Wish they'd start picking more vowels, mind...that last round was screaming for ATOMISED...
I was screaming for an I in R4 for SEALPOINT. But some are just like that. Left UNTRASHED in the UNTHREADS round so a good false anagram to remember.

Spoilers for 22nd January 2018

Very good play by Chris today, who is certainly octo-champ material, and the best player we've seen this year, I do doubt as to whether he will be unseated for a while. Terry was consistent enough on the letters, but Chris was on good form today. Admittedly, I lost a few points to him on 2 longer wo...

Why do you? I think if the sum was a simple 6S, then maybe people would not be moaning, but as it w...

On any other day, I'd be very happy with my scores, but missing CRAFTIEST and TRANSPIRE were bad points for me. Shame Mary didn't go any further, but Chris is a very good player and I am sure he will do well in the games to come.
My scores for today:
Me:137-55 (Mary)
Me:131-73 (Chris).
