MIT Mystery Hunt 2008 was the 28th iteration of the MIT Mystery Hunt. It was run by Palindrome, the winners of the 2007 Mystery Hunt. The theme of the hunt was a murder mystery, where teams needed to determine the circumstances of the murder of Dr. Otto Awkward. Teams started off with the Little Black Book round, a Meta-matching round where the meta associations were not given. Upon solving a meta (in addition to solving a free puzzle at the start of the hunt) teams would access the next Dossier round in the sequence. Solving all Dossier rounds would let teams go to the endgame.
