We are proud to announce Mystery Monday, and its accompanying contest! Mystery Monday is all about the story behind The Ball. Where does this adventure take place? When did it take place? Who is the player?
What happened to him after he discovered this mysterious hidden world? How did the world react to his discovery? Is history as we know it truly what happened, or is there more to it? Who really built the pyramids of Giza? How come the Maya had such an accurate calendar? And how does the Ball tie into all of this? We will be revealing a tiny piece of the puzzle every Monday from today all the way to the release of the game!

Tied into Mystery Monday is a contest. In every piece of the puzzle a word has been hidden. Be the first to find all the hidden words to win! We are giving away an Ipad, and copies of The Ball, Killing Floor, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, and Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad (when it is released)!


http://www.theballthegame.com/?page_id=453 The first piece of the puzzle is a scan of a local newspaper.




The rules and more information can be found here

Yeah, but I figured out the first one is quite easy if you read carefully.
€ To be honest, the article offers multiple entries.

All the words we are looking for have something to do with the game or with the theme of the game. We would never be looking for "clown" for example, because it has absolutely nothing to do with the game or the theme.

if there is a typo somewhere it is not deliberate. We are not that sneaky:)

Rough guess, are you looking for the word "Ball". :p:D

Given your set of questions, I suppose we can't answer right now, right. Well not the final word(s) should there be such a case, just the first few questions?

The second piece of our Mystery Monday puzzle. A little more difficult than the first one! Remember we are looking for a single word or name. Something that is related to the story or the theme of the game.

Well thanks to the paperstory and letters, I already know how it could end (didn't play the mod, but regularly followed its course). Nicely written as well.
