Just as good a game now as it was in the studio :D
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Yeah, good game. Did Wesley have a risky 9 in the ETHNICIST round? Was it tinchiest?

Can't lie, I wanted Wes to win.
What a cracker of a semi final though, could have swung either way and was very enjoyable to watch. Wonder if Wes had the 9 and didn't risk it?

I was surprised Wes didn't consider CHITTIES risky. I mean, it's in, but CHITTIES?

Excellent game today. Moose's letters ability is superb. I still think his numbers will prevent him winning the series but the sheer consistency of his letters spots will often make up for the odd Apterousy word (such as MAROODIS today) he lacks and I think will be enough to beat Jeff in the semis. A strong performance from Wesley too, who I'd rate higher than his sixth seeding.

DUSTINGS not allowed? 'Yesterday we had a light dusting of snow. Last week we had several light dustings of snow.' I'd argue it's used as a noun a lot more than some of the obscure words that are allowed.

Waiter: Would you like a dusting of icing sugar on your sponge sir?
Customer: I'd like 2 dustings of icing sugar on my sponge please!
Waiter: Sorry sir, you can have One dusting of icing sugar on your sponge, followed by another dusting of icing sugar on your sponge.
