[SOTR] Puzzle Lounge

Post by tamz29 » Tue 14 Jul, 2020 3:15 pm

Hello UKPA.

I've been running a weekly puzzle contest over at SOTR for a few weeks now.
Though "Puzzle Lounge" is a long-term event, scoring is split into quarters.
The first session is ending this week with 7 puzzles already posted (6 logic and 1 optimizer).

If you haven't already, I'd like to invite you to give it a go.
It's at the usual: https://roygbivpuzzles.wordpress.com/
The highest scorer this session will win a signed copy of Ashish Kumar's Enthralling Sudoku book.
The scores will carry over to the next quarter.

Hope you have fun and stay safe.
Tawan

Och. There were only 3 days left to submit when this was posted. Would love to have fully competed...

Sorry Alan, entirely my fault for posting about it so late.
Session 1 ended in a very close race with James edging out the field.
The results and write up are here: https://roygbivpuzzles.wordpress.com/20 ... 1-results/

I'm glad to announce Session 2 is now underway. (Also at https://roygbivpuzzles.wordpress.com/)
It will run for the next 7 Fridays, hope you have the time to check it out.
There's a Nikoli book up for grabs this time.

Have fun!

There's a little over a week left for Session 2 of Puzzle Lounge.
The latest puzzle was Outis: https://roygbivpuzzles.wordpress.com/20 ... -13-outis/
One final puzzle will be posted this Friday and the contest will close on 2nd October.
I usually keep the submission page up a few hours into the weekend so the deadline window isn't too strict.

Thank you for the submissions thus far. There is a lot of UKPA names in the mix.
Have fun and good luck!

Hello UKPA,

After a long break, Puzzle Lounge resumed earlier this month.
It will continue to 23rd April. The format is the same with one puzzle each week and solvers earn points solving (or partially solving) them.
The latest puzzle was Prime Snake: https://roygbivpuzzles.wordpress.com/20 ... ime-snake/
The winner for this Session will win Nikoli's Puzzle Library Numberlink in addition to being invited for the finals.
I plan to run the 4th and last Session shortly after.

Hope to see you there,
Tawan
