How come 'feets' isn't allowed, as in, "Many feets of wonder,"?
'Cause its 'feats.' Learn something new everyday.
feeties, who knew, wasn' t that one of yesterdays words?
A seven for 44... won't let me make it plural though, and I think it should. :(
I just got that same 7 for 44, and I tried the same thing. I tried it with a Y as well. No go.
Oops, I did mean with a Y, not plural. Ah well.
45 for 564, and I'm done for the night. One 7, and five 6's.
11 6s, 2 7s
67 / 4.69 / 887
Going for a sleep for a bit!
Got a 5, 6, 7 and two 8's from a 5 letter root word.... The 8 is only worth 40 though...
Sorry, should be two 7's and ONE 8
Thanx for that .Got the 8 .
Anyone used the q?? I so want to make squeegee but there aren't quite enough e's in the right places!
2 words with Q so far
Oh yeah, there are two rather obvious ones! Thanks.
words are only obvious when you suddenly realise they're there ;)
those Os are a bit of a waste of space aren't they...
I've used two of the os
93 words for 1326, can't find any more but I bet there are loads of others!
There must be at least 150-200 words, because I never get more than half, on my first run-through, and so far, I have 61 words for 778 points.... nine 6s, three 7s, but only one 8.
Back this evening... this wild social life is REALLY cutting into my babble time!
66 for 872... that's me stuck now!
I wasn't going to play today but I'm finished working already. Any other Brits annoyed by the puzzle's refusal of 'arsed'? Pah!
..yeah and 'defo' and loads of other abbrievations I seem to be coming up with today!
anybody used the 'I' (eye) so far?
I found the eight, and the two sevens and of course the root five that go with it, but I can't find a related six...
what does it begin with pleeeease?
I thought I didn't have the 6, then I realized the order goes 5, 7, 7, 8, 6 and that yes, I had the 6 (ages ago).
First timer here. I was about to plead along with britneysdead, when I found them using Q's clue. Thx :)
Ah ha, found it. Thanks, Q.
how many words are there today
Could someone with more than 68 words please post their stats?
Well I have 96 words for 1382, I hoped someone with over 100 would post stats! Anyway here's what I have:
A - 10
D - 2
E - 5
F - 3
G - 4
H - 3
O - 2
Q - 2
R - 7
S - 26
T - 13
U - 1
w - 18
That includes one 8 for 40, five 7s (44, 44, 28, 32, 28) and sixteen 6s.
I just found an online solver and it says 108 words for this grid.
Kukana, thanks for posting your counts. I only have 91 words, but if it helps you, I have a few more in these categories:
D x 3
G x 5
O x 3
U x 2
I have 4 F's. 3 for 7 pts and 1 for 8 pts.
I have five F's.
16, 8, 7, 7, 7 in order.
I can only find 2 7's so far both "t" s, any clues?
I have 2 7's that are S's.
OK, that f for 16 is driving me crazy. It seems like it has to be a 5 but I have tried every possible combo of letters and can't find it.
Neeevvveer miiiind... :-)
I can find the f for 16 but i still only have 4 f's in total and can't find the s sevens.
The F for 16 IS a 5. I got it through random letters - no definition, but sounds EXACTLY like another word you will have - just spelt differently!
MamaJill, I have the s/7 that has to do with the beach. May I have a clue for the other s/7 please?
7 for 44 has to do with waste drainage
Thank you marigold, got it. :)
marigold, I only have 53. Will only play a little while longer.
marigold, do you have the last 7 letter word?
are you looking for the two T7's?
If you have one of them, the only difference is the last letter
do not have the last one yet
granadan, I have two s/7's and two t/7's. What does the last 7 letter word start with please?
I checked out the last letter counts. I have four F words.
i am missing the 7 between the 44 and the 32
You mean theres a fifth? Oh Bug**r....
Sorry - only got the same four as you then! LOLs.
Must go to bed - young baby asleep, 5 dachshunds asking to go to bed, and Im being kicked to death by this bump. Must snooze!
I have four F words all are 4 points. I am having trouble seeing the other ones.
Looking thru old posts - it has to start with either an s or a t though i think
I know, But I can't figure it out yet. :(
marigold - my four F words point values are, in order, 5, 4, 4, 4. There must be a fifth F word if you have only four F's, all worth four points. (Say that ten times fast :)
made a mistake my 4 f word points are
I'm sorry, not point values, but how many letters they have.
The point values are
5 for 16
4 for 8
4 for 7
4 for 7.
There, that should make more sense.
It really bugs me that this game will not accept 'fest.'
I just got a fifth F word, four letters for 7 points.
So now for the F's
5 for 16
4 for 8
4 for 7
4 for 7
4 for 7.
I am missing the 5 for 16. I also have an other 4 for 7 F word
marigold, I only have 3 f words.
all that I am missing is the 5 for 16
Jstarra, how are you making out?
The 5 for 16 F word does not have a definition in the Dic.com. Otherwise I could pass along a hint. Oh, it does NOT start Fo.
That 5 for 16 f word sounds like another 4 letter f word in the puzzle which means costs
Marigold, for the F16, think DUES - I'm sure you already have that word - now, think of a different way to spell it. It has no definition in this dictionary, just one of those things that the Babble-Lord likes to toss our way.
I have the s-44 but not the other 44....any clues?
DaveC, which S word do you have?
I have the one that pertains to drainage
marigold, any luck with the last f word. I have tried every combo and no luck.
The other is found at the beach.
I saw that clue but it didn't help me. :(
found in the water at the beach.
starts with S
think of what you deal with when you fish :)
I am on that track...kinda knew it was an s but cannot, for the life of me, make a word with what I am thinking.
Dave - I think someone posted a clue, that it begins with T, but nothing more... frankly, I need a heck of a lot more, to find it....
'specially at Chaz' spot
duh....I got it.
Christine, are you looking for a clue for the 8 letter word?
You're welcome, doesn't it feel good to finally find the darn word?
sure does :)
DaveC, do you have the F/16 word?
I have tried every combo and just cannot find it :(
sounds just like an f-7 that you have, just spelled differently
I know it starts FE
Yea!, Finally got it.
I only have 73 for 1000. I was away. Can I use the excuse that I'm out of practice? Will you buy it?
Are there seven or six 7s? I have S44, S38, T32 and T28... I think I'm looking for a T-value unknown and an S-value unknown... and perhaps another 7/44, start letter unknown... I'm awfully ignorant on this point!
Hi, fit -- I have only one T8/40 for points. Is there another...<oh no>..)
that sounds fine, fit1: excellent!
i haven't a good excuse for 48/599. let's see, a few busy days away, and a new semester tomorrow?
marigold are you still here?
My 7's are
what other ones are out there?
thought it was you
knew for sure when you said new semester tomorrow :)
yes yes :)
when does yours start?
I'm sick of seeing OOOOOPS.... I've given this bloomin' board at least fifteen good looong words, and it keeps tossing them aside,,,, darned Babble-Lord!
Will someone share clues on the other 7s and 8s????
ooh, how exciting. and do call - i'm done every day by 3.
u got it
anyone want to share the o's? I have one very obvious one that means debt.
At 1:15, Kukana posted one 8/40, and five 7s, for 44, 44, 28, 43, 28.
At 4:56, Blubber said s/he had two T7s, so...
A seven for 43 is impossible, just for the record.
My 7's are
S- 44 stuff you find on a beach
S- 44 related to drainage
S- 28 plural of a 6, related to Hindu funerals
T- 28 both of these are based off a T- 5, a very common word -- something that goes hand in hand with love
Delta... you pickin' on my poor li'l browser, that can't read?
I meant to type 44 - sorry 'bout that.
Now, any clues, any one?
As some one said, when you know what it is, the word just jumps at you..
Thanks MammaJill, I didn't have the 'beachy' word..... in Southern California, the second word applies to what's found on the beach... yeccch.
Do you know if there's more than one 8?
clue for stuff on the beach: in northern california, we had these onion/palm-like things that we'd jump on - water would leak out. sometimes this word is good in soup, too.
oh never mind!!! you Did have it. my bad. well, not that i would put those in my miso. :D
Cannot get the fourth 4 for 7. Is it obscure ? Also have only one o word. Not been well today, so will have low score ( allright even lower than normal)!
Dimwit-dear - what lette does it start with? (oh, you know what I mean).
Be well soon.
um...the fourth which letter? the t MammaJill mentioned? it has to do with wills. join the club! one o here, too.
wish sweety worked.
Sorry I meant the 4th f for 4
Just got another o 4t8, anagram of the one you have :)
Is the hindu funeral with an S? Is it a common word?
s yes, well known activity historically.
hmm...it is if you love your husband enough to burn.
that o word is unreal! :) thank you, dimwit.
Fit1 - it is, and I guess it's common, if you had the misfortune to be a widowed Hindu lady...
Nice to have some doggy words for a change ! Still cannot get the 5th f word, another 4 letter one....
I know nobody will believe this. I just went through all the possible s combos in the dictionary, and I found the word. What some people won't do!!!!!!!!!1
me either. wish frau would work.
Dimwit ... I imagine the word you need is the one that has no definition, except as an acronym for Flight Emulation Test System.
Hope this helps...
Thank you Christine, such a subtle clue ;)
I thought I had tried every whichway, but obviously missed that one...
81-1123. Where am I gonna find 27 words in a hurry :(
are all the d's 4 letter ones ? I have 2 x4
what are the most ridiculous words you find yourself repeatedly trying in this one? for me, they have to be "SEGA", as in the old videogame console, and ... "QUEEFS" ........
I have one five letter "D" word for 14 points.
There is a d/5, Dimwit. It surprised me that it's a word, as I know it as an artist
yeah i already tried queefs..lol
ty for the clue regarding southern california beaches...i agree yick!
If you know it as an artist, fit1, doesn't that mean it has to be a word ? Or is it a swear word known only to artists perhaps ?
i also keep seeing SARS...lol (not that that's funny but ya know...)
yeah Dimmy, but it is the NAME of an artist. However, when I put the acCENT on the other syLAble, it means something entirely different. LOL
I keep seeing deflea - just done my cats so it's on my mind - not that they had any - it's just to make sure you understand ...
Got the 5 letter d thanks - was sure I'd tried that one
I also keep seeing rash, harsh and hasty ( as the ent said to the hobbit). Am I missing any 7s or 8s ? I have the 3 s and 2 ts.
Darned, bloomin' blinkin' game -- I want my life back... is there an intervention, or is this a support group?
I need 23 words, and I must leave, in ten minutes - I know I'll think of more words, while I'm at dinner - but no computer at the restaurant...
Quick, buy a wireless laptop and take it with you.............
12 step program involves spelling 375 words with the following letters e and h
if you can do it you can bow out of babble forever....
