Lou Vega a thump to the brain

I won 10th place in the February 2007 Community-Credit contest.

10th Prize: Perplex City Card Game
Find the buried treasure and win $200,000 (real money!)
Hidden somewhere in the world is a buried treasure with a $200,000 reward. All you have to do to claim the bounty is solve a series of cryptic puzzles. Sounds simple? Well, it's not. Perplex City is an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) that blends real-life treasure hunting, interactive fiction, puzzle-solving, online communities, and live events in cities around the world. It's a sort of bizarre mix between Alice in Wonderland and The Matrix

OK so has anybody else played this before? Sounds kind of like that PC based game with a similar theme about 10-12 years ago. Go me! :)

I've actually received 3 prizes I've won from Community Credit - two were fairly quick after I won them and one was a little longer after I won I'm confident this one will arrive in due time also.

I'm sorry to hear yours hasn't arrived yet - but to put things in perspective, I first won a prize in September - that prize didn't arrive until later on in November. Congratulations by the way!

The puzzles are good if you want a bit of a mental workout - don't worry about the prize though, some lucky bugger found it a few weeks back:
