How To Win the Cup and Ball Game on Knowhere

To win the cup and ball game from the big brain on Knowhere, you will simply need to watch where the cup with the ball under it goes. The cups are moved around suspiciously slowly. Once the cups have finished moving, click the option for where you think it is, and if you're right you will win 1000 Galactic Units.

Do not play again. If you win the first round (which is highly likely), the vendor will offer to increase your money if you play again. This will cost you 1500 Units. Do not engage in the bet at all. The rules of the game stay the same, all you need to do is watch where the cup with the ball in it goes but this is where it takes a dodgy turn. You can and most likely will choose the right place that the ball ended up. However, when the vendor lifts the cup the ball will not be there. Peter will quickly start to figure out that the vendor cheated and then the vendor will disappear along with your 1500 Units.
