I haven't used K to start a word but I've used it 5 times in words
I don't know what's wrong with me today - I'm blind to any more words and I only have 35!

Never can get the long ones......any clues for the 8's? Starting letters?
Suggestion to the Powers-That-Be: it would be great if along with every player's stats/word lists you could also show their time or how long they were logged on. I'm never a top scorer, but I usually only have time for 2 or so hours of play. Just wondering how my scores compare with others with a similar playing time.
I'm still missing one, but the 8s i have are all Rs.
Good suggestion, cz. I have 3 8's - 1-g & 2 r's.
It wouldn't be accurate.I play on paper throughout the day then type all my words in right before I go to bed.

And I'm logged in all day, but only look at it occasionally, a few minutes at a time.
Well, might not be accurate for everyone...but if you knew that it was keeping track of the time you'd probably log off and log back on accordingly. I guess I'd like to be able to compare my scores because I know that many of the players that score higher than me spend a lot more time on the puzzle as well. It's obvious that you'd never be able to get complete accuracy (someone who writes down the puzzle on paper then logs on for a very short time or someone who forgets to log off and is on for 12 hours) but that's all in the spirit of the game.
fixitfirmly--good clue about putting up wallpaper!
I still don't get the Jack London clue...
the JL book is about a dog. Or a wolf, i forget.
Jack London was an author... part of the title of one of his most popular books will get you a 4 for 8 points, and its plural for 18.
and the adjective for 33...
Yeah, I've got the 4/8 and 5/18 but fixit was referring to a 7/48..I don't get the clue for *that*.
Nevermind. Just needed a prefix.
well i am done for now. things i have more of than what's been posted so far:
there's a combo of 5 words that will get you a 6, 3x7, and an 8 -- start by thinking of a safe place
my earlier 'think of people putting up wallpaper' clue will get you a 7 word combo, including the root and various prefix/suffix attachments --
4, 5, 3x6, 7, 8
hi fixitfrmly. I got that one and was patting myself on the back :) Another clue to the biggee is stranger from another country
thank you so much for the stranger clue. i got it! now, with the wallpaper, i think i got the base, but i'm missing all the extras. how do you get to an eight? i'm right thinking of a game with a stick figure, right?
I know I'm missing 2 G words. If you have more in other categories, please share!
think more than one stranger
Thanks for the clues! I got the JL, wallpaper, and the safe place. Another clue for the 6, 3x7, 8 set....think of Tom Petty songs.
jlm_mi - here's where I differ from you:
jlm_mi, you're also missing at least one E.
ARRGGH!! I was just congratulating myself on getting to 14 As -- they are my nemesis. Don't find any more As! ;-D
My A vocab is limited to words like 'Ack!' and 'ark' but they are too small . . . ;)
I feel for you. The A's are terrible! My A-word vocabulary has increased tenfold since I started playing this game and I still miss tons of them!
Just made it to 2000 before duties call! Maybe I'll be back after twinkies bedtime . . .
There's a G-8?? Any clues for that one? I'm at a loss... :/
the G8 builds on a G6--they're sewing words.
Great! I don't sew... ;-)
um, think of wind, then add another syllable? the G6 is 21pts.
Thank parsec, I got it!
Aha! Got it! I know that word, it was right there the whole time. Thanks, parsec!
and i know some people here have 19 As, but I have decided there are only 18. Stupid A words.
No 8 letter words, but I've only been playing about an hour.
Thanks for the clue Parsec got the G6 and the G8
When did he S 5/6 combo for 16/27 become a word? It's an acronym...sometimes I think this dictionary is just that...heh heh.
LOL - Never knew that was an acronym. I always thought it was just a word. LOVE what it stands for though! :-D
Oh, and it's actually a 5/6/7 combo. ;)
What does the 8 for 60 start with, please?
Wish I knew what the acronym was.
8 for 60 starts with r and its one of 5 words with the same root word
Thanks trixiew. I will keep looking.
hey thanks - never would've tried that b/c the plural was already a stretch in my mind (situations?), the past tense is just plain silly (situationed?). :-]
Periwinkle - the acronym is military in origin (I think), and suggests lack of surprise that everything's so screwed up.....
Fixit - what a shame you can't use your A word (the one longer than three letters).... A6/33 plus whatever you get for
Oooops, fixit - s/b 'plus whatever you get for three exclamation points"
Christine, you are right that it is military in origin. I know what it stands for, and I've heard it toned down by those who don't like naughty words :)
i am still not getting this R8
ok....got it...i am a little slow
i got an r 8 for 65 is there another?
onyx, yes there is another 8 letter r word.
fixit - I don't use that other word (remember, I'm perfect) so I'd say 'fouled up'
Onyx and Modina - d'you still need clues for the two R8s?
i) think of escaping your country, for a safer place... with prefixes and suffixes - 5 words.
ii) think of wallpaper - again! With prefix and suffix - 3 words.
Is the R 8 for 65 dealing with the wallpaper? I got the one about escapeing...
Sorry, got confused there. I got that the R 8 for 65 deals with wallpaper, just how is what I have not figured out yet....
