Weekly summary: Episodes 261 to 265

I had adequate results this week, but -- except for Friday -- always ended up significantly behind David and Lily's combined score due to the conundrum.  The shortfalls were exacerbated by an invalid word on Tuesday, and two numbers rounds on Wednesday that I did not manage to solve.  On Thursday I had the good result of outdoing Lily in a numbers round; in fact, it would have been an optimal game if not for the conundrum.  On Friday I finally managed to get that tie I'd been trying for all week, which was a relief.

This week was pretty similar to last week, as far as results went: The champion was only able to win Thursday's game.  Rachel looked in decent form but was not able to defeat Anushan; it's been a while since anyone got even as far as four victories.  The limited leaderboard looks like this:

Martin Gabor56585244220
Judithe Hall625143156
Emily Hawker675329149
Rachel Furness355440129
Rebecca Skovron533689
Jodi-Ann Menzies492877
Shyam Subramaniam472572
Geoff Walker482371

There was only one full monty on offer the entire week, and that was sufficiently obscure that it was missed by everyone.  Lily was foiled by the numbers only once, with Thursday turning up a difficult target that was very nicely solved by Rachel.

Full Monties0
Missed Full Monties11
Tough Numbers11
Impossible Numbers0

My maximum counts for the main rounds were essentially the same as last week, but it was a tough week as far as conundrum-solving went.  I only managed to get Friday's one out within time, and mostly it wasn't even close.  I had an invalid word on Tuesday, which did come as a bit of a surprise; I hadn't realised I was taking a risk with OUTLIE.
