[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!
