Today Team Challenge Company had the pleasure of hosting a fun filled afternoon in the style of our famous Crystal Challenge in London for the one and only Nando's.

As the guests began to arrive they had no clue what they had let themselves in for. There were a lot of nervous faces up until the afternoon activities were explained and then the guests were only interested in taking the Team Challenge Company Winners Trophy home but there would only be one champion!

The teams split into their groups for their first activities which were Interlocker, Crane Construction and Labyrinth & Jigsaw. Over at Interlocker, instructions were given to the teams and the group had 1 minute to devise the best plan that allowed them to complete the 3D puzzle in their given time. 

As always there was a cheater in the group! Today it was Tony from the Crystal Rangers who took a picture of the map hoping this would lead his team to victory. The Pink Unicorns took this activity on and were on fire using techniques that we had never seen before! As the sirens began everyone stepped back from what they were doing and there was only one team who completed the puzzle in the time and that was The Pink Unicorns. They took home their first Crystal of the afternoon gaining them the all-important seconds in the Crystal Dome Finale!

NASA was our first head to head battle, getting all the teams involved. The team had to score under 25 points in order to take away a Crystal. The packs were handed out and the teams found a spot to discuss which order they should rank the items in. Time was up and all the teams crowded round the 6 leaders as they showed which cards they ranked from most important to the least important. The first 3 cards were correct for all 6 teams and then it went wild! Team 6 placed the magnetic compass card 4th!! Everyone began to laugh and team 6 could not understand why until the penny dropped and they realised that there was no magnetic field on the moon!

It was time for the penultimate round which was the one and only Bridge Build! The teams raced against the time to build the most amazing bridges we have seen and of course also allowed the car to cross! All teams measured the gap of the podiums and the height but one team did not measure it correctly and that was Team 3... They paid the price! The teams then stepped up to the Crystal Dome Finale. Team Fastest Finger sent Bobbie into the Dome and he used a technique he called the Crab and what a success it was, managing to gain his team a massive £440, but would that be enough to take home the trophy?

The scores were checked and verified!

1st- Fastest Finger- £440

2nd- Team Sex- £420

3rd- Crystal Rangers- £260

4th- Team Unicorn- £130

5th- Mustafa - £120

6th- Team 3- £60
