Competitive is comprised of: Masyu: 37 points Spiral Galaxies: 56 points Yin Yang: 34 points Snake: 89 points Kropki: 295 points Total: 511 points :shock: Doesn't matter what the type is, having anything be 60% of a GP test is rather disappointing.

Re: Puzzle Marathon 2015 - LMI

First I've heard of this! In the last couple of years Deb usually got me to make a puzzle, which I took great pleasure in making much too hard, so I've got to say I'm quite miffed by being completely overlooked this time round. Deb had the rule in place that he doesn't want to use the same authors ...

Re: 2014 WPF Puzzle Grand Prix

It was a fun round. A bit too bad about the printer isues, but happy I'm still well placed.

Re: UKPA Puzzle Cruise (2-3 July) ** started **

Re: 2011 UK Sudoku Championship (11-12 June 2011)

Had fun. Think I did okay. Forced myself to do all classics, not my strength, but wanted the practise. They still take up too much time I feel. I especially liked solving the frameless sudoku. Nice to see my own idea pop up in a test. It helped that I knew the tricks. Sadly I made a typo in the answ...

Re: Evolved Terrestrials (Anurag) 16-17 April 2011

I'm not sure if I should put that in here but I can't send private messages but True-False Nurikabe has alternate solutions. I couldn't figure out why my answer key was incorrect till I figured that out,
