1. instore (seen in signs as one word, but not sure it's in the dictionary)
2. admits
3. 6x100+75+8/2=679
4. plotter
5. cubes
6. (10+6)x25+9-2=407
7. ration
8. 25x10+7+8=265
9. laundress (but it took 98.4s!)

LOITERS
TIMID
Louise's way
PLOTTER
CUBS then CUBES just after time
Louise's way
RATION
3*(50+25+8)+7+10=266 (1 off) and after time (8-3)*(50+10-7)=265
x UNRASSLED (the opposite of RASSLED)

I thought INSTORE would have been hyphenated, but the Macquarie smiles on you, Louise -- it lists INSTORE as a single word. ORIENTS still feels safer, though.

Mike: UNRASSLED is very inventive! *chuckles*

Oh, and the short-form writeups for the last few days are now available. Including the full monty from yesterday's game.

Cheers Geoff - I did think 'instore' was a big gamble too. Wish I'd seen 'teleport'!
