Like last year, we solved 24HPC on May 3-4. Recently I managed to have time to solve the remaining. I do not remember my strategies clearly, so here are just a few comments.
Scores are here. Note that my skipping round was my best result, with the suggestion from Kota.
Nice theme. I do not understand if
2-cell error in the 2nd Missing Magnets: my last solved puzzle.
Suffered from irregular grids. Classic-first strategy was better.
I remember that I ignored the range 1~8 in Japanese Sums.
I had to hurry in ABCtje, and that caused a minor error.
Logical Kropki is so comfortable.
2-cell error in Minesweepers with Duds, and I found another error in Minesweepers. So my true score is 685.
The trouble was that I gave up Magnets on my half way.

High-pointers are my favorite. Maybe some of middle-pointers were harder for me.
Major error in cheap Countries.
Sudoku always reduce my time in such
Good difficulty this year.
I thought a spell as "Edison"; I have never heard the N is written/pronounced in Japanese.
Tough round. My worst decision was that I tried Foursome and got nothing.
Error in Banknotes. I could not finish the last steps of Skeleton.
Large Tapa LITS and Masyu Battleships are especially awesome.
No problem, as usual.

Made a major error.
Belgian V-W Regions were interesting.
