Default "Mintings"

Mintings is not a word?

I have had boards on 4x4 with two G's. Not sure about 5x5, though.

I've definitely had 5x5 boards with two Gs. (I know I had some form of AGGLUTINATE, along with others.) They often even have two Qs.

I've also seen two Zs.

WordTwist definitely isn't using the Boggle set. Since boards are seeded with long words, I've seen boards with up to 9 Ss before.

That post of mine that Razorflame quoted is from August 2015. At that time, Wordtwist boards had limits on how often a letter could occur: E and S could occur up to 5 times, A, I, N, O, R, T, and U could occur up to 3 times each, and all other letters could only occur once. But in December 2015, a bunch of new boards were created without those restrictions, so now it's quite common to see 2 or more G's.

I play mostly for long/high-scoring words. A few weeks ago, I was playing a board and didn't see much. I did see something that looked kind of word-like, so I typed in DIRIGIBILITIES. To my amazement, it worked. I looked it up afterward in their dictionary & it didn't show up. (It suggested that maybe I was looking for "dirty girl".) Unfortunately, it was worth quite a bit lower than my average points/word at the time, so I discarded the game.

Update: The only definition I could think of for dirigibility was the property of being able to be turned into a dirigible. I googled it though, and it means susceptibility to control. I'd never thought about the origin of the word dirigible itself...
