POAS anyone? lol
ROFLMFAO I seen that one straight up...had a giggle lol
anyone who is TTC knows about POAS!!
I didn't see POAS right away but I saw WTF
a 7 for 52
too bad we can't get points for that...
I can't see nothing over a 5 :(
*is not TTC and WTF ????* Are we doing pregnancy tests here?? Be a little kind and thoughtful people to those of use who have no idea what you are talking about.
WTF is what the f*ck just a little humor
alimaya what are you talking about??
there is a seven for 28
What's the big deal about using acronym's. Chill.
nobody has done any recently
Yeah!! Found a 6!!
angry people. this real babble?
I'm talking about the use of abbreviations and there being no explanation for those of us new here.
How many points for that word? LOL
alimaya- it's references from other lives, not babble. "TTC" is "trying to conceive", as in "have a baby". These days, when you TTC, you ""POAS"- pee on a stick... which is to take a home pregnancy test (it's a stick, you pee on it), to see if you were successful. "POAS" is a letter combination available on this board, and some those who are or have been TTC'ing saw it and recognized it.
does that help at all?
i still haven't found any 7's.
is it a special kind of stick? i gots lots o sticks in my yarrd!
It does help, but it doesn't. I understand about the whole thing of pissing on a stick and trying to conceive, but I really don't understand what it has to do with what we are all doing right now.
a six for 36
Basically someone saw TTC and POAS in the puzzle. They just made a comment about it. That's all.
we're not doing anything. except peein' on sticks.
I have two sixes for 18 each
peeing on things is a fun and that means it is also fun to talk about. that is what it has to do with what we are doing now.
Thank you for explaining.
I think that a lot of people who play babble also take part in a TTC message board...Ovusoft
were were just having a little lighthearted fun...sorry to have ruined your party...
if not, the crossover potential is stupendous!
Tommy- I hope to heck you aren't peein on any of those sticks from your backyard....
We have to have something to keep our minds off TTC.
uh. no. i swear. i'm bein good. i swear. yes.
60 words 4.23 498

I could really kill the person who told me about this game - I am so hooked! And yet I'm very, very, very bad at it.
But... I got a 33 on this one! I'll be so depressed when I see how many thousand points somebody else ends up with... :\

70 words 4.21 561
Still hunting sixes

hmmm...I too recently found out about this game...and by my previous post, you can tell I'm not so swift either!
Woot! 100 / 4.41 / 948
how do you veterans find so many words so fast??? It just boggles my mind (pardon the pun). :)
Atalante ~ That's great!!! Keep going, see if you can break 1000!!
I'd like to see the stats...
104 / 4.45 / 1016
and now I can guarantee I won't see another word all day *sigh*
30 more words than what I'm seeing ;)
(with 10 6's and 1 7 if anyone's interested)
I don't think I've ever been "ahead" of other people before! But lets just wait till bazooka and lawyer get on ... then we can all feel inadequate again :P
Good point about the others coming on eventually :) I'm taking a shopping break. Maybe I'll find those 6ers when I get back ;)
52 words 4.40 500
alante is kickin my male tushy
80 words 4.55 827
why does it matter that your a male?
cause tushie is a girlie werd. kiester is the male one.
ahh I see
Heh - 107 / 4.42 / 1039
Now I'm off to get ready for an early flight, and I bet when I check back into babble much later today, my score will seem wee. Ah, well. It's all about perspective, I guess.
I just can't see any more words.
62 words 4.44 613
115 / 1103 need a break now

Oh well another day another Play! ~ Back to the Gri'Nd ;) we playing nice today ??
123 / 4.45 / 1211
I swear the Rankings are the Greatest puzzle of all!! <scratches head> cant understand how Genral Vanya went down to 47 spot though 2nd in yesterdays Grid :O :O nd lil moi goes up one in the Rankings yet only got 9th place ??
Not that I'm complaining you understand *wink* LMAO!!
*reads log* hmmm see the A Party List is not around yet ;) :p LOL
72 words 4.40 702
Stopping there.. I suck! LOL!
rankings give much consternation I agree. I score very high, last two weeks I have been in the top fifteen, several times get perfect score!! Yet I am hovering around 131> suggestion to go zenlike, want for nothing, Nirvana-like bliss overcomes. Rankings not matter, only beating others in day to day, most important to beat Lawyer person, though said person very talented and polite.

done for night, please post own effort so I am forced to try harder.
148 words 4.59 1690
Hey, bull....I noticed that you were assuming yesterday. Might I assume you now know why one must never assume?
Bull, calling me polite can ruin an attorney's reputation! ;-)
Never Asssume ;) as it makes an
MK -- are you out there??.
So far, I have nine 6s,nothing higher..
Time for a cuppa, then I'll try to expand on some of these words - but don't you just loooove the upper right corner??
106 words for 1016 points..
It must be a slow day for me. I haven't broken 100 word nor 1,000 points yet.
Back from a very successful shopping trip but still can't seem to find all these darned 6s or 7s :/
2 7's, 23 6's
185 words/ 4.58/ 2101 and I think I'm done.
Pakal, I'm impressed!
23 6s???!!! i'm either blind or completely stupid :O
Found two sixes but now it's nap time :P
77 words 4.26 636
zillion 4s & 5s
Found 7 sixes so far...brain hurts from seeking sixteen more!!
23 6's!!! eeeeeeek
Here is a breakdown by letter - hope it helps... especially and we seem to be lacking the stats postings for a few days now.
Meant to say - this is a breakdown of the words I have found, not of all the words that can be found.
there's at least 7 g's
aww it won't take spondyls :(
Ta Atalante, just for 2 more G's now (total of 8)
90 / 4.37 / 817 ... I'm going off for a break now. Dang, I don't know how you guys do it!
117-1119 not an easy one
154 / 4.52 / 1616
If nothing else, a good puzzle to hone your ability to spot "this looks like it might be a word so I'll type it" words.
anyone know where to find the stats for this puzzle?
They haven't been posted today.
where do they get the stats from?
Not sure, I think it's a custom computer program but don't really know.
anceps -- please call home -- we miss you (and your stats).
Finally found a few 6ers .... only 18 or so go :p
I'm stuck. Any help with some sixes or sevens?
97 words 4.35 897
I'd like to break 100 or 1000 but I'm not sure it's in the cards (or tiles :p) today :D
Stuck at 96 words. If I break 100 I will be happy. Many 6's to find.
none of my six letter words are working lol
A clue for 7 - pick a number and add to it.
There are some geological words in here (7 & 6) - being a geologist helped me with them.
There's a 6 with a fruity theme.
there are??? hmmm 4 years in a geology dept didn't help me much then :P
One is kinda pretty, the other a bit mucky. ;)
*sigh* got them now I actually look :S
I got the pretty one .... hmmm on the yucky one ....
there's at least 3 chemicals - well, I've got three but I'm pretty sure there are more in there somewhere
100 words 4.34 911
Time to call it a night. Good luck!! See you on the flip side.
I don't have total point values or character counts.
Arg, 41 words, 4.27, 314. And that's pretty much all I'm gonna get today. I don't think I'll have access to the Net until the next puzzle. I am proud of my one 'u', my one 'g', my one 'o', my two 'h's, and my two 'p's. And I have one 6er. Although, my top scoring is a 5 for 20. Wee-hoo. Laters!!
Hi, its my first game! I've got 113 for 1078 points. Only 10 6 pters and no 7's so looks like I'm missing some good ones. I'd quit but I want to find the 189 others have... getting tired of no luck with my guess-a-words :)
136 and 1348 Im done for good
Thanks for the stats, statsonly. :)
How long do you all spend doing this? I only play on my lunch break at work, but you've got me wanting to play all the time just to see if I can get my word count that high!
138/1479. ok I really must do something else now but I want to find the other 6's and 7's. Got 14 and 1.. also trying to find more A words - have 4 baffled how there can be 7.
didn't realize phylo [dough] is spelled phyllo.
finally I got another 6- the pretty one I think
It won't take 'neato'
got the fruity one too booyah!
I have 2 6-letters for 18 pts each, but one of my 5-letters is 26 points.
any more hints on the fruity or mucky ones? Got the pretty...
why does it take retag but not retop
Just read lawyer-1's comments, hah,but I was right you did have more points. I should have gone into law, I actually considered it but lawyers were considered the devil when I was entering college.
Hi Tolinya - u still on?
Just wondering...I keep popping on here and finding a word or two, then going back to work. :(
Can the letters be shuffled
yeah this puzzle is depressingingly hard (is that a word??)
Told Jeff about Robert falling down the stairs..he's gonna call CPS...hahah!
probably won't finish this one..need to go to swim lessons and then meet you guys for dinner. toodles all..maybe i'll play better tomorrow i'm in the office...sigh.
OOOH I've got 13 n words and the grid only lists 12.
i have 15 f words where they said there were only 12
Actually, there are 19 f words listed in the grid - 7 from the one on the left and 12 from the one on the bottom.
i didn't add them. i've been keeping track of which one i used for each word.
Only have 70 words, doesn't look like I will find any more.
no "high-5" but do have 2 6's for 27
gad, i feel dumn/b, lol. i do have that 5. never mind.
and i have 24 p words
Thus spaketh lawyer-1: Trust ye not in the stats lest ye be woefully misled.
trueur wors not be spakest thus
ok my brain hurts... going to bed!!
94 words 4.40/ 938

babble doesn't like southerners -- doesn't take 'entar' as in 'he ate the entar thing' ;-D

I found 12 'v' words.
Unfortunately, none of them are in this grid.
