Bummer, won't take uturn. I know its u-turn, but it was worth a try.
An 8 for 45.
just got that one too
rhymes with a 7 for 48
Another eight for 40, but I can't find any sevens.
I mean the seven for 48... maybe I should go to bed.

That Qs not much use eh! 4 7s so far!
yeah, Qu is no fun :P
8 7s for me

another 8 for 40
An eight for fifty, and with that I'm going to bed. Still no 48-point seven.
now that I look closer, I don't see a 7 for 48 after all...wth?
it was 7 for 28, oops
Is this website being really slow for anybody else?
It is working ok for me.
Time for bed.

I've got 4 8s for 45,40,50,45
What point values does anyone else have for 8s?
My eights are 40, 45, 50, 50
My 8s are:
two at 40 points
five at 45 points
four at 50 points
seems to me leanto is an acceptable word
I think it's hyphenated as lean-to.
No 8's yet:(
But one of my 7's is 40 points.
3333 a lucky number
100, 1293, but still no 8's. Time to take a break. See you later.
Newish to the game -- just got my first 8 ever!
I have a lot of work to do. Only have 5 7s and 2 8s.
241 and 3406 personal highs!
Good job!! :)
anybody have any Qu words?
okay i quit 245 and 3510
Jeez, I just now hit 100 words :-P
I don't generally use the a2z word finder, but I really wanted to know if there were any Q words in this puzzle. According to that site, there are no words that contain quu, qur or qus or that end in qu that could be made from this puzzle. It's probably not a 100% definitive list at that site, but I'm trusting it on this one. :)
116 words 5.71 2216
And not a Q in sight :(
How many words does anyone have starting with I (eye, not ell). Can't find any here.
Nope, I don't have any eye-words either...
There's at least one.
I dont give an iota ;) LOL
Does anyone have any clues for the eights? I found one, but I just do not see anymore.
Jen Buckle uRp clues incoming ;)
First, some mathematics:
The 2 40-point 8s only contain letters that have a value of 1 point.
The 5 45-point 8s all contain the d, with only other letters valued at 1 point.
The 4 50-point 8s all contain the c, with only other letters valued at 1 point.
Other clues beyond that:
Two of the 50-point 8s contain the same letters, with the 3 beginning letters switched around a bit.
At least two of the 45-point 8s also contain 6 letter words (with a 2-letter suffic). Both of those 6s are for 18 points.
Not sure how to give clues to the words themselves without completely giving them away, but I'm sure others can.
This 8 is useful in the Dark ;) get you both a 7 THEN an 8 in the Plural :)
One of the 8s is a bit explosive.
one of my 8s is mentally unstable ;-)
i liked that last clue...so am i!!!
OK, just got one of the 50s by randomly trying a combination of letters that seemed like a word. It was! It sounds like a particular disease, and basically has the same meaning as said disease, but is spelled slightly differently.
Thanks for the clues. They have been most helpful :)
There are at least 2 words beginning with "eye". The second is also 4 letters, and has appeared in several previous babble puzzles. Shoulda seen it sooner.
Two of my 8s are plurals of 7s, two of them are past tenses of 6s, and three of them are negations of 6s.
You've clearly got at least one more 7 than me! :D I have one 8 that is a plural of a 7 (it was hinted at below), but none of my other 7s can be pluralized. Hmmm . . .
yesterday i swore to never play again, today i thought i' just peek at the game to see if there were any good words.... i'm hooked
i keep seeing sleuth!!!! argh
mental note to self do not try and babble and work on spreadsheet...
yep, seeing sleuth here too!
I keep trying to see stretch. :-P
i keep seeing natural as well...go figure
isn't retoto a word..i'm pretty sure dorothy did that
first time i've logged on in 6 months - i'm pleased to see the numbers of players has increased so dramatically. last time there were only about 120 players!
OK, anyone wanna swap starting letter counts? With 234 words for 3408 points (and only 7 of the11 8-letter words):
You have more than me in every category, so I'm not much help...
Found a 6th 8 for 45, another past tense of a 6-letter word.
Why can't I ever find all the eights! Does anyone, like anniem, have any advice for finding the longer words? Today's board is fund, though.
That was "fun" of course, not fund.
I haven't found all of them, but one way to start is with prefixes and suffixes. In this puzzle you've got de- re- -ed un- and -s that can be used to make shorter words longer. And sometimes looking away and then back later will make a longer word just appear to you.
Are we playing different puzzles? Someone said there are at least 2 words beginning with "eye" and I don't see a "y" in the puzzle. Did they mean "eue"?
I have 5 8s right now.
no advice from me, mommav, i'm a newbie and only have 1 eight today...and it's just a plural of my 7
No, it was beginning with I, the 9th letter of the alphabet. In this font, a capital I can sometimes look like a lower-case l, so we were just calling it "eye" so that people would know which letter. A bit confusing, I agree!
...and 14 7s.
-en can be another suffix for some words too.
And -er and -ate
Only have one A word. Can't find anymore. Only have one 8 letter word thanks to clues.
Now have 4 A words.
one of my 8s can play the piano and sing and dance and cook gourmet food and is really good at word games . . . but not necessarily all at the same time ;-D
woot got the explosive 8!!!!
...and thanks JLM too!!
I have 11 Cs. 6 Hs but you are WAY ahead of me in most of the other letters.
only 7 8s so far . . .
I would to get to 200. I am pretty close.
I have twelve O words.
I only have 8 O words.
120/ 5.11/1570. TTFN, :)
TTFN = ta ta for now?
146,5.20, 2001. That's all folks. Good night.
how many 8 words? i read an earlier that said there were eleven.... i have 6...
I have 11 8 words, but I know I'm missing one for 40 points, so there are at least 12.
mulhermujer - are you from England, or one of our 'colonies'?? TTFN, and the full thing - TaTa For Now, was a catch phrase during WWII - I think it was Arthur Askey, a radio comedian who made it popular.
Okaay, everyone hold onto their bonnets - I'm about to enter my gazillion words....
Why won't it take utero? As in "in utero"?
TTFN -- Tigger (as in Winnie The Pooh) has been saying it since the 60's in his debut appearence. It's a line he uses frequently even in the newer stuff.
the 8 i have for 40 points is the one that is good to use in the dark... the rest are 45 and 50....
224/5.17/3038 couldn't find all of the 8's
utero is latin
ttfn is also a pretty common internet abbreviation :)
onyx - I have that 8 also. But earlier Kukana posted having 2 8s for 40.
There are at least 2 for 40, 6 for 45 and 4 for 50.
Has anyone used that blasted Qu yet?
OK - Seriously, 11 C words?????
I have the fruity C word and its plural. I have the 7 & 8 letter C words, and 5 others that have the same base. But I'm completely stumped after that!
I mean, the words have to start with cid or cit, right? I don't think there are any cih- words.
So, any clues on the other two C words?
I'm still working on the H and O words. Did find a 9th O at least.
ladybug - I'm pretty sure, from looking at online dictionaries, that the Qu is impossible to use in this puzzle. Someone may well prove me wrong, but I've at least convinced myself of that. :-D
Thanks, jlm_mi...I keep feeling that my vocabulary is less each time I play this game, so I can at least stop banging my head about this one. On with the hunt!
OK, I found as many O words as have been posted so far, and all the 8s that have been posted so far.
The other 8 for 40 would be what happened to the second place contestant in a particular contest in a local fair, for example. It is a compound word.
So, I'm off to bed with 248/3774. Can't wait to see some of the other word lists in the morning!
JLM - Those are the only C words I have as well......
Thanks for that clue for that 8 letter O word. I would NEVER have thought to try those words together.... (or it's associated word)
I'm still missing a couple 8's for 45 and one for 50, but I've found 4 for 40. One is an older spelling of the word we use today; you might even use one of the other 8's at the same time. The other is an architectural term.
this has beenmy best so far, and to think i was not going to play today......
well my rank is gonna be srewed after to day im not gonna play for very long so i proly wont get my usual word score
I wouldn't worry about it; the rankings are screwed up anyway.
just to let all yall know there is absolutly no q words in this puzzle
ya u got a point the ranks are screwed up my uncle keeps raisen in rank but he doesnt play that often
yah 12 A-WORDS so far!
ok im done with a words but i found 20 so there might be more but i wouldnt count on it
1937...if I can break 2000 I'll be happy
finally got the 8 for 50!
Well, I know there are more words to be had, but I'm done. My personal best, though - 153 / 5.19 / 2114. woo-hoo!
(hi jeanette...kristin...other ovu-people...;-) )
I've only managed to find 2 8s! Methinks me is missing something!
iv got 3 eights
6 8s here
Final for today, I think...
152 words 5.26 2265
Wahey! Got a thrid 8! Completely random word I've never heard of!
I'm just getting back on so I'm sorry if I'm too late to help . . . there are 2 sets of 7/8 Cs . . . the one you probably don't have is a 16th century musical instrument that rhymes with a water storage area. ;-)
Oooh thanks for the clue
"At 07:03 pm periwinkle said...
TTFN = ta ta for now?"
whatcha got willis?
Christine - I like to called myself a Phoenician, as in Phoenix, AZ. 'Colony' is such an ugly word ( ;) ). I would think that Canada and AUS would still call themselves former colonies, just because they continue to voluntarily consider themselves subjects of the crown. I didn't know that about the phrase TTFN. Thanks for telling me :) As Ladlegul14 mentioned, I picked TTFN from T-i- double-ger-er, Tigger.
Oh the Tao of Pooh....
a little smakeral of something...
up down touch the ground...
anyone for a game of poohsticks?
Whooo - just in time, I got in my wordlist.
184 for 2604 - 6/8s and 17/7s, so far.
and i've got 5 7's and 3 8's that's my personal best..granted score is a bit low..but my brain is tired..43/582
mulher..i'm p/o'd. went to mcd's for a mcflurry..they're freakin' closed. i'm so craving chocolate. make me cookies tomorrow...(not)...
i'm outties POOF
My experience with Pooh is from when I was a child, 60+ years ago. It was the first set of books sent to my daughter by her English grandparents...But, when DD was about 4, I took her to London, and we saw the Disney Pooh - she said his voice was wrong.
TTFN... ooh and I looove Phoenix.
Oh sure, put the chocolate pressure on me...I'm such a pushover, I would probably do it. But, my kitchen is a TOTAL disaster area, that I cannot even funtion in it. I had a Hershey bar earlier, that fixed me for the evening.
I made my goal of 3000 points!
I have nine eight-letter words.
mul-sure rub it in
christine hey don't talk about my pooh like that!! LOL
