Durham Bluff

7th November 2013, 17:45 to 18:45, Dowrick Suite, Trevelyan College

Durham Bluff
 is similar to a longstanding British game, ‘Call My Bluff’, in which players take an obscure term and, as well as defining its true meaning, offer two false definitions or ‘bluffs’. The game is played by two teams, each composed of three people, with a referee/director of ceremonies. Each team has a set of prepared terms and definitions. The referee/host presents each term and each member of the team whose word/phrase it is then takes it in turn to offer a definition of it, and the choice about which is true has to be made by the other team. Each team gains a point either by choosing the correct answer or by fooling the other team with a ‘bluff’.

Taking place on 07 November at Trevelyan College, the team from the Institute of Advanced Study and its visiting Fellows, Dr Angharad Closs Stephens, Dr Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis and Dr Bob Fosbury will take on Trevelyan College's finest, Professor Martyn Evans, Dr Jon Warren and Ryan Stopper.

The event commences at 5.45pm. Refreshments of Tea / coffee and wine be available from 5.30pm. This event is free and open to all.
