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!

The hunt has started. This time it's the Weasel that's going down. Wish her luck, she'll need it...

What a depressing, depressing day. Only two clues after 10 cases. I think I'll be out of this round. =( I hope tomorrow is better!

Congratulations s to Aknas on completing her AVH (it is in City News but I think she forgot to post here).

@Si Kosis: I have no problem if you want to start your AVH tomorrow.

Good luck to everyone.

Out of cases, and still one clue from solving Delhi... Quite pleased at solving all my cases for the day, though...

This hunt is going suspiciously fast. My third city on Day 1. But how will the wheel of fortune spin tomorrow? Don't despair Vivian, things could be completely different tomorrow!

Regretfully I have to inform that my inability to read, properly, a clue made me fail my hunt. Good luck to everyone and have fun.

Aknas tied with me for 2nd place in the first round of the Dragons. So there are 3 Dragon finalists with Riza. I will be starting my 2nd round on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Sorry for your loss Andrew. You are nonetheless a very competent sleuth.
