FISHED and wondered about HORSIER
RADARS
(6+3+1)*50+4=504
SLACKER
PLOT and after time TOWEL
(75-25+4+2+1)*10=570 (2 off)
RECAST
(8+4)*(75+3)-(8-7)=935 (3 off)

HORSIER is good, Mike.

1. HORDES
2. BASTARD
3. 504 = ((50-6)*3-6)*4
4. CLINKERS
5. POLLUTE
6. 568 = ((75+1)*2-10)*4. Similar to the round 3 solve.
Better: (75-4)*(10-2)
7. CURTAINS/CERATINS. I think TRUANCIES is invalid (found later on).
8. 932 = (3*75 + 8)*4. Multiplying by 4 again!
9. CHINSTRAP - 7.7s

Well, HORSIER is good except for that round only having the one R in it. *grimaces*

Nice work to solve the conundum, Sam, and to find the full monty in round 7. It's not valid under the show's rules, but is acceptable under the revised rules I'm acting under.

Two full monties available today, doesn't happen too often.

1. fisher
2. radars
3. (4+6)x50+3+1=504
4. rankles
5. pullet
6. (10-2)x(75-4)=568
7. scantier
8. (8+7-3)x75+(8x4)=932
9. ...all I could get was pinchstar!

Good to see 2 full monties!
