Forgive me if I am being scrupulous but I have a couple nagging questions that I was hoping someone could help answer…
Some of my extended family members arranged a scavenger hunt-type game, mostly to have fun, but also with the possibility of winning a money prize. The money was collected from all the adults before the hunt started and gathered together as one big prize for whichever team gained the most points.
Long story short a couple of my team members took the initiative to cheat and I know I did wrong because as much as I disliked what was going on, I ultimately went along with it (I didn’t speak out against it, refuse to participate, etc.).
Example: One way to win points was to answer (correctly) a series of questions pertaining to our grandmother. The questions regarded things like her favorite singer, favorite movie, favorite color, etc. We arrived at a non-participating family member’s house to get a picture of a particular vehicle that was on the hunt list. The cheating occurred when a couple of my team members enlisted the help of the non-participating family members to answer the aforementioned questions. I basically said nothing for fear of causing drama.
My two questions are:
What do you think I should have done when this situation was happening?
What do you think I should do now, if anything, to rectify the situation?
The facilitator of this game made it clear that cheating was grounds for disqualification. I don’t want to seem like a “tattle tale” but I don’t want to further participate in something immoral assuming what happened truly was immoral (at least to some degree).
Thank you for your time.
