Re: Spoilers for Tuesday 27th June 2017 (Series 76, QF4)

R2 had RESHINED, which isn't in Lexplorer but is in ODO under RESHINE. Susie mentioned it during filming but it was edited out.

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 21st June 2017 (Series 76, QF1)

I chickened TEAHOUSE as well as MORALISER. In different cirumstances I probably would have risked them both.

Still got 8 maxes though. James had some excellent spots (CATHOUSE in particular) that made the game more interesting as well.

Re: So, who will be the founding member of Countdown's "1000 CLUB"?

Now that my run's aired (spoilers follow to warn those who haven't seen the episodes), I thought I'd include some more stats and opinions on how likely 1000 is to happen. (SPOILERS FOLLOW) I ended up getting 915 - a good octototal, but obviously nowhere near 1000. Full stats are: Score - 915 Maxes -...

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 10 May 2017 (Series 76, Prelim 86)

I believe my exact words in the 1000 Club thread were "Is it possible for me... ...to score 1000+ when we go on the show? Technically yes, in the same way that it's technically possible for Reading to win this year's FA Cup." At this point I'd like to point out that Reading lost 4-0 to Man Utd in th...

Yes, we both got PROVEN. DC also had UNROPE.

Re: Spoilers for Monday 8th May 2017

I don't know of any way to check the date. I ran everything through Lexplorer immediately after filming, so if anything better comes up when I check the games as they air then it's probably a new word.

Spoilers for Monday 8th May 2017

A few beaters around today - AILETTE in r1, ARREARS in r2, MOBOCRAT in r12.

The new dictionary update also gives FUGISES in r11, but as I recorded this game back on February 21st (two days before the update), it wouldn't have been allowed then.

Re: Countdown in King's Lynn (Co:KL) - Saturday 27th May

I've talked myself into it again. Making an early birthday weekend of it, and I'll join in the parkrun too. See if I can go a bit faster this year.

Re: So, who will be the founding member of Countdown's "1000 CLUB"?

Read through this thread with interest, and seeing as I've been playing a lot of Mocktoruns recently, and I'm currently waiting on a recording date, I thought I'd include some data of my own to illustrate just how difficult/luck-based an octototal of 1000 actually is to score. Since the start of Nov...

Took another big chunk off my PB. First time I've finished in the top half of the field.

Speaking of sub-30, I managed a 29:00 today. PB by (effectively) over a minute.

Re: CO:parkrun Recaps

That explanation makes sense. I did notice that coming back down after the hairpin turn, my watch got confused with pacing, indicating a much slower pace than I was actually running. Didn't pay too much attention to the distance at that part, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was also confused about...

I'm in for this one, just paid up.

I'll be coming down on the Friday and making a weekend of it. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Re: Welcome! - Post here first

Finally got round to making an account here. I've been on apterous for a number of years, gone to one Co event (Leeds), with hopefully more coming up if I can get to them.
