The Heat is On!
Day two of this international competition! The heat is on! 10 more teams have joined, for a total of 53 across 8 countries, and are now battling to become World #LuChampions.
What it’s all about
Phÿs is a game where multidisciplinary teams have to work together to solve open ended and complex puzzles. The world champion team will be the one who has found the perfect balance between witt, strategy, physical abilities and collaboration.
Second day in action
Our day started, deeply moved by this incredibly humbling image of what Lü strives for on a daily basis.
After wiping our emotions of our faces, we gazed at the entries coming in. The scores were very impressive and all throughout the day we saw a lot of movement in the rankings. Yesterday’s winners were rapidly losing their status and new teams started to show at the top of the leaderboard.
With 10 more new teams entering the battle to become world champion, the game rapidly changed. One of the biggest highlights is Harmon Middle school who not only took number spot with their 9-11 y/o team but also this team registered the best score of all categories combined so far: 70 total throws in just under 4 minutes! Either they are really good or they have a mice problem at their school and already have way too much practice. Who knows but congrats anyhow!
We look forward to the 3rd and final day of competition!
