Another Kountdown challenge. 4 letters rounds of 3 vowels, 4 of 4 vowels, and 3 of 5 vowels. As determined by random.org, one 4 large numbers, one 2 large numbers, and one 6 small numbers, and conundrum made by me. According to Kountdown, maximum score is 120, of course I'm not sure if every max that Kountdown has is accurate, but we'll see.

I just randomly picked some numbers for a number game, and turned out with a single solution puzzle. See if you guys can see it.

3, 6, 9, 2, 5, 1. Target = 623

Have fun :)

Could only get 624 in 30 seconds. Took me about two or three minutes to see (6*5*3-1)*(9-2)

I couldn't get on earlier. Charlie did post a note yesterday saying that the site would be down for a bit from Thursday onwards, maybe that event happened earlier than expected.

I got into the home page for a while, but couldn't load the applet. Now I can't get into the site at all, since about 10pm.

I got into the site this morning (didn't try to play) but can't any more. Some people must have played at some point today though because there were duel positions for the day.

Works absolutely fine for me, and quite a few other people.
