Both players came up with the correct response, this one sure was a doozy, huh?
(100*7)+6+3=709

The score is now 38-36, meaning the Conundrum will determine the winner. It will be posted in (expired on 2017-01-06 18:13:58), so be ready

Yep, Haschel wins the 10 points, and the Brawl!

I apologize again for the scoring rules with the numbers round. In hindsight, I would have changed it from the original rules to make it so whoever is closest gets 5 points regardless. I hope you both enjoyed the game despite that flaw in the rules.

Nicely fought, zor; my heart has been racing ever since you said "CLAMOR".

Sorry to butt in, but I only caught up to this game now.

852 = ((5 * 10 - 10) * 7 + 4) * 3

Given a specific target number, there is always a two in three chance or higher (generally significantly higher) that the six numbers you get can hit that number precisely. Getting within 10 of the target is virtually guaranteed, unless you hit a terrible set, like {1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3}.
You don't have ambiguity; you have options.

Damn you Mitillos, I thought I was going to be good to post a 843 as proof it could be within 10

(10 * 10 + 5 * 4) * 7 + 3?

Yeah.

I did stop looking after seeing that though.

You can also get within 5 without hitting the target, with (4 * 3 * 10 + 10 / 5) * 7 = 854.

If you happen to know the factors of 85, I think the most obvious way to get close is (10 + 7) * 5 * 10 + 3 or (10 + 7) * 5 * 10 + 4 - 3, both of which get you within 1.
