Well, that’s done then.

Mystery Hunt 2008 is over.

This year I had to hunt from Berkeley due to thesis pressures by keeping in touch via AIM and Skype. Staying awake for a long time to work is much harder when nobody else is around to help keep the energy up. But sleeping 3 hours in your own bed is about four times as rejuvenating as sleeping 3 hours on a couch or floor.

Just one observation for now : infinitely ascending chains of cryptic crosswords with interchangeable clues are awesome. But try not to pay attention to them when they start talking to you.

  1. But if you hadn’t listened to it, it wouldn’t have told you the answer, now would it have?

    I wish I hadn’t had to sleep in the middle of that puzzle. Definitley one of those puzzles that just leaves you in awe of the constructor. But I really, really needed to sleep them.

  2. I’m also sorry that I left you to go sleep. And that we screwed up the first level — I probably would have been able to stay up for the final solution if we hadn’t.
