There's another 9 for 78 relating to an 8 letter word.
And an 8 for 60 ...
got the 90 points one!!!
Really want "siege" to be in here.
who knows that these words are in there for high points? how did you know
Anyone use the Z yet?
Seems an odd one today, there don't seem to be as many shorter words...I'm averaging 5.2 letters at the moment
67 / 4.93 / 1127 .... so a bit of a lower average than you ....
Yes, I suddenly spotted a load more 4s that I'd missed.
73, 5.10, 1343 and struggling!
6 eights and 2 nines so far
2 more 8s ...
ALzheimers doesn't work (in more ways than one)
argh and there I was being quite pleased with myself :S
Yeah, but I missed the 11 yesterday...by the time I'd gone home from work it was still only mid-day on Yank time ;-)
five 8s and two 9s, but I haven't found the 78-point 9. My 9s are for 90 and 60.
I'd never have got the 11, I would spell it synaesthesia!
that's the joy of working from home, I can leave my computer connected through the evening and see what the Yanks are saying :P
ah yes, me too ... but I guess we Brits have to learn American for this :P
Y'all be right about that, son.
uh, I'm liking this one - 2 minutes in and I found a nine, I usually have to stare at the grid for an hour to find those
There is a word with the 'z'.
don't feel left out, the british spellings of words are also accepted
... i'm always happy to get metre, litre or colour :)
137 words 5.36 2908
what a cool Z word :)
yep and it's my highest value word
I don't usually ask for clues because I like to suffer in silence, but does this word begin with 'z'?
nope, it has two meanings, one related to sentiments and the other to fat ... o_O
Ohhhhhh! Thats a brilliant word :)
please how many letters for the z word??
Ahh, got it now. Thanks for the clues! It's a 7, mellowmasher.
thank you thank you will keep looking
Yes, got a 9! And 6 8's too. 88/5.15/1706 so far. I'm usually awful at the longer ones too.
thanks got it now and 1 9 and 4 8's
lawyer-1 - I think you've got everyone beat today...I'm not even going to break 2000. Bah.
can't find that 9/60 ... here is the addiction ;)
There's always someone who comes along and tops my score. C'est la guerre!
Hmm, I was just looking back at yesterday's puzzle and noticed that whoever it was that had finished first had used the word 'nestor'. I'm sure I tried that word yesterday but had it rejected. Hmm.
I used "nestor" yesterday, and it was accepted. *shrug*
Oh well, it must have a grudge against me for yelling at it all the time :)
Yeah, you must have incurred some bad Babble karma. Now, sharing a few of your longer words might help improve your karma ... ;)
Heh, well, two of the 8's are extensions of a 6 that's worth 24, but I'm pretty bad at giving clues, so that's about as helpful as I get, I'm afraid! :)
Theres is an 8/60 and an 8/65
You guys are good. This is my first time playing and I am not doing too well. Hehe.
Hi! Yeah, that's me! LOL!
To be honest, I thought this was going to be easier than it was and I'm pretty much stuck at 93/5.10/1741 now.
I started yesterday because of Kristin ! :)
I just started because of that post in GC. LMAO! I have only found 36 words and I am totally stumped.
I lurked in Kristins journal and had to check it out...there is a post in GC??? I may have to go there and see what it says. lol
This is super hard!! I only have 24 words total and none are over 6 letters!!
Pretty soon they'll have to rename it ovubabble. ; )
funny cunninghampa!! lol :)
Another ovusoft user here!
This wouldn't be so hard if it used words that are common in the english language.
theres ur 7 letter ?? does anyone have anything i can use??
Ugh, I found one that is not even in the dictionary and it let me use it. LOL! Ok!!
WOO! I found 9/90!
stuck on 12/169
Good job, Lesley
I'm stuck at 67 words 4.87 1061
OMG, I suck at this. :(
I'm now addicted to this when I'm on the computer lol
No wonder no one is posting in Ovuland. Everyone is here.
So, is there any way to know how many words there are?
I can't do both at once
Anceps sometimes posts the stats...not everyday though.
I really want to figure out the Z word!!
I am majorly stinkin' tonight!!! Ah well!!!
so....do people just randomly type "words" hoping they work or do you look for ones you've actually heard of? Seems strange people find so many words....maybe I'm just dumb (73/1631)?
oooh an 8! go me! this is my first time, but it's SO addictive!
I think the old timers are going to start feeling as though they've been invaded. :)
You think you're dumb...I'm at 31/463 :) These letters are super hard for me...
I randomly type some and have seen only a couple so far w/o random guesses
Don't know how lawyer-1 can have 50 more words than me....where the bloody hell are they!!!??? LOL
what does this mean?
um, that's how many words and points I have (had). Cause now I have 74 (words)/1640 (points)
how on earth...i'm 48/743
stuck at 78/1207
back later to find that Z
am stupid tired and have 54 794 but don't knwo if it'd be any better with sleep.
oof. can't believe i wrote that!
hints for newbies like me - what I've figured out - think about groups of letters that go together commonly, either at the beginning (eg. "sch") or ends ("ier" and "er") of words - these clues alone should lead you to the big points (inlcuding the "z" word) - and don't forget about plurals ("s" and "es") good luck - I'm stuck now. grrrr.
Hi Everyone, I am stuck at 42 words. Two of them are 7 letters at 48 points each though. Not bad for a 1/2 hour. Time to eat dinner. Will be back later

Mine too. I guess I can't do five things at once...
So what's an "average" score?
The z is at the very end of the word.
I dunno, but mine isn't very good... 24 words. LOL
This is going to be one of those words that when you figure it out you are going to go DUH, huh?
