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!

Arch Villain Captured!
The notorious criminal Hemlok "the Tarantula" Jaeger was brought to justice by Riza Hawkeye after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Congrats Riza, unless Sal finishes today, you clearly won for our division.

I am STILL in London (2nd city). Been there for TWO days needing ONLY the gender clue, and it doesn't look like I'll get that last clue today either!!!

BTW, you know how people complain about DELHI??? Yeah well that's how I feel about LONDON, I hate it here with a passion and it's by far the WORST city ever for me!

Good luck Sal!

Congrats Riza!!!! You are the very first to finish. You get the unofficial Mach 6 Award for breaking the sound barrier many times over. :) Needless to say, Riza will be in the next round.

Sorry Sherry. :( I am so glad you joined in. You are a joy and a wonderful person. Next time Sherry, you will be one of the first finishers.

Congrats Riza! Very nice going :)

Took me a day and a half to get out of Shanghai. Solved 18 cases before I got all the clues. Sigh.

Sal has no chance to solve today. In fact, this is starting to look like it could take all week. :)
