it was tannin
Ya, I looked. Oh, well. I'll do better next time.:)
Can almost make soiree...
I'm done for the night. Here's my countdown for so far:
l x 8
n x 1
o x 3
p x 6
r x 1
s x 12
t x 8....for a total of 39 for 269.
still wishing stent would work
Ifeel like I have done this one before.
Anyone have a total for this one?
2 6's so far...
136 words today.
Found a 7 for 36
If it starts with i, then I have it too.
2 6s so far .. can't find anything bigger
I like that "i" 7!!
It really should take neopet and neopets :P
6 6's and one 7 so far, with 38 words to go
i found a 9
how many points is the 9?
found a 6/7 combo
Russian authors, anyone?
116 words out of 136
Wow, 32 words starting with X so far. This is fun!
finally! a 6 for 24
124/4.60/1274 so far but mine are sufficiently different to majenwens that I thought they might be useful:
how many letters in the Y word?
thnks Kirsty1 that should help
I'm completely stuck on 134 for 1412, has anyone got more than this?
Kirsty1 I have 30 T's
How many do you have?
The only changes from my list below are :
Since when is itsy not a word???? :-D
Found the 9!
any clues for the 9???????
Has to do with having fame or prestige... I'm terrible with clues.
Perfectly good clue, runningforhome - thanks!
thanks for the good clue runningforhome!
i can't see anything in this puzzle..i've been working on it for an hour and a half and i have 8 words
not a good babble day at all
There's an alternate spelling of a certain drug for 6/33, and its plural for 7/48.
Kirsty1 - how the hell have you managed to find so many S and T words?
I've only got 14 S and 7 T
i must have my stupid head on today :)
Nah, I'm just home alone today so I've spent more hours on it than is stricly healthy! I don't even know what most of the S and T words are - there are some mad ones that I just got through trial, error and then more error!
stor and stoor are perfectly good words - i checked them - but it won't accept them.
Particularly annoyed by "stoor", its a good scots word. Anyone else had these rejected?
What letter does the 9 start with?
it starts with N
I had the 'st' words rejected as well.
Dictionary certainly doesn't know all.
the only drug I can find in there is an 'e' short... and I'm fixed and stuck on in. any clues on other drugs?
ah. dinner break.
back later ;)
ConXshun, you're on the right track with that drug.
That's the drug I keep trying to make too. Driving me nuts! I should not have started this puzzle. Don't have time to play, but can't keep it out of my mind.
Uggh! Just keep trying end letters where you're missing the E and you'll find it. Who knew?
'Tolstoy' is not a valid word. :(
thanks for the further drug clues! have succeeded :) and yeah - who would've thought eh?
I've got 6s for 27, 33, 24, 18, 18, 18 (in alph. order). What have you all got?
I'm missing two of the 18s, but I have one for 24 ahead of the 27.
"At 03:52 am Pleonastic 1 said...
Wow, 32 words starting with X so far. This is fun!"
Am I reading this correctly that Pleonastic has 32 words that start with the letter X? I didn't think that there were that many words in the English language that begin with X...lol
Ahhhhhhh, won't take rolos....
anybody know what's out there? I have
Between ~2AM and ~8AM there were some starting letter counts posted. Some of the categories have more than you listed. There are around 134 words in this puzzle.
I'm fairly sure that was a joke.
l x 12
o x 5
t x 35
That's what I was thinking, but you never know. Suddenly one might think about brushing up on X words...ugh, what a chore that would be...lol
Has anyone used the X within a word?
I've assumed that was a joke too! I've got 134/1412 (without a single x used) and I keep checking back in because early on somebody said there were 136 and I just can't find any more...
Aww, come on...it won't take pooey?...
osteopals - friendly practices?
and it wont take poos either... :(
kirsty1 - The solver I used said 134 words. 1x9, 2x7, 14x6, 45x5, 72x4
x x 7, t x 78, s x (-78)
Thanks jlm_mi, that's good enough for me :o)
still can't find the drug word. i'm giving up in disgust!
Can you please give me a hint about the drug word or the letter it begins with. :)
I am stuck at 49.
drug: hallucinogen - from mexican plant
it's not peyote so what is it?
mmph. tolstoy isn't a word yet. :D
perwinkle did you get the 9 letter word
starting with N
mulhermujer, can you confirm.
Anyone got more than 2 I's??
Drug word starts with P.
what the next letter in the nine letter "N" word?
i do not know what the second letter is.
maybe someone can help
the next letter is "e"
nah i'm just fucking with you, i really don't know
you might find it more rewarding to focus on the N in the 3rd row, 1st column
is there even a word with nine letters starting with "N"
Yea! I got it. There are two clues early . If you focus on the clues earlier
you will be able to get.
so it's in the first column row throw
and it's nine letters?
yes it is the n in the firs column.
rotent -- when your campsite is flooded
Not doing as well today. That bleeping N9 is driving me crazy!
Anyone have a hint for the 7 letter i word?
Has to do with chemistry and the periodic table.
Thanks! Got it.
another good clue, runningforhome. thx
arrrggghh! The only N word I'm missing is the 9! Still many words away from total. Was hoping to reach 1000 but must go to bed ;-P
you could go to an online thesaurus, if that helps.
if anyone still needs the drug, its ending is similar in spelling to the sausage's. (earlier guesses weren't far off of the mark.)
Aahhh! *banging head on keyboard* I just saw it before I pulled myself away. Saw another obvious one too! Now I *really* have to go to bed! ;-)
"At 07:47 pm practice said...
mulhermujer, can you confirm.
Sorry to not have responded earlier. I got offline not to long after that bit of playing I did.
Yes, my "X" word count was a joke. I just thought it would give people fits for awhile trying to think of where 32 X words could come from. :)
