, so that's what will close out the 2012 Priceless Summer. Let's go over the rules of the game.
The object is to identify people, places, and things from a series of 10 clues that start out arcane and vague, but get easier as the puzzle progresses. For this quickie version, any person present on the forum may play; however, each person is allowed only one guess per puzzle.
I will start off each puzzle by giving the category and the first clue. I will add new clues to the puzzle twice a day--one in the morning and one in the late afternoon/early evening. No clues will be posted on Sundays unless somebody solves a puzzle before Sunday night bedtime. If you think you know the subject of the puzzle, buzz in and post your answer in this thread. (No PMs, please. Only guesses in this thread will be accepted.)
If you are correct, you score an amount based on which number clue was the last to be revealed. Each puzzle starts at $10,000 in fake cash and decreases $1,000 every time a new clue is given.
If, however, you buzz in and give an incorrect answer, you are out for the rest of that puzzle.
Once the correct answer is given, the remaining clues are revealed and a new puzzle is played, if time allows.
Good luck to all, and have fun!
The subject of our very first puzzle is a PERSON. And away we go!
*DD clue reveal*
$10,000: He was an amateur boxer who competed in the 1988 Junior Olympics in Calgary.
The next clue will be posted on Monday morning--unless somebody is smart enough or lucky enough to get it on one clue.
