Whilst I feel the concept of "is it a sudoku" is a little too experimental for a world championship, I find its exclusion because it was too puzzle-ish to be a little strange. If you were erring on the side of caution here, the best thing would have been to can the entire round - but given that didn't happen I felt that the Hamle clues resolved very quickly using simple sudoku-like logic scanning rows and columns, and would have been perfect for the concept of the round.

I imagine its evil "logidoku" twin could also have been made sufficiently awful to solve too!

Can't say I much enjoyed the Touchy puzzle (these are in general not particularly fun to solve), so I'm glad that didn't make the cut. The instructionless also looks pretty tricky, but I haven't yet started to solve it.

The test is now over. Thanks to all 133 participants who took part. Congratulations to Kota Morinishi, Tantan Dai and Michael Ley for taking the top three positions in this contest. Among Indian participants, Congratulations to Kishore, Swaroop and Harmeet for finishing at the top.

Killer Joker was the least solved but also had the most accurate submissions. And the most solved sudoku was alphabet sudoku.

The number 4 is the joker. It takes the value 8 to make the sum 16 in the cage on the top left.
