…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.

90% at the moment myself, just need two more answers... damn that question 15 :p.

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)

Hey Riza, I've just sent you my attempt at the quiz. One question stumped me completely! The others - well I'm sure they can't all be correct. But it was fun trying to get all the answers. Just felt it was time for me to call a halt to my searching and hope for the best. Thanks for taking the time to put together such an interesting mix of questions :)

Just a reminder for the people: Today is your last day to submit entries for the trivia. Tomorrow, a winner shall be announced (according to Riza's first message, suffice it still counts).

So detectives, once more, good luck!

I know how hard you all worked to hunt down those answers. To everyone who submitted an entry or attempted to answer the questions, be proud of your efforts. Whether to you this quiz was a refresher, a mental challenge, a time-filler, or a chance for cash, I hope you all had fun.

And now you moment you’ve all been waiting for: the results!

There were several tricky questions in here, and nobody managed to get all of the questions correct. But one person did get very close.

The first place winner of Sleuth Trivia is... *drumroll*

Ms Helen!

Congratulations on your amazing research skills and vast knowledge of all things Sleuth-related. You had the highest score of all the entrants by a landslide. I will send you your $500,000 prize shortly.

The second place winner of Sleuth Trivia is… *drumroll*

Andrew Corelli!

Congratulations to you as well! I can tell you worked really hard trawling those boards. (I think you were the only one to get questions 9A and 9B correct, haha.) I will send you your $250,000 prize shortly.

An honorable mention goes out to rugby101, a relative newbie who attempted and correctly answered quite a few questions. Rugby, for your dedication and hard work, I will be sending you a small prize as well.

I hope this little trivia game allowed you all to learn more about the various aspects of Noir and provided you with a bit of brain-challenging fun. Thanks to all for playing. :)
