JACKPOTS

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

One of our players has a Slovakian wife, and knew that Sněžka sounded either Czech or Slovak, but since he hadn’t heard of it, concluded that it was the highest point in the Czech Republic.

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.
