Re: Who Will Win Series 68? (Spoilers of Recent Events Inclu

Well my vote goes to Andy. The reason being, although I expect it to be close and yes Giles did score better overall, I felt Andy had a slightly tougher path to the Quarter Finals and overcame better opposition, hence his lower scores. ... the combined score of (Andy's) opponents in the 8 prelimina...

Re: Spoilers for Tuesday April 16th 2013 (Series 68 Prelim 2

It's gonna make for a heck of a final between him and Andy. That is of course assuming there are no more octo skeletons in the closet. Dangerous comment :P Objectively looking at how the series is panning out, it is the most likely final at the moment (1 v 2 seed), but we really can't assume anythi...

Well done Andy on a great run. :) I was in the audience for 3 of your games, (25th, 26th and 27th) and it was great to watch. Just a pity one or two gremlins put a spanner in the works :roll: I'll just miss the finals as I've booked tickets for the 13th May, not knowing when the finals would be. Sti...

Re: Spoilers for Friday March 22nd 2013 (Series 68 Prelim 11

I'm really not sure it'll make much difference, maybe a tad more watchable, for some? Some won't even notice! You'll notice if you ever go to be in the audience. I was there for the first 3 shows, starting with tomorrow's. I never knew sitting doing nothing for 4 hours could be such hard work, alth...

Re: Ask Graeme?

Now here's one to create a debate. :lol: A numbers game replacing a letters game, which of course means a lot of the time, 10 points. This, as opposed to whatever you might get with the letters. Now considering MOST of the time you wouldn't get a nine letter word, you could say on that basis the sco...

Re: 30BC Grand Final Spoilers For Friday March 1st 2013

Theoretically being the operative word. The truth was, once Conor got 18 ahead there was no way back for even the greatest challenger, which Jack was of course.

Re: Monday 11th March 2013 (Series 68, Prelim 6)

I'm guessing it's happened a lot more in the past but because it all gets a bit awkward, they've had to re-shoot with the person offering a shorter word or something. Might be wrong, but didn't it just rely on trust? I certainly don't remember thinking I had to say I hadn't written my word down (or...

First, I'd like to add my own thanks to Damian and the rest of the team for putting on this championship, and for selecting me as one of the 41 to take part from all the contestants they could have chosen from the last 30 years. I'll say more when it's not spoilerific to do so. It would be interest...

Re: 10 ways to improve Countdown Viewing Figures

I agree, the 'sorry to disappoint you but it's Countdown' remark was below the belt. What would have been wrong with putting that rubbish 'Face The Clock' on at 2.40 and keeping Countdown at 3.10? If you keep changing the time of any show it's asking for trouble. Countdown was doing very nicely at 4...

Topic says it all, I need a new challenge, I'm gonna get good on apterous and then beg for another go at Countdown, it's been nearly 10 years since I offered lots of fake words and I need a distraction from the monotomy of poker. Apterous could be what I'm looking for. Plus I'm enjoying the 30th an...

Hi everyone My name is Anthony Endsor. I was a contestant in series 53 back in 2005. Some of you will already know me as I used to post quite regularly on countdown forums about that time.
