It's time for another month of Creatures Challenges! Things are still very much in the test phase, although hopefully this month will be a little easier to follow along with than what we went through in July. The most important change is the addition of an optional spreadsheet that does almost all of the calculations for you! The list of basic activities has also been shortened, yet it includes a few new activities. Whether this is your first month participating or you're back for more, enjoy this community activity!
Instructions for Automatic Calculations
You are still welcome to use whatever method you would like to keep track of your points. Remember that there's something rather big coming soon to make this even easier! There is now a spreadsheet that all can use. Simply follow these instructions:
- View the December 2016 Creatures Challenges spreadsheet.
- Go to File > Make a copy...
- Save your spreadsheet and include the link when referencing your points.
- Record your activity and watch as your points are automatically calculated!
