All right, what was the 8-letter animal?
I didn't notice the time and started playing yesterday's game! Only had enough time for 100 points! darn!
90/943 so far with this one...
wont be playing today, and maybe not tomorrow....:((
Will have babble with drawl symptons!!
Have fun you guys
Haha, I know what you mean sapphie, I'll be going away for 10 days in about a week, I don't know how I'll handle it. :p
btw, babble doesn't count your score if you don't enter any words, does it?
nope, it doesn't
there is a word on particular that is perfectly normal and not suggestive in any way but is totally making me giggle...maybe this is only a sign that I should be in bed and not on babble.
Has anyone else noticed the superfluity of dog-related words?
Just one dog word so far; but the Z is in a good place
A lot of these words also describe a cat.
Anybody found a 9 letter word?
Any 6 letter words found?
Everybody must be taking a coffeebreak at Starbucks.
I have one 6 and one 7
I have 3 7s, but no 6
Thank god for that - I've got three 7's too, but figured someone'd have a 9 for sure. Give it time, though...
I got an 8 letter word once...once. I have a plethora of 4's.
Haven't found 7 yet?
oh, yes, there certainly is a plethora of 4's in here. I seem to always find ship or wood related words, too
Even a couple of hawaiian words
There is even an weight measurement word.
2 sevens, 2 sixes, and only 2 z-words...
111/4.51/1205....calling it quits
Brain needs nourishment, it can't see any more words.
4-Z'S, NO 6'S,7'S,8'S or 9's
May look some more later. I just can't see those longer words.
Squinted my eyes thru my glasses and found a few more words.
Finally a second six letter.
If only john cameron SWAYZE worked!!!!!!!
3 Z's, 2 7's but still only 477 points. But my records anyway.
690 but only 1 7 and 1 6
just cracked 900 w/ 89 words. I QUIT. for now...
anyone have *trouble breathing*?
No trouble breathing, but buttocks numb.
second 7! taking a break at 93 972
3 sevens, 3 sixes.
4 6's. but one was a surprise; i had to look it up after it was accepted.
At last- 2-7's, 1-6, No 8's or 9's.
Wish I could find enough to get 1000 pts. Think I have finished though. (Joey)
66 words, 666 points - that's a little creepy!
found a 5th z.
4 z's, 2 sevens, 3 sixes, 100 words, 1027 --Good night!!!!!
120 words 4.54 1352
4-7's, 5-6's, 5- w/ a z, 1-starting with z. i give up now
113 4.51 1256
4th time playing finally, got over 700, can't understand how you can either sit here so long or are just quicker than I to be able to get more than a 1,000. kudos to you all.
um. i printed it and took into the shower with me. also found a lot of random words. also used it as a bookmark while reading notre dame.
sort of sad that zygo, pyro, and gyno weren't accepted though.
This is my first real attempt at this. Is there any way to see what words you guys got to get to 1100 - 1200+ points in so few words? Congrats.
Finally reached over 1000 pts.
2-7's, no 8's or 9's. 5 "Z" words.
I'm finished. Good Night. (Joey)
Once the puzzle ends, you can view other players' word lists for the day before.
once you go to yesterday's puzzle, click on a player's name; if you need a definition click on the question mark to the left of the word.
Oryza - a genus of grasses.
Unfortunately it is Oryza, not oryza.
Such a pity.
122 words 4.52 1350
2 extra words, yet 2 points behind ladylikebag.
I'd like to rifle through her bag for the bigger words i'm missing.
i'll take that as a compliment shortseer but i also take it as a challenge, maybe i should push myself to get a few more words, then maybe that will push all of you a little harder! good luck to you all, just dont turn into a babble feine like me! i write the puzzle down on some paper and all day, extra time, get my brain going. it gets boring! but good look again yall!
i feel so innocent, only just found a frenzied type of word, lol.
but good look again yall!
but good *luck* again yall!
heres a little hint:
it seems like about half of my 5 letter words, if u take off the first letter or the last letter, its a "real" 4 letter word!
good luck with less than an hour left!
lazer ----- not a valid word??
lazer ------- not a valid word??
i spent ages clawing my way up to lawyer-1's score "because it was there". No sooner do i meet that challenge, then ladylikebag posts her score. On hands and knees i struggle up and up towards this new peak.
ALMOST made it ... and what happens? She's going to move up higher.
damn damn damn
heh, got just one more word
121 words 4.54 1358
oh, goodie! thank you. that hint got me 5 pts - to 1302. just got a few more by putting words backward.
i appologize shortseer, but i found a 4 letter word then its 5 letter plural! couldnt help myself, u made me push!!
123 words 4.54 1390
4t8: ur welcome! that always helps be gain some good points!!
littlee33: i believe ur not spelling the word you are thinking of correctly, look at the puzzle again, the word you may be thinking of is there!!
i can see the smirk on your face, you know. ;)
if i could just find ONE of the big words i'm missing i'd maybe catch you
but i think i'm ready to give up ... my brain is dying from lack of oxygen at these giddy heights.
yeah, i've stopped looking, just waiting for the next puzzle. the smirk didnt stay on my face too long! ;) hey, u never know, tomorrow could be a bad day for me and u can beat me out!!
... one more 4-letter word jumped out at me.
Seems i'm living up to my name.
Can't find the missing long ones ... just the short ones.
No more playing during the week for me.
I'm going to have to go on "de babble diet" (limit babble calories to once a week intake at the weekends only)
starting late gets me only around 600 points...oh well, (maybe) next time
i wish i had the strength to do that! my only decision was to skip one a week, thats my "diet" haha!
