Dream On

Scott Purdy

Team members attending the party were treated to a karaoke night and invited to come sing for the partygoers. After each song, the artist and title of the song were listed on the blackboard behind the stage, along with a number or numbers, in the style of Solitaire Hangman puzzles. Using the first letter of the artist (as alphabetized in the songbook of available music, so, for example, Nancy Sinatra was an N, not an S), these numbered blanks spelled out the message CALL IN REVIVALS AS YOUR ANSWER, indicating that teams should call in the answer REVIVALS, as hinted at both in the flavortext “party to wake the dead” and by the fact that the party was hosted by the late Dr. Awkward.
