What an incredible journey it has been! 3 days of competition, 53 teams across 8 countries and thousands of kids engaged to become World #LuChampions.
What it was all about
Phÿs is a game where multidisciplinary teams have to work together to solve open ended and complex puzzles. The world champion teams are the ones who have found the perfect balance between witt, strategy, physical abilities and collaboration.
Highlights of the Tournament
Harmon Middle School kids, who won the 9-11 years old pool, can definitively be proud of their performance! Not only did they get first place in their pool, but also got best score of the three categories: only 112 throws to solve the 9 levels! Wow! Congrats!
A special mention to Wolgye Elementary School in South Korea and MgrBelzile Saint Ulric in Canada who succeeded at being within the top three in two age groups. We still don’t know if their success is related to them playing Phÿs a lot prior to the championship or if they are accustomed to dealing with mice issues!

The most engaged school
This is exciting! We received a blast of videos, photos and messages of teachers all around the world telling us why THEIR school was the most engaged. It was really hard to decide. It took us a full weekend to sort it out and some of us were even arguing about it during our Christmas Party. Even if only one school won, we decided to share the top videos and photos that reached to our hearts.
