letters are playing with my mind, giving up at 49/4.35/447 but i'll be bak. not bad for my first time?
Okay... Appearently being ENGLISH helps a lot... I'm stuck at 21/4.29/173. :S
Now I'm getting the hang of it...
*grins at Magican* You here from Robin's message board as well? :P
Heh. That's certainly where I wandered over...I wonder how many people's procrastination she's now responsible for...:)
She oughta be ashamed of herself :D *is playing instead of doing work that should be finished in two weeks*
*is playing instead of writing up a project report that's due in 6 days*
Oh this is all her fault...;)
Oh man, I only make 4 letter words. I've got 2 5 letter words and that's it... *sigh*
I know the feeling. Didn't realise quite how impossible a lack of Es makes the whole thing...I'm sure there must be words longer than 5 letters in there somewhere. But where are they?
Eh, can't find them. I've got 20 words now and I think I'm stuck...
28 currently. i just really annoyed myself by discovering how you can nearly make dramatic, but actually can't. Grr.
Haha, yeah, I got that one as well :D Why can't you use a letter more than once *pout*
22, so there's still hope.
You can so nearly make PARADIGMATIC. And COAX. Sigh.
38. I just had a little spree. I wish there weren't so many nearly-words, though. They're really distracting.
Hoy blondie...u with me yet ??
Hmm. There should be bonus marks for really nice and infrequently used words. That sooo deserved more than 12 points. :)
53/4.32/464 and grinding to a halt.
Never far behind :-" Bright Eyes ;;
44 and totally inspired now ;) ;)
40 , and totally inspired as well :)
Hi to anyone who's from Robin's newsgroup/sffnet (I haven't posted in her group, just lurked...)
54 and boggled eyed LOL
63/556 and gone to have a life!
*waves at Liz*
Gah, I seem to be totally stuck on 54 words at the moment. Brain...where have you gone?
ANyone found a 6er ??
Yup....Just the one so far though...
LAURA ya rotten Scot...LOL Give us a cloo or i'll SHOVE ya ;)
Oh and a seven....
Im stuck on 59 and time for bed in OZ me thinX...
Hi Skittledog! Nice to meet you. You're way ahead of me - brain fried today!
I do have one 6, though (I think it's easier if you are used to British English - I think it's more commonly used over here.)
But there's a 7... oh dear. I may never escape now! (Can't go while there's a challenge like that to be had!)
Grr. I'm british, and still no 6. Or 7. This is annoying. :)
Sorry! I wish I could stop seeing 'damage' (proabably beacause this is damaging my brain...)
I don't care what it says, 'starmap' ought to be a word. So there.
So did strim. My mother has a strimmer. So why can't I strim?
Found the 6! Wooo! 56 words...gosh I'm getting slow.
I tried that too... but I just found about six words all of which I thought I'd put in because I found them on the way to longer ones (if that makes any sense...) I have really, really got to go and do some shopping!
i can only find 4's and 5's. this is sad
too bad aramaic isn't allowed (cuz it's capitalized, i guess)
4 ne1 keeping score, i have 86/4.41/851
there's one 8 and five 7s I've found so far...
if that m was an n, i could get a few words
Huh - it seems to allow anything the dictionary doesn't capitalise, even when the only definition of a word is as part of a proper name. Interesting - might account for quite a lot of strangenesses.
I just woke up (so I'm here, naturally). I'm also from Robin's boards. I'm JamethyWilkins, a couple of anonymouses as well (I forget that I'm not logged in a lot).
Wow, much happened while I slept. I've catching up to do.
I'm resuming from 81, 725.
Wow. .a nice sleep really did me a lot of good. I found one of the six-letter words, but other than that, it's all five and four-letter words. But I don't mind that much.
103 words - 4.36 - 945
Honestly, though, I'm just happy to have used that X. Stupid X.
Oh, I forgot. ::also waves to Liz::
My brain hurts. I've got to go do the "life" thing. I don't know where you guys are getting 8-letter words. That's crazy.
Leaving with 125 words 4.49 1322
the only thing i can find with the x is tampax
sorry to give one away put what is "purs"
OK I have 711 - how in the world does someone get 1322?
found a 7 that i didn't know was an actual word ...
Hmph. 25 words... pathetic. Only one six-letter word, the rest were fives and fours. And I'm rather annoyed that it insists 'prag' isn't a word. Hey, they use it on 'OZ', don't they?!
Oh well. Off to bed. Maybe the nest one won't be so hard (ha!).
Found the word that uses the 'X' and it's not that difficult after all. Now if I could just find a couple more of the sevens. To say nothing of the eight...
Read about this on Robin Hobb's SFF net newsgroup and decided to give it a try.
Bad idea. Forgot how bad I am at word games. Been staring at it for an hour & I have 6 words, 1 with 5 letters.
Hi Twisted. I found out about it there, too. Sorry, can't help with the shooting part. My editor may shoot _me_ if I don't find a way to give this up, though (big deadline for Friday... oh my!) You know how they call Everquest 'Evercrack'? Well I think this should be called 'Babblecrack'...
why doesn't this thing allow any latin (botanical latin)? It is driving me crazy, I could have had the X and a 7 letter one at that!
oh that x word WAS easy! but not as high a scorer as I would like ;(
Did yall have fun while I was away? =)
Popsicle clue for Twisted and others: Look up to find seven-letter words.
RET: Scrabble, Boggle, and I go a long way back. Someone gets 1,322 points when one's parents give their child busywork at a young age that includes transcribing pages from the dictionary by hand. Being that comfortable with the dictionary attracted me to games like Boggle and Scrabble early on, and that's where 1322 comes from. Or came from. That score is history, now. ::grins::
Calamity....i may have to hate you (in a friendly, loving, horribly envious way of course) =)
Think I'll give up where i'm at....finding a 7 was taxing enough at the moment...
818 - time for bed - good for you calamity - hopefully i'll be better competition for you and others some other time.
popsicle=ice lolly? (Fruit flavoured ice on a stick... I'm English. Two nations divided by a common language and all that.) Now me, I grew up on Scrabble and cryptic crosswords (Boggle was unknown in our house), but today my concentration is just shot. (I think it's because I know I have other things I should be doing - things that will pay the rent and so on...)
Not so "hot"-compared to Calamity/ Congrats! Good night (joey)
I expect that you will be outstanding competition after a week of this or so. You're doing great, already. Each day, just push for 30 more words than the last day. You can do it.
I'm sad that grampa doesn't count on here. Was I the only one to call my grandfather that?
Of course, some of us newcomers (mentioning no names, of course...) have found _fewer_ words each day than the one before...
I have certainly found less words each time I play!
I meant me, of course! (I came second the first time I played, two days ago; yesterday I came just outside the top ten... tonight I think I'll be lucky to be in the top hundred!)
Well I came in around 190th the first time, 200th the second time, to 204 now, tonight maybe 210th place! For these reasons, starting new things like word puzzles can be intimidating...
a tough day today, but at least i spend most of the day outdoors, away from the laptop. as far as the *rankings* i started 40 something, then 30ish, then 20ish, then finally cracked top 20 at 17, but will probably slide down tomorrow. :(
either way, if i play tomorrow, i should be shot.
I shouldn't have let myself play today, and I really shouldn't play tomorrow. In theory, I do a bit of work then do this and so on. Only today the work didn't happen. Bad me.
