  • T$C - Powerball Simulator

    Posted by Jason Kibbe on 1/3/2018

    Here's a template for Powerball Simulator.

    Powerball is an interstate lottery game that gives players a small (very, very small) chance at winning millions of dollars at the cost of $2 per play.

    To play, players select 5 numbers from 1 to 69 (white balls) and one Powerball from 1 to 26 (red ball).

    The minimum requirements for this project are as follows:

    1. a list (or five variables) of five random numbers with no repeats for the white balls and a variable storing one random number for the Powerball
    2. either randomly choose the values for the player or allow them to enter the values manually by typing them in when prompted (must be in correct range and no duplicates)
    3. compare player values with winning values to determine the number of matching values
    4. inform the player how much money he or she won based on the number of matches (see link below for payout info)

    Ideas for extensions (any more T$!):

    • Give the player the option to enter numbers or allow the computer to pick for him or her
    • Use white and red balls instead of text for the number drawing
    • Animate the drawing of the numbers
    • Allow the user to enter the number of trials he or she wants to run and have the program track money spent and money won

    Note: This is not an endorsement of gambling of any kind. Mr. Kibbe does not play the lottery.

    More info on the game, payouts, and odds can be found here:

    The odds of winning the jackpot (matching all six numbers) are 1 in 292,201,338

  • T$C - The Frozen Code

    Posted by Jason Kibbe on 12/14/2017

    A gelato store in Maine (like Rita's) offers a discount when the temperature drops below freezing. You save one percent for each degree below freezing outside at the time of purchase.

    To complete the challenge, ask the user for the cost of his or her gelato and the current temperature. Tell the user how much money he or she will save (either in dollars or as a percentage) and how much the discounted gelato costs.

    Note: make sure that no discount is given if the temperature is 32 or greater.

    $4.00 gelato at 12 degrees = 20% or $0.80 discount and $3.20 sale price
    $3.00 gelato at 7 degrees = 25% or $0.75 discount and $2.25 sale price
    $3.50 gelato at 38 degrees = no discount -- too warm!

    Here's a Scratch template to help you get started!

  • T$C - Sweet Sweaters

    Posted by Jason Kibbe on 12/7/2017

    Remix the template provided and follow the instructions below to create a can-you-remember-what-the-sweater-looks-like game! 

    When you play the game, remember the colors of the stripes on the top and bottom of the sweater, the color of the sweater itself, and the symbol on the sweater. Next, when the 'blank' sweater is on screen, click the various parts of the sweater until they match the original. Finally click on the green circle to submit. A green checkmark appears if you're correct. Otherwise, you'll see a red X!


    Below is what the final product looks and feels like, so you know what you're getting into!

    Try to improve on the existing game.

    Good luck and have fun!
