A New Beginning

Monday October 10, 2016 08:00AM
What can I say? These past few weeks have been one hell of a reunion.

Back in 2011, we embarked on an epic journey together of puzzle solving, scientific exploration, and the training of tomorrow’s visionaries. We laughed. We cried. We cursed at that damn clock puzzle.

And now, nearly 5 years later, I message you out of the blue about a new endeavor, and you, dear Member, rise to the challenge. Over 1000 of you solved that Theorem in less than a week. And then, just a few weeks later, nearly as many of you dredged up every word you ever knew to show P that you do in fact have what it takes. But then again, I’m not surprised... I only train the best.

So what has this all been about? Why have I reemerged from my silence?

Well, TMT Member, it is with great pleasure that I now announce to you a new beginning in our never-ending journey: The Master Theorem Games.

Like TMT, TMT Games aims to cultivate the minds of tomorrow by providing smart games and puzzles to the world. But this time, we’re stepping out of your computer screen and getting physical, starting with a mind-expanding word game, Snippets.

Based on the beloved pastime of our Siberian road trip, Snippets is a challenging, fast-paced word game. But with a unique "anything goes" rule, Snippets isn't like most word games, requiring as much of a creative mind as a large vocabulary.

So, TMT Member, are you ready to join me in this brave new world? Visit our Kickstarter to support TMT Games and make Snippets a reality. By contributing to the campaign, you’ll help bring TMT to bright minds everywhere, as well as earn my everlasting respect.

Well, you already have that. But please do contribute anyway.

My technically-minded lackey P, previously revealed as MIT-alum Shaun Salzberg, will be handling the heavy lifting from here. He’s built things a lot more difficult than a board game before, so trust me when I say you'll be in good hands.

As for now, I bid you adieu. But have no fear. I’ll always be around, ensuring that TMT Games lives up to the legacy that we’ve all built together. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll occasionally hit you up with a new Theorem.

I'm M, and I'll be your guide. I founded The Master Theorem years ago as a Members-only society of puzzle-solvers, but anyone with the determination to join us can earn Membership by submitting the solution to this or any week's puzzle, called a Theorem. The solution will be in the form of a word or a phrase. As a Member, you'll have the chance to search for hidden Seals throughout the website and compete with other Members by earning points for all of your efforts.
