I actually signed up and played that with a buddy and it was quite entertaining. I signed up back in June of 2001 with a friend and a month went by
without any word as to what was going on with the game. After you signed up and paid the $9.95 fee, the only thing it told you was that you would be
contacted soon. So, my friend and I thought we got scammed until I get a call on my cell phone (you give them pratically all the info for them to get
a hold of you - email addy, phone #, AIM SN, etc) at around 3:00 am on I believe it was a Thursday. It was an automated computer voice, but it still
sounded fairly decent, giving me instrustions to contact this name that can't remember and give him a secret code. They never said how to find this
person, whether on AIM or on the MJ brower, or anything. Anyways, thats how it all started and it was basically a scavenger hunt online. You had to
put clues together, talk to certain people (real and fake, other players and NPC) who gave you good info and disinfo, and figure out the puzzle. It
lasted about 2 1/2 weeks and was fairly easy, but a ton of fun. Has anyone else did this? If so, what was your experience like? I thought it was a
great idea, but a little pricey (even though I didn't do the second or third levels). The interaction with the fake players, real players and the NPC
was an awesome experience. Sure it had its problems, but overall, it could have become something revolutionary in the online gaming experience.
If anyone did do this, what was your AIM name for the game? Mine was majesticmulder (how orignal!).
