Deeps breaths. Focus on the target. Envision the path from lane arrows to the pins. Right step...left step...right step... Twist the wrist, just a bit. Release! The ball flies across the high polished floorboards, thrumming like the hum of an engine, curving dangerously close to the edge before cutting back in toward the center pin... CRASH! That musical sound of wood ricocheting into more wood as the lead pin takes down another, and then another. They tumble and bounce, even spin feebly on their sides until the chaos passes. But OH NO! two pins remain, standing like sentinels over their fallen brethren...the dreaded 7-10 split!

Time to dig your bowling shoes and shirts out of storage and shake the rust off your form. The HINT team invites you to join us for one epic game of bowling. But beware because...Split Happens!


This is a multi-round competition. You will be tasked with completing 10 frames of our bowling game . Each frame will be posted in THIS THREAD, and you will have 24 hours from the time a frame is posted to complete the task.

A ticket will be for each complete/correct task you submit within the frame's time limit.
You will be asked to choose a lane position (left, center, or right) which will be randomized to determine strikes for the frame. Strikes earn a second ticket for the frame.
If you miss a frame or submit and incomplete/incorrect task response it will be counted as a gutter ball, but you can get your game back on track in the next frame.
You can join the game at any time even if you missed the opening frames.
Anybody who successfully completes every frame will receive an additional ticket.


Quick Rules & Recap

01. All HEX and HINT rules apply.
02. Frames will be open for 24 hours each from the time of posting and will be announced here in the main thread.
xxx02-A. Submissions made after the 24 hours deadline will not be counted.
xxx02-B. All submissions muse be made in THIS hidden replies thread.
03. Bonus tickets each round will be determined using a randomizer.
04. Include both parts of your entry in the same post - only your first submission will count.
xxx04-A. All tickets earned will be entered into one drawing at the conclusion of the final frame.
05. This contest will end on the 24th of September, 11:59 PM HEX time.

What's in it for you?
Besides an epic game of bowling that won't leave your arm tired, we have a handful of House Points as well as item prizes for 3 people.

1st Place: Bewitched Snowballs + 4000 HP
2nd Place: Solid Gold Gobstones + 3000 HP
3rd Place: Rainbow Balloon + 2000 HP
4th Place: 1000 HP
5th Place: 1000 HP

Frame 7

Despite what your luck has been the last few frames, there are still a few more to go, and you never know how these can change your game! The HINT team is hard at work behind the scenes of the bowling alley, but it seems as though they're missing a few pins.... solve this calcudoku to help us count how many are missing. You have until September 15th at 8:54pm HEX time to submit your entries!

1) Complete the calcudoku below, and submit a screenshot of the entire solution as well as the number of missing pins in the shaded cell to the submission thread.



Click for larger image
The rules of calcudoku are simple. The larger square is divided into sections of smaller squares. You must fill in the appropriate numbers in each section to produce the desired result according to the mathematical operation shown (addition, subtraction, or multiplication). Just as in a regular sudoku, no two rows or columns of the larger square can use the same digit twice. Possible digits to be used are numbers 1 through 6.


2) Be sure to tell us how you're bowling!

xxxxxa) Which part of the lane are you using: Left, Center, Right
xxxxxb) Which direction do you spin the ball: Left, Right

RULES:
1) Your screenshot must include the entire completed calcudoku grid as well as state the number of "missing pins", which is the number in the shaded cell.
2) Successfully completing the task earns you one ticket.
3) Correct lane position and spin, determined by randomizer, will earn one ticket.
4) Include both parts of your entry in the same post - only your first submission will count.

@AccioNox That's correct. One for the task completed correctly and an additional one if you're lucky enough to guess the correct "lucky lane/spin" options for the round.

The submission thread is HERE. In the task post there's a live link, but I'm afraid with our chosen font color it does blend in a bit. Sorry for the confusion.
