Nikoli Hurdles 3 is finally ready.
So we’ll have 8 puzzles to be solved in chronological order starting at Puzzle 1 and all the way to Puzzle 8.
Everyone who reaches the finish line will have a chance to win the latest Nikoli Penpa 2016. For Nikoli Hurdles 3, we will be revisiting Rock-Paper-Scissors to determine our winner but with a little twist. In a knockout tournament, we lose half of the competitors in every round, eventually ending with the sole winner. This time, 5 solvers will get an extra-boost to increase their odds of winning.
The first solver to reach the finish line will enter the tournament in round 3! That means he/she will compete with only ¼ of the solvers. That’s a huge advantage, but does not necessarily mean that he/she will win. Additionally the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 29th solver to reach the finish line will start the tournament from round 2. Those 4 will start competing with half the original line-up of competitors. The rest is fair game.
