Re: Spoilers for 18th March 2019

Is OUTLAIN actually allowed now since the new dictionary update? The definition Susie implied was there doesn't match the free version (to outdo in lying) so maybe the paying version allows it. You could do a 38×25-6 method in the third numbers to go with 38×25+6 in the first. Finally, I like how R...

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 27th February 2019 (Series 80, Prelim 26)

Dinos is smashing it. Had the first 2 letters selections been more generous, Zarte's 150 score would have probably been exceeded.
