Tapa Variations

Postby PuzzleScot » Mon 09 Nov, 2015 10:28 pm

During a discussion in Sofia, someone mentioned there was a booklet published with all known 'many' Tapa variations.

I found it here, on the LMI TVC page. (Direct link to pdf download)/ I thought some others might be interested in it too.

There are 123 variations over the 48 pages.

"all known Tapa variations" -- not quite true. The booklet covers all Tapa variations used in the TVC competitions; i.e. up to 2012. After that many more Tapa variations appeared, by Serkan, Prasanna and many others.

Thanks - I've fixed that claim. The PDF clearly has types created after 2012. eg, #94 onwards say "TVC 2013".
I believe Serkan is maintaining this catalogue anyway, and would be interested to hear of any not listed.

Strange. Excerpt fom Serkan's file: "This list includes all puzzle ideas we’ve received so far ... Serkan Yürekli, Sep. 2012". Maybe Serkan maintains the catalogue, but he includes only TVC puzzles, not variations published elswhere.

However, here are three examples of Tapa variations not included in Serkan's catalogue:

Tapa (Unique Clues) by Tapio Saarinen

Tapa (LITS) by Murat Can Tonta

Tapa (Clueless Clusters) by Prasanna Seshadri

(Sorry, I don't have the time to check all Tapa puzzles on my hard disc against Serkan's catalogue.)
