Really happy with my ultra rare performance this game. Overall, my typing speed was slow, and I could have scored 1,000+ points if I didn't focus too much time on the ultra rare words.

Now, I need to find a balance between the two so I can finally score 850+ points in a single game in the future.
Congratulations on your new record. Hope to see you made that 850+ game soon. You seem to really have a handle on your goal to improve these scores. Wow! and Well Done!

First new record of the month:
764 points, 145 words (74 common, 19 wide, 5 rare, 47 ultra rare)

Only three more words than my previous total, but still an improvement! The board I got it on had 810 possible words, which means that if I get this board again this month, I should be able to get over 900 points on this board, so long as I am able to get more Ultra Rare words when I get this board again.

Thanks for the good luck! It finally paid off!

Just got this:

903 points / 144 words (59 common, 8 wide, 18 rare, 59 ultra rare)

Finally broke the 850 and 900 score barriers in the same game. I'm ultra happy with my performance in this game as I got the same number of ultra rare and rare words, which is very unusual for me in a game of this caliber board. Still feel like I could have scored much higher had I been able to find the words more easily. There were at least 5 times where I stopped typing for at least 5 seconds looking for more words to type in, and if I want to get higher scoring games, I need to remove these pauses from my gameplay in the future.

First new lifetime high score of the month and first game over 900!

Another new lifetime high score:

852 points, 146 (59 common, 17 wide, 12 rare, 58 ultra rare)

Again, beat my old most words high score by only one word this time, but the board was a fairly tough board, and I'm happy with my play for this board.

Way to go! You really persevered and reached high!

Those are truly awesome scores. It's extremely hard to learn new words and have them flow through the fingers. Sometimes it takes a while. It looks like you skipped the hunting and pecking and went straight to a few seconds here and there.

I'm sure you will get past any pauses in record time.

Congratulations!

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement TR! If there were an award for friendliest user on this site, I'd give it to you

Total points: 408
Total words: 87 (37 common,16 wide,11 rare,23 ultra rare)

High Score: 583 points by zolorbowl
Most Words: 123 words by zolorbowl

This just goes to show that I still have a lot to learn in 4x4 before I can even think of comparing to some of the better and best players in this board size At least I found the new highest word for this board

Congrats on the new highest word

There are a good many boards I've played after one or two of the All-Time-Greats (scary that) and I practically do a happy dance if I get a green word

Thank you for the kind words.

You were just wonderful with your post to Brisul. The thought you put into your words and the desire to help were very evident. (He does have it in him to be and stay a top-level player)

Enjoy your games!

Thanks for your kind words!

My goals this month:

Top 50 4x4
Top 50 5x5
New Most Words

Doing the double Top 50 is very difficult to do, since it required a very high number of games played on my part.

The last time I was able to do this was back in January of this year. I should really try to get this double feat at least once or twice more before the end of the year Plus, I need more 4x4 ribbons

I definitely believe that I can easily eclipse my highest word total on both 4x4 and 5x5 this month. Both are definitely within reach, especially in 5x5. A new 4x4 most words lifetime highscore will be much trickier for me to get than the 5x5 most words lifetime high score.

I don't think I will get a new lifetime high score in 5x5 this month, but if I get good boards, I'll still try my hardest

And just as I predicted, a new most words lifetime high score in 4x4:

483 points / 113 words (71 common, 11 wide, 3 rare, 28 ultra rare)

Really low ultra rare word count here, but I'm sure I'll be able to get more as time goes on.

----------------------------------------------

Further developments today:

I beat a 2yxsters score in 4x4 earlier today, and I got my third 850+ score game in 5x5

These are just more signs that I'm improving steadily.
