FOUR and EIGHT, you say? Well, let's have a look...

Mildred, you can uncross those kidneys because it's a FOUR! You receive 50,000, from no outlay at all. Impressively, you have now moved up the ranks and are not even the poorest player any more!

But now it's over to Spanners. In the Millionaire's mansion the rules are different: Spanners, you still have to choose two numbers to bet on, but you must also choose a stake. You may bet 20,000, 50,000 or 100,000. The stake goes to the bank, but if you win, you win five times that amount!

Your decisions please.

From now on can I have a standing order of 3 and 8 with 50,000 please. Apparently they are Piscean lucky numbers and they have to come through for me sometime!
And while I'm waiting for the rest of you I shall enjoy foot massages, champagne breakfasts and my own personal golf cart

You can indeed - but, sadly, the number spun on this occasion has been SEVEN. You lose 50,000. Like you needed it anyway.

Next, Swoop spins a 10 and lands on "Enter round-the-world yacht race. Pay 120,000 or hand in a luxury yacht card." Unfortunately, Swoop, you are in possession of no such item, and are therefore now 120,000 poorer.

Arabstrap spins a 9 - it's all about the high numbers these days - and lands on "Hurricane hits top holiday resort. Pay 135,000 or hand in a luxury villa card." Sadly, Strappo, you have no such card either, and your funds are therefore accordingly depleted.

Clara spins a 3, landing on the toll bridge. 50,000 therefore goes directly to... Arabstrap! Yes, that's right - Mildred is no longer the poorest player. In fact she isn't even the second poorest.

Kelly spins a 3, landing on "Auction. Pay 160,00 or hand in an antiques collection card." She has no such card, and therefore pays the money.

And we return to Mildred, and await her two numbers.

On this occasion I think I will place my bet on the numbers

TWO ...


and


SIX.

However, I don't expect I will win two times in a row . Very unlikely.

The spinner has been spun, and.... sadly, Mildred, you were right. The number was EIGHT. Oh well; there's always next time.

Spanners, next, bets 50,000 on 3 and 8... and the spinner is spun... and it's a THREE! Spanners wins 250,000! There's just no justice in this world.

Swoop spins a 7, and... has also made it to the Millionaire's Mansion. Congratulations to Swoop! That's three out of six players arrived at their final destinations. Not long to go before the final reckoning. Swoop, before your next turn I'll need two numbers and an amount to bet on.

Arabstrap spins a 9 and lands on a square that does absolutely nothing. It's the square that simply contains an arrow to indicate where the Country Cottage is on the board, and it's pointless. An entirely uneventful turn there, Arabstrap - I expect better next time.

Clara spins a 7, sending her whizzing over to "Enter the Grand National. Pay 220,000 or hand in a racehorse card." Clara does indeed possess said horse, so is spared that considerable expense. Phew!

Kelly spins an 8, landing on "Oil exploration. Pay 145,000 or hand in an oil well card." But does she have an oil well card? No, she doesn't. Cash is duly removed.

So now we return to Mildred for her next two numbers. Unless Mildred has suddenly acquired a computer or a habit of visiting internet cafes, this probably means we wait until Monday for the game to commence.

Tune in next week for the thrilling finale of this dramatic event!

May I have an update as to amount of hard earned cash I have accrued please? It's been a bit of a rollercoaster ride of paying heaps of money to those less deserving then me for the last few turns, and I can't work it out. In the meantime though, I'll bet ?20,000 on red. No wait, on 1 and 9.

Ooh, very exciting! My numbers this time around are four and eight (and I'll stick with those for any future turns, please, should they arise)

You may indeed. Thankfully, since you're all retired, it's a much simpler list than before:

Arabstrap
147,000
A racehorse
An antiques collection
An art collection

Clara
532,000
An antiques collection
An art collection
A Rolls-Royce

Kelly
890,000
A luxury yacht
A private jet
A beach villa

Mildred
In the Country Cottage
200,000

Spanners
In the Millionaire's Mansion
1317,032.92

Swoop
In the Millionaire's Mansion
180,000

But onto the day's gambling frolics:

Mildred bets on 4 and 8, and the number is... SEVEN. Lost again, Mildred. How does it feel?

Spanners bets 50,000 on 3 and 8, and the number is... FIVE. That's 50,000 stake lost.

Swoop bets 20,000 on 1 and 9, and the number is... SEVEN. You lose your stake too, Swoop.

So we now come to the closing rounds of the game - the pundits are issuing last-minute predictions and the bookies are going crazy, but let's not pre-empt the Hand Of Fate. Lady Luck, we are your willing slaves.

Arabstrap spins a 9, sending him into the Millionaire's Mansion! You've made it, Arabstrap - I'll need some numbers and a stake from you for your next go.

Two players left on the board, then...

Clara spins a 9, landing on "Enter round-the-world yacht race. Pay 120,000 or hand in a luxury yacht card." But does she have one? She doesn't! Sorry, Clara - pay up.

Kelly spins a 5, landing on "Tax rebate. Receive 80,000." That could prove to make all the difference... but only time will tell!

We're tantalisingly close to the end. Let's have a brief pause before we return for The Final Push.

Well, in the absence of any reaction so far, let's have another round:

Mildred bets on 4 and 8, and the number is... TEN. Sorry, Mildred!

Spanners bets 50,000 on 3 and 8, and the number is... NINE. Sorry, Spanners!

And now we come to a hiatus, awaiting Swoop's next decision. How much is he prepared to gamble, and on what numbers? Only time will tell...

Don't rely on time for your information, come to me instead! My numbers are 1 and 9 and since my finances are seemingly in tatters, I'll do what any sensible right thinking person would do, and bet like crazy! I'm wagering the maximum amount of cash, and I'm doing it with a scary grin, like a badger whose stripe washed out just before the annual badgers conference.

Fair enough, Badgerman - 100,000 bet on 1 and 9. If this succeeds you'll rocket up the leaderboard (although probably not to the top); if it fails, you'll be the poorest player.

And the number is...

THREE.

Sorry, Swoop. You now have only 60,000 left - substantially less, even, than Mildred, who is in fact inhabiting the Paupers' Shack Country Cottage whilst you are in the Millionaire's Mansion. Now that's irony. Don't you think?

And now we await Arabstrap's stake and numbers.

Ah so we may have reached an impasse for the duration of the festive period. Sucks for some, however I shall think of you all as I sup my vintage champagne in my suite of TheDaddy.org's most prestigious residence No, really though, if anyone wants to join me for a joint of turkey and some roast spuds you are quite welcome. I'm registered under 'Flight Lieutenant Delroy McFly'

Arabstrap, Arabstrap, where are you?

Such a marvellous game, such a potentially festive climax... but no.

Ladies and gentlemen, this has gone on long enough. The game came so close to finishing in time for Christmas but, due to events beyond most of our control, had to be postponed. Arabstrap has vanished without a trace, leaving us tantalisingly close to the ultimate conclusion of our competition.

Something has to be done.

In order to finish this oh-so-nearly-finished game, a replacement for Arabstrap must be found.

But how should this be done?

Simple!

Brace yourselves for...

OK, so so far we have one offer of a participant and one offer of a defecation. Come on, folks - I'm sure we can do better than that!

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.
