Adam Gillard I think I'm going to start picking 2 large. Only 15 out of 158474 haven't yielded 7 points or more (not that 1 large is far behind).
Charlie Reams If you account for the difficulty of the games then 1 large is by far the best; see http://www.c4countdown.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3375&p=77009
Chris Butler Is there any chance of adding an extra column showing the likely hood of a 200 max & the average max in number attacks? (or do I have to file a 'ticket'?) Cheers
Chris Butler Actually i've just worked the chances of 200 max out (going off the figures listed here): (Exact/Total)^20: 6S:- 3%, 1L:- 64%, 2L:- 69%, 3L:- 34%, 4L:-15%
Chris Butler Can someone explain how the 'total' is worked out? In the case of 4L, I work out the number of different 'instances' to be 90000 not 127312 (10*10*900)???

Chris Butler Sorry make that 49500 even (there are 55 different combinations of the 2 small and 900 possible targets)
Adam Gillard The figures under 'Total' and every second column after that simply refer to the number of rounds that have been played that meet the criteria.
Charlie Reams 1) Yes. There's a "request feature" link on the front page.
Chris Butler Ahh okay thanks, I guess the maths would be albeit impossible to calculate theoretical percentages so I'll let it drop!
Charlie Reams For the standard game it's not that hard, see http://www.crosswordtools.com/numbers-game/faq.php#stats . But for some of the variants on here it would be basically impossible, there are vastly too many.
