Mystery Hunt 2013 Welcome Thread!
Hey everyone, so I heard we can register an all-remote team for the first time this year, which means we get to participate without any worrying about an on-campus contingent or anything like that. So, let's do this thing!
Post here if you might be interested in helping out our team for the 2013 Mystery Hunt! It will run 18-21 January 2013 (the weekend before MLK Jr. Day, for those of you in the U.S.). It's easy to play: Just join this forum, and stop by anytime during the Hunt. We'll add you to our members list and tell you how to log into our account on the puzzle server of the Hunt organizers. No obligations necessary, all time zones welcome!
And say a little bit about yourself if you'd like.
I've been a Mystery Hunter since 2007, and been captaining this team since 2008. We're just an informal group of solvers who just enjoy having fun solving puzzles. As for myself, I'm a graduate student, and I know assorted classical music, music theory, videogame, anime, and electoral politics trivia (though not necessarily consistently), and I suck at solving puzzles, even if I'm intrigued by their design and have written a few MH-style puzzles myself.
