Re: New Episodes of 8/10 Cats Does Countdown

Their CD ability seems decent, but I've always found the show too slow-paced. A few more rounds would make the comedy feel less forced.

Re: Letter Shuffling Algorithms

Apto feels like a very similar distribution when compared to the show. Perhaps not on a Mocktorun, but on discreet games, yeah

Re: Ratio of letters to numbers

I enjoy the Old 15, having 4 letters games before a numbers, so a compromise format would be to have

Numbers on 5,8,11,14
A numbers on game 3 has always felt too soon

ZIGGY (ZoomDown's Ingenious Generating Gizmo Yoke) could get a run out tonight if Apto remains down.
Without Ziggy, I'd be stressing right now.

Re: Who are Countdown's unluckiest losers?

Well, in that case, I'm happy to make your list!

Corrina must figure too, as she did all she was asked to do, won 8 games, 700 points, didn't get to show her stuff in the finals.
That's unlucky

Re: Who are Countdown's unluckiest losers?

From one point of view, I could be considered unlucky perhaps, but from another I've had a great experience that I wouldn't change at all, so sometimes you just gotta run with the hand you're dealt.

I'm on the fence with the name. Yes, it was the best of a bad bunch so we went for it, however, I'm a fan of The Downcast.
