The first thing to say is that apterous is definitely not Countdown. It is not endorsed by Countdown, Channel 4 or anyone important at all. However, it is a game with rounds including numbers, letters and conundrums. This may sound familiar. You can play against your friends over the Internet, or other people's friends if you don't have any of your own. To play, just register and then log in. If you're having problems, head over to our FAQ and, if that doesn't work, please do email me and I'll do my best to help.

At the moment, the deepdown variant only has letters rounds. Here is a suggestion for conundrums. The scramble will be a valid 8, 9 or 10 letter word. This is not the solution though - you have to look ... [Read more] [More variant ideas]
