29 words possible today. I'm sorry I started this.
And here i've already got a tenth of them!
Are you serious, 29? Ugh.
The Divine Miss
if you have got 29 out of this then you are my hero!
*bowing at your feet*
I feel stuck at 13 words (2 5's and 2 6's!)
stuck at 19 words
The Divine Miss
oooh...a 5 for 22...lol...big score! ;)
that brings me up to 10 words :-\
I have 11 words, with three 5's and one 6.
13 words. Done now, back later.
I'm at 17 words, and probably going to sleep soon.
29 ??? poss. geez.
Found another H, another N, and a Y and am quitting for now at 20 words (two 6's and three 5's)
mmph. have a whole 10 words.
is your y a 4 for 9? (not sure if you're still on.)
nope, it's a 5 for 22.
yes, one of them is
There aren't many Y-4's for 9 there could be... So now I have two Y's.
feel silly re: the other y.
5 c's. 2-5's, 1-6, 2-4's
4t8: your 5 letter Cs....
point value for each?
they're both 14.
got it! 23 words for 260
by the way, how many h's do you have?
eight Hs....one 5 for 16
hmm. thanks. me too. stuck at 21.
most welcome...I'm totally stuck at 23
think I shall call it a night..... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I found a j !
OMGosh - good thing I believe this is a random selection, or else I'd be really grouchy..... oh yes, I said I wouldn't be playing today........
25 for 269, but I can't find the 5-letter h!
Oh, duh! Got it. So 26 for 285.
23 for 270. will sleep soon...don't see those 2 n's, or the o.
I`ve got 8 h`s but not the h for 6!
All my five ns are 4-letters, four of them are just 4 points each, the other is 10 points.
h for 6? oof.
found another n.
my only 6's are the a & c.
25/278. no O.
Found 1 O 4/7 .
wow! i've been trying combo after combo of o with the v, h, and y. i'ill keep looking.
Try the o in the middle of the grid .
I have 8 H's but none of them are for 6 - does a H6 definitely exist? The only reference in the chat I can find is from people looking for it...
me too. Karin, Thank you. finally! 26/285
Well done. I`m on 26/301
:) this is what i have
a: 10, 16, 4, 27
c: 14, 14, 33, 12, 9
h: 7, 7, 16, 7, 7, 7, 7, 10
n: 10, 4, 4, 4, 4,
y: 22, 9
There are two C-6s, both for 33 points.
27 for 318, exactly the same as the ones posted by 4t8 with the additional c6 at the start of my c's.
Kirsty - perhaps the word you're looking for is the H5 for 16 points?? not H6??
That's one that eludes me, still.
Do you colour you hair christine (hint hint)
OK, 29 for 348. Is that definitely all? What a strange puzzle.
Thanks Christine - earlier Karin wrote "I`ve got 8 h`s but not the h for 6!" which is what made me wonder...but I certainly can't find one either!
Is anyone else getting driven mad by flashing ads down the side of the screen?? (Next to the log) I keep getting a horrible bright red one saying 'WINNER' (ha!) and now there's an even worse one that's bouncing from side to side, also telling me I've won something. It's enough to drive me away from the site altogether :-(
Granadan -- thanks for the clue, which set me to look for "Nice'n'Easy".... oh, I'm kidding.
But I did get the word, because of your clue... thanks.
Now, H4, N4, N5 and O4 if there's only 28 words.
Onward, Babble soldiers....
Do a search for something called smilwey central - when downloaded it has a pop swatter which shifts it. If stuck i could send you a link?
sorry - that should be SMILEY central ;-))
Aaah, Kukana, I'm a WINNER, here, and at the tope of my email screen, and sometimes on a search engine's screen... and there's a host of people in Nigeria (widows and children of deposed Army Colonels) who want to give me a share of millions of dollars.... but heck, it's like advertising on television, it offsets the cost of the programming, and I don't pay out money to anyone.... I guess that's how Mr.Babble keeps the board free to us.
2 As and one of the C 33's to go *sigh* and they will probably take me the rest of the day!
Thanks everyone, I don't mind ordinary ads at all, but the flashing ones give me a headache :-( I have the ordinary Google popup-stopper but the one at the side of the log doesn't seem to be a popup. I'll investigate smiley central and see if it helps. I don't know anyone who clicks on popups or bouncy/flashing ads so I should think they'd lose revenue rather than generating it for the site.
Kirsty - Granadan gave a clue for a'hair color"
Kukana - and SEVENTH c-word???
I am still trying to find the 'j'. any hint?
Yes, 7 c-words.
6 for 33
5 for 14
5 for 14
6 for 33
4 for 12
4 for 9
5 for 20
(the 5 for 20 which was my last one is like the 4 for 9)
The j is for 14 points and could be made two ways on the grid!
Kukana - thank you for the other Cword (now, that looks like a Welsh word, eh?)
I just make my window small enough that I don't see the flashing ad.... just wide enough to see the scores.
Wendrie, thanks - so obvious and yet I hadn't thought of it! I sent a message to Playbabble asking them to remove the flashing ads (I've seen other people on other sites complaining as they can apparently cause seizures in epileptics, and migraines in others - all I get is a headache and dizziness but that's bad enough). But in the meantime I'll go for a smaller window which solves the problem perfectly :-)
Goodnight (?goodmorning) y'all - it's 5:15am, time for my nap.
Still to find, 3 words O for 7, and Ns for 10 and 4.... I'll try late.
The trouble is, if I go to bed with a problem on my mind, I keep waking - often with a word, if not THE word.
any clues on the A / 16??? Please????????
duh - got it
Think how you feel, when you can't find an obvious word ... not frustrated, but?? (it starts with A in right hand column)
Any clues for the J word?
Nevermind, got it!
I have four-As, seven-Cs, eight-Hs, one-J, three-Ns (missing ao & 4), missing one-O, and I have two-Ys..... a total of 28 words.....I'm missing one.....
The dratted O word -- is it common? is it a real word? or is it an undefined thingie, found only by noodling?
Just taliking to myself.... I found the bloomin' O-word! Still need th 10-point N-word, and the unknown 29th word.
I'll be back, to give myself an update....
Well, this is an anti-climactic puzzle, isn't it?
Christine, there are 5xA
need the c-33 at the beginning, the 6th c, and an a. what a puzzle this is.
it's all becoming a mirage.
4t8 - the first C33 -- think of paying money to the store employee - but you can't quite make THAT word....
Have I further confused you??
What a great clue!
Did we ever get an answer as to whether one of the Hs is six letters?
Okay, Math time - my score, so far, is 27/328, and the possible score is 29/348; I know I'm missing N/10, so the A-word should also be worth 10-points... and they must be 5-letter words.... am I right?
No, both are 4-letter words.
Actually, it's mathematically impossible to make a 10-point 5-letter word in this puzzle. It would require a 2-point letter.
Scratch that. I can't add! :-p Still, they're both 4 letters.
i've just tried to make very strange not-quite-there combos relating to paycheck, cashout, and payout, all beginning with c.
but thank you! i will keep looking.
Soho - at 6:11am, Granadan posted a clue for the H5 - the other words are for 4-letters.
4t8 - reread your post.... you were close on one word.
jlm_mi - okay, 4letters=10 points, not 5letters=5 points...
Thanks, Christine. I just stumbled on the H word that I was missing, which brings me to 29 words, and 348 points. Now maybe I can go take care of my house.
Didja miss me - it's been so long?
I have one A/10points (relating to the sea), is thee another 10point word?
I have two 10 point A words.
It's frustrating to be only one word away from a dinky little puzzle. I can handle 4000 point puzzles where I know I'll get about half the words, but this...
Christine I'm with Marianne. Get off the phone so I can call you please.
Christine, the word you're missing is a word for an Indian nurse.
29 for 348 finally this is a miserable puzzle
Soho - thank you, I'd just noodled that into the screen... not really expecting it would take, then I realized it's a real-true-word... who'd have thought it?? Sometimes I just put in letters, without really looking at the word that's made.
So, what will I do with the rest of my day.....
Oooops (as I see, so often) I forgot to thank all the clue-givers.... thank you.
Does anyone out there need any clues? (Hey, that was one).
I'm still missing the last a, and three cs (one is for 20, and one is for 33).
Oops, and one for 14.
i always thought the nurse was spelled ayah.
4t8 - ????
This grid stinks! I'm missing two Hs--16 and a 7, and an nx4. I think my problem may be that I don't color my hair.
oh god i'm slow! never saw that a
sorry about my Big, Big mouth. :(
If that's the woest thing that ever happens in our lives, 4t8, I'd say we'd be pretty fortunate.
woot we're back from our whirlwind trip across the eastern us...must catch up on my babbling...pretty sure my name is no longer on the list of scores...sigh...oh well starting fresh is always nice...mulher is downstairs with the child...hehe....
thanks for the "good" hint 4t8! lol
Can you believe it won't take oreo??
clearly the babble guru's are not "with it"
ya know i just noticed if i only have the babble puzzle up and my listing i don't get those flashy things on the side of the website...(after reading the posts regarding this)
although my favorite is the one for the search engine related to finding sexy singles in my area.heheh
Evening everyone, I see we have a tricky little puzzle today ! I've managed 14 so far but I'm slowing down! Might need some help from some of you brighter brains! To start, I only have 2 a's so far, nautical and an Indian nanny. Any help with the others?
ok and i've got 9 words and i've got both those a's...hehe 3 left...
although according to a post earlier (i think jlm) the points should be 10,16,4,27 and then I think there's the other one for 10 (was posted early enough in the puzzle that I don't think she had them all yet)
doh my bad it was 4t8...must give proper credit where credit is due...
For one of the A's, think Romeo and Juliet...Juliet says this to her nurse.
and just me talking to myself don't know 4t8's gender so sorry if i used the wrong gender (i'm almost positive jlm is a female) but am not sure of 4t8's
I have 2 for 10 each, is the Juliet one different from the Indian nanny/nurse then ?
ok got that 4 pt from the juliet clue..didn't know juliet said that hehe...
yeah so i think the a's points should be 10,4,10,16,27
still cannot get the a for 27, any clues ?
Pah. 26 words. I give up.
Remind me not to open the game if I'm not about to play it. Seems it definitely affects your rankings! As if it really matters!!
till hoping for a clue to the a x27 - Please ?
dimwit, the first 3 letters of it are in your second to last post
Super thanks I think I look too hard sometimes ! 6 to go :)
any hints for 1st c for 33?
Christine had a good clue at 11.18 I think,
are there 2 for 33 then?
is the o 4 letters or 5, I see there are 2 conflicting messages.
dimwit...there are two c/33s, and the o is a 4.
O-word is 4 letters and similar to the name of a state.
According to the scrabble dictionary, there is another o word, ohone, that fits the grid, that isn't accepted, yet the one that is , has no meaning ! Pity they don't use Chambers or Oxford, it would be a better test of word power I think!
I cannot find the other 6/33! It's the only word I'm missing! Even wordfinder is no help...
My c's so far are, 33, 14, 14, 9, 20 if there is another 33, how many letters is the 7th?
Any clues at all ? Like which c perhaps ?
I have 4 words to go.
Forget that, I just found one for 12 !
you're missing two Cs, both using the same C to start. for the second 33, think of things that are in Arizona.
the 2 c's i just got are related to a color
not too much of those things in arizona..at least not around phoenix...try southwestern california...there's even a town named it...hint hint near a place the marines call 29 stumps
Finally done it! 29 for 348
I know you mean well but I'm Welsh not American...........
okay, then try looking at your c/14s--add a letter into one of them, and you'll have the 33.
hmmmm....this word is similar to a common desert plant can be certain color and is similar to a sound you make when tasting bad food....
i need some hints for the c 14's please
finding the one 14 will show you the other.
I have seven h words all 4 letters getting an amazing 7 points... any hints on the last remaining h word???? That will be it for the puzzle too!
the h for 5 is the hair colouring one...
thanks for the c help I 'm looking now.....
Got the c, thanks all, a deep valley I would have said - searching google for the 29 stumps took me into very strange territory, but it didn't mention that word!
At 04:17 pm dimwit said...
the h for 5 is the hair colouring one...
Thanks as soon as I read that - it jumped out! Finally.... that should be it :)
I have 2 words to go and 5 minutes to find them before I have to take a break...( hubby wants PC).. an n and a y. I have the web y, any clue for the other ?
FINALLY found the other 6/33. What a stupid word.
Done now, hopefully there's a better grid tomorrow.
woot got the h5 hehe and dim i swear we were talking about a y word...DOH!!! sorry about that..misdirecting hints...
dim thanks for the y hint...on the web one
my clue for the 29 stumps, etc were the clues for your missing y
15 words so far...14 to go and only 6 more hours..sigh think i'll get it???
ok i found the deep valley c for 33 then found the 5 for 14 related to it..DOH do we have a clue for the other c 5 for 14?
Right I'm back ! Thanks Tolyina, I got that y word as soon as I just read your messages! odd roundabout that it gave me the c too! (and thanks everyone else)
I did think that it was spelt with a double c though, tha'ts why I missed it before. That leaves me with just one to get, an n - are they all 4's ? so far 3 of them start with the same two letters- does that go for another ?
Sorry T missed your plea for the c14 - have you got it yet ?
Is anyone there ?
hi dimwit; i'm back.
the first c-33 is driving me batty and encarta isn't helping.
Thank goodness, I thought I was all alone!
which c 33 do you have ?
the arizona/utah one
do you need any hints?
oh, i'm also missing the last c.
Christine at 11.18 had the best clue for the c you just need to take out one letter from that word. I have one word left, one of the ns for 10 I've tried so many combinations!
ergh! i found the 20.
if you get it you could become a seal. or militant, at the very least...ok. that was a cheesy clue.
Oh thank you , thank you, I have it ! These words look so easy when you have them, I was looking for a 5 letter, must have missed the count in the messages somewhere! Can I help you with anything else before I go 4t8? :)
yay! happy for you. :)
um...does the c mean anything? i was told one of my three c's are close...i guess this is pretty specific, but is the 4 point letter an h or a y?
If Tolyina comes back, I am rowing away soon ( your clue for c 14)
sheet of paper related to quire, or a parlimentary report.
thanks! i have that one. it's the c-33 i don't. that's okay; i'm one away. otherwise, yes, rowing away to blue churches in arizona would be a great idea.
It's easiest if you concentrate on the word it isn't, the person who takes your money at the checkout, the bank, the cafe, with one letter missing that isnt in the grid anyway.....
thank you; i Can't believe that's a word!!! omigoodness thank you!
The rowing was for Tolyinya - sorry should have said her clue...
oops. it's an excellent one. hopefully you'll return, Tolinya.
Croeso, you're welcome :-). It's 1.41 am here so I'll tootle off to bed early for once! Last chance for any clues before I log off for the night ?
not for me. do sleep! and thank you for all your help.
ok i'm back sorry had baby duty hubby is in military and off on a trip..sigh
will probably get hosed tonight in babble world as no one else is on..hehe oh well..will try and find the c word i have an idea
well crap so i can get 2 stinking 33's but can't find the other c for 14...sigh
Tolinya.. you might need a paddle to find the other c-14 word (hint, hint)
yup yup down that river now thanks!!!
i am missing the last c word. the ones that i have are 33,14,14,33,12,9.
Can I have a clue for the last one. Please

10 pt can be used to describe a color
Thank you so much. Tolinya, I got it.
just need 1 more n..............got the military branch, zero, time, enert gas (out of the 4's that is got all the rest)
