Is anybody familiar with **Hectoc** (http://hectoc.org) and has any strategies to share? The game’s been around a few years already but it seems we don’t have anything here on the forum yet…

Rules: Six digits from 1 to 9 are given. The target is always 100. All six digits must be used in the order given, along with operators +,-,*,/,(,) and ^. Single digits can be combined into larger numbers.

**123456** -> 1+(2+3+4)*(5+6) = 100

**987654** -> 98+7-6+5-4 = 100

**271127** -> 2^7-(1+1+2)*7 = 100

(^ means power, the first number is the base and the second number is the exponent).
