How To Get Your Letters And Numbers Fix

I was horrified to hear that SBS is axing its nightly game show Letters And Numbers, having been a contestant early in the show's run. But even if you can't watch Richard Morecroft, Lily Serna and David Astle, it's still easy to keep your brain active by playing online.

SBS is replacing Letters And Numbers with its UK equivalent, Countdown (which is inevitably going to lead to a lot of Molly Meldrum jokes). If you don't want the change of pace the UK version offers (it includes a bonus "celebrity" as well), then playing online is your best bet.

My site of choice for this is Crossword Tools, which has an excellent replica of both the letters and numbers game. It also offers a solver for both versions, so if you can't crack the numbers game, the computer can do it for you and make you feel inadequate. I'll have two large and four small, thanks.


    Haha I remember seeing you too :) It's a shame to see it go, it's polite and intelligent programming.

    "Remember the first rule of street countdown.... tell all of your friends about it, it's quite fun"

      Damn, beat me to it.

    Whenever I see/saw Letters and Numbers I was reminded of my favourite episode of The IT Crowd.


    I love this show!

    Man, I remember Lily in that tight leather dress she wore a while back..... Smoking. Couldn't concetrate for the whole show!

    Whats the story behind the last pic?

    Oh no, not Lilly! She must be the world's hottest mathematician and the world's smartest hottie .

      Google Clio Cresswell before you decide that.

    There’s still a chance of this decision being reversed if there is enough public support for the show (or perhaps the ABC being encouraged to pick it up instead). I exhort anyone who wants this to happen to visit — have a vote, leave a comment, spread the word.

    Got no youtube at work so I can't post a link, but look up "letters and Numbers Bloopers" for a laugh.

    Countdown's never been the same since Richard "Twice Nightly" Whitely died.

    Bee Sees is great game app for learning number fixes and decide to download this app.
