Re: Spoilers for Tuesday 6th November 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 93)

Really enjoyed playing and only a little bit frustrated not to have been out of sight come the conundrum, which while in the audience, my other half said he had solved every time. I would like to clarify, the he in question being my Kiwi opponent; my partner Jane in the audience was sat next to him...

Re: Spoilers for Tuesday 6th November 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 93)

Thanks folks. (25+75)*(6+4)=1000 will be written smearily on my headstone! Really enjoyed playing and only a little bit frustrated not to have been out of sight come the conundrum, which while in the audience, my other half said he had solved every time. Still, glad to have got a teapot and fulfille...

Re: Credits - Anagrammy Style

I had rather hoped @C4Countdown might have retweeted the link I put up on Twitter - after all, I did it for the benefit of the cast and crew.
I'll try again...

Re: Spoilers for Friday 2nd November 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 91)

Coughs and stammered were great, any more to look out for? I can't rightly remember. I think I was flagging a bit by then and I was perhaps a tiny bit disappointed there was so little reaction from NH to both of those (it wasn't just that any reaction was edited out, there just wasn't any) that unl...

Re: Spoilers for Friday 2nd November 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 91)

I remember seeing ORATORY immediately after declaring ROTARY and then seeing GYRATORS just as Colin said Susie had found an 8. Shame I didn't get my ton. That 450 numbers game is cringeworthy to watch back and would have meant 108... Did you catch my S-stammered today and my *coughs* COUGHS yesterda...

Re: Spoilers for Halloween 2018.

I haven't seen it yet - I'm on the way back from the Lakes. FOULINGS is a term both of us thought we knew from our days in chemical engineering (the crud that builds up in heat exchangers) as we discussed afterwards in the green room. It does seem like a slightly brutal feature of the game that ther...

Re: Spoilers for Tuesday 30th October 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 88)

Cheers folks. Can't believe I said Whatever when I made a mess of the first numbers round.

Anagrammy techniques and too much Scrabble really helped. Epistoma is brilliant.

Did you see my link in the General thread under Anagrammy credits..?

Credits - Anagrammy Style

As a thanks to all the crew who make Countdown happen, I got my friends on The Anagrammy Awards forum to help me create an alternative set of Credits. The graphics were put together for me by VTR NORTH, who made the show's current credits. The list I used was true at the time I transcribed it in lat...

Re: Watching Countdown overseas

Thanks all for spectacularly helpful and warm responses.

I'm so pleased I'll be able to send a link. I may plausibly require assistance locating it when it becomes available.

Excellent. Mum's the word (though as a nine-letter equivalent, I imagine MATRIARCH is preferred)

And thanks for the welcome. Yet another disastrously efficient way of procrastinating...

Re: Welcome! - Post here first

What Ho! Countdown enthusiasts. I recorded on 31st July and am on my countdown to Countdown to be aired 30 October. Since the filming of the series finished, SD has been on her one woman show The Secret Life of Words, so that was fun to see and I have been following RR on Twitter - she is very enthu...
