ARGH! Too many people here now. I gave myself an hour to enter the words I'd figured out. It was sooo slow that I soon prioritized the higher count words. Even so ther were 20+ words that I didn't get to plug in before the puzzle closed.
I guess that I should only play from my work computer with its T1 line from now on. Too slow!
Found a 9 for 60. :)
19 words 4.95 260
this is gonna have a LOT of words.
where do you find the stats for the puzzle?
ooh i got the 9 for 60 :)
apparently aint, aint a word
I have a feeling that damn x is going to be useless. :(
there are tons of 6's and 7's in here!
I thought you could only use each letter once in each word?????
Nevermind ~ I see what I did.
How do we know how many of what word?
oops - how many of each numbre of letters?
someone with A Program has to run it against the puzzle and come up with stats.
O - I see
got to love the ing
and the 's' letters :)
bazoOka... did you get OTTO, yesterday?
Thanks to whoever cleared that strung-out screen we had yesterday,
yeah i did, im pretty sure *you can check though* lol
Anyone know why it won't accept Latin?
I just got an 8 letter word that let me use i twice. At least Ithink so.
I GOT TITS !!!!!!!!!
i have an 8 letter! :D
haha me too :)
It wouldn't accept afro the other day either. Strange.
or today for that matter :P
2 8's :)
It won't take trist either. Hmmmm.
It won't accept santa OR satan. What kind of non-believer puzzle is this? :p
woo hoo another 9 for 60! :)
it won't take nitrox?1!?@
Maybe because there's no "y" in the puzzle and "tryst" needs one.
are the 9's compound words?
I found trist on dictionary.com with an "i". It won't take stent either.
eyezzz -- try adding another letter to the end of trist
no, teh 9's arent compounds
mucho gracias fixitfmly :)
49 words 4.92 622
I'm out - have a flight in the am - sa d I won't be able to finish this one - seems a whole lot easire than yesterday's
must stop this obsession and get to work ..... just one more word ;)
now if I could just stop seeing 'satire' and 'farce'! ;-)
this is a good puzzle :D
Ohh, you're good bazo0ka ... I was very happy with my score until you posted that!! LOL!!
i like this game..and i type fast :D
bazo0ka -- how many times have you used X -- I haven't used it at all yet :(
neither have i lol.. i work in one area trying to get all possible out of it that i can.. so right now im on the left side of the board.. and using -ing :)
I found 31 words that started with the letter "A" anybody beat that?
the site is SO SLOW !!!!!!
i only have 24 with "a"
bulldog -- I have 4 As so far
sorry, read the original message wrong -- thought you wrote *3* haha!!
out of my league! ;-)
bleery eyed girl needs to go to bed.
i have 2 that start with "a" :)
satan is not a valid word
4 that start with a, and now that i've broken 1000 (83/1001) am going to sleep.
have fun, people; 'night.
I think its because its a name. Christ isn't a valid word either.
11 a's and I really should be reading. This game is the devil.
i keep seeing 'antenna' and 'saltines'
why can't my brain just see the words that really *are* there??? :-P
Isn't astro a word?
it is short for astronaut
astro is a prefix. From dictionary.com:
astro- or astr-
Celestial body: astrometry.
Outer space: astronaut.
The aster of a cell: astrosphere.
actualy astro was the dog on the jetsons
So it doesn't take words like that.....
[quote] actualy astro was the dog on the jetsons
wow an lotr word. my husband would be impressed. :)
2 eights both for 40 and 1 of the nines....and a whole host of sevens and sixes....nice puzzle :)))
101 / 1398. Not bad for a half hour. (: night all!
well I played from the second it swapped and I've got one of the best scores I've ever had so I'm happy. I think the different endings really helped my score on this one, not to mention the fact that most of the words are more than 4 letters long! Good luck everyone, good night.
91 words 5.01 1169
couldn't sleep after all, but can now. have 100 words, with 10 a's.
times for bed. :)
too bad I can't spellcheck LOL!
Well, alas, I must sleep, and tomorrow I won't be near a computer. Good luck, all. I'm leaving with a fairly pathetic for this puzzle 76/983
anybody use the x yet?
i havent yet :/
Marianne - just came back, for only ten minutes (right!) and a good old Engish word jumped at me.... happy days...
of course one of the first words I found would be my usual drink from starbucks :-)
i think that 'x' is there just to taunt!
i've found 2 nine letters
it took a latin word from me?
but it won't take the word "latin"!!!
......but it won't take Latin !
how weird is that? one of the words i found by accident, trying to spell something else and adding an s gave me a word. however, i can't find that word on dictionary.com or encarta. bizarre
there isnt the word "latin" but one VERY close.. VERY VERY close :) <its 6 letters long, and can have an s added on teh end to make it a 7>
84 words/ 6.39/ 2197
this puzzle is great, what with all the suffixes.
it's quantity not quality right? 122 words 5.16 1799 so far!!!
Ican't get yesterdays scores up. Is it just me or are others getting this problem. I just like to see all the words that have been found.
ooops! I just found them!

190 - 5.16 - 2679
dear me i have been working on this for almost six hours, with some short breaks. but I think I found them all. 267 words 5.16 3673
Wow, I thought I was doing well to get over 2000 but I only have 139 words. Don't think I want to spend another four hours at the puzzle, though! LOL!
Bulldog, congratulations on a great score -- but SIX HOURS?? Do you spend all day doing this puzzle? You must be crosseyed by the time you shut down.
Is won't accept 'stent'. What's with this thing?
there are a lot of -ing words in this puzzle!
so far I have 8 words and 4 of them have ing!
There are a lot of words, period, in this puzzle. It'll be interesting to see the top number!
I have the same number of words now, after 20 min., that I had all day yesterday!
anyone know how many words are in this puzzle?
are the player rankings being updated?
The player rankings don't seem to have been updated in over a week. I started watching them when I first started playing and everything's the same.
I agree about the player rankings. I keep checking and I'm nowhere to be found. This is the 5th (6th?) consecutive puzzle I'm working on. *shrug*
Finally have two 9s - while reading a book, realized there was a word shouting at me... entered four for a total of 166 points.
Still no birds, but I did find a feather.
Wow, the people who don't post messages, 'cos they're busy entering longer words must have awesome totals today.
Morning !! Either my brain woke up or this is an easy puzzle ;-)
It's just that you're so smart! :-D
Thanks....but it is an easier one, LOL.
five "ing" words so far...but why won't it accept "latin"?!
Latin is a proper noun.
How many 8's and 9's have folks found?
1 8 and 1 9, but I know there are more out there :-P
Hey K! The ones you found, do they build on smaller words or are they stand-alone, so to speak?
I have found a small sandpiper
Clues for 9s would be welcomed!
Both my 8s are superlatives.
BIA ~ Duh! Thanks, I even had one (short one letter). Oy vay.
You can get a good word ..... something you do at lent.... it makes you hungry
Jemper - They build on smaller words. I found a 2nd 8 seconds after I posted that other msg.
Got 'em, Kristin. Now I gotta figure out the 9-lttr word. ;o)
I noticed for the first week or two i started that i wasn't listing. but went away, didn't play any games for a few days, came back and there i was. guess there's a delay to tally them, but there shouldn't be...maybe try logging out and back in a few times, or leaving some space between logging out and in.
75 / 5.05 / 1001 ~ Not bad for me, first time breaking 1000 points! Time to turn in for the night, have fun while I'm gone!
x marks the spot
my first 7 letter word ever
x marks the spot
another 7 letter word
any clues for the nines ?
Both 9's are gerunds.
argggg! it won't accept fasten!!!!!
It will accept 'fasten'.
241 words 5.47 4019
Can anyone give me a hint on a word using x?
one 9 starts with the I in the upper left corner.
trading that hint for a hint to the other 9... :)
If I had a 9, I'd trade. I have some cool 8's though.
clue for 9 letter... a renter, add a suffix
Jeez. I don't believe that's a word.
i found a 9!!!!!First time of my life!Cool puzzle!! Thanks all!
M&O any hints on those cool 8s?
Thanks for the hints on the nines; I've found them both now.
I got a 9!!!! Woohoo!!
What's wrong with "satan" ?
is there a word with the x in it?
It won't take stent either.
Yay, I finally got a 9!
Can't find any 'x' words.
No words with the 'm' either, as yet.
Hot dog! Just got the other 9! Now if I could get an X word.....
so stuck on that 9 letter I word ... any other clues?
yeah...got both 9's
I can't get the i one either
i think i've the "i" one, but as i don't even what it means i can't help you. It's the other 9 that avoids me!
Look up the word renter and you should get a hint for the 9... for the i word go right 3 down left then right and you should figure it out
ah ... i got it ... i had the first 5 letters already ... i knew it had to be something along those lines!
Thanks Swtbtrcup. :) I had the first 5 letters too but couldn't see the rest for anything. ;)
92 woeds...My best babble ever...But brains fired/fried. Headache. Good luck for those who're staying.
it would be nice if it accepted 'aliasing', and nicer yet it 'antialiasing' was there :)
97 words-- so close to 100!
Does the C start any words?
there are at least 10 "c" words
10!? I just found *1* and was happy. 10?!
how many 9's are there? I've found 2, is there more?
Yes, I think there are only 2 nines
lawyer, you are one smart mamajama. I'm impressed with my 149 / 2077 (first time breaking 2000 for me: this is only my 5th game or so). you kick butt!
there is at least one 7 that starts with C
I really, really want to enter 'instantiate'. *sigh* d:
How many words are in this puzzle? I've found 195.
How can there be 10 C words I only have one. Help!
I have more words than lawer but his/her score is much better. he/she must be very intellegent. 270 words 5.17 3719
Throw down that box.....I said throw down that box.
signing off, i've been at this too long. I misspelled Intelligent.
Hi 2HOTT, Did your migraine go away?
how can there be 10 c words??? I can only find 1
I haven't found any words that begin with c.. How can there be 10 words.
hi periwinkle, only just!! playing this dont help..lol
a renter with a suffix? I totally don't get it - and don't see all these words you all are finding! am i that dumb? how do you do it?
I am ready to cry...
sorry to "hear" that 2HOTT. Do you have Bath and Body Works where you live. They sell a tube of something for $10 here that is supposed to get rid of headaches.
the trick is to find a word, look at it backward see if you get one that way, look at the words around it and see if you can rearrange them.
im not too good at this but i am doing better today!!!
thanks, Swtbtrcup, but that sounds like too much work! :-) i'm doing this for relaxation, to take a break from hi-stress work. it's just making me mad!
Yea, I found my first c word. Just keep playing around with differnt combinations. You will come up with something eventually
amp ... it begins with a T! :)
any clues on the c's?
how come it won't take corsair?
Why not frites?
I don't understand why it won't take 'aliasing'. It's in the dictionary! sheesh if they took 'germfree' yesterday....
still pulling my hair out to find an x word.. any clues???
66 words/ 5.20/ 1006

I'm stuck at 89.
lin you can always hide the log!
the text itself doesn't bother me, its just hard to find any useful info in the clutter.
I'm up to 94 points!
Even the inanest comment hides a clue sometimes. ;)
how about 21 words that start with L
27 start with f
and with 270 words I nexer used the x
Thanks hood1999. I now have my first ever 9 letter word.
your welcome! :)
21 that start with L? I must be dense ... i've only got a mere 5
I only have three that start with L
it's time to go home ... see everyone in a few hours ... once i've put the baby to bed! :) -Amy
"I found an X word!"
Even with all the chatting, I'm really enjoying this game - puzzles with friends...what could be better? DH has been popping in this afternoon - now at 130 and 1742 points for us. Hi Annie and Amy - it's Alison
Only have one "G" - is that normal?
I only have one G word too

2HOTT, Liz does have a duaghter Hannah, Im Hannah's Nan
mal hes watching a film, suits me hes quiet
The numbers can't be right. I have thirty some beginning with the "s" in the top row.
... or I should update my lexicon :)
BTW, as the question came up: In my stats, I count letters only once for each possible word. If there is more than one way to spell a word in the field, only the letters of the "first" combination are counted.
Liz how many words have you got?
Have you any of the 9 letter ones?
Liz it makes a change for him to be quiet!!
mal 21 just my age, and no i dont have any 9s yet
I have managed 113 words 1448 points. But I'm not as good as the Big Boys!
I did get one 9 letter though!
remember the now silly-looking hairstyle called the afro? Babble doesn't. Now, I understand it not knowing what we called the same hairstyle on our jewish classmates (isro). They were soo coool in the 70's.

i'm back ... any good hints since i've been gone?
ok....this is driving me nuts!!! It says there are seven words beginning with the "O" on the right hand side. I can't find even one. Has anyone else?
I have 6 "O" words. It may help if you think of it as the "east" side of the layout.
oh boy....now I really feel dumb...
Thanks you fnurt!
Oops, I meant Thank you!
Calling it quits... gotta go out tongiht
149 words/ 5.95/ 3195
why no afro?!!!!
At this instant I wish instent was a word...
looking at stats I see I have both 9s and several 7s but NO 8s!!!
keep thinking I should have more words beginning w/'anti-'. Anyone willing to say how many 'anti-' words they have?
I still only have 10 As :-(
i'm so stuck!!!!!! ARG!
i'm right there with you ... i have no 8s ... i only have one anti- word ... anti! *laughs*
fixit ... how many words do you have?
woefully behind the curve -- I'm at 119/1635
The numbers said there were 11 F words.. but I have 12? I have both 9's but I too am failing miserably at finding the C words. 94/5.23/1396
31 f words
lol slt... thankyou. Just as you wrote that I found another 4.
i wanted to get 100 words, but can't - don't have it in me - guess I'm just not a word person. or one with a limited vocab! :-) 'night all, amy, melody, alison -annie
me ... 101/1500

Hi Ladies...I didn't get to use my printout much today because I was driving a lot...only have 92/1190 and I'm off to bed soon!

Sorry if this has been asked before..did anyone get an x word?
there is no "x" word
according to the stats the X isn't used at all ;-(
Stats? What? Where? (duuuuhhhhh)
bazo0ka -- thanks for the tip! I have both of those! ;-)
managed to find a couple more As staring right at me but I'm a long way from your word level!
Any hints on word types/patterns for finding the 8s? I'm in a rut and need a new thought pattern!
back at 6:21 PM your time stats were posted on the chat log
Well after all the hours I've spent on this puzzle I've got 199 words, and I can still bet that there's quite a few left... I think this is the best I've done so far... Guess that's what I get for not having to work and being able to sit and stare at the screen all day for two days now...
this is a four letter word beginning with "s" that can be 4 5 or 8 letters long depending on the ending..
the definition is:
To direct that a letter, word, or other matter marked for omission or correction is to be retained.
there is one very close to it also(one letter moves to get the new one) that is a 4 5 and 7
i just try to find words i can add and s and ing to :) another good one has to do with a muscle characteristic.. starts with an "s" and is capable of being 7 and 8 letters long.
Thanks Melody - took me a minute to find it...I'm in Eastern time, so it was 6:21. Do they do that every day?
I meant 5:21
im missing 5 "a" words according ot teh statistics.. :/ those are really buggin me lol, i dont see ANY more, at all
Hey, fixit~girl: I remember when my vocab used to better than yours...now it's pitiful... a mere 85/5.08/1088. Take off 22 points and it's like the Battle of Hastings! I don't see any 9's, but I've been sewing most of the day. Mom
woo hoo i got another a!! :D <ive been looking for a's for.. a long while now lol>
I'm missing a few of the "c" words - driving me crazy!
im missing 5 c's lol.. working 1 letter at a time ;)
Judging by your score, you need to stop and let us catch up! :-)
bazo0ka -- thanks for the tip . . . still looking -- looking at S and brain is saying 'edit' ;-) have done lots of 's' and 'ing' too but haven't gotten 8s that way. i'll keep chewing on this brain jerky.
most of my vocab these day is suitable for the 7 and under age -- 'cup' 'doggie' etc.
makes this game good for my brain but I sense significant atrophy! ;-D
hood86 ... wanna compare lists?
my three 8's are 2 -est's, and 1 -ing, if that helps
for c's that is
ewenme -- look at the top of the grid and think back to your typesetting days -- you'll find a 9 from a 5! ;-)
174 words....2420 pts. Haven't found many of the 8's tho'
Got 5 C's...just like school. lol
i've got 6 c's but 4 of them are all varitions of the same word
whoo-hoo! after seeing 'saltines' on this grid *all* the time, I finally found an 8! happy dance! ;-D
hey hood86 ... gonna be in your neck of the woods tomorrow :)
