Well, there was a certain sense of déjà vu.

No more from me:(

Well, there was a certain sense of déjà vu.

Rignt, after Mike's first 11.4 puzzle, a lot of efforts have been made to study these patterns :
Code: Select all
DUD
UGU
DUD

D Diagonal Box
U One cell Box
G General Box

and we came up with a lot of high 11.0 + puzzles : Easter Monster and many others.

The proposed pattern here has a symmetry type IV (Diagonal and anti-diagonal reflection ) ; it's a nice one,
but as I said before, using SE for the rating of such patterns is awfully long and boring.

As far as I'm concern, yes.

68 ratings is the record for this game.
Congratulations.

We could probably have found more ratings above 10.0 with much (+) more time.

Out of curiosity, is your computer a modest PC like mine, or perhaps one of these?

    Thanks, Maybe I was just lucky enough.

  • Do we take a rest for serval days to think about new rules ?
  • Or start a new game under current rules ?

Let's wait until at least Thursday before stating again.

If JPF has new rules planned, maybe they should be introduced as a new thread (this one's getting very long).

a few comments after gleaning all the posts in this thread

use a unique phrase to start a new game, and don't use it in any other posts
"N-e-w p-a-t-t-e-r-n (#nn)" is a nice recent convetion (-'s inserted to not use the phrase!)

use a unique phrase for the last entrant to post additional puzzles after the game ends
something like "A-d-d-i-t-i-o-n-a-l r-a-t-i-n-g-s" followed by a list of "grid # rating", would be nice

the post times in the forum are rounded/truncated to minutes
how about just ignoring (no penalty) subsequent dup entries with a date within 1 minute of the first entry that is duplicated

this would help game accounting
