d) MYSTERY HUNT (open to 12 years and older):


The Mystery Hunt is a variation of a treasure or scavenger hunt. Teams will crack a set of puzzles in a set period of time that will lead them to various fun activities that they need to do.
Teams will be made of a minimum of five people (at least one person above 50 years, and at least two people of the same gender). Each team gets five clues each. The creative clues will be in the form of verse (limmericks, couplets, haikus). Clues will be bilingual, mainly in English, with a key element in Konkani. Each clue will direct the team to an object where the next clue (to the next object) will be sent to the team. The team will have to do a fun activity at the place where the object is found. The activity will need to be recorded on their phones as proof. All the clues will need to be cracked, all objects need to be photographed, and all activities need to be completed within a set period. The winner will be decided based on whoever completes it first and the quality of their activity that is recorded, and will be awarded a nice prize!
Teams can be formed beforehand, or we'll place you in a team after you register.

e. KONKANI CROSSWORD
(not a contest)
 
At the Sammelan, please do try your hand at the large-format Konkani Crossword, made exclusively for the Sammelan by Kishore Rao form Bangalore, who created the first ever crossword in Konkani (read about it here: http://www.crosswordunclued.com/2012/12/konkani-crossword.html)
 
The Crossword will be located in the lobby, on an erasable board. You may take a crack at it yourself, or with friends and would-be friends - it is meant for community solving. When you're done, simply erase your answers for the next person to solve. It is a fun, creative exercise in which anyone can participate, between programs or simply when you need a diversion. Marvel in the imaginative ways to which our language lends itself!
