I will tell you whats odd:

"In just a few days Windows Vista and AMD will be announcing the winners"

Microsoft is the company!! OS is just Vista not windows anymore, i don't think :)

It is still called "Windows" and always WILL be called "Windows"

Windows Vista Business

Windows Vista Home Basic

Windows Vista Home Premium

Windows Vista Home Basic N

Windows Vista Business N

Windows Vista Starter

Windows Vista Ultimate

Great work everyone,

I have enjoyed this contest, it was a wonderful challenge (still upset at missing 1 whitebox in x-ray cards before submitting so not in the Meta challenge). Busy in the real world working this weekend (not in Seattle at the party) and opened the 4th box late. It was great to get feedback and listen to your thoughts. I'll be back here to work on other challenges. The people contributing here were for the most part very insightful (don't dissapear like LOKI). I think some needed more sleep than others at the end.

You guys are fast too, I had just finished the last waypoint and was working on getting to IVY (even though I wasn't officially able to answer) when the answer was post on this site somewhere. Wow!! No matter what happens, CONGRATS NEOWINIANS :bounce: .

i think as long as you were logged in and went to the lokiv directory it would have accepted a answer , i dont think the game was set up to restrict collaboration like that. which was cool even though i got all 36/36 and 48/48 , i probably still not even get a mousepad... lol

Here is a copy of my letter dated Wednesday, January 31, 2007 8:02 PM from LOKI <loki@vanishingpointgame.com>

Congratulations on a game well played, and thank you for helping us disappear.

You were not the first to guess our identity, but because you played our game,

we want to tell you our secret.

There is no such person as Loki - or rather, she is four sisters who decided to

be one extraordinary person.

Each of us has a unique talent:

Lorelei is our tinkerer. Clocks and counting, space and time: she is our


Odessa is our performer, our actress and magician, the girl we send in to dazzle

and charm. Odessa goes to meetings: Loki gets promoted. It's very convenient.

Kara is our reader. With a love of history and a photographic memory, she gives

us access to any fact, figure, or event at a moment's notice.

Ivy is our spy. She's the girl you dont notice, the face you don't remember,

and vanishing is what she does best. Ivy has gotten us out of more than one

impossible situation.

Together, we have presented L.O.K.I. to the world. Our mask and super-hero,

LOKI has allowed us each to be bigger than ourselves.

When we heard Microsoft and AMD were looking to give extraordinary prizes to

exceptional people, we knew LOKI could never find a more perfect job. This,

Odessa said, would be a trick we could never top. O, how we wanted this job!

(And what clever, unfair, underhanded things we did to the other applicants to

make sure we got it! But that's another story.) And once we got the job, we

all agreed that Loki's greatest triumph would be her last.

We created the Vanishing Point to reward the smartest minds (and communities) on

the planet - and still we underestimated you. We used our smarts and our guile,

not to mention money and connections and countless hours of time - and still you

humbled us. We knew the terrain and barely gave you a mapand that didn't stop

you. We built puzzles that should have taken you days and you solved them in


"Loki" is a genius: but you were far more brilliant. You were thought made

fire. You were lightning.

Thank you for your work, your talent, and your dedication. It has been a

privilege to witness: an honor and a delight.

For each of us to live, Loki had to die. Thank you, thank you beyond words for

taking her to the Vanishing Point.
