A vowel instead of the final consonant would have given A for SECTIONAL :(

Rachel-beater for 2nd numbers, well within the time... still 1 away though.

(5-1)*9 = 36, +25 = 61
61 * (9+1) = 610

Yes, probably the most incredible nine I've ever seen get spotted by DC or a contestant on the show.

I had GLORIOUS and ended round early. It was only when Susie said "we have a 9" that I saw UROLOGIST. Oops.

Well done again, Kevin. Halfoctochamp status now belongs to you.

Was well chuffed with AMADOU in round 2, but my score took a beating with missing UROLOGIST in round 9. Having said that, even if I had 30 minutes, I still wouldn't have got it. :lol:

Also got APSIDES in round 7 and ENAMOURS & NEUROMAS in round 13. Almost the same letters as round 4 yesterday. Slightly surprising that Kevin missed SURNAME, when he got SURNAMED form that bunch yesterday.

Interesting that Rachel said she got 603 in the 2nd numbers, as the only way to get that with those numbers is 25 x 5 = 125, 125 + 9 = 134, 134 x 9 = 1,206, 1,206 / (1 + 1) = 603. (I almost thought she used the 1 three times.)

Not saying she didn't get it, but that's quite a way to go :!:

No idea why Ian decided to copy me. Unless he seems to cyberstalking me.

All I did was do an innocent comment about the 2nd numbers game.

Maybe someone should cybergag Ian and make him confess, because I've got no clue as to what's up with him. :? :?: :?

I don't understand this. Do you have some sort of scoring system where you lose 50 points for missing a nine?

Thought they'd pick up on the challenger's choice of "2 large 5 small please" but Rachel just repeated it and since she said it, she picked up 7 numbers. She soon realised though :P
