|No more daily TAPA? Noooooo, |
What a pity... :-(
Thanks very much to all the organizers and, expecially, Serkan: it was a great contest (despite my mediocre results, but I can't expect better :-)
Looking for next TVC to have more tapa puzzles!

|Thanks so much to Serkan and all for the great puzzles and great contest. I especially liked the extended number of weeks. And the system works so well. I hope there will be another contest next year. |
If there is, I have one suggestion that might not be too hard to implement. In the "Other's Solves" section, would it be possible to add a "Pause" button in addition to the stop button? After pressing the stop button, the start button clears the grid and starts the solve over. I would greatly enjoy the ability to pause on a solve to try to figure out what the next step should be and then continue from that point.
Another wish (which might be more difficult to implement) involves "reviewing" a puzzle. I sometimes clear previously solved puzzles and rework them. I would like to be able to confirm that my re-solve is correct, especially for the larger puzzles.
Thanks again, and I hope you are feeling much better soon, Serkan!

Nice puzzle for the end :) my mouse kinda died during this so I kinda lost like 45 seconds but its ok :)
|Classic Tapa Contest for 2016 is officially over. sai won the contest, by a huge margin, as most of us were expecting. EKBM and Prasanna had a very close contest, with EKBM jumping ahead in last few days. Congratulations. |
Despite the minor hiccups on few days, I hope everyone enjoyed the contest. Like every year, we will be posting some stats soon.
|Personally, it would have been very exciting to have Prasanna at the second place, but he can take consolation in the fact that he has lost to none other than the World Puzzle Champion.|

|I could solve this puzzle logically upto this point. I would like to know apart from intuition of using uniqueness at center, is there any other steps if others can figure out ? |

|There is a hard deduction on the left side. You can't get past the 113 in R8C2. If you were to go past the left of it R7C3 would be an isolated cell because of the 14 and 24. The 22 blocks passing down the bottom. This means that section of the Tapa wall must connect down the bottom of the grid.|

Some statistics about CTC 2016
Who would have predicted in 2012 that I would be one of the most consistent ones in a future edition? :P I still remember the drastic ups and downs from that year. Its sad that that one mistake came because of a double click around a 1-1 corner clue, would have been nice to have perfect accuracy like deu :)
