Yeah, not quite as good today. I'd still say fairly decent on the letters, but in both games she could have improved on the numbers.

Foxtail was a nice spot, but her forte definitely lies in the letters. Everyone seems to have a bit of an off-game, so hopefully this was just a blip.

This admittedly wasn't an easy game -- max was only 117. FAZENDA in the FONDLE round seems to have been the only beater today, but there were a few nice alternatives including ADOPTEE and ERUVIM.

Well I managed to win against the telly today (mostly on the Maths for a change) after being soundly beaten yesterday
I thought Jodine might be a good bet for an Octo champ, but I fear the Maths may be her undoing if she meets a good all rounder

My way to 583, which I did with it on pause (lol) was (50 - 3) x (6 + 7) - 25 - 3
and to 189: (50 - (25 x 3 / 75)) x 4 - 7 and
75 x 3 - 25 - 7 - 4, which uses less numbers and doesn't need any brackets so it must be better!

Don't Facebook-stalk Jodine like I did, because you might find spoilers.

Haven't got confirmed filming dates yet so can't answer that really - probably sometime later this series though, or early series 80.

Just looked and it doesn't appear she put much on there, other than pretty much giving away she was on for more than one show...

Yeah this. Her letters are definitely above average - probably roughly that of a 1350-1400 apterite. Her numbers aren't as strong though - if someone came along who was able to nail them they might be able to pip her even if she gets a few letters rounds off them.
