yes the dictionary leaves a little to be desired - they should have used a more international one
It's the same dictionary as is used for Scrabble. That's the point - it's a cross between Scrabble and Boggle.
discodave I am well aware of this but there are valid words that can be found in the scrabble dictionary that aren't allowed here
Fair enough. I'd have known that if I was using one, but I don't really see the point. Each to their own, though.
Big deal....I get a 9-letter word and net 54 lousy points!
mvuijlst can i ask how many 4 and 5 letter words you have - pretty please ?
Sure. 23 fives and 60 fours.
how many of these words are obscure?
I didn't know the meaning of five of them, but they were plausible English, and were apparently accepted :)
thanks mvuijlst btw, i thought i was doing great with my score but you are doing heaps better than me :)
Well, I'm afraid I've run out of steam. I'm off for a couple of hours.
Soooo, Saturn is proper and therefore out, but biblical names are not? That's so lame. As a devout follower of the Greco-Roman pantheon I am totally offended by this preferential treatment.
rata(s): large New Zealand tree: a large New Zealand tree that belongs to the same family as the eucalyptus and myrtle and has hard red wood and crimson flowers. but it didn't count.
Just to confirm -- has anyone made use of the Qu?
I'm new to this... found you through a link on another blog. So, how do we play? Must the letters abut, to make a word?? Are diagonals allowed???
click on babble rules upper right hand corner of page.
Thank you... as soon as I clicked on SEND, I saw that link..... memo to self, use eyes, then fingers! Can someone explain the significance of the numbes posted- 44/4.39/318 is one example.
Well the last two days have been 10 minute attacks at the puzzle while I'm waiting for family and friends to arrive so I haven't been able to do a proper attempt. Hopefully this coming week will be back to normal and I can start making tolerable scores again. Good luck everyone and have a good "rest of the weekend" wherever you are.
I've not had much of a chance to play the last couple days either. And christine... the numbers are: words found/average word length/ score. Hope that helps =)
ok I give up - i know someone who has this score : 126 / 4.80 / 1348 - so i think I might retire as i'm never going to find another 45 words
And yet another question... if I sign off, can I return to the same list, before midnight? or will I lose the words I finally found, and need to start again?
yes, your list will stay as long as you log back in with the same log on
