MOUND
BOATER (wondered about BLOATER but sadly did not take the chance)
(5+2)*(75+2)+50/25=516
PARTED (then noticed PARTIED after time)
FUSED
(9+2)*75+50/25=827 (similar method to the above)
FILET then noticed the -AGE and FOLIAGE just after time
2*(100+10)=220 (1 off)
x Grrr... should have got this

A few anagrams I remembered seeing before, which always helps.

Mike, your answer is 25 too high in Round 3.

1. DECAGON/UNCAGED
2. BARONET
3. one off: 515 = (50*2 + 75/25)*5
4. PREDATION
5. DEFECTS
6. 827 = (9+2)*75 + 50/25
7. PILOTAGE
8. 221 = (50 + 10/2)*6 - 100 - 9
9. PRECIPICE - 1.5s

Mike: BLOATER is valid -- hopefully you'll know for next time! FOLIAGE is a nice spot; I missed it.

Sam: An excellent game (particularly PILOTAGE) -- well done!
