2017 Sudoku GP

Postby detuned » Thu 19 Jan, 2017 10:51 pm

Well round 1 has been and gone, but it's probably worth having a forum thread for this. In an attempt to reinvigorate my blog, I've written up some thoughts here:

For anyone reading this thread and wondering what the Sudoku GP is, it's a series of 90 minute competitions spread over the year. The format is fairly standardised but the quality of contributors is unparalleled - these puzzles are basically the best Sudoku puzzles in the world and you can solve them for free!

I'm sure it would have been possible to treat the "Czech" theme in a more varied way.
Using the letters C, Z, E on 10 sudokus and the flag on 1 sudoku seems a bit reducing of what can offer this country...
I would be pleasantly surprised if the mathdoku, fuzzy arrows and lonely number are also linked to the "czech" theme.

Damn. Conceding 100 points to Heather, having just caught her in the last round, was not the plan. I even thought the round had gone OK, but making some sort of mistake on the highest-value classic clearly didn't help. A very fair round, I thought.

Are you keeping score via the official methodology? If so, you've got the safety net of a couple of duff rounds to throw out :)
