    DLester - I think there is plenty of time to catch up - we havent even got through all of the themed, plus there is the original hunt section which probably will come in towards the end. Don't give up!

    I am very impressed at the amount of detail and rich content that HH has brought to us here - very worthwhile!

Even though I don't stand a chance of winning this, it's still fun to try. Thanks for your reply and to HH for their wonderful explanation. Good luck to everyone

    The last thing we want is for players to get frustrated. There is definitely time to catch up - keep in mind that Themed Hunts do not close. We also provide advanced notice as to when a Sequential Hunt will close, which gives players the ability to budget their time accordingly. Also, the Bonus Hunt and Original Hunt will be released soon, and these can easily increase a players' ranking.

    A note of Thanks for all the positive feedback from everyone. We definitely wanted to provide a positive gaming experience that stimulates the mind.

    As always, suggestions are always welcome (we will adding the top 15 players very soon)!

    I have restrained myself long enough from starting anything new. I read that this hunt is designed to be done at my own pace. How far along is this hunt, should I jump onboard this late into the game?

    I just have one question: How are the placement positions calculated? What I mean is, do the players that reach the same amount of points AFTER another player, take the top spot? Because I noticed that Steve W was in 1st place, because he was among one of the first players to reach the top possible (without the new riddle hunt points) score, and at that time he had 2235 points, and the now first place spot, is Beth H, who at the time, had only 2205 points, but after solving the extra 30 point question, is now also at 2235 points, but yet, is in the 1st place position? Shouldn't Steve W still retain his 1st place status, and Beth H, be the 'Last' player with 2235 which currently would be 4th place? The reason I am asking is to find out how the scoring works, I mean, for example, if at the end of the game if the top player has 3000 points , and another player is at 2990 points, but has a 10 point question yet to answer, and they answer that 10 point question (At the buzzer) will that propel them to the top and into 1st place?

    I am not complaining in any way, I personally have had a great time playing this game, and I have learned a lot about history, and I can't wait to see what all this game has in store for us. I am just trying to understand the way things work. I apologize ahead of time if it seems like I am attacking anyone or this game, I assure you I am not

    Awwww...Hey Musicman...let me enjoy first place status for a little while, will ya?
    Genetic Blend (aka Beth H)

    We are still only at the beginning of the game. I am sure we won't have so many people tied for first place as the game plays on. And if there happens to be a tie at the end, I am sure there will be some kind of tie-breaker. But perhaps that is something that HH should think about now.

    Eric, You should give this one a try. It is fun....but knowing you, you will get caught up in reading everything. The history is addicting in some ways. Eventhough you would be joining late, there are a lot of questions posted now and you could rack up a lot of points. But I suggest you get started ASAP. Good Luck!

    Default What happens if there was a TIE???

    Greetings everyone.
    So, there's a 4 way tie now. Could this happen on the final stretch? It is very, very unlikely that it will NOT. The reason is that there are three games that are considered tie-breakers - The Original Hunt, Riddled Hunt, and the Bonus Question.

    The Original Hunt - for those that are not familiar with it - are questions that, when answered correctly, are no longer available to ANYONE. So, if you answer a 50 point question, you're the only one who will be awarded those points - no one else.

    The Riddled Hunt is a more difficult hunt with a high point value. Not everyone may be able to get it.

    The Bonus Question is a timed game with one question. Our last Bonus Question had a random point value, but we can see this has the potential to cause problems with some players. So, this time around, we're going with a time limit only.

    We're also playing around with the thought of having a Jeopardy-type question...no info yet, though.

    BUT, if there was a tie at the end, we will have tie breaker questions.

    On a side note, we've added 4th and 5th place winners (prizes have yet to be determined). It's our way of saying Thanks to all our players (and for being understanding about that 'glitch' in the beginning).

    Good Luck!

    Genetic Blend, I'm sorry, of course you should enjoy your first place status! I didn't mean anything by it honest, I just haven't played this game before and was just trying to find out more about it. Thank you so much HH for explaining it, you always do a great job about explaining things, and making this hunt very exciting and fun and very educational! Congratulations on your 1st place status Genetic Blend, I think as this game has progressed a lot of us has been in that spot briefly. HH, the "Jeopardy-type question sounds very intriguing! And thank you for adding 4th and 5th place winners, I hope that I have a chance at one of them. What worries me is when the Original hunts start, then I am in trouble! lol

    I just wish I could figure out that Riddle Hunt, that is a hard one! What about a hint for it?
