As one of the people who played, I had a lot of fun. It turned out to be especially good for me because the MIT Mystery Hunt was this weekend, but I came down with a bad stomach bug and couldn't go, so Treasure Hunt was my once chance to puzzle this year.
Thanks for running it!
Marleigh, we're glad you played and had fun!
DASH 3 is supposed to happen in Boston at the end of April. Details should be available soon at playdash.org.
