Goodmorning, y'all.... in yesterday's puzzle, what were the 7s and the high 6????
the 7's were outrank and mahonia.
the high 6 was mouthy.
How bizzare, straight up 7 letter and 5 x 6 letters....is this a trick...LOL
28 words 5.00 418 pts.
Why bother putting the Qu in there...? LOL Must be a lot of words to get on this one.....too easy so far!
46 4.48 426.
lot of big fish to find in here.
I am confused - can't get rules to show and puzzle keeps rejecting very normal words???
36 words 4.86 490
i'm confused too - it's loading slowly, then telling me the word i just put in has already been played.
a 2nd 7!
anceps, what are today's goals?
2 x7's here too! ;p
I got 2 8's
WooooHOOOOO!! I didn't think it was possible, but there it is -- a 10 letter word! Wheeee!!!
I got the ten also, 38,4.53,415
Alright. 85 / 4.76 / 1016. Missing the 8's, but that's enough for now.
Just got me an 8 - too easy, staring me right in the face!

Do you have an amazing vocabulary or do you use some magical word finder?
Yeah, I'd like to know what the 'cheats' use, I want one too! LOL
have only the 1 8 and no 10, sleeping on 83/4.78/1020
have fun. :)
96 for 1354 only 1 8 so far back later
I've been using www.yourdictionary.com to help but I still can't come close to the monumental scores of others.
While the puzzle definitely has many obscure words, mostly I think this is a battle of pattern recognition more than vocabulary. I always find when I look at the previous day's puzzle all sorts of easy little words I missed just sitting there mocking me. ;-)
So do you just enter in random combinations of leters until something takes?
It is getting easier for me , 68, 4.88, 880
ecoterror isn'ta word, but ecoterrorist, come on!
alright... does anyone know what 'dore' means?
41 and I'm stuck.
got a couple of 7's though.
It means 'gilded' and is also a kind of fish.
85 words 4.91 1181
Dang it. Must...break...100.
92 words 4.95 1282
2 8's so far.
97 words 4.88 1288
Yeah, gotta get to 100
99 words 4.89 1328
so close......uggggh, wish I knew the 10 letter word someone supposedley has...grrrrr
100 words 4.89 1338
YAY, I'm satisfied, whew...!
sh - click on the little box to the left of the word, you'll get a definition, most of the time; or google the word.
Words are coming faster than my little browser can enter them. So far, 104 for 1264, but someone has stolen all the 8s, 9s, and 10s.
My 30-minutes has stretched to 40, so I'm off until tonight.
so *that's* what they are. thanks, all of you.
heh, congrats Goddess ;)
MAX: 186 words for 2935 points
(79x4, 42x5, 45x6, 12x7, 6x8, 0x9 and... 2x10 !)
10-words give 91 pts each.
You knew it, 'Qu' is not used.
'N' et 'M' above 'Qu' are the only ones not to start any word.

How on earth did you get that anceps, are you one of those pple with a program to do this kinda thing...?
110 words 4.86 1437 - just going to keep coming back and trying to add - hey anceps how do you count all the 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's - my eyes can't focus long enough, you must have a cheat program huh [shrug]
Yes, Anceps wrote a computer program to tell him all this. But you can hardly call it cheating, since he doesn't play... ;-)
Is protogenic not a word ???
My program computes the list of words, but display to me only the results. When I'm done, I look to the results to help others and because I'm curious, but then I won't play afterward.
Oh, I'm so sad, I can't find a single 8 or 10... where are my little sisters, when I need them??.. Marianne & JB, help me....
very cool anceps (I'm not comlaining) I'm frustrated....LOL
115 words 4.89 1529
I'm not even playing in my own language... Pretty hard...
I'm sure-- playing in my native language is hard
Man, those stupid "o's" are messing eveyrthing up!
Rise and shine.. ugh.
So what kinda crap-o-la we working with today?
And I see someone found a 10 letter word. Delightful!
Yo! Bacchae.. Bonnie. You two babbling per chance?
Sapphie? You playin today??
Another fantasy character's in today's puzzle (quite easy really).
Oops... forget what I just said. *must rest*
What the buggery bollocks are the 10s? Any hints?
DD - You included a hint to 1 of the 10 letter words in your last message!
Oh dear, even my subconscious is taunting me...
And it's worth 91 points.
Yup. And apparently there's another one worth the same. I know roughly where I'm looking, it's just getting the letters to fit. Thanks, though.
oh yeah playing here J...and suffering with these 10's.....grrrrrrrrrr!!!
Yup, I'm playing too - but seem to be having a hard time of it in here today.....certainly haven't seen any 10s yet...
Wooohooo, I found a 10. By sticking a syllable in front of a 7-letter-word.
Common or uncommon 7 letter word?
If it's just obscure I'm not going to drive myself crazy
This one is not so obscure, because I found it (all by myself). The other one, I don't know.
Yo S & B.. How's it goin gals??
Why can I only see almost-words? Retina, pertinent, regenerate... :(
one hundred words for 1374
<shameless begging>Does anyone want to share the joy of a 10 letter word? Just a tiny hint? </shameless begging>
If they woulda given me protogenic i woulda given you that one!! Im still dirty folks...it *IS* a word, but not according to BABBLE Grrrr.
I'll give you credit for protogenic. I will add those points to your score tomorrow, then print out my own list with you moved up accordingly. So, that word was....? ;)
I KEEP seeing the word "proven", even though I know it's not there. It continues to taunt me. kjfaksdjfkasdf.
Well, that was a hell of a second wind.
I keep seeing "provoke"-- which is what this puzzle is doing to me!
Has anyone found two 10's? I only have the one so far.
130/5.18/2114 - think I'm pretty much finished, though.
who wants to give me a clue for the ten?
I've only found the one 10 as well.
well, it's no 10's for me. I suck! Help out an amature!
There was a great clue earlier about adding a prefix onto one of the seven-letter words to make a ten.
I've only got 1 seven and can't put anything in front of it!
I've got 3 7's, but nothing's working! You couldn't give me the first letter of the 10, could you?
OHHHHHHHHHHH wish I could play this one today but I just signed on and there are only like 36 minutes left of the day, and it seems too many words to attempt in so little time ;(
I only have one 10 and the first letter is e hope this helps
6-7's, 1-10, 20-6's= No 8's or 9's
think I'm finished. (Joey)
I forgot to come back - now there's only 10minutes left, for someone to give me some clues, pretty please.
I need only 2-10s, 3-7s, 23-6s, 22-5s and some 4s--- I'll be your new best friend!.
