Well done Toby and congrtulations on your Teapot! Your mum must be proud of you!

I take back my word on Becky vs Jill's game on being the best game...this has now become the best game of the Series! (Sorry, the former drops to 2nd place on my list now!)

I was hoping you would win and it looked like a very close game all the way! And you finally did when you snatched the Counundrum successfully! Best of luck for Monday's Game since F1 is on tomorrow!

Commiserations to Jason the Professional Golfer, I hope your wrist injury doesn't affect your retirement though!

Yes, very good job Toby. Also Jason put in easily his best performance.

ROMANITES was allowed and is valid on Apterous, but is listed with a capital R in the dictionary - the free version at least.

Also, not that it made any difference as it's invalid anyway, but when Toby offered outlain, it would be the logical past participle of outlie, not outlay as Susie seemed to be suggesting, so I thought she might have looked up the wrong thing.

Cheers Ryan. She is very proud! :)
Jason was a very worthy opponent, and was extremely unlucky to lose on 104 with his best performance.

Thanks Gavin! Jason did do very very well.

Also, ROMANITE is listed under RUMANITE with a lower case R.

Absolute cracker of a game- was nowhere near on that conundrum. Think Jason has joined Ciaran McCarthy in the highest losing score category, nevertheless brilliant play by both. Shall look forward to seeing many more games!

Brilliant game today, really excellent by both - 10 maxes by Toby too if I counted right. PARTOOK in particular was excellent, didn't see that one :)
Best game of the series so far I think.

They all count, last second or not ;)
Looking forward to seeing more of your games (no doubt I'll be beaten on a few more rounds!)

Wow - great game :) :)

Highlight though has to be Toby's pre-game chat with Nick - reminded me of the Frost and Nixon interviews ;-)
