A promotion for waitresses

by Terr

I am curious is you have any ideas on how I could adapt this to work with my waitresses. I want them to upsell certain items and in return get money to move forward in the game or a clue or something.

So week one they would sell appetizer x. Each time they sold one they would print a copy of the receipt and place it in an evelope. At the end of the week I would tally up what they have and award them based on that.

Hope this makes sense.

My response:

Hi Terr - I'm not entirely sure what you mean, but I don't think it would really work with the games on this site. They are designed to be played in a single sitting over an evening - what you're describing sounds like it takes place over a number of weeks.

I do like the idea of using murder mystery parties as team building events, but I'm not sure it would work to upsell some items over others.

(But I could be wrong - if anyone else has an idea, please do add a comment!)
