Analysis:

 

Blue Team

 

Lack of beer drinkers severely hurt the team's ability to put points on the board and they were not able to make up the necessary points to overcome their deficit to the Gray & Gold teams' Photo & Item points.  Initial placement of participants was to blame for this occurrence, however malted alternatives to beer do exist such as Smirnoff Ice & Zima.  Future games will take this into consideration when creating teams and placing participants.

 

Gold Team

 

Lack of additional beer coupled with the loss of several bottles of consumable alcohol hurt this team and possibly prevented it from taking first place.  With strong photography and respectable consumption this team could have placed first if it had not lost several higher point value bottles of liquor, some already finished.  At the conclusion of the evening though, the team may not have had the steam to finish those remaining bottles as some of the team's stronger drinkers were nearly out of commission, so this may be a moot point.  Additional beer may have allowed some of these teammates to postpone their extreme drunkenness till just before the finish, in the process getting more points.

 

Gray Team

 

With an excellent start and great photography & consumption this team was poised to easily win it all, however photo penalties single handedly took this team out of contention.  The rules stated that each member of a team must appear as the sole team member in at least one photo, nonetheless three teammates did not participate in solo photos and the team was penalized.  Aside from the penalties, this team performed wonderfully.

 

White Team

 

With a mediocre showing in photo & item accumulation, this team made up a lot of ground in the alcohol consumption, and that proved to be the deciding factor.  They were also the most traveled team, netting them some additional points.  Their major move was to infiltrate another party allowing them to complete a number of photo opportunities as well as farming out some alcohol consumption.  In the end, their liver's didn't let them down.
