It's not enough to get the good boards. You also have to find the words. :D

That's where I run into trouble! :o

The reason it took so long to try typing it in is that it really didn't look like a real word. I just finally gave up on finding anything else! :)

My lips are sealed! ;)

Today's not-really-a-word find is TECHNOSTRESSES. I stuck the two pieces together just for grins, as I couldn't figure out anything that seemed viable. 26 points and set a...

Well, I quickly got tired of typing 5-point words! :eek:

So I'm picking boards with at least some words with 9+ letters.

Compromise.

I can't swipe as fast or accurately as I can type, but sometimes with a convoluted word, I use it to figure out what letters are available for suffixes or prefixes.

Rats! I just typed all but the last 2 letters of EXTRAVAGANTNESSES when the timer ran out. Pmoffit had already found it ... 34 points lost to slow fingers and slower brain. :(

Oh yes, I've been there! I need a sleepy timer when I'm playing real WordTwist. So many times I need another 30-60 seconds to find the big words!

That was a frustrating find. I picked up HYDROFLUOROCARBONS first but could see there was something more. I must have typed HYDROCHLOROFLUOROCARBONS 3 times before I tried the singular. Not sure why...

Interesting! Never would have guessed. I just looked it up: "consisting of four letters." Why would they need a word for that? :confused:
