CRUMS Puzzle Hunt was an online puzzle hunt run in December 2020. It was run by three hunters who are affiliated with Herrings. The format is similar to Australian hunt rules, in that puzzles have Canned Hints, which decrease a puzzle's point value upon solving. While hints are released over time (24 and 48 hours after hunt start), hints can also be taken early (immediately decreasing the puzzle's point value).

Plot[edit | edit source]

The plot of the hunt is a game of the board game Clue, where the goal is to determine the identity and location of the murder of Mr. Boddy.
