Here are links to some of the online hunts that were mentioned in the podcast, and a couple others that might be of interest:
P&A Magazine: Foggy Brume's bimonthly puzzle extravaganza. Hints posted starting a week after the latest issue comes out, solutions posted when the next issue comes out.
Other puzzles by Foggy Brume: various puzzle hunts by the author of P&A magazine. Includes Intercoastal Altercations 3-5, as well as the Puzzle Boat (which I'm guessing is what you meant by "Puzzle Island"). Solutions typically not posted.
Mark Halpin's puzzles: Includes his Labor Day Extravaganzas. Hints and solutions posted.
Triple Play Puzzles Extravaganza: Extravaganza by Trip Payne. It's a contest, so hints and solutions are not available.
Dan Katz's mini-hunts: Originally written as warmups for Dan's Mystery Hunt team. Solutions not posted, hints and answer verification available by email.
And lastly, My own extravaganzas: Only two so far, but I hope to have a third one up soon. One has solutions posted, while the other has hints and answer verification clumsily built in.
You did indeed loosen the lid on the jar for us ;) and we're so glad you did. Wartron is pretty much the funnest thing evar.
Way cool; thanks so much, Nathan!
(D and C: a thousand thanks to you two, too! I owe you mail, hopefully very soon.)
