Clash of the Halls 2021: Day 2

For the second day of Clash, the dress-up theme was Team Tuesday – dress up in your favorite sports or other kind of team gear. To kick off the events, halls received another riddle.

During midday, halls participated in Think Tank, which included 92 questions and challenges. The topics covered history, math, art, culture, and much more. Halls were each provided a separate Zoom link, where members researched and collaborated to solve the puzzles. The Think Tank placements were as follows: 1st (tied): 1504/1505, 3rd: 1506, 4th: 1503, 5th: 1507, 6th: 1501, and 7th: 1502.

The night event was Talent Show, featuring multiple placement ties and other surprises. 1501 took 7th place for their show featuring a variety of musical and other talents with an emo twist. Next, 1505 and 1503 tied for 5th place. 1505’s show featured out-of-this-world talents, including solving a Rubik’s cube in one minute, rock music, dancing, and more. In 1503’s show, Agent 003 was sent on a special mission to check out a suspicious YouTube account with videos ranging from card tricks to painting. In another tie, for 3rd place, was 1504 and 1502. 1504’s video featured “The Dream Machine”, which transports users to a magical world inside their head where they can express their various talents. In 1502’s video, viewers were transported to “o2’s Got Talent”, which featured acting as wonderful as the wizard himself, as well as talented contestants entering the show. And guess what… in yet another tie for 1st place was 1506 and 1507. 1506’s eerie show flashed between Patient 06 and her various thoughts, which included singing, dancing, and painting. Finally, 07’s talent show featured a musically talented ship full of pirates fighting the Flaming07 ship, only to sink to their Yellow Submarine doom. If you missed the show, you can view it here.

After the surprising number of ties in Talent Show, plus Think Tank, riddle, and points from Day 1, here are the current standings (without hall decorations):
