MIT Mystery Hunt 2009 was the 29th iteration of the MIT Mystery Hunt. It was run by The Evil Midnight Bombers What Bomb At Midnight, the winners of the 2008 Mystery Hunt. The theme of the hunt was the fictional board game Escape from Zyzzlvaria, which was first introduced in the 2002 Mystery Hunt puzzle "D2: The Mighty Duck Konundrum". The setting from that puzzle was greatly expanded, and teams were given a copy of the board game, with aspects of the board game being used throughout the hunt.
