After building for a long time, a record jackpot of $426 and 25 Baht was won at The Orient on Thursday.

The team that answered a question about Hebrew days of the week by removing the vowels, just like in Hebrew.
The team being so committed to winning that they pop next door to Officeworks when their pen dies.
The team turning up 15 minutes late, but still winning the prize for second last.
HALL OF SHAME MOMENTS
The team who gave us a Nash equilibrium explaining who you should always gamble 5 points on the gambler’s question, and then getting the gambler’s question wrong.
The team that was flagrantly googling answers right in front of us. Really? At least go to the toilets if you’re going to cheat.
Have an interesting week.
