Previously: Showdown 2017 begins!
Showdown '17 might be off to a easy start, but the teams are still bringing it! Let's check in on what the 13 competing teams have been up to this last week.
Puzzle 1: Pagan Army Art
2017 Showdown Drinkdown
For those familiar with YA Mixology from previous years, the cocktails portion of Showdown underwent a massive overhaul for this summer. Or, rather, everything old is new again, since this is actually the original mixology challenge from the very first DC-only Showdown!
This year, teams will be hosting themed YA Mixology parties and creating YA-inspired cocktails on the spot! (See here for full details.) For now, though -- and for points! -- teams only needed to submit their party theme, invitations, and spinner.
FYADAL: "A Court of Thorns and Roses"
KCFYA: "Unicorn Rainbow Dreams"
LONFYA: "Criminally Good"
LRFYA: "Daughter of Firewater and Ice"
FYAON: "We're Witches, Bitches"
FYAVWA: "A Killer Party"
Stay tuned to #2017 ya mixology for the team parties that will be hosted throughout the summer!
It's early still, but there's a tie for first place between KCFYA, LONFYA, LRFYA, and FYAVWA. Check the scoreboard for the full standings!
