Are you allowed to attend if you are a silly kid that's over the age of 16?

Why don’t you like Brinsworth Zarte
It's too close to Rotherham, which brings back bad memories for me.

It's very personal, I'd rather not go into it.

Hi Zarte

Just 1 question

What is your favorite numbers selection ?

Mine is 1 Large but sometimes select 6 small or 4 large

I think it's a bit hurtful to my feelings to ask me something so trivial immediately afterwards. But as I'm a kind-hearted person I'll answer.

I like 4 large, as it gives me the least chance to see a 3 or a 7 somewhere on the board. I can just about tolerate the 7 before the 5 in 75, as I quite like the number 5. I don't like 3s and 7s. I won't even order 3, 7, 37 or 73 off a Chinese takeaway menu. Which is problematic as number 37 is my favourite at my local one :(

Sorry Zarte thank you for answering and also why did you declare AREOLA when you took part in 2013 it made we laugh though, you are such a kind human being

What if Zarte bribes the person who watches him so they don't tell you he's cheating? :(

Hi Guys

This will now be an online event held over a few weeks starting later this month.

It will be held here on c4countdown
1st off player 1 will text how many vowels and consonants they would like and I will reply to both contestants with them vowels and consonants the same with round 2 etc. I will then start a 30 second time which when Tim is up I will text ‘Answers Please’ In which you will both send your answers.The same applies for the numbers.

Ashton, there are a lot of events already, both online and in person. Take part in some of those, familiarise yourself with what they involve and how they work, ask those who organise them how they do it for advice and help (they're very helpful), and then maybe revisit this idea.
