In the 57 days from May 4 to June 30 of 2014 in my neighborhood on world A I won a total of 12369 medals and an uncounted number of blueprints. In my world C neighborhood the tracking of data began six days later on May 10 and also ended on June 30. A total of 6166 medals were won in this more difficult neighborhood during these 51 days. These amazing accomplishments were made possible by a tool I call the Secure Scores Application for Excel. The Secure Scores Application for Excel is a fully automated application of the secure scores concept that I have written about in the past in the Forge Hall and this forum. To use the application you must have the Excel spreadsheet program, but you need not be an expert at using it. A partial view of an actual worksheet can be seen at: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gkih41xv28...Screenshot.png To start tracking a Great Building you insert a new row in a worksheet and enter the data in columns A to D. Then, whenever you visit that building, you update the scores in columns E through K and press a key. That's it. The application provides the secure score for each of the five prizes in the contest as well as the number of medals, blueprints, and forge points that each prize pays. The secure score for a prize is the minimum score that, if achieved, guarantees that you will eventually win that prize or a better one. As a rule, as a contest progresses the secure scores continuously decline. Therefore it is essential to update your contest data from time to time. To use the application, you need to download two files: Readme First and App.xls. https://www.dropbox.com/s/w0526w6ck5...e%20First.html https://www.dropbox.com/s/0kyvppy62o...ores%20App.xls App.xls contains the entire application. It has no installation procedure as such. You simply choose the file name you want for it and the folder you want to keep it in and then download it. I do recommend retaining the .xls file extension, however. Readme First contains detailed instructions on how to use the application. How It Works contains a concise, non-math laden discussion of the formula that is used to compute the secure scores. It can clear up a lot of questions you may have. You can download it by using this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2qqbxw46hs...t%20Works.html Finally, I strongly recommend that you browse the webpage file, Prizehunter’s Journal, and its accompanying file, Prizehunter's Trophies, which you can download here and here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/5o5kgds8si...20Journal.html https://www.dropbox.com/s/m6t9bidiqd...0Trophies.html These files chronicle a four to five week proof-of-concept study I did in late March and April of 2014, during which time I won a total of 50 blueprints and 3052 medals on the two worlds I inhabit. They provide a tutorial on how to do prize hunting in an organized and efficient way. If you do nothing else, please examine the table at the beginning of the Prizehunter's Journal. It may change your ideas about how this game is played.
