Octochamp Conundrum Difficulty (The Unauthorized Sequel)

Post by Johnny Canuck » Thu Sep 26, 2013 3:11 am

This idea is blatantly stolen from here. Apologies to its original author, who may or may not still be an active member here. But I liked the idea. You're welcome to send me a cease and desist order.

Some years ago, there was a poll on here relating to the difficulty of Series 59/60/61 octochamps' conundrums, and some enlightening conversation ensued. With so many octos having appeared recently, I figured it was high time to do this again.

Of the conundrum sets for the ten most recent octochamps, as listed below, which did (or would) you consider to be the easiest to get all 8 of? The hardest to get all 8 of? How many of our viewers got 8/8 on these at home? Out of all of these conundrums, which did you consider the most rubbish? If Graeme is around, are there any stats he could do on these?

Enlighten us with your conundrum difficulty opinions, all.

Octochamp Conundrum Sets

David Barnard: WITHSTOOD ACCOSTING HEARTBEAT RECEIVING RESERVOIR COMPACTLY GOLDSMITH NEGLECTED

None of these can really be described as easy, on the whole they definitely seem harder than the ones in the old thread. Very hard to choose one, I ended up picking Heather's even though it included the pretty nasty GALLSTONE.

It would be interesting if Charlie or Raccoon could perform their stats magic again here, and perhaps compare the two sets on the whole.

I think the scramble can have an effect on the difficulty. Can you include those as well?

For the record, in order of appearance:

Paul James: IVYFRINGE, BRANDSWIT, FUJIEDITS, CATSGOAPE, SILLYFEET, COMEAGAIN, SPENDARAP, SOMETROUT
Chris Marshall: LEMURSBED, SMOOTHALE, PAPALAIRS, EPICDRAMA, PUPWARDEN, BEATLATEX, MUMSAYING, MOONYSTAR
Liam Shaw: COILTRIOS, DENIMCLUB, ITSBETTER, INSALATAS, ICETARGET, DOGIETURN, ERASEDHER, AUGMENTID
Tia Corkish: ROADVENUE, OFFERTORN, IRINGTHEM, MEBITDUST, ACEDONGLE, CRUSHAHIP, NEEDSLARD, PHOTOFEAR
Rose Boyle: ICEINVENT, TOTUESDAY, DEADVITAL, GREYNOTUS, ARMYEXPEL, TEACOFFII, USEPROMPT, EVILREIGN
