On February 1, 2013, Microsoft Research India will launch the Whodunit? Challenge: a nationwide social gaming competition that awards 1 Lakh Rupees to the winner.
The goal of the contest? To use your mobile phone to crack a fictional mystery case! The winner must discover five clues -- Who, What, Where, When and Why -- surrounding a mysterious event. To receive a clue, simply give a missed call to the contest phone number, 02653090663.
Sound too easy? There's a catch! Some clues are harder to find than others, and only one clue will be sent to a given phone number. Thus, to win the contest, you will have to work as a team. The more people on your team, the better your chances of gathering all five clues!
The first person to solve the case -- by reporting all five clues -- will be declared the winner. To report and verify a clue, send it via SMS to 09243316009. So, get working on building your teams now. May the best detectives win!
