What is the BETA puzzle?

·         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.

·         Trailhead:

·         This is the BETA version as described by ABC_Keith. PM’s are still working out the bugs.

How do I get started on the puzzle?

The trailhead to the puzzle is located at: 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.

What do the redirects mean?

Also, I briefly read the season 2 FAQ and would like to clarify a few small things.  

The old main web pages from the season 1 site are still up.  

The ejeffy sites are clones of the original sites. 

What they basically did was alter the name servers to point to a different location, 

Rackspace using Tucows registration tools I believe.  I am able to get the old 

sites via IP. This means stuff like the Artifact picture is still up and the message 

board still tries to contact Alisha with the submit button, but Alisha has been 

taken down.

ABC Official Site
  • On 12/2/02 it was noticed that in Sydney Bristow's profile on the ABC website a change was made to her birthdate.  In Season 1 it was listed as 4/17/74 (note the 47 reference) and this season it now reads 4/17/75.  Whether this change was made to better fit the Project Christmas timeline it is not known.

What is the purpose of the Alias Web Puzzle ?

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.
