Grand Hunt was a puzzle hunt that ran from Feb 10 to Feb 12 2023. It was billed as an event built to be solved by brand new puzzlers, with three modules of increasing difficulty, with a difficulty comparable to Paradox Puzzle Hunt or Hunt20 2.1 Puzzle Hunt.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The Grand Hunt was created by "The Architect" of Constructed Adventures for his birthday. Initially, it was run as an annual live event in San Diego. These live events lasted about three hours and focused more on social challenges instead of just puzzles. In its fourth year, an additional online event was created, sometimes referred to as Grand Hunt Digital.[2]

Structure[edit | edit source]

The hunt is divided into three rounds of increasing difficulty, each with 10 feeder puzzles and 1 meta puzzle, for a total of 33 puzzles.

Round Number of Feeder Puzzles Number of Metapuzzles Notes
1 10 1 Intro round, designed to be completable by brand new puzzle hunters
2 10 1 A step up in difficulty from round 1.
3 10 1 Final round, and another step up in difficulty from round 2.
