GUESTS at The Game quiz evening, held in aid of St John’s Ambulance, were happily wining and dining in the Guildhall’s Great Hall on Wednesday when their supper was disturbed by a mysterious murder in the library.
Donning forensic suits, teams from firms including KPMG, Investec, Hogan Lovells and Ernst & Young boldly set out to investigate.
After scoring highly for both their general knowledge and CSI-style deductive powers, detectives from KPMG were declared overall winners of the night.
The Capitalist suspected they might have been in it to win it early on, after noticing that while most firms had chosen their company name as their team name, those clever accountants had named themselves the “KPMGeniuses”.
However the real shocker of the evening was the result of the charity auction, where the chance to be an extra on reality television programme Made in Chelsea turned out to be, by no small amount, the most sought after lot.
