Well I was on my way to watch TV but.. I don't know.. Suddenly it was like the game was calling to me or something.

12:50 am
jayferg

1:08 am
hourfollowshour

Anyone have anything higher than a six yet?
1:13 am
Dani

1:15 am
sapphie

Hey J.....its your little daughter's fault....she is a pusher of adictive games, gets you hooked and then leaves you suffering.

Well done Rodders, I see you must have had NO lessons yesterday, was it 'study tme' with your kids???
1:18 am
itzie

I see a 7 and an 8. (I'm sitting this one out, though)
1:20 am
itzie

And a 9.
1:21 am
sapphie

....hmmm and an 8 too. Looking hard!!!
1:22 am
joyce


Yep S.. she is pretty darn evil now isn't she. 'Course now that I think about it.. all my kids are pretty darn evil.
Gosh.. kinda makes me misty.

1:27 am
hourfollowshour

Two 8's, both are based on the same word.
1:27 am
Dani

Damn!! So it was actually calling to me!
Spooky!
1:44 am
sapphie

Just got a couple of sevens for 40 and 44... got the others apart from the 32 pointer!!! Nice puzzle today :D
1:45 am
sapphie

And another two sevens for 40 and 44, very similar to the first two.
1:47 am
Rodders

Hi Sapphie,
you just keep dangling the bait, I'll just keep on avoiding it. Have a nice day..
1:58 am
hourfollowshour

There's a 9 in the puzzle!
2:14 am
mellowmasher

158 words 2167 think im done
3:31 am
Christine

This is fun -- seven 7s and a 9.... no 8s.
Anceps, wake up, and post your findings..
4:05 am
anceps

---------------------------------
Max: 292 words, for 4595 points.
(1104, 915, 546, 267, 68, 59)
Best word: 84 pts for 9 letters
'E' in upper right corner is the only one not to be used.
'N' in upper left corner is the only one not beginning a word
---------------------------------

4:32 am
The Goddess

Yeah, I got the 7 worth 64, cool
5:53 am
Christine

Sapphie---'it does warm your cockles....' are you in England??
6:24 am
sapphie

Hi Christine! Yes I am in England. We do have the best turns of phrase I think...don't you ;)

Looks like a mega puzzle today!!! WOW!!
6:26 am
Rodders

Sapphie, I've just seen the ratings for yesterday.
I have past the test.I MUST DIMINISH AND GO INTO THE WEST!!!
7:17 am
FitzyFitz

Errrm, don't want to knock Anceps, but I've managed to use the E in the top right corner...
7:27 am
Christine

FitzyFitz ... tell us the word, and we'll seee if you've beaten Ancep's program....
7:30 am
FitzyFitz

Jean
7:38 am
Christine

Oh, you trusting soul.... now we all know your word (evil grind...) actually, I tried that word, asnd it was rejected, hmmm,..
Have you noticed how many names, (m/f) are in this grid?
7:40 am
cbullock

i get the feeling that it's probably the E that doesn't start a word, and the N that isn't used at all
7:45 am
Atalante

4 animals, 1 young bird - so far ... and the 64 pt word :) and a good lot of organic chemicals ...
7:57 am
M&O

Do the chemicals use -ite?
8:07 am
M&O

Hey-- I just noticed I got an 8 point word by accident about 10 minutes ago-- 50 points!
8:10 am
Atalante

noooo ..... mainly ine
8:11 am
M&O

Thanks
8:19 am
FitzyFitz

So that's 11 points you all owe me ;-)
8:31 am
Christine

I have an elderly man, a senile old woman, a young bird and animal, visitors, same old fish, Fitz's word... and a sign you have car trouble.. but I just can't find that bloomin' 9.,
8:39 am
M&O

Fitzy-- I have 10 that uses both of the other e's. Will that do?
8:39 am
M&O

10 point word, that is. Didn't want to get hearts racing over 10-letter possibilities
8:47 am
totoro

This is my first time. It's pretty hard,eh. Got a few animals, but I'm stuck at 500 odd. Any techniques on offer?
8:47 am
Atalante

oh! how could I have missed the same old fish .... *sigh*
8:48 am
M&O

Look for rhyming words; look for parts of words and try to add on (-ite, -ine); if you think something might possibly look like it remotely could be a word, type it in and hope.
8:50 am
totoro

Got ya, cheers...I keep on wanting to put gnite but it's not there/isn't a real world!
8:52 am
M&O

I keep seeing words that aren't there, too. 'Yogurt' is taunting me in this one.
8:55 am
totoro

taunting me now!
9:30 am
setting_sun

Hmm. I think anceps said earlier that the 'e' in the top-right corner isn't used but I have found one word for it. Just one, mind you, nothing major.

I'm retiring at 156/4.87/2077 for now.
9:40 am
allstar

M&O dont know if you have this 7 letter for 36 but you have a fairly new one in your home
9:46 am
sapphie

It let me have jean :)

Yes Rodders your time is past......
9:57 am
sapphie

Got myself a bird....a European kite.
10:04 am
M&O

setter-- is it a living thing?
10:05 am
M&O

never mind-- got it
10:20 am
Atalante

found another word using the top right 'e'!
10:23 am
M&O

I also have 2 with that e-- both short, though.
10:23 am
BIA

there are at least 3 words with that top right E
10:24 am
M&O

3!? How intriguing. I have one with the e at the end, and one where it's the second letter.
10:27 am
BIA

Sorry ... my bad ... 2 it is (at least, that I've found)
11:05 am
runningforhome

Bah, it won't accept lego. :p
11:34 am
BIA

No, it really is 3 ... I just temporarily mis-remembered what the 3rd one was. 2x4, 1x5.
11:39 am
FitzyFitz

I've just found a very clever ursine...
11:55 am
FitzyFitz

I absolutely can't believe that it won't accept the well-known English word NLOJEACYFTROGNLEILEASDNIT. I was nlojeacyftrognleileasdniting only last night.
12:04 pm
Mal

Christine,I think your elderly man, senile old woman,young bird, visitor etc. You seem to have a house full.Or mabey just our family.
12:16 pm
FitzyFitz

Woo-hoo! Finally got a 9!
It's my only word bigger than 7, mind.
12:25 pm

See y'all
12:33 pm
signe

hihi I got the URL from the Howe site where I met crooty, who happens to also be a Hobb fan..:) weird world..
12:41 pm
anceps

FitzyFitz, Your're right. I'm sorry, I made a mistake: the 'N' upper left is never used, and the 'E' upper right never begins a word.
12:44 pm
Atalante

Hi Signe ... I think tooty crooty is recruiting quite a few people from JH to here :)
2:02 pm
totoro

Oh dear I'm stuck on 90 words 1260 points. Can't for the life of me find that 9 letter word!
2:15 pm

4:17 pm
Suzanah

I have a bazillion 7s (okay, actually 17), but no 8s or 9s. Anyone care to share a hint? ;)
4:39 pm
Youloud

a hitn for a 8 ...
Well, follow the line, do it again and doing it again you got an 8 ;)
4:43 pm
Youloud

My second 8 is a french word that oddly fit in the game !?! (and is not recognize in the dictionary...)
5:05 pm
Mal

I must be really thick because I can not understand this clue for an 8 word.
5:16 pm
sultana

I don't either...
I am at 100 score 1031

no 8's or 9's...
5:21 pm
Youloud

for the hint, maybe "make" would be better than "follow". In the other hand I'm french and it's not easy to give hints so english words ;)
5:21 pm
Mal

I have 97 word 1078 the biggest are 7's I am really not in the Big Boys league I guess I may just quit and go to bed.
5:23 pm
Mal

Belive me Youland I think you are doing well with your English I am just a bit stupid, or even a lot stupud.
5:24 pm
Mal

Sorry Youloud I spelt your name wrong.
5:26 pm

Little sister.... you've got a life, I just lie around, doing crosswords and Babble.
Luv ya.
5:29 pm
Suzanah

Thanks for the hints! I'm back from a quick nap. Off to search for those 8s. :)
5:30 pm
Mal

Christine
Do you have the word that Youloud has given the clue for? I bet you do the best I can do is a 60 point word.
5:33 pm
periwinkle

Hi all, It is my very first time here. I have been playing for about a half an hour. So far have 50 word, 550 score. I like it but am sure I will not find over 200 words
5:34 pm

Marianne -- more words.
6:05 pm
Christine

Are the rest of you beginnin to feel that you've joined our family??
6:12 pm
Suzanah

Christine - Yes. And since you're sharing words with family members ... ;)
6:20 pm
Mal

Christine no one in their right mind would want to be part of our family
6:21 pm

7:08 pm
Vict

Sorry for what I'm assuming is a dumb question, but this is my first look at Babble.

At 4:04 am anceps said

Max: 292 words, for 4595 points.
(1104, 915, 546, 267, 68, 59)
Best word: 84 pts for 9 letters
'E' in upper right corner is the only one not to be used.
'N' in upper left corner is the only one not beginning a word

I have used the 'E' in the upper right corner. So what does this message mean?
7:24 pm
runningforhome

I think he mixed up the E and the N.
9:27 pm

10:05 pm
Now_a_Pumpkin

I found some of the longer words (my 8 and 9 are both verbs ... and i suppose they're both sewing-related). It's the smaller words that i can't see today
10:07 pm
Now_a_Pumpkin

okay, i have two 9s now, both verbs. One in the present tense and the other in the past tense. Hope that helps.
