Are you following the #ReopenTheXFiles Puzzle Contest? 

We know that MANY of you are trying to figure out the amazing composition designed by PL Boucher.

A number of dedicated X-Philes have approached us wondering how to deliver the entries for this contest, and how will we pick a winner. First, we should refresh the concept of the contest and deliver some clues for better understanding.



XFN has been posting daily pieces on all of our social media pages under the hashtag #ReopenTheXFiles. They're identified by No. of piece and Day published. If you missed one, you can look up the hashtag in Twitter, Facebook, instagram or Tumblr and catch up. Also, there are 100 pieces, the last one will be relesed on January 24th, 2016!

And here's a clue: the board is 10 x 10, that means that it has 10 rows and 10 columns. That should help you guys out a little, right?

So here's what we think will make your life easier and prevent from breaking your printers at home and killing trees:

To deliver your results:

Method #1:
You can send us a list with the correct order of the tiles. For example:

Slot #1: Piece 47/Day X
Slot #2: Piece 82/Day X

Method #2:
You can create a table of 10 rows and 10 columns, and fill in the blanks the Piece number you think belongs in that slot. You can add the day of release of the piece for further reference.

Method #3:
For those of you visual folks with photoshop or any other image editing program, you can create a document and arrange the pieces together, preferrably with the anotated piece numbers and export a JPG that you can send to us.

You will have until 11:59PM on January 24th, 2016 to send in your results to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Only ONE Grand Prize winner will be chosen; our team has designated three examiners to determine the first contestant to deliver the correct order of the pieces. 

If you have any more questions about the delivery, please contact us via email or social media. We can't wait to meet the winner!
