CONSIDER
HAGGLE
(6+7)*25+1=326 (3 different methods today)
MOUNTED (Grrr...)
FOOTER
Senaka and Pete's way
TROOPS
(5+4)*(75+1)+4=688 (3 off)
BROWNNESS? (51s)

Not far from Series #2 repeats on TV, unless SBS misplaced them. Why else the third screening of Series #1?

1. CONSIDER/DERISION
2. HAGGLE
3. 326 = 7*50 - 25 + 1
4. AMOUNTED
5. FOOTER
6. 266 = (25+1)*10 + 5 + 1
7. PROVOST. Wasn't sure about this, may have gone with ADOPTS.
8. 691 = (50-4)*75/5 + 1
9. BROWNNESS - 2.1s

Nice to hear from you again, Sam. And yes, I hope we'll get to see series 2!

Mike: With respect to missing AMOUNTED, on the plus side it should not have been allowed on the show since AMOUNT is only listed as a verb as part of the phrase AMOUNT TO. My revised rules allow it, however. (The safe eights that I found were EUDAEMON and NEMATODE.)

Mike Backhouse said...

Geoff, you really raise the bar with those safe eights you found. And thanks for the feedback on AMOUNTED. And love that solution to 651 Sam (and Senaka and Pete).

691 I meant!
