UNTESTED in R2...I chickened out on VROOMED in R1...

Had Glen got ORDAINERS in R13 and solved 530 in R14, he would have beaten John 76 - 72 but sadly that was not to be (Note that obtaining the former only would still have been enough to beat him, the score would have been 73 - 72! It hurts when you know you could've gotten it and subsequently win the game...

Alternative for R14: (75 - (8 + 8+ 6)) x 10

I didn't notice it in previous games but the champion guy was asking for letters like they were helpings of dinner. Instead of asking for a second one etc. he was asking for seconds and thirds.

I noticed this too!
Also asking for seconds when it was his fifth...

Anyone laugh at the unintentional harshness by Nick at the end..."Well played Glen, but not today" :)

several alts there, for instance:

6x75 + 8x10
6x8x10 + 50

Same- I dismissed him when he said 7, and me and my mum both sat smugly in our chairs because we thought we would gain extra points against him :)

You are all bad people.When he said seven, I thought he might have had "tomatos", but I didn't think it was the most probable outcome. I was expecting to lose the round to him.

He would have been in very good company looking at the list of names that have done similar on Apterous before https://www.apterous.org/lexplorer.php?word=tomatos :) As I said, was a great spot and will be interesting to see how his progress continues!

Not that far if every round is a numbers round.
(just saying!)
In the first TTT Nick seemed to be making the point that not all hygienists are female. Wonder why the tease-setter thinks they are......!

I've never come across one that wasn't!
I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

Nor me tbh! It was still pretty assumptive of the tease-setter though, which Nick picked up on too!
