There are at least 2x 8/50
8 for 65
7 for 28 and 7 for 36
2x7 for 36
7 for 48...that's nice, but that 8 for 65 is nicer. i know there are far more words in here than i can even begin to see.
Incredible - I see the words faster than I can enter them. ;-)
another 8 for 65
Can't decide if I want to jump in to this one...
276 words, 26 sevens and 10 eight+
How do you know? Do you have the stats? How does anyone GET those stats, anyway?
another 7 for 28 and 48. oh, why not, it'll be fun. the water's warm.
By word length:
4 .... 115
5 ..... 82
6 ..... 45
7 ..... 26
8 ..... 10
By start letter:
A .... 20
B .... 39
E .... 12
F .... 35
H .... 14
i .... 10
L .... 32
M .... 18
N .... 7
O .... 7
P .... 23
R .... 22
S .... 17
T .... 15
W .... 7
Wish i had time to play today.
Have fun :)
Sprite - there's at least one online solver out there - people have various methods for getting stats about the words without actually looking at the words in the list.
They must have an almost superhumane selfcontrol! *S*
I really like to play when there are stats, btw - nice to know what I'm aiming for. Thanks!
And an 8/75!
Anybody fancy sharing? I currently have 10 of the 15 T's:
Ta4 x 1
Ta6 x 1
Te4 x 3
Te5 x 1
Ti4 x 3
Ti5 x 1
Any thoughts on what's missing??
There's another Ti5
Thanks Sprite :O)
How are you doing with the 8's? I have 5 now.
Not good! Only 3 so far, but I haven't been boggling for long...A, F and P...
F, H, P, P, S so far. I'll go looking for the A!
Righto, S and P for me...
The full T list is:
Ta4 x 1
Ta6 x 1
Te4 x 5
Te5 x 3
Ti4 x 3
Ti5 x 2
I have A8 I'm looking for the S
S8 how you should behave
Any clue for the A8? I keep seeing that A7...
The A-8-50 is the plural of an A-7-36.
I've just found an R8 for 40, meaning most turbulent.
The A7/36 I have has no plural... :-(
I have two Ai7 x 36 words which could explain the problem. I'm guessing you have the one that means perhaps...if so you need to look for another Ai7 x 36 and then stick an s on the end of it. A clue is it is a disorder.
I have a whole world to explore there, I see... I have an Am7/36.
I am ashamed... so very blind for the obvious! Thanks, found it.
Ha! Well, thanks for the clue, I had quite a few similar looking words, but not that one..
O7 for 28
and an E for 36.
There are 3 E7's for 36.
Thinking out loud about 8s, I believe the chat has so far mentioned:
A, F, H, P, P, R, S
So that still leaves 3 unaccounted for so far...
Now painfully aware that I am talking to myself ... there are at least three f8s in total (55,65,65). Which means there is now only one 8 unaccounted for...
Hey Kirsty - You are not alone here! :) I can't help with the 8s, and maybe not with the 7s either, but I'll list the 7s that I have because I know that not all of them have been mentioned.
And a 4th 7-48 F.
And a 3rd 7-36 P
Great stuff! I can add an F7x40, another 2 P7x36, and another R7x28 - which I reckon gets us up to 25 - only one more to find!
...and I wrote that before I'd seen your last post, so we're still looking for one more...
So you have 4/7-36 P at this point, right?
Yep 4 P7x36 :o)
I've just found the final 8 - it's a P for 75. I'd never heard the word before and is something to do with hair.
Kirsty - If I'm reading the posts right there are also two other 8-letter words beginning with P. Do you have the points for those?
Can almost make 'hermit'...
There is an 8-50 S that I don't think has been mentioned (I now have 2 8-50 S words). The "how you should behave" one was mentioned earlier. The one I just found is a chemical.
OK, another recap of 7s and 8s. I have (I think) all the 8s and all but 1 7:
Wow, the only letter I've found all of is T, thanks to clues earlier. This is a tough puzzle to get the last 25% or so words on! Anyone want to compare various starting letters? I'll start with F and S:
FA4x1,FA6x1, FA7x1, FA8x1
FE4x2, FE5x1, FE6x1
Fi4x4, Fi5x4, Fi6x2, Fi7x2, Fi8x1
FO4x3, FO6x2, FO7x3, FO8x1
SE4x5, SE6x1, SE8x1
ST4x2, ST5x1, ST8x1
I have an SE5 and an ST5 you are missing.
PA4x2, PA5x1, PA6x4, PA7x3, PA8x1
PI4x5, PI5x2, PI8x1
There is at least one more FO4.
I have PA5x2, and PA7x4
OK, how about some that we might be able to find all of more easily. :)
N: all I have are NE - 4x4 and 1x5
O: Oi5, Oi6, Oi7, OM4, OM5
W - Wi4x2, Wi5x2, Wi7, WR5
ah, missed me some plurals. Also there are two more SE5s (for a total of three) that build in various ways off of a four.
There is at least one more NE4 and a WE4.
WE4x1. Should be familiar.
I have an OR5.
I now have two Or5
iL4,iN4, iN5x2, iN6x2
I'm still on the Ps: I found a third Pi5
jlm, are there really, truly, 2 ST4's? :)
I just got a third Inx5
oops...I mean a third inx6!! :-)
fnurt - no, I apparently have ST4x1 and ST5x3. Sorry! :)
I found an imx5
any clues on that P/8/75?
The dictionary def is:
Having the form of a hair
It sounds kind of like something you'd use to form a small cushion (use some imagination here) ;-)
cjustine - that's the one that has to do with hair that Kirsty1 mentioned earlier.
It's a compound word formed from two 4-letter words that, of course, are both in this puzzle.
Boo - did you find the iM6 that goes with your iM5 (assuming it's the same one I have)? And cute clue for the P8-75. :-D
yes, my two im words go together.
and now I'm only one short.
il4, im5, im6, in4, in5x2, in6x3
Does that match what you have right now?
Unfortunately, yep, it's the same. Will keep searching for that elusive last i word. :)
got that P/8/75, thanks guys! :D
GOT IT! in6!!! (for a total of in6x4)
Now to catch up on another letter...
I was just going to post the same thing!
I'm going to keep moving on to other letters even though we haven't completed the ones I posted earlier. We may never get some of them done! :)
E: EL6, EL7, EM4, EN5, EN6x2, EN7
H: HE4x6, HE5x2, HE8, Hi4x2
I think they should give us more than 24 hours on puzzles like this :-)
It might help, but sometimes it just feels better to start with something fresh the next day. :)
I'm way behind on Es, but I got El5x2 and El6x2 (both are pairs)
Just to clarify, those are EL not Ei, is that right?
Yes, they must be. Just found one of the pairs. :)
jlm - I have just returned (having rescued a field mice from the grip of my cat, but that, as they say is another story) to see that I did indeed misinform you earlier - sincere apologies. At least I can see it didn't affect your 8 seeking cause too badly! I haven't read all the posts I've missed yet but I'm getting there with 26 left to find...
OK, a bunch more:
BE4x6, BE5x4, BE6x3, BE7, Bi4x2, Bi5x2, Bi6, BL4x4, BL5x3, BL6, BR4
LE4x4, LE5, Li4x12, Li5x5, Li6x2, Li7
ME5, Mi4x5, Mi5x5, MO4, MO5x2
RE5x2, RE6x5, RE7x3, Ri4x2, Ri5, Ri7, RO4x2, RO8
The final tally for S's is:
Se4 x 7
Se5 x 3
Se6 X 1
Se8 x 1
St4 x 1
St5 x 3
St8 x 1
Thanks Kirsty! Getting closer here - 35 to go, but alas, only few more minutes to find them. I probably won't be back on tonight after that.
To add to my lists below, I've found one more Li4, one Bi4 and one Bi5.
I found one Be4 more(total 7) and a total of Bi4x5.
Found an EN5 to complete the Es.
Just for the sake of completeness..the missing 7 from Jlm's list a while back is an R36
Karin - It seems so obvious now that you say that! I was missing the 6/7 combo. Maybe the fact that I'm hungry helped me find it. :)
My bad - I meant Kirsty, not Karin! :-O
Yay - I was able to find another Li4 (so I have 14 total now) to bring me over 4000, and I must go now with 252/4002. Have fun babbling, all! :)
anyone have the A list? my A's are painfully sparse
so far I have Ai7x1 and Ai8x1... any help?
Ai7 x 2
Am4 x 4
Am6 x 2
thanks, sprite! :D
Questions to all...out of all the P words, do any of them begin with Ph? I currently do not have any P words to speak of.
There are clues from about 2:20 about the p words. Only one starts with ph
i haven't found any Ph yet
Take it back, apparently I am totally blind to the fact that I have5 P words, the fifth one of which I just found that begins with a Ph......
Well, that must be the one I just found. Thanks Boo :)
For the P's:
Thanks Sprite :)
I simply cannot find that 3rd F8.
I have an Fa8 and an Fo8. Can someone please tell me what I am missing?
There is an Fi8 that means to rule on a paternity suit. Maybe lawyer-1 could help you with that.
Actually, a Fi7/8 I should say.
I keep wanting to make Hebrew...darn it.
*lol* Me too! About a million times now, I think...
Thanks fnurt, found them!
Could somebody please give me a clue for the R7-36? I have all the other biggies, but this one keeps hiding from me.
Okay, found it myself.
RED SOX WON!
Time to watch the news and go to bed.
Good night all.
Just got up... to work in an hour time. Good night to you!
go Sox! what'd they win by? (I work evenings, obviously :) )
Time's too short - off to work now, with 265 words 5.05 4239 as my final score. Not bad, but wouldn't it have been nice to finish this grid!
Oh no, I've entered only down to the Fa.... no time to enter A-E..... ran out of time.
