Cambridge Puzzle Hunt Chronology
← 2017

The Cambridge Puzzle Hunt 2018 was the second iteration of the Cambridge Puzzle Hunt, jointly organized by the Trinity Mathematical Society, the Archimedeans and the Trinity College Science Society. It followed the Australian hunt format, with four puzzles being released each day over two days, for a total of 8 puzzles. Canned hints would be released for each puzzle after being open for 1 and 2 days. There was no final metapuzzle. The top three prize-eligible teams (containing at least one member from the United Kingdom) were Of All Nincompoops The Greatest, The Magpie, and Every Sense of the Word 2, who all scored the maximum of 40 points. Ruth won the Lone Wolf prize for being the top solo team, with 23 points.
