Hello and welcome to the RBM-Ink Puzzle Cup! Enjoy yourself with brain games and aim to the prizes!
Here we’ll have a different puzzle each month featuring the Homeheroes universe. Contestants shall not only try and solve the puzzle, but also send the answer as soon as possible to earn the most points. The sooner you send it, the more points you earn. At the end of the Cup, the contestants with most points will earn prizes.
Hop in, have fun and good luck!
July 2nd to November 30, 2015
The puzzle will be posted at 12 PM of every first day of each month, so you’ll have basically a whole month to submit your answer. Whenever a puzzle expires results will be posted. This board will be updated at the beginning of each month with the current standings. At the end of the year, the final results will be announced and the top five contestants will be rewarded (see ‘Prizes’ below).
Anyone can take part. No kind of registration required. Just come and send the answer via note.
Answers have to be sent only by Note. Any other form of posting won’t be considered. Please help by specifying your message as a Puzzle Cup answer on its title.
Answers can be sent until the deadline specified on the puzzle guide - usually the last day of the month. After that date answers won’t worth any points.
Answer like the How to Answer guideline indicates in order not to cause any confusion at the interpretation of your answer (see ‘Puzzle Format’ below).
Each contestant can send just one answer.
Some puzzles might have an extensive answer, that might vary in number of correct info (e.g. ‘Crosswords’). In such case, the correctness of an answer will have more consideration than the time of arrival in order to get points (see ‘Puzzle Format’ below).
Title: It’ll be composed by the initials ‘RBMIPC’, followed by year and month.
Art: A fun illustration of the puzzle just like your usual deviations. In a few cases it might contain graphical feature related to the enigma, if mentioned in ‘How to Answer’, otherwise is purely an addition and it won’t reflect the answer in any ways.
Enunciation: Here’s where the puzzle is presented, as simplified as possible to avoid misunderstandings. Read it carefully! And feel free to point any typos.
How To Answer: A quick guideline telling how the answer must be submitted, so there won’t be no misunderstandings. It also explains how to make your answer more valuable, as a form of "bonus".
Tip: A little help that might come in handy.
Deadline: The last day that the answer can be submitted for points.
Results: The winners of such puzzle. Will be posted after the puzzle deadline.
Due to difference between time zones, the default time zone will be the organizer’s home time zone: UTC-3 ( a.k.a. “Rio” a.k.a. “Brasilia, Buenos Aires, Georgetown”). Check the time zone of your location to make the proper calculations. Remember to consider any possible daylight saving time periods.
The criteria for judging the top answers are, in order of importance:
Correctness: A wrong answer has no value. In case of multiple details in an answer, the more correct details the more worthy an answer is. Detailed correct answers will be used as tiebreaking criterion over basic ones in order to define the final rankings at the end of the year.
Arrival: In order to keep things even to every time zone, the rule of arrival doesn’t apply for answers submitted in the next 24 hours after the puzzle submission (12 PM of the following day). Past that gap the earlier a correct answer arrives, the more worthy it is. However, an early answer with less correct details won’t be as valuable as a late answer with more correct details.

As the organizer of this activity, I hereby give my word that I will be impartial. I won’t favor or prejudice none of the contestants in any possible way. Every answer and their submit time will be kept and unrevealed by me. However, if you don’t trust me, feel free not to take part on it.
