NG 462

New game 462 is now available.


Round 1: T I E O I S B S R

My selection: BOSSIER
Best: SORBITES


Round 2: K C I N E L A M G

I had MACKLING (MACKLE: "to blur, as from a double impression in printing") speculatively written down, but was not sure that MACKLE had a verb sense.  Oh, well.

My selection: LEAKING
Best: MACKLING


Round 3: Target 319 from 50 100 10 9 5 1

My selection: 319 = (5 + 1)*50 + 10 + 9


Round 4: O R N T W E S U H

My selection: SOUTHERN


Round 5: R A U T H D D L O

My selection: AUTHOR


Round 6: Target 926 from 4 9 3 3 8 6

After time I got to one off with 927 = (4 + (8 + 3)*9)*(6 + 3).  That turns out to be the best possible.

My selection: 922 = (3*3 + 8)*6*9 + 4  [4 off]
Best: 927 = (4 + (8 + 3)*9)*(6 + 3)


Round 7: F S O I L A S E C

A full monty lurks in this mix!

My selection: SOLACES
Best: FOCALISES


Round 8: Target 959 from 25 75 100 10 5 4

My selection: 959 = 10*100 - 75 + 25 + 5 + 4


Round 9: BAT PAELLA

My selection: PALATABLE (1.8s)
