    Cheat at Countdown numbers round

    Or get an excellent visual as to how to derive the answers.

    Directly lifted from the B3ta newsletter.


    COUNTDOWN CHEATER - There's plenty of anagram tools to help you cheat at the Countdown letters games, but this one ruins the numbers game. It's the way you can see it doing the working out that makes it special. Like a glimpse into Carol Vorderman's head.

    I should add, you can't actually do the number round using this as you can't define the inputs. So calling it a solver or cheat tool is a bit of a stretch.

    Well fork the GitHub repo and make it editable woman!
    I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

        It's typescript so kids stuff. 15 mins and you should have a version where you can select the numbers and viola, countdown queen.

          I do think you grossly overestimate my abilities

            Wrong response.

            You are suppose to say something like "Sorry I'm a bit too busy to do that at the moment"

              You can define the inputs on this one...not that I would ever even consider using it...

                  This is the go-to solver

                  Nice simplification of the methods too. Graeme (whose tool it is) is Countdown's favourite nerd.
