NG 388

New game 388 is now available.


Round 1: M I R A C L S E O

My selection: MIRACLES


Round 2: N I A D P C B A G

My selection: PACING


Round 3: Target 412 from 100 25 9 3 6 9

My selection: 412 = (25*(100 - 9/9) - 3)/6


Round 4: R P S M U A T R A

My selection: TRUMPS
Best: RAMPARTS


Round 5: H L S O R E I E N

My selection: SHORELINE


Round 6: Target 502 from 100 75 8 10 5 1

My selection: 502 = 5*100 + 10 - 8


Round 7: L C O T N A S E D

It took me until the next morning before I thought of CELADONS for eight.  It was surprisingly difficult to beat seven on this mix.

My selection: LOCATES
Best: CELADONS


Round 8: Target 698 from 75 25 6 1 8 2

My selection: 698 = (6 + 1)*(75 + 25) - 2


Round 9: RAFT CHILI

I admit, I considered a somewhat less delicate choice of conundrum here.

My selection: CHAIRLIFT (2.8s)
