  1. As long as it shows a score. Normally people post screenshots right at “Game Over” as it reflects all the points they earned during the game.
  2. PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

    Even though the main HOL 'website' is closed, you can still go to all your classes!  If you don't know how to get to one of them because you always used the main page as your Portkey, our Deputy Head of House has prepared a new Portkey in the form of a class list at THIS LINK in the main forum.  Enjoy!

  3. As September turns to October, it's time for a new Arcade Club game challenge. This time we will be playing a fast paced puzzle game known as Klax! Klax is a puzzle game that was developed in 1990 as a coin-operated arcade game designed to be in the same family of games as "Tetris". In this game, you are confronted with tiles racing towards you in different lanes of a Muggle object called a "conveyor belt". You control a tile-holder that can collect tiles from ONE lane of the belt at a time. You can only hold up to five tiles at once, though! You can free up space, though, by dropping the tiles into the area below. But that area fills up too - so you want to eliminate tiles by getting three tiles of the same colour in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally (this is called a "Klax"). Each level has a different objective: maybe you want to create "Klaxs", or maybe you just need to survive a certain number of tiles passing (did I mention that if a tile reaches the end of the conveyor belt and you don't catch it, you lose a life?). So make sure to follow directions, and good luck! Fun fact: Klax was the FINAL game released for the 80s Muggle console called the "Atari 2600", a console whose games may or may not have played a role in Ready Player One. For this month's challenge, you want to go to THIS LINK to play Klax. Screencap your best performance (and post it in this thread) by October 31 at 11:59 PM HOL! -Participation at all will earn you 5 scales. -If you score 3000 points or higher - or beat Level 1, 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!
  4. FINAL STANDINGS FOR SEPTEMBER 2019 1st place: H07chn32 (Emily Spencer) - 24450 points (Gold Joystick) 2nd place: Cl1mb3r (Maxim Trevelyan) - 23250 points (Silver Joystick) 3rd place: Saph1ra (Prof. Amy Lupin) - 14850 points (Bronze Joystick) But you still have a chance to compete against these scores at the Living High Score Board!
  5. Little known fact:  we've all been pronouncing the name of our Basilisk slightly wrong.  "Basil" is an anglicisation of his true Parseltongue name, "Basl".  I know that it's instinctive to want to put another vowel in there at the end (especially if an English-like language is your first language), but try to drop that final vowel when talking to him!

  6. 1. What was the name of my first pet? 2. What number was I thinking of at the time I made this question? Two noughts, five ones, and a two
  7. Momma's gonna buy you a nice blackcurrent. And if that blackcurrant does spoil...
  8. I could have sworn I used to be better at this, but multiple tries and I couldn't beat my first score today - of 6000. EDIT: now THAT'S more like it! At least it's five digits this time... Name from Emerald Cup: Darkn3sss
  9. 1) Felix Felicis 2) Veritaserum 3) Polyjuice Potion
  10. The new school year starts today - so it is time to restart the monthly challenges! We will start off the year with a game that you should remember from the OASIS Emerald Cup of 2018 (if you are at least a third year): Joust! Joust was invented in 1982 for video games by a company called Williams Electronics. In this game, you control a yellow knight riding a stork; as you fly around the field, you will see red knights riding buzzards. Your job is to overpower them... but how? The answer: when two knights fly into each other, the knight which is higher up survives and the other knight plummets to their death! And when you defeat another knight by flying above them, you can collect an egg for additional bonus points! If you read the book "Ready Player One", you will remember that Joust was the challenge for the Copper Key (first claimed by Parzival), the first of the three keys needed to retrieve the Hidden Egg. And if you played in the Emerald Cup for 2018, you should remember that Joust was the challenge for the Green Key (first claimed by "GhostWalker" aka Tarma), the first of the three keys needed to retrieve the Emerald Cup! Don't worry: we won't make you do NEARLY as well as Parzival or Art3mis to 'win' this month! As a side note, my Muggle friends in the Americas inform me that "joust" is actually the "state sport" in the state of Maryland... but their version of jousting is nothing like the version you will be playing! For this month's challenge, you want to go to THIS LINK to play Joust. Screencap your best performance (and post it in this thread) by September 30 at 11:59 PM HOL! -Participation at all will earn you 5 scales. -If you score 3000 points or higher - or beat Level 1, 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! -For additional bonus scales: if you participated in the Emerald Cup for 2018, include your old "gunter" name in the post which contains your screencap for 5 scales. For example, I would include the name "Darkn3sss". If you did NOT participate in the Emerald Cup (e.g. because you didn't join HOL until later), post with a new "gunter" name/identity of your choosing for the same 5 scale bonus! PS: Feel free to edit your post throughout the month as you improve your score!
  11. Looks like my final student year is off to a good start; we have an early lead for the House Cup!  It would be nice to win both cups this year instead of just one...
