Our friend and occasional teammate Alex Rosenthal delivered a wonderful TED Talk on puzzle hunts, puzzle design, and the undertakings that are winning and creating an MIT Mystery Hunt.
It’s a delightful short speech. He also hid a puzzle within it. (I haven’t had time to attempt it, so I cannot hint you… although I have a few thoughts.)
Alex also had a short-lived YouTube series called The Aha Moment where he took viewers through the process of solving puzzle hunt puzzles. I liked the channel and I am still holding out hope that he’ll revive it.
