Well maybe a wee bit!!
The BWG regularly hold evening events and on Wednesday night they were holding a pub crawl quiz called Bar Cluedo (Yep, based on the game Cluedo). We had to form teams of four so Jen, Mum, Louise and I got together and called ourselves 'The Maid Did It' (We were told we had to have a group name that was linked with Murder Mysteries and that cheesy title was the best I could come up with at short notice!!).
We had such good fun - we all met up in a pub called Hanrahans (Soi 4) where each team was given a sheet of paper which told the beginning of a story in a Sherlock Holmes stylie - Each Pub represented a room which, once visited, could be crossed off, in the body of the story were clues which would allow us to eliminate a character and a method, and then at the end of the sheet was a cryptic clue which would lead us onto the next pub. There were monitors stationed at each pub who would give you the next part of the story and were there to help you if you got stuck and the only real rules were that all members of the team had to arrive together and that at least one of the team bought a drink (Now THAT we did manage!!).
OMG - We got our 1st sheet and then spent ages trying to figure out what the hell we were doing and where we should be going. Chris, who had joined another team, strolled past very smugly making 'It's easy' comments (Harrumph). Honestly - I think we might still be sitting in the first pub trying to decipher the cryptic clue if it hadn't been for Mum......we quickly realised that we each had different talents.......Mum was good at solving the cryptic clues, Jen and I were good at finding the connections within the clues and Louise was great at spotting the clues in each pub. I do have to say that we did have a fifth team member who was completely invaluable.......her name was Berry (as in Berry of the Black variety).......I am slightly ashamed to say that we occasionally relied upon Jen's BlackBerry to answer some of the questions (Oh come on.....how many groups of women would know what Stadium is home to the New York Giants???). Anyway, (moving swiftly on) we came second and won a magnifying glass each
Yes, we cheated and STILL didn't win!!
