Rage

Rage is a team that participates in the MIT Mystery Hunt as well as a few other online hunts. Formed in 2014, the team was formed out of the remnants of Manic Sages after the team hosted the 2013 Mystery Hunt. Since their formation, they have placed in the top 10 in six Mystery Hunts. In hunts, their team name is usually a pun on the word "Rage".

History[edit | edit source]

Rage was formed in 2014, as a successor to the Manic Sages team, which disbanded after hosting the 2013 Mystery Hunt. The team name was chosen in part due to its phonetic similarity to Manic Sages, as well as a callback to a 2007 MIT Mystery Hunt, where a puzzle used the fact that if you viewed a particular building (the Metropolitan Storage Warehouse Fire Proof) near the campus, it would instead read "Metropolitan Rage Warehouse Ire Proof". As a result of mainly being formed from Manic Sages, the team has strong ties with the Mathcamp program.

Hunt performances[edit | edit source]

In 2020, Rage hunted as "This Rage Intentionally Left Blank".
