Re: CoC Grand Final Spoilers For Friday January 22nd 2016

Fantastic final! I thought it was going to be a bit anticlimactically one-sided but when Dan spotted METACONID, it really spiced things up.

Brilliant performances by Dylan and Dan, and congratulations, Dylan, on becoming the Champion of Champions!

Great game! For a moment, as Jonathan had such a high score, I thought he was going to beat the record.

Hive Minds

I thought it was OK. A bit tough to get the hang of at first, but I think the more I watch it, the more I'll get into it. There has been a lot of negativity about the show on Twitter but I think it's too soon to criticise it. I imagine Only Connect had its critics when it started and look at it now!...

Re: The next Championship of Champions - now back on topic

Definitely won't be May June 2015. Hoping to get it sorted for the start of Jan 2016 (transmission), which would mean filming in from Oct 2015. Will post any definite news once everything is cleared up. So does that mean the usual 16 contestants from Series 67-73 will take part (if it goes ahead)? ...

Congratulations, Tracey! Thoroughly deserved to become an octochamp! Completely agree that Wendy was a better player than her score suggests. There were much worse players than her in the past. Wendy was just unfortunate to come up against Tracey. If she had faced someone else, she would undoubtedly...

Congratulations, Dan, on becoming series champion! Well deserved, particularly as your performances included some amazing spots (i.e. INAMORATO) and the max game in the semi-final. Commiserations, Antoinette. A worthy finalist and you even gave Dan a bit of a scare when you went ahead in the game. A...

Think they'd disallow floruits, Bradley. Not sure though, can't keep up.
I'm aware of the controversy surrounding the word FLORUIT, but isn't it a noun as well as verb? So you can pluralise it?

In other cases, if a mass noun tag is intended to apply to an entire entry, it appears before the first definition and not within it. Can you give an example where this is the case? I should be able to think of a few myself but for some reason, I can't. I had a go at finding some and I've found PUN...

Is it just me or have the Chessmen been on before? I recognise Stephen Pearson from watching the Only Connect repeats on Dave recently.
