Looks interesting. :)
Just need following clarifications:
What do you meant by "The outlines of the cages may need to be completed."/ "The outlines of the regions may need to be completed". ?
Does it mean it will be border less initially, some parts ?

For Disparity Sudoku " In addition, neighbouring cells in different regions must be of opposite parity" ...
Does opposite parity here mean odd -even,

Thanks for your questions.

1.Yes the secret code is always exactly 3 digits in length.
2.For the Teetotal solution given, the T in the top row has digits 7,4 and 1 immediately adjacent to its arms, giving a total of 12. The target total is discovered during solving.
3.Opposite parity does indeed mean one digit is even and the other is odd.

Hope you enjoy the contest.

David McNeill.

I vaguely remember solving that variant and Modulo is just = Remainder in a division. 9/5, modulo is 4.

In case you have claimed bonus after submitting all Sudokus, but have exactly one wrong submission (with a maximum of four wrong digits), you are still eligible for bonus.

This is massively off-topic, but I simply can't bear to see any more mathematical misunderstandings this week. Remainder in a division is just remainder in division. Modulo is not some function which spits out a number as an answer as you imply with your wording there!

Reducing modulo B is the *act* of dividing any integer A, by a fixed integer B, with remainder.

The correct statement of your example is: 9 = 4 (modulo 5).

Wow what a test. That was really hard. I hope I get my points with my claim. Anyway what is weird is that the time limit was 150 minutes, but when I submitted my answers there was 5 less than 5 minutes left and my timing was 126... That's really strange.
But thanks for the nice test. Well, it took much time but I enjoyed it :)

 Was there sufficient variety in the puzzle types represented? Yes, lot of variety
 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Too many hard puzzles
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Very nice
 Did you like the surprise element in the second puzzle of each type? Definitely yes
 How did you feel about the length / time limit for this test? A bit too many puzzles
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth the right amount


I am honest. I was expecting exactly what you said it was a surprise :)

Sorry about that "too many hard puzzles". I wanted to say that it was a long test with lots of hard puzzles. I would have prefer something like 120 minutes and a bit easier ones, just because 150 is hard to fit in my time schedule, because of 3 kids of mine. But I managed to do well, big thanks to my wife Regina :)

Great test! Thank you, David!
I expected that the surprise puzzles will be without any arrows or circles, you gave us many hints in the IB :)
Anyway, my performance was horrible, I needed to print the disparity sudoku 8 times :(

Yes, it will be rated.


Can we chose that this test is not counted for the ratings?
I want to begin the test, but I don't see the button with the option to take this tournament into account for the ratings.
If possible, I would like to chose that this tournament doesn't count for my ratings.

What a test. Puzzles were really nice and out of box.
After the hint i expected the same surprise frankly.
I needed just 7 seconds more to submit my TeeProduct. That's what is sad part.
Apart from that it was ok performance, will solve remaining sudokus later.
Thanks for nice test David and LMI as well for organizing it.
