Wordracer says only 43 words in this one! No 8 letter words, only one 7. (These stats are not always accurate - perhaps someone will do the detailed stats)
maybe Babble is giving us a break after yesterday's monster? :)
feeling tired though fatigue w5 gives u 40 can i have a clue 4 the w6 and the 7 please
T7: person with very light colored hair
W6x2: refer to breathing difficulties
Ah-oh... you know it is bad when clues are given for 6-words ! Missed playing, though I had a wonderful (kidsfree) holiday - let's see if we can find all 43.
welcome back, sprite! You would have liked yesterday's 300+ word grid -- this one is not as fun. But there's always another big one in the near future :)
Thanks, metags! :D
Too bad I missed such a huge one, but you are right, there will be more. I found 12 words so far and they are not coming easy... such small grids are a challenge all by themselves ;-)
T6/36: north american bird, also called chewink, ground robin.
i'm at 26 words...547 points is not bad...but no WAY am i finding 17 more words
30/621 here... and about stuck.
same here at 32/605, only looking at the grid sporadically to see if a fresh look once in a while would help ;-)
well, the good news is that we have at least a few words that are different because i have 30/608 now
A funny W5/22: tropical marine food and game fish
I am close now, at 42 words, so I'll list what I have.
A -- 3
D -- 1
E -- 1
F -- 3
G -- 6
H -- 8
O -- 3
P -- 1
T -- 2
W -- 12
Y -- 2
------ so far 42/762
7 -- 1 (T)
6 -- 3 (T,W,W)
5 -- 10
4 -- 28
Found another H-word, 4/13.
Scottish word for meeting place, has appeared in grids before.
43 words / 4.44 / 775 points.
Could I have another clue for the T7 please, cant get it from that one. Thanks
I have A4/10 can anyone help with the missing ones please.
Thank you, Ste!
So then we have:
H -- 9
4 -- 29
Glad I don't have to hunt for some obscure missing word ;)
I found the Scottish word hard enough, although I had seen it before.
Treble99: for the 7, think of that on which those blond hairs are attached. It is a compound word.
The As go: 5/14 - 4/5 - 4/10.
Thanks sprite I will try and find the As I found the T7.
I have F4/7 and F4/10 can you help with the missing one also are there 9H words. Thank You
I have the F word now just missing 1H I think.
yes there are 9H words
I'm down to 1 h and 1 w. Here's what I have: wa4, wh4x4, wh5x2, wh6x2, wo4, wo5x1
he4x2, he5, ho4x3, ho5, hu4. Can anyone help me end the misery :)
fit1, I just finished my H's - I have ho4x4.
All the HO4's are fairly common words except for the Scottish one sprite referred to earlier.
Thanks Krys. I had the hard one, and i was missing one I thought I had typed in earlier. Apparantly I didn't. So now i'm down to a w, which I think is a w5
I found the last double. And I'll say that word because I am done, done, done.
oops, that should read I found the last w
fit1, it's a WA word, a fish word described earlier, and I felt like crowing it when I found it!
fit1, you are missing the W5 I mentioned at 02.27 am. It comes before all the other Ws and I found it by trying other startingletters for a well known Y5 email service ;-)
Ah, well... better late than never. Congrats for finishing!
Thanks for coming to our rescue, sprite. I'm done! I'm gone!
i seem to be missing a g/5....i have ga/5 x 2....can anyone help?
got it by counting points....it's a g5/14 if you're curious
I found an h/4/13 with no meaning in dictionary.com. Is it the scottish word?
It is. I remember it from other puzzles.
I can't find the D word. Hints please.
I have been looking for the d word all day, can't find it at all...
It's probably some obscure word we have never heard of.
I don't believe there is a word. I just can't find a thing.
It's a 4 letter word. I am only missing two words. The d and one g/4.
d word: A lateen rigged sailing vessel used by arabs
No there is a D word, though it's one that I've never heard before. Got it by luck only, it sure as heck wasn't skill. Let me see if I can give a clue that will help you...Here is the definition off of the Dictionary.com site.
Any of various lateen-rigged sailing vessels, typically having a raised poop, a raked stem, and one or two masts, used along the coasts of the Indian Ocean.
n : a lateen-rigged sailing vessel used by Arabs
That's the best I can do to help you without giving it away.
Ah someone beat me to the definition. :D Must have posted while I was looking it up for you all. :D
Once I saw the word, I knew it. I have seen the word before.
I'm done, first one I finished completely. Of course, it was a small one and it took me all day. Good thing the boss doesn't care what I do.
Can someone please tell me how you know how many words there are in each puzzle? Where does it tell you? How do you know when you are done?
