The impressive TCS campus at Ahmedabad played host to the Gujarat edition of the quiz. Over 600 people were witnessing the quiz making it look like a school event. After a snappy prelim, the six teams that made it to the finals included:
Nielsen Vadodara: Dhaval K and Ashutosh Dixit
Triton Comm: Mayur Rana and Sachi Mehta
Pharmazone: Dhaval Samani and Manoj B
Hanning Motors Vadodara: Aanand and Ankit
Genesis A1: Mohit Shah and Samit Shah
Ambalal Enterprises: Jalaj and Vikas Thakur
The final of the quiz was swift and tense. The teams from Genesis and Ambalal played a high-risk game and were soon starring at high negative with the witty quizmaster quipping They are in their own league as both those teams went past a minus 200.
The teams from Triton, Nielson and Hanning were consistent with Hanning in the lead right through with some high-quality answers. Towards the middle phase and the last set of posers the duo from Pharmazone made a very good come back. They scored enough to push ahead of Triton and Nielson, both former winners of the quiz.
They had to get the final question right to win the quiz and took the plunge. Hanning chose to play the watch game having put the score on the board. With Pharmazone faltering on the final question Hanning won their first title.
