I have a nosy 8 for 50 and another that gives good hints ;-)
Hey let me apologize for ryan, I gave him a buise on his shoulder for swearing a couple of days ago. Great kid usually.
oh, I gotta get in bed or the kids will rule the house tomorrow . . . there are so many words in this puzzle I've already beaten yesterday's score!
INTERNET, not a valid word? I am outraged.
(I know it's a proper noun, and I also know I just gave a way a word or two, if you look closely.)
Thanks, I appreciate it. I later realized that in my inital kidding comment of "Sure, that's what they all say," that he might have taken 'they' as not a very good 'they.' And the 'they' I meant was just anyone. So I can understand why he may have taken it all the wrong way. My bad :)
Yeah he is still mad at me for scaring him and his bumping his head. I feel terrible about it but I can't rewind time.
Time for me to hit the hay, got one 8 (thanks bulldog) and four 7's for a total of 64/749. 'Nite all.
79 words 4.75 901

I found a z word for 28
Where is Ryan?? Get in here, kid.
must...go...to...bed. I am not going to be able to function tomorrow while taking care of my 1 year old!
71 words 4.73 826
Bulldog - does your word begin with Z?? I have three containing the letter, none starting with it..
Ryan has a sister named christine is that you? yes it starts with a z.
I found the starting Z also. Random. Got two words out if it.
Christine? If you are Ryan's sister then this is uncle peeps! if not then please ignore. my z word is a country!
my z is related to corn??
Found 1 x 9 but no z word yet
I must sleep!
122 words 4.77 1339 no nine yet
I need sleep.
127 words 4.83 1612
Got one 9 & 2 8's but I am sure there will be loads more by tomorrow that I need to find.
Anyone know what happened to Lawyer-1 haven seen hin/her on the boards for a long while?
Uncle Peeps??? No, I'm Marianne's (and Judith's) sister.
142/2073 will look back later
Hi, Marianne - so many words... such sloooow fingers trying to type them into my list.
Sorry just though it might be because of christine being ryan's sisters name and you asking after a guy named ryan.
153 words 4.76 1712
And uncle peeps; I am so called because I am my nephews people's; hence I am my nephews peeps; hence Uncle peeps
Where is Ryan (yes, your Ryan) he was humming, yesterday....
he's probably at his moms house where he spends his time on ist person shooters.
What's a first person shooter??
Fear not, bull, I am still here. Just a bit frustrated over scoring here. I was 3rd. 2 others got the same point total as me, yet they each passed me. So, now I am 4th. Perhaps if I knew the rhyme or reason behind it, I would understand.
How is it that we play this game on the internet, yet the game will not take it as a word?
Good morning Christine and Marianne. Dont have time to play the game but love reading all the comments. Some day..
As i said yesterday I didn't play for a week and I moved up eighty places. I really think that the total amount of points has a bearing. So if you score 2000 points out of 4000 it is actually better than scoring 1000 points out of 1000. i actually have set up another account that I only use when I score over 3000 points. I play as bulldog and then copy over the words into my other name. I have only done it twice so I don't know if it works yet. ;)
Good morning Christine and Marianne. Dont have time to play the game but love reading all the comments. Some day..
It is a total pain, but it would be worth it I'll prpbably have to do it today.218 words 4.95 2923
Judith -- two messages, for two sisters??
There are undoubtably more but I grow weary
276 words 5.03 3857
I found a 9 for 66, sorry...
51 words 1245 points
Up with insomnia . . .
Don't have the 10 yet, but with 180/2284 I'm off to try to sleep again.
I have 3 words beginning with z, 2 for 28 points. 4 others that contain z, including one for 34.
Found the 9 mentioned below, and 3 8's worth 50 each. Also 10 7's.
And, there are at least two elements. :)
I'm sure by the time I'm back in the morning many will have broken 3000.
As fo why Internet is not accepted it is a proper noun. you don't internet anything, you use THE internet. Remember Al Gore invented it. I need help with the nine.
It has a p in it that is all i know
got it and the eight too :)
have another 9 for 54
gimme a hint I need one more point before I go to bed
begins with the a halfway the first column, second letter is n and it is a plural
and if you get it you can find at least another 2 words easy :)
thanks and while I work you should look for a seven that starts with a pen and rhymes with spinster, I don't even think it is a real word but it's worth 36
Thanks I had the root word already and it is similiar to the nine in that you could use in in the context, religious
Actually, you can get 3 more words out of the 9 for 54. :)
Have just found another 8 for 50, and one for 55. Both are plurals.
Not sure if I have the 7 mentioned here by bulldog, but will look into it.
But seriously I can stands no more
283 words 5.07 4093
Please don't give away words like that, it spoils it
crikeys the word I gave away is defined as a common misspelling. It isn't even a word. unlike pfft. which is the onomatopoeia of the expression I just gave you.
and Tasmin if you are so worried about people giving away words. hide the log
No, I like reading the comments thanks. I like to know there are long words I don't yet have.
whats the highest scoring but shortest word count?
I have a 4 worth 19
I have 4 for 19 too
I have a 5 for 34.
According to dictionary.com internet is both a proper noun and just a regular noun (improper noun???). They use this sentence:
The Internet is the largest
internet (with a small "i") in the world.
It has both versions of internet in it. Keep in mind that because you use THE something only makes it a noun, not a proper noun. ;) I use THE keyboard to input my words, but that's just a regular ol' noun.
Still, there are many words the enable dictionary should take and doesn't. Guess this is just another one.
192 words 5.16 3021
have the 5 for 34 as well
Doh! I thought bulldog said a 10-LETTER musical term meaning slow, not 10 POINTS!!!! Big difference. ;) Have the 10 pointer thankfully.
Anyone with more in any category please post to encourage me to go on! :-D
have 3x 8 for 40
yup. Time to take a brake. But I'll be back..
70 words 4.60 752
80 / 4.85 / 1055 and stuck
oh, alright then just one more seeing that its 6 for 24

been at it long then, moody-mage ?
Pentaloons - fancy trousers for people with five legs.
a good few hours. I keep having to stop and actually work every now and then.....
I WILL break the 3000 mark :)
yeah - gets in the way a bit, work does, eh?
Good one danielse!
moody_mage - I don't think I'll ever catch up to your big words! I have many more words than you, but not many more points. And you keep finding more before I can find the ones you've already posted about.
These 8s for 40 are tough! I've found thereligious one hinted at below, but that's it.
you just have to have the 'guts' to look for them ;)
This truly is a great day. First time I got over 1000 points. Yay to me. :)
I keep wanting to see nostril.
hihi got a peanuts hero and just learnt the meaning of its name^^
you can almost make 'rhinestone'
Categories: Some of these are pretty loose, and certainly some of the words have meanings outside their category.
Animals, including the cartoon dog :) - 10 plus 3 plurals (13 total)
Chemistry - 3 plus 2 plurals (5 total)
Music - 7 + 2 plurals (9 total)
Food - 8 + 1 plural (9 total)
Oops - Just found another musical term and its plural.
*sigh* I've been trying to find the a-n- 9 letter word for ages, and suddenly realised I've already got it
is the 9 letter word that start AN is it animal, vegetable or mineral
Its root word is a 6 for 18. You can add a suffix to get an 8, then pluralize to get the 9. You can also pluralize the root word to get a 7.
Found a 5th 8 for 50 points.
Have 6 x 8 one for 40 four for 50 and one 55 if thats any help 200/3006
So far, the 8s that have been listed are 4x40, 5x50, 1x55. If anyone's got more, I'd love to hear about them! I'm guessing there are more out there.
ronin is a word!!! damned dictonary...
There are 11 8-letter words, so you are missing one.
Thanks lawyer-1. Do you know what point value?
Can't help you with point value. I should have said that I have 11. Perhaps there could be more.
i have 4x 40 6x50 & 1x55 for 8 letters
LOL!! a perfect set to finish on!! 3 words revolving around the blue movie trade
mage - There are actually 5 words in that series, including one for 7 letters, if it's the one I'm thinking of. Are you British? Had to look up "blue movie trade" on yahoo.co.uk to understand what you meant!
Yep I think I have all 5 of those now and yes I'm British. Explains why I'm doing this instead of working ;)
...what's the blue movie trade?
Okay, time to call it a day
205 words - 5.32 - 3623
wow....been plaing this for a few days...got my first 8 letter word!
Iget excited every time I find this Final Fantasy X-related word, even though it doesn't mean what it did in the game.
(Don't exert yourself, it's only a 4/5 letter word.)
Apparently "blue movies" are adult movies in the UK.
Wow moody_mage! With 40 fewer words than me you've got 12 MORE points! You must have ended up with lots of 6 and 7 letter words as well as the 11 8s and 2 9s. Good work!
jlm....bulldog already has in excess of 4,000 points. You need to try harder!
Oh, I know I'm still pretty behind on points, LOL! I'm just amazed at how many more high point words there are. Seems that probably bulldog doesn't even have them all. ;)
does anyone have the 6 for 24 gland?
Have 13 6's for 24, but don't think any of them is a gland.
I don't, but I've been out most of the morning.
I do Riff
No gland here :)
Never mind, I do have it!
i have the gland.
finally broke 100 words
*waves * hello to Riff !
Now, I know I'm not the only one finding that hilarious...:P
erk...the gland thing...
internet isn't a valid word?! please!! :D
210/2903 im done
Just got the gland, thanks :-P
Yikes, what a great board! Can't stand I have to actually work and can't play today. Hi to anniem!
ooh :), i found a great cornmeal word and broke 2000. off to work with 1 9, and am done for the day.
have fun, alll.
hey, mommav, sorry you can't stay around and play today. you've gotten me totally hooked!
No 'hoopy'?! Nnnngghh!
My highest score yet! I know there are a ton of more words to go but this is a major milestone and I haven't used any hints yet!
I just now got that 4 for 19 :-P
I KEEP SEEING ENTROPION
I've seen honey all day.
Is there REALLY a 4 for 19? I can't get the math to work for anything but "invalid" words.
OH HECK IT WONT TAKE ANNOINT !!!!!!!!!!
check your spelling ;-)
And I think I'm on the right track with the 19-point word now. Haven't gotten it yet but figured out wht to do ...
yup, got it.
Still stuck on the silly 9-letter word, though.
BEREKAH = UR A STAR...
okay, got the 9-letter 54-point word. And am ready to go hit my head on a wall.
I haven't got the 9, & I know there;s load more words in there, but I'm done for today. 122/5.02/1899
I have both the nines, not doing so well with the eights though.
I need more hints on the 9 letter word. I just do not see it. I think I'm trying too hard.
There are two nines. They both seem vaguely religious to me.
Got the 9 for 54 and the 3 other words that go with it!
Read the posts. Someone misspelled it.
thanks! you know, i actually had the base of the 9 letter one already...i need to pay better attention
Yay, just broke 4,000!!
262 / 4011
This is a record score for me. :)
*whine* I hate when I get to the point of trying random letter combinations to see which ones are words.
wOOt i had the 21 highest scoree yesterday and im 14
Hey Ryan-- glad you're back with us.... have you finished all your homework, before you start playing??? (voice of someone's Mother, speaking).
theres a 6 letter word for a character off of the peanuts comic strip worth 33 points
omg christine first of all its summer and second of all u sound just like my sister her name is christine to she moved out on monday and she lives in corvalas cause she is going to go to OSU
btw how well did u do on yesterday puzzle christine
Corvalas or Corvallis?
to tell you the truth im not realy shure its the one in oregon
No, Ryan, this is not Sister Christine but your new 'auntie', who misses having a child to boss....
In a moment's madness, I cleared my desk, and no longe have yesteday's paper..I use a browser, and can't access the previous days figures... but I think I didn't do too well, by the time I got home, it was almost time to change the grid... but then, of course, I found a gazillion words, when it was too late to enter them.
Oh, found the paper, still in the wastebasket.... apparently only about 65 words for 693
got to 189 - and running out of guesses now
Hi Christine, this is you little sister.
Marianne - how're y'doing?
I've been babbling since I got back from the doctor's office - I'll email late...
Please someone explain why it wont take internet. it is in the dictionary
Hi Christine I'm fine had Charlie all day so I think i need something strong.
Don't have much time to play but will do the best I can.
not gonna play today unless a miracle occurs..just wanted to make sure the babysitter was playing nice!!
Happy solving!! Looks like there are still plenty more I am missing.
I have 12 As...
...but other than that, you have way more than me for every letter (except I do have the 2 Ys.
Tolinya -- if you sign-in, won't it affect you overall ratings, even if you don't enter any words, since the rating is the mean aveage for the past 30 days??? Sometimes I look at the grid, amd decide not to sign-in.
Remember, if you cant say something nice (ie.enter some words) say nothing??
Christine - That might account for why my ratings plummetted while I was gone... There were a couple of days right before I left that I checked in, posted something or other and then didn't enter any words.
ryan still there? try to beat my score.
283 words 5.07 4093

Wow, that's impressive bulldog!

YAY! Broke 2000 points FINALLY!
Yeah ryan i saw I didn't play I wrote some notes to you then and a few today but unless you read the whole list you probabley missed them. How's your noggin.
I got a tonne (hint) of poiunts so I am using my other name today. this is uncle peeps.
Goodluck people this is a high scorer And i have to go to band practice at UNLV soon. Ryan You are the man.
he teaches band in las vegas
I have the eight-letter animal, and the two eights associated with the nines, but no others. Who wants to give me hints? ;)
i think i am pretty much stuck at 156 words
Oh, speaking of rank, I found out why I dropped 40 places while I was gone. My husband was home for a couple of days and he logged on and just played for a little while b/c he thought that anything he could score for me would be better than a Zero.
Men :-P Just kidding!
I thanked him for thinking of my scores and then explained how the scoring and ranks work. It was pretty funny!
there's an 8-letter word that is the plural of a 7 which is a compound of a 3-letter and 4-letter word
if that made any sense :)
wow im actuly gettin bored only cause im tired and thats causen me to have quite a bit of trouble

i was never looken for a fight i just like to read what other people say so i was just tryen to get some one to start a conversation
can i get some hints for those nines?
theres another 8 for 50 thats characteristics of rabbits
How many z words are there? I only have one.
one of the nines is what you might call those who ask for forgiveness
Nekoyasha - I can only hope you're refering to National Associaton of Marlon Brando Look-Alikes -- because even to consider the alternate is, frankly, sickening to me.
I've a warped sense of humor on a lot of things, but....
got any more hints on the 9 thats doesnt help to much
yes christine i belive she is refering to that well shes refering to south park any way
Also how many Y words? I only have one of those also.
There are 3 Z words...
I have 2 Y words. Someone with a nice high score listed their word totals a little ways down the chat log, if you want to see their totals.
one of the nines starts with R
...it was at 5:13pm, if that helps find it :)
Thanks modina! I had the 6 but not the 8 or the 9. I think I was sleepy this morning.
Is it bedtime yet Ryan ? :p
dude i dont have a bed time and its only 716
what's the highest 8 count so far? I have 6 but I'm sure others have more since I"m only at 181/2755
i only have 4 8's
i only have 3 8s at the moment but a ton of 7s
i have 6 8's too and i'm only at 2187, so i'm no help...sorry
I have 6 8s
I have 16 7s.
can i have another hint about the 9 that starts with "r"...i don't have that one
I have 9 eights, but I think someone said there are at least 11.
oh, i think i got the 9 starting with "R"...is it worth 66?
Wahey, finally broke 2000! The 9 I have begins with R and is worth 66, so I reckon that's the one!
The 9 that starts with R that I have is 66.
nice...i had the 8 the whole time. ijust forgot to put an "s" on the end!
neato is not a work?
Neither is leanto :-P
Just got over 2000 points for the first time ever thanks to the vegetable that makes you cry! (and its plural)
FYI, NAMBLA is not just some thing from South Park, it's real :o
OK. I know I haven't found all the words, but I have my highest score ever and it is almost 11pm. Bedtime for Bonzo. See ya on the flipside.
oh, he's gone, NM
i nedd hints for more 8's
I still haven't broken 2000, I suck today
trying to get to 200 words.....only 22 to go
I'm just 23 away - so close, yet so far away :-P
I'm 11 away from 200. What's your point score Parker?
178 words 4.98 2625
I know I'm missing several of the 8s and 9s.
I am too :(
I only have 3 8s and 2 9s so I know a bunch more points are just *right there* so I need to get my behind in gear!
At 12:18 am fixitfmly said...
I have a nosy 8 for 50 and another that gives good hints ;-)
do you have those? and the two assoc with the 9s? bulldog gave a hint on an 8 for 50 -- animal with antlers
Thanks, I was just going back down through the log and writing all the clues down I could find!
I have the 2 8s associated with the 9s and the animal, am still working on the other clues!
Got the nosy one - I had all the other words that went with it, but not that one!
whats the other 9 start with besides the 9 for r
There are clues for it, including starting letter pretty early on in the chat log...
I am at
186 words 5.03 2691
I *must* get to 200 and/or 3000.
I need to work on some 8's
I know, I can just see me getting to the 200 mark and then just being a few points shy of 3000...
Of course it is also almost midnight here!! This game is bad for my sleep!
It is bad for my sleep too. They end at 10pm for me which is fine but then I want to get a head start on the new one and stay up too late and get none of my other "hobbies" done.
Just found a flower that starts with P. Can't believe I missed it.
I must be blind because that just lead me to an animal that starts with P.
Getting closer and closer to that 200 mark, aren't you?!
I've just got 14 more to go here.
8 to go.
I am too lazy to check my list so I keep entering the same words.
same here. that's how I know bedtime is fast approaching too....
got 201 going to bed now
OK. I'm done.
187 words 4.99 2757
I'm just staring at the same non-words over and over and not making any progress. Best of luck to those still on :)
Made 200 now I need 89 points
A friend called to tell me I over-reacted... I know nothing about South Park... only found out about the Marlon Brando thing from dictionary.com
So, my apologies - and I won't gird up, to stone Bulldog's wife.
230 words 5.05 3284
i was hopen to do better but i jusst cant do it. can u blame me im only 14
how is everyone else doing to finish up this puzzle?
What is this bloody 9-letter word, beginning with R.... and is that the one that's something to do with rabbits??
Not bad ryan, I'm 10 years ahead of you & 800 points behind you!
think of religion...asking for forgiveness.
i couldnt find either of the 9 letter words :(
Well, I broke 3000, not by much though.
Jayfeg - I was looking for a rabbitty thing.... and the forgiveness- I forgot to add an S....
Closing with 185 for 2933
I have a 4 letter rabbit but that is it. I am misisng alot of 8's.
the rabbit thing is worth 50 points and is 8 letter
And thee's how many 7 - 8 - 9 letter words??
and tons of 7s
both nines are religious in nature one begins with a the other with R both are plural and have shorter root words
