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!

I have no problem with that Si. I'm sure you'll catch up with us anyways, but I'll even accept that you'll get an extra day if you start the 17th...

Thank you Queen for encouragements! :) Keep trying, keep interviewing suspects. I am on my last city with one clue discovered. I think that in maximum 2 days I will nab the villain! Perfect VH for me, it showed me the limits of my detective! I have a lot of work to do for my next hunt, for sure!

I think is just the need of playing with the big boys and enjoying the game on another level. For me, is the thrill of dealing with something really stimulating, bigger than my condition. The satisfaction is enormous each time I solve a case, even if half of my suspects clammed up on me from the first question. Capturing the villain will be even more rewarding, and I'm not talking about the material reward.

Congrats to everyone who've managed to complete their hunts already, and I'm still rooting for those still hunting. :)

I'd like to begin my hunt on the 17th if that is not an issue. I've some things I'd like to clear up before I begin the hunt. :)

Botsie Boots and Amira Diamond:
logged on in time and are still in the running to be finalists. Ladies, please finish your AVH's as soon as you can so the next round can proceed in its entirety. You are both Potential Finalists.

Everyone Else:
Only those in Saturday's updates with "Finalist" next to their names are going on to the next round. The only "Possible Finalist" going on so far is Si Kosis. Synesence and Ima Vagabond are not finalists. There are still four "Potential Finalists" out hunting. They are Botsie Boots, Amira Diamond, agniswarkhan, and Aknas.
