Puzzle GP round 7

Post by PuzzleScot » Sat 05 Aug, 2017 10:46 pm

On this weekend, but you should have had an email if you've competed in any previous round... (here)

Anyway, booklet C, "C16-17 Uncounted Skyscrapers". Anyone got any ideas how to solve these?

Wow, that Round C has twice as many puzzles as Rounds A or B, and has many new variants (compared to 1 in A).
Normally I don't glance at C, but this one feels quite different.

Hmm, could've done with a bit more notice about this.

As a heads up, round 8 is next weekend already!

... and it's authored by the Indians. This is the round you do not want to miss (if you're going to Bangalore)

The round 8 instruction booklets are up now. The C paper seems to have lots and lots of unusually light puzzles, which I don't mind a bit, and the A paper has some wonderful-looking combinations of familiar formats. We used to joke about the likes of Magnetic Battletent Snakescrapers; never a truer word said in jest...

Wow - I hadn't looked up last weekend's results - thanks for pointing that out.
