I watched the morning repeat of this today and since no-one has started a spoiler thread, I think it would be a bit much to start one now. I got 81 playing along at home, equalling DC in every round, so I thought I might have maxed it. But it turns out I only Jossed* it.

*Verstappen joke (as in Max/Jos Verstappen). But from now on, to Jos a game is to potentially max a game before you check a solver.

You're talking about the achievement whereby you equal or better anything that's offered on the show in every round, right? I remember that Jos Verstappen was sometimes called "Jos the boss". "Bossing it" or "bossing the game" is quite descriptive of the achievement, as well as maintaining the Verstappen joke (sort of). So that's my suggestion.

Yep. Although I'm not sure whether it counts if Rachel hints that a numbers is possible without being able to get it herself. I think it probably should count.

Yeah, not bad. I think they are both acceptable variants actually.
