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.

Prune always picks the same selection as your last pick in the numbers, but if you pick random choice then (it seems) he copies the result of the random choice rather than picking random choice himself. ... [Read more] [More feature requests]

With all the tourney games on the go nowadays I find it quite annoying that if you challenge someone that is in the room and they don't respond to it, you then need logout the room to ensure it doesn't ... [Read more] [More miscellany]

Recently I came across a website which is basically the French equivalent to apterous, and while it doesn't have nearly as many features as apterous, one really cool one it does have is the ability to ... [Read more] [More feature requests]

I've played quite a few of these, and seen them become more popular lately: simply a 1 round game between two players. They are often played against Rex. It could be chosen under the "Miscellany" section ... [Read more] [More feature requests]

Variant idea by Ben Wilson. Status: Pending.
Request description: Of an 11 letter selection, two pairs of letters are fused together and must be used in that order (see Joindown above). So you still have 9 tiles, 7 singles and 2 doubles. In numbers ... [Read more] [More variant ideas]

Currently, you can hit 3, 4 or 5 to automatically pick that number of vowels in letters rounds. I like to pick 6 vowel selections in Hyper and Hypertouch, and it would be lovely to be able to do it with ... [Read more] [More feature requests]

When in a game, letters rounds pop up to the first page on screen above chat for example to ensure that the round is not missed by concentrating on something else. This is not the case with numbers which ... [Read more] [More feature requests]

It has been suggested elsewhere that the April 1st Bellodown duel should be excluded from the monthly duel standings. This is largely due to the fact that the format was incorrectly described. Whilst ... [Read more] [More miscellany]

Variant idea by Richard Brittain. Status: Unconfirmed.
So, you have a dot. You can put this dot into your words, and it works like this: Suppose I enter 'for.get' I would score for the word 'forget' plus 'for' and 'get', scoring 12 points in total. So, ... [Read more] [More variant ideas]

I've always thought the general rule with numbers maxes was if you scored the highest amount possible in a round it was classed as a max. This is fine by me, however, I was playing top dog earlier as ... [Read more] [More miscellany]
