Loved Dave's reaction to ANTISERUM.

Great solve by Zarte in the first numbers.

Edit: REDPOINT a beater in R13.

"Pfff...how posh". I too burst out in laughter, imagine if someone on Apterous spots an unusual nine and the opponents reaction be like that... :lol:

Alternative for R6 if you want to use all the Numbers: (50 x 10) + (8 x 4) + 6 + 1

Zarte has beaten his old record in 2013! Now the question is can he survive to get the Octochamp status or will by some unlucky twist of fate end up like Philip? I really hope for the former, he has a lot of potential and he deserves it.

I'm starting to think there should be a special, hidden panel on the letters board for people who blatantly ask Rachel for "continents". And just once, she should reach into that panel and put up a tile with a map of Antarctica on it.

Dave was a card and a half, loved playing him.

And woohoo! Beating my last performance was my first goal. Next was to octo...
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Most of the Twitter comments I got today were asking me about his continenting!

Amazing that you (only) need a 118 average over the next 2 games for a new record :shock: :shock: :? :? :o :o

Since you've had 123 so far it seems more likely than not

:geek: :ugeek: :ugeek: :geek: :geek:

Exciting stuffffffff

Would have been funnier if Zarte had spotted AUTOTELIC in r2 and he'd reacted to that:P

Quick thought- is 39 the lowest score in a 15 rounder in which a player has declared a 9???....

Zarte needs to average 118.5 to get the record and 131 to get 1000...very interesting in that we might actually have a realistic chance of not just the record but also the 1000 club...

It was a pity that it wasn't realised that this episode would have been transmitted on International Women's Day, so there was no recognition of the occasion :roll:

I keep thinking that for COREA this year that as well as continent cards I have ready cards with things like Planck and Speed of Light on for when players ask for a "constant"...
