Weekly summary: Episodes 66 to 70

The week started off with the chance for a rare feat: Outscoring David and Lily.  That was due to my find of RITENUTO in a letters round, but then I made a complete mess of a numbers round and the chance slipped through my fingers.  In the next two games I failed to solve three conundrums, which is a record I hope I will not equal again.  An overdoes of vowels kept word lengths down in the latter half of the week, but I was able to finish strongly for a change, including a maximal game on Friday.

Ian Campbell-Fraser lost his fourth game, and so Esther Perrins retained her eighth spot in the finals rankings.  James Parton will have a chance to trouble her on Monday, though.

Three full monties were on offer this week.  The first eluded everyone, the second was found by a contestant -- a rare case of a contestant finding a full monty and still losing the game -- but not me, and the third one I found.  There was one impossible numbers target on Friday, with Lily getting as close as possible.

Nothing much to say about this week on the maximum front, other than the pleasure of my first maximum game since we moved into episodes that I had neither seen nor read.
