NG 352

New game 352 is now available.


Round 1: R J W S O I E B E

My selection: BROWSE


Round 2: I R U A E N S N N

My selection: NANNIES
Best: ANEURINS


Round 3: Target 795 from 75 100 50 25 5 2

My selection: 796 = 2*5*75 + 50 - 100/25  [1 off]
Best: 795 = 25*50/2 + 75 + 100 - 5


Round 4: S A G U F T B O I

My selection: AGOUTIS


Round 5: S U G A P E R M H

My selection: HAMPERS


Round 6: Target 559 from 50 25 100 3 8 1

This target is unreachable, and one off is the best to be done.

My selection: 558 = 8*(100 - 25 + 1) - 50  [1 off]


Round 7: O A M D H I C A L

My selection: HALOID
Best: DOMICAL


Round 8: Target 426 from 25 8 8 1 5 5

My selection: 426 = (8 + 8 + 1)*25 + 5/5


Round 9: TINNED ROE

Perhaps easiest for customers of a certain ISP, but I found that actually hampered me as I was not sure if it was a real word or not.  Still, it was the best option I could see, and happily the correct one.

My selection: INTERNODE (15.7s)
