Random is a team that participates in the MIT Mystery Hunt. The team was formed in 2010, as a second team from MIT's Random Hall after Metaphysical Plant. The team generally includes the word Random in their team name, and their username jarthur refers to J. Arthur Random, the mascot and legendary founder of Random Hall. The team won the 2014 MIT Mystery Hunt as "One Fish, Two Fish, Random Fish, Blue Fish" and subsequently wrote the 2015 hunt (the ocean exploration theme likely inspired by their 2014 name). Subsequently, that hunt writing group split off from the Random team as Hunches in Bunches.
