Party Down & See How Our Games Work
You could say we’ve been in a partying mood lately. Players are enjoying two of our newest virtual trivia games: Cheers! It’s the Virtual Happy Hour Game and Fun in the Sun: A Virtual Summertime Trivia Game. And Fiesta Time! A Virtual Cinco de Mayo Trivia Game is on its way.
So now it’s your turn to party hearty—or, rather, to party art-y! You’re invited to try out this miniature scavenger hunt, featuring seven works of art full of people partying perhaps a little too hard. It doubles as a fun game, and a glimpse at the way many of our virtual scavenger hunts work. Can you find the art and figure out the corrects answers? Good luck!
How Does It Work?
Easy! Instead of sending you to a museum in person, each question starts with a link to a page of a website full of of art. You must follow the clue to find and click on a particular piece of art. (Some of the art is a little bit risqué, so this mini-game is not for kids.)
Next, read the question and look for the answer. You might have to look closely at the painting, or dig into its written description for the right detail. When you think you have the answer, click the red button to see how you did. Normally you’d be playing in our custom, browser-based app for points, but today you’re just here to have fun. Ready?
First, visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art to check out somber Dutch people…except for that one guy wearing eggs! Boy, these folks sure know how to party. Another guy here might make you exclaim, “I never sausage behavior!” What is that second man’s weirdly appropriate name?
Feast on these fancy old dishes at the Met. Find a drunk old fellow who has lost his clothes and his balance. What is he is too tipsy to sit on without help?
Bread Is Not for Barfing
Check out this collection of art from Google Arts & Culture. Scroll down a bit to the wide grid of art. Find the party raising their glasses to toast. And that’s the only toast they’ll get, since someone is just about barfing on the bread. What is his job title, apparently?
Baby’s First Booze
Find three men and a baby in this gallery at the Art Institute of Chicago. Besides the fact that they’re letting a baby drink alcohol, what stuff has you seeing green here?
A Tale of Two Cities
Stick around the Art Institute of Chicago to see more highlights from their collection. Pass a swinging bar scene to find a famously quiet last call. This scene might be set in New York, but what out-of-town team is represented here?
Dress to Impress
Examine out some paintings at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California. Find someone whose wine has gone to her head. The things that go on her feet tell you she’s a…what?
O Captains, My Captains
Finally, stop by the St. Louis Art Museum to see some fancy old American art. Join in on a rowdy party full of mischievous sailors. While one person pukes in the doorway, and a few fellows have passed out, one guy is having trouble at both ends. While he can’t keep his drink down, what ensures that he might not be able to sit down, either?
