The Mission:

A mole has been discovered in the Sector 9 team. Sector 9 is reponsible for international intelligence and security. Our most decorated Sector 9 agent, Agent X-12, uncovered the identity and location of the mole. Unfortunately, X-12 was eliminated by the enemy before he could take the suspect into custody.

Agent X-12 compiled an initial list of 256 people he believed could be the mole. Your job: retrace X-12's steps and discover who the mole is. You are to provide the specified contact with the identity and location of the mole.

The mission will be dangerous. The enemy will stop at nothing to protect their own. Watch your back. Trust no one.


The Rules:

THERE ARE NO RULES IN THE SPY GAME!

About once a week, Central Intelligence will provide a clue to all agents that will eliminate suspects from X-12's list. Throughout the mission, individual agents will receive intelligence from their handlers, other agents and contacts. Some of it will be helpful, some not so helpful. Some agents may even lose their lives--game over!


FAQ's (please read):

Can I team up with other agents in the contest?
Sure! But their will be only one winner.

Can I hack/cheat/lie/swindle my way around?
You bet. Do whatever it takes to win! HOWEVER, we do not suggest or recommend anything considered illegal under U.S. and international laws.

Can I post information to help other people out?
Do whatever you want. I'm not sure how this would help you though, unless you were trying to pull--

What happens if I am killed off?
Game over. You are out of the contest.

Who decides who gets killed?
Who and when somebody is removed from the game is processed randomly each day. Could be one agent, could be two, could be none.

How do I win?
You first need to come up with the identity and location of the mole. Sometime during the mission, you will be given instructions on how to do this and to whom this information will be passed. The first agent to complete the mission before the deadline will be declared the winner!

How many chances to I get?
YOU GET ONE CHANCE TO GET IT RIGHT. There are three pieces to the puzzle. The identity of the mole, the location of the mole, and the person you are to contact with the information. You must have all three right to win. And you only get one chance at it. Get it wrong, and you will be eliminated!

What do I win?
Two hundred and fifty dollars, U.S.

When does the mission end or when is the deadline?
The mission officially ends at midnight on Saturday, May 26th.

What happends if nobody wins?
Trust us, that won't happen. If somehow hell freezes over and pigs are flying about all over the place, I guess we'll have to do a drawing or something.

When do I start?
Now! Your handler will be contacting you shortly.

What if I have questions?
If you have questions concerning the contest itself, post it in the official thread and we'll reply.

Aren't you going to wish us good luck?
It takes a lot more more than luck to be a spy! But, alright... good luck anyway.

Yes, this is our "Hollywood" marketing campaign for our two films. Heck, the sutdios do this kind of stuff, I figured, why not us? Now if I can just get a banner on cans of Coke.

And this should DEFINITELY be a lot of fun! :happy:

If I offered up $250 and then said "April Fools!", I think that you'd see the end of me on these boards. This is NOT an April Fools joke. I guess I should have picked a different date to start.

YOU GET ONE CHANCE TO GET IT RIGHT. There are three pieces to the puzzle. The identity of the mole, the location of the mole, and the person you are to contact with the information. You must have all three right to win. And you only get one chance at it. Get it wrong, and you will be eliminated!

Does this rule mean that guessing wrong on any one of the clues? I'm asking because I submitted an answer to the first clue, got a response back that the information was wrong. I then saw the above post and I'm still listed in the agent list, but while reading the first post (looking for any clues) I came across this rule.

So, the real question is...am I still in, or am I out?

Yes, you're still in. The one chance rule is in regards to the final answer to win the contest, that is, when you make contact with the name and location of the mole. This will become clearer once everybody is further into the contest, preventing somebody from "stuffing the ballot box" as it were.

AmyO
04-05-2007, 07:15 PM
I'm almost embarrased to bring this up, but I'm having difficulty even making it past the sentry. Has your system been tested to work with Mac browsers? It's most likely that I'm totally clueless about how to get in, but I'd like to rule out browser issues.

Thanks for putting together this contest!

Charli
04-05-2007, 07:25 PM
I'm too right brained to get anywhere.

Larry Rutledge
04-05-2007, 07:50 PM
Amy - I'm not using a Mac, but I am relatively certain there isn't a problem. It doesn't seem to work until you enter the right code. For me it finally responded when I, presumably, entered the correct code and hit ENTER. I assume it was correct as I then gained access to another screen, but alas I'm stuck there at the moment so I can't be certain it was the correct code yet.

So all that to say it is most likely working for you, just need to enter the correct code.

AmyO
04-05-2007, 08:27 PM
Thanks, Larry. Like I said, I'm pretty sure it's just user error, but I've been left out of web based things before because I'm on a Mac, so I thought I'd check. I'll keep plugging away at it, though. :)

BryantStanton
04-05-2007, 09:58 PM
Wow. I feel dumb.

Seriously can't get past the sentry screen. I have a feeling the answer is right in front of me and I'm going to feel especially stupid when (and if) I get it figured out.

Larry Rutledge
04-05-2007, 11:08 PM
If what I put in that got me onto another screen is right, then yes it is right in front of you.

Amy - as long as you have a functioning flash player you should be fine. If you see the numbers and entry field you're good...just have to figure what to put in.

Peace,
Larry

This is driving me crazy.

I'm assuming the beeps mean something along the lines of "Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, Wrong (ad infintium)"

EDIT:

Thank god. I'm smack dab in the middle of more confusion, but I was able to make it past the first part! Wooo!


EDIT AGAIN:
Aha! This is quite fun/interesting when it gets rolling!

Charli
04-06-2007, 10:21 AM
I've gotten so many numbers and different words, but no access. I sort of understand where it's all coming from, I'm just not a good spy.

No, entries are not due until the end of May, you have lots of time, join in.

cinealma
04-06-2007, 11:47 AM
Acutally, the contest has all ready started and no new agents are being accepted. The deadline was April 1st. HOWEVER, a little bird told me that new recruits might be able to join on at a later date, BUT they would be handicapped by having to start at the beginning and therefore be behind as far as time is concerned.

JOE BLO
04-06-2007, 01:16 PM
I can't break the code to enter the sentery system. I'm mac based, but apparently that isn't the reason I can't get on. I'll keep at it. A spy never says quit...or is that a marine?

IT IS WITH REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT ONE OF OUR OWN, AGENT DOUBLE DEE, DIED IN A HIGHWAY ACCIDENT IN UPSTATE NEW YORK TODAY. SHE WAS DRIVING HER TRUCK WHEN SHE COLLIDED HEAD ON WITH A LIMOUSINE WHEN THE LARGE CAR SWERVED INTO HER LANE, TRAVELLING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. NO REMAINS OF THE LIMOUSINE DRIVER HAVE BEEN FOUND. AT LEAST ONE PASSENGER IS BELIEVED TO HAVE FLED THE SCENE ON FOOT.

Do you want to know the how to get into the "system"?

You'll have to do something for me first. A friend of mine is going to arrive in Paris from London on the Eurostar rail this Friday. He leaves in the morning and gets into Paris about 2:00 in the afternoon. I need the train number.

PM me the train number and I'll tell you how to get into the system.

IT IS WITH A HEAVY HEART THAT I INFORM YOU THAT WE LOST FOUR OF OUR BEST AGENTS THIS PAST WEEKEND. AGENTS 000, BALONEY, JOSE CUERVO, AND YOUNGBLOOD WERE ALL KILLED WHEN A BOMB EXPLODED ON A TRAIN IN THE NEW YORK METROPOLITAN AREA. WE HAVE FEW LEADS BUT A RELIABLE SOURCE TELLS US THAT IT WAS MOST LIKELY THE WORK OF M.O.G.U.L. AND COORDINATED BY SOMEBODY ON THE INSIDE. KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS OPEN!

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

The contest is dead. Getting feedback from people, it seems that a lot of people were out making films instead of trying to win this little contest. And my hats of to them! As the Spy Fest deadline got closer and closer, the less people stayed involved in this thing and honestly didn't have the time to work at it. This contest was not going to be an easy one, but it was all very logical and straightforward (although some may argue that on the initial challenges).

So, at this time, I have to announce, yep, you guessed it, NO WINNER. I vowed that I would have a winner, though. So...

Once Spy Fest officially begins screening, there will be a drawing to determine the winner. BUT, there will be a single task that has to be completed in order to qualify for the drawing.

I will announce the rules when Spy Fest begins.


Thanks,

John G.
