Hi folks. I've been playing on apterous for a while, this is my second post ever on the forums. Now I've recorded on the show, I'm keen to enter any of the online tournaments that are going on, including variants. Where's the best place to look out for those? They seem to be scattered around a little. Anyway if there's one I haven't entered, someone give me a shout on apterous. Ta.

Welcome to the forum Ned. :D

People normally post tournaments in either apterous.org or events (apterous.org is more common I think). Tournaments you can sign up for at the moment include the 'Apterous Masters' (it would have to be a qualifier application) and AptoSos. New tourneys keep coming up from time to time, so keep a look out. :D

AptoSOS is closed for entries until next season, if we ever get there.

To paraphrase Mother Teresa, no one is quite as good, or quite as bad, at Countdown as they think they are.

Yes. So, betcha £90,000,000 that the next person on here is not called Ronald, Stuart or Alan.

if you're thomas, dont read the next bit.
WOO HOO! I AM SO GONNA WIN THIS BET!
i hope... if i dont win the bet, i dont have £90,000,000 to give thomas! well, anyway, as i said, i am so gonna win this bet! ...i think... i am optimistic (is that even how you spell optimistic?) ...ok ok. i give up... i am not doing the bet. i might do it for £2 but thats not exactly worth it cos if you lose, you have to give £2 but if you win, you only get £2! i cant win either way. i'm cancelling this bet. but thomas doesnt think so! please, people, do not "fix the size issue"!

Suppose so. Is the bet back on? £2 for you if the next person on here is called Ronald, Stuart or Alan, and £2 for me if not?

Huge wwe, darts and united fan (although today wudnt be the best day to say that) nun the less thats me summed up!
Hi Lee and welcome!

We are all nice here, we don't bite (at least, hardly any of us...and not often, don't worry!!), although some of us are sweary and I think you are sweary too. You swore. lol. Look, I'm a 10 year old girl; I would be rather weird if I was an adult because, even I have to admit, I am CRAZY. Even crazier than...well, everyone on c4c is crazy, but I'd rate myself the craziest; if anyone disagrees with me, YAY! And if anyone agrees with me, still YAY! You gotta learn that everyone on c4c is weird, crazy, but nice.
Here's a fact: online, with my friends and at home, I'm crazy and loud and stuff, but when I'm at school in lessons or somewhere where I hardly know anyone, I'm quiet and a bit shy. Quite hard to believe, I know. But that's how crazy and weird and strange and cuckoo and random and stuff I am. lol.
This is a great site and you can chat about loads of things, not even just Countdown, as my may have noticed already, but also there are 'Off-Topic' (where you can chat about more or less anything unrelated (is unrelated even a word? Sounds plausible...)) , 'Other game shows' and a lot more topics.
You can even do Recaps, where you kind of record the past games (and you can do recent recaps which are called Current Recaps - and there is a forum for those - or Historical Recaps which are games mostly back in the '90s - and there's also a forum for those. Do you know how to do recaps? If you don't, ask someone else; I'm rubbish at explaining. Ok, well, to be honest, my brother (Joseph, who's 12) almost always has to help me with recaps even though I've been doing recaps for about 1-2 months now. But I do, honestly, do most of the recaps myself, it's just that every time, I need to get my brother to check everything and help me if I don't know what to do - I'm always nervous if I submit it without him checking in case I made a mistake!

Hope you enjoy it on here, Lee, and happy posting!
Soph.

No. I mean that some of us re-read what we have written, consider it carefully and then edit it before clicking on the 'Submit' button - rather than posting a load of inconsequential nonsense.

Hello world.

Some of you are familiar from elsewhere. I am yet to participate in anything on-topic, but am interested in game shows, including the eponymous one, puzzles and games. Like most of you, I guess.

Hello Chris, I'm sure you'll fit in - most of us are game show addicts too.

Jason, I was watching a robot thing on TV this morning - not sure what it's called and it's quite boring but I couldn't be bothered to change channel - and there was someone on it called Jason Larsen - but I didn't see them because I was playing on my phone so I don't know if it looked like you - who had made a little robot. I don't think it was you...or was it? You probably would've told us if it was you, so I don't think it could've been you. Plus, it was filmed in England so you'd have had to fly all the way over here just for that...

Hello Countdowners! :)
I'm Kieran, 16, from Nottingham. Been watching Countdown all my life really. Keep thinking about applying for the show, then forget, then remember again, then don't get round to it. Happy days :D
I'm an avid Forest fan and love Jeff's Soccer Saturday malarkey (so sad he's leaing Countdown!) and I like my horseracing as well. Oh, and cricket. And ice hockey. And snooker. Okay, I like sport.
And that's about it. See you around, amigos :)

Anyone who mentions both Countdown and snooker (in a positive light) in an introduction is solid amigo material in my book :). Welcome, Kieran.
