thanks for any help.
Take a look at one of Megaword's videos to see how fast someone can type. Just phenomenal. Recent example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKmAO3i_ZEU

I have seen a you tube video of somebody who got a crazy high score once and basically they don't really take time to look at the board they just start typing words from a couple of the letters which means I saw them type words not possible but from the few words they looked at they thought they would be there.

MegaWord is on the road to greatness
Default How?

I think Quatchkopf is speaking of my 97 of 98 words vid which was only 525 points, since there was a similar comment with a similar name on the vid. When I'm desperate to find more words I just keep typing things that might be there (hence what was meant by "not possible"), just seeing the letters might bring something to mind for me.

To address the main question, I get as many words as I do by typing fast, which occured by playing thousands of games with the intent of becoming better.

Thanks for the clarification, I always type not possible words, and sometimes they turn out to be possible....just not possible in the way I think they might be!

That's one advantage of typing compared to swiping. You don't actually have to find the word, you just have to suspect that it's there. I've gotten quite a few long words without really taking the trouble to make sure they're there. (That just slows me down, and I can miss good words that way.)

Default just wondering??

has anyone currently playing ever found or stumbled upon the last word of a board? With the quality of players here I wouldn't doubt it could be or has been done but with boards allegedly being retired after 50-52 plays I'd expect that to be an achievement to be bragged about. And it's never heard of.

I recently played a board with only 138 available words, 103 which had been found and I was able to add two more. I wasn't paying too much attention but I think it'd been played 34 times. Or possibly 43, a bit of a dyslexic case here!
