Octolock Variant: Octolock


As you might imagine, this variant is a straightforward combination of Octorock and Lockdown.

Letters round

The first and last letters selected, highlighted in red, must appear in the word declared. If both highlighted letters are the same, that letter must appear twice.

Numbers round

The first number selected, highlighted in red, must be used in your solution. Note that the solution is still valid even if the red number leads to a "dead end"; for example, if 2 were the red number and 100 the target, 6-2=4, 10x10 = 100 would be a valid solution.

Conundrum round

Nine letters are shown, from which there is exactly one eight-letter word available. This word is the answer.
