Unprecedented Badger Outgrowth Prompts Skinning Industry Explosion
Written by Mandorallen
This competition is now concluded. The results will be out shortly.

The year of the Dog has arrived, but for many of us, there is no canine friend in sight. Badger repoppings have blazed the land, leaving many a confused adventurers with gigantic red mushrooms in their hands. To add to the commotion, sightings of large green snakes have been heard amongst cries of "A Snake! A Snake! A Snake!" It is only due to the overwhelming number of badgers that the deadly snake population are kept at bay and out of Aardwolf's main inhabited areas.

 

However, the people of Midgaard - who have gone snakey shroomy badgery mad - will not put up with this kind of crap any longer. No, they want all the damn badgers, mushrooms and snakes gone for good. To this end, the Mayor of Midgaard is recruiting bounty hunters and skinners far and wide to keep the explosion under control.

 

Description:
Your mission then, dear badger hunter, is to track down all the badgers, mushrooms and snakes within the following jumble and round them all up.

This grid is also available in an image format for your printing convenience.

 

When all is done, count the number of each you have accumulated and perform the following arithmetic: Multiply the number of badgers by the number of snakes. Then multiply that result with the number of mushrooms. Finally, multiply your total by 1,000.

The first three people to send the special correct number to Mandorallen on Personal will receive that number in gold. Thereafter, each additional reward will be reduced by half of what was previously given, to a minimum of 50,000 gold.
