SOAKAGE in Round 5. Poor Amy...the Numbers Rounds ultimately sealed her fate...despite getting close enough in R14 it wasn't enough to have a safe win. :(

Nevertheless I thought the standard was a helluva lot better than yesterday and Amy made a great comeback and was unlucky at the end because I thought she had sealed the deal with the numbers. Although not high scoring, was great to watch...

Great game. Was hoping Amy would make octochampdom but dunno if she was good enough on the numbers. I was against Amy
This is what I saw in the selections
1: dotages
2: etalons
3: ((10+4)*50)-9=691
4: lounger
5: Poles
6: ((8+3)*50)-(7/7)=549
7: rises
8: maestro
9: ((10+10)*50)-(8*2)=984
10: outearn
11: moaned
12: frame
13: pointier
14: (75+25)+(2*4)+3=111
111*8=888
15: considered blacklist put didn't buzz.
Won with a score of 72-62

Glad Amy beat me when I had outearn cause while it's in, Susie disallowed it in October. Also, is dotage valid for the current dictionary? Don't know if it changed at the start of the year

Can't think why dotage wouldn't be valid!
I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

It might be worth investing in an OED subscription....or even better, an apterous subscription :)
