Question about Time Bonus:
When will a team be regarded as "finished"?
Submission time is recorded for each individual and the slowest time will be used for calculating time bonus. Is this correct?

it is mandatory to solve the puzzles Ti before going to the individual table? Can a team forego the puzzles T and go directly to the individual tables?
Also, can a member of the team, once solved one of the puzzles Ti, leave the rest of the team to solve the remaining and go to the individual table or should all wait until all puzzles are finished? Will there be proctors to check the correctnes of the Ti solutions?
I believe the mechanism of the round is not described appropriately.

In the Anglers example, there is an unused cell. Could this also be the case in the competition puzzle?

This will all be made clearer in the second version.

Yup, rules do not prohibit it.

Shashigane in v2.


Right missed this one. We suspected we'd need a final v3 with minor edits. Will wait for a day to note anything more and then publish the final version tomorrow.

There is a given table of puzzles in the IB for 4 different sets. Is the puzzle distribution on this table same as in the competition? If not, could you write the puzzle names in the table, instead of writing Puzzle X? Otherwise we will try to search which number is which puzzle, I think this is not an aim of this round.

Note: All words table in this message refer to excel tables, not tables with 4 legs :)

a sentence in the third paragraph (2nd row of 3) is meaningless and should be cancelled. if you plan for a v3....

The IB table is just an illustration. The one in the round will contain the puzzle names too and will not necessarily have the same order or distribution. The randomized names are used in the IB specifically so that readers have a pause and it isn't assumed that a same distribution will be used.

Thanks for letting us know. I'll remove this.
