You find yourself in an even darker, deeper part of the Labyrinth. This time we all know why: a lethal cocktail of masochistic tendency and idle curiosity.

But getting in was the easy bit - getting out again before an even hungrier Minotaur catches you is a completely different story...

...and the only way you'll do it is using your wits and logic, ever fearful that - once again - even a correct answer can send you off in completely the wrong direction!

Will you escape?

I puzzled at sites where the contests were fun
Then I heard them say Labyrinth II had begun ...... (it hasn't yet!)
So I came down from Earth and I puzzled in Hell
But where I was going I really couldn't tell

Solve, solve, wherever you may be
The Minotaur is coming and he's hungry
And he'll find you all, wherever you may be
And I'll eat you all for my dinner, says He!


I met some other players who also couldn't see
But their answer differed so they didn't follow me
I puzzled for my freedom though my mind had gone
I had lost track of time but I still went on!

Solve, solve, wherever you may be
The Minotaur is coming and he's hungry
And he'll find you all, wherever you may be
And I'll eat you all for my dinner, says He!


A puzzler was stuck and wouldn't play the game
He tried to brute it really was a shame
But a Guess Counter caught him and hung him high
And left him there in the pits to die!

Solve, solve, wherever you may be
The Minotaur is coming and he's hungry
And he'll find you all, wherever you may be
And I'll eat you all for my dinner, says He!


It started on a Friday when the sky turned black
It's hard to puzzle with the Mino on your back
I turned a corner and I thought he'd gone
But five gets you ten that my answer was wrong!

Solve, solve, wherever you may be
The Minotaur is coming and he's hungry
And he'll find you all, wherever you may be
And I'll eat you all for my dinner, says He!


An exit found whose lock I did try
It didn't work and I'm going to cry!
That evil Minotaur has hidden the key
You'll remain forever in my Labyrinth, says He!

So, how were we supposed to get that out of the poem? (Doesn't look good for my chances of escaping that Minotaur, does it?...) I've been eagerly checking Puzzefiles every night since I saw the announcement, just in case you were going to not reveal it until post-launch Embarassed

Eagerly looking forward to it Thumbs up Very Happy

You weren't really...
... the poem is riddled [pun] with things which are only of use in hindsight. Evil or Very Mad


That said, quite a few people did seem to find it after my "I bet you can..." comment!

Is it possible to go "back in" if you haven't been in before? Its rather like Alice not being able to have more tea in her Adventures.FC

Part of me feared that this meant a 1 August start. (That would mean a really long game of Trivia Survivor.)
