Hope Springs Eternal

It's December 1952, and the country is celebrating the start of a brand new era. The young Queen Elizabeth is to be crowned next year and Hope Brothers, Brighton's premier department store, is celebrating its centenary! Originally founded as a curio shop by George and Reginald Hope when they brought back many exotic artefacts from their travels in South America, Hope Brothers has grown into the impressive establishment seen today. To mark the Centenary, an extra special Staff Christmas Party is being held in the brand new Daisy Fresh Milk Bar and the prize for Employee of the Year is a fabulous World Cruise!

Rumours abound of new developments and old feuds. Is the store expanding or on the verge of financial ruin? Will Young Mr. Hope be taking the store's helm this year, in line with family tradition, or will Old Mr. Hope hang on even longer? Will traditional values triumph over new-fangled fads and fashions? Have the staff all done very well, or have some of them been slacking?

The store has closed its doors for the Christmas break, and the party is about to begin....

This is a light-hearted game with a slight flavour of 'Are You Being Served' hidden amongst milkshakes, muffins, mystery and mistletoe.

Game System:None
Information for Players:The game is inspired by the well-known TV sitcom, so expect some mild innuendo and silliness, with some additional twists. We will not be attempting to reproduce the TV characters - where's the fun in being predictable? - but some of ours may contain some random similarities. How free you are and how you walk are entirely your own concerns...

The game is set in 1952, so feel free to break out the appropriate clothes from the back of the wardrobe (or borrow from an older generations), but 'period' dress is not required. The store has a renowned Pet Department containing some exotica - NO live phys-reps will be used!

Character sheets will be around 3-4 pages long. Background information will be a couple of pages, if that. We hope to email them out in advance but will also provide printed copies just prior to the game.
