Countdown in Brinsworth 2019

Hi I am Ashton Hancock and I will be hosting the 1st ever Countdown in Brinsworth.

It will be held at ‘The Centre’ in Brinsworth some time in August.

You must be 16 to participate (although I am not but we don’t want silly kids)

If you wish to participate please reply.

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

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 :(

And Zarte can play on Face time as long as he is watched by someone that can confirm that he is not cheating.

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.
