Huh and Aussie Goddess.....I know your little game ;) :p!!!! Such well matched scores all the time. How do you do it?? :))
Well the psycho babble going around is that they are joined at the hip but share one brain.
LOL Joycey I think you have hit the nail on the head there!!!!
tisk...tisk.... such bad LOOSERS!! ;) lol Morning sweeties :) Now run along to school, you may learn somthing. :) :p lmao Mwa Mwa!
Morning, huh. I lost to Vanya again, and couldn't get 2,000. How's your game today?
i'm beginning to think the word 'tern' is more common than the word 'the'...
A very good Morning to you Cj :) Actually just wondering whether to pass today REALLY should be painting *groan* Guess my Vaio Laptop would look cool in Brillient white lol
AND dont know how you managed your score Yesterday :o :O Great effort!! can we be friends ?? ;) lol
Woo I found an 8. Before anyone else even mentioned there was one. That's a first.
hmm, the best I can get is a 7 letter word so far.
I've only got up to a 7
80 words 4.86 1089
theres a few 8s there and a 9 that i've found so far
I found a nine letter word, but I still can't see any eight lettered ones. Hmph. More staring required, I guess...
can see Sevens but no 8 yet :( *goes back to painting*
I just noticed that you can make 'peottre' in this puzzle. That amused me, given that quite a few of us followed a link here from Robin Hobb's message board. :)
*passes paint brush* You missed some :p lol
Hello Huh ;) U vanna paint my portrait ? ;)
I hadn't seen Peottre. :) A few days ago I did notice Faramir in a puzzle and wondered how many other people it was annoying by being an almost-word.
your birds are back
I have to wait until tomorrow to see my score!? Patience is a virtue.
Don't worry, M&O. You won.
I just woke up. So many hours of not playing, wasted in sleep. What a shame. Well, I'm picking up from where I left off. Evidently, I'm short a few long words. Thanks for the insight, Vanya.
117 words 4.76 1448
Things that annoy me:
"natto" not allowed. It's in my fridge, but not allowable on Babble?
Why on earth do you have natto in your fridge? That might be the problem to begin with.
I pickle veggies with it, Japanese style. Yummy!
so far 7 -6's and 2 -7's at 53/4.6/608 i'll be back but i gotta do work now!
Has anyone used the L?
Yup cbullock...nice to have those birds back, but only the usual suspects, nothing too exotic yet.
I wondered, when I saw someone post that they got here from Robin's message board, if it was Robin Hobb. Chalk me up as another reader, though if it's the EZboard you're talking about, I haven't posted there in ages. And under a different name.
what's the highest point word anybody's found?
66 for me, but others may have higher.
so happy. got an 8.
geez, mines only 39. where is everyone from? i guess it may make a difference of where you're from to see the different slang and more common words
no, i think 66 is the biggie
who wants to give a clue and say the first letter of the 8 letter word?? pweaseeeeeee
I'll bet it's not L!!!!
haha that makes a little sense!
there's more than one 8...heh.
ahhh! thats crazy! my highest is 3 sevens
i have 3 sevens too, and I'm well chuffed! I don't need an 8 to feel good about myself!!
if it's any consolation, I may have an 8 but i have no 7s at all
it is, cheers! :) how does this game get so addictive? look what it's done to me!! I've become obsessed with letter counts!! aaaargh
I DO need an 8 to feel good about myself
milkmaid, what does chuffed mean? lol an 8 would make me feel good too
chuffed means pleased!! LOL! I'm from the north of England if that has any bearing on it!
elphaba - tis indeed Robin Hobb. She posted this on her sff.net message board, and we all went and got addicted. Many of us are ezboarders too....what might we know you as?
i'm from the lousy eastern United States i think it does make a little difference! heh
I hope you didn't think I was being rude!!
no of course not! im was being truthful about the US being lousy! lol! i think countries near yours use the "real" english. haha
is it really that lousy? I'm not so sure about the quality of my english either, education didn't prepare me for babble!!!
Hey milkmaid, I'm from the north of britain too.... is this game addictive or what???
totally, I fear I have lost myself, but it's weaned me off rizlajongg though. Do you say chuffed?
I say chuffed, and I'm british. Chuffed is such a cool word. :)
im gonna try to bring chuffed to the US, well at least to my little groupy of friends!
Hooray for chuffed!! I think ladylikebag should start spreading the word chuffed around the US! it's a great word
Another northener here =D And chuffed is a great word =) Now if only I could be chuffed with my word count... *sigh*
Oh yeah I say chuffed all the time... in fact I'm well chuffed at the mo 'cos I got the 9 letter word :))!!!
Oi Laura...what you on?
Never mind Laura Pet ~ Another Day another Play *wink* :) Can only see one 8 tonight :(
Yeah wot you on Laura ?? Whiskey ;) lol
Whisky? I wish! ;) And I'm on 51 words right now...just can't seem to see anything today... Maybe I should try playing after whisky instead ;)
65 words 4.66 759
i feel stuck here
Hey Laura...some days its like that...you just cannnot see anything no matter how hard you look.
ok, i've started to invent words now, time for bed methinks! good luck everyone!
i like when u think ur inventing a word so u put it in and it happens to be a real word!!!!
that happens loads, maybe I should keep going, this could be the optimum state of mind!
see how I have been sucked in?!?!!
I am at that stage when I am saying must reach a certain number ....and that is fatal 'cos you just cannot give up then....only 6 off the 1000. I will get there if it takes me all bloody night!!!
we're all lost, each and every one of us, our loved ones will blame babble for their pain
Sucked in is right. I am in the same position with that rizlajongg now. AND IT'S YOUR FAULT, milkmaid.
Keep going milkie!!!
ah hah!!! how goood is it!!!!! I knew you'd be sucked in!!!!
I can't believe I'm still here
From now on I shall call you milkie. I love it!!
Oh yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!! 1000. But now the addiction still forces me on....*i must get more*!!! LOL
why thankyou, always nice to be given a new name, I am honoured!
Dang it Sapphie.. What are you doing babbling when you should be blogging!!!
sapphie nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! you're crossing a dangerous line!! imagine if there was no time limit
umm, im cool. :-)
yeah, but im cooler
leanne, we must bring the word "chuffed" to the US! it means pleased
no you arent. gimme a word :-)
Hey Joyce...LOL you'll never gues what E said.... 'you should be blogging babe'.... well the phrase pot calling the kettle black springs to mind!!!
1000?? I was about to give up on 491, but I have been inspired to carry on. I may be here all night.
i am chuffed at what you did to me last night danielle
660 by the way fultonic :)
catching up on 574. I hate this game.
OK...gotta call it a night... 80 words 4.80 1030 ....sensible other half reminding me I have to work tomorrow.
you too, can't believe that score!!! byee
How ya doin' my little Tartletts!! I miss reading about your escapades. I guess you could just go ahead and blog here instead. LOL
I am well chuffed with myself on 81 words and 1063 points. I am carefully ignoring the fact that i can't find any more no matter what i do, and am pretending that I am in fact stopping there because it's time for bed. Night all!
i can take no more, farewell
Don't jump, milkmaid.
skittledog: i posted a few times on the EZboard as lirael, but only a few times. it amuses me to no end that it turned up on her board - and one i didn't know existed, even. [goes off to inspect]
came back and found one of those durn 7s
I am really excited to see the word "chuffed" being used in a conversation I'm exposed to...
...and I sincerely believe "panter" should be a word.
is there more than one Qu word?
I don't think so, I've only made one word using the Qu.
There are at least 149 words with 1928 pts in here ... but it's no use to participate, my last two winning entries got deleted by the staff :-(
that totally rips, sorry to hear that.
i couldn't remember my log in password but when i started out as "lil" the person before mentioned how she cheated. so i thought it was okay to mention [that i hadn't cheated and said] i was amazed at the words i hadn't found...needless to say a few people tried to rip me a new one. it sucks being honest sometimes...
I noticed that your scores were removed, Ysegrim. I was going to actually look at your list from yesterday and try to procure a couple new words from it, because a lot of these words seem to carry over from puzzle to puzzle. When I saw that your name was taken off, I thought they'd assumed you were cheating (however that works--I didn't think cheating was possible) and given you the boot. I'm still at 124 words and can't imagine what your parents did to you so that you've developed this rewarding vocabulary that would bless you with 25 words in addition to what I have. That's a damned fine accomplishment.
You must realize that it is extremely questionable when two people get exactly the same score, with exactly the same words (I checked, each had 180 of the exact same words). Especially when that score is miles above everyone else. There's no point in playing the game if you're just going to cheat.
cheat? How can you cheat? Besides, how would 'they' know if you did? Seems a little big brotherish to me.
2-6'S, 1-7, NO 8'S OR 9'S
CONGRATS TO "HIGH-ROLLERS"
Unfortunately there are websites that will solve puzzles like this. It would become quite obvious when you consistently find 98% of the words in the puzzle. Please don't cheat!!!
I'm impressed with Calamity James, though, he/she definitely appears legit. Good job!
hmmm, websites to cheat huh? well I guess you'll know I did if I jump from 180th place to first place in like 4 games (or however it is averaged).Here's a clue to my apptitude though, I have only like 25 words now and can't find any more, and have like less than an hour to go :(
finally a "q" :-)
Don't forget to make sure you check for possible suffix additions to all your words.
*sigh. it's not the vocab that's the prob, it's seeing the words.
As long as you're having fun with the game, April. You can do it. Yay!
What is a suffix? (didn't go to high school) :)
Thanks Successie, this is fun! I figure maybe now crosswords won't be so intimidating. The whole puzzle thing has always scared me, but really, it just builds the 'muscle' of the brain.
basically they extend words at the end, and add a new meaning: i.e. "-ing" "-er" "-y" like in "talking" "teary" "greater"
prefixes are the same, but precede the word.
Suffix: 1. A letter, letters, syllable, or syllables added or appended to the end of a word or a root to modify the meaning; a postfix.
2. (Math.) A subscript mark, number, or letter.
Absolutely, April. Hooray for a thicker cortex. =)
Yeah, I look for those but the words camouflage themselves so well. Still, what a thrill it is when I find one!
Now I am curious why a word like yang goes through but a word like prana does not? both are eastern mystical words, commonly used now in the west.
