Tournoi du forum 2012: Heads or tails

Post by Fred76 » Sun 03 Apr, 2011 12:02 pm

Hi,

Each year, tradition dictates that I organize a small online tournament on the forum http://sudokuvariante.forumactif.com/. Last year, I called it TFOSCAWSC, and Gotroch was the winner. This year, it will be held from 7 to 13 April 2011.

Given the abundance of tournaments at different sites this year, I decided to inaugurate a new formula.
The tournament will take the form of relay, will contain 6 grids (common variants) that I created, some of which can be a challenge for beginners or inexperienced players. Good players should find among the 6 grids 3-4 chunks allowing them to show their skills to solve hard grids.

I know the system I developed is perhaps a bit heavy (6 pdf files to print separately, which can waste a little time for players with a printer slower than others), however I invite you to participate in the right mood in this unusual tournament.

All details are on this page: http://sudokuvariante.forumactif.com/h1 ... forum-2011

Fred

Fred,

How does the relay aspect work? There aren't any marked cells in the grids you posted.

Thank you,

David McNeill.

David, I change the previous tournament's page to result page.
But if you want to try it as a relay, I give you links to the pdf files:

http://www.archive-host.com/files/93749 ... ive_en.pdf
http://www.archive-host.com/files/93749 ... aos_en.pdf
http://www.archive-host.com/files/93749 ... kuX_en.pdf
http://www.archive-host.com/files/93749 ... row_en.pdf
http://www.archive-host.com/files/93749 ... ler_en.pdf
http://www.archive-host.com/files/93749 ... dal_en.pdf
http://www.archive-host.com/files/93749 ... nal_en.pdf

Password to open 1rst pdf is: cestparti!

Then you can open next pdf with A and B codes of grid. then you had to open 7th file (with toroidal codes) which gave you a final code that you had to send via a form.

That's how it worked !

Fred

Tournoi du forum 2012: Heads or tails

Post by Fred76 » Mon 02 Jul, 2012 10:49 pm

The 2012 edition of "tournoi du forum" is ready:

There will be 2 rounds: the first one from 7 to 9 July and the second from 14 to 16 July. The duration of each round is 75 minutes and each round contains 8 sudokus (3 classic and 5 variants).

This year, the theme is "Heads or tails". The first round is a relay and you'll have to chose the rule of the first grid (even sudoku or odd sudoku). According to the choice of each player (and as the difficulty of all grids is not exactly the same according to the choice), there will be 2 separate rankings after this round, and the second round will determine the unique final ranking !

The page of the tournament: http://sudokuvariante.forumactif.com/h1 ... forum-2012

The Instructions booklet: http://www.archive-host.com/files/16558 ... ooklet.pdf

Everyone is welcome !

Have fun !

Fred
