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!

Joyfuljones gets the unofficial Red Light Bandit award for being the very first to start. Joy had to get a fast start in order to ever catch up with The Shotgun. Good luck Joy!

Started, but it's incredibly hard for me at least, as a starting detective to bring this lady behind bars, in a cage maybe, tied to the bars, in front of the prince (who is shorter than me, sic!), close to the lioness in his palace hall. She tried to kill me 3 times already, she's having fun with me. Knocked me down, stole my socks, tied my shoe laces and left me sleeping in my office comfortable chair with my face covered with lipstick. I think she likes me though. If I fail to catch her, maybe a beautiful relation will replace this chase. I will keep you all updated in the next few days. :)

Just for the record...

The Roadrunner category is now an official category. There are enough participants in both the Roadrunner and Jack Rabbit categories to make it a "go".

Good luck to all!

Of all the nicknames a villain could choose, mine just HAD to name himself "Babyface"...

Oh, and one thing: Make sure to post your capture from the City News here so we can check who came in first. :)

As Synesence suggests, we definitely want you to post your capture. Even if you come in dead last. It would also be great if you want to post your progress just as ThePumpkinKing has done.

Just know this: If you finish at the end of a day, it counts the same as if you finished early in that day. Only whole days are counted. So if the very first finisher comes in on day 3, anyone else coming in on day 3 is on equal standing. It is considered a tie--within your category of course.

So do not give up!
