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!

Finishing today in city no 3, Shanghai. Needing 2 clues. Guess we're pretty much tied Fleur, with Alexis in the lead. Tomorrow will be a thriller. Might be we have a three-way tie, again. Good luck, both of you. And stay away from those nasty pirates!

Congrats Alexis - another 3-day hunt is great work :)

Sadly I will need another day to complete. In final city, needing one more clue but no cases left. In regard to pirates, repeat clues and suchlike our fate is in the hands of the Noir Gods.

GL to Pumpking King and a big salute to Alexis!

Gosh that was a tiresome hunt. Shanghai seemed to alternate West of the Bank and East of the Race Track endlessly. Congrats to the other competitors - again kudos to Alexis and PK I know you will be in shortly :)

By "shortly" you must mean "tomorrow". Had an awful time in Shanghai, although I won a bit at the races at least. Still need two more clues in NY, and out of cases. Congrats with the capture Fleur. You've been superb competition!

I finally made it. Will save my next AVH until I get my contacts though. This one was HARD...
