Creature Card Corral

Post by Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis »

Fantastic Beast cards are scattered throughout HOL. It is up to you to corral them all!

There will be a total of 50 cards - 10 will be hidden in each of the house common rooms and the remaining 10 will be somewhere in the main HOL forum.

All cards are numbered and most of them have a single red character that correspond to the associated number in the final puzzle. (If you are unable to see the card image, we will tell you the number of the card, the name of the creature, and the highlighted character.)

The bulk of this activity was created by Polaris Black. She was one of the original HOLLERS Assistants and a Head of HOLLERS for several years. Polaris always promoted HOLLERS in all the house newspapers and she loved making puzzles! She was unable to run this activity as she wanted due to her various other responsibilities when she was around, so we wanted to make sure all her hard work wasn't lost.

Each week, one of Polaris's Fantastic Beast themed puzzles and 10 card location clues will be posted. Alternative tasks for accessibility reasons will be made available upon request for the weekly puzzles.

Card locations and puzzle solutions should be sent to the HOLLERS email (hol.hollers [at] gmail.com).

Timeline:
1 November - Puzzle 1 and 10 clues posted
8 November - Puzzle 2 and 10 clues posted
15 November - Puzzle 3 and 10 clues posted
22 November - Puzzle 4 and 10 clues posted
29 November - Final Puzzle and 10 clues posted
12 December (at 11:59 pm HOL time) - All tasks due

Points/Awards:
1 point for each card location x 50 cards = 50 points
Solving the final puzzle = 10 points
5 points for other puzzles x 4 = 20 points
Total = 80 points

If you manage to collect all 50 creature cards, you will receive the Polaris Award!
