Think you know a lot about Sleuth Noir? Prove it. Answer my questions. Anyone is eligible to participate. If there are at least 10 interested participants, then this contest will go forward. You MUST post here to be considered eligible. Signups will be open until January 19, 2012. Questions will be posted at an undisclosed time on Jan 20, to keep things fair. A little brain exercise is always fun, no? :)

Format: 20 questions of varying difficulty, which will be posted below should there be sufficient interest. You must have the correct answers to all questions, numbered in order. Multiple-part answers must be separated by commas, and the answers must appear in the correct order to answer the question. All dates must appear as such: “April 15, 2012”.

Prizes: First Place: $500,000 Sleuth Dollars. Second Place: $250,000 Sleuth Dollars.
It is possible that there may be no winner at all. Only one entry per detective is allowed, and no second detectives are allowed. It is in your best interest not to share answers, as all answers can be found on this site.

Method of Submission: Please PM your answers to me, do *NOT* post on this thread. If any part of any answer is posted by anybody, the contest will be over and no one will win anything. The fastest correct submission will win first place, and the second fastest correct submission will win second place.

I am a grammar nerd, so please mind your spelling and capitalization. If there are any questions or concerns, PM me and I will reply as soon as possible. Most importantly, have fun! :D

So as not to waste the lives of the competitors by making them stare endlessly at the message boards, it has been decided that a range of time will be introduced as to when the questions will appear. They will be posted sometime between 07:00 and 11:00 Sleuth Server Time on Friday January 20, 2012 (morning). Be on the lookout to be the first to see them. This will mainly test your powers of observation, research, and careful reading. To best prepare yourselves, it is suggested that you take the time to explore the site. See where the click of every button takes you.

Each player is responsible for any and all personal expenses incurred during the pursuit for the answers.

There is still plenty of time to sign up. :)

This just shows that I should read the rules more carefully - I hadn't noticed that speed as well as accuracy was involved. That probably rules me out, given my time zone and when I can be online. Oh well. I'll still have a crack at finding the answers, just for the satisfaction :)

The last day for entry submission is January 26. The names of the winner(s) will be posted on January 27, assuming that at least one/two people have submitted winning entries by then. After the announcement post has been made, you are all free to discuss the answers. I fully expect these questions to take some time; however, I do not underestimate your skills ;)

Please be advised that questions pertaining to Cairo have been kept to the barest minimum, since I know not everyone is able to access it yet. The other questions are fair game and can all be answered with a little detective work. Check your answers and be certain before you submit. **All answers can and MUST be found on this site. **

Disclaimer: Riza Hawkeye reserves the sole right to arbitrate and make the final judgment on any and all entries.

See you all tomorrow morning, and good luck! :)
