Discuss anything that happened in recent games. This is the place to post any words you got that beat Dictionary Corner, or numbers games that evaded Rachel.

Spoilers for Wednesday 17th July 2019 (Series 81, Prelim 12)

FLAMBEAU to beat FUMBLED.

Quite a simple conundrum today -- just stick the A in the front of the scramble and you've got it. Admittedly, the word itself wasn't the easiest though.

OWARRI. I hadn't heard of that spelling before. There are many names/spelling variations - AWARI, WARI, OWARE, AWALE, MANCALA, BANTUMI just to name a few. There are also many variations of the game itself. It seems the distinction between a variation and a distinct game (played with the same basic equipment) isn't clear-cut.
