11 years ago, Kai got off to a great start and received a (VERY generous at the time) opening offer of £9,000. Unfortunately though, Kai pretty much used up all his luck in the first round and by 7-box, he had taken out every other red except £75,000! :shock:

Luckily though, Kai kept the sole red in play to 5-box and was given a lifeline with an offer of £7,500 on an all or peanuts board and DEALT. The £75k went in the final round and Kai only had £100 was it? in his box. So really, it was a TPW that would've been an OPW if Kai didn't have such a generous first offer! :)

Yesterday was 10 years since our first on-show proposal, back when this was truly unusual and a touchstone in DOND history. Now it's happened about 30 times and has blunted the edge that was sharpened by Lynsey and her partner on 08/12/2006.

Lynsey was also a family relation of former forum member Suezan, except she wasn't and she made the whole thing up.

''no i know her she my cousin much love lynsey mwah xx''

10 years to the day since Donna Rampton played. To be honest I don't think the deal she took was actually that bad statistically. I doubt Deal-Eye would have wanted much more than £21k on that board. Her reaction though was even more ridiculous than that £59k proveout offer...

Let's hope the start of the touring shows runs much smoother.

FD was £15,637.75 so DE would surely have said DEAL to £21,000. The £59,000 is an outright LIE as that offer was 185% of the FD.
You'd be lucky to get probably £35,000 on a board like that these days.

Piddled ourselves when that game went out. Temper tears. I like the very moment that it becomes genuinely uncomfortable viewing that even shuts Noel up, when he's talking about what Hugill could possibly offer at this dream finish climax, only to be interrupted by Donna growling in fury.

She lied about her job too, which both Noel and Hugill clearly knew she was. Construction yard supervisor or something, she claimed.

Donna was one person I just couldn't have any sympathy for when it went wrong, as she just came across as a spoilt child and even before 8-box, i found her somewhat hard to warm to, partly due to her dishonesty (I.e. lying about her job), which was also a real turn-off.

The ironic thing was, when practically the same thing happened in Ingerlise's game a few shows after she took £15,000 and broke down in tears at missing out on the £250k (the first time it was on the table since Double Deal Week in June!!), Donna of all people was the one who advised Ingerlise to deal :shock:


If Donna and her fiancée are still together 11 years later, it'll be an even bigger shock than Donald Trump being elected as president :|

I did a bit of Twit snooping and, erm, they're still together. It's a good job you didn't add ''I'll eat my hat'', because right now you'd be chewing away a deep fried hat on a china plate.

It actually feels strange looking back on all these old shows knowing the dream factory is no more :cry:

4 years ago, Hannah salvaged £1,313 from a game that looked promising mid-way but then crashed, and then declined the EASIEST banker's gamble ever, which was on a £750/£3,000 finish! Yet she got away with it and only had £750 in her box :?

7 years ago, Gillian was left with the nightmare finish and became the millionth member of the 1p club in season 5 :roll:

11 years ago, Dutchess Helen (the first of about 14 or so players with that name, yet was the only Helen NOT to stand in the east wing!!) got off to a disastrous start and lost all of the power 5 in the first two rounds! :shock: Due to her applauding early luck, her first offers were £900, then just £200, then they lingered around the £1,000-£2,000 region, until a much-needed turnaround happened in the last round, where Helen was left with £5,000/£20,000 finish, where she got offered an ABOVE AVERAGE £13,000! :shock: :D Helen dealt, but the banker got away with it as she had £20,000 in her box all along

12 years ago. Umm, I'd just finished my first year at high school..... :ponder:

11 years ago, Karen who stood in E3 dealt at a generous 8-box offer of £17,000 with only the £250k higher. The proveouts didn't favour her at first as she could've had £55,000 if she went one more round :shock: Luckily though, she found the £250k in the last round and had £15k on the table, giving Karen a narrow technical victory despite going one round too soon

Also worth mentioning that it was Karen's 33rd show, and at the time, she was the longest running player ever. Of course her record would only be held for a couple more months before 50 shows Lucy arrived, and by Marcus' game, Lucy had reached 34 shows, beating Karen's run with another 16 shows to go :smt023

So, £5 Irene (The first ever SWAPPER), 1p Nick, Jenni who was the original 11-box dealer, Dave and his 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc. system and Pat who had the first ever successful swap, were all well over a decade ago now!

Decade yesterday since the much-telegraphed, choreographed debut win for the £250,000.

Decade today since the wake of the jackpot being won and the player, Scottish lad, getting offered nothing but swaps until all the money was gone.

I actually just watched Alan's game from 11 years ago yesterday. Arguably the unluckiest game of Season 1. In the first round he lost all of the power 5 except the £100k, never got any offers higher than £2,500, by 11-box he had a £100k-strong one box game, then that went in the fourth round thanks to none other than the black widow herself, Aileen (She was quite a looker by the way!! ;-) ), and when the banker finally gave Alan a chance to salvage something by offering him a pretty much on-the-mean £1,000 on a 4-blues/£5k final 5, Alan dealt, only to find he could turned it all around and had £5,000 in his box! :shock: :(

Alan taking out four of the power 5 at the start was very ironic considering what happened on the same date a decade later! :shock: :smt023

11 years ago, the 1p club gained it's second member, in the most heartbreaking fashion :(

(Believe it or not, today is the first time since then, that the month of March has started on a Wednesday!! :shock: The last time February 28 fell on a Tuesday was in 2012, but that was a leap year!)

Well, let's wind our clock back 11 to the last time April 8 fell on a Saturday!! It was the game of the legendary JT who was best remembered for his hokey-cokey dance and his rather risque dance with his former neighbour in the east wing who played a few weeks earlier! :shock: :|

He also got a surprise OPW after making one of the most cautious deals ever. Accepting a DERISORY £39,000 on a £500/£20,000/£50,000/£100,000/£250,000 final-5 and then taking the three highest amounts in the proveout!!

The first week of April 2006 was an odd one really, it started with Jim H's mediocre win of £9,900, then Kirsty's unforgettable near-£250k win which saw her leave with £75k, then two ultra-cautious deals which resulted in £100k squanders (Though Johnnie's deal wasn't really that bad for what he had on the board. Sandra on the other hand, DEFINATE member of the horrible deals club :smt011 ), then Helen's healthy £22k win which could've been bettered by £5,000, and then JT's game!

Ironically, Noel started the first week of April by dubbing it 'Beat the banker' week, yet the only OPW was JT, who achieved it by having the nightmare round after an ultra-cautious deal at 5-box!

11 years ago, the last time June 12 fell on a Monday, we were 2 days into the infamous double deal week, which had two shows a day from the Monday to Saturday, as well as an extra showing of DoND on the two Sundays (DoND's 'day of rest' at the time) either side of it

The first game was Louise, best known for her "Whack out the blues!" speeches when opening her box on the wings! :-D Lou had a great game, she dealt at 8-box for £30,000 (a very generous offer for the board, as she had 4 blues/£15k/£35k/£50k/£250k). She could've had £50,000 if she went another round and came close to squndering a big finish until she found the £250k in the last box and had £15k in her box! :D A great game perhaps soured a little by the fact that Louise had been fired from being a college lecturer due to her appearance on the show :(

The second game in the evening was however far less fortunate, as Carlton had a strong start, and after 11-box, the game slowly fell apart and Carlton became the first of 3 players to pocket a tenner that week! :( Ironically, 1p Nick (along with several other DoND hall of fame past contestants) had made a guest appearance in this game!

You certainly show your work. I remember this well and I'd certainly be happier with an additional £30k in the bank than a job at that college. Another opportunity would have come along soon enough, it's not like it was gross misconduct or she was banging her students two at a time across the canteen table.

It was the college in my home town, I remember it from our local paper. Definitely a good swerve!

Yesterday marked a whole decade since £45k Kathleen. She did one of the weakest deals of Season 2 (thankfully, poor deals were a rare occurrence in the second season), by dealing for a fairly stingy offer on a 10p/£20k/£50k/£100k/£250k board just like JT did. Unlike JT who got away with murder and took out the three largest after he dealt, things went totally the opposite for Kathleen and she was left with the DREAM FINISH! :shock: Kathleen's game was basically an EXACT copy of £70,000.01 Gaz a few months earlier, but with much crappier offers, and was ironically the second highest win of June 2007!

11 years ago on this day was the game of Ryan, which was better known as 'The game where Noel finally remembered Shell who had the all-blue opening round before Aaron did it', after Ryan almost had an all-blue opening round but found the £1k in the last box! Ryan dealt at £15,500 at 8-box but could've had £25,500 if he went another round, but he only had £500 in his box all along. Spookily, Ryan had a near-identical 8-box and 5-box to Pennie in the previous game (and he had a £50k/something else final 2 AND had 'the other amount' in his box too, just like Pennie did)!! :shock:
