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.

Yes, that's right. The annual Apterous Masters are back... and no, I'm not Ben. Unfortunately, the original Master of Ceremonies has other projects taking up his time at the moment, and so he needed someone ... [Read more] [More miscellany]

Not too sure what we should do with this but there are many games on the GOTW archive where one of the players has had the game discounted for various reasons. This leaves the strange situation where ... [Read more] [More miscellany]

Brainstorm by Jack Worsley. Status: Unconfirmed.
I have an idea for a tournament but I'm not sure if it can realistically work, so I need some help. It would be based on the ITV quiz show “The Chase” but by playing apterous, rather than quizzing. ... [Read more] [More miscellany]

Last year I ran a tourney on apterous called Co:Apterous that was meant to simulate a co:event. I think it worked quite well, but the major problem with it is that it was a simulation of a one-day event, ... [Read more] [More miscellany]

Now we've got Mocktorun bedded in as a format, might it be a good idea to sellotape 8 assorted classic opponents together into a single game, starting with one against a reigning champion? It would keep ... [Read more] [More feature requests]
