No probs, Robin. It was a classic, you don't get many games with both contestants scoring 110+ :) I couldn't quite make out what was said at the end, did you say you saw the conundrum but thought it was spelt differently?

Was FRONDEUR available in one of the rounds?

Hi Jojo - I thought emphysema was spelt en-physema and it never occurred to me to try it with em-physema. That said, it was such a fantastic game and I was honoured to be a part of it and am so pleased for Ann. Seriously, I couldn't have lost to a nicer lady.

Ah righto, yeah those type of words are tricky buggers to spell correctly. Agreed nice lady, very courteous. :)

I think you have seen the dreaded phantom D - according to wiki ORNATURE is the 8 in the FORTUNE round.

Very good game you two, as have all the finals games been. Well done Ann on squeaking through by a point again! We will be cheering you on in the final.

Also, minor brag - me and Michelle got RHIZOIDAL!
