1st numbers alternative: ((6 x 75) - (8 + 1)) x 2

Another alternative:

75 - 2 = 73
73 x (8+3+1) = 876
876 + 6 = 882

They had POLKAED in that round anyway.

Still, nice to know someone on the forum is clued-up on the subject of South African topography.

I had CLEATING in that round, although I think maybe it's not specified as a verb, just CLEATED as an adjective. I'm surprised they missed all the -ING words like ELATING.

If you cut a gandiseeg in half, do you get two gandiseegs or two halves of a gandiseeg?

I got distracted when the conundrum took three seconds to turn over.

Why couldn't the conundrum have 'revealed' like that when Jeffrey was on...

Yeah. Well done to Richard for getting the conundrum after the delay and holding on to (just) the title of Champion.

It should have been me when you basically accused me of being behind PUTSCHES in the homage thread.

I don't know, but you should be able to find out if you watch it on Channel 4 + 1 :).

Gill Ford.

I wonder if the delay with the Conundrum was connected with her reading it from a card?
