got the 10
Ok, *gotta* go to bed. Starter list for teh biggies:
(two eights missing)
(six sevens missing)
Too tired to come up with definition hints now - in the morning!
1 to add ...
a second W7/56
I cant find the I 10
i still have a lot of them to find, but i havent found the 10 yet either
10 for 119 - i
How does this work? Can I use any tiles? Do they have to be in order? Or can they be completely selected from random on the board?
serenade - the tiles you use in each word must be touching (top, bottom, sides, diagonally) and you can only use each tile once per word
thanks, I found the rules.
when you say you haven't found the 10 does that mean there's a 10 letter word?
Check out the first posting, seranade. it lists how many words of each length and how many words of each starting letter.
the i10/119 is related to the S8/75.
yes it is worth 119 points
... and an S7/52.
thanks for the help
i10/119 relates to 8/70i
i8/70 put away a blade
S8/75 put away a blade
O8/55 stubborn, hardened
(two eights missing)
A7/32 several definitions: 1) resembling gold 2) having ears
E7/44 put underground
H7/44 1) encouraged or 2) what the tin man aspired to be
N7/28 (pl) characteristics or qualities
O7/36 1) more indirect or 2) an angle closer to 180 deg.
O7/40 (arch) to have penned superior literature
S7/44 (for most of us) moved toward the equator
S7/52 related to S8/75
W7/56 ranted ?
(three sevens missing)
thanks for the clues Krys!
A 7/32: supplied with oxygen
The other 8s are variously spelled courtesans.
And there is a 7/H/40 that goes with them. (The 8s are both H/55).
ok, i need to work on all 3 of the "courtesan" words. also need to keep working on the N7, the )7/40, and the S7/52. any news on the last 7?
Found all the H words - thank you, Forthright's Phrontistery! Ricey, what was that last 7 we were looking for?
krys: id never heard of that site before, just checked it out and its fab!!
Amazingly, I can! I'm still missing 6 Bs, but you're missing a BH4. :)
ah, didn't occur to me the second letter might not be a vowel. Thanks, testing!
i could use some help on the N7/28, O7/40, and the S7/52...havent found any of the Ns yet, actually...
If those are the only big ones you're missing, then you've already got the S/7/52. It's a part of another word. ;)
For the O - consider a contest among authors (akin to a pie-eating type of contest). The winner would be said to have "O******" the others. It's a bit archaic, but does make sense and isn't totally obscure.
The N is plural of an N6 which is a very common, everday type of word. Think outdoors. The third N is an N5/10 that appears in these puzzles pretty often.
all i have of those is the S. Think about how one carries a sword.
ahh, i had the S6 version of that word...didnt know about the variable in spelling!
ok, got the O7, now i just gotta work on the Ns...none of them are popping out at me, so i think i gotta noodle! hehe
I believe the 6 is the noun and the 7 is the verb.
ahh! finally got the N6/7 combo! one of those *DUH* moments! gonna noodle around for the N5 now!
The last 7 is a D/44--it's an obscure spelling of an obscure cereal grain that's shown up here before--play with a gloomy D4 to find it.
(and three shorter variation(s))
BTW - My 6/7 verb/noun statement below is about the S words - not the Ns, in case it confuses anyone. :)
ahh, that makes sense then, testing :)
hrmmm...this D7 is gonna drive me bonkers, isnt it? hehe
my goodness, you guys have been productive over the last hour!
I'm close to finishing the H's and the O's: OBx3, OUx5 (missing one)
HE4x2, HE5x3, HE6x2, HE7x2, HE8x2
Can anyone help?
There are Oux6--one does not share the others' third letter
HA4x8, HA5x6, HE4x3
You're missing an OU. I have 1x5, 4x6 and 1x7.
Much thanks to you both!
i thought there were only five eights?
sorry, nevermind, i can't read.
Hee hee - that was in response to your question - I'm not saying you can't read! :-D
OK, I'm going to do a dump of all the letters that I'm still missing something. I'm only missing 1 or 2 of each, so hopefully they'll help someone. And hopefully someone can help me. :)
