Where do you get the babble stats from?
We make them ourselves. It takes a couple of tricks to get it done without seeing the words, but a friend of mine made a statmaker that makes it a little easier (less time consuming). Most of us enjoy it more when there are stats, so we know what we are aiming for. ;-)
I have only one 7 so far (still dizzy of yesterday's maybe *lol*): R7/28
Oh, and a A7/36.
Congratulations Sprite that was one BIG grid yesterday. It must have taken you hours.
Thanks, that is a new word for me! :-)
@ Mal: I must confess... it did, and I enjoyed every minute! Rarely happens that a day off coincides with a big grid. It was a real challenge.
Sprite clever you!
metags, I like the O7!
Lacking quickness of perception or intellect - not for babblers, then ;-)
I like the word too! my excuse for playing Babble is that it helps keep my mind nimble. But playing too much makes me O7 :-D
That's for sure. I really slipped up with copying the recap yesterday, totally O7d by the giant grid. :-)
Ah, F7/48, nice one!
'night sprite! Still recovering from yesterday's grid, need to catch some Zs.
Sleep well - hope to see you later. :-)
Interesting T7/40: pipes, nozzles, or other openings through which air is forced into a blast furnace or forge to facilitate combustion.
Anyone playing who can help me with the last C? It must be a 6. So far I have C6/24 x 3 and C6/33.
Found it by noodling. It is another C6/33, a dead language.

Help with what, taylor??
oreo is a proper name.
And that T/7/40 pipes is a great word that I was so psyched to know! I do combustion modeling as part of my job, and learned that word from a client a couple months ago talking about modeling his burner. It actually appeared in a grid a couple weeks ago too. It's fun to know obscure words!
For a moment I thought that the T7 word was a kind of Cheese! :-)
T/7/36 is one more than R/6/24, which isn't worth what it was under Stalin.
too bad you can't combine the r/7/48 with the f/7/48
a7/36 and a7/36 - different spelling of the same word
What? No uber? :p
any hints on the a7s? they're driving me crazy! :)
May I please have hints for the 8 letter words.
The A7s: Needlelike, as the leaves of pine.
I keep seeing 'attribute' and 'ferocious'... argh!
stats are nice but there's no way your're not seeing the words. How can you account for a perfect score of 495 words?
i was lurking around on Sunday (work day for me, never a Babble day) and I was impressed with the big 495 monster. I think that's the biggest I've seen - does anyone remember a bigger one? And I think the smallest I've seen is about 37...
there was one this past summer that was 425 i spent the whole day on it
I think I've done a 29-word puzzle before. Very disappointing.
an e 5 for 14, how did i ever pull that from my memory? and why would anyone use it instead of belch ?
