NG 295

New game 295 is now available.


Round 1: C S I R S O I E R

My selection: CROSIERS


Round 2: S E C P O S B F U

I found the best option of FOCUSES a little after time.  Oh, well.

My selection: SCOPES
Best: FOCUSES


Round 3: Target 762 from 100 75 5 9 8 6

My selection: 762 = 9*75 + 100 - 8 - 5


Round 4: N T M N O A N G A

I was tempted by GOATMAN, but I'd checked that before (most recently in NG 248).

My selection: TANGO
Best: GOANNA


Round 5: R K A O S R P I E

SPARKIER was not quite tempting enough, which was fortunate -- it's not listed.

My selection: REPAIRS


Round 6: Target 183 from 25 100 5 2 8 1

My selection: 183 = (5 + 2)*25 + 8


Round 7: E T E N A T A S Y

My selection: NEATEST


Round 8: Target 699 from 50 75 25 8 6 10

My selection: 699 = 8*(75 + 10) + 25 - 6


Round 9: HICK SLANG

My selection: SHACKLING (2.0s)
