I know I didn't participate last year, and I might have the year before- hard to remember. but I always kept an eye on these challenges if I could do them on my own later. glad that I was able to participate in this one and hopefully can finish more


Objects Upgraded: 28 x 1,000 = 28,000
Unique Upgrades Completed: 23 x 3,000= 69,000
Total: 28,000 + 69,000 = 97,000

Fanny Fixit got off to a quick start but lagged a bit in the middle as I tried to figure out what to send her after next, so my score's not as good as it could be. :(

Objects Upgraded: 38 x 1,000 = 38,000
Unique Upgrades: 24 x 3,000 = 72,000

Total: 110,000


Not bad for my first challenge ever! I think I need to do a practice round next time, because there were so many things I regretted about this one. :-\

Handy Challenge is putting down her tools and changing towns to Isla Pardiso for a long resort stay.

But she managed to upgrade 39 items, with 25 unique upgrades.

so 39,000 for the total number
     75,000 for the upgrade multiplier

for an end total of 114,000!

I have a comment or two about a few situations I ran into while playing, but I'll save em for after the closing of the challenge.  Had a lot of fun, though I'm sure Handy never wants to see a sink again!

Having flushed out as many kinds of upgrades as he could think of, a moderately flushed with success Ethan East took a break from making screws and bolts flush and retired home to use a flush before retiring to bed.

Objects Upgraded: 59
Unique Upgrades Completed: 31 30

Score = (59 * 1,000) + (3130 * 3,000)
= 59,000 + 93,00090000 = 152,000 149,000

Had a couple of small mistakes, but overall I think the challenge went quite well. Not sure if there's some optimization trick that I didn't think of though.

Edited to add: Thanks Metro and the team for the short challenge, this was relatively light and fun! :) 2 week challenges are relatively lighter in pace :)

Edit: PM'd Metro with details with regard to miscount of score. Might be considered strategy, so I'll publicly state why after the challenge ends.
