FAC Game Show

Thursday, January 21, 2021: 7–8:30pm EST

Online via Zoom - To benefit the Folk Arts Center of New England

The SOFA (Some Other Folk Arts) series coordinators are excited to present the First Ever FAC Game Show on Thursday, January 21, 2021!! The game is Souvenir Sleuth, in which teams compete to identify objects acquired by FAC friends in their travels. Objects should reflect the culture of the country or area they represent.

Several small teams will try to guess what the object is and where it’s from. Teams will have a few minutes in breakout rooms to come up with questions (one from each team member) to ask about the object; then, after the questions are answered, will have a few more minutes to decide on a guess – one guess per team. And then the object’s owner will have a chance to tell its story, if they want.

  • To be on a team, send your name to game@facone.org and we’ll randomly assign you to one.
  • To submit a souvenir you think will stump the teams, send a photo and brief description to game@facone.org.

We really hope you’ll have fun watching as the teams try to figure out the objects they’re shown, even if you are neither on a team nor waiting with bated breath to see if anyone guesses your object. While the teams deliberate, everyone else can be swapping stories about their own travels, souvenirs, customs declarations, packing adventures, etc.

Will there be prizes? Maybe. There will NOT be a new car under your seat, however.
