Geoff, the new game link is not there but replaced by another site called one more game.

Whoops! Thanks for catching that, Mike! Fixed now.

1. PASTRIES
2. x LUTHERAN. Unlikely, but I wasn't happy with a 6. LUTHERN turns out to be a word.
3. 520 = (50+2)*(9+1)
4. x REFACTION. These letters rang a bell as containing a 9, but it is FORNICATE.
5. x CHINUPS
6. two off: 564 = 8*75 - 10 - 9 - 9 - 8
7. WOODEN
8. 863 = (100-3)*9 - (75-5)/7
9. SHAMPOOED - 8.7s

PASTIER
LATHER
Sam's way
CREATION
CHUMPS
Sam's way (2 off) and after time 8*(75-10+8)-9-9=566
BOWED and DEBONE just after
9*100-5*7-3=862 (1 off)
SHAMPOOED (32s)

I knew about LUTHERN (and about LUTHERAN, for that matter) from past checking. The more findable seven was NEUTRAL. I wasn't close to seeing FORNICATE.

Mike: DEBONE is a bizarre omission from the Macquarie. Just as well you were slow to see it!

1. TRAIPSES
2. LUTHERN
3. 520 = (50 + 2)*(9 + 1)
4. FRACTION
5. SPINACH
6. 566 = 8*8*9 - 10
7. WOODEN
8. 863 = 5*(100 + 75) - 9 - 3
9. [N/A -- chosen, but it is SHAMPOOED as you both saw]
