The Curio Show: A Team Building Experience in Deduction and Deception

The Curio Show is a captivating team building activity that blends the thrill of Antiques Roadshow with the wit of bluffing and deduction. Forget dusty vases and predictable plates – this game throws a diverse collection of curious objects at your team, ranging from the mystifying to the downright bizarre.

The Intricate Game Play:
