Well! A lot has happened since I wrote you last. The biggest thing is that my team, Palindrome, won the MIT Mystery Hunt. The correct response to this is: congrats/condolences! The top prize is a gorgeous, engraved coin… and the responsibility to write next year’s hunt. It will be difficult to top this year, which was a beautiful construction (inside of a fully-functioning virtual world) by the fine folx of ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ Galactic Trendsetters ✈️ ✈️ ✈️. If you’d like to take a deep, deep dive into the hunt, along with some links to specific puzzles, I strongly recommend this very long article by GT member CJ Q.
