Special Spoilers For Friday April 10th 2015

Post by James Robinson » Thu Apr 09, 2015 7:49 pm

So, Countdown has decided to sneak in yet another 6am special on Friday morning, but this is something that we have been waiting for a while, so it being on at 6am will do, since it is now on :!: :!:

It's a law and order special, and our very own PC Matt Croy from Series 65 takes on Series 66's prison officer, Craig Lingard.

Here are some stats to refresh you...........

Statistics Corner:

Firstly, Series 65 No.10 Seed Matt Croy - 6 Games, 5 Wins, 538 Points. (Average: 89.67)
Highest Score: 100 vs. Mark Worsfold (3rd Game)
Lowest Score: 71 vs. Kevan Nijjar (5th Game)
9's Achieved: 0/1
Total Points/Max/%: 538/716 (75%)
Letters Points/Max/%: 413/482 (86%)
Numbers Points/Max/%: 115/174 (66%)
Conundrum Points/Max/%: 10/60 (17%)

Secondly, Series 66 No.14 Seed Craig Lingard - 4 Games, 3 Wins, 288 Points. (Average: 72)
Highest Score: 92 vs. Luke Cottis (3rd Game)
Lowest Score: 39 vs. George Hills (4th Game)
9's Achieved: 0/0
Total Points/Max/%: 288/470 (61%)
Letters Points/Max/%: 197/310 (64%)
Numbers Points/Max/%: 81/120 (68%)
Conundrum Points/Max/%: 10/40 (25%)

A bit of magic from Paul Zenon in DC should be great hopefully. 8-)

And with Matt Croy playing, who else could recap this other than Tracey Mills, and you can join her tomorrow. ;) :) :D
WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE!!!
UP THE MIGHTY TERRIERS!!! ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)

EBONITE in round 1, VESICATE in round 3.

1st Numbers Alt.: (7 x 100) + ((75 + 4) x (6 / 3)) = 858

Well weird seeing a show with only 3 numbers rounds again............ :roll: :P

Espies as an alternative beater in one of the rounds

Well done Matt on making a nice score and raising a good amount of money for a very worthy cause. Sorry for the loss of your colleagues

Good to see this game at last. It was recorded in 2012, just before the 30BC if I recall correctly. Does that make it the longest gap between recording and first broadcast for any Countdown episode?

(6*9+4)*(10+6) was a better way to 928 than Rachel's method. Also, I think the FORMATES teaser should probably have had an explanation. Not everyone knows anything about chemistry! I don't think Nick understood it.

Indeed! Wouldn't want to go back to it personally.
Another way for 858 was (7 + 4) x (75 + 3)
and I have now finally caught up!!
