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!

Thank you, Night Queen. The agency is actually more a place to store my spoils at present - yet it might evolve, you never know :)

Congratulations to everyone who took part: winners, runners-up, but mostly to those who met with gremlins such as endless repeat clues and pirate raids, yet who stayed the course. Next time results might be so different......

Congratulations to all the winners! Definitely a great tournament and great contenders. Though I should warn you guys that I'll definitely be back next time to take the crown, after I take care of 'business' in Shanghai. :)

Arch Villain Arrested!
The notorious criminal Wanjala "the Gypsy" Ackermann was brought to justice by Anais Nin after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Finished my hunt after the tournament ended! ;)

Great job everyone, and thank you to Night Queen for putting it together!

Well done you two. Alexis, the Gods of Noir are smiling upon you - that's excellent progress :)

Yesterday I made it to my second city and now need one more clue to move on. But, of course, it could take all day to get that one clue! Let's just hope that none of us meet with pirates. Happy hunting.
