147 words today... I'm sure someone will be along with stats shortly. So far my best is an 8/60.
You mean 147 in total? That can be done... I have no 8 yet, so I am glad to know there is one!
marigold, are you playing?
what does the 8 start with?
Hmmm 90 words just one 7 and one 8 so far...
the 8 starts with a Q
thanks, found it right away.
147 words / 4.61 / 1474 points
That was a fast one!
sprite, may I have a clue for the T7.
Not stats, because I'm missing 3 words, but here's what I have so far:
144 / 4.61 /1456
Any help with the last three would be appreciated very much.
Ooops...make that 1-8
I have t7. What does the other t start with?
I mean of course the other 7 :)
I have a 7 that starts with Q
purlease someone - a clue for the T7??
the other 7 starts with q
I'm always a day late and a dollar short :-)
thanks big. I had just found it when you validated me with your answer :)
i keep seeing seqouyah
clues for the t and q seven would be appreciated.
I keep wanting to make turqoise! So close...
best word is an H5/18!
i need serious clues people, chop, chop
Oh yeah and tell me if you voted for BUSH!
thanks for saying turqoise, now i see it as well! (message 2 kukana!)
now a T6/21
it still sux!
O_O can you do an English translation of that clue?? lol
peri, the Q is a past tense of a 5. The t is a weird word. It's starts with a four letter word meaning exam, and the last 3 letters are the same as a singer's. Sorry I can't do better :(
fit1, thanks, I found the Q word before your post. Not sure about the T word. Got the first part. Is the singer male or female. That may help me.
found the T/7 by noodling. It means tortoise or shield.
I have 6 A words. All 4 letters except one with 5 letters. ai4x2, ai5, anx4, asx4 and atx4. What am I missing?
aha! thanks Periwinkle - I got it immediately when you said tortoise!
There is an AN for 5
Also and AE for 4
stuck at 95. will take a break. see you later.
I'll do a letter count.
Ewenme, all you are missing are 3 N's. For the rest your stats are complete.
I do not have a 9, only an 8 (Q).
2x 7 (QT)
I have a q8. Think superlative.
sprite are the stats correct if so, is there a 9
sprite usually does the stats thats why I asked, any clues for the T7 would be appreciated.
Correction: I never do stats. I tried it once, with a grid from the archives, and couldn't find a way to copy the words without seeing at least a few of them. So I stay away from the solver.
I think the stats are correct now. No 9, but an 8.
As for the T7, these are the defs:
A Roman siege device consisting of a movable screen protecting the besiegers' approach to a wall; or
a cover formed by the overlapping shields of besiegers and held over their heads.
But at 11.22 am fit1 had a nice clue that gives you at least the first 4 letters.
sorry sprite, who usually does the stats
You just normally finish first and are quite helpful Sprite :)
Missing a T5 12 to finish. Have a Ti5 12
Often it is shortseer/goforit.
Sometimes Krys10 too. Krys10 used wordracer before, but I believe she uses another one now, and found out how to do a letter count without seeing the words.
All I can do, sometimes, is counting what I have. Since runningforhome said (at 12.35 am) that there are 147 words today, I thought my count would be complete.
The other T5/12 is Te, and it is a funny word that comes up in babble grids quite a lot.
thanks for the clues sprite
Wow, you're right that is a funny little word. Have to remember that one the next time I play scrabble and have an abundance of vowels.
ha! if you are out there, our school mascot is in this puzzle!!!
Now how will I get to sleep when you make me so curious about that school mascotte thing!
the school legend has it that the school mascot, a large brass thing in front of the library, would fly if a virgin were ever to graduate. the mascot was a land turtle and no, the statue has yet to fly...: )
Onyx, I hope that isn't a high school mascot... :p
nope it wasn't.
Thank you Sprite...finally got those last three Ns. Sometimes it helps to go away and come back...with lots of help from friends.
Hi guys - sorry no stats - been away on vacation, will be back in action tomorrow. This one looked fun! :)
Onyx, we had a similar story at the University of Michigan. We had two lions in front of our library, and if they roared, a virgin was passing. They never roared :)
