2020 MIT Mystery Hunt

The Next Hunt

Greetings puzzlers!

MIT Puzzle Club and Team Left Out are excited to congratulate ✈️✈️✈️ Galactic Trendsetters ✈️✈️✈️ on winning the 2020 Mystery Hunt. The 2021 Mystery Hunt will begin at noon ET on Friday, January 15th, 2021. Wrap-up will take place at noon on Monday.

How to Participate

Registration info will be available closer to the Hunt! Stay tuned.


As always, Hunt is an MIT event and is best experienced in person at the Institute. For those who are coming from out of town, we will likely arrange discounted room blocks at several local hotels. Details will be available as the event becomes closer.

Current MIT Students (undergraduate and graduate): Join the student group for Hunt: Puzzle Club!

Help get your fellow students excited about Hunt. For occasional announcements and info, subscribe to puzzle-club-announce here . To come to club meeetings and other organizational events, subscribe to puzzle-club here. With any questions, email us at puzzle-club-exec@mit.edu.

Especially non-students—donate to MIT Puzzle Club: If you’re an MIT alum or just love Mystery Hunt, please consider making a donation to Puzzle Club student organization. Puzzle Club hosts puzzling activities year round as well as Hunt, and through your small donations, Puzzle Club and Hunt organizers can focus on Hunt instead of fundraising. To help ensure puzzling and Hunt remain an ongoing MIT tradition, please visit our MIT donations page .

For all non-students (including those outside of MIT), we’re happy to hear from you regarding collaboration on events, interest in attending Puzzle Club activities, and other ideas. We are also compiling a list of teams that students can join for hunts throughout the year and would love to add Hunt teams’ contact information. For any of the above, please email us at puzzle-club-exec@mit.edu.

Organizations: Hunt is also supported by generous corporate sponsors and donors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact our sponsorship team .
