33 for 495 - only one 7, so far - but there's at least three birds.
40 words for 665. Two sevens and a few sixes.
31 for 502. 12 6's, 1 7.
any advice for the Z???
This grid looked so promising on very quick first impressions *sigh*
have learned about 5 new words or so...done for the night at 48/4.85/715. oh, found a 2nd 7; it starts with a w.
i'm off to bed...in case anyone is
interested, i have 30/5/525
this puzzle starts strong and then, like the others say, it tapers off...
the last three have been very weak
If the puzzle don't get better quick people will lose interest
34 / 574; 2 7's, one for 40 one for 52... interested?
Dont have the 7 for 40 any clues please
I've just got up. Must have my morning tea first. back later
I too have need for the 40 pointer
its an added letter to a 6 for 18
now i must go...
oh ok ...
think animal skins
actually where they take them (the animal skins)
now someone drag me away from this keyboard!!!
Animal Liberation advocates
I only have one 6 for 18 and it deals with catching fish. I've never seen a fish skin coat
Got it thanks for the clue
ConXshun thanks you gave me a word with your last post
t is a good start, anyway
I had the current tense but not the past
Does it use an h or a w or a y
I have 5 6's for 18 and none of them are to do with fish *frowns*
Think how you you catch a fish on a comercial sailing vessel. you don't use a pole. one who uses the afore mentioned method may be called one of these.
Oh! I do have it LOL ... I totally wasn't thinking of it from that perspective. Very unusual for me ... usually I think of everything in terms of fish
57/820 I know there must be lots more but I cant see them
I still can't find the fur one, is that a bad clue or am I blind?
mellowmasher got it.... ;)
dont think hairy......
I resent being called hairy.
and I've just got your 6 for 18 - my 6 for 18 is an anagram - add one letter and hey presto!
I am thinking darn it
now that is a good clue
errr, jeff, erm, sorry - tis not an anagram. I just realised. (Its early morning still for me...) but swap the consonants and you cant miss really...
The T7 for 40 -- think leather!!
Tis ok I got it
I have two 7s, each for 40 points... but one for 52 points - oh, I knew I shouldn't've come back here.... I was blissed out, reading my book, and now....
I found another 7 for 40 in the same corner and having to do with being third
and a fourth seven
dont follow being third, and now another 7... hmm - any more clues?
zeros and ones is a programing language called what
space shuttle coming home
each of the last three posts are for different sevens
Oh, I'm so thick -- I do have the 52pointer... I just wasn't paying attention.
Has anyone found anything higher than 7?
Got the third thing...
brain not working for the other two clues...
maybe need breakfast.
but it is 2:30 a.m.
is the knife sharpener also connected to what you can do with appetites??
no no its 11.30 am here , and in the log it tells me its 4.30 am there.... some people have been up all night - or ? and you're at 2.30?
29 words 5.28 562
This puzzle isn't giving enough, I feel that I am the only one trying to make this work between us. I'm not saying it's over, but I think I need somme space Babble. I'm glad I used my low ranking name. I worked too hard to give up eighth place. Tomorrow had better be a higher scorer or I will become dissatisfied.
I think the puzzle runs on central time. I'm in Las Vegas which is Pacific time and you are in Europe somewhere. The netherlands by your accent perhaps.
yes the seven could be said to have to do with the appetite ConXshun
it is a tricky one. and I promised myself I'd have a day off today...
if there's no more (easy) clues around I'll go and have breakfast, listen to some music I've got waiting for me;) and possibly return later...
Accents are not so easy to ascertain through typing.
ah I got the sharp thingy then. Just this space thing... oh dear!!!
Good accent eh?
It's actually north UK accent poshed up a bit for when i lived around London.
it is a prefix on a 5 for 16
Ok - but i've got loads of 5 for 16's!!
got it - obvious really. Thanks for the clue. my brain is definitely grinding to a halt.
The newest 7 - is that soemthing to do with being third and/or something to do with computer language -- well, there I'm lost..
How about another clue - first letter, or point count, please?
I am taking a break - honestly! 43/5.12/773
U Guys got the 6 for 33 points ??
Rather hit me as soon as I looked @ the Grid BUT then I am in the Antiques Bizzo and sell it often....
Tis a Metal used in olden Days ;)
59 words / 4.97 / 924
Having a break ....
Huh - yes, that was one of the first I found -- now, I need to find the 4th 7, so I can get back to my book....
Think Shower time again Christine lol for a Cool 52 pointes...
Just add the H ;)
Just starting here
22 words 5.14 391
Just a quick glance between shower and breakfast. Got the metal, Huh. How many words in this grid?
Christine - clue for the 52 - an appetite getting soggier. I also want to get back to my book - rotten addiction.
A mere 80 words today ConXshun
ND i could not help see the last one when checking SOoo will put it here to keep things fair LOL
thanks Huh,knowing there;s only 80 makes me feel better. And i got the 'blood' thing already - shame you didn't see another one ;)
anybody done anything with the z?
Huh and ConXshun -- yes, I have that word - I was thinking HONE, when I saw it, but your clue is closer to the word, itself.
When I started on this board, I played only 30-45 minutes, then another 30 in the evening.... the last couple of days, I think I've been here for 24 hours... I think the rotten grids gave us a lot of good chat.
I'm rereading Walter Mosley's books, so tomorrow I'll be here for only an hour.... then I'm gone 'til the evening.
This addiction is.... addictive, I guess.
How is it possible I still have only 41 words for 681, it seems I've worked at this bloomin' puzzle most for sooooo long.
Oh, wait, if that's the 4th 7-letter word....
1) relates to leathe-making
2) a rocket coming home
3) tickling your appetite - sounds like it's damp...
d) something todo with computer language - binary is the only word I know that's comp.related.. or .. a third item?? what's that??
Well, bloomin' heck - guess who just figuered the 4th word? yup, l'il ol' me.
Thanks, huh for the metal clue. Got it!
thinking out loud works wonders, eh christine?
I wish i was strong enough to leave the keyboard and return to my book!
ConXshun - what are you reading?
The Pleiadian Agenda
hehe, in the introduction it states that technology actually mutates the brain and that if we're not careful computers will have us rather than the other way around.
If babble is anything to go by then.......
the more I read this kind of stuff, the more I believe the star-trek documentary which said that a lot of its stuff is based on realistic possibilites if not fact.
and I would still love to get a z word...
It seems, in the past 6+ hours, I've found only 7 words....
A - 2
E - 3
F - 4
G - 3
H - 3
N - 3
P - 1
R - 4
T - 12
W - 7
pitiful... I'll be crushed if someone has 200 words for 3500 points... nah, not really, just verrry surprised
I think its the same for all. Huh said there's only 80 words in this grid anyway. I have 49 of them, and cannot for the life of me find any more.
that's 6 words in the last 3 hours.... so, Christine, you're doing ok!! ;)
42 with 1 seven, but it's my first ever, any clues for me?
if you read the log, you'll find all sorts of clues in there. there's 4 7-letter words so far. Christine listed them 1-4 for easy finding.
I've got a 7 letter word, if i try to enter the five letter word that it comes from, I am told "Oops! your word doesn't exist in the puzzle!" - even though said 5 letters exist in the same order in the 7 letter word....
never mind, after putting in a few other words, it suddenly decided to take that one
jeff, thanks for the knife sharpener clue. Got it!
morning all..will come back to play later...looks like yet another icky puzzle...going out to sweat now...it's supposed to be 109 here today. sigh...
I have two 7 letter words. The one that starts with T and the one that starts with W. What do the other words start with. Please tell me. I am getting a headache.
I have 5 words that start with R.
conXshun, Found a word with a "Z" in it.
ok how about a clue for the Z word patty:)
don't know what it means but my mum used it as an exclamation of dismay!
Patty, Sorry your clue does not help me. Does it begin with z or have the z in it? :)
ok found a word with the Z in it but here its a card game, a type of head to head solitaire
the word with z i found ends in z and is 4 leters
my Z word is 5 letters and ends in Z
my z is 5 letters and rhymes with the rental car company
52 now and about to quit.
thanks for the exclamation of dismay Patty! Got it in one. Now I wonder what the 5 letter word is. Is the car rental company international or just USA? (in which case it won't help us europeans)
hmm, my dismay call is 4 letters ending in z - is there a 5-letter one which sounds like the car company?
The car rental is all over the world.
right thanks- doesnt' help tho'. :( Brain no good. Going to have a break (again).
Think of what it does when you have pain.
i've got the rental company, but can't fit it to rhyme with anything that ends in z on the grid. Would a labotomy help?
Got it! - by accident. Labotomy does help ;)
It would help, I feel I am brain dead playing this game.
*stretches* Hi all trouble is back ;) lol #
EEK still got a truck load of words to find *sigh* do you ever wish you never started ?? lol
Back to the Gri*N*d ;)
hello Huh. I'll never get 80 words... and yes, i do wish I'd never started. I've got MUCH better things to do than stare at this grid...
but I keep coming back.
LOL tell me bout it ;) I should be doing the ironing *groan*
I HATE IRONING!!
Okay well still no more than a 7 here!!
Ooo Ooo found a weird one ending with a Z

i have 15 6's
A - 1
F - 3
G - 2
H - 2
N - 2
P - 1
R - 1
T - 1
W - 2
I am missing a 6 W
Same here modina!
Go jump in a swimming pool and you'll get it.
(ok, that's probably a hint for the one you've already got :) )
Thats the one ive got ;-)))
There is also a 6 starting with Y.
I got 2 "T" 6's
missing the 2nd "W" 6, though
I have a 4 and a 5 starting with Y. That means there are at least 3 words that start with Y. Have to keep looking.
Hallo, y'all... especially my baby siste.... I cannot, for the life of me, find the Z words.... there's a chance someone sabotaged my grid-- again!
Is there a fifth 7??
I only have 4 7's
the z words both end in z....4 G and 5 N
i only have 4 7's also.....mising a T, Y, W 6....any hints?
The 6/Y builds on the 4/Y.
And just found a second 6 starting with A.
It's 18 points.
i am stumped
thanx...got the 6 Y
okay I really dont see a second 6 T....
Both of the T's has to do with skin.
im lost on the second 6 W also...found the second 6 A though
how many points is the "first" 6-A? I already have a 6 for 18 A.
1st A = 27 points
6 A for 27.....has to do with the heart
can somebody tell me how many points the second 6 T and 6 W have....please
That 6 for 27 A... How could I have missed that??
both T's are 18
finally got that 2nd 6 T now on to the W...thanx for the hints
are we sure there is a second 6 W....maybe i am just blind
i have 17 6's does anyone have more than that? I am so confused!!!
i can't find the 2nd "w" either. I keep entering the same words over and over, like the third try will go through. :p
I also have 17 6s - only 1 6 starting with W. But the boggle solver does indicate that there are 18 6s, so I'm assuming there is a second W 6 that I just haven't found yet.
Can't believe I didn't have the first 6 T. I had the 7 that is based on it . . .
what is a boggle solver?
There is a web site where you can put in a boggle board and it will solve it. I found it by a yahoo or google search.
You can specify the minimum number of letter per word, so you can use it to find how many words of each letter count.
But, it displays a list of solutions as well as the word count, so you have to be very careful to not look at the word list when looking at the count, unless you want the leg up it provides.
I like to have the total word count, and words per letter count as a goal to work toward, but I don't look at the solution.
A warning - it is not perfect. Generally, there are between 5-6 fewer words and 5-6 more words than the solve indicates. That's because it uses a different dictionary from this game. Yesterday, the solver said 100 words, but at least one person found 101. Today it says 80 words, with 4x7 and 18x6.
it would be nice to see how many words there are...but it would just be boring to use the word list....thanks....I still dont see another 6 W....
Yep, that would be boring. If you use the solver, you have to scroll to the very bottom of the page and look only at the word count, averting your eyes frorm the word list. It's not easy, but a few of us use it that way. :)
Marianne... are you still playing?
You have email..
Christine you have Email.
Christine I have only just come back to the game I have been to Tom's all evening.
Wel, now, inspite of bein soundly ignored by my siste, I found the two Z-words.
Marianne, can keep sleeping, and I'll talk to her tomorrow, about familiall responsibility....
Thank you, Marianne - I replied to your email.
Give my love to your family.
Christine how can you say I ignored you I have been out and I just helped you!
Joanie - what "second W" are you looking for? is this another 6 or 7?
Okay, Marianne, I forgive you THIS time, but you really should stay on the board, incase I need help....
Leave rainy London, come to live in hot-hot-hot Los Angeles, hmm?
okay i found the 18th 6.....it does not begin with W....all that wasted brain power. Anyone wanna know what it starts with?
Yes, please tell me
Christine, London is very nice and hot and I am loving itAnd 5 little ones keep me here
it starts with N
how many words does everyone have?
I can only find 1-6 letter w word.
How many words are there in this grid, does anyone know?
Are we looking for a third N-6??
I have .. 20/4s..8/5s..16/6s..4/7s
i think there are only 18 six letters...someone told me a little while ago that there are 80 words in the puzzle...i dont think there is more than one 6 W
i only have two 6 N's sorry if i confused you
I have two 6 letter words that start with N. Is there a 3rd one now?
I have 81 words and still haven't found the two Z's someone mentioned they had
31 X 4
13 X 5
18 X 6
4 X 7
i am done i think....my brain is fried....such a headache
i dont think there are any that start with Z.... is there?
about an hour ago someone mentioned they found 2 z words.
There are two words that end in z
thanks, I have the 2 words that end in Z, I think I'm finished
modina, what do you 6's start with. I know I am missing a G.
i think i am done also....i have 78 words....i cant think
modina- what's your 6's by letter count? I only have 17:
G - 2
H - 2
N - 2
P - 1
R - 1
T - 2
W - 1
Y - 1
A x 2
F x 3
G x 3
H x 2
N x 2
P x 1
R x 1
T x 2
W x 1
Y x 1
marigold, do you really have 2 six letter words that start with W?
there's a 7 starting with w for 52
thanks, brainless, I already have that one.
found 2 7s anymore out there
I think I'm done, here... still only 46 words, and a lovely chart showing the breakdown (the words, not mine) but I cannot find more words.
An exercise in futility, so I'm shutting down for the night ... unless I give in, and come back.
Oh no, Liz - are you my neice? Say you haven't found a 5th and 6th 7-lette word.... we'll all qualify for a group rate in the nuthouse, if we have to search for more words.
hi christine, don't know if there's anymore .got the w for 7 now .
mal are you still with us ?
had enough nite all
Can i share the nuthouse discount please?
What the heck did I do with my time, three months ago?.... gotta get a life.... but the good thing is, I've met all you nice people
Pack your bags, I have nice rooms booked at the nuthouse, all equipped so we continue to pley BABBLE.
Really! I am not coming back 'til late, late..... probably.
For those starting the game later than others, there are apparently 16 6s (modina gave starting letters just a few posts ago) and 4 7s. There are good clues to the 7s earlier, including 1 post with clues to all 4.
I can confirm that I also have 18 6s, and the same starting letter distribution as modina.
This is the starting letter distribution, for my word-list
4s .... 5s .... 6s ....7s ....
Well, that looks like a bloody mess, onscreen -- seems much clearer on a sheet of paper, and easier to keep track of what words I'm missing...
knowing that i'm missing the rocket one for 7 doesn't help, but it's good to know it's an r. :)
Just getting started tonight -- been trying to avoid babble b/c sitting at my computer is not good for my H2O retention (pg) LOL! There are only a couple of places that I have more words than you do--
A -- 1/1/2/- (4)
G -- 3/1/2/- (6)
R -- I have 2x4
Thanks for posting your stats! ;-)
4t8 - y'know what happens when the rocket comes back to earth... we speak of RE-----
I'm up to 17x6 and 4x7 now!
I'm up to 17x6 and 4x7 now!
sorry for the double post
OMGosh - I can't get away from hee... watching a program on PBS, on pandas. reading a (medieval) mystery, and playing babble, all at once... no wonder I'm overstimulated, when it's time to sleep... poor little thing.
What are you reading?
Have you read any Sharan Newman? I started one but haven't finished yet.
I generally have 2 or 3 books going at a time. Today finished 'Big Russ & Me' (Tim Russert) and 'Six Easy Pieces' (Walter Mosley) and I'm now working on 'Wine of Violence' (Priscilla Royal) - don't know about this one, bit soppy, actually - not quite a bodice ripper, but maybe trying to be Brother Cadfael, y'know?
I used to be more literate and read a lot but grad school and kids have slowed down my reading . . . and now I spend time on the computer ;-P Some of the best books I've read recently have been ones I've previewed for my kid -- there are actually some interesting stories out there for kids. . . Iceberg Hermit, The Year of Miss Agnes (or anything by Kirkpatrick Hill), etc.
I'm always curious what others are reading -- esp when you said medieval mystery! ;-)
finally got the 4th 7; had been trying to make it a verb to no avail. thanks a lot for the hints.
fixitfirmly -- thanks for the referrral; I just looked them up on the library's list... lots of her books available. At present, I have 17 books checked out, I've read only 4, so I need to get the otheres read within the next two weks. I'll do it, then I'll order uo some of her books.
Earlier this week, someone mentioned Pleiadian Agenda - I've ordered that but there's only one copy available, and I'm #3 on the waiting-list.
Some of my postings look like they're written by an illiterate -- but it's really my fingers, moving faster than the keyboard can handle.... I really can spell, but I keep dropping Rs and Gs.... aaargh.
While I still worked, I read about 5-7 books, per week, and thought after retirement I'd have time for more, especially since I have leg and spine problems that make it difficult to move around.... but no! that's when I got a computer, and turned into a slug.
How old are your children? Do you enjoy reading with them, or are they old enough to read to you.
A couple of years ago, I started rereading my favorite books from my childhood.. Puck of Pook's Hill, the Arthur Ramsom books, a few old Enid Blyton's..
