In our house we have been watching it on and off for some years. The game has a simple concept. There are five letter rounds in which points are awarded for the longest word produced from a series of randomly drawn letters. Three number rounds are included in which randomly drawn numbers are used to produce the answer shown by using the numbers to add, multiply, divide and subtract using brackets where necessary.
