Please note that the instructions and example for the 8th puzzle - SNAKE are completely wrong.

Here is the correct version:
Place a one-cell-wide snake into the grid so that it does not touch itself, not even diagonally. The head of the snake is in the top left cell of the grid and the tail is in the bottom right cell. Numbers outside the grid indicate how many cells in that row or column are occupied by the snake. All the given letters must be part of the snake's body and must appear in the given order (from head to tail). For the example the password is WPC.

Good point! Thank you, Andrey.
This sentence is missing from the Dominion instructions: All the identical letters have to be in the same region.

These instructions are pretty unclear. Thank you for noticing.
Each climber stands under the hill before his climb. So the number of climbers will be the same as the number of cells in the bottom row of the hill (5 in the example).

No such country may exist.
This sentence is missing: Each area must touch the edge of the grid.

It is not so important, but please note that the puzzles 6. Hitori and 15. Domino will contain letters instead of digits.

Puzzle 2. Sandwich
a) Can black cells share an edge?
b) If clue is missing - does this mean no letter between black cells or just a missing clue?

Puzzle 10. Bridges
Should bridges go only horizontally or vertically?

This is the sentence from the instructions:
Clues outside the grid indicate all the letters between two black cells in the corresponding row or column in the correct order.

EDIT: So please note that all the letters are listed outside the grid. If there is no letter outside, the black cells share an edge or an empty cell is between them.
