Letters and Numbers is a global phenomenon - hugely successful in both France and England, it is a new, fun family quiz that everyone is playing. Compete against the clock and test your lexical dexterity and mathematical agility in the letter and number challenges. Score yourself in the first letter round making the longest word possible using the nine letters from the show. Compare your words with those of the contestants and master wordsmith David Astle. Points are awarded to the longest acceptable word. Mental arithmetic then comes into play for the number rounds. Pit your mind against the clock to reach the target number with six chosen numbers using a combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Finally solve the conundrum, a nine letter anagram. Thoroughly addictive, the TV show is screening twice daily on SBS 1 and SBS 2.
