You’ll need to show a lot of pluck…
…on this whirlwind tour of the wildest, weirdest, and most wonderful objects on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame. But hold it right there: you don’t need to know a lick of country music, or even like it, to be utterly fascinated by and victorious on this adventure. On teams, you’ll follow a trail of clues that lead you to amazing objects, and you’ll answer tricky, humorous questions about what you discover.
Your search might include…
- Elvis Presley’s Cadillac, coated with crushed diamonds and fish scales
- A bag of flour that could turn into Roy Acuff
- Blindingly snazzy costumes designed by Nudie the Rodeo Tailor
- Webb Pierce’s 1962 Pontiac, festooned with guns, horseshoes, and silver dollars
- Instruments twanged by Lefty Frizzell’s wicked southpaw punch
- Private telegrams from Johnny Cash and June Carter
You might tackle such questions as…
- Find a display case that could be brought to you by Ambien. How did Lee apologize to Parisians? Answer: In the Sweet Dreams exhibit, Brenda Lee’s song “I’m Sorry” is translated to “Pardonne-Moi.”
- Find a guy who’s doin’ it with his eyes closed. Which one of his companions was poked until it broke? Answer: Bill Monroe’s mandolin, his “constant companion,” was destroyed with a fireplace poker when an intruder broke into his home.
Don’t worry if you didn’t know the answers. You’ll find them when standing in the right spot and with the help of your teammates. You don’t need to know anything about the music or the memorabilia to win: you just need sharp eyes and comfy shoes.
This twangified, fun-filled game will have your teammates yodeling your praises for days afterward.
