Before the monthly Sudoku tests started, Logic Masters India (LMI) used to host a series of “Sudoku Mock Tests” as preparation before the World Sudoku Championships. Apart from many Indians, a lot of international players authored and participated in these mock tests from December-2008 to March-2010.

With the number of players increasing multi-fold at LMI in recent times, it is certain that many new players did not get a chance to enjoy these mock tests. In the 2011 December Sudoku Test, we present some of the memorable sudokus that appeared in those tests.

This test has 18 sudokus, one type each from mock test 4 to mock test 21. It was certainly not easy to select just one sudoku out of many interesting Sudoku variations in each set. It was also important to ensure that the final set has a good mix of all types. It was fun selecting and creating the sudokus, and I hope you enjoy the set as much.

This test is dedicated to all the authors and participants of the mock tests who helped create such a high level of puzzling atmosphere at LMI.

Length of the test : 120 minutes

Total Points : 960 points

Bonus : 8 points per minute if all 18 sudokus submitted correctly
