[SOTR] Nikoli Hurdles 4

Post by tamz29 » Sun 02 Oct, 2016 7:28 pm

Hello UKPA!
It's been a while...

Most of you are already familiar with events at SOTR and it has been a quiet year.
Nikoli Hurdles 4 has just begun and entries are open until 29th October.

Same rules. 8 puzzles to be solved successively. Do mind the answer keys, though.
This set of hurdles feature usual suspects (like LITS and Masyu), and some novelties (you'll have to see for yourself :D )
The prize this time is Nikoli's Puzzle the Giants 2016 issue.

You can ask questions here, or over at SOTR.
Have fun!

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.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

As with previous events, the novelties were met with either 'it was my favourite!" or "I hope to never see it again".
Couldn't tell whether I did the right thing or not.

Maybe the timing wasn't good since the WPC/WSC is happening in a couple of weeks.
But if you haven't done so, I hope you'd give it a go. :P

Thanks Tawan,
I enjoyed it (as always with yours) - as you say possibly a bit too close to WPC/WSC - but a pleasant distraction.

Hello,
Hope you all had a great time in Slovakia the past week.
This will be my last reminder for Nikoli Hurdles 4 - there's about 4 days left to reach the finish.

Always good to see UKPA friends right in there ;)

See you next time!
