Round 1 - Donate
Round 2 - Warmers
Round 3 - (5*6)-(4+3)=23, 23*(9+1)=230
Round 4 - Inmates
Round 5 - Furnace (Was tempted to try 'Underface')
Round 6 - (50+1)*(3+3)=306, 306+25=331
Round 7 - Lactating
Round 8 - (8+4)*(6*10)=720, 720+5=725 (2 away)
Round 9 - x (Well done on the solution Senaka)

TANNED
WARMER (rejected WARMERS Pete but now realise it could also be a noun)
(5*4+3)*(9+1)=230
x MANKIEST (was hoping this was a word)
x UNFREED and saw FURNACE after time
(3+3)*(50+1+4)=330 (1 off and good one Pete and Senaka)
LACTATING (everyone got this one)
(6*(8+4))*10+5=725 (2 off)
COROLLARY (8s)

Well done to everyone for getting LACTATING -- I missed it completely. I was beating myself up for not risking the valid TANTALIC on that round. Heh.

Mike: MANKIEST* works under the revised rules, and was my choice (or ATOMISE under the show's rules). Senaka: UNDERFACE is not in the Macquarie, unfortunately.
