Ah, but I thus missed "quantizers". And, worse than that, backspaced to fix a typing error, and the game at that time booted you and didn't count anything if you were backspacing as time ran out.

What I find even more frustrating is when I see a great word and know that I have enough time to type it, but because I'm in a hurry at that point, I mistype it and don't get the points.

Been there, done that. The faster I try to type, the more mistakes I make!

A few minutes ago I was a second too late to get the 18 pt word squiress, then three puzzles later I got it on a completely different board.

Bumping this thread on the desperate hope/theory that I'm not the only one who's been missing killer words this week

So far I've minimally missed and panicked to try to enter with time running down:

anthropomorphize, -izes, -izers, -izer)
refractivenesses (but got refractiveness and activenesses)
inconsequentialities (but at least got inconsequential)

Others? Anyone? Bueller?

Yeah, I found PICTURESQUE, couldn't see the N to create NESS because my finger was in the way. Then toward the end with about 15 seconds I saw it and kept failing to link the letters with my finger. I was so upset but its "INCONSEQUENTIALITY" is evident now. Lol

Man, if that INCONSEQUENTIALITIES happens to be ultra rare, were talkin 42 points.

Great idea and great 'club,' Zeno

The new boards have some super words, but my excited fingers go all the wrong ways. I just can't seem to get a lot of those typed before the bar turns gray.

Had to laugh out loud today - The most frustrating one that got away was not the best I've missed: "EVENTUALITY."

Still chuckling.
