One of the most popular TV contests all over the world over the last years has definitely been Countdown, the game show broadcast on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom.
A contest that prizes intelligence
The contest's game was really simple: on the one hand, making the longest word possible with 9 letters chosen randomly, and on the other, trying to calculate the exact number also chosen randomly, or at least get as close as you can, by adding, dividing, multiplying or subtracting the numbers offered.
You'll miss Nick Hewer in this version.
The version of Numbers and Letters for mobile phone offers the following game modes, among others:
- Practice with no time limits.
- Against the clock.
- Lightning in which you have to solve as many problems as possible in 150 seconds.
- Letters, to build words in 8 different languages.
