From Countdown

Jump to: navigation, search

Xicount is an unofficial name given to someone who won all 8 of their heat games, hence becoming an octochamp, then went on to win the series. This means they won 11 out of a possible 11 games. The name is based on XI (the Roman numeral for 11), in the same way that Viscount is from VI (6). To become a grand slam winner, one must become a Xicount and then additionally win a Championship of Champions. The first ever Xicount was Darryl Francis, appearing in Series 6.

Players are ranked by total points scored, not including any Championship of Champions or special episode appearances.
