PREPARING FOR THE GAMES
The 2019 program will include fun new elements—including roving characters offering clues to the evening's mystery. But much of the evening will be familiar to veteran participants:
- Tables will be organized by nations — 33 in all. Countries are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis, so early to lock in the nation of your choice!
- Throughout the evening, tables will compete in a series of intellectual and culinary competitions, including trivia rounds, tasting contests and — new this year — a whodunit mystery.
- We'll award bonus points for team spirit — so feel free to dress in ways that represent your respective country, organization or table theme. Or feel free to wear cocktail attire.
- And while you may not enlist the help of Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant or Cortana, you are certainly welcome to line your team with ringers: sommeliers, chefs, Jeopardy champions, Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie, and so forth. (Accept no help from anyone named Moriarty.)
