Season 20 Preseason Challenge - Solomon's Key


Recommended Posts

Season 20 will begin on January 2nd.  In the meantime, I present a preseason challenge.  If you'd like to participate, we'll be playing Solomon's Key.  I was turned onto this game by my predecessor.  According to him this was one of his all-time favorites, and I have to agree, it's a good one.


Points scored during the challenge will be applied to season 20; so participants can earn a head start.


This challenge will not be judged on score but on the number of rooms completed.  Between rooms you will see a "Room X' screen like this one:



Pause the game here and take a screenshot to post.  You will be awarded 2 points per room completed toward season 20, up to a total of 30 points. For example, if your screenshot shows: "Room 4" (3 rooms completed, starting room 4), you'll earn (4 - 1) * 2 = 6 points.  Additionally the player who completes the highest number of rooms will be awarded an additional 5 points.


There are hidden bonus rooms in this game.  They require little effort to complete.  These will not count for points.


As this is a puzzle game I recommend not watching any gameplay videos unless you're just stuck.
