PS - I'm curious to know where everyone's from - mention it if you post today? I'm in San Francisco.
Well there may only be 1 7, but its a very nice word :)
...but it's not monster, ostrich, or harmonica :(
argh, now I'm going to see monster everywhere :P
and monarch, while you're at it!
this is a weird board, with so many duplicates in the lower left and upper right corners..
I'm not sure where all these 6s are hiding out .... am beginning to feel most of them don't exist :P
I feel the same way.. I have six of them so far. Mostly I'm missing 5's tho.
mosh is SO a word.
ps. australian in japan.
This is a horrible grid. (Scotland)
Atalante, is the seven a common word?
Its not common, but its not a word you'll have never ever heard of. And its a plural of one of the 6s
I thought the seven was a french word - typed it as a desperation thingy!
way past bedtime........
61 words for 630. I'm in
That was anticlimactic - I just found the seven by accident. Turns out it wasn't a word I knew... guess I'm not enough of a nut fan!
Good Morning All.
Just getting started.
It's 7:20am here in Massachusetts.
Usually I'm getting ready to leave but waiting for the heater repair man to come between 8 and 12 for our annual pre-winter checkup.
It sounds like this might be one of those difficult grids. A challenge is just what I need to wake up.

Hi Krys10 its just about 2.10pm here in London England. The weather is yuck its been raining.
Hi Krys, and thands for posting the list. I am sitting here in good ole Noo Joisey. I've been to San Francisco a number of times. Nice city :)
Here I am in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I've got all the 6s and the 7 and am only missing 3xM, 1xR and 2xS. Here's my list of long words:
6-39 S (This word and the next are part of a series of words
6-39 S the shortest of which was a funny S word in a puzzle
6-27 S a few days ago.)
a song by Mel Torme sung in Seville
and in Southeast Virginia
OK, down to missing 1xM, 1xR and 2xS. Can anyone compare?
Only rain here in Holland - think I'll join you for a round of babble. The grid looks worthwhile. Haven't got much time to play tonight, though.
jlm. Michigan alumna here. Go Blue!!!!!!!!!1 My cell phone plays Hail to the Victors when it rings. Thanks for the list of letters I shall compare
fit1 - I moved here to go to U of M, left with my husband for 5 years (to Connecticut), moved back 3 years ago, and don't ever plan to move away again! Go Blue! :-D
Ann Arbor? Are you at / working at the University there???
There's another RO4
ahhh poor UM folks; of course Im Badger
You have my sympathy, Stevedallas :)
Theres one more MO5
steve - too bad we don't play each other in football this year! :)
Atalante - I'm not at the Universtiy now. Got my BSE in Aerospace Engineering there in 1996. Just living there now and enjoying the wonderful universtiy town atmosphere!
There is also one more SO4. Still haven't found the MO5, but that leaves the other S to be 5 letters.
Duh - The remaining S is plural of the 4 I was missing, so there is also another SO5.
mothra = type of japanese monster
Are there really MO5x8????? I'm so stumped on this one. I have 5 of them worth 14 points and 2 worth 20 if anyone can tell me the point value of the one I'm missing.
Goodmorning, all. (and Marianne) I've just signed on for today. found 64/675, before I quit to do some sewing... I have the seven and five 6s, and now I need to find the rest.
It's cooling down in Los Angeles - we expect about 78 today.
Why doesn't it like MOSH or CARHORNS? Two pefectly good words....
jlm - there must be a mistake somewhere, I've just got the final M, so have the 25 listed in the stats - and I have 7 Mo5's, 5 for 14 and 2 for 20.
That's good to know! I am missing an M5, just don't know which. I guess most likely an MA, so I'll look there. Here's what I have:
MA4x2, MA5, MA6, MA7
MO4x10, MO5x7, MO6
Who knew that was a word??? **shrug**
you know I have had oscars in an aquarium
didnt use my rake so used ******
i had a better one but I didnt use it
had something to do with a cadillac
I am also a Michigan (and Michigan State) alum. Small world.
So, fnurt, if you're a football fan, who will you be rooting for on 10/30. Bummer for me I can't go to the game! We have my in-laws' season tickets, with the understanding that father-in-law gets to go the UM vs. MSU game because he's an MSU alum.
And great clues, steve! Though I think I would have liked the Cadillac one better, LOL!
I was an undergrad at MSU, so I am eternally loyal (and perpetually disappointed)
Here in Chicago it is a cool, sunny yet hazy day.
I have 80 words so far.
Anchor isn't there...
I nearly had to do my PhD viva at U Mich ... but I didn't in the end - sorry that's going back to convos from hours before
Hi everyone, I'm a newish member from Scotland, wish I had more time as this game is really addictive! It is wet and coolish here!
*yawn* I slept in this morning, so you are all way ahead of me. Thanks for all the waves from around the world, and a special one to Minski for having faith in the Sox just like this displaced New Englander.
jlm - just checking I culled the clues correctly - are there three SO5's?
Krys -- there are 3 SO5's
missing 2 M's and an R
Just starting to play today...
Most of the family plays this game from Rochester, NY, but one of us lives in Buffalo (thus the "Boo West/Boo East" conversations)
(we also go by Berekah and Benjake, depending on which way the wind blows)
It's cool to see where people are from!
Hi all. I'm in Phoenix, AZ, US, the source of all heat. I am soooo addicted to this game. My friend, Tolinya, got me started. And I got my mom (in Colorado) and my uncle (San Fransisco) to play as well. TTFN.
I've obviously got way too much time on my hands... I was looking through the chat logs for games from a year ago. No one even used the chat log in the beginning! There was talk about a limit/penalty on random guesses (no noodling!). And people weren't nearly as nice to each other.
Steve, I'm also missing two M's and an R, but I know what I'm looking for - what have you got?
I'm missing 2 6s/39 and 6/24
The two 39's differ by one letter. It's a slang term, Joe's last name.
You're dead right Kris10. I played when the game was starting up. People were doing a lot of bitching and getting wound up about their scores/ people cheating etc.
Its much nicer now there is a community spirit about the game. Give yourselves a pat on the back!
I'm fae Glasgow in perpetually rainy Scotland.
It "beeped" my word!!!!
Harsh! no wonder people play nice now :)
i think im missing an r4 and an mo5
We can help each other, then. My Mo5's go: 14, 20, 14, 14, 14, 14, 20. I have 4 RO, 1 RH, and 1 RE. I'm missing an MA5 and an RO5.
its actually an ro5 and an mo5
look at my 10:39 clue for your MA5
Your clues are so cryptic! But I think I already have *that* MA5.
then how about the chain of grocery stores in the midwest
I like the game, but I like the chat log just as much. It's having fun together. Thanks for telling us about how things were in the beginning!
Ah! Steve! I got it the MA. the clue worked on me all at once.
Thanks for the clues but I still can't get them. Manchester England
im missing a MO5 for 14 which makes the RO5 worhth 20
ok got the RO now for the MO5 for 14
all my MO5's (14's) are plurals/verb tenses ending in s. i gotta go, will look for the RO5/20 while I'm gone!
110 words 4.56 1273
Wasn't so hard as it looked.
There is one Mo5 that is no plural or verb form. You use it for measuring time.
Which you knew... sorry, didn't read all the posts.
All Mo5 14's end in the same letter, except one.
finished thanks for the clues "On Wisconsin, Break right through that line, carry the ball boys down the field, touchdown every time!"
bigbirdboss...I am also in SE TX...Houston area! :)
I'm missing an O, I have an OA, an ON, and an OR...any hints?

i need help
well, i cant find anything to go with the letter that has the 8, i cant seem to think of anything, and so far i'm doin fairly well
I do not understand your question. There is no 8-word in this grid. What kind of help do you need?
I mean the J, if u understand?
Starting late today...I'm in Maryland.
Oh yes, now I understand. Don't bother, it isn't used. :-(
alright, i'll try my best then, thank u
Indiana here, strange puzzle with oddly spaced vowels. Thanks for all the help.
doing better than i was yesturday
I'm counting the MO5s someone posted. There are only 7????? I've been busting my keyboard trying to find the 8th? Yikes. So, are there 7 or 8 MO 5
There's only seven.
I am missing an O word. I have an oa, or and an on. All 4 letters. What am I missing?
another or4 word
I have one of the two N words, but can't figure out where to look for the other. Mine is a No4.
I'm missing one R. I've got:
RO 4x4 5x1
Can anyone tell me what I'm missing???
I haven't gotten quite that far yet, but earlier chat says there are two Rox5.
Both are NO4s :)
Thanks. Sometimes that's all I need to keep noodling :-)
Atalante, I have 2 RO X 5
I am missing an M. I have ma4x2, ma5, ma6, ma7, mh4, mo4x10, mo5x7, mo6
What am I missing?
thanks, Boo, got the last O word.
marigold, do you have the m/7. I do.
I just *cannot* find this other RO5 LOL
You're missing an MA5 fit1 :)
Hey Atalante. Denks. I found the MA. :)
Can someone give me a really obvious clue for the RO5 that isn't the sound a lion makes ...
Atalante, you're probably looking at the wrong R. Use the bottom left one.
Thanks rfh! A few minutes of noodling later ... and a new word for my babble vocabulary!
Stef, (fae Glasgow in perpetually rainy Scotland) - a slight exaggeration - but then the sun shines on the righteous:) It's dry here, just a few miles from you!
Are there 29 or 30 S-words? Krys10's list says thirty, but when jlm_mi posted looking for the last ones, his total was only 29, and that's all I can find.
P.S. Canadian living in Omaha, Nebraska.
Never mind, I'm blind - it was a plural of a word I already had.
Done at 110/4.56/1273
My first time back for weeks. Bad timing! Frustrated in Perth, Western Australia.
I need help with the T words. I have 2 TH and 2 TO. What am I missing?
marigold, are you here?
periwinkle, there are two more TH words.
thanks, I will keep looking
Thanks guys. I finally found the 3 Ts I was missing.

What is the total word count for this puzzle?

Yay! I found all 110! :)
I'm at 77/901.
I guess I have more work to do.
I'm working on the S's.

I'm still missing one MO/5

What am I missing?
time to wake up hubby and make him go to bed (he fell asleep on the couch during the debate).
Hi all...just a quick check in see how many words I can post while logging into Everquest (Yes I'm addicted can I sit down now?)
I'm from Phx, AZ as well as Mulher..she's the babysitter for my little boy. Got 2 friends from work hooked on this..but they don't chat. Just play.
'Mosh' is so a word!! Has this dictionary never been to a Pearl Jam concert?!?
you don't say eh??
not fond of this puzzle...
23 and 230
not too mention that e is in the wrong spot
I have found no N or O words.
Good lord. The N word I just found is: "A severe, often gangrenous inflammation of the mouth or genitals, occurring usually after an infectious disease and found most often in children in poor hygienic or malnourished condition."
I'm gonna try really hard to never have that happen.
that sounds just lovely
Hey! Lothar of the Hill People is in this puzzle. SNL reference...
