Question about rule
« on: July 16, 2006, 01:38:17 PM »
I don't understand the "You must be logged in to play rule", I thought that the hunt could include searching google for example, how will that be tracked? I can't open a new IExplore?

Thanks.

I don't even get what the Hunt is. Can someone explain? I've tried reading through the boards.. they just make no sense to me.  :-\

If you go to the SWLS Main page, on the sidebar there is a link to the HUNT.  Each Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time, Sledge posts a new HUNT.  This week will be HUNT 2-5.  It is a sort of riddle.  You have to figure out what clues there are and come up with the answer.  There is only one answer.  Then you submit it and can only answer once.  You have a week to complete the HUNT, unless 14 people solve it, and then it is over.  You can also see previous HUNTs from that HUNT link in the main page.  I think that reading over previous HUNTs is the best way to figure out what it's about.

Sledge does a better job at explaining what it is on his HUNT pages.  Here is a link:

Oh. Mk. :) Thanks. I don't really go much else on the site except for the forums. Forums are my favorite part of sitess.. more person-person interaction and a better return of info.

edit; Mk, well I looked and I think I will be lost. No pun intended. Maybe I'll start next year? :P

I think that you should start now.  You don't have to start at the beginning of the HUNT each year to get it.  In fact, it will probably be easier if you start now.

No, wait.  That would mean more competition.  Don't play.  Everyone, drop out!  Then I can win (assuming I could ever solve any of them)!

Hi Kromak & lostaholic...welcome to an addicting and really tough game! :)  I think Devilish & Card gave pretty good explanations about it... but I think the best way to know is just to try it out tomorrow night.  It's one of those things, you can kind of get a hang of what's needed by reading over old clues, but it's only really diabolically challenging when you play it first hand... and you guys have nothing to lose, right? :)  I think sledge tracks by IP.  Hey, I welcome new folks... no competition for me since I haven't made the leaderboard yet...lol.
