Details

This is a fun session based on the popular UK game show Countdown [1] and its parody, 8 out of 10 cats does Countdown [2].

In the TV version contestants take turns picking 9 random vowels/consonants and finding the longest word in 30 seconds.

in this version contestants take turns picking 7 random C++ tokens from 5 categories: (keywords, identifiers, operators, punctuators, literals) and writing the shortest C++ program using all 7 tokens in 8 minutes.

More details about the game can be found here:
