I’m skipping ahead a little bit here, but I need to open off with one quick comment- the “Sweet Murder” Murder Mystery Weekend is the most fun I’ve had in quite a while. And there’s no shortage of competition, given the number of puzzle contests, escape rooms, and other projects I’ve been involved in.
Puzzle Hunt is over. It took just over two days and one of the teams solved all puzzles necessary to declare a win. It was a very impressive experience, with a lot of pros and cons.
Quick update today, since it’s already 12:30 AM in Chicago. But the MIT Puzzle Hunt has begun, and it’s pretty awesome.
I find myself enjoying the Exit series by Cosmos more with each new set I play. Part of it is my expectations being set appropriately, part of it is improved design. Stormy Flight doesn’t quite reach a new high in the series for me, but it’s close.
I can’t imagine a better way to start the year. By the end of the day on January 4th, I had already completed 6 escape rooms, with only one of them in my home state of Illinois.
Jan 2, 2021 – Christina and I hit the road for the first time in a while to head down to Springfield, MO. In 2018, I passed near here on my way to Tulsa, but I hadn’t thoroughly explored the area.
