That's a great find kate!

The "RIENNES" with the RIEN instead of RIAN and all is really super "combobulated."

Enjoy!

I saw a game that had been played once and the best word record was 21 pts and longest 10 letters. I thought, "Let's see what they found." Saw TRANQUILLIZING (yes, 2 l's) not too far into the game and played it, thinking that would be the 21 pt record. But, nope, 23 pts. Nice! New, unexpected record. Then noticed -ly at the end of -ing and played TRANQUILLIZINGLY. 37 pts!! I think my eyeballs involuntarily bulged outward like in the cartoons when I saw that. Lol, who da thunk?

Great description, too!

Hope I see it and get to play it. Someone told me playing some of the boards that already have long words found in them is good practice Sounds like good advice.

Enjoy!

Just played a 5x5 again, best word was 13 pts. Found EXTORTIONS (20 pts) and was going to leave it at that. Thought it was a shame that "expectations" wasn't in the game even though it looked as if it might be. Then I tried to form other somewhat plausible words. The new record?
EXPECTORATIONS

Definition of Expectoration

1. Noun. The process of coughing up and spitting out.

Ewwww! :P

Thanks TR. I enjoyed your artwork.
That does sound like good advice. It's something I do myself.
I had a breakthrough on the trans- issue yesterday. I found TRANSCENDENTALNESSES fairly quickly for 38 pts and 2 new records. Woohoo!

That's a BIG breakthrough, too. Happy you got it !

Glad the 'artwork' gave a smile.

Enjoy!

Thanks to you, I just got that word (and on the same board).
