Poe’s Puzzle: Casting Charms with Division in Windy Hollows

While strolling through the streets of Windy Hollows, Frankie suddenly received a message from an owl. It is very unusual for something like this to happen, even in the land of Windy Hollows, but any time you get a message like this, you know it must be from one green character… Poe. In his letter, Poe asked Frankie for the help of a Jumpee to brew a Charm. However, Poe is always a mysterious frog and will NEVER just tell us what he wants us to do! Instead, he wrote to Frankie with a math challenge for us to solve that you can read below:

Hi Frankie,

It is so nice to see you in Windy Hollows! I know you are a busy dog, but you should hop in here a bit more… Haha, get the joke? Because I’m a frog… Well, I thought it was a good joke. Anyways, I would love if you could help me out! I need a Jumpee to cast a Charm for me, as my frog hands cannot quite hold a wand very well… Do you think they can follow these steps to find the Charm I need created?

Add up my three lucky numbers: 15, 3, and 2.
Divide the sum of your answer in half.
The answer will lead you to the number of different ingredients in the Charm. Next, follow the stony path to the Charm Creator and open up our ancient book of spells. Go through the book and find the Charm that has the matching number.

Thanks!
Poe

Are you ready for your next BroomBall Match? Challenge your fellow Jumpeez to the ultimate BroomBall Match in Windy Hollows! Whether you are on team Dragons or team Unicorns, we are all in it to win and have fun with our Jumpee pals. One can always use a few inside tips to help beat your opponent; here are some tips and tricks to help you give you the cutting edge information to help you win Broomball:

  • First and foremost, get those keyboard controls ready so when the countdown hits “GO” you take off flying. Use the arrow keys to move around and the spacebar to increase your speed!
  • Remember that sharp, last minute turns will help you throw off your opponent when you are attempting to score.
  • Try flying horizontally towards the orbs to help increase your chances of getting an orb.
  • Avoid the obstacles by flying either high near the ceiling or low close to the ground.
  • Use your side arrow controls on your keyboard to help move in and around obstacles. This will also help you maintain your speed.
  • Always try to fly higher than your opponent when bumping their orbs to prevent them from scoring. Flying above your opponents gives you more of a chance to bump their orbs without losing your own.
  • Avoid flying too close to the bleachers and the score boards. These can act as obstacles preventing you from scoring.
  • Shooting for a goal diagonally helps increase your chance of scoring.
  • Don’t spend too much time focusing on bumping your opponent. This could create a distraction and can even cost you the match.
