I've only done the D so far ...
Found 13x D's
including D4/6/8 sequence
I have the same sequence, which makes me feel better about my dismal score yesterday.
well a lot of the yesterday's words were weird.
*pictures runningfor home nodding and saying "that is iwis the case!" *
All today's D words are much more common.
and yet, i'm only so far seeing 9 of them.
Let's make the letter D BabbleStreet's letter of the day:
D4/5 relating to handling, distributing.
D4 insect repellent
D6 relating to river mouth geological feature
D4/6/8 related to removal
D4/5 relating to something owed
That's 13 D's
Of course there may be more than 13 D's ...
Well, that helped. I'll go to sleep with my 50 words for 550.
Well, 'hotmale' should totally be accepted....
55 for 614; only 7/6s and one 8, so far, but it's past 3am, in Los Angeles, so g'night.
OOh, joy - I woke up, and found another word, worth a whopping six points! yay for me!!
So far, nothing beginning with I, or U, or Y - but the day is young.
I've found 4x Y's
You'll be abominably upset with yourself if you don't get at least one of them Christine ;)
Goodmorning, Shortseer - is it early where you are... it's going to be another scorcher in L.A...but that's fine with me, it's the reason I'm here, not in London.
I do have the one Y-word, (hadn't noted it on my breakdown sheet..), perhaps I'll find the others after a shower and a cuppa.
10:30 at night here.
I've been coming back here intermittently tonight hoping to find some stats.
(while you had your 2-hour's sleep for the night, seemingly)
How many words have you got Shortseer? I'll post my stats up, but I've only got 75 words and you've probably got more LOL
Are you in NZ or Oz?
I'm retired, so if I feel drowsy during the day, I can nap.... generally, if I get on the board, I too keep coming back, and don't get anything eles done...I've almost quit reading and sewing, since I discoveed Babble... obsession or addiction, indeed.
Still got a couple more starting letters to checkout, but i'm not expecting many more (if any) from them
I only allow myself to babble once a week (on the weekend) ... but i'm home sick with the flu ... so i'm treating myself to some extra babble sessions.
Something good from something bad! :D
Be well soon.
Still only 62/658.I need to spend today typing up reponses to interrogatories, to sear the tail of the Evil Dentist, and spend time at Staples, copying various Proofs and Responses,so I probably won't Babble until the end of the day. On the up-side, I'm getting a mini class on legal terms (my lawyer explains the term, each time he gives me something to work on). In fact, I found a D6 in the grid, them juggled the letters and found another, because of something he told me... all this, and maybe a cash settlement.
There are 124 words in the grid. For 123 of them I can give stats:
Got any point values for the big words? I have an 8-45, a 7-28 and 6s 33,21,27,27,24,27,33,24,24,24,21
I just started, but I have a 6/24 I bet you don't, right after the 33.
I'm missing a B, I, L, 3x M, 4x T (plus the one unknown)
Just sorting out some details for the bigger words.
I seem to be missing a lot of bigger words this time :(
me too. I have about half the words now, but less than a quarter of the big ones.
parsec - Would that 6/24 likely go after my first 6/33 or after my second one?
A7 relating to white feldspar
E7 chemical extraction method
Sorry, the 6/24 would be after the first 33. Mine start 33-24-21-27-24.
Yay, got it! :-D I must have had a mental block on that area of the grid that you've helped clear up, because I just found about 8 words all at once. :)
glad I could help out =)
B6 noisy uproar
D6 mouth of river
E6 to draw out/provoke
E6 drug from ipecac
E6 small hole in material
L6 carotenoid pigment
L6 related to an endocrine gland in the body
M6 woolen material (named after the place it came from)
O6 relating to body part
T6 a way of walking or standing
Ashy & Sini
Thank you shortseer, got all the words you hinted - even if I don't know what they mean... Hope you get better soon!
Ashy & Sini
Ooh, more hints! Going hunting...
shortseer - Although I'm missing several you posted, I may also be able to help you. I think from your definitions that you may be missing an L6 and a T6. The L6 may be an adverb used to describe a person with a limp. The T6 may refer to the cover of a book.
thanks jlm ... i'll go hunting again.
and thanks sini
OMG! That T6 for standing/walking I've been trying to see it in there all morning and just couldn't! I finally just typed it in, and it took it. It took a minute for me to finally see where it fit in the puzzle though. :-p
Oh, and shortseer - You have listed 16 6-letter words and 2 blanks, but there are 19 of them total. Still one more that no one has hinted about . . .
sorry ... left one off the list.
I6 to bury
Got the L6 from your hint .. i should have had that! ... i had the related L4.
Ditto for the T6 (i had the related T5
I have 19 6's now.
I7/8 sequence - related to giving a name
I now have 7x i's rather than the 6 in jlm's breakdown ... so that's where the extra word is hiding
weird 'cause I have six Is and 4 Ns and figured that was were it was....
Does anyone know where the online solvers are? Yesterday I wanted to see what words I was missing and I tried a google search to no avail. Any help.....jlm..mi?
If you search for "boggle solver" you should find at least 2 online solvers. The boggle/tangleword solver uses the same dictionary as babble.
And I just realized I've made a mistake! There are 7xi in the solution I have, but still only 3xN, so that must be the extra word. Also, there are only 24xT. I mistakenly counted one of the i words as a T word.
This is the toughest grid I have seen in quite some time. An awful lot of the words are super-obscure.
I have tried almost everything in search of the L6 pigment. Can anyone tell me how many points it is, at least?
It is 18 points, and it is quite similar to the gland one.
I have 4 N words .
pitot is too a word; small inlet on an aircraft to assist in determing airspeed
Bleh, I should have tried that, I had thought the 6 clues were in alphabetical order. Thanks jlm.
Karin - Yep, it must be that the 4th N is the missing word in the solution.
stevedallas - Indeed, it should accept pitot!!!! I guess maybe it's considered a proper noun since it was named after Monsieur Pitot?
36 words after an hour of playing - what a grid; kudos to all of you who can see anything today!!
Back again ..
Soooo i've been hunting a T that doesn't exist!
But then i've also been hunting for an M that apparently dosesn't want to exist
I think it must be an M4 or M5
I've got :
Has anyone got an extra M ???
shortseer - Sorry about the T confusion! (and potentially making you look for another N)
I also have the same number of 4,5,6 letter M words you have, but have not yet found the 7 and 8. I'm not seeing any other 4s or 5s either, there, but will keep looking!
That L6 is related to an endocrine gland? This is the biologist in me coming out now LOL, I never knew it related to something endocrine-y. Well you learn something new everyday!
After finding all 4 N words I looked at the solver results for N. The word it is missing is 4 letters, so make the final word count 65x4.
squeeeee got the M8 :)
just found the M 8 also!! wheeee
Me too. Shouldn't that be hyphenated????
Any hints for the M7? I had hoped it would be related to the 8, but guess not.
I pretended teh little 1 on the bottom of the I as the hyphen
LOL! Di d you get any points for the hyphen?
8 for 68! including the hyphen
just kidding before anyone gets really excited
It is impressive math though!
actually it was 8.25
for the m/7, think cell division.
Then be psychic and tell me where my last missing m/5 is. =)
For M5s I still only have 5 of them, but they are:
a hydroxy acid
small DNA unit
Are yours the same?
I keep seeing pitocin, but that's just 'cuz I have babies on the brain ;-)
those are the 5 M5's i've got
(and that "donkey-like" actually means hornless)
Still missing 1x M
Must be M4 if there are 65 4's
Yep, I'm also missing an M4. And 2 B4s and a T4. Sigh . . . So close!
I was missing the brawl--kept trying to spell it in the wrong place, so I'd never tried it. did you get the animal sound m/4?
and there should only be 23 Ms, right? or did I miss a retraction?
Yes, there are 23 Ms. Just got the animal sound. Thanks!
That's what i was missing
can any give a clue for M8
I haven't been on long, and feel soooo far behind everyone else, and I'm not even understanding half the clues.
M8 ... looks like it means more than one weight
Turns out I had miscounted, and I'm actually missing 1x4 and 1x5 for the Bs. Looks like a BL, so I'll start there!
For 5s I have 3xBE and 2xBL. You?
still cant get the M8
Found the Bi-5 I was missing for a grand total of 124/1660.
First section of the M8 is a shortened form of a word meaning "Having, relating to, or consisting of more than one individual, element, part, or other component"
I'm missing a T/5. I have 2xTE, 2xTI, and a TO.
Thanks to al the help
that M4 animal sound completed the list for me. :D
I'm off now
I keep seeing topic, tonic and point!
can anyone give the point value on the m/8 word? I'm still having trouble finding it.
Thank you :) I finally found it. Oh happy Rabbit dance
I found the 8 but the seven is elusive... any hints?
m-7, I mean
There's one earlier... has to do with cell division.
Ah, found it. Thank you.
the only word I know for cell division is mitosis and it does not fit here :(
You are very close periwinkle...
not close enough, I can't find it. I am guessing it starts ME.
I have one left for six different letters. Augh!!!!
found the 7/M, thanks dimwit for the encouragement
Glad to help :)
Are all the n-words four letters?
I have only 3 n words and one of them is a 5.
I have 3 n's all 4 letters
I have the 7 that starts with M. What do the other two start with please?
I know one of the 8's starts with M. Can't find it. What letters do the other two 8's start with, please.
D & M
Thanks ZoeyMO, I will look for a little while longer.
Got the 8/D . Thanks ZoeyMO.
Anybody around to help? I still need one M and one E that are driving me crazy.
I only have two "e's" and they are both 6's
I have 3 e-6s and an e-4, and I know there's an e-7 kicking around somewhere.
There is an e-5. I feel like I've tried every combo for the e-4 but no luck.
Think of trees, fnurt... any hints on the e-5?
Put an e in front of a 4-4 you probably have.
Thanks for the e-clue, btw. My girlfriend just looked at the word and said, "That's really dumb."
