if consonants were girls and vowels were boys then this puzzle would be a middle school dance. not gonna do it.
Well I ain't gonna be no wall flower.
Of course the fact that I'm sitting here playing this kinda proves otherwise huh?!
Ok, so what were those stinkin' U words I never found???
oh geez, i missed yesturdays puzzle
yesturday's puzzle was good, I am thinking it will be hard to break a hundred on this one.
So far I have two sixes and a seven...
My brain hurts just looking at this one! Think I'm gonna take a break as well. :o)
AlyMac ~ I'm curious as well! The top scorer only had one U on their wordlist. *shrug*
I had 4
upas 4 6
uprate 6 24
uprated 7 40
this puzzle wont take "HOTASH" so I am not playing
Of course, the words always look obvious after the fact!
I'm gonna do squat on this one...
I have 29 words so far. 4 6's and a 7.
what's a hotash??? lol
9 6's and a 7 so far
something you say to whisper to your friend when a fine member of the opposite persuasion walks by
Oh well - that should definitely be allowed! :P
Woohoo! An 8 for 75
39/313 night y'all
how how how do you find an eight? i've found one six and a couple of fives, but this puzzle seems to be a lost cause.
me too mystik-
I'm at about the same place you are...
This puzzle is making my eyes feel fuzzy..
there's a car in the puzzle
its an extension of a 6 letter word
100 / 4.73 / 1385
3 7's 1 8
need a break ... going cross-eyed
I swear yesterday's puzzle wouldn't let me have words that are on the top scorer's list. Very weird...
yeah ... same here! I'm glad I'm not the only one to think that LOL
50 words 4.44 574
Time for a break. Hard to believe there are really 100 words in this thing!!
huh .... you wait till the good people get on ... there will suddenly be 324 words in the puzzle :P
my highest is only a 42 lol
where is that 8 for 75? *SIGH*
im going to bed.. this is probably all im going to get on this puzzle- lots to do tomorrow
night all- have fun
enjoy this one ;)
will play in morning..this looks particulary icky...sigh...night night
happy to have 100/1250. g'night all, enjoy.
gahhh! 164!!! see .... suddenly 117 looks awfully poor!!
139 / 1841 need a break now
The Divine Miss
ooh...a 9 for 60 ;)
ooh please may I have a clue
The Divine Miss
I can't find a way to describe it...i just found it accidentaly...lol...let me see...there is a 6 for 21 that you need to add 3 letters too...hope that helps :)
Oh I have lots of 6' for 21 but will take a look thanks
how many r words do you have?
I have 16
errr... need a couple of Ls here... and is anyone else missing GW on the bottom line of their grid??
Christine, Morning big Sister
Hey, Li'l Sis ... I'd come back for a brainstorm, and there you were,
A surprising number of words for everyone -- it looked like a barren grid, when I first opened -- but I have 113 for 1368, (so far). I'll be back with more, I hope.
Christine I am not as clever as you remeber I always need help
MK - I must do laundry - the elves didn't stop by my castle this week... back soon (I hope).
MK .... Sending you an email....
It wont let me have sancerre!
mornin' off to a slow start 16/123
Christine & all in USA Happy 4th July.
120 1614 thats enuf for now
u too! wow it's the 4th already?
need some help with the 9 any clues? or what letter it starts with ?
My best so far are 7s. One worth 44, having to do with a light source; the other worth 48, having to do with a career reversal.
Can anyone offer insights on other high-scoring words?
172 / 2264 only 1 8 and a clue would be a 7 word for 56 and add one letter
Christine check you EMail
i liked yesterdays puzzle much better. Will only be here for a short while. Going to a barbeque and fireworks later. Will do the best I can.
Thanks mellomasher ~ who even knew that such a word existed :P LOL!!
Another hint for the 75-point 8 related to the 56-point 7. Both words relate to a sound/noise that is often associated with old or poorly maintained items.
Oh, thank you thank you! What a strange word that 8 is. I still haven't got the 9 but with a nice tidy 140 words, 2000 points, will stop for today :-)
Gack. Without the hint that there WAS an extension addable to that word, I would not have guessed it.
I'm baaaack.... and even with the clues, I can't find THAT word. If you'll give me the first letter, I'll be your new best friend, and invite you to my house for a sleepover....
this puzzle's going well suddenly - got the eight letter related to the seven letter - bizzare! no luck yet on the niner...
CR you have EMails!!!!!
sitting at work all day on the 4th.... everyone else enjoy the fireworks for me!
so many sixes, but not the six for 21...help! what letter does it start with?
It won't take 'resand'.
Ugh, think I'm done. 67 words, 4.46, 674. Did anyone get anything with the 'I'?
Has anyone used the 'sch' or 'th' or 'sh' with anything? I've only used the 'K' twice. Any hints?
No i words.
Correction: used the 'K' three times.
i've used the 'k' within or at the start of words nine times. haven't touched the 'i'.
I've used the "th" once--a little word--a vow or promise
used the "sh" once also--another small word--money
147 / 4.83 / 2097
*yawn* *waves goodnight*
i'm at 98 words. i want to get to 100, and then i can maybe give up and pay attention to my family and house.
Ha... MK who is my baby sister, gave me the two words that were driving me dotty (by their absence)... the shorter word is fairly common -- but I don't recall ever hearing the longer word -- maybe something our grandmothers said??
146 and 2005 first time over 2000 I quit
can't get anywhere near what some of you have point-wise! Sitting at 70 words for 884 and plugging in words that make no sense...ugh! :-)
only used the "k" to start two, but am finding the strangest words. 78 for 994 now...
Finally broke 1000 - takin' a break for a bit. 80 for 1008...
156/2153 and dont see any more
The Divine Miss
The 9 starts with an N ;)
Got it - The Divine Miss is awesome...thanks for the hint!
The Divine Miss
Happy to help...:)
bigbirdboss - got the same 'sh' one that you mentioned already. From what I can tell, the 'sh' does not start anything. Still looking for that 'th'. Thanks for the clues.
mulhermujer - the 'th' word doesn't begin that way...only ends it...does that help?
found two words with 'sh' and four with 'ch' but not 'sch' words
Ah jeez, I must be blind. Thanks.
starts blurring together after awhile...I'm trying to avoid watching Rocky II at the moment...
I've used 'sh' twice within and ending words. Used the 'ch' twice within and ending words. 'K' three times, one to start, and two within. 'Th' once. And so far, just for kicks, I've plugged in two Spanish words, and they were accepted.
104 for 1417 - never thought I'd find so many in this one...Have a happy 4th everyone!
who else got points for a car?
Ugh, my limited word finding ability is exhausted for the night. Adios a todos!!
got the car but it's not in the dictionary. i don't get this puzzle sometimes. 107/4.6/1298 i'm off to see fireworks, nite
Just got the car and it bumped me up over 1000 and I think I'm done.
any other help with the 9?
i am not good at this one
I am having a hard time with that 9 letter word too!
Well, if you can't find it, maybe you are it. ;-)
Thanks Q. I think.....I have seen it starts with an N. I think my brain is fried- still can't find it. Oh well. i have a few minutes yet.
The Divine Miss
hint for the 9:
If you are not in to books you are a...
I get the you-are-it clue, but can't get past the first five letters... so frustrating!
Thank you Divine Miss. Got it. I can sleep peacefully now! ;)
