Puzzle 15: Kakuro Domino

Judging by the example, numbers *may* repeat in rows/columns, just not within "words" (like normal Kakuro).

Round 8 - Dissections
Mostly classic puzzles using the concept of dissecting the grid into several parts.

Puzzle 3: Pentominoes 3

Is there exactly one letter per pentomino? If not, can there be both pentominoes without clues and pentominoes with multiple (equal) clues?

Puzzle 4: Pentominoes IV

The example seems to be not unique if you don't specify the set of pentominoes to be used.

Puzzle 6: Slash pack

The example is not unique, e.g. there could be a diagonal in R5C1 instead of R56C2.

Anything is possible here. There can be both pentominoes with no clue and also pentominoes with multiple clues.

You are right, it will be added. In the actual puzzle all pentominoes have to be used.
