Dear citizens of Sleuthville, I’m back with more questions about Sleuth! For those of you who were around for either part 1 or part 2, these questions may not present much of a challenge for you since I have bled the game dry looking for questions. :)

Think you know everything there is to know about Sleuth Noir? Prove it. Anyone is eligible to participate. You do not need to sign up. This may provide some entertainment for those playing in the AVH Tournament who have some free time on their hands, or simply those looking for a little mental stimulation.

Format: 20 questions of varying difficulty and length, which will be posted below. 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 May 25. The name of the winner will be posted sometime on May 27, assuming that at least one qualifying entry has been received 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. The prize amount will be $50,000 Sleuth Dollars x the number of entries received. An entry will only be counted if at least 50% of the questions are attempted. Also, you will not know who else is participating unless they choose to reveal themselves below. *Should a contestant get all the answers correct, the prize amount will be increased by $100,000 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. Sharing answers is forbidden and will result in disqualification.

Corrections and Clarifications

For question 3b, I am essentially asking: Who was the first to find the peacock? Who was the first to find the fox? Who was the first to find the rabbit?

For questions 18b and 18c, that should be "Survivor Sleuthville" and NOT the "Sleuth Noir Hunger Games".

For question 18d, the post which created the thread will be considered the first post.

The winner of Sleuth Trivia (Part 3), with the most correct answers and an almost perfect score, is Bela Talbot III. Congratulations! :D

Since there were a whopping two entries, Bela's prize amount is $100,000. Miss Hawkeye will send the money within 24 hours. Additionally, she would like to offer Miss Talbot the opportunity to adopt a special friend, if desired. If not, the runner-up will be offered the opportunity.

Thanks for playing, and I hope you had fun digging and searching for the answers. The questions for Sleuth Trivia (Part 4) are currently being gathered, so that contest will take place this Fall. :)
