Re: Ask Graeme?

Hi Graeme. I was wondering if you'd be able to find out which contestants on the show would have earned the most pencils? (i.e. words which are a max in letters rounds which had never been declared before on the show) I realise it wouldn't be meaningful to look at this for the early years of the sho...

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday October 15th 2014 (S71 P66)

I'd stuck around in the studio after my episode to watch the rest of the day's recordings, and this show was a joy to behold from the audience. Utter carnage, was pleased for Dan being able to produce a performance of this quality under the studio lights. Inamorato was a phenomenal spot. Felt a bit ...

Re: Spoilers For Monday October 13th 2014

Thanks Jack. Yes, perhaps I was being a bit self-critical. It was a great experience anyway, and I'd recommend giving it a go to anyone. The team were great and did their best to settle any nerves. I also wasn't expecting to meet so many apto-forumites in the studio! It was great to meet some of the...

Re: Spoilers For Monday October 13th 2014

Well, that was me. I normally play a bit better than that online, but it was genuinely consoling knowing that even if I'd played to my best I probably wouldn't have beaten Dan (I would've been disappointed to play like that and lose to a mediocre opponent). In terms of those two disallowed words, in...

Re: Spoilers for Tuesday July 15th 2014 (S71 P10)

PHONATE an alt 7 in R5, and MAESTRO another in R8. Shame to see Ian slightly off form today.
People say learning stems in an ineffective way of improving, but that was how I was able to spot the 9 in R12 (ASTEROID+V)

Re: Spoilers For Monday July 7th 2014

GODETIAS another available 8 in R8. Has the same target number appeared in successive numbers rounds before? I guess if the odds are ~1/900 it probably has...

Re: Spoilers for Tuesday July 1st 2014 (S71 P2)

Atomies also available in R10 as an anagram of atomise. After James retook the lead it looked like Sue would lose after starting so strongly, but fair play for coming back and getting that final numbers game. Apparently INTERLUDE and BANDOLIER both have a conundrum difficulty of 8/10, so not easy sp...

Will be filming on 20th August. Paul - I assume this means we'll be avoiding each other.

Re: Welcome! - Post here first

Hi folks - I'm John. I've been around on apterous since roughly the start of the year and will be on the next series of Countdown. I've been really impressed since I've been on apterous at how friendly and supportive this community is and will probably be fairly active on here over the next couple o...
