I just got an 8 for 50. Bet it's the same as yours.
yes, towards the bottom?
It won't take floren.
wow...I got 2 8's early on in the game.
An 8 for 65 ... almost didn't try it because to me it's just a city or girl's name. Turns out it has a couple of other meanings that make it a valid babble word :D
You would think I would have noticed that 8 for 65 when it didn't take floren. Thanks for the clue.
floren floren floren
i keep trying
i can't accept that babble won't accept it
and once more
I think the grid needs some more Es
Yesterday my total score was 45/417; today I have 39/556, less than 30 minutes playing.
Definitely a better grid, tonight.
I am not liking the X
I've used it three times so far
Shortseer @ 12:24 -- after most of us missed JOSEPH, last week, I think we'll all be checking out every name in the grid.
I found two 8s early on -- but now.... are there more, or any 9s??
I have 3 8's nother higher
I have two 8's and one 7. But no 9's.
I only have one 8 letter word and no nines.
I found two monetary terms that are 4 letters each.
i have 3 8's and 1 7... :) and im back ;) momentarily...
Top row only ... highest i can find is an 8 (and we all know what that was).
Very lean pickings on the vowels ... in fact i couldn't find anything starting with the i. Has anyone found an i word?
i have no "i" words.. but i have a lot of x's! im surprised, they're just coming out lol
I don't be-leeba there is a word starting with 'i' in this puzzle. At least not according to my Scrabble dictionary.
I only found 4 words with x
If only there were a G we could spell
ok, time for bed... i cant didn't find very many<eek> ;)
night all- have fun
I have 4 7's & 2 8's.
there's an 8 for 65
Found another 8 for 50
I have 3 - 50, 50, 65
Will probably look more later, but for now:
Goodmorning - not so much chat, for this grid.
There's a third 8/50? Any clues - starting letter, perhaps?
Take the other 8 for 50 and just rework it a little.
Parker - thanx I can't believe I kept looking, and didn't see that...
I have 56 (5.18) for 1028 so far and after my crap score (can't remember but only had 47 words I think) yesterday am determined to do better....
Christine you still there ??
How many clues can ypou take ;) lol
Huh - I'm here???
100 words out there Guys ;)
Okay sweetie what can I help you with ?? :)
There are 4 8s me thinx :) you have 3 right ??
I have 3 8s - 2 for 50 and one for 65.
2 starting with F
1 starting with Re
1 starting with S
Happy Hunting :)
Ooops - just reread my reply - which lacked punctuation. I meaant to say I'd found it, using the clue - I'd not seen it on my own.
I've not yet had my cuppa...
Thank you, kind friends...
Christine dont go all Quiet on us ~ you usually make me Laugh lol
Ive decided to make my confession - I'm a BABBLE addict - I woke up 30 minutes ago, and signed on before my eyes were fully opened, before I've had my shower....
Oh Lawd -- I have only 66 words - 3/8s and 3/7s....now I must look for the 4th/8.
Back soon, in my clean bod'
keep seeing clorox
haxsor is a good one - but it won't let me have it. No appreciation for modern spelling
Yup - and FELIX and FELON.
Oh, I really must go.... back soon.
felon is actually a word. I wonder why it won't let us have that?
LOL - because I keep seeing it and its not in there!!
I must have a break
Thanks for the clue on that 4th 8, I don't think I ever would have found it if I weren't specifically looking for it!
i still cant figure out the 4th 8...i think i might be babbled out after yesterday
I am doing really bad today.... maybee i am looking to hard
i can't figure the 4rth 8 out either. I'm stuck at 6's and 7's
I only have one 7 and 3 6's....really trying to hard
at least i have three 8's i guess
When you were kids, did you have the toy with a grid (like this) 25 spaces but 24 tiles, so you could move them around, to make words?
I vote we remove one of the Rs.
If you squint your eyes, a little, you can see FELIXSTOWE -- well you can if you're a little homesick for the UK.
Halloo, Marianne and Judith.
Lone girl, sitting all alone -- won't you come out to play???
I suck today. Can't even make fifty words, and only have two of the eights.
Well, that was supposed to say "I'm a lonely girl....."
Talking to myself, again.
r-f-h... what letter do your two start with?
Errr .. with what letter do your words start??
H? You have an H 8?...
I have 2 Fs, an R and an S...
Never mind, I just got what you meant :-P
cant figure out the second f
One starts with f, for 65, and the other starts with s, for 50.
got the S and the F for 65....looking for the other F
how many H words do you have?
I have 4 8's, but only 3 7's (they all end with the same 3 letters). I think I must be missing some!
cant help with the 7's I only have one....and 3 8's....
r-f-h .. I'm still searching for the second F word.... but a hint for the S word - think prefix and suffix...
I have 2 words that start with H. But no 8 letter words even with the clues.
Thank you Christine!
Periwinkle - I'm sorry if I've confused you..... r-f-h was my lazy abbreviation for running-for-home.
I don't know of any 8s beginning with H; I'm still wrestling with the second F-8
Thanks Christine for the explanation. Yes, you did confuse me. I have not found any 8's so far. I have the 6 letter word starting with F but can't see the 8 letter word starting with F.
TA DA, got the 8 letter word starting with F. It came up spelled with a capital F and I didn't think Babble allowed proper names.
yeah! I got the second F 8.
Off to look for the 4th 8
Any clues/hints for the second F8??? My brain's hurting, I think I'll call my DD to go out for lunch... perhaps I need nourishment.
You Guys LOL
One F was kown as a Nurse ;)
and the other can be found in a ROW ;)
an Italian nurse
I'm just not in the mood for this today. Too bad I already started the puzzle!!
I am not in the mood either Kristin.
I think I give up until later tonight.
61 words 5.15 1159
Well, I'll be.... I was noodling around, and found the 2nd F8
Now, I really am outta here, 'til tonight.
Happy Babbling, y'all.
i still cant figure out this F8....all I keep seeing is the F6 for 36
oh dear oh dear, damaging my brain trying to find the second f for 50 and i 'accidentally' get another 8 for 80 starting with f....
and btw clues on the second f for 50 are still welcome...
ILL SECOND THAT RE CLUES FOR THE F8 FOR 50. GETTING SQUARE EYES NOW...
so now there is 3 F 8's???????
actually i'm totally confused on what I've got and what I could have and what there is and everything. I'm going to bed. its 23.00 here.
modina - this last f word that I found is really stupid. shouldn't be allowed. its just two words stuck together that happen to follow on from each other in the grid.
found the f for 80 now looking for the 50....are we sure there is one?????
aT 10.52AM, SOMEONE POSTED THERE WERE FOUR 8'S, AND TWO BEGAN WITH f. iVE ONLY GOT ONE F AND THE REST ARE DRIVING ME INSANE.
i have four now....F's that is.....is there an F for 50 or just the R and the S?
I THINK THERES SUPPOSED TO BE AN 8 BEGINNING WITH F FOR 50. BUT IVE ONLY GOT ONE 8 AND ITS THE NURSE....
why doesnt neener work....i say it all the time....neener neener
Oh i am so confused
On the 8-front: there's an f for 65, an f for 80, an r for 50 and an s for 50
granadan, it is ok to turn off your caps lock once in a while. we can still hear you ;)
78/1285 I cant see any more
Pssst ... there can be no F-8 for 50, according to the scoring math. Hope that eases your mind. :)
Sorry fnurt - im a two finger typist! I put in my answers in Caps, and forget to take it off when posting - dont look at the screen till after Ive hit send - sorry! Wish Id not bunked off keyboard classes at school!
I have one word that starts with N. It is only 4 points. But points are points.
Clues for the F8s???
The first is a city in Europe also a proper name (it's wort 65); the second, in UK, we'd call hedgerow... and it's worth 80 points, not 50
The R8 and S8 are each worth 50 points.
Is that any help?
Just found the 8 for 50 that starts with an S.
2 N's - one for 4, one for 18
Hi Chrisine I have been waiting for you!
found an N for 10
Wow, cant find any ns, tried all sorts of combinations. I have 8 fs but not the second 8 letter for hedgerow, lots of combinations of wooden type hedges, is it another one of those ? Any clues for the r and s please ?
i can't find this 4-letter N word despite plenty of random key-punching. Which N does it start with? Please tell me before i wear out my keyboard.
There are 2 other N words i've got ... used in perfumery.
I think it should accept roxanne and roxie.
And it won't take seerex, my neopet has one of those as a pet !
The N on the bottom right. It was a guesss for me. Now please tell me which N's start your words. Perfumery does not help me.
the one under the X
Ive found the s8 but still hopelessly lost on the f8 despite having resorted to a dictionary!
oh - thats for the perfumery and the 4 letter one
actually the perfume ones can run from either of the bottom Ns
Is the perfumery one 6 letters. If so I got it. I should have found it on my own. I am intersted in aromatherapy.
I've only found one N word used in perfumery. Can't find the other. How many letters does it have?
if you've got one perfumed N, then you should have the other ;)
Just found it. Thanks
any help with the tolkien word, or the r 8 or s 8 ? I haven't made 700 yet !
Am I right that this f8 must use the fw and c?
Arrgh! Got it. i wasnt looking for something that obvious! Never heard the term over here though!
Cheers for hedgerow tip...
Hi, Marianne -- are you Babbling???
What're these perfumery words? I have the four-letter bird, but perfume??
After trying over 30 potential combinations of letters, i have FINALLY found the 4-letter N word.
Granadan, are you inUK?
Where do hedgehogs live? where do bits of paper blow, along the lanes? Perhaps you just shorten the word, in day-to-day chat??
End of my motherly questioning.
Out of the hedgerow clue, I can only get a maximum seven-letter word. What am I doing wrong?!
extract of oranges
r-f-h... Look at the beginning of the F7, for compound word (check a post @ 1:50).
The tolkein word is 4 letters for 6 points.
dimwit.... the only word I can thin of is bergamot, in Weil Antilope perfume. It make you smell like Duck a l'Orange, yummmy, but not very helpful..
Only other perfumery words I can recall are ATTAR and OTTO...
You know, there was a puzzle a while back that accepted sinh. So now, yesterday (I think, maybe 2 days ago?) and today, tanh is in the puzzle, and it won't accept it!. And yes, I am a math geek. ;)
try essential oils .... orangey essential oils :P
An aromatherapy oil, begins with ne, 5 and 6 letters is that too much help, Christine ? Don't hedgehogs live in leaf litter, paper goes in ditches ? maybe because it's 1 am I cannot think so clearly...........
Oh, I've got it! What a weird word for a hedge !
And I've got the Tolkien word - thanks !
Frankly, my dear dimwit, it was not enough clues... sometimes I'm a little thick. So, I cheated a little (?) and googled a couple of words. I got the 6letter, and there's another, very similar, that's not on the grid... and from your clue I found the 5letter.
So, I've learned another new word, today, andlooked it up, so I'll remember it next time.
Thanks for your help.
As someone said, last week - onwards and sideways.
Glad it helped, I've got some, and it smells very nice... Have you got the 8 letter r word yet ? I have the s 8 now, but cannot get the r, (or the 4 letter n) but I'll keep fiddling with the combinations for a while longer.
For the 8 letter R word, start with the 8 letter S word and rearrange a bit.
R8 and S8 use the same lettes - think prefix and suffix.
Did you mean you have the Weil perfume? OMGawd, that's the most sensual perfume I know...
Aha, I have the r word, thanks ! No, I meant the n aromatherapy one. Don't know the Weil one actually !
Has anyone found more than 4 words containing the X? It keeps calling to me, even though I can't find anymore.
Or how about words containing RR? I have 3 that are all related. Any others?
I only have 4, too. I can see loads Welsh words, but they aren't accepted. (sigh)
do you want to check you have the same 4 xs as me ?
I've got five words containing X.
No X starters.
I've got 5 x words, two of which are related...
Sure. Mine are all reasonably basic words. I have a 5 for 24, then a 4 for 11 (animal), then another 5 for 24 and its plural, 6 for 39.
Pity it won't take Xena...
Yeah, I've tried Xena more than once, LOL.
I have those X words (minus the 5 for 24) plus a 5 for 28 to be precise ;)
Ah, I have one you haven't then, I hadn't seen the plural. My other one is , er, mm,
an extra room ? It is an alternative spelling (or American ), as I would spell it with an e on the end.
I'll look for the 5/28. Dimwit, your extra room is not 5/24? I have a word that could be defined that way for 5/24. Starts with A.
Whoops - ' just so ' I gave you the clue for the 24 not the 28.
Found the 5/28. Can't believe I missed it before!
Well I've managed to crawl over the 1000.
It is 1.45 a.m.here and the cats want their supper, so I'm signing off. Nice talking to you all and good searching.
Thanks for that X help, I can't believe that I missed that extra room one!
For what it's worth:
59 words 5.07 1065
I have 5 with the x in then
They have to do with a day in April
I don't know Tolkien - oh, I know he wrote those books, but I've not read them, nor seen the films... so that's one word I won't get.
Didn't go to lunch, so I'm thinking it's time for more than my cuppa.
74 words for 1283 - maybe more, later?..
If you have a little word that you relate to whales/cetaceans then i think you have the so-called "tolkien word"
Is anyone still on? According to the boggle solver there are 5 words with 7 letters. I have 4 - 36,48,36,28 Anyone have the 5th or one for a different count?
The Tolkien word is driving me nuts!
Do you know Tolkein? It's a word for some of the servants of the dark.
what's a "boggle solver"?
There is at least one web site out there where you can put in a grid and it will solve it. It does not use the same dictionary as this game, so it may not be 100% correct, but it's a decent guide.
Anyway, you can choose the minimum number of letters when you solve it, so you can use it to determine the number of words at each letter count. You just have to be careful to not look at the word list when you're looking at the word count at the bottom!
It's usually only off by about 5 or 6 words. ...and you'd know by looking at my scores that I don't use it to get words!
ah...that's what I was wondering--was there a way to get just a word count without a list? I know there are days that I couldn't be trusted not to look at the word list...especially with some of the grids we've had lately. Thanks!
Looks like you and I have the same 7s, either that or the 5th one has the same point value as ones we've already got!
OK, I've got to get some shut-eye. Quitting for the night with
ladybug - There are people who have written solvers that will give the count without the list (or at least in a separate location from the list) but as far as I know they're not web based. And I definitely can't program well enough to make one of my own!
Some of them used to post the stats here, including total word count and points, and the number of words starting with each location in the grid. Unfortunately, haven't seen those kind of stats in a while.
But if you know a good programmer and can call in a favor . . . ;)
Oh, I don't think I'm quite at the programmer stage just yet! However, I really do appreciate it when players post their word/letter counts...sometimes mine almost match! I do find it to be helpful in getting some of the words I've over looked. Thanks for doing that tonight. : )
I can't think tonight! I don't know Tolkien all that well... i read the books a long time ago and have only seen the first movie.
i've got 5x 7s
I suspect you are missing the SECOND 7-letter T
Tolkien word ...
4 letters, starts with O
Did someone say the Tolkien word was 6-points?
That helped... duh! Yes it's 6
Huh said at 10:47am :
[quote] 100 words out there Guys ;) [/quote]
Does anyone know if that's the full word count??
I've just made it up to 100 and somehow i just can't imagine i've found everything.
Is the Tolkien word a fishy thing? I noodled letters, and got an undefined word -- sounds about right for a fantasy character.
it's a big, brutish thing that makes guttural noises.
76 for 1313 -- I guess that's it for today.... but it was a good grid with lots of (for me ) new words.
Okay, ready for a new grid...
I had that, just didn't know what I had.... Babbling thru' noodling.
