That'll Tichu to Mess With Us

Aaron Fuegi

This was an event more than a puzzle and was pretty self-explanatory. Teams learned the partnership card game Tichu, sent two people to Mystery Mystery HQ to play against experienced players representing Dr. Awkward, and once they won a single hand (such as by a score of 55-45) without making a cumulative 3 rules mistakes (those making 3 mistakes were sent away for a period of 30 minutes to learn the rules better, at which point they could make another appointment), they were handed the answer word: UNHABITUAL

Here are some statistics on the results, for anyone who might be curious.
