Tapa Variations List

Most of the puzzle ideas used in TVC belonged to participants. Everyone is encouraged to share Tapa variations ideas which can be included in upcoming contests. We have compiled a list of all Tapa Variations in order to avoid duplicates and make the process more productive by saving time for puzzle idea providers. If you have puzzle ideas, please send them to Gulce or Serkan.

Grading System in 2012

Two different grading systems were used in 2010 and 2011. Considering our two-year experience, we know that some changes should be made to the grading system.
