New rules for Number Plate Game
17th November 2014
This morning on the show Ben changed the rules on the number plate game, if you now get an X in the plate it is up to you whether you want to times the numbers together as if you were following a 14 plate car you will score 5 by adding and only 4 by multiplying them!
Gayle spotted the cheeky rule change...
When the horn goes off on air between 8am and 9am, look at the car in front and add up the numbers on the plate to get your score. If the plate was GB57 BEN you would add 5 + 7 for a score of 12 points.
The only twist is that if there is an X in the plate you can times the numbers, makes the maths harder but the score higher. If the plate was X356 MFM you would times 3 x 5 x 6 for a monster score of 90 points.
But if the X will actually reduce your score then you can choose to ignore it, for example with a 14 plate car you would score 5 by adding 1 + 4 , but only 4 if you if you multiplied them 1 x 4.
You can only score points from the car in front immediatley after the horn sounds on air.
Send us your scores by text, email or twitter and remember you can only play the game safely if you are not driving.
From time to time there will be the opportunity to earn bonus points at the discretion of Team GB.
We will announce high scores on air and Team GB's decision is final!
