This stuff is fabulous...Gosh, I need a bucket to drink it properly!
~Augustus Gloop, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)


Wonka's Factory, while fantastical, is far more dangerous than you could have anticipated, and the last thing you want to happen is to end up like that poor boy- Augustus, was his name?- who was just sucked up a giant tube carrying chocolate. In fact, you want to get out before another horrible event takes place- and the only way for you to do that, according to the slightly insane Willy Wonka, is to collect five candy pieces.

Better start searching!


- TASK -

Using the five clues below, it's your job to locate the threads hiding candy pieces so you can escape this factory.

CLUES
Quote: Clue 1
I am a figure with a little body and a big head,
I come with many different appearances from many different fandoms,
Some people have large collections of me.
What am I?

I'm a gum chewer mostly, but when I heard about these ticket things, I laid off the gum; switched to candy bars.
~Violet Beauregarde, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)


Violet Beauregarde carries the accolade of being the Junior World Champion Gum Chewer, but even she has to admit that the chocolate factory has such sights to behold that it's time to embrace the world of candy. Much like the magical world, the chocolate factory contains things never before seen, and it's time we let you join in the fun!

- TASK -

Your task is to design your very own, brand-new, never before seen form of candy. This can be literally anything you want it to be, from gobstoppers to sherbet and everything in between. You can use any medium you like to present your newly invented candy, including artwork, digital art, writing, or a combination of all of these! You could even have a go at creating your own commercial or branding to go with it - for this task, the candy-filled sky really is the limit.

- RULES -

-All work must be your own, completely original design
-Any and all mediums are allowed, as long as your work is original (see above)
-All eligible entries will receive one (1) ticket to the prize draw
-Please ask any questions in this thread
- Users must submit all completed tasks (as well as the optional bonus challenge) all together. Submissions must be owled to HINT Forums with BBCode turned off. These are due by 11:59pm, HEX time, on the 24th of July.

"All I've got at home is one pony and two dogs and four cats and six bunny rabbits and two parakeets and three canaries and a green parrot and a turtle, and a silly old hamster! I WANT a SQUIRREL!"
~Veruca Salt, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)


Veruca Salt is always looking for new things to add to her every growing collection. However, with the Wonka Factory containing so many new things that haven't been seen before, her father isn't quite sure which items he should try to sneak out for his daughter. So he's asked you for your help, and in return, he will collect the items that you desire as well for your very own Wonka gift bag!

- TASK -
Your task is create a moodboard of what your ideal Wonka gift bag would look like and what it would contain. From candy to toys to fashion accessories, the choice is yours as to what to include! Along with your moodboard, you must separately (not on the graphic) write a small section of written text of 100-250 words where you can explain the concept of your Wonka gift bag; feel free to include information such as the colours you've used, to what you've included and why.

- RULES -
- All HEX Terms apply.
- Both digital and physical mediums are allowed, so long as the end result is a moodboard that you have created.
- All eligible entries will receive one (1) ticket to the prize draw. Entries must contain both your created moodboard and written text of 100-250 words.
- Please ask any questions in this thread.
- Users must submit all completed tasks (as well as the optional bonus challenge) all together. Submissions must be owled to HINT Forums with BBCode turned off. These are due by 11:59pm, HEX time, on the 24th of July.

"Hey, let me out, it's dark in here. Come on, Mom, I want to be on TV. Let me out, Mom, or I'll gnaw my way out. I'm warning you, Mom, there's a nail file in here. If you don't let me out, I'll smear your lipstick all over everything."
~Mike TeaVee, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)


Mike's thoughts have been scrambled due to his transportation into Wonka's television! What's more, his communications are being scrambled! You're going to have to help the group figure out what he is saying and then provide him with the answer. We have the answers ready to go for you, actually, but they're a bit scrambled too.

"I congratulate you, little boy. Well done. You've found the fifth Golden Ticket. May I introduce myself. Arthur Slugworth: President of Slugworth Chocolates, Incorporated. Now, listen carefully because I'm going to make you very rich indeed. Mr. Wonka is at this moment working on a fantastic invention: the Everlasting Gobstopper. If he succeeds, he'll ruin me. So, all I want you to do is to get hold of just one Everlasting Gobstopper and bring it to me so that I can find the secret formula."
~Arthur Slugworth, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)


Oh no, it looks like Mr Slugworth is quite adept at infiltrating the factories of chocolatiers. After the change of the Wonka factory to Oompa Loompas, he set his sights on a new target. You didn't hear this from me, but us HINTians have our own factory, and we just discovered that Mr Slugworth has managed to get his hands on our branding and recipes. So, we need your help, and stat! After all, we can't have him tarnish our name. So get out your pencils and other art supplies, for you might need them for this task. And whilst you are doing that, we're just going to be over here testing all of the newest creations - that is the hardest job!

- TASK -
Your task is to design a logo and come up with a new name for HINT's chocolate factory. How you design our new chocolate factory's logo is up to you, so long as it contains the new name of HINT's chocolate factory brand in some way on the design itself! The logo and name must relate to our very own Games Forum (that is where our new factory will be, but shh, don't tell Mr Slugworth that!)

- RULES -
- All HEX Terms apply.
- Both digital and physical mediums are allowed, so long as the end result is a logo and name of the business that is of your own creation.
- All eligible entries will receive one (1) ticket to the prize draw. Your entry must consist of a logo that contains the new name of HINT's Games Forum's chocolate factory brand.
- Please ask any questions in this thread.
- Users must submit all completed tasks (as well as the optional bonus challenge) all together. Submissions must be owled to HINT Forums with BBCode turned off. These are due by 11:59pm, HEX time, on the 24th of July.

The clues should provide enough information to find the threads since Forums have the search bar and some of our forums have directories

I concur, you've got heaps of time so don't rush. I always find taking a break and coming back with a fresh mind helps sometimes

This is true. Perhaps I'll just focus on all the other tasks, which should keep me busy for a nice long while.
