Greetings, people of Sleuthville! The time has come once again for the annual Sleuthville Arch-Villain Hunt Tournament. This year, in an attempt to change things up a bit, I’m happy to announce the return of the one-on-one matchups! Oldies and newcomers alike are welcome to participate. What better way to stave off boredom than a little friendly competition?

The format will be 16 detectives, each randomly paired off by a magic baseball hat to face one other person. For this competition, players going through Cairo will have a day taken off their totals. The fastest player(s) from each round will go on to the next round until a winner is determined. In the case of a tie (same day capture), both players will move on to compete in a triple threat matchup. 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 last one standing wins.

The rules:
- Either PM me or post here 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.
- You may not PM me to ask for any AVH hunt help or advice.
- 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.

You may:
-travel to Shangri La the night before, but NOT start the hunt
-use a travel kit
-use head of faction privileges
-use agencies and apartments to swap gear

You may not (enforced only by the honor code):
-use sidekick cases (for either clues or travel)
-agency jump (the agency you’re in when you post is the one you stay in)
-enter second/third detectives, etc.

I reserve the right to disqualify any player from this competition at any time for breaking any of the rules or for behaving inappropriately. All final decisions rest with me.

Anyone who would like to join, please POST here. Participants will be gathered on a first-come, first-served basis. The first matches will start on **Monday, June 2, 2014** at 0:00 Sleuth Server Time (SST). Each following round of the competition will start on the next Monday at 0:00 SST, unless one of the matches takes longer than expected. In that case, things will be adjusted accordingly and you will be updated as soon as possible. All further announcements will be made by “The Announcer”. Please check this thread regularly.

And now, on to the prizes! The winner will receive the grand prize of $250,000 Sleuth Dollars, a custom item prize, and bragging rights for the next year. Hooray!

(This hunt will go forward only if there are enough players participating [16]. If not, the tournament will be cancelled altogether.)

Updates/announcements on the pairings and results of each round will be posted here. Also, feel free to PM me with any questions/concerns. I hope to see you all at the starting line. And remember, the most important thing is to have fun! :D

I don't know why though. I HATE AVH. Got retired on one and always fail them because I don't know left from right... east to west...
