The Hunter Games
For four wild days, University of Chicago students turn scavengers.
"This year’s list, the longest in the twenty-six-year history of the Hunt, consisted of three hundred and fifty-one items. It filled nineteen pages and contained such challenges as: Build a ten-foot bridge across Botany Pond using nothing but balsa wood and glue (60 points). Revamp a Xerox machine for office warfare (12 points). Secure a meeting with the mayor of Chicago (25 points). Produce a scale model of the Great Lakes out of fire (15 points)."

The magazine, modeled after the New Yorker, was published from June 1926 to April 1935 and covered the literary and artistic world in the Second City. There are two substantial collections - one right on campus in the Regenstein Library, the other in the New York Public Library. But the most exciting thing? It’s re-launching next week
