The BETA version of the puzzle was released (we
believe) to help PM’s see response and work the “bugs” out of the puzzle
before it goes live.
Joey’s Pizza and AliasWebPuzzle Yahoo! Group
received link from Zephyr_hex who received the puzzle info from the Mole 2 ABC
message boards (8/5/02). The link
was posted on the boards by ABC_Keith.
· This is the BETA version as described by ABC_Keith. PM’s are still working out the bugs.
The trailhead to the puzzle is located at: http://abc.abcnews.go.com/primetime/alias/adv.html through the official ABC site. From this site you are connected to the Agent Weiss-bot. Tell the bot you would like to join the CIA. After this, he will give you mission information to proceed with. For more information on the missions, visit the Trail section.
Also remember, the operations are spaced several weeks apart allowing all players to take their time and for everyone to investigate email addresses, in-game sites, and possible hidden items. There is no time limit on your operation completion, and the game is designed so new players can join at any time.
Other good information for the newcomer is available through the Season 1 FAQ, the Joey's Pizza yahoo group, and further reading this FAQ site. You may also wish to visit the in-game websites to start exploring. Enjoy!
On another note, newcomers can also download the camo & steg software so that they are ready when it is needed. Zep has provided an excellent guide/how-to here.
In season 1 some characters communicated with players via Instant Messaging. This occurred on Yahoo Messenger & AOL IM. A word of caution here, be careful who you contact & believe. Last season, there were numerous "agents" posing as in-game characters. If you are aware of verified in-game characters, you may go ahead and add them to your Buddy Lists to see if you can catch them online. Examples: on YAHOO- unityvice, rulerfrog; on AOL- Kdirectorate, SydK.

In Season 1, players were unsure of the purpose of the online game. However, in Season 2, from the ABC site description- we (the players) are working for the CIA to help bring down the SD cells, namely SD-6.
Also from the ABC site, there is no award or prize for the game, but satisfaction in it's completion. Last season, players developed skills in steganography, new software/shareware programs, various cipher codes, html/source code analyzing, and general internet knowledge.
To find more information on last season's puzzle, please read the introduction at this site. Other good sources include the FAQ on the ABC site, the Season 1 FAQ, and this short recap by AveryVincent.
