Top 4 teams qualified for the mental calculator round. There, the weaker your opponent, the more you were to benefit. The choice was a fair play of probability; or simply fortuitous so to say.

The puzzles were not exactly mathematical conundrums, but were intriguing enough to stick with you. They could solve as many as 8 out of 10 problems. The total score of the last 2 rounds gave us our winners.
