This is the thread for unashamed bragging about your apterous achievements. Abandon humility all ye who enter here.

Although this wasn't a 100% game, I spotted a 100% game - I got the conundrum a fraction of a second behind Nick (I pressed the first letter but then it locked) and the one letters round where I missed a max, I saw one of the 6s but didn't risk it. Enjoy.

Soooo close - 14/15 maximums and the 15th one my dad got the max and not me. Enjoy this battle of father vs son.

13 maxes is all I have been able to do but I hope to get back on apterous in the next few weeks and try to do better!

Thought I was on for not only a 100% game but also a massive score. Turned out I only got 13 maxes as I bottled the conundrum (I saw it but had never really heard of it) and didn't know the 8 in one letters round.

I didn't post this at the time, but I hold the 9-round high score by 10 clear points, including 8 maxes. Annoyingly the only missed max was a nine, albeit a very improbable one I've never heard of.

I've just got the highest score so far on apterous - I didn't play great - round 2 in particular was a particular embarrassment - and the score could have been even higher (a la Julian on the show) with a tough conundrum that I failed to spot but my dad did.

I just beat Paul Howe 3-1 in 5-second mode, which is pretty good considering his rating was double mine at the start. I'm declaring myself 5-second mode champion. Anyone want to challenge me to a 5-second mode best-of-5 championship match?

That's awesome mate, well done. The Letters Attack record is a bit weak if you want a new objective.

:cry: :cry: I'll have you next time, I was starting to get the hang of it in those last two games. Some of those numbers games were awesome though.

I don't know if I should pollute this thread with antibragging, but this game contains the shittiest six round run you're ever likely to see on apterous, it's pure panic distilled in recap form.

http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?game=919

Oh yeah and goatdown rocks! Looking forward to the first goatdown daily duel already.

Not really a message of brag but I nearly got a 100% game again - thought I was gonna get it. I had round 5's numbers game just clicked 50x and did a Karen --- I needed to do like 9+5-4 so that was game over for that (403x2). Maxed all the letters and I said I'd be annoyed if I got a max for my first ever time and it doesn't record as I mistyped so Joe made it hard for me and indeed I didn't get the round 14 numbers spot on so 1 max missed (but 2 on the record). I'm not sure what's worse - had he chose 1 large and I got it, I'd have been elated to have done a max game but so annoyed it didn't appear.

Further to the above, if anyone fancies a pop at Rexy there seems to be a bug where he plays shit at timed Goatdown. The less time per round, the shitter he is!

For example, 5 secs per round

http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?game=1548

10 secs per round

http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?game=1543

15 secs per round

http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?game=1545

30 secs per round

Used to come up on Corby's game all the time and I'd still miss it. The first time I spotted it there was the rather lovely CICERONI.

I sincerely apologise because I honestly though that you would've been able to get the 6 small numbers. After double checking, I have found out that the number puzzle had an overall difficulty of 73%, with only 6 possible solutions :oops:, sorry.

I stand by what I've said before - if you play as well in the studio as you do online, you'll be very unlucky not to be a series champion.

Another 14 max game. I bottled it in the very last letters round when I accidentally clicked 5 vowels then panicked as I couldn't beat 6 and my dad got the 8. Grrrrrrrr

I did this on Numbers Attack a few days ago, but was a bit embarrassed about posting it here, as pretty much all the games were piss-easy. The two that I only got 7 points on were very doable, but a big score looked on, so I played it safe so as not to wipe out on any rounds.

Anyway, I'm posting it now as I reckon it'll be beaten soon - Jono had a 187 the other day and a 200 looks inevitable in the near future.

Jono's quickest at the conundrum? I don't think so.

Also, yet again I bottled the perfect game - last letters round. I was almost home and dry with a numbers and conundrum to go.

Just played Conor for the first time in what was quite an epic game! http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?game=2430 Check out the maxness!

Note: I selected the 9 in round 3 by accident, as I didnt really think it was a word, so Conor would've really scored 144! My highest losing score yet!

I've been somewhat slack (well, a bit of an understatement) in checking my emails. :P Not sure about the texts though, but I ended up getting a new phone after losing my old one.

I got 128 out of 150 in a normal game today - saw demisters too slowly and didn't got for it, that would have been 138.
If you cut a gandiseeg in half, do you get two gandiseegs or two halves of a gandiseeg?

I'm glad somebody else is a bit scared! Never mind whether it's technically the highest score or whatever, that's definitely the best performance anyone's posted so far (that I've seen). BIRTHDATE and TEPIDARIA, never in a million years... (edit to say - has anyone ever got two double-darren 9s in a game before?)

Re Conor coming to COLin: uh-oh

Re Conor being "slack" with checking emails: you mean you didn't check them at all for 4-5 months? :)

So close - this time it was a numbers solution that let me down so I had to settle with 14/15 maxes. Can't believe I finally max the letters and then bottle a hard numbers game (only 2 solutions apparently)

Edit:

And another 14/15 max game - and yet again it was a numbers round that let me down - was a hard 6 small.

Why thank you. Reading your post in the spoiler forum, it appears you owe me a mars bar :)

The rounds were flatter than those in Paul's game, but: http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?game=3298

You offered a mars bar to whoever got a max today without specifically mentioning the show, so I was being facetious. But clearly not funny. I didn't watch today but I don't think the 8 you're referring to is that obscure. In fact it may be one of Jim Bentley's favourite words. And if anyone reads that as a spoiler, punch yourself in the face.
