Tapa Variations Contest

Post by eratosthenes » Thu 15 Apr, 2021 9:47 pm

So I attempted the Tapa variations contest over on LMI. I'm no Tapa expert but did anyone else try it and find it really, really hard?

Great set of puzzles, but I found the Hamle and the Easy As totally intractable, and only solved 1 Double, 1 Regional, 1 Power of Tapa and I did solve the Palindromes but just outside of being able to type the solution in (so it would have been penalty points anyway)

I think I can be confident in that it was unanimously found to be a very tough set. It's understandable for the organizers to up the difficulty from the previous series (given the general improvement in speed) but it was quite overdone.
