The love child of a pub quiz and a scavenger hunt
You’ll need to show off your knowledge to prevail at this unusual game at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each question challenges your team to answer a trivia question, and that answer becomes a crucial clue to answering a question about an object on display. The trivia comes from movies, music, history, sports, science, books—you name it.
Knowing one of Lady Gaga’s hit songs could help you find out what’s going on in a painting of a sneaky card game. Remembering how many stars make up a famous dipper can help you track down a goddess getting a constellation prize. And you know that Freudian theory that Woody Allen said shouldn’t be applied just to women? That can help you spot the, um, shortcomings of a Roman statue. If you love pub quizzes, you’ll love this hunt!
If you get stuck, you can consult your smartphone—but keep in mind that the teams that get the answers faster will answer more questions and score more points.
This might be our most challenging hunt yet, so you’ll probably want to pack your team with up to six brainiacs.
