Oh, goody.... this is the new grid I waited for? (grammar, grammar)
Two sevens, for 48....
I was all excited to enter 'chomp', since that is one of my favourite words, but it's not actually in the puzzle :(
Two sevens? I can't find anything over a five.
It won't accept eyepie!
2 7's and 1 6
one 8/75 & one 9/96
22 words for 247, nothing over five letters. G'nite.
utterly gave up on yesterday's grid lol - this one *has* to be better - well maybe ...
Christine, you are sooooo sad, fancy getting all excited over a new grid just printing it off and away to see Dad.
24 words for 369 good bye
Has anyone found a use for the x? It looks so hopeful... and yesterday's was very useful!
Nope, getting nowhere with that x.
Cant find the 8 or 9, but have a 7 for 48 and two 6s for 24 and 33.
Thanks, I didn't have the 6 for 24 but have it now after a guess or two at possibilities!
I now have 54 for 926, keep hoping to break 1000 but somehow doubt it's going to happen.
A - 5
C - 13
E - 6
F - 3
H - 9
M - 5
O - 5
R - 5
V - 1
Y - 1
That includes the 9, the 8, two 7s for 48, and four 6s for 42, 54, 24 and 33.
Oh, and I did eventually manage to use the x, just once so far!
The 8 and 9 are compound words, closely related to each other :)
Kukana, May I have a definition for the 8/9 words or at least a starting letter, please? :)
how many words are in today's puzzle?
Hello out there. Is anyone else playing now?
Don't know how many words, but the 8/9 words start with O...
thanks. I will keep looking.
Found the 8/9. Thanks so much for the help.
There's a 6 / 54 using the x :)
Atalante, is it a common word. Can you give a clue, or a first letter?
It's a botanical word, not common at all. X is the second letter, that should narrow down the starting one a bit :-)
Not its not common at all! It starts with E and I only got it cos it sounds as if it should be a word LOL
posting at the same time!
How can we find out how many words there are altogether? I've hunted around before for online boggle solvers, but they all seem to list the words rather than stats and there's no point in that!
geez louise. What a weird word. Thanks Atalente and Hujkana.
At least I made a typo in both your names so no one person is more insulted :)
I don't know! But there's more than 54 lol. I've got 54 for 948 ....
I'm still on 54 for 926 so you must have some longer (or at least higher scoring) words. Are your stats much different from mine (posted below, 07.56 am log-time, whatever that means! It's nearly 7pm here at present)
I have 6xR, so there are at least 55...
seeing as divorce is a word, i really would have liked to have used vorce. ah well.
is the v the bone, or is there another one out there?
I've got exactly the same as you - except 1 more R and 1 less H. Same number of 6,7,8,9s and the same scores. But the extra R I've got is only for 7 so somewhere I've got 1 or 2 longer words. I'll do a breakdown of my 5s in a sec.
OK. My 5s ...
C - 24,18,20,20,20
E - 18
F - 22
H - 22,20,26
M - 14,20
V - 20
Ohh - there's 2Vs by the way
ooh! just got the 6 e for 54 looking for the 5. but i haven't studied trees before.
is yours a 4 for 7?
OK - I've been dumb. Kukana - your list from earlier has only 53 words in (unless I really can't count!) So actually I've got the same amount of words of each letter as you in that list plus an extra R. And now plus another V.
Vs - I've got a 4 for 7 and a 5 for 20
There is another H/5 for 26
Ah, sorry for the confusion (just been away for a while). I re-counted and I do have six Rs, not 5. So I'm missing the V for 20, but that would only add up to 946 so there must be something else too.
I'm also missing an E-5. My six Es are two 6s and four 4s.
The E5 is for 18
And now I'm going to get utterly frustrated, I'm sure, trying to find your extra E4!
Okay, I am getting confused with all the add-ons now. I have 57/4.67/995:
6xE (but I am missing a 4 here)
My five list is the same as Atalante's with the addition of an H and an O, i have 1x9, 1x8, 2x7, and 4x6. Given that I am missing an E, do those numbers match at all?
There are 59 words total.
I only have 30... I hate this puzzle.
57 words 4.65 990
I'm missing the O-5, and have the extra E-4
Wooo, got the O-5, which brings me to 58 words, 1004 points.
If your missing E is a 9 (three of my four Es are for 9 points) than that would also come to 58 for 1004
So.... where on earth can the 59th be?! LOL!
Sorry, that should be three of my four E-4s
The e that I expect some of your are missing was actually a typo for one of the other e words which turned out to be a Chaucerian spelling for a more common word.
it was a nine, so I am also at 1004. Maybe we have different e/4/9s? Mine are first, second, and sixth in my Es.
My E-9s are in the same places.
I mean E4s for 9 points, sorry, getting muddled here!
argh I just can't find the other words! Still on 55 *sigh*
runningforhome, on the upside of things i've noticed that you sprint and get lots of words just before the grid closes. :)
i have to end with 41/833. study day!
Hey, runningforhome--is that 59 from a solver using the same dictionary, or a different one?
stuck at 34 :(
only have 2 E words 4/ and 4/6. Any clues for the others would be appreciated. I can't find the word using the X.
One of the E-6 words is an extension of an E-4 for 9. I didn't think it would be a word but typed it anyway and it was accepted.
The other one is the x-word. Imagine a curvy bridge support, if you see what I mean, that exists no longer. Not that this is the meaning of the word, but it's what I thought when I typed it! LOL! The curvy bridge support is another 4-letterword in the grid for 9 points (but not starting with e)
There an E word 6/54 using the x
Tackling the H word - I've got 6 4s and 3 5s. What am I missing????
parsec - it says it supports multiple dictionaries, so there could theoretically be more or less words.
Atalante, I have four H-5s, for 22, 26, 20, 26 Hope that helps.
Giving up with 58, it's nearly 10.30pm here and I need to sleep!
Atalante - I have four h-5s.
I really need to start refreshing the log before posting.
*smacks head* that was so obvious - thanks guys :)
Starting late today....any clues for the 7's? I found the 8/9.
I have no idea how many words there actually are. I know I'm missing some that were mentioned, but I'm at 52 and about to give up :(
Hi cz. Start with 5's for 20 and add a prefix :)
Oh, and both 5's start with 4's plus 1 letter
Giving up at 58 too
Any clues for the 'y' word?
THanks fit1...I got them immediately after your hint.
Sometimes I can't believe what I miss.
The y-word...it's kind of gross
I'm stuck on the 6/24...what letter does it start with?
I don't have a 6/24. The only 6 I have is 6/54. How many letters or points is the 'y' word?
Thanks cz. Took me long enough, but eventually got there.
I have a 5/24, not a 6/24
I hasve aa 6/42, 6/54 and 6/33
I've got a 5/24, but don't have the 6/33 or 6/42. Any clues before I go to bed?
take a 4 /9 meaning reverberate, and add a suffix for the 6/42. The 6/54 starts with a 4/9 you walk under, then add a prefix
It's the 6/33 I don't have. Got the 6/54 a while back with the help of earlier clues.
Got the 6/42 now thanks. Still not the 6/33
start with a 4/9 meaning to change the place of something, and add a suffix. This will give you the 6/33
oops, sorry. Add a PREfix
realised that, after a struggle. Got it now thanks, but should have got it ages ago since I have the 7/48!
Finishing now. It's midnight. Didn't get to bed till 3 last night/this morning. Night.
I am confused.What does the 6/33 start with.
Found the 6/54 while searching for the 6/33.
never mind, I already have the 6/33.
I don't have either V word. Any hints?
Hints for the V's:
V5 is a bone
V4 is the second word in the name of a plant known for its skin-healing properties
Can you help with a hint for the E5/18 or the second H5/26? I have the one that ends in Y.
Also, I am stuck on the third C5/20. I have 2 of them and I can't get the third!
Can anyone help me with the o-5?
Never mind, I got it.
perwinkle.... you have mail
the senond h/26. You wreak....when you cause a ruckus
I am still struggling with the o/5 and the e/5. Any help
Can't help you on the e5, but the o5 sounds a lot like a certain vegetable you often find in soups.
Thanks running. I have tossing letters around in that corner forever. Finally got it :)
Why doesn't it take comfy?
still only have 54 for 942. I am a sorry dog :(
Marigold. I think those letters go in order in this puzzle :)
Soooo, who wants to give me a hint on the other 7-letter word? I have the one starting with R (hopefully they both don't start with R).
oops Mari. That should read I DON'T think those letters go in order
running, I hate to be the bearer of ill tidings, but there are 2 r/7's
Well, as soon as I read that, fit1, I saw the other, so thank you. :)
Thanks I got the H5/26. Still hunting for the E5/18 and the last C5/20.
The O5/14 is a botanical term for "a sheath formed at the node of a stem by the fusion of two stipules, as in the rhubarb plant". I didn't know the word got it by noodling.
The first 2 c/5 20 begin and end with the same 2 letters. Only the middle letter is different. The third means to have a desire for something
my cup would runneth over if I could get the e/5. I would go to sleep a happy woman. Any clues at all?
I GOT IT> I GOT IT
OK got the C5. I actually had the first one and the third one, missing the second one but your hints were great. :-)
Now, fit1, please share a clue for the E5. I'm going insane.
oh boy. The e/5 is the guy who hosts a show
cz- master of ceremoines is what I have for an e/5
if there are only 59 words in this puzzle, I have 55 of them. I think that's pretty good...for me :)
That's what I have too.
Thanks for the clue Sparrow. :)
How many Es and Os are there? I have six of each.
there are 7 e's and 7 o's
e are 4/9, 4/9, 6/42, 5/18, 4/6, 4/9, 6/54
o's are 5/14, 4/6, 4/7, 8/75, 9/96, 7/60, 4/7
This puzzle is pooping hard : (
Thanks so much, busymom! I found the two I was missing. All I have left to find is one R-word...
Found it! :D
i am still short an r word, care to share
rabbit - if you are still there the r words are 4/7, 7/48, 6/24, 6/33, 7/48, 4/7
still here, but no time really left. Will see what I can do.
which one are you missing. i'll give you a clue
this is the defination.
Any of several marine fishes of the family Echeneidae, having on the head a sucking disk with which they attach themselves to sharks, whales, sea turtles, or the hulls of ships. Also called shark sucker
Like this is a common word!
think of the creamer mom puts in her coffee, sounds like that with an r
