- ConSuite is in need of volunteers if anyone is interested.
- “Improvitons” will be performing again on Sunday

o discussed glasses issue for one of the clues that needs red glasses to read. Will glasses be stolen? Can we chain them to the box? Use of a monocle? Can the box stay at a table? Issue still up for discussion.
o Map – will have invisible writing on it. Discussed how to get a UV source. Possibly a blacklight in the house symbol display. Possible using lemon juice to write the clue with player needing to find a hair dryer to read it.
o Discussed placing clues at Merchants tables and other club tables.
o Discussed have clues placed on the body of the heads of clubs so that players must hunt that person down. For example: Adm. K’var carries one around with him.
o Place a clue in the Art Room. One clue requires the use of Keys. Possible place #’s on keys that are hung on a particular art piece with a riddle below to figure out order of #s. #s are for use in unlocking the combination lock on another box. Possibly use a cryptogram type of riddle.
o We discussed the possibility of a “mirror” clue. Player must hold clue up to a mirror.
