Ministry of National Mobilisation wins the Inter-Ministerial Domino Competition
In an exciting final day of domino competition, the Ministry of National Mobilisation emerged as champions after defeating the Ministry of Tourism in the semi-finals, and later the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the final.
In the other semi-final, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs defeated the Ministry of Education in a close contest on its way to the final table.
In the finals, following a 'best-of-three, first to 200 format', the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was off to a quick start, winning the first game and holding a commanding lead of 164 - 0 in the second, before the grand comeback from the Ministry of National Mobilisation, who won that game and the final game of the three. It was a heart wrenching defeat for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who was in total control of the final before having such a major collapse.
In the third place play-off, the Ministry of Education defeated the Ministry of Tourism, winning two straight games.
