1. stilted
2. spore
3. 10x(50-75/25)+7=477
4. a gamble with 'fascia'
5. footmen
6. (4+5)x50-6=444
7. another gamble with 'depute'
8. 7x(100+10+6-5)=777 (2 off)
9. could only find 'dreamspan'

vague memory of the 'gambles' coming up before... And yes, congrats Geoff on your Full Monty yesterday!

FOOTMEN
(50-6)*(5*(1+1))+4=444
DEBUT

I think you're ok with both gambles Louise.

STILTED is an excellent find in round one, Louise, and FASCIA is also good. DEPUTE gets the nod also (it was my choice, in fact).

Nice work to find FOOTMEN, both of you.
