Some good words above.

1. FIANCE
2. MASONS
3. 699 = (6+8)*50 - (100-75)/25 OR (100-6)*8 - 50 - 75/25
4. COSTUME
5. HANKIE
6. 304 = (7*5 + 3)*8
7. x MODENAS
8. 939 = (4*25 + 5)*9 - 6
9. 65.0s - SHEEPFOLD

Yes, some excellent words. However... Senaka: There was only one N in round 2, so MANSIONS is not valid. Mike, MAISON is only listed as an adjective, so MAISONS is not allowed (I tried it also, if that's any consolation).

DAMNEST is very impressive use of the single-syllable rule. PINHOLE is an excellent find. And Sam, were you thinking of MEDINAS (funky cold or otherwise)? The Macquarie would have been unhelpful if so, as it only lists a proper sense of MEDINA.

My answers:

1. PANOCHE
2. [invalid -- MAISONS]
3. 699 = (8 + 6)*50 - (100 - 75)/25
4. OUTCOMES
5. APHELION
6. 304 = (7*5 + 3)*8
7. DONATES
8. 939 = (4*25 + 5)*9 - 6
9. SHEEPFOLD (5.1s)

Good wordwork from Geoff in particular.

Google says Modena is an Italian city and brand name.
Didn't think it was a medina variant, not sure why I thought it might be safe.
