Enjoy the show.

Round 1: N M U O G W I G G

OT: GOUGING (7) MUGGING (7)

Round 2: S L E A D T E P I

OT: DEPILATES (10)

I’m pretty certain that it was Maureen that got DEPILATES, but not certain enough to commit it to record.

Round 3: N C E O D I S N Y

OT: SECONDI (7) SYNODIC (7)

Round 4: 50, 100, 8, 7, 6, 9. Target: 143.

OT: 143. 100+50-7 (10)

Round 5: S T O E M T O I G

OT: EGOTISM (7) EGOTIST (7) GOOIEST (7) MOTTOES (7)

Round 6: N I E G O R Y I Q

OT: ERYNGO (6) GROYNE (6) IGNORE (6) ORIGIN (6) REGION (6)

Round 7: E E G K U O R B E

OT: BROGUE (6) BURGEE (6) REBUKE (6) REEBOK (6)

Round 8: 75, 9, 3, 2, 6, 6. Target: 880.

OT: 880. (((75x6)-9)x2)-(6/3) (10)
Score: 23–42 (max 63)

In my (very sparse) notes from the time it states that “no one got numbers game points” – presumably it was just referring to this round – or did they both blob on 143??

Round 9: S E M M O C T U R

No one buzzes. The answer was COMMUTERS.
Score: 23–42 (max 73)

All words not in the COD7 have been excluded from this recap.
