Nice tips James, even if the reporter does appear to have struggled with counting them ;)

Re: [SOTR] Nikoli Hurdles 4

The same combination of quality construction and some unusual type selection that I've come to expect from Tawan.

Thanks for another fun set of puzzles.

Re: UKPC Results and 2016 UK WPC Team

Thank you to the puzzle authors, testers and organiser. Really enjoyed the filled pentomino type and the hidoku/slitherlink layouts worked nicely.

Re: [SOTR] Nikoli Hurdles 3

Some very nice puzzle as usual from Tawan. Thanks for your efforts.

Good to see some of the less common Nikoli types, with perhaps the exception of the final puzzle where I will be happy to not see its like again.

Congrats to those who qualified. Nice selection of puzzles, both triple block and abc yajilin were great variants I enjoyed solving. Thanks to all the constructors, testers and organisers.

Re: 2015 UK Puzzle Championship

Can I assume the contest will run Friday afternoon to late Monday evening? If not I'm going to struggle to compete, it's an unfortunate weekend for me.

Re: 2015 Puzzle GP

Also this weekend I won't have to enter answer keys, which is good given I managed to botch 3 this round including some I'd 'double checked' :x
Really liked the all black Castle Wall.

Re: Tawan S's Nikoli Hurdles II

Up to the usual Tawan high standard. Some nice less common types in the second half. I'd also put 6 & 8 as the standouts.

Re: LMI - August Beginners Puzzle Contest (28/8 - 2/9/14)

The unexplained variants worked neatly with the puzzle types.

It was certainly nice for me to see a Yajilin contest. That's gonna be about the only time you'll see me ahead of James in a puzzle leaderboard :D

Re: Japanese Number Place & Puzzle Championships

The puzzles were a really fun set with lots of new (to me at least) types.
Puzzles 2/4 were a nice example of culture advantage/disadvantage.
Point allocation seemed rather questionable overall but the answer codes were very user friendly.
Definitely recommended.

I can recommend these puzzles even to those who are not big fans of battleships. Solves flowed well and round 2 was particularly nice.

Re: 2014 WPF Puzzle Grand Prix

Really impressive UK showing, especially Neil.

I found the answer keys to be rather onerous. I'm not surprised I botched one also.

Re: croco-puzzle

Impressive work James. I managed to win my first daily puzzle earlier in the month when I'd never been in the top 3 before. Not coincidentally this was the first daily puzzle run of the new Yajilin applet. Hopefully it makes plenty of appearences in the league.

Thanks Chris. I'm afraid it is more averages catching up than any recent rating progress. Was a nice surprise to get the email but 3kyu could take a while at this rate.

Re: UKPA Puzzle Championship 2013

I was able to keep making progress through the entire two and a half hours, getting the really enjoyable thought of "I didn't think I was going to be able to solve that puzzle, but i pleasantly surprised myself by being able to do so". I even ended up feeling at the end that with another ten minute...
