UK Puzzle Association initiative - Beginners Contests


Published: 2012-05-30

The UKPA has announced a new monthly series of Beginners Contests. These are contests open for a month, aimed at all those who find the myriad of puzzle contests a little intimidating. You can complete the contest in your own time, although if you are feeling competitive you are more than welcome to treat this as a sprint against the clock. The puzzles will be small, but not necessarily trivial to solve, and aim to get the less experienced solver more familiar with various puzzle styles within the framework of friendly competition.

The first contest features Nurikabe/Slitherlink/Shikaku, and runs from 18th May - 18th June 2012.
