Thanks for the atlatl explanation of yesterday! What a wonderful way to start my day - now I can say I have already learned something completely new. :-)
Okay, let's see what we have here today... a nasty one?
There's a 6 for 30
At least found one that uses the J.
And a 6 for 33!
Anyone else who has tried to make aorta about a dozen times?
This one has at least 5 6-letter words. I have 3 now, and I haven't found yet Atalante's 30 or mulhermujer's 24.
Mine are 21, 27, 33.
I've got 5 - 30,27,27,24,24
Nice! So we have 6 at least, counting my 21.
7 of 6! Another 21.
Make that 8 - found a 6 of 42!
LOL I've just found the same one :P
A 6 for 18
And another 6 for 33
You mean there are 2 of 33?
duh sorry - it's early here! no, only one 33 - I thought I already had one but it must have been your mention of it
Right - 9 so far between the two of us. I am hunting for yours... ;-)
So far I've got for 6s
C - 30, 27
D - 27
J - 42
L - 24
P - 33
T - 21,18,24
C 27, 24
And there is an E of 18.
Got your C 24 now :)
ooooooooh a 7 for 40!
I have an A 8/45
You are way beyond me - can't catch up with you yet!
We have... 12 so far, right?
There is a 7/36 as well.
A new list of the 6's so far:
C 30 27 24 24
T 21 18 24
Plus 2x 7/36
(need to find those 2 last words yet)
This is bitter... ;-)
There are 2 5-words that together would form such a beautiful color... but they do not link... almost though!
And a 7/44
I have five 7`s:
c`s 7/36 , 7/36 , 7/44
Great! Where does the 8 start with?
My highest's 6/42. Haven't found any 7s yet
Just found another 6/33, an H.
Anyone a clue for the 8?
Ashy & Sini

I have an A 8/45
Sorry! You are right - did not see the A before the 8/45. The hunt goes on...
No one with stats yet...
What I have so far:
83 words for 1171 points.
Can somebody tell me what more to aim for?
Plus another D, E and T.
86 / 1186.
Can't be all now, can it?
Aren't you missing some Js in there?
I have 25 C words .Does anyone know if there are any more ?
Yes, sorry. 2 J's.
thought so :P
And Karin inspires me to find 3 more C's... ;-)
Karin, I have for C's:
Ce4 x 3
Co4 x 4
Co5 x 5
Co6 x 5
Co7 x 3
Just found a third J word
Your missing a Co /6 and 2x cr /5
Found the 3rd J too...
I now have 10 D words
Can anyone give a clue for the CO7s please
two are related, both refer to upper parts, crowns.
The other CO7 is a plural of a Latin word.
For D's I have:
Do4 x 6
thank you sprite got 2 of them but not the latin one
Think of many books...
Still one D short...
Or think of a Latin term for a body ...
Never mind, found it. Thought I entered that one long ago, but obviously didn't...
Karin, I have now 93 / 1271.
Is yours the same or can we look for more?
How many 8s are there
By word length:
4 ..... 56
5 ..... 25
6 ..... 18
7 ...... 5

D ..... 10
E ..... 3
H ..... 6
J ..... 3
L ..... 3
O ..... 6

Wow, thanks for the stats!
One of the O's is a 6/18.
can't believe how almost not quite there corporate is
I know... :-(
Just like terracotta. And corona.
Ihave an a/5/10. May I please have help finding the other A words?
There is 1 Ae, the rest is At.
The last two are a 6/8 combo.
thanks, sprite, I will keep looking
Nice to wake up and look at the stats and see that I've already got the eight and sixty percent of the sevens!
may I please have a clue for the a/8?
Can't think of a nice clue. It means "To agree to remain as a tenant of property after the transfer of its ownership".
Nevermind, I found the a/8 all by myself before I read any more clues. Yea for me.
You're the greatest! ;-)
Thanks, you made my day :)
64/730, need to take a break. This is not a easy puzzle. But I think I am doing pretty well. Found the 8 letter word and some 7/s.
99/1330 now... and those last few words take far more time than the rest! *lol*
Could someone give a clue for the P7? I'm sure I'm looking straight at it, but I can't see it!
don't worry - found it :)
I'd like a clue for the P7 please
P7: stretched out
Or a little more cryptical: if you spelled it wrong, it would be right. ;-)
Can anyone please help me with the E's and O's? I need one of each.
For E's I have 4/6 and 6/18.
For O's I have 4/7, 5/14, 4/6, 6/18 and 4/4.
What am I missing?
I have an E5/12.
There is an O 5/10.
Can someone help me with the E6?
Thanks for the help, found the E and O. Now only one R and one T more... Anyone who has them all yet?
Are all the C6s CO???
Yes, all of them. :-)
I have 1xRa4, 3xRe4, 3xRe5, 3xRo4, 1xRo6, still missing 1.
You're missing an RE7
I am still looking for an R4 or R5.
I have these R4's:
4/4, 4/6, 4/5, 4/4, 4/4, 4/5, 4/4.
For R5's I have: 2x 5/14.
Could someone please tell me what I am missing?
Never mind, fnurt's list gave me the answer: I need another Re5.
I've got ...
TA4 x2 TA5 x2 TA6 x1
TE4 x1 TE5 x3 TE6 x1
TO4 x4 TO6 x1
You need another Th4 and another To4.
And the one that I am missing too...
LOL - a mystery T - how mysterious!
Its a TW 4
1 P to go! Woohoo!
YES! You did it... now I have them all!
105 words 4.76 1381
Nice grid today! And really fun with you all.
It'll be a really nice grid when I've found this stupid P LOL
OMG that was ridiculous, I'd written down the word ages ago and not noticed *sigh*
Anyway - FINISHED!
*lol* So you were better than you knew... congratulations!
I need help with the H's please. I have h/4/7 x 2 and h/5/16. What am Imissing?
I have an h4/9.
Just found an h/6 33!
Do all of the H words start with HE? The four I have do.
runningforhome, I can't seem to find your h/4/9. But will keep looking:)
I've found all the h words except the 6. there are 4 HE4 and 1 HE5
I am missing one HE/4 and can't seem to find it :(
of the two that are "odd", one is an obsolete term meaning "to seize", the other is a variant spelling of a bird.
Ihave an o/5/14.
:) Thank you Periwinkle
Krys10, you are welcome. Do you have the h/6/33
I need help with the O's please. I have one o/4/7, one o/5/14 and one o/4/6. What am I missing?
yes got it thanks. working on vowels now
if the clues from earlier are right, you are missing a 6/18, a 4/4, and a 5/10.
I simply cannot find the last P word with 7 letters. May I have another clue please. Can't get it from the clue that is posted.

My pleasure. Just wait, that bit of trivia will come up, and you will totally impress someone with your vast knowledge of atlatl's. ;)
Does the r-7 use the r in the last row, or the other one?
(Sigh,) I started this because I thought it only had a few words and I am too busy to do much babbling for a few weeks.
But there are too many again, and I have only found a few so far. It's a horrible puzzle, the most difficult for weeks. Have to give up this weekend! :-(
i only have 47/621, dimwit. so thought on a day without classes it'd be easier.
maybe next wkend we'll have better luck.
Question about the A 8 for 45. does the word start with a prefix meaning one quintillionth ? If so, then I have half of the word, if not...bummer. Anyone?
It's not a word I knew before, but it reminds me of a word for lawyer. feeling too lazy to look up the quintillionth thing!
i don't know what that word is, but if you think legal professions...
I'm stuck on the last two P words - can anyone help me figure out what I'm missing?
1xPL (a 4), 5xPO (three 4's, a 5, and a 7), 3xPR (two 4's and a 5)
phew! done! this one was not as gratifying for me as yesterday's...
Can I get the values of those last two p-words, Krys10? I have the same ones you had before.
they're great words - a related 5 and 6, British term meaning pimp....
hey all British babblers, isn't todd a word? why won't it go in?
I'm missing 4 D-words. Are there any that are more than four letters?
I have one d/5/16
Ah yes, I just found that one.
there's also a D6.. in all, 3 DE's and 7 DO's.
May I please have a hint for the d/7?
Here's a breakdown of the larger words:
Ignore, my last request. I know there is no d/7 :)
67/827. I will now say tata even though Babble Gods say it isn't a word. And here I was so good. Fasted and went to temple all day, and only got a measly score :(
Been a while and I really don't have the time to babble, but I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed my time spent here on this board this past summer. Now that school is in I just can't stay up all night to babble, not that I don't want to. I also would like to say that I am glad to have made many of your virtual acquaintances and that Lawyer-1 in particular remains one of the finest people I have met in any online forum.
I haven't played in a month and after one minute of looking at the grid I am transfixed with it's magic. I will leave now to return perhaps when I have a week to play. This game may be the best time waster ever.
