4 - 63
D - 23

Yay!! first time I've played in a hundred years (almost) and on my first run-through I got 105 words... usually stumped at 50% on first run.... there IS a Christmas elf.
Now I have to look for those nine- and ten- letter words...heigh-ho!!
First 2 words - the 9 and 10 - woohoo!
Oh, I LOVE those 9/10! Wish I had three of them. :)
Hm, an N6/24 I do not like. Thought that was slang, and very discriminating.

Krys10, I am really glad you do! Some mistakes will keep us awake... lol
And it is much more fun babbling with stats, at least I think so. Thanks again.
Ow, a nice R7/28!
And a very subdued M7/52
7s so far (8 of 11):
G7/36 -- castrators
M7/40 -- bestowed an M5/14 upon
M7/52 -- subdued
R7/44 -- looks for again
R7/28 -- to call by a name again
S7/44 -- insect (combo 8/60)
S7/28 -- petitioners, courters (alt. spelling)
T7/28 -- walks unsteadily
I have 4 M words that go with the M/7 but I can't find the M/7 :(
what do the 9 and 10 start with please?
If you have the M5/16, all you need is an ending.
And the biggies start with M.
found the M/7, thanks, sprite
found the 9 and 10, what a great way to start the day!
H7/48 -- one who bargains
N7/36 -- quibbler
(find one, find the other)
Found the last 7 (if I counted right):
S7/36 -- attackers
That H7/48 - is it an American-used word? I've never heard it before
the H/7/48 is an alternative spelling. In the US it usually starts with an HA
ahhh ok - same in the UK - its usually HA too
Yes, alt. spelling, it says so in the dictionairy too. Sorry I left that out.
Aarrgghh... make that dictionary. :(
he he no probs - I was just interested - sometimes with the dictionary being US based, its hard for me to tell whether something is a US-ism or an alternate spelling - and I'm just inquisative enough to try and find out ...
these alternate spellilng are really tricky. sometime they are hard to figure out, like the s/7/28. I am pretty sure what the word is but can't figure out the alt. spelling of it. :(
There is an L6/24 that is an alt. spelling as well, found it just because I didn't realise the last letter was missing, and babble accepted it. Some kind of clothing.
@ periwinkle: for that alt. spelling, realise there is no O in this grid. ;)
sprite, found the L/6/24. Will keep looking for the S/28. Thanks for the hint. :D
sprite, I found the s/7/28. I think a better definition would be: wooer or admirer.:D
Checking my list for plurals helped me finish: 169 words / 5.04 / 2965 points.
It's always those plurals and past tenses that do me in! :P
Nice grid today - enjoyed playing.
Thanks, periwinkle, I'll remember that! Thought that courter was the same thing, but your defs are much clearer. :)
having trouble finding the r/7/28.
Perhaps that def isn't too great either, but I couldn't think of a better one without giving the whole word away. You probably have the T5/10 that forms the base for it.
don't have any t/5/10 words yet, will keep looking
sorry, sprite, courter is the same as admirer but when I saw petitioner and courter I was thinking along the lines of something legal and I knew that I couldn't make:solicitor :)
*lol* I can imagine you had a hard time finding an alternate spelling for that!
Actually, the dictionary gives a legal def for the S7/28 as well. ;)
Do all the N's start with the same two lettes?
inaniloquent - yes they do
Hey Whats up anyone wanna chat with me
missing 3 L's
LY4x3, LY5x1, LE6x1
thanks, I have the LE6x1 and the LY4x3 can't figure out the other three
I'm at 123 words and I'm stuck, stuck, stuck!!! This is my fourth game ever and I love it, it's really challenging
having trouble with the n's
two of the n's were words I've never heard of and the other is a derogatory term
got the derogatory one
n6-to quibble n7-a quibbler
re 2 n words--one is a derivative of the other--one is the act-- the other the actor
got em! Can't wait to use that one on a person I work with tomorrow!
