TIme for bed. Nice to come back to not a rediculously hard puzzle.
There is a word that my girlfriend slapped me for trying, but the puzzle took it nonetheless.
Anyhoo, I have the 8 for 70 (it starts with R), but not the other 8, and only one 7 for 48 so far (it is related to the 8). Anyone having better luck?
D7/D8 sundew plant(s)
An S 7 for 52
S7/52: Bees tend to do this
Any clues for the R8/70
R8/70: My mircowave did this to my tea this morning
Thanks Carmen.. got it quickly with that clue
fnurt - did you get slapped for a J word? Ewwwwwww!
Has anyone managed to find any c's or f's yet?
That was my 1st word!
Berekah West, am I seeing words miraculously appear?!
Atalante- I see what you mean now about a fishy puzzle, I thought you were reffering to the obvious one, but there are several!!
Yes you are, Berekah East. You've gotten all the good ones!!! But I got the C's ;-)
Yes, have found both Cs and both Fs. The Cs are a 4/5 singular/plural combo. The Fs are both 4 letters and are unrelated.
I think I'm missing something really obvious with the M's I only have 7,
has anyone done better?
I can count, that should be mox4
I had the same number you did, but just found 5 Me's.
18 Ms so far
24 Ms here.
I have the same 24 (well, it might be the same)
A/7/36 meaning needlelike.
6s (in alphabetical order):
ME4/ME5 cat noise/s
ME4/ME5 plateau/s on hill/s
ME4/ME5 blackbird/s (variant spelling)
ME6 solid portion between two crenels in a battlement or crenelated wall
ME5 of, characterized by, or adapted to a moderately moist habitat
that's one more ME there
Bet you're missing the last one
Actually, i haven't entered the words in so maybe babble will reject it.
But i doubt it.
See, I'm not playing today.
*Glances at lists of words on paper:
25x M , 33xR, 25x H, ...
So tempting to login and start entering the words ...
Nope. Not playing today.
No, silly me - I had forgotten to enter the plateau plural. (rolls eyes) The wet word is accepted. :)
And hey - I thought the point of not playing was to save time. If you're going to spend the time babbling, why not get credit for it? ;)
Well the plateau word is my number 9 M word.
And the plural form only made it on my list in the no. 18 position.
Just found the last M word. It's an MA word. The one I found is southern for "master" but not defined at dic.com.
It's those last few niggly words that take so much time.
Maybe i'll be tempted to enter them all tomorrow.
< Looks at clock to discover it IS tomorrow! >
1am ... ooops ... when did that happen?
This Clayton's Babbling isn't working out too well for me ;)
jlm, I can offer you a 6/30 at the start of your list, a 27 between the 30 and the 33, and an additional 21 after that 33.
Thanks fnurt. I'm sure those will be helpful. :)
I found yet another 6/30 before the start of the list.
carmen, 2 c's (4/5) and 2 f's (2x4) so far. The C's are fishy.
Thanks everyone I finally have the ones I wanted!!!
I am missing one lousy H. So far I have Ha4x5, Ha5x6, Ha6x2, Ho4x8, Ho5x3, Ho6x2.
i have 13 x HA, 14 xHO
you are missing an HO x 5
Oh, thanks for posting that! I was also missing just one H an HOx4. :)
Missing a Ha5 and it's driving me nuts! Positive I tried every possible combination... but still 12! Must have missed one...
Of the 6 5-letter HA words:
4 are just adding an S to the end of a 4
1 adds a D to the end of a 4
The other can have an S added to it to make a 6
can anyone give a clue for the 8s please
The were clued at 8:08 and 8:26. I think all of the 7s have also been clued.
OK, I'm still missing the first 2 30s, and 3 of the 6s have not been listed anywhere yet, but I found another so here is an updated list:
jlm_mi, thx! It was the +d hint that helped me out. Thought I had that one for some time, but didn't...
One 6/30 is of a 4/5/6 combo (4/8 and 5/18) and can be found using a piece of wood. ;-)
cant get the microwave clue
The first two 6/30s are anagrams of each other :)
jlm, one of your unlisted sixes is a 24-pointer, one of the fishy words. For me, it is right after the second-to-last 21, but it also might be after that 30.
I just found the fishy 24, and it is after the 21 and before the 30 (which I also just found, nice work jlm!)
Yeah, I could not believe that 6/30 was accepted! I tried it's 5 letter form just on a whim and voila!. :)
I am still one 7 short. Don't think it has been clued yet.
I have an A7, D7, R7 and S7. Has anyone a clue for the 5th?
Thanks for the clues! I thought I had already tried the 6/30 that goes with the 4 and 5, but I guess not. :) And it's anagram! Should have seen that earlier >:-|
Not sure I would have found the fish one either, though it's certainly a popular fish!
I don't think the other 7 has been clued yet either. But, given the letters that I've found all of and it's not in them, I'd say it has to start with one of these:
E, R, S, W
Can anyone eliminate any of those?
Can you give a clue for the R8 please
R8: what it needed after cooling down.
Thank you sprite
Found a 6/27. Is there really a 6/37 between the 30 and 33 or could that be a 27?
Sorry, typo. Can't make a 6/37, but that's definitely a 6/27.
The 7 is not a W, I have all of those. We are still missing an 8 right? Probably a 7/8 combo in that case.
We have the 8's. R8 and D8, and the D is indeed of a 7/8 combo. See 8.08 am
already have the two eights sundew and the r word
I would like to say I couldn't be arsed that it doesn't accept my most interesting word but I could!
The seven is not an E, either.
My bad. I guess I have both 8's as well.
I have only 4 E's.
5-5-6-4. Could you please give me some clue, parsec?
Do all of the E words start with ER? I have 2x4, 3x5, 1x6
4,5,5,6,4,5 for my Es, in order.
You are missing a 4 at the beginning, a 5 at the end, and one more I don't have either. All of my E's start with Er.
Embarrassed about the 4 and the 5... how blind can I be? Thanks!
one E is not an ER. It's a wierdo word with no definition, but you can find it by typing in 4-letter combos that really, really shouldn't be plural words.
The middle two letters of that 7th E word are pretty much how I reacted when I found it.
LOL fnurt! Got it. :)
Oh, and you didn't answer earlier. Was it the J word you got slapped for? ;)
OK, I need 1 more W, along with 2 S words and 6 R words. Since it feels so good to finish off letters, I'll list Ws to swap with people. :)
8x4, 4x5, 1x6
Or the A-word? ;-)
10 Wa, 4 Wo
You need another w5.
The J words is way worse than the A word, I think. It's just a gross word. Makes me shudder.
Oh, and thanks! A Wa5 is what I'll search for. :)
Still sparring with the last E... So it is a 5, ending in a S? Or am I just being very stupid?
Rrrrrr matey! I have Rax6, Rex12, Rox11, hunting for 4 more.
and I m stil trying to find that last WA!!!
sprite - it's a 4 ending in S. And it's a stupid word.
And sorry fnurt, I have only 28 Rs, the same counts as you except I'm missing an RA.
theres at least 1 rh
steve - try adding a d to the end of one of your 4s. At least that's the one that took me the longest to find.
All Wa5's are 4/5 combo's. Only one gets a d. The others an s.
tks jlm that was just it
I keep wanting to make slalom!
Yes, I have a Rh 4. No other with Rh so far.
ive tried salome a million times
yeah, that too
alright, mateys--going with the pirate theme here--I have no help for you as far as R totals, but I can say that there is a 6/7 combo in the REs: bohemian dance(s). The 7 is 44 pts.
Parsec, you found the missing 7! Thx!
OK, those are odd words. But, they bring me soooo close to finishing.
I am now missing one R and one S, and one 5 and one 6.
For Rs I have 15x4, 9x5, 5x6, 2x7, 1x8
For Ss I have 13x4, 12x5, 5x6, 1x7
wait a sec, i have 15xRE now, is that your missing one?
Yes, it appears it is. I only have 14.
I'd go play with plurals, that's what got me.
Yep, that was it. Or rather, adding and S to change verb form. I saw the verb as a past tense form, but it can also be present tense with a totally different meaning. So, that makes the complete list of 6-letter words:
