Sore legs and happy hearts, what a month! We've strengthened our bodies, but now it's time to strengthen our minds-- by solving a mystery with Kamiyama's Classics Club!
The object of the Pot of Gold is to complete different "tasks" that will be different every month. You'll get small rewards for completing them individually, but receive bonuses if you manage to complete all of them. How much of the rainbow can you complete?
- Everything collected and turned in for these tasks must be done and logged in between March 1st and March 31st, 2016. So you've only got one month!
- When commenting here after completing a task, make sure you label your subject with "Completed", as well as the color of the task you finished. Also, make sure you let me know if you've completed all of them so I can give you your extra reward!
- Please give me a link to your logs with every comment you make. Also, make sure you link me all the stuff that I need to check.
- I might be able to pass out most of the prizes before the end of the month, so please tell me (with a note in your subject or comment) if you want them earlier.
- Pot of Gold tasks can only be turned in when the round is open, so that means that after 12:01PM EST on April 1st, you can't turn in anything even if your tasks were completed and logged in March! Even if you were on hiatus. It's just like with normal games, you can't reply to them once the round closes. If you need to fix a link or clarify something after this time, please reply to your comment; do not edit your comment after the deadline!
- Also, most of the prizes you obtain from Pot of Gold are valid for a set period of time. Special deck donations, however, are an exception - think of them as tickets that you can turn in regardless of when it was won.
1. RED TASK
|Oreki... doesn't seem all that motivated to solve the mystery, actually. He'd rather just go back and sleep if he has no obligation to help. Maybe this is the secret to his impressive deductive reasoning?! Let's try it his way and conserve enough energy to tackle this mystery!!|
Take a break from updating your card post for three consecutive days!
↪ Link to your log, and comment with the three days you did not log any prizes or trades.

5. BLUE TASK
