Hide-ing Out

Last Saturday, we had a fun filled time at ET Zone outing, at the "Hideout Cafe"


Representing N116, we have..*drumroll*

Zhifu, Yubing, Taru, Sienny, Yenny, Magdeline and myself.

--

Up 1st, was ice-breaking session, each group gets to play different games and ours is called "Ugly Doll" and the rule is simple. (somewhat similar to "Heart Attack")

Everyone picks a card from the pile, and whoever picks the matching card with someone else in the group, you shout the person's name instead of "Heart Attack!"

Whoever is 1st will take the card from the other party.

So in this case, the one with the most cards win, and the losing one will be the one with the least card.

Guess who lost this 1st game in our group?

(If a picture paints a thousand words, a video will replace all my sentences)

Sidenote: There is a "forfeit tree" in Hideout Cafe,


and Zhifu picked the..

"Go to your friends and shout "It's raining!" Then, run to the washroom and wet your face. Return and ask them "How did you manage to keep so dry."

while many others in the other groups picked something else..
Like:


This superhero in the picture who has to don a costume and walk around the whole place, taking pictures with others.

We had competitive games with the other groups to score points so that we could win the reward of..

$180 TCC vouchers

and Hideout vouchers for the Runner-up

of course the teams wouldn't want to be the last because everyone in the team will have to pick a forfeit from the forfeit tree.

Next up, we had the game of "Guesstures - Bible edition"


(About: Act up! Act out! Act fast! You have only a few short seconds per word! It looks easy, but it’s not. As soon as your team guesses the word on the card, grab it before it gets swallowed by the card-hungry Mimer Timer. Then hurry on to the next card! The harder the word, the more points it’s worth. Grab the most points to win!)

I was the 1st to represent the group, but I was the videographer at the same time, since I'm up playing the game, you won't see my video.;)

And Yubing..

We had a whooping 21 points, only 1 point short of the leading team.

By this time, Zhifu was already planning how we can spend the vouchers.

Following this, we went back to our groups, had some refreshments and went on the the next 5 games.

"HedBanz"
(Figure out if the picture on your head is an animal, food, or a household item.
You never know what you are until you start asking questions! Everybody knows but you!)

"Taboo"
(The object of the game is for a player to have their partner(s) guess the word on their card without using the word itself or five additional words listed on the card.)

"Mad Gab"
(It’s the game that has everyone speaking a strange language called Mad Gab! Read a group of simple words aloud, like “Yore Luke Ink Hood”. Did you “hear” the answer? Try saying them again. Sound familiar? Quick, the timer’s ticking! Did you hear yourself say “You’re Looking Good”?
You and your teammates have two minutes to sound out three puzzles.
The faster you guess, the more you score!

OK, the timer is set, the card flipper is loaded and everyone’s ready for a laugh riot!
Just remember: when it comes to scoring points, it’s not what you say, it’s what you hear!)


Gabriel, we know you couldn't join us. This is for you..:p



"Squint"
(The focus is on the fun! Using a variety of shapes, build a picture of the item listed on your Squint Card. Get the picture? If one of the players guesses what you are building before time runs out, you both score points!)

"Bonhanza"
(The whole team will have to work together and plant as many seeds as possible! Beware of the vermin who can take destroy your seeds...Score coins as you harvest the seeds)

Taru & Yubing shows their vocab and acting skills in the game of Taboo..

At the end of the day, we were proud to have won the 3rd position with 217 points.

falling behind the 1st which had 250+ points and 2nd which had 230+ points.

We, the 7 people did quite well if u calculate the average per person points..;)

Don't miss out the upcoming zone outing coming to you end of April!
