Spoilers For Monday September 8th 2014

Post by James Robinson » Sun Sep 07, 2014 11:51 pm

So, it's another week of Countdown, after the celebrations of the "6,000th Episode" on Friday, although we're down to just 3 shows this week, thanks to the horse racing again............. :( :cry:

Paul Bradley is our new champion, after winning Friday's show of celebration. I'm informed today's challenger is an Apterite who goes by the name of "Frank Jones" online, but has a different name in real life.

Janet Street-Porter is in DC today and tomorrow, before Jenny Eclair takes over on Wednesday.

Join Andy for the recap later. ;) :) :D
WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE!!!
UP THE MIGHTY TERRIERS!!! ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)

MADRILENE in R8
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Very impressive debut from Jamie, the joint highest debut of a true newbie. This is going to be a fun week, I can guarantee it, and especially with the inclusion of Jamie in the mix, is going to be some very high standard stuff.

Jamie writes with a very loud pen, possibly a felt tip. Also Nick should have gone to Susie with an obscure word like FACTOTUM for the teatime teaser!

COWERING for a leveller in the RECODING/CROWDING round

One man's obscure is another's very familiar, I guess.

There did seem like quite a lot was cut out of today's episode, can anyone enlighten us............ :?: :?: :? :?

That was a staggering start though, Jamie. SUPER IMPRESSIVE :!: :!: :!: ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)

FRAISES in round 2, OPAQUES/UNPOSED in round 7 and DISGRACE in round 12.

2nd Numbers Alt.: ((7 + 5) x 75) + (9 x 3) - 8 = 919

Fantastic debut by Jamie with a 12-max and some excellent spots, even though he chose wrong nine in round 1. ;)

Not much to add from me, just UNPOSED in round 7.

Next up in the challenger's chair is another apterite, Farhan Ahmed.

Another way for 1st numbers: 100-(4/4)x(9+1)-6 = 984. I really didn't see the simpler way :D
Alt 2nd numbers: (75+3)x(7+5)-9-8 = 919.
