what are the start letters for the 8's that have been found so far?
Thanks for the stats, shortseer!
thanks for the 8's info
i'd just started playing earlier on when i was driven offline by a storm.
Now i'm back ... so many words ... so little time. Eeek
I so much want to make heretic...
Hah! i'm obsessed with "sentence"
A very curious Th5/18 I found by mistyping! Old English for a freeman.
P7/P8 sequence ... whisky (espec. illicitly distilled whisky) (sing./plural)
P6/P8 sequence ... a state of nervous activity, a fuss / to make confused, troubled, worried.
Got 'm, thanks. Only one more 8 now.
G5/G7/G8 sequence ... colour / the state or quality of being that colour (sing./plural)
Never knew you could do that with a colour... *lol*
Thanks, shortseer. I only had the 5.
138/2151 now and it is getting harder.
and i've only just realised that there's a G6 in that sequence too
... lol got the hard ones then spent ages looking for that last G
i know what you mean. I often forget plurals or verb forms...

Finished with 192 words / 4.97 / 2911
I cant find the G/7 or G/8
if you've found a colour, then just go to greater lenghths and you'll find them ;)
... length is an interesting word, isn't it?
2nd C8 should read D8, I think?
Thanks for the clues, shortseer.
yes D8, not C8
sorry about that!
goforit = shortseer?
yeah .. the theory is if i'm logged in as goforit, i can just play on paper,and i can read the log, maybe enter a few words to check if they're valid, but NOT obsessively sit playing babble of hours on end until i find every single word.
192 words 4.97 2911 points as well, so that must be it.
Thanks for the help on the T's in your list, shortseer, that's what did it for me.
Great idea! And does it help? Or does it only make you play twice? ;-)
I mean R's... sorry!
mmm, looks like a fun one today. bummer i'm working from now until the puzzle closes :(
I can't find the e/7/44 or the r/7/28 having to do with crystalline compounds.
hey folks anyone to scoring above 267?
Cant find the E/8 44 or E/8 60 been looking for a while
Treble99, I can't find them either.
The latter part of the e/8/60 is a t/6/30. Then remove one letter and you've got the e/7/44.
runningforhome, thanks I will try that.
thanks, got the e/7/44.
May I have a clue for the e/8/60 please? How many 8 letter words are there today?
I know there is a clue for the e/8/60 but I cannot find it. Is there another clue (which is what I meant in the previous post).
Putting an 'R' somewhere in your e/7/44 will give you the e/8.
thanks so much, got it.
Cant get the crystalline compound R/728
For the R7/28 take one of your Re4/4's and try to lengthen it to an R6/18. Then make it a plural.
I only have 2 RE4s both 4/4
I have two Re4's. Can;t seem to lengthen them. How many Re4's are there.
Yea, I got it. I finally used the right Re/4.
C8 55 ... not in the middle!
really a D8-55?
D8/55 is actually a word. place a prefix in front of a c6/24.
That's not what I meant.. I have a D8-55 meaning "not in the middle", so I was wondering if the C8-55 clue from 8:01 was supposed to read D8-55...
Soooo.. there is also an C8-55 meaning "not in the middle"? Thanks (in advance) for the clarification.
There is a c/8/55 also meaning in the middle. Do you have that one.
The d/8/55 is the only word that means "not in the middle".
LOL this is getting silly!
I have a C8-55 meaning "in the middle"
I have a D8-55 meaning "not in the middle"
I would like to know whether there is a C8-55 meaning "not in the middle.
god, i still have 55 words to go....why must thou torment me, Babble?!
Still need 13 Ts. Have 7-Te [4,5,4,4,5,6,5]; 5-Th [4,5,4,5,5]; 11-To [4,5,6,4,4,5,5,4,4,4,5]; 3-Tr [5,6,6]; and one Ty4. Anyone have hints? Thank you much. Oh, and I still need three Es, and one each of C, O, P. 10 to go.
Oops, typo: 19 to go.
Time to call it a nite: still missing 3-T, 1C, and 1E. Close but no cigar.
