When I saw Andrew's way on about 29s, I thought I'd gone around the houses

((100+50)/25/2+75)*7

...now I feel slightly better.

Some top four-larging from Noel today. Getting Noel's method in R3 in 30 seconds is very impressive, and would have been even more so had there not been a couple of simpler methods.

I had R9 Noel's way as well and was slightly surprised by Rachel's hesitance at getting to 197, given that she's used the 203/197/298/302 stuff on the show before.

Noel's letters were solid too. I wasn't sure on either GUNLESS or OUTFEED.

I thought my 78*7 method on the first numbers was complicated and around the houses.........until Noel produced probably one of the best solutions I think I've ever seen.

Had his way on the 965 game though.

Some great spots on the letters too, I toyed with GUNLESS but chickened it, well risked on your part. OUTFEED was very good too.

I wonder whether Noel chose that method on purpose or whether it was genuinely the only method he spotted? I can imagine he maybe just went to crazy 4 large mode immediately and so never considered anything else, but I know on something like that the first thing I do is see if I can get the factorisation.

I saw 2x300 pretty quickly and just got stuck on that to be honest, couldnt look at anything else the rest of the time. Whilst my competitor thought i went 'round the houses' im pretty sure we both used all the numbers, so he can suck it.

GUNLESS and OUTFEED were both risks as well! The other guy had gunless written down if i remember correctly.
