Is it relevant where they were? Did you have to travel to see them? Did they have to travel to see you?

If travel involved, is means of travel relevant?

Could you see them anywhere, as long as they weren't at home?

You?--->h?a?m?
Your family? ---> h?

Does your family stay in a restricted area of some sort? Are you no longer staying with your family? If yes, is it relevant why you're not staying with them? Or does "home" also refer to your home?

Do you mean that you can only "see" them with your eyes if they weren't at home or you can only meet them if they weren't at home?

Are you in some kind of danger if you see your family whilst they are at home? Is it relevant what kind of house your family stays in?

Does "they" refer to people? H? A? M?

Is your family also in danger because of them? Do they live with your family? By "svv" you mean survival?

Can "they" cause you any harm? Physical harm? Mental harm? Emotional harm? Would your life be in any danger if you went to meet your family in their presence?

Is your family also in danger because of them?no Do they live with your family?no By "svv" you mean survival? svv is a Lateral Thinking Puzzles Forum term for "Sufficiently Vague Values" So basically, I am in danger only for a sufficiently vague definition of "danger."

So if they are at home, you can't see your family? or you won't?

Do they know you?

Is their home near your family's? If they weren't at home, would they most likely be somewhere relevant?

Do they live with your family?

Near--->
in the same city as your family?
a few blocks away?
adjacent buildings?
same building?
same floor? (ignore if not an apartment)

If they were at home, would your family still be at their own home?

Would it be enough if only some of them werent at home, or would they all have to be outside their home?

How many are they?
2-10?
10-50?
50-100?
more than 100?

IS their occupation relevant?

Are they a sports club?
a student team from a university, or other educational facility?
I'm going to run with this one, if the above is wrong, hopefully there's something relevant in the following questions...
home refers to them playing a home game?
or home base in baseball?
you have some obligations during a home game which prevents you from going to see your family?
perhaps you will be in danger of losing your job?

I think that qualifies for a SPOILER!

I work at the University of Georgia. Every year the Georgia vs. Georgia Tech football rivalry game is played on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. The eatery I work at is usually closed on weekends, but we open on gamedays.

Meanwhile my family goes to visit relatives in Florida for the extended Thanksgiving weekend, and even though I get Thursday and Friday off every Thanksgiving, when there is a home game I have to work on Saturday and am therefore unable to join the family on vacation.

Therefore, I can only see my family on Thanksgiving when the Georgia football game is not at home (unless I want to get fired!)
