The winner of Sleuth Trivia (Part 4) is… *drumroll*… Sultry de Mon! Congratulations, Sultry! You had the most correct entry of all the contestants, and a near-perfect score.

At a close second was Bela Talbot III--excellent work! In general, I was very impressed by all the contestants' research and stalking skills. All non-winning participants will receive [5] GPP.

There were 6 entries received in total, 5 of which were at least 75% complete. Therefore, Sultry’s prize amount is $50,000x5= $250,000. Miss Hawkeye will wire you the prize money shortly. In addition, Sultry will receive [10] GPP.

Thank you all for playing, and I hope you had fun digging and searching for the answers. The questions for Sleuth Trivia (Part 5) are currently being compiled, so please look forward to that in the coming months. :)


Bonus: The most amusing answers received. :D

1f. How many fish are in the tank at the arcade?
I see 16 fish shapes but my eyes hurt so much from staring at the monitor - I'm not sure what is fish and what is rock :)

2a. What are the full names of the two people who offer you tickets?
Maggie and Joe :")

4. Shameless Drunks
b. Very British Bar
c. Oriental Express Bar
d. Delhi Bar
e. Victorious Bar
f. The Ship Bar

6c. Approximately how much does Big Lucy weigh?
A1: You don't ask a lady how much she weighs.
A2: no one knows - she's just big boned - and if you'd find out they'd give you nice set of concrete shoes :)
