Don't know the final count, but I'm guessing there are quite a few more today.
I only have 5 7's, but there are at least 26 6's
claws - I have 6xi, 4xo, 4xu
Solver says 143 words 7x7, 30x6, 50x5, 56x4 but it's been pretty wrong lately. A couple days ago it was missing an 8-letter word and a couple of smaller ones for something like 65 points. So, use with caution!
I have 6 7's 48,44,36,36,44,40.
Ooo! Make that 5 by O!
Sorry, I meant 5 by U!
21 B's!!! Blimey
I have a 7 letter that starts with a "b" for 36 points (plural of a 6 letter for 24).
117 words 1565
I need to take a break - I keep swearing to only do puzzles with lt 100 words. Sigh!
OK, just got jmdobie's B, so that gives me 22 B's.
but babble isn't a scrapbooker so it doesn't worry about acidfree..
if you are still looking for non-mo M's, try thinking of animal sounds.
i have 4 mou's and one mu now..but def can't find two more.Stuck on 8 c's now
I'm looking for an A word and think I should be able to use "arfed". Doesn't babble have dogs?
Oooh - I just found 3 R words by a typo! I was trying a random combo for an E word, but somehow got the letters out of order. It accepted it, but my E word was not there. It took some searching to find the R word that I had typed and it had accepted, LOL! But then was able to get two other forms of the word as well. Yay!
Does anyone have clues for the A's or E's? I have one of each.
A - a chemical term
E - sea eagles
one of the e's is also chemical, its elementary my dear watson
the other A isn't very English. It's a 5/16.
Thanks! Very helpful, both of you. Happy to trade knowledge if you need anything. ;)
5.62 bushels = 198 liters; thats a hint
D/7 = 36 meaning what we all did this morning before leaving the house. Any other big word hints? Please and thanks.
jennbee - You hope we did, anyway. ;) There's a combo of 4 words, 7 letters each. Two start with 1 letter, and two start with another. They have very similar patterns.
So, there are two prefixes, each used twice.
Then, 4 letters that are the same among all four words (and a 4-letter word for 7 points)
Then there are 2 different ending letters (making different verb forms) each used twice.
Anybody have all six u's? I am missing one. I have 3xur and 2xus
You're missing a UR. There is a 6-letter UR that is the plural of the second UR. If you're not missing that one, think ashes.
I'm an idiot, nevermind.
The three US words are all different forms of the same word. Two are verb forms and one is a noun.
heh, I'm an idiot, too. After I'd already been through my list looking for plurals! Thanks muchly.
yay got all the u's thanks to those hints. what's the not-very-english second letter? a..
I'm still missing 2 U words.
I have all 3 US words but think I am missing 2 UR words.
The UR word I do have is the plural of a container used for funeral ashes. What are the other 2?
minski i would never have got it without consulting a dictionary!!
There's a 4 UR for 4 points and it's 6-letter plural for 18, meaning an extinct ox. Found them by random noodling.
Britneysdead - There are very few combinations of letters that can make the A word. It shouldn't take long to stumble across it if you do the math.
thanks jlm_mi, although i tend to be better at the meaning hints rather than the technical ones. Also - it took the word for ritual passover meal despite rejecting my yiddish. Who knew?
my third E is in the alphabet. Pretty stuck on the fourth, though.
my brain must have given up because i still can't get the a word
the A sort of sounds like a star name, although that's not actually what it means.
Your third E is actually the 4th E. The third E has one more letter than that one, added into the second position.
Thanks, jlm! Now, i am having a math problem witht he 6s. I have 29, like so:
where the star is a 21 you seem to have that I don't. Problem is if yours are alphabetical, and I have not screwed up, it means the solver is wrong for whatever letter that 21 starts with. I think?
(sorry to squish the word list like that.)
and i just found the first 24, so it definitely seems like there may be 31 6s, not 30.
Parsec, I hope this comes out right. The top row of 6's is mine. The bottom row is yours. It should help us both figure out what we're missing. I'm up to 29 as well.
great. I was worried I'd have to revisit the second half of the alphabet. again. =)
for the 27, babble may not have dogs (so much for "arfed") but it has other animals.
Yes, I got it finally. I knew what it started with, and that it contained a D somewhere. And there was the animal sounds clue earlier. But really, what does it actually mean??? I can't find it in a dictionary.
I don't know. There are a lot of words that seem to be babble-ese.
whoever put me on to A2Z wordfinder...bless you. It is helpful.
OK, if anyone wants to help me reach closer to getting them all, I'd love it. :D I'm missing 4 5-letter words and 1 4-letter word.
I'm missing 1xB, 2xF, 1xR, 1xS
I have 140 words for 1986 points.
I'm not sure how you can help. Maybe if there is one of those words that is most rare, point me in the right direction? Or, if you also have in the vicinity of 140 words, how many points? I'll keep hunting for 30 minutes till I have to go.
Can someone give me a clue for the B7
It's the plural of a B6.
Think stock exchange.
Found a 5-letter S. So, still looking for 3x5 and 1x4.
OK, I'm quitting at 142/2022.
Checked the solver for my 3 missing words. The max possible score for this puzzle should be 145/2059.
how do you folks know how many words are in a puzzle and how many letters in a word?
You can plug the letters from the grid into an online puzzle solver, that will give you the stats, (and the answers), if you wanted them.
I have three 7 letter words, d/36, d/48 and r/44. Would someone please tell me what the other 7 letter words start with, please?
I know one starts with B. But I can't find it. At least not yet. :(
there is an r7 that is only one letter different
from the r7 that you have
im missing the d48 that you have how about a clue for that
Found the 7 letter B word.
a1axelady, The d for 48 is similar to one of your 7 letter r words but with a different first letter.
thanks got it thought i had already tried that looking at letters wayyyy to long here :)
I am now missing only one 7 letter word. I have B/36, D/48, D/44, D/36, R/44 and R/40. What am I missing?
Your welcome, Can you tell me which letter begins the 7 letter word I do not have?
I cant help you there i dont have the b7 and am missing the other 7 also
R 7 for 36 ..
Periwinkle, can you give me a hint on the b-36, d-44, or r-40? I've had sad luck with the sevens today.
runningforhome, The clue for the B word was stockmarket. I looked up stockmarket in a dictionary and got the answer. The d/44 abd r/40 are the same except for the first letter.
A clue for the r/40: when you don't accept something. you r-------- it.
runningforhome, another clue for the R word . Another word for trash.
marigold, are you here?
periwinkle, I think you mean the d-48 and the r-44. Those are almost the same and fit your clues...
Found the r-40; can't believe I forgot to enter it before.
Will any one help me with the last 7 letter word?
Starts with an r, and builds on a plural form of transportation (though the definition is unrelated).
Thanks, I got it.
Thanks me too
It must be staring me in the face, but I can't see the b/7 even with the stock market clue. Is it a common word?
no--it's definition in the dictionary is "A stock exchange, especially one in a continental European city"
thanks Teddy. I just got it by using A2z wordfinder. Whew. That makes 6 7 letter words. Is that it?
I have seven, but I don't know if there are any more.
Ok, what am I missing. I have 3 d's, 2 r's and a b
An r. Check my 7:30 post for a clue.
we have shops [here in philly] in a building by the name of the b-7, but i'd completely forgotten about it.
