NG 565

New game 565 is now available.


Round 1: I S R F M N A O T

I had FORMANTS speculatively written down, but was too dubious of its validity.  Oh, well.

My selection: RATIONS
Best: FORMANTS


Round 2: C I G T T E A U H

My selection: CAUGHT


Round 3: Target 103 from 2 7 4 3 9 10

My selection: 103 = (9 + 2)*10 - 7


Round 4: F S A A U T E X S

My selection: FEASTS


Round 5: N Z I D S E R A O

I spotted, but rightly avoided, the option of ANODIZERS.

My selection: ANEROIDS


Round 6: Target 877 from 25 3 4 7 9 4

My selection: 877 = 9*(25*4 - 3) + 4


Round 7: P N E E R L A D R

My selection: PEARLER
Best: PANDERER


Round 8: Target 708 from 25 75 6 8 3 1

My selection: 708 = (6 + 1)*(75 + 25) + 8


Round 9: SENILE CON

My selection: [N/A -- conundrum chosen explicitly]
Best: INSOLENCE
