Launch Date:
Friday 24th March 2006
at
9:00pm (GMT)

You find yourself in the deepest, darkest corner of the labyrinth. You know there must have been a good reason to have entered in the first place, but have no recollection as to what that was. All that is on your mind right now is escaping from it before the Minotaur catches you...

...and the only way to do that is using your wits and logic, but beware - the wrong answer could send you off in completely the wrong direction!

Will you ever escape ?

It's official... "Labyrinth" will launch at 9pm (GMT) on Friday 24th March 2006.

Hopefully, this will go off without a hitch but, as this was my first attempt at all this web-site stuff, don't be too surprised if the unexpected happens!

* crosses everything *

Very Happy

For those of you unfamiliar with this type of site setup, here's a few pointers for when the contest goes live...

Contests
Following this link (from the welcome page, which is accessible by clicking on the logo top-left) will show a list of active contests. Select "Labyrinth" to display the information page - which I am sure you will read - then select "start" (or "continue") to see the first puzzle.

Three options should then activate on the menu:

Labyrinth
Following this link will take you to the current puzzle (it remembers where you got to so, if you do manage to drag yourself away for any reason, picking up where you left off is easy).

Progress
Following this link will display a list of the puzzles you have solved, together with date/time, answer given, and number of guesses. You can also click on the puzzle title to revisit that puzzle.

Statistics/Podium (hall of fame)
Following this link will normally show you the stats/leaderboard. However, for Labyrinth, this has been disabled so you will be taken directly to the Hall of Fame.

Stop Press:

Over the past 18 months, we have received numerous enquiries as to the content of the 'void' within the heart of the Labyrinth.

Despite endlessly reassuring people that it contains nothing, the questions persist. We have therefore decided, after much deliberation, that the only way to put an end to this once and for all is to open the area up for public inspection.

I will be able to provide the precise date and time this will happen as soon as access to the area has been secured.
