PTEROPIDS in R4. Knew there was a 9 in there because I remember trying droppiest when it came up in the chat on Apto, which then became my falsie for it, but did barely manage to get it at the last second. ;)

Another good game again with some great words and numbers solves from both! Congrats Dinos and commiserations to Brendan! Can't wait for tomorrow, will be an exciting game! Best of luck to both Elliott and Dinos! :D No beaters today but some extra words I liked: ALFISOL in R1, KNITWEAR in R7, APOMIC...

Re: Spoilers for 26th June 2019 (S80, SF1)

Incredible as ever Elliott and commisserations Maggie! Vwd both on the R3 solve and RAINBOWS in R4. I missed both of these. Annoyingly, I saw CAJEPUT after the time as Elliott said 7 and he would have just beaten me to POLITBURO. Just one beater with ACAUSE in R8. A few 7s in R13, but I like AMIRITE...

Very tense game! Extremely well played by both! I was really looking forward to this match and it definitely could have gone either way. Btw, extremely unlucky on the conundrum Fiona. Honestly, it's a completely new word on me! Congratulations to both of you! :D

PIGCOTES for a R12 beater.

Almost had a déjà vu moment if a final R came out in R1. Would have been very similar to the start of my 4th game. Rachel was even wearing the same dress in that game! :lol:

Great game today. Sad to see Sandra go. I really thought she would win 8 but Arran seems like a decent player too with ISOPTERAN and his R14 solve. He may be stopped by a certain someone later this week though ;)

DREAMBOAT as a beater in the MODERATE round (I hope). There were 2 E's and 1 A in the selection, unlucky. It's a good word nevertheless. Tim Vine is absolutely hilarious. :lol: It's gonna be a great week. :D URETERIC in R13. I missed today's episode. What did he do? He just had lots of great jokes....
