No, the -75K is only once. Also, if you time out at any point, I believe there's still that rule in which your multiplier mysteriously reverts to +1 before any money is deducted.

Actually you failed, because the board is still upside-down. Ctrl + Alt + Left, perhaps.

Square 21.

unlucky 13.

No, my qualm is in that he supposedly disabled Ctrl + Alt + Down. When you Ctrl + Alt + Right, the board is still upside-down.

Er... I sort of get what you mean, but I was trying to create the effect of just pressing ctrl+alt+right. I didn't disable the graphics card or anything.

Pikman picked 21.

Image

Five hundred quid. Meh.




Daikenkai picked 13.

Image

Well... you're out! Er, £30,000 off your score. Wait. That's multiplied by minus 1. Which makes...

Geez. Your negative multiplier wasn't meant to do THAT!!

What was behind the bomb?

Image

Oh. That would've actually added £50,000 to your score instead of £30,000. Heh. Just an extra bit of bad luck to top it off.


Image


Oh yeah, and there's Pikman's win bonus. It's £65,000.

Alrught, Pikman's "I Hate Exams" minigame. I don't know why I actually put that square in the board anyway. But whatever.

Here is a link to Paper 1 of the first-year Cambridge University undergraduate maths exams. Yes that's right, CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY MATHS. Yeah.

You are required to do Question 1. It isn't actually that hard, but I'm marking it out of £1,000,000. So there's your incentive.

You might be interested to know that part (c) of that question was posted by lord_day on the IRC Quote Database here. However, all of Tunc's responses are TOTALLY WRONG.

GOOD LUCK.

Can't be bothered to find out what the line over the variables mean. The answer is 42.

I'm not too concerned with raising my score, actually. The game is just fun.

Haha fail. It was supposed to be easy. I'll give you 10p for being clever enough to not copy Tunc.

Now for your Power Of 10. You've got 8 boards and they all look like this.

Image


The first one contains one bomb, the next one contains two, and so on. You start at £1 and each time you pick a 10! your score goes up by 10. This continues until you hit a bomb. And yeah, just pick all your squares at once.

Go.

Too lazy (and in too much of a hurry) to turn the board.

Here's the first board.

Here's your second board.

Here's your third board.

Eurk! That means you leave with just a total of... £100. Oh well. I needed to get some revenge on you after that round.




Alright, Round 22.

I'm setting it up now but since I've got this STUPID PHYSICS COURSEWORK FOR THE 4TH TIME, I might not be able to get it started until next week. But anyway.
