Numbers round

  • Once the numbers have been chosen, players have 30 seconds to find the answers
  • Each player declares the number they reached, and then PMs their answer to the bot in infix format, e.g. (5*10)+75+(8/4)

Letters round

  • The starting player has to choose the letters by typing c and v
  • Letter choices can be combined, e.g. cvcvcv
  • Once 9 letters have been chosen, players have 30 seconds to find the words
  • Each player declares word length and PMs their word to the bot

Conundrum round

  • The bot comes up with a 9-letter phrase
  • The players have 30 seconds to find a 9-letter anagram of that phrase
  • The first player to shout out the correct answer wins the round
