Weekly summary: Episodes 36 to 40

David Jones continued to be a strong competitor, and in particular maintained his good form on the conundrums, twice beating me to the solutions.  Things picked up again toward the end of the week where my conundrum speed was back to decent territory.  The highlight of the week was Tuesday's game, where my solo total was ahead of David and Lily's combined effort, thanks to a numbers round.

Me (solo)7583656870

David Jones successfully retired, taking a well-deserved third place on the leader board.  There was not enough time for any further movement there, but next week may well shake things up a little on that front.

This week turned up a full monty, found by a contestant.  It was a much more interesting week with the numbers than last week, as evidenced by Lily being unable to solve three of the numbers games within regulation time.

Impossible Numbers

Thursday's maximum count was rather bad; it was the first time since I've started tracking the maxima that I've failed to find any maximal words.  Some of that was due to obscurity, but two of them I should probably have found.  Aside from that, it was reasonable pickings throughout.

Maximums: L33404
