Fruit Bowl and Tea Time
we bought fruit and prepared tea. we washed and cut up fruit to serve, and had discussions using the Tea Time prompts. we bought paper bowls and plastic forks. we forced frosh to wash communal mugs after drinking tea with them.
the fruit was well-received. not many people drank the tea. no one took the paper prompts that we cut out.
Games (but same) and Games (but different)
in practice nobody read the instructions taped on the walls, only the ones printed out and on the table. we printed too many copies, only three or so should be enough.
Crosswords and Puzzles
we used the crossword grids left over from last year (there were five) and made two new crosswords. one of them (the one with two PI rebuses for each themer answer) was too hard. the other one was just right. i'd say the easy one took about an hour or so to complete, but most of it was just waiting, and often five or so people would come and finish the whole crossword on their own.
we gave some Logic Puzzles. we printed too many copies again, in practice i think only ten-ish or so of each mattered. we also printed the only connect connection signs and had the sequences in the booklet, those were both somewhat popular. make sure to have pencils ready in advance next year.
people played Smash. or at least we tried to, but we didn't actually have the smash game card. idk what ended up happening.
Other Proposed Events
same stamp system as last year
