why wont it let me have
hmmmm knew I shouldda stayed in bed ;)
or this one....
Any better than 6 yet?
not here :(
Nope, can't go higher than 6 here either
couple 6's, but nothing better
Those ads that constantly flash surely aren't worth the money. There has to be better way.
I am struggling with this one today.
if you use mozilla, the combination of the built in ad-blocking and this extension:
removes all the ads before rendering
Dr. God -
Thanks for fixing that Q scoring thing
i'm seeing no Q words... am i moron? [yes, but..]
there's at least 2
I got 1 Q. Thanks to a word I learnt ages ago from playing scrabble.
and thanks to that making me look at it again, I just got the second one.
ooh. i just got one. dictionary doesn't recognize it though. heh, like i care..
yeah, you never forget certain lists of scrabble words :)
Well, I'm done for the day. And appallingly so today:
32, 4.44, 345
the Q word is actually french...
and why is 'warf' not being taken?
Yeah a couple of 6's but only one 'q'..
so far 58/4.38/629
wasn't the character on star trek's name spelled 'warf'? maybe that tripped me up. nyaaah!
so close to 'euchre' and yet so far!
A smidgen over 600 and that'll do me.
OK, someone'll get close to 1200 at least, but I know my limitations...
65 - 4.40 - 701
I could not find a legitimate q word to Save My Life, and I know French? somewhat
holmes, it's also used by the British
i found the q word...
3 6-words and 627 so far - tough one - :)
Freuchie is a village in Scotland...
OK - I admit - I got my best word - 36 points - by guessing what looks like it should be a word - if they wanted to make this hard thy would deduct for bad guesses - Anyway - up to 671 since I found a q word also (only 8 points)
the Q word describes what borders the Sein River in Paris
So they'll take an obscure round tar and skin boat in the Irish language, but they won't take the Irish spelling of "queer?" Oh well.
I need to learn some Q words, because I can't find or think of a single one.
woot! thanks for that, kaetchen!
73 - 4.41 - 7.93 and I'm quitting before my brain melts and leaks out onto my shirt looking like vomit from eggs and bloody marys.
OK, I have 2 Q-words, but they're both short, 4-letter guys. Is there a longer Q-word out there?
i think you people with two Q words are either lying or i got the wrong letters...
Quaa, quaw, and quat are all Scrabble words, but don't seem to work here. Don't ask me what they mean, but...
drrr quit thinking QU remove the U and try again
Thanks jkos31 -- didn't know you could take the "u" out!
Me either just happened
689 - must ...... make ....... 700 ......
It SAYS Qu so I was DOing Qu. Stupid thing: I was ripping my hair out here!
well, not really
just to be clear, I typed the curse and it put in the bleep. I wouldn't write bleep myself
OK I quit enough is enough, this game is making me MAD!!!
75 words 4.45 854
Hmm, my score is 666, no wonder I can't find any more.
Hola wow I went a whole day with out Babble yesterday it was really a boring day. I missed all the fun confusion.
still nothing over a 6 - anybody else?
nope just 6 6's
hey, thanks, this is just my third day and I didn't realize the 'u' on the Q was optional! Thanks much!
Ok, there are other people that know 'ragu' as an actual Italian sauce, not just a brand name, right?
That's ragout, isn't it?
The "u" in "Qu" in not supposed to be optional. It is a bug that I thought I had fixed. I guess I didn't. ;)
although it did allow Q without U, it did score it correctly this time
hmm.. please note: I'm getting a late start here
Ok, Babblers, the "Q" bug has been fixed - this time for good. Sorry "qats" lovers. ;)
but now it doesn't seem to accept any words
... i've run out of real words, but it's saying that existing chains of letters don't exist
it's telling me that all my words don't exist in the puzzle... hmm...
Oops... back to the drawing board...
it's all good now... thanks! :o)
A 'ragout' is actually different from a 'ragu'. Sorry, a little obsessive about food-related stuff!
Dr. God, is there a reason I had to re-enter the words I had that started with 'qu'? It's perfectly ok to lose that were 'q' only, but...
That was my fault. Sorry about that.
No problem! Just wanted to make sure I wasn't going crazy!
Oh, maaaan! I leave for a few hours, and look what happens -- the Q and not U thing gets called a "bug" and "fixed." When the qat's away... blah blah blah.
I, too, came back to find I'd lost my one-&-only Q-word, but I reentered, so there! I've been here for less than a week, but this seems the most difficult puzzle.
Well, with qats gone, my final (I think) is 83 - 4.45 - 939
Looks like this thing is central time, and I'm in Illinois. I was hoping for the rollover at 11. Oh well. Anybody know how long after midnight the finals are posted and the next puzzle starts?
