**Please note that the Eleventh Hour Competition is OVER!**

On Saturday, March 6th, 11am PST, this hold was unleashed upon the forum. Players synchronized their clocks and downloaded the "Contest Hold." The race was on to see who could complete the 10 puzzles and post the secret word, "Mayhem," on the board. After posting the secret word, the player had to upload all 10 of his victory demos within 15 minutes to officialy dubbed the winner.

Congratulations, Kevin, on your Legendary victory!

The Contest Hold is now available to download, unedited, for posterity. Enjoy.

Where can I find some hints on these rooms, and were the demos ever made available?

Help!

Thanks,
Jim

Just to be nosey? How many entries did you get for this contest?

It sounded great but I had to work. I hope you do it again sometime. You could try a different season and days of the week so those of us who were not able to try it could try it. I thought it was a very well thought out contest and congrats to the winner.

...what? OK, so I was a little late. But I finally got around to playing this hold, and what better way to proclaim my victory?

Fun little hold. A few tough puzzles (1E and 1S1E gave me the most difficulty), but overall nothing too challenging and a good AE-style hold.

I give it a 7 for fun and 5 brains of difficulty.

Josh

I remember years ago trying to play this and being not able to clear the first room, then didn't have more time to play drod for so long, so couldn't know how was the rest of the hold.

Anyway now I've played it. I expected it to be harder being a contest, but still had fun. Favourite rooms: 1E, 2S.

Never seen this hold - it's good you mention it.

The hold is excellent - even after almost 10 years :)

My first impression (Entrance) was "hm, a bit hard for me".

My comments so far:

1N1E: I don't like those arrow mazes. The first part is good.

1E: excellent

Entrance: As I said - not exactly easy :)

1W: Very funny - lots of red herrings.

1S1E: No idea :(

Thanks for posting

Yes I'm writing short comments on holds I've conquered recently mostly to bring up again the discussion, so if someone didn't know he could play them too. :)

I suppose you've played Claythro Tower, it's a very good hold by the same architect.
