I also bought the latest dictionary today. Well, that you can buy. That should help me get better at countdown! It's the 2012 edition. They said in the bookshop that that's the most up to date version that you can buy! I'm hoping that the online version won't be too much different. Although I couldn't find some words I had been looking for. Like monradite.

That's because MONRADITE was added well after 2012 and funnily enough dictionaries don't have an automatic update feature that magically reprints every page whenever there is new additions.

Thanks Tom. Was annoyed I could only see a three when Sarah and John got a 5 and a 6. But in the past I've beaten future finalists (not trying to brag)so I'm not getting too worked up about it!
