8 for 40
I CANNOT believe it won't accept 'picante"!!!!!!!!!! Such a great word!!!
And so close to makeing 'cowpie' :)
found a 7 for 44
I have 2 7s, 36 & 28
7 for 32
270-ish words today.
Snerg really should be a word
there's a 7 for 48
Ashy & Sini
My score 670 - you go for more, Ashy!
Ashy & Sini - tell me you don't have 670 WORDS.....I've only 137 for 1571.
No, there are "only" 270 words in this puzzle.
jlm_mi... oh yes - now I see an earlier post, showing that figure.... Lord! the thought of finding 670 words - I'm having the good old Victorian vapors.
Up to 143 now, so perhaps I'll get a fair score today.
Time for a cuppa.
I think if there were 670 words I'd run screaming the other direction, LOL! This takes up enough time as it is. :)
stats so far:
8: 40 (there are at least 3 more)
7: 28,36,36,36,28,44 (there are at least 7 more including a 32 and a 48, but I don't know where those 2 fit in the list above)
OK, I may be playing by myself here, but the 7-32 goes at the beginning of my list.
morning...see what damage i can do before i walk to starbucks for some java
Yep thats it at the beginning.
So, is everyone just so busy finding words they're not chatting, or is nobody here? :-D
Just finished finding 35 c`s and 4 more o`s to the 5 I already have.
i'm here, but so behind. Amazing what a workload will do to your playtime...
Yeah, parsec, work can really cut into babbling! :-p
Karin - So, you have 9xO now?
How about 7s?
Why isn't pict a word? :(
And cowpie keeps staring me in the face, daring me to type it.
wonder why sealion and seacow are not words
Yes I have 9 o`s now .
My o`s are : 1x7 , 2x6 , 4x5 , & 2x4 .
How many 8`s are we loking for ? I have two so far
Karin - Here's the confusing info on stats: The solver that uses the enable lexicon (which babble uses also) says there are 270 words. I can't get a further breakdown without looking at the word list, so I don't have one. The solver that uses a different lexicon says there are 4x8, 13x7, 41x6, 92x5, 118x4 but it also says there are only 268 words. So, how long those other 2 words are I can't say. They could just be 4s, or one or both could be a long word.
So, I think it's safe to say that there are at least 4x8. I have 1 for 40 so far.
Haven't the Babble gods seen "The Princess Bride"??? I want it to take iocane!
i'm around..hehe..just had a mini crisis..went to get my java and realized i left my debit card at the olive garden...clearly too many breadsticks have muddled my brains!
Jlm, that's one of my favourite movies! I was disappointed when it wasn't a 'real' word too.
jlm_mi. Thanx for the info. I`m at 213/2694 .I`m going to take a break ,will be back later .
OK, I've found my way to 35xC and still looking for 3xO (5,5,6) but at 214/2544 I have
OK, I have more stats. This is based on the 268 total word count, so there are 2 missing words somewhere. Words per starting letter:
16 4 15 9 4
20 7 22 8 0
11 6 15 3 1
3 40 9 22 0
8 41 3 1 0
Knowing that 8 L's start with the L in the bottom left leads to several words, including a couple 7's.
Thanks, fnurt. I had 6 words there, but no 7s. Found 1 and that should help me find the other!
For those who don't get it, if a word can be started in a couple different places, the chart gives credit to the FIRST letter than can possibly start it, reading left to right, top to bottom. So the 8 words that start with the bottom L cannot possibly be started with the other L.
if it takes 'orcs' (in past grids) why won't it take 'ents'?
Tolinya - guess I was wrong about that G. I have not found anything with it yet...
I laugh everytime I see 'iocane,' 'cause I bet one of these days, it'll work its way into the English lexicon. Let's see, as "a non-exsistent, oderless, tasteless, highly lethal powered poison from the movie, The Princess Bride."
LOL - It sounds like such a real thing!
It never takes ents. I've tried in every puzzle I found the word. Obviously not LOTR fans.
ok - but what are 'orcs' if not LOTR creatures?
"Any of several cetaceans"
did Tolkien get orcs from there, or did the dictionary take it from Tolkien? ;)
We-who! Got my first seven for 28 :)
Does anyone have a hint for the 7-48 or any of the 8s?
The 8-40 I have is a plural of a 7-28 and shines.
the one 7 for 28 I have starts with r - no plural - so there are more 7 for 28's?
I've 6 l words starting from the bottom, but cannot see any 7 letter ones. Are they common words ?
the one I have is pretty common
Stuck at 124 for 1357, with three 7's and one 8.
What kind of puzzle is this that it wont accept rentacow?
any clues for the 7 leading to an 8? Pleeeease?
LOL Mal! rentacow:
for your personal supply of early morning milk
what does the shiny word begin with, and any clues for the l 7s please ?
Hi playful - our milkman doesn't call in our apartment block anymore - so
why won't it take sealion ?
exactly Mal - straight back to the source. no messing for us!
dimwit - it begins with an l
Got an eight, nine, and ten with a little help from a2zwordfinder! Starts with d.
every time i come back i want to type 'placard,' when the R is just not in the right place. Argh!
the 7 beginning with 'L' I've just found could come from rentacow...
The 2 L words that are 7 letters that come from the lower left are not common words, but they only differ from each other by one letter.
The 7s I have so far, in alphabetical order, are:
There is a 7 for 48 that I can't find yet.
RFH - How many points for the 8/9/10?
Thanks playful an Jlm_mi, I have both now.
I'm stopping for today. Not having found any of the real goodies I may not sleep sound tonight. But then rentacow will cheer me up in the morning no doubt.. ;)
Christine you have EMail
I`ve just found an 8/55 and have two more : 8/65 , 8/40.
From the 8 I just found I got a 9/72.
What letter does the 9 for 72 start with. Please
That 9/72 has just made a 10/91.
Any clues for the 8/9/10?
Clue for the 9/72: It`s the lenth of time an ordained minister`s is in office.
jlm_mi. I`ve just found the 7/48. It comes before the 7/28 & 7/44.
Thanks Karin for the 7/48 placement, as well as for the clues for the longer words. I may not get much more in, but I'll focus there when I can play. :)
the 7 / 48 is a type of fish scale LOL
jlm_mi. Just got another 2x 7 so thats wrong .In reverse 7/44, 7/28 , 7/36 ,/7/28 ,7/48 ..........................
Karin, what does the 8 for 55 start with please?
Have you found those d`s yet ?
No, need help please :)
if you get the 8 you can get the 9 & 10.
I did find the D's, thank you!
The minister clue is not helping me.
peri - a clue and the point values were given below.
Karin - So, your 7s go like this?
May I have a clue for the 8 please.
They are all d`s
I don't think there's really any better clue to give. It doesn't have another meaning, or sound like anything else . . .
marigold, have you found the 8,9 and 10 that start with D?
Any chance of telling us what the second letter for the 8,9,10 is ? Pleeeeese ?
Found the 8 for 55 that starts with D but using Google and looking at lots of sites. Now for the 9 and 10 :)
dimwit: i (eye)
should have read: by using Google
The 8 h is a word I`ve not heard of before . I was just messing about with the letters ,then came up with the h 6/33 first .
Great help for the 8H Karin - Had the 6/33 and just added 2 letters!
Any chance you can confirm the order of the 7s below?
Found the 9 and the 10 that start with D, yea for me. Thanks for the help
jlm_mi. I`ve not got all the 7`s yet but your tally has helped thanx .3 more to get.
I've got the biggies ! yay ! :D
Thanks all !
I've only managed 2 Os so far, a 5 for 10 and a 4 for 6. Can anyone tell me the values for the others please ?
dimwit - someone (can't remember who now, maybe karin) gave the values for all the Os this morning.
marigold, I only have 139, I will keep looking for a little while longer.
I only found numbers of letters, not points for the Os. I've tried loads of combos, but not got very far, that's why I wanted the next level of help, the points for each one, to give me a clue as to where I might be going wrong....
Anyone about before I give up and log out ?
I'm still here.
Oh hi periwinkle. I now have a grand total of 3 Os and 3 Is, well stuck, any clues for the others please?
I have 3 o's and 5 i's.
4 for 6 and 5 for 14, same stem, and a 4 for 4 i's can you help with the other 2 you have ?
another word for idol
I have one word for idol and its plural, is there another then ?
4 for5 and a 5 for 12. A word for when you are not busy.
you must have something else then which I don't. Any clues ? I'm trying to get to 130 words before I have to call it a night !
Brill, thanks, got them. That actually gives you a third one, another 5 for 12, different end letter.
thanks, missed that last one
do you have the same o's as me ? grease, jewel, single ?
I didn't have the jewel, thanks. My word means: begining
Oh, Marianne - 'rentacow' - you silly little thing.
Marianne - do you have the two 'fish scales' words?
periwinkle - did you find the D-biggies?
Pehaps DEACON (rather than MINISTER) would be a better clue?
I thought a deacon was a minister?
