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!

It won't be the entire city, I realized that's a bit too difficult.
I'm just to going to end the landmark that is the source of the gambling, the beatings, and the cruel treatment and abuse, both physically and emotionally, of our Three-Legged Tom. Seriously, the race track needs to go!

Anyone feeling the need to ride a horse, do it now! I'm just gathering up the explosives at Cairo.

You can blow up northeast and south of the race track, since I'm busy running between the silk merchant and caligraphist (waving an accusing finger under their noses and trying to make them confess), but leave the race track itself alone. I'm on a roll there!

Atta girl, Joy! You are definitely a top performer. You are also moving on to the next round. :)

Congrats, Joyful! Speedy going.

I'm still stuck in my second city. This looks like it's going to be a long one. It's not only the repeat clues that are getting me down, it's the fact that half of them are redundant - once you know it's south and west of the detective shop, the fact that it's also west of the tailor and a woman are a given anyway. Grrr. I think I'll have to take a leaf out of Syn's book and blow something up. Maybe Waterloo Bridge...

Well it has been fun but it seems I probably bow out as a contender here. Just needing the gender clue to solve in my final city - but ran out of cases. The very best of luck to all others in the category - and to everyone in the tournament :)

Arch Villain Captured!
The notorious criminal Olympia "Two Thumbs" Dark was brought to justice by Friday Robinson after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Summer,
You are still a contender. No other Jack-A-Lopes finished on day 2.

Congrats Friday for being the 1st Road Runner to cross the line!

Everybody keep at your AVH's. We want everyone to finish with success. Well wishers will be waiting and cheering for the very last straggler.

Friday Robinson was amazing! She not only was the 1st Road Runner to cross the line, she completed her AVH without dropping a single case!

WOW!
