…And I’m back with more questions about Sleuth! For those of you who were around for part 1, these questions may be just as hard or even harder.

Think you know everything there is to know about Sleuth Noir? Prove it. 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 from now until 23:59 server time on August 8, 2012. Questions will be posted on August 9, 2012 at 10:00 server time. A little brain exercise is always fun, no? :)

Format: 20 questions of varying difficulty and length, which will be posted below should there be sufficient interest. You must attempt to find the correct answers to all questions, numbered in order. Multiple-part answers must be labeled with letters, and the answers must appear in the correct order to answer the question.

The last day for entry submission is August 16. The names of the winner(s) will be posted on August 17, 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. ;)

The most correct entry wins first place, and the second most correct entry will win second place. *Should someone should get all the answers correct, the first prize amount will be increased by $250,000 Sleuth Dollars.* Quickness of entry submission shall be used as a tiebreaker if needed. Only one entry per detective is allowed (the first entry), 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.

Prizes: First Place: $500,000 Sleuth Dollars (or more). Second Place: $250,000 Sleuth Dollars.

So far, I've managed to get like 85% of the questions, but there are still a few that I must go and research tomorrow. But I must say Riza, you've outdone yourself with this contest. Not participating myself, but I'm making them for fun and to see if I can get them all eventually. But it sure is hard to make sure everything you write down, is also correct...

Anyways, gl to the contestants and may the best man / woman win ^_^

I just have send my answers to Ms. Hawkeye, so I think that makes me the first. I'm not sure about two questions, the rest I'm pretty positive of! Again, good luck to the contestants and remember, I'm not part of the contest, I just did the questions for fun! (For Riza: It was fun to investigate Sleuth all over again, thanks for that)
