Spoilers for Tuesday 14th May 2019 (Series 80, Prelim 80)

GEOTIC in R4
RURALITES in R5

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....
