"Tell the truth so as to puzzle and confound your adversaries." – Henry Wotton
Excellent job SCRuBBers for a most enjoyable Puzzle Hunt.
This weekend was the 11th Microsoft Puzzle Hunt.  The 3rd one for my team.  We are on a steady rise solving 51% of the puzzles (prior years was 46% and 38% if memory serves me correctly).  Time and experience hopefully will get us to complete an entire hunt before too many years go by.
The highlight this year was the UI designed in Silverlight.  It was not only well done and creative but the features and ability for the M.C.P. to push puzzles and video to our desktop without a refresh was awesome.
51% of the puzzles may sound week but believe me, until you take it on don’t even offer an opinion.  38 puzzles in about 30 hours does sound a bit slow especially since we had 11 people working on them… Truth be told though the release of puzzles is based on solving other waves.  So we really did not get to see first hand all 76 puzzles. 
If you want to think like a puzzler here is a puzzle you can start with…
… compared to the Puzzle Hunt however, this does not even come close.
