All pages redirect to now for the new version of the game.

This version of the Web Puzzle has been over since March of 2002.  This FAQ is mostly an archive and guide to what transpired over the months that the puzzle was active.  The primary web sites have all been removed.

I received this and thought other players would enjoy reading it.

rulerfrog (Sun 05/26/02 01:29:30 PM): Sorry for the lack of responses on my part... this account isn't very active anymore. I just wanted you to know that ALL of us at Alias are incredibly grateful for the hard work you've put into the puzzle FAQ, summaries, and the organization you've given to the webpuzzle. It truly wouldn't have been as successful without you -- I'm sure the players
would agree. Regards, Rulerfrog

The primary sources for information for this FAQ come from messages from the AliasWebPuzzle club, the Aliaswebgame group and Blake Kunisch's web site  Thank you to all who contributed.
