Hi Liane

Can you clarify whether for Pentopia it will be similar to the example that not all pentominoes must necessarily be placed, but there can be no repeats?

Yes, it's standard Pentopia rules that not all pentominoes need to be placed.

Hi Liane - the contest page current states that the contest is 3 hours long - is that correct?

I've amended that. It's 2 1/2 hours as usual.

Please note there is an amended version of the instruction booklet available. The answer keys for #8 Shikaku and #12 Voxas have been amended to make them more user friendly.

#12 Voxas - The answer key will only cover rows, not columns.
