly amusing :) At least I quickly could tell that I didn't break it...

I could not uniquely solve Irregular Sudoku (Small example on Page 4) in IB. It seems to be having multiple solutions (at least more than 4)
Here is one of my alternative solution.
142635
623514
251463
436152
564321
315246

Please do let me know if I am making any mistakes while solving this puzzle?

Even to solve offline, I'm not able to login.
In the discussion page, I'm shown as logged in, but when I go to the sudoku page, I cannot find either the login credentials or the password for the competition. Please help!

R1C6 and R2C4 are in the same region and you have two 5s. So there's one mistake. I just solved the puzzle fine.

I don't know what happened, but I got into "the flow" and felt like I had my best performance for years. Pure adrenaline. Wow. Thank you for this experience.
