Welcome one and all to the annual Sleuthville AVH Tournament 2012! I would like to extend a special welcome to the Sleuth’s oldies who have recently returned to the game, and a happy hello to the new players who have joined the community. In the spirit of friendly competition, and in the hopes of fostering new friendships and community togetherness, I hope that both new and old will join in this competition.

The format will be 16 detectives, randomly paired off into teams of two by a third party, to face one other team. (This hunt will go forward only if there are enough players participating [16]. If not, either the entry date deadline will be extended or the tournament will be cancelled altogether. )

For this competition, players going through Cairo will have one day taken off of their totals. The winning team will be the one with the lowest combined number of days for hunt completion. Failed hunts will not count against you; you will not be disqualified. If you fail your hunt and would like to start another, you may, but the day count will start from the official start date of the round.

The rules:

- As soon as you are matched up with your partner, please POST your team name on this thread.
- PM me as soon as possible if you find that your hunt goes through Cairo, so I can keep accurate records.
- In the spirit of competition, trash-talking is allowed, just as long as it is friendly and appropriate.
- If you are unable to compete in a round for whatever reason, you are allowed to ask someone to sub in for you for that round only. This privilege may only be used once, and only in emergencies. The player who is subbing in for you may be anyone who is not competing in the current round, even someone who was not initially entered in the competition.

the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat LOL. I had to restart after my Cairo fail, and I'm now on my fourth city but out clues for today. Its till fun, though having a team mate counting on you makes the fails sooooo painful. We may limp in last, but we'll be there. don't start the celebration party til we get there :D

In this contest, we root for everyone! It is what makes Noir so fantastic. I hugely applaud all those still out there in the trenches sifting through clues.

GO GET EM !!!

And my own partner, Ruby. You go girl! I am immensely proud of how much effort Ruby went to to acquire contacts before the contest. Ruby has the heart of a champion. :)

In the words of Phoebe Buffay:

You Guuuuys :)

Seriosuly you're all so sweet thank you for the kind words. Dogberta it's nice to know there are a few of us out there in the same boat and I totally agree it's hard knowing there's someone out there counting on you :)

And massive congratulations to those who have finished. Especially those who have come back to it after so much time away.

I am not sure about all who have restarted but I am sure Ms Helen is just getting in shape for child rearing woes. I think she will find Villain Hunts easier than potty training ;)

Way to go all for not giving up ;)

Congats to all of you that you were able to catch your Villain.
Respect to all of you that you were brave enough to restart a VH after a failure ! I totally agree with Eden ...your determination should be congratulated and awarded accordingly.
I would like to offer a special courage award to all detectives belonging in this category. All detectives that will be able to reach the final tournament line after a failure will get 75k as aspecial courage reward. This extra courage reward will be given on top of any other reward of the tournament.
Good luck to all of you !

While anyone is hunting in Shanghai, you're welcome to join CD&H and use the smart gear. I can bump Blue and Ruby from the agency during that time so there will be room for 10 detectives.

It will work on a first come, first served basis but I don't think that should create too many problems as people will be in different cities at different times.

Just send me a PM. :)

The offer isn't just for the tournament either. If you ever need a place to stay in Shanghai, the doors are open.

Arch Villain Nabbed!
The notorious criminal Count Laszlo Ackermann was brought to justice by Ms Helen after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

That was such fun! Now I need to do a few dozen more AV hunts in Cairo to figure out how it works.

Go, Jason!!
