A Roundup of Roundups

Our friends in the UK The Logic Escapes Me & Brit of an Escape Habit as well as the San Francisco-based Escape Rumors published their annual roundups. Those who included travel and play stats like we did in the 2017 Golden Lock-In Awards owe the credit for the idea to Brit of an Escape Habit.

MIT Mystery Hunt

Next weekend we’ll be at the MIT Mystery Hunt. This will be our first time there in person. Last year we puzzled remotely.

If you’re interested in the Hunt, this is a fantastic documentary about last year’s Hunt. It was interesting to see all of the in-person activities that we missed.
