What: An Arch-Villain Hunt Tournament
When: Starts Jan. 9 (a Monday)
Who: Anyone subscribed: newbies, intermediate, and advanced players

Prizes!
Winners (yes, that is plural) will win 3-month gift subscriptions. If there are 7 or more in a category, runner-ups will win 1-month gift subscriptions. If you are just starting out or been around since the start of Sleuth Noir, there is a category for you.

Categories will be:
Jack Rabbits (sleuths with less than a million points)
Jackalopes (sleuths with less than 10 million points)
Old Dragons (8 figure sleuths)
Note: You cannot enter more than one category. Your category will stay with you as to where you are when you accept your round 1 mission from the prince.

Competition will be head-to-head. No teams, simply individual. Very simple. To reduce the blind luck factor, there will be playoffs as follows:
2-3 competitors: Best 2 out of 3 with all competitors
4-6 competitors: Top 2 sleuths will have a sudden death playoff.
7-9 competitors: Top 3 in sudden death
10 or more: a 2nd round will be announced where the top half will advance.

You can start your AVH anytime on January 9. Entries starting after that date will not count (except by special permission). If you fail your AVH, you are simply outâ€"so be careful. Subsequent rounds will start January 16. January 16 may be pushed back depending on the results of the 1st round. You are timed simply on the day you finish. NOT on the time of day. Don’t want anyone feeling like they have to start at a particular time of the day to be competitive. Only whole days will be counted, and YES, there may be ties. Any category must have 2 or more contestants to be viable.

Special Note: If January 9 is a bad day for you and you still want to enter this contest, please state so in a reply. Also state what date you can start. Reasonable requests will be accommodated, and only your total days on your AVH will be counted.

EVERYONE join in!

Night Queen, still game. However, I'm currently one or two clues away from solving my current AVH, I would like to start on the 10th or 11th of Jan. if that is okay.

Hi NQ - I'm still in. I've had the travel shots, visas are updated, insect repellent packed, the world in one tiny suitcase.

But with no hotels in Shangri La the question is: do we stay overnight in the (very uncomfortable) llamasery, risk the park, snooze in the train station or ask the tea shop lady for accommodation (but she'd want to talk all night so no sleep). I know we'd be welcome in the Palace but don't those big cats wandering around make you nervous?

Leaving for Shangri-la now. Have to scout the area before taking on the AVH. Looking forward to the tournament. Good luck everybody!

Summer,
LOL. It is Shangri La. You can sleep anywhere in safety. No crime supposedly.

Si and Shawn will be starting late. No problem there. It will not affect the results since only whole days are counted from your personal start to your personal finish.

For those wondering, anyone can still join in. If anyone starts an AVH on Jan. 9, it will be assumed you are in unless you say otherwise.
