Ahh poor Jodine- had high hopes but she did not quite live up to her debut + could tell she was a bit disappointed at the end. Nevertheless, one certainly better than some of the standard we saw at the end of the 78 prelims. But good to see a bit of a mix-up in the numbers selections today and a nice, quick spot from Lewis to win the game.

Not many people order urine at a restaurant, it seems.

Bad luck Jodine. But I thought that might happen. Well done Lewis. Innis are you two related?

I think you can all guess why I hate that conundrum

R6 Alt.: ((75*50)-100)/25

Sad to see Jodine go. Disappointed that she didn't become an octochamp. :(

Alternative for R3 if you want to use All the Numbers: (75 + 25 - 8 - 8 + 2) x 10
Alternative for R9 if you want to use All the Numbers: (5 - 3) x 6 x 10 + 8 - 7
Easier Alternative for R14: (50 - 7) x 10 - 25

Well said, and I so agree with Rachel as well in which this originally came from. When she debuted last week, I had high hopes for her, we haven't had a Female Octochamp in close to two years! Unfortunately, with her defeat, the drought continues... :(

XD...the Rule doesn't exist in some places, but in Chemistry, URINE is already a compound so the plural doesn't exist! You can have URINATES though...

I did R9 that way anyway, without trying to use all the numbers, lol.
For R14 I did (100 + 50/10 x 7) x 75/25
