Welcome to the fraternity of splitpersonalitynesses.

Thanks. I'll definitely have to look for that word. (Maybe only our kind are able to see it.) If I continue with Spike1007..., will I be able to find SUPERSPLITPERSONALITYNESSES?

Spike1005 and now Spike1006? Just out of curiosity, what did you do with the other 1,004 Spikes?

You'll never know (I hope).

Maybe I should have started counting down, just to throw you off track.

Lol Spike and pdiddp

I was wondering what 006 would specialize in, but now I'm really curious if there will be a 007 ?

Good games to you!

TR, it turns out that 006 isn't doing too much different than 005. I'm still going for long words, but with a looser criterion. I got tired of throwing away new longest words just because they wouldn't raise my score.

If I go to 007, will that give me a license to spell?

LOL! I think you would enter the job with full qualifications

and remember, lots of extras come with the job: a car that's also a boat, fully equipped with specialty items, like a word radar; a pen that will .... uh-oh.. hopefully the pen doesn't chase the good guys or write on them or anything.

Hope you have lots of fun with 006, but if you feel like going for 007, it'll be a hoot!

Enjoy!

Default How to piss away a month's work in 1 easy game

Very prophetic pdiddp. (Did you put a curse on me??? lol ) Just happened to me again. Took all month til now to get an average/word of 38.2 pts with you right on my tail. Before starting a game, I scrolled up to see the puzzle stats better (which hides the username) and didn't realize I was playing a regular game under thinkbig. ONE GAME took me down to 29 pts!!!!

I was at first down and goal and didn't fumble the ball. Instead I gave it to you to cross into my endzone and win the game. Lol, so congrats to you. You put in the time, skill and effort without making any boneheaded mistakes.

I'm not going to even try a comeback. Playing for highest avg/word is tedious at the best of times and intolerable when you're royally pissed off with yourself. I'm beginning to see why many have retired from going for the highest avg pts/word trophy.

AHA!! My evil plan worked to perfection! Next I'll try sabotaging the high score leaders so my paltry scores will be on top!

I very nearly did myself in more than once this month. In a couple games I swiped in what I thought would be a high enough scoring word (it wasn't) then very nearly let the timer run out locking in those lower scores.

And yes! It does get very tedious and frustrating trying for the high average. I'll only try for it once in awhile, after a month of clicking past game after game I need a break! Besides, if I'm gonna spend my time playing a game, I may as well enjoy the play and not just the results!
