LMI August Sudoku Contest

This is happening the weekend of 7th/8th of August. Main page details here and there's a forum thread for questions etc here . I'm not quite sure what to make of this, it certainly looks massively different from any other LMI test they've done so far. David Millar of http://www.thegriddle.net is res...

Re: LMI July Sudoku Contest

I could only see results for me (13th) and David (19th) - I thought I'd had a pretty bad show but it turns it out it wasn't terrible. The puzzles were really subtle, intricate and challenging, but within the boundaries of fairness and it is still certainly worth a look even though the event is over....

Re: LMI July Puzzle Contest

I gave it a go this evening, finished 42nd with 690 points; the 125 points I frittered away with bad answer codes only cost me 10 places in the end. I got all but the arrows and the bigger magnets puzzle out in the end, which I'm fairly happy with bearing in mind I can count on one hand the number o...

2010 Polish Puzzle Championship

So this championship has been and gone (and was for Poles only anyway), but the puzzles are online. Bearing in mind the WPC is going to be in Poland later this year, I think this should be of interest to everyone!

You might have seen my name on various interactive...
