    Activity 10: It Felt Like Springtime On This February Morning

    SOLVED BY: Arianna Stonewater Prof. Tarma Amelia Black Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis
  4. As the festivities of the Winter Fling continue, it's time for the grand finale. The last - and most challenging - activity of the Winter Fling will be a song identification! But this activity offers a chance at more scales than any other activity so far... 25 scales are possible if you get everything right! If you go HERE, you will find clips from ten songs. What I want from you is the following: -Give the title and artist of each song for 1 scale each (which means 2 scales for both). NOTE: Some of these songs, especially the Christmas songs, were covered by multiple artists. What I want from you is the artist you are hearing in the clip! -For an additional 5 scales, answer the following question: Why did I put these songs in this particular order? All of this should be sent to me via Dungeons PM under the subject line "Winter Fling Songs" by February 28, 2019 at 11:59 PM HOL! Good luck and happy listening!
  5. One of everyone's favorite activities to do in the winter months is to sculpt various objects, such as snowmen, out of the snow on the ground. In fact, in many places, January and February are the best months to do this! For our version, go to THIS LINK, make a snowman, and post your creation in this topic for 10 scales! The deadline for this activity, like all others in the Winter Fling, is February 28, 2019 at 11:59 PM HOL.

    Activity 8: The Muggles Use Lanterns For This!

    Starting off: what does the following collection of words mean? ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE If you think you know, send me a Dungeons PM with the subject line "Lantern 1"!

  7. For the next activity, we will borrow a wintertime tradition from a far distant land: a riddle exchange! I have recently learned from my Head of House that around this time of year, many Muggles in the eastern part of Asia celebrate by showing off older Muggle lighting devices known as "lanterns". They would put riddles on these "lanterns" as challenges for passers-by to solve! We will do things a little differently down here, to more appropriately match the way we communicate here in this school. -For 5 scales, post a riddle (or puzzle, or brainteaser, or rebus, or anything of that ilk) as a comment to this thread, inviting others to reply (via Dungeons PM) with answers. Giving your riddle as text is fine! -The first person to solve a riddle will earn 5 scales; everyone else who solves it correctly will earn 2 scales. -The maximum number of scales you can earn for this activity is 20. Happy riddling!

    Activity 7: Three Words at a Time

    One February night,

    Activity 7: Three Words at a Time

    For this next activity, we will collaboratively write a story about the Dungeons in the winter! There's a catch though: your posts can only contain three words at a time (plus whatever punctuation you need)! Each post will be worth 2 scales each up to a maximum of 20 scales. I will start the story in the next post: good luck and happy writing! One last thing: DO NOT reply to yourself; after you have posted, wait for someone else to continue the story before making your next post! (Otherwise you're writing six words in a row instead of three!)

    Activity 6: Festive Signatures

    As January turns into February, we enter the second half of our Winter Fling event! For this activity, create a signature (a 250 x 100 graphic) and an avatar (a 100 x 100 graphic) representing the Winter Fling for your use during the remainder of the festivities. Post your graphics to this thread by February 28 at 11:59 PM HOL for 5 scales each (PLUS a 5 scale bonus if your two graphics match each other!)
  12. Our next monthly challenge for Arcade Club will feature the game Crystal Castles! Although this game was released by Atari in 1983, it was ahead of its time in many ways: from its three-dimensional graphics to the Nutcracker Suite themed music - including one of the most epic failure melodies of its time for "Game Over"! If you played the game enough when you were younger, you are probably humming those thirteen notes with me right now (followed by two drum beats); if they're not familiar to you yet, they will be very soon! In this game you control a character named "Bentley Bear" who is trying to collect gems in each stage. (The original controller was a Muggle "track ball"; most likely, you will be using a device known as a "mouse" to simulate the effect). Your nemesis is a witch named Berthilda, but you won't see her in most of the stages. Instead, you'll see enemies such as balls, trees (true to its 1980s roots, this may be the first game to depict trees as villains), and weird spiral-shaped green monsters "gem eaters" who will try to capture gems for themselves... and, most of the time, are lethal on contact! You can escape them by jumping, collecting a magical hat, or - if they're a gem eater - sneaking up on them while they're eating a gem. There are plenty of other hidden secrets in the game that may or may not help you out, but you'll have to find them for yourself! For this month's challenge, you want to go to THIS LINK and play Crystal Castles there. Screencap your best performance (and post it in this thread) by February 28 at 11:59 PM HOL! -Participation at all will earn you 5 scales. -If you score 5000 points or higher - or at least make it to the stage called "Tree Wave Level 1" (the second stage in the game), your screencap will earn you 10 scales instead of 5. -The top three scores of the month will get extra scales (25, 20, and 15 respectively for the month instead of 5 or 10) as well as special awards! PS: Feel free to edit your post throughout the month as you improve your score!

    Activity 5: The Puzzle with Rings

    Activity 5: The Puzzle with Rings

    Often people like to wear festive jewelry to the Winter Fling. Solve the logic puzzle below to determine who wore what! (NOTE: You can find the current staff members of Slytherin by clicking the "Slytherin" tab from this page. HOWEVER, as of the time this puzzle was written, Prof. Saeir Darr was a current member of Slytherin staff, so she is treated as such for the purposes of this puzzle.) The five current members of Slytherin staff (other than Will) all wore signature rings to the Winter Fling! Each ring was made of a different metal (one was made of platinum) and was set with a different precious stone (one had an amethyst). Each ring also cost a different whole number of Galleons (the most expensive ring cost 15 Galleons). Match each staff member with the cost, metal, and stone of the staff member's corresponding ring! 1. The piece that cost 14 Galleons doesn't have the opal. The ring made of white gold doesn't have the opal. 2. Aurelia's piece cost 1 Galleon more than the ring with the aquamarine. Arianna's ring cost 1 Galleon more than the ring made of silver. 3. The ring made of white gold cost 2 Galleons less than the piece with the ruby. 4. Aurelia's ring doesn't have the diamond. Scarlet's ring cost 3 Galleons more than the ring made of 14k gold. 5. The ring made of white gold cost more than the ring made of titanium. Of the ring with the aquamarine and the ring that cost 11 Galleons, one is made of titanium and the other is Amy's. (2.2.19 EDIT: Prof. Saeir Darr is currently on hiatus) Submit your answers to me as a PM with the subject line "Rings" by February 28 at 11:59 PM HOL to earn 10 scales!
