Weekly summary: Episodes 51 to 55

I was much more consistent this week, although there's still substantial variation due to full monties and the conundrum.  I did miss a few words I should have found, but was nowhere near the lowlights of the last couple of weeks.  I also found three words longer than David managed (within time), and one numbers solution that eluded Lily, so there were some definite positive notes.

Me (solo)6482758574

Liam Bastick successfully retired and takes a solid fourth place.  The leader board is looking very crowded with six-gamers, and even Kashi Ross's position is a bit tenuous at this point.

David found the full monty on Monday and Thursday, but Tuesday's one eluded him; I was pleased to find all three of them this week.  Two numbers rounds proved troublesome to Lily, one of which I managed to solve.  A genuinely impossible target livened things up on Tuesday, and it has been a moderately interesting week.

A few missed maxima that I should have found, but overall a better performance (or perhaps friendlier rounds) than the last couple of weeks.
