The MIT Mystery Hunt is a weekend-long puzzle-solving competition run out of MIT in mid-January. Teams compete to solve puzzles, meta-puzzles, and occasionally meta-meta-puzzles. Our team, Grand Unified Theory of Love, is relatively small and focused on having fun solving puzzles for an entire weekend rather than the competition side of things.

The Mystery Hunt is always the weekend of Martin Luther King Day. The Mystery Hunt for 2018 starts at noon, Friday, January 12. The event will kick off with an event in Kresge auditorium.
