Well, I wasn't even close. So much for relaxing there
well your tied for 2nd...not too shabby
and i cant believe i missed trainee
I cant believe I missed domino
FUCK GOD THIRTY TWO LETTERS IN SEVEN MINUTES
words. no more drugs.
This is an ugly puzzle upon first inspection
Let's restrain ourselves from cursing in the chat log, folks. Babble is an all ages attraction. ;)
Yup, when I cant find words, I act like a 5 year old. :P
im up to 33
words...not points : )
I've got 66, and by 66, I mean 21
like the math
Yup, good thing its spelling, cause if this was math boggle, I'd be...um...whats the word... :D
Time for some new music...need something to get my spell on. ;)
mythrl, you on the West Coast?
yeah im thinking of starting a babblers anonymous support group
hardcore brands in this... Miata, Lindt, Lindor
i found a word worth 54 points
6 letters / 39 points is my best :(
did anyone get "minipark" yesterday? it was worth 80 points.
So basically, given the words in that one dude's 1500-some score, the point of this game is to sit here and enter all the possible five letter words that you can, regardless of whether or not you have ever heard of them or know what they mean? Sounds like this is a game for accountants and golfers to me...
54 you say?
54 is divisable by 2
So it might be a 5 letter word with a point value of 27. Impossible.
54 is divisable by 3
So it might be a 6 letter word with a point value of 18.
54 is divisable by 6
So it might be a 9 letter word with a point value of 9. Highly unlikely.
So I'll assume it's 6 letters.
These are the possible letter combinations that I can find:
YMWYD(One 1 point letter)
ZY(four 1 point letters)
ZW(four 1 point letters)
The YMWYD one is highly unlikely, so I suggest you focus on the ZY and ZW combinations.
Yes, I do think too much.
Yaa I got it.
You buggers, I can't find it. And I really should be doing some work.
the weird thing is, Mr. 1500 didn't even use any A words. Time to go tweak the word-generating script, dude.
haha thats crazy ! he'd have way more points of he used some a words :)
hehe papercrane has lots of ziti's!
I found a 54point word too XD it starts with z!.. its zitiiskskjim ...
zitiiskskjim is a 342 point word silly.
woo no wonder I'm winning :P
there can't be too many more than 49 words in this puzzle.
54 I have 54.. but I'm just making up bs words :)
You know what would be cool? A rotate button so you could get a different perspective.
yes yes yes!!! i already tilt my head to create that effect
my only question is, what's a "zoysia window"?
(and is it related to a "windy soddy malms toddy"?)
i would really like to be able to see how many guesses (ie invalid word entries)people have made after the puzzles close...maybe this could be added to their word lists
indeed... or maybe a points penalty?
to be honest, there's no point in having a word game where people can sit there for several hours and enter in random letter combinations and find words....
the thing is if there is a points penalty who is to say the wont just go to a dictionary first then...and i dont want to penalized everytime i make a typo..and on top of that some educated guessing should be a part of it...and finallly sometimes the game accept spanish/french/etc and sometimes it doesnt which means you just have to try those words to see if they work...same goes for some proper nouns eg. it accpeted roman a few days back but not haitian
it might be simpler to include a second stat in the rankings
# of words found / # number of attempted entries X100%
mythrl, good idea
(sorry dr_god for postulating here, it just seems that people are ruining this game by being dumb)
actually, people are ruining the game by being smart.
mayor modofo of the mayas, why don't you have some satay beef, or some soya... it'll malm you down, word.
Thanks.. 3 new words for me.
im up to 64 words...how about you guys?
i got 138 / 5.28 / 1624, you have a long way to go
49 and I think I'm done.. Any more and I'd just be making guesses.
what the hell...138 your joking or youve been guessing all day long
where are u paper something?
drew 138 really?
i can't find any words! help me!
Regarding the talk about guessing, etc. I've thought long and hard on how to solve the dilemma, but every solution simply introduces new problems.
And no one's touched on blatant cheating, which I know a couple of players are guilty of. Tsk tsk tsk...
blatant cheating? like scripts or something?
I won't say how I know, but I will just ask those that are cheating (and you know who you are) to stop.
Keep Babble pure!
Dr_God: would it be possible to display the number of invalid words people enter for each puzzle along with their word lists?
Sure, but as someone said earlier, players would just start looking up words at dictionary.com first.
well im thinking that if it doesnt actually affect their rank it might not make that much difference then...i mean i do some guessing too but i wont stop if it doesnt actually affect my points adversely
are you people just pulling words out the wazoo ?
also in later news.. still at 54 :(
don't mind my spam, but how come you can't view puzzle archives from the rankings page? I just like going to that page to see all the times spectra has whooped me :)
I may "fix" that soon.
dr_god, thanks :)
i like this game but the nonsense words make me sad
151 / 5.18 / 1892
Dr_God : Would you consider me a cheater? I guess sometimes...or are there people that do it more that you're talking mainly about?
Consider it a vocabulary building game then. ;)
good enough for me!
now if you can only fix my friends' refusal to play word games with me.
172 / 5.17 / 2017
drew your full of it...your numbers make no sense...youve went up 21 words and averaged 6 points a word but your word average stayed pretty much the same at 5.17...so the worst case scenario has you averaging a little over 10 pts a word which you miss by a long shot
225 / 5.24 / 2391
ok now your numbers are getting even worse...i cant wait to see your word list :)
69 words 4.36 747
don't be such a bunch of winy yids! you guys can yawl all you want, but in the end, everyone will have their yays.
what a great game! and drew, i'm so glad you're playing.
it's like a pile of some sort over here.
windsor should work. Yet it doesn't
Windsor is a proper noun, so it's not a valid word for Boggle.. *ahem* I mean Babble.
382 / 4.67 / 4214
5029 / 15.34 / 1850372
OMG YUO CHEET
read it and weep
must have been "zitiiskskjim" that pushed him over the top
