3rd Numbers Reducing the Number of Numbers Alt.: (50 - 1) * (9 + 3 + 2)
There are three erors in this semtence.

A comfortable win for James today, with some solid play, particularly in the first half of the match. Did like Ian though as he came across well, however I do doubt as to whether the "Rachel Regular" will stick. :)
My scores for today:
Me: 111-76 (James)
Me: 111-33 (Ian).

Same idea, but did 9 - 3 + 6 + 2 for the 14. I didn't want to reduce the number of numbers! Actually that's a lie, I didn't see your way!

I had pompier - as in more pompy - I'm a Pompey supporter so I can, ha ha :-)
Doesn't matter what it means or how I pronounce it, lol.

VELAMINA available as a beater in the round before origin of words.

Thanks to Chris Davies for teaching me that one!

I thought I had FACTORIAL in round 4 or 5 but as neither Susie, Rachel nor anyone on here has mentioned it I assume I must have got it wrong?
I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

Sorry, no banana -- the As and Ts didn't match up. I actually did notice it was almost there, though!

Ah cheers. I thought it must have been wrong. I can see now that if Ricotta was there then Factorial couldn't have been!
