Big Game Challenge Post Game Report

February 4, 2015

Congratulations to Seattle!

After twelve days of play,  Seattle took home the trophy, with a 51-44 victory. Both teams were more active than usual during the challenge, and with 50 less players, New England put up a strong fight. In the end, Seattle’s 676 players took a total of 37,500,215 steps to defeat the 626 players of New England’s team who reached 36,320,038 steps. Just like the The Big Game on Sunday night, our challenge was a real nail biter in the end!

With the exception of January 24, New England players were the much more active team. It looks like they really wanted to win that Activité !
