It was nice to see Laura make a return on the show after 13 years, commiserations to her but still, a wonderful game with POULETS and FUNDIES from her. Indeed, Countdown runs through your family!

Toby, if you're reading this, well done for solving for the conundrum! (Even I blanked out on this one...) No wonder why you said you were there :) We should look out for more McDonalds like you as Rachel mentioned :P

Yeah, nice job Toby today on the conundrum- was not the easiest, but commiserations to your Mum who did have some great words, some of which were new to me. It is the experience that counts and she fell victim to the luck of the draw and into Dave's path, who put on a solid performance today.

Thanks Tom! Yeah, she was a little disappointed she didn't get the teapot, but that is very true about the experience (she also beat me on a couple rounds as I didn't play very well in the audience). But imo, there were some very tough rounds today. Dave certainly is a formidable player for a non-Apterite.

I was there also, and remember that after Toby got the conundrum they tried to give it to someone else ( as Toby probably has enough Countdown mugs)
But the other person came up with a completely different word (decadonal I think) despite Toby having given the correct answer already lol
