Nasty Variant: Nasty


The letters round is as normal, but the most common letter in the relevant language will not appear in the selections. This means E in English (including CSW), French, Dutch, and German; A in Spanish and Portuguese; Α (alpha) in Greek; I in Italian and Finnish; D in Welsh; И in Russian; and י in Hebrew.

In the numbers round, the large numbers are 12, 37, 62 and 87 rather than 25, 50, 75, 100.

In the conundrum round, any nine letter word (except those with anagrams) may be used, including very obscure words, plurals and so forth. There is a special item for solving these exceptional conundrums.
