Thomas Carey Cheers for putting this round much earlier this time!

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck Finally, all those gimmicky *1 and +(4-4) steps I like to attach to my solutions may pay off...

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier yw Thomas, should be easier against Nude. Agreed, Johnny, ul on Nude nicking a round there.

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck Ah ta.

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson It might be worth mentioning (because it is not explicitly stated anywhere) that a dead end solution is permitted -so long as the dead end part is completed *before* you finish the solve.

(e.g. 1,2,3,4,5,50, target 1000. 2x3=6, (4x5x50)+1 would count as a legitimate solution. It's a silly loophole, and it's a shame it exists, but as it's part of how this game works... worth mentioning, just for anyone new to Omelette numbers.

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson (but if u used the same method, but put the 2x3=6 part last... iirc it would count as a fail and score 0)

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell For omelette I thought you had to use them all up. Unlike in lock where you can "burn" numbers.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier That certainly never used to be the case, Eoin, are you sure it has changed?

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson I started a practise game a few minutes ago and tried it out just to be check things out B4 I play the real thing... and it is the case.

(I think you can't burn numbers as your final calculation though. That must be done earlier.)

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier If so, definitely a bug in my book.

Chris Butler

Chris Butler Definitely a bug in my book too, I notice people have utilized it too in this tourney

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson Of course they did...
You have to play the game as designed, warts and all.

However if Matthew feels it's not been a level playing field due to the confusion, and wants to reset the round... I certainly wouldn't complain! lol

Chris Butler

Chris Butler Tis a shame, it's kind of messed up Omelette now, bit pointless to ever play it now (unless it gets fixed)

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson Agreed.

Sean D

Sean D Never realised that, but I see it now in a practice game v Prune. OmNums has just became a whole lot easier.

Tourney round: Weakest Link Numbers Tournament 2017: Round 12 - Omelette

<< Round 11 - Speed | Round 13 - Touchdown >>

Notes from the organizer: Round twelve will be played in Omelette format against Apterous Nude. Make sure you use all 6 numbers in your solution. Nude will choose 1 large number and may well fail to declare in the whole game. Alternatively she'll suddenly surprise you with a dead on answer. Bear in mind that scoring is stepdown (e.g. 1 away scores 9 points etc.)
The two lowest scoring players in this round will leave the tournament. If there is a tie for lowest scores then margin of victory/defeat will be taken into account amongst tied players followed, if necessary, by total score in the tournament so far (see notes by matches).
Good luck!

Runs from: 17 February – 2 March 2017. Format: Omelette Numbers Attack. Matches: One-off. Approved.

Organizers: Matthew Tassier.

Fixtures: 21. Completed: 16.
