hey:: new idea:: how about posting with each score a stat list with how many "not in dictionary" errors each person gets?
Spam is totally a word !
another idea:: post the highest-scoring word for each puzzle after it's over . . . like for today, that word might be "peddles".
suggestions aside : this is a great, great thing. thank you so, so much.
i just found my first nine-letter word!
(that really should have taken less than two minutes.)
essej - you are a tease! I can see no 9 or ten letter lword in today's puzzle!!
9 or 10 letters...wow
anyone found a word with the z in it?
ok I found a 15 pt 'z' word but why doesn't 'trods' work?
because trod is past tense.
there are 2 that use the "z" - I was suprised that one of them was in the OSPD as it's not extactly PC
what if you could click on the letters as well as type the word.
PIGASUS! Where one goes, the other is sure to follow! Watch out for Wreck!
You guys sucked me in. Damn you.
HI! Looks like about 30% of yesterday's players came from a certain unnamed place.
Hmmmm. You may be right.
there is a GREAT nine letter word!
hey just a thought but what about a ranking system. something based on say only the 5 previous puzzles so that not too much advantage is given to those who have been playing a while. one way it could work is that whoever finishes first gets 1 point and everyone else gets a fraction of their score with respect to the first place score. for example player A gets the high score of 1000 then 2nd place has a score of 950 so that person gets 0.95 points (950/1000) etc. finally multiply that number by 20 so 1st place gets 20 points and 2nd place would in this example get 19 points. then over 5 puzzles ideally if you win everytime the highest score would be 100 and other scores would just be a precentage. thoughts anyone?
That is a lot of math.
AW COME ON!! GIVE ME PANTRODLES
Ahh the sweet ten...
I will be adding a ranking system soon. Have no fear, Babblers!
Dr God. When God just isn't enough.
how about highlighting the last word you just scored points with on the word list...and how about me thiking about starting to read WOT again (personal info for Dr_God)
Ok - I'm guessing this is easier cause I'm not that bright, but still managed to get a 9 and 10 letter word.
Your scoring system sounds good.
scalder - is the 10 letter word the plural of the 9 letter word?
has anyone borken 1000 pts?
I've got 1119 right now. I'm guessing there are others that are significantly higher because I haven't seen the mysterious 9 and 10 letter words that a couple people have mentioned.
modbuster - do not gloat you fool.
-- scoring could just be (number of times you've been in the top 5) / (number of times you've played)
-- and you only get a score if you've played at least 7 games or something.
-- if 'trod' is past tense then what is the present tense?
-- or it could be like real boggle so that you get extra points for words that few other people got. that might be a little difficult, though, to code.
It would be cool to know how many words are possible at the very beginning of the puzzle.
arr! the bottom three tiles are not loading!
Bill_Cosby is not a fan of the Hs.
"tread" is the present tense of "trod"
i think it would be dangerous to know how many words are possible...not knowing makes it kind of interesting too because you just dont know if you have enough points to win
Im giving up for now at 614...arghh!
i'm stuck at 935 :(
DON'T TROD ON ME
I have 1086 and feel like an idiot for not finding the 9/10 letter words
i haven't found the 9/10 words either and i am going crazy. (sigh) maybe they're in cahoots to drive us all crazy...
dapete is not a word
though rooter was a word yesterday
the biggest scoring word I found was "mariodinis"
>I will be adding a ranking system soon.
Maybe there could be a special ranking system for players who use scripts to generate their word list...
you guys are using scripts to find your words? what the hell
no script here, dont event know how that would work
There are three players who are very fond of the trial-and-error method. You three know who you are! ;)
I am painfully, *painfully* fond of the trial-and-error method. :)
Yeeeees you are, my friend. ;)
You have competition, however, Antwon.
so who is behind this site?
thanks dr. god, good work!
Competition? Great - now I'll have to start guessing with *totally* reckless abandon....
i took a little break and returned to this a few hours later.. got a handful of new words
did anyone else find the 78pt a word?
yes, and a 98 point as well!
grr I want to spell zoodles!
My advice: go out and get some exercise, come back, and look again. It worked for me.
I suck at these
I'm gonna go cheer the Cubs to victory, and then come back and find those damn 78 and 98 pointers!
lol they are secret mwahaha
anyone want some blonde hair? I just tore all of mine out
I don't think that 98pt one should count because it has the same meaning :\
i played for an hour and a half or so last night, and now i'm starting up again tonight before the puzzle goes away. currently i'm at 62 words and 1097 points. i only found one z-word, though! drat. i am : an addict. my galpal, too!
and : the 78 and the 98 were my nine and ten letter words.
also : if my eyes tell me that i'm seeing "dormant" in this puzzle one more time i'm going to poke them out. with sticks. 'cause it's still not.
lol yeah I see it :D there's a d in the way tho :(
zyconium - But it's the plural form of the 78 point word. Plurals are specifically allowed.
I dont understand why they don't put the most recent posts up top ;(
Also, I think the game could use a printer friendly view so people can work on it on the go.
I guess :\ Ididn't know it could be plural in this case heh
Lmao! a printer version? What do you expect, for someone to mail it to playbabble whenever they get a word? :D
yeah printer friendly version! that way the fun never has to stop hooray!
*this just in* printscreen seems to work :\
^ Trial and Error Guy
But I don't care, I like finding and learning new words. I doubt anyone at the top knows everything they get. :S
*this just in* I just found the 9 and 10 letter words :D
yuh! good job, trhaynes. felt pretty good, when those synapses all fired in a big fuckin' line like that, didn't it? i love this game. it is teh crack.
he better not take this game offline or I might go into some kind of withdrawl ... I wonder how my 895 points will stack up... sucks that there are a lot of letters on the right that cant be used because of the lack of vowels.
woo tiral and error hehe
there's a js error when you click on peoples names to see their words in games :X
are the 9/10 letter words ones that ordinary people would know? use, perhaps, in daily conversation?
lol yes they are one the average person my probably see everyday, you've probably seen them everday and didn't realize it!
you could even use them in daily coversation! too here's and example: "hey johnny did you hear about <78ptword>? its incredible!"
I was number 4 yesterday and I knew every word I used.
and you're not talking about "spedomades"? that's a crying shame. GAH! why can't I see it???
I've got six seven letter words. I think you're all lying about the nine and ten.
Dude. Depant is totally a word.
yes, as in "I opted to depant myself to avoid the possibility of receiving a wedgie."
hmm... it seems that "depantrodes" is not a word either. i wonder what the OED has to say about that...
the 9 and 10 letter words could be a ploy to drive people mad..hehe..or maybe they arent
Hey, why give away words on the chat log? I want to use em, but I feel like I'd be cheating. Moral dilemma...Yes, I got the 9 and 10 letter words last night, and no, I'm not gonna post them up here. Just know they're real, and they're watching you sweat...
>this is great, thank you, I'm addicted, I love Dr_God, etc.
Jiminy, people, you act like you never saw Boggle before.
Oh wait, I'm addicted too. Never mind.
i can confirm : depantrodes is not a word.
hee hee hee.
Most of the words given away in the chat log are, in fact, not words. I agree about real words being posted.
i'll say this, though : i've been sating at this puzzle for a decent amount of time, and i JUST NOW noticed a word that's so obvious that it pains me that it's taken this long to find it. which says something real and good about this damned game.
"staring", not "sating". see?!
Yeah. I got one like that a few minutes ago too. I'd even used a one letter variation of the word and not noticed it.
i would like to reaffirm that the 9/10 letter words might not even exist...i mean does it really look like words that long are in this puzzle? hehe
okay, so "depantrodes" is not a real word. but who are we to say that it shouldn't be?
i think it would be a nice word for a tasty dessert pastry. (still talking about "depantrodes"
i got one damned 7 letter word, this is killing me. can't find anything more than that, my eyes are hurting
mythrl : in a little over an hour, the truth shall be known!
yes it will :)
830 and stuck. that's it i think.
(for me i mean, i'm sure there are more in there)
i hate knowing there are more words but i can't for the life of me see them damnit
:D 78 and the 98 pointers do exist
well tell me what they are for godssake.. im at 891 with no hope
