    First Post!

    Wow, that is completely daunting. So many puzzles. . .

    How big are the teams typically? I’m trying to get a sense of how big Mystery Hunt it. From Matt’s pics I can tell it’s popular (and why wouldn’t it be?) but how big are the groups?

    Thanks!

    My favorite puzzle, I think, from this year was Embezzler’s Quest (in How to Succeed at Finance by Being Really Really Evil). Working on that puzzle, especially since it was 4 AM, was so hilarious.

    My favorite had to be War Dance, because watching her dance cracked me up =P Not to mention, it was the only puzzle I made major contributions to. The puzzles are harrd!

    Mike, thanks for the photos. They were fun to look at. Probably it was not so much fun for the people solving puzzles. smile Maybe the opposite… I don’t know yet.

    As one of the people solving puzzles in one of those pictures, I’d have to say that it was definitely SO MUCH FUN smile

    Exactly my thoughts, Solomon.
    Fanderful, too!

    Thanks Bryan! *Bookmarks this page.* Semester finals, this week, for me. After those, I’ll be able to concentrate a lot more on things like this! Can’t wait.

    I think it was a mixture of frustration and fun; it’s frustrating while you’re trying to figure the darn thing out, then you get really excited once you finally get it. But overall: So. Much. Fun! =P
