Weekly Challenge #11

TheDrone7

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night to all amazing replers! 2 weeks ago, we started weekly challenges 3rd month with the challenges focused on math!

For the new users who did not know about these, the total score of the 4 challenges held within that month is your score at the end of every month. The one with the highest score at the end of every month will be awarded free replit hacker plan!

To post your submission, just publish your repl onto apps and make sure to include the tag #weekly{n} and replace {n} with the number of the weekly challenge in the title. For example, for the submission to this weekly challenge, publish the repl that contains your submission on apps and include the tag weekly11.


WEEKLY 10 results

At rank 1, we have @VulcanWM with a score of 19!

At rank 2, we have @MattDESTROYER with a score of 17!

At rank 3, we have @GhostKing007 with a score of 15.

You can check out your own score (if you weren't in the top 3), at the website - https://weekly.thedrone7.repl.co/

Note: If you did weekly 10, your week 9 and week 10 scores are interchanged, I mistakenly entered the weekly 10 scores in weekly 9 but I was able to recover the weekly 9 scores and they are in the weekly 10 column.

And that's it! Now, let's get back to this week's weekly challenge.


POLYOMINOES

For the second week, you have to research and show the results of your research on POLYOMINOES! Just to avoid any confusion, I'll let you guys know what they are.

Polyominoes are shapes formed by combining any number of equal-sized squares by their edges. One of the most common places where you can see polyominoes are in the amazing game TETRIS!

Remember how each shape in Tetris is made up of 4 equally sized squares? Yep, those are what polyominoes are, except you can use less or more than 4 squares. They are mostly for recreational purposes and are used a lot in puzzles and such fun stuff.

Go ahead and make some fun puzzles using polyominoes yourselves! Or maybe discover a new use for these fun shapes! Who knows what you can use them for!?

For those who might be wondering: You can do anything as long as it has something to do with polyominoes! ANYTHING! That's how this month is going to be working.

Happy Learning replers!


Good luck to all the replers, have fun and hack away!

Can I make anything that involves just a page of polyominoes and the rest not related to it?

DellWithGaming

Is it possible you can give an example

TheDrone7

@DellWithGaming there literally is one in the post itself! Tetris. There is also a game where you try to adjust a bunch of polyominoes on a chessboard. If you're creative enough, you can even represent polyominoes without any graphics too!

GhostKing007

@TheDrone7 or 11 months too early depending on how you look at it (assuming there's still going to be weeklies by next year and that the topics for each month will stay the same)
