I've come across a game something like it but it was one that had been made up by a japanese gentleman I think. This looks like it could be a difficult one to crack. I have waited for the safe lock to go around the clock and it then opens up for what I assume is the start of the game. There seems to be a "Help" section... which might get it started.
You may be right, but I havn't provided any personal information, not even a name. Also , as I said before, the email is a specifically created throwaway. I started this thread just to see if anyone else had heard of it. Besides, I like puzzling things out. I don't for one minute think I have a chance of winning anything, its (now) merely a diversion that I may get bored with in 10 minutes, or I might pursue it for a few days. I really can't tell.
