People of Sleuthville, lend me your ears!
I call out now to all you tomb-raiders and treasure seekers! To those who love the thrill of a good treasure hunt!

In the spirit of friendly competition i propose a challenge.
This challenge will require 10 adventurous detectives to be split onto 2 Teams, each team consisting of 5 members, in 2 newly made Agencies of my own making in NY.

These two agencies will compete against each other in Treasure Hunts.
The first team to get their agency to 7,000 Fame wins:

$200,000 Prize to be split among the team evenly.
(Working out to $40,000 a piece for each teammate...not too shabby huh?)
Also each team after the contest ends will vote amongst themselves on who alone among their team was MVP (someone who went above and beyond, did a really excellent job, etc) The MVP's from Both teams will win a 3 month gift subscription from me personally.
You also win bragging rights and honor for your home agencies on being an awesome treasure hunter.
Whether your team chooses single or multi-city hunt strategy is entirely up to you.

Obviously this competition will run for a while, (I'm venturing a guess at anywhere between 2 weeks to a month depending on how luck smiles on you or how good you and your teammates are).

It goes without saying that you would be required to resign temporarily from whatever agency you are currently in to join my competing agencies for the contest. You are allowed to enter an alternate detective if you wish if you're too attached to have your main detective leave your agency, and the only rules are:

1) Absolutely NO Password Sharing.
2) Only one entry per contestant
3) Have fun.

I want to know who among you treasure hunters really has what it takes to come together and co-ordinate as a team to truly be the best.

(Cont'd)

Also guys official update, i am now making the contest set at first agency to 15,000 fame from treasure hunts wins. If everyone agrees with this number i can quit asking for everyone's opinions and actually start making this happen. We all good on this? And to clarify i dont really care if your team gets a little boost from doing AI cases, that's all part of the strategy i want you all to chose, Should you do easy cases to get favors quickly to move through a hunt not gaining fame, or should you take a little extra time doing AI cases but having it pay off with a little extra fame boost for the effort? Obviously i want you guys THing like madmen but im not going to get picky about a little extra fame boost from cases.......am i making sense? My point is it can be very Tortoise vs Hare strategy, which will you choose?

Jason,

What a brilliant and novel idea. If I were younger like Summer's niece, I would also say something about nipples.

I think you are going about trying to set an arbitrary limit the wrong way. I am posting the history of Queen's Gambit as an example in the following post...

Gambit was a hard-hitting startup agency in those years. We had exemplary sleuths in a Sleuth world that was rather lean. Notice that it took a month to reach 10,000 xp.

That 10,000 xp benchmark was achieved by going hard after TH's and by everyone mostly doing AI cases. We also had some real power hitters at that time.

My suggestion is this. Why don't you set a time limit--maybe 2 weeks. Then award the winner to whoever is ahead at that time limit.

With today's battleground of many more active agencies, this contest could be a rough one trying to achieve an arbitrary xp goal.
