Re: Divisions A and B 2020-2021

I should have completed through to today (which I think was the last one), sorry for getting a little behind. I've enjoyed the way you've set this round up Adam - I do obviously enjoy the 'sit and puzzle for 90 minutes' format for GP/LMI but its nice to have a round that's a bit different

Re: Divisions A and B 2020-2021

I'm quite impressed you're still trying them Adam - mine have gone in the drawer for 'future review' as I didn't want to look at another loop for quite some time to come...

Re: 2021 WPF Sudoku and Puzzle GPs

I'd also agree with starting with the puzzles you enjoy/are most familiar with first. Of course, it does depend on whether your aim is to maximise your score or just to enjoy the puzzles. After doing a few competitions, I started to realise that there were some puzzle types I could consistently do r...

Re: Division D 2020-21 Round 1

Hi,

I just wanted to say thanks for these puzzles. I did try to email you Adam but it seems like there may have been a problem again - I will try from a different address so I can be sure future emails get through!

Re: WPF Puzzle GP 2020

I managed to catch the 12/13 issue when entering them. Sadly I missed that the Hitori needed the second shaded block as I didn't read the instructions as carefully as normal because of the Open. It would have been my highest score on WPC too :oops:

Re: Some puzzles for your solving pleasure

Thanks so much for these. Haven't looked at them yet, but looking forward to having a go. I found both your WPC and UKPA Open rounds very challenging but fun, so more chances to try some of your sudokus is very much appreciated!

Re: UKPA Open Sudoku and Puzzle Tournament 2017

I just wanted to say what a great time I had at this tournament - I would recommend giving it a go to any 'lurkers' out there. My thanks to all of the regulars who made me feel very welcome, and of course to the puzzle setters and markers and the amazing Liane for making it all happen.

Re: 2017 Puzzle GP

I found C a lot more interesting this time - they were a good mixture of puzzle types with most being types that most people would have seen before, but with some added twists to add interest. I also felt that I would have finished them all in 90 minutes, unlike the previous round where I felt like ...

Hello (again)

Hi, I've finally got around to joining this forum having thoroughly enjoyed the UKPA open tournament last month. To anyone who was there, hello again and to anyone else hello. I've been looking at puzzle magazines for a long time, but have recently found out about tournaments both on-site and online...
