Holy crap, I can't believe I missed that! The clue is so obvious now that I know what the word was...
I also can't believe GeneralVanya's score was so low.
make it 2 birds; maybe GV wants to make things more interesting?
make it 3 birds - 2 4's and a 6
a character from Hobb and of course its accepted yay!
3 it is; one of the 4 has a second meaning so i forgot it also denotes a bird
catchin z's now; do tell if you find a q word
1 Q word so far
oops...make it 2
I've only got one, and I found it purely by chance.
If you have either of the ones I do, the 2nd should be easy.
Yup, got it.
Hey Rodders .....seems I beat you again!!! Come on keep up!! :)
ah first time, I am losing horribly...
Cant believe I spent most of yesterday on this, scored 2014 and still finished way down the list...... I must be doing something wrong......
hurrrray! got the "QU" one!!!
I have no idea how you get over 2000, I'm not even at 200 yet, sigh
@ lela - don't worry! it depends on the letters ... i think everyone will have much smaller lists this time
@ frenchie : "vrai" ne marche pas!
lol I know
yesterday France didn' twork either
the people who made this game were frenchophobes lol
@frenchie : well i hope you got "franc" yesterday!
oh god short seer, how did you know I was frenchie??? do I know you?
frenchie, you might know me as myo
hi myo! it's witty lela
Myo??? *thinks*mmMMMM ah of course
MYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! happy to see you here!
i was pretty sure it was you lela
(and of course ffff was unmistakable)
true, the lela gives it away a little bit :D
*rush and bump* niaaa!
... there's TWO farseer names today ... betcha haven't got the second one frenchie
what?? a second one??? where is it? is it acceptd????*bump bump bump!* teeeeell!
yes it is accepted (which is why i didnt tell you who it was :D
Not one of the main characters, but not so obscure that you wouldn't know it.
I have no idea why it should be accepted here ...
is it a character?
someone who appears in the farseer series
rodders, saphie......you are underworked.....
and over paid!!!
Sapphie have u got the two Qu's yet?
there's an AE character too today.
EAROL is so a word......
myo - i got both farseer characters - and just got your name. Nice. have not been onto it lately.
Any longer than 7 yet?
Arene is definately a word!! I study chemistry and can prove its existance!! Also my score was low yesterday, but that is due to the limited amount of time i could spend online, I do apologise if i have disappointed you =op
I for the life of me can't think of any words that start with Quo, any clues?
I just shocked the shit out of myself. I just found 2 qu words. I really pulled those out of my ass
46 words 455 points, is that good.. I see all these other scores and it makes me feel like a dumbass
we'll meet again!!!!
55 words 4.33 517
How is everyone else going?
Odd-- I found a random word, tried to look it up because it seemed like a bizarre word, and it says there is no entry found for it.
Just found the third Qu Word...enjoy
General Vanya - thanks for leaving room in the rankings for the rest of us! haha!
just got up, found the first 2 q words. only 2 7 words, for 70/4.44/750
Yeah, playing with Vanya is like golfing against Tiger Woods
OMG, i cant believe how long it took me to find that second qu word :D i feel dumb now
soz, here's a strategy. when you make up a word, like the q qword, click on the ? next to it to get the definition; sometimes it will show a related word, like in this case.
Do you often make words up?
everyone's different, i'm sure, but i start out entering words i know. but if i get a hint, like q words, or 8 letter words, etc. and i don't have them, i start making them up. to be a *really* high scorer--i'm not quite there by the way--you have to either be a walking dictionary, or make up quite a few. of course, the next time a made up word comes up, it's not made up if you remember it.
Sorry, probably seemed like i was having a go there, just joking around a little, only found that qu word by making stuff up :D
73 words 4.58 875
I am so done now though. This one was tough
burns1 you're a gun! Nice score.
I think it may be time to start thinking about life outside in the sun! Yesterday was a gift from above. I had to proctor a three-hour essay exam...no laptops, no books, no cell phones...just pens and bluebooks. Without "Babble" I would have had little to do and a long afternoon. My method is to find all the little words first (even passing by the longer "forms"), adding neighbouring letters to those, then building compounds. My thanks Hasbro and PlayBabble.com for one terrific way to pass the time and still leave one eye available for watching the frantic scribbling. I agree with Beluga...the ? is a good prompt for alternative spelling.
hm, what if you could download the puzzle each day and play offline? then you'd only need a laptop--heck, download it to a pda--and you wouldn't need internet. then you can play outside & upload at day's end. of course, you'd miss the witty commentary. :)
Or, just play at night when network television revels in the gross and directs nightmares. I thought vomit was something done in the privacy of a bathroom or dark bush... :o
taking a break at 77/4.55/900
two Q words & two 7s, one of which is quite common, at least among cultured folk
Nice clue...and a far cry from the one that frat boys favor.
Hobbers, I've got The Farseer character and the AE character, but what's the third? Ahh, gotta check it tomorrow...
cool, found a bird because it was the name of my college library
it's a wader btw, if that helps
Still stuck trying to find the cultured folk/not frat boy word...
We don't have frat-boys over here, surely we Brits deserve some consideration?
It wont let me have a word starting with qu that i know is a real word. Are the q words startignwit it or havign it in the word??? Got the wading bird...now to round up the other two!!
I have a q word that starts with q
awwwwwwwww ....now it won't let me have mooner. Surely someone who bares their bum to the world is a mooner????
purloined is so close and so far...
Has anyone hit 1000 yet? Just trying to determine if it's do-able today.
I think there's some subliminal advertising going on here - or am I the only one to spot Revlon in there? Oh and I see myself in... too.
4t8 I was just thinking that! Argh...
i'm fairly stuck at 85/4.48/933, so to answer your question, counselor, of course 1000 is doable
especially now that i'm restuck at 86/4.50/969
Beluga, I am breathing down your neck at 85 words 4.53 963. I just want to reach 1,000 so I can quit and then go sue someone.
87 / 4.55 / 1002. I quit. Surely there's a life out there waiting for me!
This puzzle hates me; I've only got 58/4.34/557 and only one seven.
suppose i should thank you counselor for making a prophet of me. :)
this puzzle is a "mofo"
took long enough, putting it aside at 88/4.51/1003
655 and 2 7's - needs a second look after I get home and relax
Eruv is very much a word. As a matter of fact, there is one close to where I live. So there.
who knows what evol lurks in this puzzle
it also says iwun, wunder if that's true
some things might be even evolur than you expected ;)
evriwun must be warned
don't you mean wurened?
I blame the heat for impairing my ability to concentrate, leaving me with a dismal score.
I can't believe how obvious the third bird was.....ahhh well can rest easy now I have the three!!!
No va...va....voom :(
terrible day @ 372; can only see what's not there - veranda, volunteer, nerve, wreath, etc...
hurry up tomorrow!
omg! 2 q's
What a day!
Only 30 words.
And I worked an 8 hr today. Guess we were busy or something.
And then I couldn't even get a *nooner*!!
i dont want to play today. its to late to start. =/ good luck to all of you that did play
No 7's, 8's or 9's
1 qu word. Only 18 pts.
Think I'm through with this one. Good Night.(Joey)
well I was hoping for 900 or more but I think I'm gonna give up where I'm at... just waiting for the next game now...
