and a 7/36
another 8 and a 9
Morning, Onyx! Much nicer grid, this. I'll go look for that 8/50...
hey sprite, start with an s 4 and make a superlative, got an a 8 for 45,
Thanks, got the 50. But am hunting now for that 9!
want a hint?
May I take a rain check? I am still in the love-to-hunt mode. But thanks!
oh come on, dudette isn't acceptable?
antidate neither... not fair!
You think someone tries to tell us something by repeating that A6/30??
i should be asleep, but here i am playing this game, i am.......
Ashy & Sini
I wasn't going to play today, but to be able to get 2 Q's straight away broke my determination...
how many of us have said that very thing?
Quite a few, I fear... Must work today, but am playing again...
Got two 9's now: 60 and 72.
how many 8's?
The 4th 8 is a combo with a 9.
And a 10/91. Means to wink.
Combo with a 9/66.
recap so far:
5x 8 (50, 45, 60, 40, 50)
3x 9 (66, 72, 60)
Another 8/55, comes right after the first for 50.
And yet another 8/55, also after the first 50.
Stuck at 178 for 2808.
Haven't been able to find a new word for some time now - I'll come back later to see if somebody has been so kind to do the stats!
can't believe the first word I found was a 9/72. that's very unusual for me
Thanks, parsec! So I need another 7 words... the hunt goes on!
I give up.
184 words 5.13 2893 points
and I need another Q-word.
I really tried everything I could think of, even checked my dictionary. Can anyone give me a clue, please?
My Q's go 9-8-30-18.
you know, looking back at the solver, it might use different Q rules than Babble does. If you have everything but some Q stuff, maybe 184 is all there is.
The solver gives "qaid" as one of the words in the solution, and that's not acceptable by babble rules. So, 184 words with 4 Qs and 77 4-letter words would be the right stats. Congrats on finding them all sprite! :)
Here I sit, feeling bad about this elusive Q-word, just to hear it isn't there! I counted: 77x4. Thanks for solving the mystery for me... should earn you extra points!
What is the starting letter for the 9/10 combo?
Thanks! Add that to my list of "words I know without knowing how I know them"...
I have S9/60 and N9/66 could I have clue for the other one please
;-) is definitely a shorter way of putting it.
That was in answer to fnurt's message...
The 3rd 9 is an R/72, meaning 'righteousness'.
thanks for the clue sprite
My 8s so far are A50, A55, A55, A45, R60, S40, S50 (that's all of them)
My 7s so far are A36, A36, A40, C36, D40, R28, R28, S32, S40 (still working)
I can fill in some blanks for you on 7s. I have a 7/32/D (don't know where it is related to your D40 because I don't have that one). I also have a 7/32/i and a third 7/28/R.
could you give some clues for 8s please
I can list the 7's and 8's for you:
D40 (not related to D32)
S40 (combo with 9/60)
Thanks. Just missing A/55 and A/50
A8/55 and A8/50 that is
A7/36 and A8/50 are a combo, words for (a) sea anemone(s) or related animal(s).
The A8/55 is a chemical word, but in form it is related to the other two. Just takes another ending.
Great clues, thanks sprite
I have the R9 and the S9. What does the third 9 start with please?
Nevermind, I reread the log and know that it start with an N.
May I have a clue for the N9/10 combo. Did I miss it in the log?
stevedallas, thanks, but your clue is not helping me :(. I will keep trying though.
wink is the defintion for n9/10
I know but I just can't find them. Is there another clue?
think of the addictive element of tobacco smoke
Thanks, I will keep trying. I WILL find the N 9/10 combo.
all 10 letters are in the right three columns
stevedallas, I found the N9/10. Thanks so much for your help.
stevedallas, can I help you with anything.
have any clues for the r8?
No, sorry I am looking for that one now.
Would someone please post a clue for the R8?
R8: made it moist again
how about the a7 for 40?
The r8 is the past tense of an invalid 3 letter word, again. I hope that helps!
How about the s9?
S9 is the past tense of an S8.
Thank you sprite.. :)
I can't believe that's a word. thanks!
you are welcome, glad to help
I always try to add and ed or an s to any word. You just never know what babble will accept.
The A7/40 is a bit curious to me. It would be someone doing the A5/16. A patient person, anyway.
sprite, since I do not have the A5/16 would you be kind enough to give me a clue.
Breaktime, back later.
Hard to give a clue without giving the word...
A5/16: to be in store for
Or maybe: to pass time while expecting smth/smone.
tks sprite i had the 16 for a while just didnt think to make it a noun
have you really been at this since this morning( late last night for me) i actually fell asleep, went to work and all that.
I have done quite a lot of other things, actually. Am correcting a text right now, and in between I open the babble window to see if someone needs clues... gives me such a nice excuse to take a break every once in a while.
sprite, thanks. your clue was excellent. I got the A15 and the A40. What a odd word the A40 is.
omg!!! just found a 9 for 72. sure everyone else has already, but have only been on for 20 min. or so. how very nice. :)
4t8 - I'm just restarting for the night, I'd love a clue. :-)
never mind, I think I just found it!
I am looking for some T's...
I *hate* As!!!! Somehow I became fixated on them tonight and can't go on . . . I have 23 of them . . . any definition hints for the biggies I'm missing?
I have 3x8 -- the sea anemone, the chemical series and the feelings or state of mind
I have 2x7 -- sea anemone & patient one
You are missing a 7/8 that means to put into motion.
the chemical series? Is there another besides the A/8/55?
Still looking for a hand with those T's!!! (see below)
no -- just as the lanthanide series are those on the periodic chart #s 57-71, the A8 is the name for those 89-103; I was referring to that series rather than a babble series.
I was a chemist before I 'retired' to be a SAHM ;-)
Is there a hint for the S8?
which one?? there's an 8/9 combo that means to clean and an 8 that means less abundant
how many words were in this puzzle?
it only took me all day but i think i got them all!!!!! a first.
Thanks, fixit! I was working on that cleaning one, but I hadn't tried the right combos.
