Re: Tuesday 8 June 2021 (Series 83, Preliminary 112)

On the wiki it says: NOTE: Despite having 732 points to Louis Ross's 738, Adam Latchford was seeded as #3 . This is probably as a result of Latchford's tie-break points from his first game being included in his overall total, which would bring his total to 742. This therefore places him above Ross ...

An interesting game there- and one of good quality. Thought Tom could have ended up an octochamp judging by the way he started, but James did have a good comeback. Wonder if he broke some records margin-wise?, as he was 20 behind at one point, yet won by over 30 pts.

Re: Veganuary

Never been vegan, but have been veggie since I was about 10/11. I think in the current climate, with the options available, I could do Veganuary given that there seems to be more choice nowadays, though I'm slightly hesitant to try vegan cheese and milk alternatives though.

Well done James- a convincing octorun with a great total! The boy gone good. Does James break the record for most different guests in an Octorun (4?) and equal most presenters (2) But why did Rory Bremner do just one day? Is that a record? He recorded the Christmas specials before this one.

I would guess so!
Wiki's down but I feel like Jack Worsley might have had 4 as well
He had 3, looking at the wiki.

Definitely changed - I had 5 C's in one game.
Believe there's been a game fairly recently where 2 W's have appeared, too.

This is the letters distribution circa 2009ish. I think it's changed slightly since.
Great stuff- thanks for that.
