3.9/3.10: I find the arrows very hard to make out (as arrows). The position is clear and will be sufficient to solve the puzzle, but maybe they could be made more clear? RE: Questions regarding WSC round 3 - Pieces of Cake and Tough Cookies - Richard - 16.09.2019
We have chosen to have as much writing space as possible and since the position of the Arrow is most important, we will leave this as it is. RE: Questions regarding WSC round 3 - Pieces of Cake and Tough Cookies - Feadoor - 16.09.2019
3.7/3.8 Distance Sudoku. The vertical clues are confusing, because they are placed on the top of the grid, but oriented in such a way that they must be read (and applied) from the bottom. In my first few attempts at the example, I broke the puzzle very early before realising that I was applying the vertical clues "backwards". Could I suggest either rotating the text by 180 degrees, or placing the clues at the bottom of the grid? RE: Questions regarding WSC round 3 - Pieces of Cake and Tough Cookies - Para - 16.09.2019

I prefer the orientation in the Instruction booklet. That way, the numbers appear in the order they actually appear in the grid. For me it would be much more confusing to remember that, for example, 3 goes below 6 in the first column,if the orientation gets swapped...

I made a small omission in my post - I think the clues should be rotated by 180 degrees, _and the order of the numbers in the clue swapped_. That way the clue is written above the grid, applies from the top of the grid down, and the numbers are in the correct order. This is also the style in Bram's example.

It's just consistent in having the clues read towards the row/column. RE: Questions regarding WSC round 3 - Pieces of Cake and Tough Cookies - JonaS2010 - 16.09.2019
Ah, I see. Never mind, then and thanks for pointing this out |
