Weekly Summary: Episodes 436 to 440

Regression to the mean definitely kicked in this week, or maybe it was the deleterious effects of work.  It sill included some good results, though, and prior to last week I would have been very happy with it.  The high point was managing to outscore the David and Lily combination on Monday -- it is a very rare occurrence, as you might expect.

Simon managed to win his fourth game, although Jean took him all the way to the conundrum.  He went on to successfully retire and moved into second position on the leader board.  The week ended with Rob Fischer starting his run; we'll see next week if he can keep up those winning ways.

There were some tricky number mixes this week, but only one of them eluded Lily's eagle eye.  On the letter front there was only one full monty on offer, but it was a doozy.  A great spot from Rob in his first game!

Full Monties11
Missed Full Monties

Tough Numbers11
Impossible Numbers0

The maximums don't really tell the full story here, but the overall tenor of things is correct.  Three decent games to start, and then a rather sad drop towards the end.  Two of the conundrums proved beyond me, but solving three was still above my average.

Maximums: L43321
