As I become older, I find that my comfort zone has shifted. The once scary things like leaning backwards to repel 60 meters, giving speeches or going to an all-French speaking party have become relatively easy. Nowadays it’s the odd things that push me outside my comfort zone. 

My latest off-the-wall jump into the unknown is signing up for SpyGame Geneva; a game that is targeted toward people well outside my demographic group. SpyGame Geneva is described as “a full-scale role playing game, loosely based on topical current issues and which takes place in the world of the modern spy.”  In both French and English, the game involves on-line research, puzzles, riddles and two trips into the city.

I am nervous as hell. What if I fail miserably and wasted CHF 99? But then I watch the promotional video and I’m a little embarrassed to say but I become giddy with excitement.

The game starts on Tuesday at 12:30 which is a busy day for me, but “they” say the game is designed so that working people can participate. There are four stages and at least once participants must meet a contact person to retrieve the code.  So if you see this lady in town


don’t blow my cover.
