Challenge #148: Rotating Century Puzzle

This is the second time I've seen this problem... and alas, it was no easier the second time. This one definitely had my brain rotating!

 

Spoiler
For this workflow, I approached it with the mindset of trying to figure out the "future state" of each position combination that gave me 100... and then joining back to the original data to see if those future states existed. If it exists 6 times in the data, for each of the 6 possible positions, then those records are the winners!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these puzzle/game type challenges. So cool to see the creative ways that Alteryx can extend beyond just the day-to-day job (even if the day-to-day job also feels quite a bit like playing a game most days!)

 

Thanks for the super-fun-but-also-crazy-mind-bending challenge, @JoeM  @patrick_digan  @brianaburke002 @DultonM !
