Think.Play has just concluded the Autumnal Triathlon of 2013, our big end-of-the-term event!
The Steering Committee toiled over the Triathlon for the last month or so. Like last spring, we partnered with the Global Scholars Hall to host the event. The Global Scholars Hall Government donated $75 for drinks and snacks again to help weary bodies dance, solve puzzles, and crash cars. Big City Gamin’ and Pegasus Pizza generously donated prizes for the winningest players. Over 30 people came together tonight to compete collaboratively in three events:
- Just Dance (Wii): Highest Combined Score
- Pokemon Puzzle League (Wii): Highest Combined Score in Team Timed Event
- Burnout 2 (PS2): Highest Damage ($) Attributed in Multi-Car Collision (Crash Mode)
|Oretachi||Emily and Lauren|
|Grumps||Zack “Grump” Prichard and James “Not-So-Grump” Poling|
|Team Blitzkrieg||Shadwick and Steven|
|Megiliza||Megan and Eliza|
|Science Rash||Jon Paull and Iris Bull|
|The Dream Team||Ali and Patrick|
|Team Rocket||Cory Ingram and Laura Barbour|
|The Hobbits||Rebecca Tobe and Tessa Freeland|
|Supasupe||Avante and Kendall|
|Platypus Ninjas||Alex and Ana|
|Sidalex||Sid and Alex Mayer|
Teams were ranked against each other in each event. To determine the most “winningest” team, rankings in the three categories were summed.
|Team Name||Just Dance||Pokemon||Burnout||Sum Total||Ranking|
|The Dream Team||10||5||3||18||5th
The top (or lowest, however you look at it) 4 teams got to choose from 4 possible prize packages that split pizza gift certificates and Big City Gamin’ gift certificates. 3 other gift certificates were raffled for other attendees that did not place in the top 4, but Iris and Jon of team Science Rash forfeited their Big City Gamin’ gift certificate so that 4 people could win certificates in the raffle. Raffle winners were determined by lining participants up, assigning everyone a number, and then using an app to randomly choose winning numbers.
Everyone on the Steering Committee is so grateful for everyone’s contributions to the event—it turned out to be a fantastic pre-finals break!
