Poop. Id just found the word coquet and the game changes!
Ah, why can the 'ionique' be a word?
Oo oo, 7 for 44 :)
8 FOR 65
7 for 56
I just got that one too!! Three cheers for the 8 for 65!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Soooooooo glad I'm fascinated by the periodic table of elements. Quite handy for this grid :)
8 for 70.
and those 8's yesterday, foo. I shoulda had 'em.
Ah, man! It won't take 'nooner!'
7 for 52
38 for 511. Done por el noche.
ooh, la, just got the 8 for 65 that goes with the 7-44!
i have four 7's for 44, but none seem to go with an 8, and it's bedtime here. :-/
My 7's go:
56, 52, 52, 44, 44, 44, 44
39 for 612. Only one 8 and 2 7s, but it's an early day, tomorrow.
Ladies, do remember to click on to the breast cancer site, each day??
oops, sent this as an e to Babble. Can always tell the newbies, huh? lol. Hi all you pro babblers. (waving) This is fun, just found my first 8-letter word. Thanks to Perwinkle for the invite.
Is this an obsession or an addiction... I was fast asleep, and a word came into my mind.. by the time I put on the light, I had four more words, now I've put in 21 words... 60 for 835.
Out, out damned Babble - I gotta get some sleep.
[quote] Is this an obsession or an addiction [/quote]
I think the answer is yes and yes!
Currently I have 61 words for 1480
Hi, Arda, Are you still here?
I could kick myself for not getting the update words in yesterdays puzzle. They were so obvious. Oh, well.
got an 8-70 and a 7-52!
I`ve got 3 x 8 & 8 x 7 so far.
The creators of this game obviously haven't seen LOTR as the word "onering" doesn't work in this puzzle.
got a 7-36
I have 61 words for 1005 points... anyone want starting letters?
82 / 4.88 / 1405
You might like this rfh ...
181 words /1908 :
Taking a break will try again later.
Sorry 101 words
and there I was thinking I was almost doing well :P
Haha, me too... I've got a long way to go.
Well, I'm behind on almost everything else, but I have 8 N-words.
Well, I otherwise have fewer (76/1638), but I have 6 P's and 8 W's. Ten 7's, two 8's.
what does the 8/70 start with please?
Does anyone know the total number of words in this puzzle?
mine starts with C
Is anyone else playing?
Kukana, Can I have a hint for your c word? And which C did you use?:)
The C that's above the Qu. The 8 for 70 is linked to a 5 for 20
Thanks, I will keep looking. I have a 5/20. Hope it is the right word. It means task. Is it the right one?
108 words 5.06 2162
- and it's nearly 10.30pm here which means time for me to get some sleep. I think all my starting letters are listed below in various places!
I think I have 13 7s and 3 8s but my eyes are going funny from too much computering today so I'd better stop.
Kukana, where are you. It is only 3:30 pm where I am.
Found a 7 for 52 while looking for the 8 for 70.
It's a different 5 for 20, a more tuneful one :) You can add the same suffix to both of them (but the task one only becomes a 7 because it loses the e when you add the suffix)
Hope that's not too cryptic!
I'm in Cyprus :) Same time-zone as Athens.
Kukana, Thanks for your help. Found the 8 for 70. :)
You're welcome :) Good night!
How many words are in this puzzle?
May I have a clue for the 8/65 ? What letter does it start with please?
lots of "q" words :)
Starts with the same letter as the other 8.
8 for 65 begins with C.
A basic knowledge of chemistry will be handy :)
It starts with C. May I have a definition please?
Since I did poorly in chemistry I guess I am out of luck:(
Hmm, I had a different 8/65 all together... has to do with persuasion. Got the other one now, though, thanks!
Periwinkle - I too did poorly in chemistry, and after 50+ years, I've pretty much forgotten wgatever I did learn -- but, think white laundry...
Runningfor home -- what is the starting letter for your persuasive word, pray tell....
Christine, I found it. I had tried to make it earlier but was not going the right way. Great clue. I was racking my brain going through tables of elements, etc.
Christine - mine is a C as well.
woo another 8 for 65 :) also starts with a C
bazoOka, May I have a definition please, :)
There is a H word in here, which is a variation of the past tense of 'help.' I have never heard of before. Something new everyday...:)
Never mind, I got it , a definition would be forceful persuasion.
straight from the question mark ;)
"To force to act or think in a certain way by use of pressure, threats, or intimidation"
starts using the "c" on the top row
I have 4 eight letter words that start with C. Are there any more 8 letter words?
im done for now :x
Ah, persuasion -- I had those words, but I think of it as something more forceful, perhaps even manipulative -- and I'm SUCH a nice person, I would never use fore...
Ah, if only we were in China, I'd have about six Y words -- as it is, I've zilch...
Four c-8s? I only have three...
Well, almost at once, I saw a small Y word... and Lord knows where I learned THAT word...
So, any clues on the othe Y word, or on the fourth C8?
Do we know, yet, how many words we seek????
2x forceful persuasion
1x bleach chemical
... the fourth word will have you singing i think ;)
That last C8 -- I kept overlooking the I in the top row..
I think I'll shut down, do some sewing, and think about the Y word.... is it a l-o-n-g word and a high scorer?
second y is 5 for 20
Well, I'll be.....another of those words. Q, thanks for the clue.
Just couldn't stay away for very long.
Thanks shortseer; for some reason I only entered one of the two persuasion words.
someone said there was a 7/56. Can you tell me what letter it starts with and a definition please?:)
Hi, I have a 7 for 56 that starts with c to do with acid....
Thanks I will look for it.
I've got 2x 7s worth 56ea
You might want to consider Babble's chemical-of-the-day again.
It's the better option. ;)
So what's the top count for 8's so far?
I've got 5.
7 for 56...same root as the 8 for 65 starting with C. Definition = of or pertaining to "8 for 65 word"
Can some one help me with the other 7's? I have 9 in order: 56,48,48,52,48,44,52,44,44
What am I missing?
dimwit, which C does it start with please?
third row down
I got it, It wouldn't take it the first two times though.
9 cz? I have only 3 ! I think I need more help too!
I have 12 7's:
56, 48, 56, 48, 52, 48, 44, 52, 44, 44, 44, 44
It seems I am missing the three 7's for 48 and one for 52. Would someone give me some hints or at least a starting letter. :)
I've got 6x C7s
and 4 other 7s:
O7 of dreams
2x P7 of pigs
Also two 7's for 44. :(
shortseer, I have one p7 re pigs. Is there another?
sorry ... hit enter too fast ...
2nd P7 musshroom
actually, it sounds like a mushroom made for pigs ;)
shortsheer, never would have gotten the O word without your help and my crossword dictionary. Thanks :)
shortseer, got the other p/7 word. Thanks again. :)
yes ... well then i'm one step along from you peri. If someone asked be for the word to do with dreams, i can never remember it. But if i see it, i know what it is.
shortseer, May I have another clue for the E seven and which E did it start with. I can't think of any E words that mean peacful.
Which e for peaceful and which o for hte dreams please ? well stuck on those:(
dimwit, either of the two o's at the bottom.
Top Left O for the dreams
I'm confused now !
Really all three work. I used the top left O, but the other two O's will make the same word as well.
I have 8 seven letter words,
I am missing the e and 4 c's. That means there are at least 13 seven letter words. Is this correct. And I sure would like to know the total number of words in this game.
Thanks m & p, needed the thesaurus to help with that one too! Any help with the peaceful e ? can only think of serene....
I have three words that start with Q . Do I need to look for any more?
sorry for the slow repsonse peri ... i've been away from the computer.
use one of the middle Es
it's a variant spelling
if i was writing a cryptic crossword clue, i'd put:
nevermind, apparently there are at least 5 words that start with Q.
I have one with q nearer the middle.....
i have 10x 7s from the top 3 rows of the grid
If peri's R7 and 2x E7 start from the 4th and 5th rows of the grid, then there MUST be at least 13x 7s
q's 3x5 for 18. 1x4for 8 , 1x6 for 45
The last letter count at 10:58 said that there were 3 P's. I have 5 now. Does anyone know the total # of P words?
with the help of atoz word finder I found three more Q words. Are there any more?
i've got 6x P's
I have 6 P words
shortseer, I looked up pacific, found irenic but can't seem to find the right combo for the e word. Am I on the right track?
you are SO close ;)
I know. I will keep trying.
I just can't get it.
How many points is the E7?
you HAVE got
you just can't see it
I am really trying. I know I will kick myself tomorrow if I don't get it today.
perhaps you are trying too hard
dont fiddle so hard with what you already have ... just add to it ;)
shortseer, I GOT IT! Your clue was cryptic. But I finally figured it out. Thanks so much.
Now that I see the word, Your clue ws pretty good. I was spelling the beginning the wrong way. And wasted a lot of time. Oh well. :)
Enough for one day/night. See you tomorrow.
aj are you out there?
I have a 7-36 that you didn't mention in your list.
My 7's now look like this (thanks shortseer!):
56, 48, 56, 48, 52, 48, 44, 52, 36, 44, 36, 44, 44, 44
i have 2 7's that are 52
is it correct that there are 3x E7 ??
one is peaceful
... what is a clue for the 3rd one (E44 ?)and which E does it start with?
Hm. Clue for the E7/44...
Well, it's a 7 letter word that only uses six tiles.
It says "hecow" isn't a word! That's bull, if you ask me.
I have 3 X 7-56.
All start with C.
In all I have 5 X C/7
Well, sure enough, another C-56.
where does the o8 start from please ?
An O-8? I don't have one. I don't remember one being mentioned in the log...?
I must have mis-copied, I can't find it in the log now either - oh well, back to the cs.
I found one C/8 meaning forceful persuasion but can't find the other one. Do they start with the same 4 letters?
yes but the other more usually has an s in it somewhere
i only have 1 c7 that has 56 points any clues for the other one or two ?
Got the 4th C/8!
Also thanks wordfinder. Don't know why I didn't think to check it before.
This puzzle is too American - it won't accept 'chequing'.
They all start with the same 2 letters.
1) related to babble's c word of the day
2) add one letter to the end of a 6/39
3) related to a word meaning household jobs you might assign to your children. Add a suffix that I used a couple of times in this grid that I never really thought to use before.
don't have a c for 39. What is the word of the day ? the chemical ? I have the stem of the third clue, I'll work on that first, thanks
Dimwit - there is no o-8, but there is an o-7.
anyome know how many words?
Thanks, yes I have the 07. I've just got the answer to your third clue, Minski. I see it is an American word, no wonder I didn't get it ! :)
Whoops, just seen the time! I have to go!
ok an easier hint for the 2nd one
In American politics Abortion rights are huge. There are 2 basic sides.
It's after midnight here.
Any clues for the E7 for 44 or the second C7 for 56? I think I finally got all the others. Counting these last two, the total is 14 7's. Is this all of them?
OK got the C7 for 56. Any other clues for the E7 for 44?
1. C7 related to babble's chemical-of-the-day
2. C7 related to babble's chemical-of-the-day
