Today Palindrome (the team that came in second in this year’s Mystery Hunt) has released the practice hunt that fourteen of them wrote leading up to this year’s Hunt; it’s being hosted on P&A’s website, and it’s called Ya Buncha Yo-yos.
Use it to sharpen your skills, and next year you too can solve the Mystery Hunt in less than 18 hours! (And if you enjoy the puzzles, be sure to make use of the tip jar… as someone who used to post my own practice hunts, I can confirm that it’s very nice to be paid for your work.)

Also, this isn’t exactly puzzlehunt content, but perennial Mystery Hunt winner Francis Heaney has crowdsourced a packet of puzzles, Puzzles for Progress, to raise money for charity. A little off-topic, I know, but it’s for a good cause, and if there are people reading that disagree with my political views, I might as well drive them away early.
