Game master can use the embedded scoreboard to retrieve information about the played games, the success rate, the average required time and so on. Additionally, the game master can display in the in-room screen the best team together with the best remaining time for each room. Moreover, game-masters and owners can automatically upload to their website the game statistics.
Additionally, game masters can create a fully customizable leaderboard for each room, accessible from any device connected on the same network. Use this feature to display game statistics on your lobby by employing a low-cost tablet or a monitor equipped with Chromecast.
In general, Houdini MC supports a leader board for each room. To start with, go on Settings->General Settings and enable the “Keep Score and Track Statistics”

Every time a game ends, a pop-up window appears. The game master fills the Team’s Name (together with some comments – visible only to the webmasters such as Game master name, Damaged locks etc)
To monitor the statistics, open the “Scoreboard” menu.
This form illustrates some basic statistics about the played games, the success rate, the average remaining time etc. To modify the entries select Display “ALL”, edit an entry and press “Save”.
HMC score takes into account the available remaining time together with the number of the given clues. To start with, every available second gives the players one HMC point. Thus, in case of 60 seconds left, the HMC score is equal to 60. Game master can “punish” the teams based on the given clues. The scoreboard holds information about the number of the given clues. Assign a penalty for each given clue by using the “Clue’s Penalty”. Select a value and then press “Recalc” button. Overall, the final HMC score is equal to [Remaining_Time in seconds] – [Number_Of_Given_Clues] X [Clue’s Penalty]
