Hey there, all you puzzle-lovers(Or money-lovers, whatever)! Look what's back!

During Moosewood's term, I regretted how little this event was done(We did one game, to be exact.) So, back at the beginning of Limedoils' term, I asked them if they wouldn't mind sponsoring a continuation. In response, they gave me a wonderful $1,000 grant with which to fund the prizes for the game. \:D/ Well, since then, I've been pretty busy, so I haven't had the chance to run it. Well, I'm happy to say that now that my latest book is nearly finished, and school is winding down, I will have a little extra time. So here it is, just barely starting during Limedoils' term, Solve the Clues, Type Them In, Solve the Puzzle, WIN THE MONEY!!! \:D/

For this special continuation, I've decided to revamp(anyone know what that even means? :p) the game, changing things up a bit. One of the largest concerns about this game is that the nature of it favors those who are online more often. Well, I've managed to think up a fix to that. For this edition, I will be holding sign-ups. Once the sign-up period has ended, you will all be put into a bracket(size depending on how many people we get). Then, I will host a series of matches where two individuals will face off. These will be held at an agreed-upon time which will be determined by the two players and myself. The winner of the bracket will take home a large prize, and there will also be small prizes for each individual match.

Yes, I realize this complicates things, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. It will also probably take longer, but I think it's worth it to have a better game.

Of course, if you all feel differently, we can switch back to the original format.

With that, sign-ups are now open! You may sign up any time between now and 12:00 PM PST May 31, 2014.

I definitely want to play, but I’m not sure about how the scheduled matches will work out.
I want to take on everyone anyway, not just one other person. :noway:

I'm not sure either, but I would like to give it a try if you're all game. :)
Well, if you keep on winning your matches, you will eventually take on everyone! \:D/

Hmm.... that wasn't my original thought, but it's a great idea! Thanks, bookworm! :p

It wasn’t? If each team had their own puzzle you’d have to come up with an awful lot of them. And it would be less fun because I want a chance to try all of them! If you’re doing it two at a time, there’s no reason not to reuse the same one until each groups goes through, then you can go to the next one.

Who am I? I'd rather not answer that question, the real question is, "Who are you?". Right now I am trying to think of something witty to put here.. I might not find anything, but that's fine. This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.
