  jessicafischerqueen: How does "like the ninth" relate to this game?
Dec-21-09  felixd: Seriously that was impossible.

  jessicafischerqueen: Not for <Alexander the Great>, who solved it and won a Porsche Carerra.

I think <AlexMagnus> has made quite a remarkable achievement here, considering that he died in Babylon in the 3d century BCE.

Dec-22-09  TheaN: After I read the anagram 'like the ninth' it seemed so obvious it had something to do with it... never through of the 'similar game' option though. Nice find.

Hehe. You know, back then I tried to conquer the world and failed. Now I'm back trying to "conquer" world's most enigmatic puzzles ;)
