Blast! It won't take zuppa. A little Italian never hurt anybody.
Has anybody used that Z yet?
i've lost my obsession, so i'm just casually lookin'. have one short word that starts with z.
once - a 4 for 13
I used z :) I'm new to this. You folks trade words for words?
alas, "zemstvo" isn't in the puzzle.
doh! I have that short one now
& neither is prelude...
that would be using the same e 2X
well...i meant too bad the i isn't an e. ah well.
I would like that too...
how many 7s so far? I have one
and two 6s
2 7's 4 6's
will play more tomorrow, stopping at 53/4.57.628. g'night.
make that 3 and 5. see y'all.
(my apologies..from reading the chat, it looked like people were trading for words)
Has anyone else found the 8 letter word? (and I think there may be a second one, but I'm getting tired)
Curses! Foiled again! It won't take redrum. Where's the second R when you need it?!
And I don't mean re-drum, as to drum again.
Man I suck but in my own eyes, I'm on fire here lol
I got a 5 letter word using the z but can't find the 4 letter word :/
it won't take pilate!
I have 3 sevens.
This one's a stinker!

I've noticed that in the past few grids, there were words like...anal, arse, fart, rump, shat, etc., etc. Is it just me, or is there a theme going here?

Bull, I am back.
What's your score so far Lawyer?
I haven'r even broken 1,000 yet. It's a Friday thing.
I seriously don't think the rankings work. Mine hasn't changed in days?? The whole things seems unchanged??
I can't even spell 'haven't'. Gonna be 1 of those days.
Aww, come on, spill. A bad day for you is a good day for me ;)
Presently, as I said before, I am under 1,000 points and/or words.
At long last, I broke 1,000. To all my friends and fans, I would like to thank them for sticking with me thru these hard times.
I knew you had it in you ... i never lost faith :)
Feel free to bask in my glory! ;-)
Wow - I found a 7 for 72 points!
Oh, I'm not the first. I see Bulldog found it already.
eye....the salt is no good for you.
Try them with zatar .... yum :P
zatar is not in the dictionary;ergo, I can't use it.
I found an 8 for 60!
where are all my Hoodmom friends? *pout*
the 7 for 72 can I have a clue please
mellow....check my 6:51 clue
Shhhhhhhhhhh Minski everyone will want one ;) :p LOL
not sure if it will help but will look thanks
oooh! Just got the 7/72! Thanks for the clue =) (I can't believe I missed it, though!)
I just cant see it (sulks) grin
mellow....keep trying....it's really twisted in the grid.

dunno really when I was young I used to have a cb (remember them lol) anyway my name was marshmellow as I used to love them anyway at the grand old age of 33 I have mellowed so now like the name mellowmasher (i am slightly mad hehe) anyway will keep looking thanks
I am from the Uk btw guess most here are from America???
Thanks lawyer! I just got the 7/72 also!
Ooooo how come everyone else can see it ( sits in the corner sulking)
Iam in the corner with you mellow. I can't see it.
thanks I dont feel so stupid now is it an easy word?
I can't find it either... what does it start with?
I gotta go now but will look back later just in case anyone would like to leave some clues (grin)
Alright, just broke 1000. I have three sevens, but not the 72-pointer.
I keep seeing pervert
An 8 for 60pts and three 7s - but not for 72pts; 80 words for 1041, unless I can get back this evening.
Is ZATAR an in-word - not in the grid, and I'm not 'in', I guess...
I've done 3 puzzles in a row, but haven't made it into the rankings...
the 72-pointer can really twist you up
Well Im standing on my head and cant see it *pout* lol
Hmmm wonder where Lawyers salt fits in *ponders* need some brain candy I think ;)
109 words 4.83 1679
Ten seven's, one 8 so far
Found the eight... still looking for the 72 point seven though.
113 words 4.88 1775
the 72 pointer is good with beer....
this grid is making me hungry...
Well I have eight 7s, including the 72-pointer, but I can't see the 8 anywhere! Is it one of those compound words again?? Or something obvious?
the 8 is made up of 2 acceptable (by the game) 4 letter words (not naughty ones).
Can anyone supply us with some hints for some of the 7s? I only have 2.
make that 3...............
make that 4............I'm on a roll!
Most of my 7s are related to 6s or 5s, with a suffix; two are things to eat; one is a prefix added to a 4.
Woohoo.. I found my first 9 ltr word. I feel special.. LOL
Nevahmind! I can't count. No wonder I suck at this game. LOL! It's just an 8 letter word.. BTDT.
So, now I feel stoopid. LOL
isn't it amazing how you suddenly see a word you've been searching for for hours :S
I feel dumb for not seeing the 72 7 right away - my little boy was eating nothing but those yesterday. :-)
beer? salt? food? *hopelessly confused over this 7*
hi auntie christine it is hannah i am staying at nannys have you found that 72 pointer
duh .... got it :S
the 7 comes in hard and soft varieties. think of them all together: beer, food, salt, twisted, and it should make sense
and for all the UK people .... its an American thing :P
Got to get packing for the weekend so I am done at...
84 4.69 1164
I thought they were continental food !
Never liked them much though, too hard and bland.
oh! maybe you're right .... I don't know :S we just don't have them here much
I prefer the soft kind, warm with a bit of butter.
found a few more

someone claims that they got a nine? I'm not sure I believe them. Someone said the same thing yesterday and they didn't.
I have two words with 'z' in - are there any more ?
There are at least five words with z and one that starts with it.
Oh, they couldn't count and I cant read so it was only an eight.
Ooh I so want to put in 'apple' ! Anyone found a word with 'pp' in it yet ?
I so want to spell mullet
I think I have figured out the rankings. The people who run this game only count the grids that they themselves do very well on. That way they can find themselves high up in the rankings. That way poor performances don't effect them and your success have no bearing.
anybody broke 2 thousand yet?
Hello all - I sent off a request to Babble about adding some more words to their acceptable list. Babble itself does not control the acceptable word list. Babble uses Enable dictionary. So what Enable has, goes. But at least we tried. I've read through the clues and figured out the yummy 7. I used to eat those at swim meets when I was younger. They are the perfect inbetween events food.
I'm close but I'm pretty sure I 'm not gonna make it.

Hey, has anyone here read the book "Word Freak" by Stefan Fatsis? If not, I highly recommend it. Its about competative Scrabble players. Very interesting world that I had no idea existed. Reading it made me realize how few words I really know.
I keep wanting to spell muppet.
haven't heard of the book, but i've seen scrabble club players get pretty competitive. never even heard of them until i lived in the city.
I'd already been told they used the Enable dictionary, which I have never heard of before. Perhaps we should put in a plea for a link to a better dictionary ? Such as Oxford ?
Any clues for the 'z' words? I got the food and the one that begins with z straight off, but despite all sorts of guesses I have'nt got any more. Not going to make 1000 tonight, (yawn)
haven't scrolled down to see the foody one, but you can get a couple if you think of the u.s. commander-in-chief(s).
*not to leave out any other country's commander, just don't know offhand which have the same name for that office.
65 words, 4.45, 772. I'm done. I cannot see anymore words. I very interested to see everyone else's list manana. Hasta luego a todos.
4t8 - US CinC -- LUZER??

Christine ~ zatar is a middle eastern spice.
Thanks - I was trying to find it in the grid....
Sorry about that.
hey, a 5 ltr using z is a car rental name...34 pts
Their commercial came on tv, just as I read your post.
Glad I could contribute for once. :) *sigh*
OMG! I just broke 900!!!
One word beginning with Z, and three (?or four) containing the letter -- are there more?
