New Weekly Contest
Like many people, I have found myself with an abundance of time on my hands due to the pandemic and lockdown.  I have used this time to write puzzles for what I believe is going to be the longest-running contest I've ever had at HTPO.  My plan is start a new Weekly Contest, which will be posted in the forum every Monday evening at 8.00pm GMT starting on Monday 22nd June.  I have already written 8 weeks worth of puzzles which I believe gives me a good head-start on the rest of the contest - so while you're solving, I'll be writing more!  (I did consider running it on the main contest pages but not only would I not have been able to have a leaderboard as such, but the answer entry system would not allow for possible alternative answers and explanations.  My plan is for the puzzles to be set in 8-week rounds as follows:

Round 1: 22nd June - 10th August
Round 2: 17th August - 5th October
Round 3: 12th October - 30th November
then there will be a 4-week break for me to concentrate on the Christmas contest with the contest restarting:
Round 4: 4th January - 22nd February
Round 5: 1st March - 19th April
Round 5: 26th April - 14th June

So ... there you have it - a nice, new shiny Weekly Contest for you all.  I have incorporated some of the old favourites and also introduced some new types of puzzles.  These can be adapted as the weeks go on depending on which ones are popular or not.

See you there

Trivia Survivor - New forum game starting 9th October
Forums I'm pleased to announce that VoyagerKing will be running a new forum-based game at HTPO starting on Monday 9th October. It’s called Trivia Survivor.

The game will combine trivia and puzzles in a competitive format, that I hope you will find fun and amusing. It seems that a lot of games today run in such a way, that players are eliminated, and the winner is the last one left playing. Trivia Survivor will run that way.

There will be a wide range of question categories and types, to keep the game interesting, and hopefully, to offer a little of something for everyone. Some questions will be easy, while others will prove more difficult. Hopefully, they all will be fun!

For the full rules and game play description, please see post in the Announcement section of the forum here

Well that’s it! I hope to see you in a game of Trivia Survivor soon!

Weekly Forum Mini-Contest
Forums May I remind you all that the first of this year's weekly mini-contests will be launched in the forum tonight at 8.30pm (GMT). For those of you who haven't joined in before, please think about taking part. Twenty puzzles of varying types are posted in the forum and you are given a week to solve as many as you can and submit your answers to me by PM. It doesn't matter if you're not able to complete them all, just send in what you have. Although I do put up a leaderboard, it's really meant as a bit of fun rather than a serious contest. It's also an excellent way of gaining some practice for the bigger contests!

Forums Sorry for the temporary outage of the site and the forums. Seems my hosts had detected a security risk with the old forums i was using and although I had changed to a new forum it was just a few hours too late for their deadline. All fixed now.
