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 30 August 2017 (Series 77, Prelim 41)

"You can make 904 with the same ingredients..." That's kind of how the numbers game works, Rachel. Also, did anyone find it kind of strange that she used the 4 without showing the 6 - 2 step?

Alternate solution: (10 x 10 x 9) + 6 - 2

I took Rachel to mean she was using the 4 and the 1 the champ had made but in a different way. That would also explain why she used the 4 directly, although granted she showed how they made the 1 again.

Tbf it isn't the first time she has taken a shortcut for that sort of thing. Think she assumed since David had shown how to make 4 she decided to skip.

Also, this may just be me, and I'm surprised that I'm saying it, but is anyone else starting to get bored of people having long runs (and eventual octochampdom)? I don't have problem with it, but I would quite like a week or two of one or two time winners right now.
Definitely not Jamie McNeill or Schrodinger's Cat....

By the way, can you edit the topic title in this first post to say Wednesday? Thanks!
