Winners Savoir Faire Rajiv D'Silva and Harshavardhan B
Runners Splash Communications Krishnamurthi and Anirudha Sengupta
The beautiful city of Goa played host to its edition of the quiz. It was a typical Goa quiz with teams enjoying the moment rather than being too worried about qualifying or winning. After a snappy prelim, the six teams that made it to the final included:
DIVE Goa: Ajey Patil and Nitish Wagle
Savoir Faire: Rajiv D'Silva and Harshavardhan B
Goa Tech Solutions: Ameya and Ramachandra
Cajetan Vaz Branding: Cajetan Vaz and Shweta
Splash Communications: Krishnamurthi and Aniruddha Sengupta
Adicent Designs: Ashish and Shoaib
The final of the quiz was swift and tense. Splash started with a negative almost like it were a tradition, with the witty quizmaster quipping They unfailingly start this way. The teams from Adicent and Goa Tech played a high-risk game and were soon starring at negatives despite some outstanding answers. Dive Goa looked good early on but could not maintain the tempo beyond the first couple of rounds.
The Savoir Faire duo who have been past winners but have not managed a win in last four seasons started slowly but surely. Playing high values on questions they were sure about; they did not take any negatives. Splash in the meantime came back well to get to the runner up slot while Savoir Faire won the quiz comfortably.
The chief guest Mr. Jaikant Shroff, GM, Vivanta Panaji Goa appreciated the teams and spoke on the importance of knowledge for success in a fast-paced modern world.
