'cause either way you're good enough, and people like you, wait that's stuart.
Yep, even though I suck at babble...
I'm still good enough, smart enough & gosh darn it, people like me!!!
Aly, that quote makes you officially rock.
two 7s and an 8 now. My brain is so slow
doh! make that 2 of each
c'mon now...don't make me feel worse than I already do...I'm finding diddly squat! So no more bragging about your 7's and 8's!!!
five 7s and three 8s holy cow!
They just jumped out at me! I swear
the double ms have lots of potential ;)
Bah, I keep trying to make words that end in -ies...
3 8's 6 7's. started playing with the m's again. ;)
mm's huh? Maybe I'm overtired or I got too much sun today but I can't think of one stinkin' word with double mm's...I guess I better get myself some sort of dictionary!
just one more r and the puzzle will be perfect
2 8s, 4 7s .... once you find one you'll find the others ....
ok, I thought of one...mammary. Too bad it's not in the puzzle..
an excellent one, alymac
gracias...figures I'd think of one like that!
As a Miss Manners devotee, I'm
disappointed that "ummer" was not
finally made 1000, can sleep now. g'night all. :)
aside from all those 7s and 8s, I gotta say that this puzzle sucks. :P
Do you all use dictionaries or something?? Are you all Scrabble devotees?
Not that I'm a top scorer or anything even close to that .... I only use an online dictionary to check the words the puzzle accepts that I've never heard of ;P
you mean you see a word in the puzzle that looks like it might be a REAL word and so you type it in to said dictionary to see if you are right??
I'll type in letters that look like they might be a word. If it is then the puzzle will accept it and add to my list. Then I can click on the "?" next to the word to get the meaning.
*after trying a few more unsuccessfully...
if it makes you feel better: when i stop for the night, you can usu. multiply it by 3 or 4 and get the poss. # of words for the day. the words can be so hard to see, even when i know 'em!
But how does that help you find more words? I have one or two now that I have no clue what their meaning is.
I'm not sure I understand what you said....multiply what number by 3 or 4?
I have the greek and roman form of the same god...not many points, just a nice twist :)
sapphie that's clever!
Oh, that doesn't help me find the words. I was just saying when I use the dictionary. Sometimes people give clues here and that helps me find the words. Sometimes it's just blind luck ;)
oh i am an addict! clicked back before logging off for the night. :D
if i end the night at 1000 or 600/1200 whatever, there are usually 3000, 1800/3600 words to be found. (i generally blab them) this one's hard, so i'm not betting on over 2500...btw, where are you at now bulldog?
oh shoot eyezzz...I thought you were giving me some sort of magical idea that would make me a babble star! Oh well...back to the searching!
OH! got it....
I still can't find any more words and I'm stumped on the 7's and 8's you all found so fast.
hint: look at possible short word endings, then put in the m's, working backwards.
sorry, can't think, was really unclear - short suffixes.
Thanks for the hints but I think my brain is just too tired tonight. I'll try again in the morning I think...just sitting here staring at a bunch of letters is doing me no good!
80 words seems like a good place to stop for the night.
you're welcome. gl tomorrow then. i know the feeling: east coast here; any moment the keyboard could turn into a pillow.
86 words 4.83 1344
Wow, I'm on the west coast so YOU really must be tired!! nighty night....
I took one last look at the puzzle before closing the window and saw a 7 & 8!! Thanks 4t8!
'night to you too.
AlyMac ~ now that you found those two keep hunting in the same basic area to get the rest :)
got another 7....
How many more???
i like this puzzle! i'm getting 7s and 8s right off with no problem-if only the luck holds up!
Ok, I just got another 7 & 8. The reason I didn't see some of these is because I didn't even know they were words!
92 words 4.82 1412
one of the sevens is worth 60
which one?? hehehehe....
Rare Curious and Choice Examples of Pottery and Porcelain from the Earliest Times to the Begining of the 19th Century. (hint for the 60 pointer)
Did my hint help anyone? It is a really, really good one!!!
;) Believe it or not, I got it! Shock of all shocks huh?
thanks! It did me.
Nah, I tried my best to give it away.
Tere is another musical seven!!
Ok, I'm DONE for the evening...night all
One of the eights is also two sevens a six and a four
I haven't found anymore, I will try back tomorrow, please people post your scores so we know when to work harder.
i have 3 8's but don't see any way to make any of them into another 7 or a 6??
singular form and removing the first letters.
ohh...okay, i have that then. i was looking for more forms of the same exact word.
i have those, but the pottery thing is killing me...
google what I typed
Chaffers, William. may help also
I have a 5 ltr musical term, but can't find a 7 ltr?? Maybe I misunderstood your clue?
good grief... thanks! kpt trying to do something with -seum, though i knew that wasn't it!
don't work harder...
I have the 5 ltr musical term, too, but only by chance.. wouldn't know one if it bit me, which doesn't bode well for the 7...
missing the musical clue, too...thanks for the 2nd pottery hint though :)
I got the google clue but I gotta tell ya', I would have NEVER tried spelling that word that way :/ Thanks!!
So far a very disappointing: 41 words 4.98 777
But lots of time left ~ which could be a bad thing :D
The musical term refers to the study of playing a particular instrument, it is not a common word
That clue couldn't be anymore vague than the first one. Hmmm....will have to search harder.
one who plays in an --ist for example I play clarinet so I am a clarinettist. The study of playing clarinet would be; if there is such a term: Clarinetism find an instrument and try different endings.
duh! once you put it that way. lol. got it!
duh! once you put it that way. lol. got it
I could have spelled it for you too. For hints received I would appreciate a posting of your scores. please,
34 / 5.18 / 712
No need to work hard to beat me. Off to dreamland. Waaaaay past my bedtime. Good night!
I've heard Pianist, but never Pianism. Would have never figured that one out.
That pottery clue was brilliant!!
45 words 4.96 840
Back to work for me :)
As a music teacher I find it to be my responsibility to instruct all those I come across on any musical concept or terminology, that I know of course.
the 4's are rolling in LOL
and now no one else will have to. ;)
cr*p. I shouldn't have posted that. Sorry. I really need to go to sleep now. Slinks away.
Me inflate self.
Hah hah hah ha ha ha ha. I didn't even notice it.
For the pottery clue I worked backwards from the definition. I found the one phrase that gave a single page on google and posted it. It was pretty good huh. I won't be half that clever again.
81 / 4.85 / 1304...i'm entering the same words over and over! must go to bed! :)
hAS ANYONE USED THAT K ?
4 words start with k
2 with U
two have both
More may exist I don't know any though.
Oh heck 0 thanks bulldog!
Well I've just started with the longest words I could find (and thanks for clues in the log everyone) rather than my usual 4s, so after twelve words I have an impressive set of stats: 12/7.08/600 - (three 8s, seven 7s, one 6)
Now to look for the short words and reduce that 7.08 average! LOL!
oh my god!! i just got my very first 8 letter word!! yippee.
i keep seeing addict!!!
and actor!! I am so crap.
15 words 5.00 239
wicked i just got my 2nd 8 letter and inturn my 2nd seven letter.
54 words 4.91 975
Just a few more points and I'll break 1000 but I'm stuck.
2HOTT YOUR 3RD EIGHT IS NOT FAR AWAY FROM YOUR OTHER TWO
sorry can't give any clues but heres a suggestion shut your computer down school finishes in half an hour
Liz, best you give me clues for these *'s
Are there any websites where you can put in a _part_ of a word and it tells you if there are any words that start like that?
Try this: http://www.a2zwordfinder.com/index.html
58 words 4.90 1015
Finally broke 1000!! I'm a happy camper :) I can sleep peacefully tonight :P
68 and 1011 I too am happy
trica, like stent, isn't acceptable...
Thanks Liz.... had an appointment so got kids early today anyway... lol.
ooh! 4 k words, and 1 u with k in it. off to work happy.
thanks for the pottery clue, bulldog.
Thanks eyezzz! Helps a lot!!
OK, I have 92/4.82/1415
So, if bulldog's 1412 is correct, that means there are more than 92 words. Anyone have a higher score to post to keep me working? ;)
no, but let us know when you get to 100, eh? ;)
91 words 4.76 1271
2 8s, 6 7s, 6 6s and lots of little ones :)
However as we are only 1 word apart and several points there must be more words...
the two K and U words together any clues? like how many letters or what they start with
OK, here are the stats that I have so far. Definitely not the final puzzle stats :)
Words starting with each letter:
4 1 6 3 0
1 0 10 3 0
3 3 43 9 4
1 7 6 18 2
4 1 2 0 0
49x4, 25x5, 7x6, 8x7, 3x8
Does anyone have any n words? I can't believe that there aren't any!
115 words 4.77 1686
1 n word so far - 4 letters
pakal your just too good
Wow! OK, that's a lofty goal to work toward. LOL!
50 words 4.56 607
Hope this helps!
65 words 4.51 729
I'm confused. I have 4 K words but only one of them also has a U in it. Maybe there are 5 Ks?
One of the k/u words does not start with k.
I also have 11 Ds
1 with u 1 with k 4 letters
I don't think I'm looking at the same grid as the one with 13 As in it :-P
duh! the other k/u word was staring right at me. thanks.
Parker313 - I'm pretty sure I'm not looking at the same grid that has 7 i's in it! :D
You're right, there's actually 14 A words in this puzzle (at least).
69 words 4.57 824 .
Thats it haveinga break doubt i will find any more....
Greeeeaaaat - Thanks Justin!
4 down, 10 to go......
No doubt. I had juuuust found the 13th a word and was feeling pretty good about it too. :-p
13 a words? Gosh, I was so happy to find my four :/
58 / 4.60 / 737 ... Oh boy. Nowhere near where I'd like to be. :-P Looks like another tough one today.
There are two i-words; both are a whopping four letters.
Yeah, I also have 2 4-letter i words, but pakal has 7.
I have 3 4-letter i words.
I've got 4 i words so far, using all 3 i's ....
argh can only find 12 a's.. 1-6 3-5 the rest 4's... how many letters is the one I'm missing?
You're missing at least 2. ;)
I have only found 13. Here's my letter count for a words:
4-letters = 6
5-letters = 6
6-letters = 1
Wait - Have you found 8 4-letter a words? If so, there are at least 15 a words.
yup 8 4-letter a words. argh guess i have 3 more to find then.
87 and 1210 done for the day have fun all
ok found 3 more 5 letter a-words (one was a plural of a word I already had DUH), so now I have 15 total a-words.
It won't take 'crit' I think that's a word I've heard used on ER. Guess its short for something.
Just broke 1000 - 2 8s and 7 7s!
Ooo-oo! Got a 7 for 52! My second 7 ever :)
And an 8 for 70 (just pluralized my 7 and whopee! more points!!)
only found 16 today, but one of them was a 7 and one was an 8
Make that 2-7s and 2-8s :o)
I have only two A's. I'm looking hard. Any clues. I am proud to say I found the 'ku' word early on.
Most of the a words are on the obscure side. Might try just making things up as you go and see what happens. ;)
mul - theres a 4, a 5 and a 6 letter a-word that all have the same root word.
If most of them are obscure, then I don't feel so bad. I did find my third 7 and my second 8. Doin' pretty good :)
tanya - Thanks, I'll keep looking :)
K, I just entered an obscure looking 't' word, babbled accepted it, and dictionary.com had no idea what it was. Muito frustrado.
tanya - I got the 4,5, and 6 'a' words you mentioned. Thanks.
Ugh, I'm done - 55 words, 4.76, 820. See you in a bit Tolinya.
crit is short for haemocrit ...
Ok was gonna check and see if he was up yet but I guess you logged already...see ya! I'll work on this later when I get home..sigh
have spent waaaay too long on this! Is nearly 3 am here.. going to bed. How on earth do you guys manage to find soooo many words??
Amy - Looks like our word lists are pretty similar!
78 words 4.54 898
i think i need to swap some word with u!! lol
2 are 8s (t, c)
6 are 7s (c,k,p,r,r,t)
what am I missing? you guys are amazing at this! I'm a beginner. 2nd game ever.
there's at least one more 7 that begins with D
I'm so frustrated by the Cs. I've got 16 and I can't seem to find any more no matter how long I try.
stopping for now . . . may be back later but frustrated to keep seeing amuse, drain & other words NOT on the grid! ;-)
i need to hunt for them 7 and 8 letter words...
i need to hunt for them 7 and 8 letter words...
where is that stat person today???
I don't like this puzzle.
39words 5.09 790
back on must be loads out there still
I have 99 words...if I find what I'm missing according to Pakal's list, I'd have 119...anyone have more? This one is driving me crazy...I hate the ones where I have to just type in jibberish
101 / 4.73 / 1457 i can't take anymore right now!!
Winner are you on now. I've only been playing 1/2 hour and only found 28 words. How many do you have now?
I finally reached 1000 for the first time ever!! Still have a lot more to go though.
Must... find... one hundred... words...
120 / 4.76 / 1723
I reallly, really hope no one tells me there are more out there.
Well I am up to 54 words, 855. Need to take a break. May be back later.
I just discovered this game yesterday -- may have to curse my daughter for telling me about it. Do they ever list all possible word?
I'm completely, hopelessly stuck at 64/1068...may have to give up early on this one.
yiddish head - yes - there is a person/people who have a program that runs "stats" - they will appear in the log - I don't think they have been on lately - they tell you how many possible words, points, words starting with which letter, etc. To see all words found, u can click on archives and look at the previous day/s' puzzle/s. Was that confusing?
I'm done 65 / 4.8 / 1009 second time playing. Good luck everyone!
