A few months ago we had a request that was right up our alley.
A friend had planned a 60th birthday party for her father-in-law. The invitees were fixed, the venue was chosen, the food all planned. But she wanted something more to liven up the evening.
Her father-in-law was a doctor with a wide range of interests and a strong friend circle which had remained intact from school and college days. Why not a quiz that sort of connects the journey from them to now - she thought. She approached us. We did a small interaction with her to know her father-in-law's interests, background, work, his friends, his past - and using this info we made a custom-made quiz for the occasion.
The birthday "boy" walked into the venue with a large display of a newspaper frontpage from the day he was born. Keeping with our theme of always posing questions that are highly interesting, we took the audience on a journey that had them on the edge of their seats - realising that answers to our quiz questions were connecting them to places, events, people, moments and interests that had united them in the past.
Needless to say we were inundated with questions later on about "would we do it" for this occasion and that - and of course, we said, yes, we would. We had a whale of a time but what was most satisfying was to see the atmosphere of the room change from the regular banter to something special - we had provided them with triggers down memory lane - and that kept the warmth lit for a long while later.
