Clockwork Oran.ge (Solution)
by Derek Kisman, based on an idea by Dan Gulotta
Each of the answers has a single repeated bigram. These bigrams are used to identify a country, either using ccTLD or ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 (they’re equivalent for the countries used). These countries are all found within a single time zone. Using the military letter designations for the country’s time zone (as it would be during Mystery Hunt), we can convert each to a single letter. Reading these letters in a circle gives the answer DRAWBACK.
