Left Out

Left Out is a team that participates in the MIT Mystery Hunt. Formed in 2005, the team has placed in Top 10 in eleven Mystery Hunts since 2010. The Team consists primarily of West Coast based puzzlers. In 2019, Left out won the Mystery Hunt and subsequently hosted Mystery Hunt 2020.

History[edit | edit source]

The team's name comes from the fact that the large contingent of West Coast puzzlers in the team are often "Left Out" of in-person events and solving.[1]
