Phil's one of my favourite guests, but I'm calling bullshit on his claim that 1 in 3 people live to 100.

Well done Toby...you have beaten me flat in half the Numbers Round and your MAROUDIS declaration.

You do have to feel sorry for Nilesh in the Conundrum, just a single "R" cost him the 10 points, it's identical to what happened on 30 October 2017 if you can remember Tom Brodie incorrectly guessed DISSIPATER when the correct answer was DISSIPATE which was what Rob McCrudden got. Oh dear...

Alternative for R9 if you want to use all the Numbers: ((8 + 6) x 25) + (5 x 2) + 3

Or for people, like Go players. for whom 19x19 has a special meaning: (25-6)x((3x8)-5)+2

Excellent game again Toby - certainly producing the good words! :)
6 games...6 centuries!

I did get 943 in r14 (just) in time: ((8+6)*8-10)*9+25.

Will live to 100. They don't right now but in the future it's thought it will be true.

Yeah, definitely. His numbers held him back a little bit, but they weren't the easiest numbers games.

Toby do you have autism? If you do I'll be rooting for you to win the final. But I don't wanna know anything about the finals.

Don't you think that's a bit of a personal question to ask?

Sure I have autism as well. That's why I was asking. Cause I want an autistic series champion.
