Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 18th October 2017 (Series 77, Prelim 76)

Thanks for clearing that, something that I had not noticed before, makes sense now. I don't know exactly how far away the board is from the contestants table, just looked very far away.

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 18th October 2017 (Series 77, Prelim 76)

Why were both players gazing across the studio when the conundrum was on? That game puts Alex into No.8 seed, and knocks Nikki out of the top 8, but think there may be an Apterite coming up who might knock him out of the top 8. Only just realised that James was a former contestant in 2000, in which ...

Possibly done for Nick's benefit. On the other hand, nearly went for PULLIES, so was surprised that it was invalid.

Spoilers for Monday 16th October 2017.

Good comeback today from Alex, especially due to the fact that he got a very solid 96 points. Additionally, Jo started off with some potential, but nerves got the better of her in the end. Beginning to like Alex, comes across as a nice chap (but I never disliked him in the first place, just I hadn't...

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday, 11th October 2017

I use Lexplorer, but you can only use it if you are a member on the site "Apterous". Alternatively,http://incoherency.co.uk/countdown/ is a quick one which I may use in the break but doesn't have the full dictionary, so you may type the word in and it won't come up on there, but could actually be in...

I didn't really see him as an octochamp for sure, but I think that he still gave it a good shot, particularly game one:)

Re: Spoilers for Thursday 12th October 2017 (Series 77, Prelim 72)

Didn't see today's show, but a very low scoring game altogether. Personally I think Owen Taaffe was quite unlucky to lose as it was really disallowed words which cost him a win, if it wasn't for that then I would imagine he would still be playing presently as the standard hasn't been very high if I'...

Re: Welcome! - Post here first

Hi all, I'm Tom, have watched the show ever since being a youngster and am currently in application process. I do play on Apterous, but under a pseudonym and haven't been on for too long but look forward to developing my skill and hopefully getting on the show. Cheers!

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday, 11th October 2017

Had Unitary in R12
R3 Numbers Alternative: ((9x7)-2)x 10 +(5+3)
R6 Numbers Alternative: (75 x 4) - 50 + (6x2)-1.
Think that game had the lowest combined score this series so far.
The scores for me went:
Me:116-32 Lawrie
Me:116-35 Bryony
