Topic: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

If you can guess it in the next few hours, PM me so the others can try to figure it out!

I'll post who got it right (assuming anyone's interested enough to play.)

Here goes:

6, 5, 7, 3, 2, 2.

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

Is it to do with the movies? It's such a massive subject it's hard to know where you're coming from.

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

Yes, it should have been posted in the James Bond Films forum.

I want to say it's TMWTGG based in the last two numbers being the same, but the Ts don't work, and I can't see how a mathematical progression would work...  ajb007/crap

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

As there's six numbers I'm guessing each number corresponds to a Bond actor perhaps.

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

The numbers do not relate to a name of anything.

What? If it’s not the name of anything (a noun), what else can it even be?? A date? ajb007/confused

It's not the safe-cracking code from OHMSS or YOLT, or Drax's safe code or lab keypad code in MR.

There are six numbers corresponding with six Bond actors. It's not related to the number of times they say "Bond, James Bond", but is it something along those lines?  ajb007/confused

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

Thanks for pitching in on this thread!  ajb007/cheers

It's not related to actors. It's not related to any particular film.

'Code' is putting it too strong, perhaps. You don't need to figure anything out like safe-cracking.

And I'm not the sharpest tool, so it won't be anything too complicated.  ajb007/crap

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

Okay, (John Lennon) here's another clue for y'all...

What do the numbers refer to? (It's not a mathematical quiz or anything like that.)

It's not about any film in particular, but the films in general. Over the years.

It's about diminishing returns.

PM me first to let the others have a go! Answer posted this evening!

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

Diminishing returns? I was going to say is it the number of Bond movies per decade, but that doesn't fit.

Too vague for me, could be anything.

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

I don't think it's too vague for you at all, emtiem.  ajb007/biggrin

Do you want to do those sums again?  ajb007/amazed

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

No, he was like Colombus who discovered America but didn't know he had. Or EMI having the Beatles in for an audition and letting them go...  ajb007/lol 

A fine glass of wine raised to you both this evening.  ajb007/martini  I'd also like to give a mention in dispatches to Sir Hilary who really gave it all in a PM and made me feel ashamed I'd made it too simple, all about the intervals between films, on the right tracks.  ajb007/cheers
Sorry about missing out CR 67  ajb007/takecover  but you can see why.
I'll come back to this later...

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

I did think it might be that, but then the 2000s had DAD, CR and QoS...  ajb007/amazed congrats to emtiem and Sir H though for nailing it.  ajb007/martini

Re: Can you crack this Bond numerical code?

Did I get this wrong? Let's see:

1960s: Dr No, FRWL, GF, TB, YOLT, OHMSS: 6
1970s: Diamonds Are Forever, LALD, THWTGG, TSWLM, MR: 5
1980s: For Your Eyes Only, OP, NSNA, AVTAK, TLD, LTK: 7
1990s: GoldenEye, TND, TWINE: 3
2000s: Die Another Day, CR, QoS: 3
2010s: Spectre, SF: 2

I think that's it. Not sure what Charmed And D meant about the 2000s and DAD etc.

No matter how many times I count it, I see six films..?

Your code above was: "6, 5, 7, 3, 2, 2" and yet you just said it was 6, 5, 7, 3, 3, 2

Look at the OP.... 6, 5, 7, 3, 2, 2. Not sure where/why you think I implied that you got this wrong?  ajb007/confused

Oh bollocks you're right.

But well done, I was wondering who'd be the first to spot that...

Now, I have enjoyed a bottle of white Marlborough Sav Blanc but looking back on this thread and the last few posts, I've no bloody idea who is right and wrong.
Emtiem is the winner because he pointed out how I was wrong on the 1980s number and therefore Higgins loses by default as he didn't point it out!!   ajb007/lol Perhaps Higgins was being nice because he mistakenly thought he'd offended me on another thread.

It's too much for a Friday night.
