Weekly summary: Episodes 61 to 65

A couple of invalid answers blotted my copybook this week, but otherwise I was managing to stay reasonably close to David and Lily.  It was one of the tougher weeks that I can think of as far as the letters went, with several mixes proving to be surprisingly parsimonious despite what seemed like a reasonable selection of letters.

Me (solo)7470617463

Veronica Corrigan's run came to an end at the fifth game, but it was enough to push Aaron Tyrrell out of the finals rankings.

There were no chances at a full monty this week, but the numbers proved to have a bit of bite to them.  One target was genuinely unachievable (with Lily finding the best possible) and another was solvable but too difficult for Lily within time (and myself also).

A decent but unexceptional week again, dropping a few maxima in particular on Friday.  The lowlights were an invalid word on Friday and jumping in too quickly with the wrong answer on Wednesday's conundrum.  It was perhaps a little comforting to read the comments and find out that I was not the only one with that problem.
