Due to the new Harry Potter book, Blacksmithing puzzle, and multiple blockades this weekend, Logical Crafting will take a one week break.

The next and final round should start Friday July 27th.

Our final GCPP game is Mackerel. One lucky winner will get a sloop named either "Logical Mackerel", "Puzzled Mackerel" or "Crafty Mackerel", on any ocean. Runners-up (if any) will get a small prize as well (in round one it was chocolate chip cookies).

Go here to start.

After you are familiar with Mackerel, you can start posting your feedback to the feedback thread in GCPP forum.

Questions about this event should be posted to the main event thread (not here).

The logic puzzle will be posted on August 10th. Deadline for all entries is noon Pacific, Sunday August 12th.

Mackerel round deadline is noon Pacific, Sunday August 12th.

Mackerel logic puzzle is now available.

When you have solved the Mackerel logic puzzle, send an email message to otherwhen@frontiernet.net . The subject line must include your pirate name, ocean, and "Mackerel". For example, "Lordkalvan, Midnight, Mackerel". In the body of the email message include the following information:

1. For each name in the logic puzzle, list the pirate name, loom (A-F), target pattern (1-6), and type of bonus(es) scored after the screenshot was taken. You don't have to make a fancy table, just plain text is fine. For example:
Lordkalvan, D, 3, Zebra

2. Explain how you determined the solution to the logic puzzle.

3. Assuming you win, what is your preference for the name of your sloop? The name can't already exist on your ocean. Choose from "Logical Mackerel", "Puzzled Mackerel" and "Crafty Mackerel".

4. If your forum name is different from your pirate name and your sig file does not include your pirate name, you need to mention in your email message what your forum name is so I can match the email with the posts in the feedback thread.

Only your *first* email message counts! Please, no attachments. The first person to submit does not have any advantage over a person who submits at 11am Pacific on Sunday.

Email must arrive no later than noon Pacific on Sunday. Posts to the Feedback Thread must be made before this time as well. Sloop will be awarded to the contestant who has a perfect solution to the logic puzzle, a thorough explanation of how the puzzle was solved, and great post(s) in the feedback thread.

Worthy runners-up will get a smaller prize.

Winner(s) should be announced some time on Tuesday (if not sooner). Since this is the final round of Logical Crafting, accumulated runner-up prizes will be announced on Tuesday.

This one must be tough - only two entries so far!

I'm extending the deadline until 5pm Pacific today (Sunday).

Solution is now posted

Congratulations to the winners of the Mackerel round! We had two players who submitted correct solutions, good explanations, and also gave significant feedback on Mackerel.

The winner of the sloop "Logical Mackerel" is Armillaria of Midnight. It was an extremely difficult judgment to make. Because of the closeness of the tie, Donall of Hunter gets "pie or cake" level of runner-up points added to his previous points.

This page will remain online indefinitely, however it will link to the latest version of Mackerel on GameGardens. I tried to design the logic puzzle so that it will still work correctly with any new version of Mackerel.

Cumulative Runner-Up Prizes

The following contestants have accumulated runner-up points.
  • Magrat of Viridian - 3 points
  • Tanonev of Sage - 3 points
  • Donall of Hunter - 3 points
  • Malach of Cobalt - 2 points
  • Armillaria of Midnight - 2 points
  • Shooshy of Sage - 1 point
  • Dellabelle of Viridian - 1 point
  • Sagefire of Viridian - 1 point
  • Zaybex of Sage - 1 point
1 point: Your choice of cookies, chocolate chip cookies, or a pirate greeting card

2 points: Your choice of pie, exotic coffee, scroll, or any medal costing 5K + 5 dubs

3 points: Your choice of cake, any medal costing 10K + 10 dubs, any cat, or any dog

Each runner-up should contact me via PM or email, providing several possible days and times that would be convenient for collecting your prize. I'll get back to you on which one suits my own schedule. Prizes must be collected by September 1st.

In addition, each of the winners of sloops and most of the runner-up winners will be nominated for an award for GCPP Round 2, at a level similar to the one that resulted in the "Unchiseled Potential" trophy ffor GCPP Round 1 participants. Please note that all I can do is nominate; I'm not judging the participation awards for GCPP.
