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!

Sorry everyone but I am not in the tourney. It's just a fluke that I started an AVH on the same day. The reason is that I don't play everyday and when I do play, I usually don't do all my daily cases. It seems pointless to participate. Sorry for the mix up. Good luck on your hunt everyone :-)

I finally finished Delhi and moved on to Shanghai, my third city. Can't wait until I get to NY and have a PE contact I can use...

Do you have some cheerleaders behind you King? Do they encourage you, the matter that you go with the speed of light? Come on, you can share your little secret with me. It's just between us, I swear. Nobody will know! :)

Knock on wood. Rap rap rap.

Nobody has had an AVH mishap. That is super, super great considering how many of you are pretty new to the whole AVH experience. I expect there may be some finishers later today. For the rest of you, do NOT be discouraged. The final outcome of this contest does not rest on one single hunt.

Also, there will be a few that will start their AVH's today.

One final declaration. I would like to bestow everyone with the dreaded, Repeat Clue Award. Myself included. ;)

My hunt moved to the second city, NY... I don't have enough cases to go there today so I think I lost 2 cases in the hunt. Well, we'll see tomorrow how this progresses.
