Does anyone know off the top of their head, what Shanes overall score is so far?

Shame George didn't settle in until about half-way through the game, he seemed to be pretty good. He could well have won if it weren't for a couple of blanks, which I'm guessing were nerves.

COHERER as a beater in round 1, MAESTROS and MESOSAUR in round 9 (DC had MESOSAUR the other day and they missed it today) and then 467 a couple of ways in round 14, the simplest being:

(75+6)x7-100

Good game today and I think George looked slightly annoyed to have come so close and lost.

DC didn't miss DOMAINES, you clearly missed watching the show.

Haha, just finished watching the show and came here to post exactly the same thing - probably for different reasons from yours, though.

He's only 17 for goodness' sake. Wait until he's graduated and become a maths teacher and gets invited back onto the show and becomes a record-breaking octochamp in five years' time. Then I'll want to have sex with him.

Haha.

Er, back to my lookalikes thing. If Steven Briers is Sid from Skins, surely George could be his cast mate playing Tony Stonem?

Damn I got MESOSAUR (MASSEUR + O) and felt really clever until I visited this thread! I missed CHEERIO though which is like my favourite sign off :(

Well CHOIR is in the OED as a verb, so I reckoned CHOIRED would be allowed, in the same way that BUM is in the dictionary, so you could have BUMMED.

He could well have bummed, but unless you have any evidence, that's slander.

I'm not sure which OED you're referring to here, but it's not the one used on the programme.

It was the online complete OED, which I know is not the one used in the programme; but as I didn't think it was a contentious word, I didn't double-check with Lexplorer. My mistake, as I now know.
