Discuss anything that happened in recent games. This is the place to post any words you got that beat Dictionary Corner, or numbers games that evaded Rachel.

Spoilers for Wednesday 10 May 2017 (Series 76, Prelim 86)

Post by Johnny Canuck » Wed May 10, 2017 1:32 pm

Internet outage scuppered Round 4 for me. I see that both Stephen and Dan got 6 there; did they get PROVEN? And did DC get any of the alternatives (PROVUN, UNROPE, UNROVE)?

2nd Numbers Alt.: ((9 - 6) * 25 + 7) * 4 * 2
Otherwise known as "Will", "JC", or "that guy who's bad at The Mole".

Yes, we both got PROVEN. DC also had UNROPE.

Thanks! Fine performance from you yet again, by the way.

ATLASES was a beater in one of the rounds.

And well done again to Stephen, although the 1000 is slipping away. You'll have to apply again in 10 years if you don't make it.

The way it's going so far, he'd need to have got perfect scores in all of his games to get the average that would bring him to 1000. I blame horrendous picking by the opponents.

Aye, he's been unlucky to have a fair few bad selections and only one (relatively obscure) 9 thus far. Still on track to get 888, which is more than respectable.

I believe my exact words in the 1000 Club thread were "Is it possible for me... ...to score 1000+ when we go on the show? Technically yes, in the same way that it's technically possible for Reading to win this year's FA Cup."

At this point I'd like to point out that Reading lost 4-0 to Man Utd in the 3rd round.
