  1. Five current and former HOL professors (one of whom is Wastl Hanfstaengl) decided to fly to a different US city (one of which is New York). Each professor decided to pack one bag; the bags were all different colours (one bag was pink) and weighed a different amount of pounds. Match each professor with their destination city, bag weight, and bag colour! 1. Xavier Dalen's suitcase doesn't weigh 44 pounds. Xavier Dalen's suitcase doesn't weigh 38 pounds. The bag that needs to go to Atlanta weighs 6 pounds less than Zoki Phantom's bag. 2. The bag that weighs 41 pounds, Ulol Kimil's suitcase, and the suitcase that needs to go to Los Angeles are three different pieces. Valerian Mandragora's bag weighs 9 pounds less than the piece that needs to go to Los Angeles. 3. The piece that needs to go to Los Angeles isn't white. Of the ochre piece and Valerian Mandragora's suitcase, one weighs 35 pounds and the other was supposed to go to Denver. The heaviest suitcase weighs 47 pounds. 4. The piece that needs to go to Atlanta isn't indigo. The indigo suitcase weighs less than the piece that needs to go to Denver. 5. The luggage that needs to go to Orlando is silver. The silver bag weighs 6 pounds more than Zoki Phantom's piece. 10 scales (April 2019) Send me the solution via Dungeons PM with the subject line: Luggage! SOLVED BY: Prof. Cosmo B.

  2. “The Chaser Race” may have become long obsolete before I began writing it... but now I’m thinking of “The Zero-Second Hit: The Last Great White Whale of the Quidditch Pitch” as an article for the next issue! (The “zero second hit” refers to the accomplishment of answering a question the same second it was asked... which has never happened in an official game!) I’d write about what it is, why it’s never happened yet... and why I can imagine it happening in the near future.
  3. Basil, don't you know who I am?  Why are you munching my leg when I try to see what posts are available to a visitor?  I love you... but this is not how you treat your Prefect!

  4. Adaleine: we're trying to do a decent variety of video games (mostly 'classic' ones that appeared in Muggle arcades in the 1980s or very late 1970s).. Ravena: enjoy the games!
  5. There are only three monthly challenges left for Arcade Club in this academic year. This one will feature the game Frogger! Once again you will be treated to a "Golden Age" video game that did not feature in the OASIS. This game was released by Konami in 1981 and appeared in just about every gaming platform you could think of at the time! Frogger might possibly be the most Muggle of all the games we have played so far: I was actually informed that Muggle children used this game to practice crossing the street! Why is this, you asked? In this game, you control a frog which needs to get to one of five safe spaces. The first half of the frog's trek involves crossing a four-lane road down which Muggle vehicles are driving, ready to mow you down if you misstep. Once you reach the grassy ledge halfway to your starting point, you can catch your breath a bit, but a harder challenge awaits! You now have to cross five lanes of water... except that you can't swim. You will need to hop on moving logs, which go one way, and moving lily pads, which go the other way... except that the lily pads will disappear after a few seconds, sinking you into the water! And once you get your frog into the safe space? You still have to get frogs into each of the other four safe spaces to complete the level... For this month's challenge, you want to go to THIS LINK and play Frogger there. Screencap your best performance (and post it in this thread) by April 30 at 11:59 PM HOL! NOTE: It is strongly suggested that you save a screencap each time you successfully get a frog across the screen; this game's scores disappear fast at "Game Over"! -Participation at all will earn you 5 scales. -If you score 2000 points or higher - or at least get two frogs to safety on 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!
  6. FINAL STANDINGS FOR MARCH 2019 1st place: Cody Lewis - 63910 points (Gold Joystick) 2nd place: Will Lestrange - 21080 points (Silver Joystick) 3rd place: Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis - 4470 points (Bronze Joystick) But you still have a chance to compete against these scores at the Living High Score Board!
  7. The Winter Fling has finally come to an end! It's time to congratulate all the participants and throw in a few more surprises! Amaryllis Storm - 24 scales Arianna Stonewater - 115 scales Cody Lewis - 46 scales Dexter York - 20 scales Emilia Salvatore - 59 scales Iverian Gnash - 84 scales Kendra Givens - 52 scales Prof. Amy Lupin - 59 scales Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis - 138 scales Prof. Tarma Amelia Black - 141 scales Shadow Gaunt - 20 scales Sky Alton - 10 scales Vanessa Tilley - 8 scales Will Lestrange - 81 scales Which means that, although the Green team earned 230 scales and the Silver Team earned 253 scales, the Visitors actually "won" the Winter Fling outright with 315 scales!!! (And what about our newest Slytherin participant, Emilia Salvatore? Basil and Brabas have been fighting hard over her for the entire month without any resolution, although it looks like Brabas will have the upper hand in the end). Finally, we have one last award to give out: the Snake in the Grass Award! This award will go to everyone who earned at least 75 scales (half of the total number of scales possible). So congratulations to Arianna Stonewater, Iverian Gnash, Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis, Prof. Tarma Amelia Black, and Will Lestrange!
  8. Feel free to play and submit your score to the current month's game (or to past games on the Living High Score Board if you can beat the third place score)!
  9. Our next monthly challenge for Arcade Club will feature the game Dig Dug! Yet another "Golden Age" video game that the OASIS missed, this game was released in 1982. The theme of the game is "counterintuitive": your weapons are not what you would think at first glance! In this game, you can move freely through the dirt and air that make up your two dimensional world - but you move through the dirt by digging it so that it disappears! Meanwhile, you are pursued by "Pookas" (basic enemies that can walk through empty space, but not through dirt) and "Fygars" (dragon-like creatures that become transparent to move through dirt). Both can kill you on contact, but the Fygars can also kill you from a short range via flame! You can 'shoot' at your enemies from a distance, but as your 'shooting' ranged weapon is not a gun but a bicycle gun, a single shot doesn't kill them. You need multiple shots to kill your enemies by blowing them up so they pop like a balloon! But the 'preferred' way to kill them is by removing the dirt under a rock so that it crushes your enemy to death... did I mention that the rock can also crush you to death? Oh, and the music is its own bit of fun: the main theme only plays while you move, pauses while you pause, and restarts where it left off when you resume! And there are plenty of other musical surprises as well, but I'll only reveal one: while last month's game had an epic "Game Over" theme, this game is unique for having a "Game Over" theme that sounds like it should be a victory theme! For this month's challenge, you want to go to THIS LINK and play Dig Dug there. Screencap your best performance (and post it in this thread) by March 31 at 11:59 PM HOL! -Participation at all will earn you 5 scales. -If you score 2500 points or higher - or at least make it to Level 2, 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!
