OEUVRES, because it's so easy to misspell and none of the letter combinations in it are common.

AZOLES.

I was hoping I'd find a drug category other than STATINS some time, and PLATINS didn't work.

PANDANUS - growing up in Dubai, my parents had a lot of Southeast Asian friends, so I ended up eating a lot of pandan-flavored foods.

The biomedical side of me loved this board: found both biochemistry and anatomy terms on the same board that hadn't been found before. I often find one or the other, but not both.

NUCLEOPROTEIN (19)
NUCLEOPROTEINS (26)
PRONATE (9)
PRONATES (11)
PRONATOR (11)
PROTEINASE (14)

Sciencey words are definitely not one of my strong suits. It's not within my pattern recognition style of play. So my favorite would be dehydrochlorinate and paleoclimatologist. But those are the exceptions and not the rule as far as finding those types of words.

My favorite so far is BIBLIOPHAGISTS. I knew that biblio-means book and phage=eater, so a bibliophagist is a person who "devours" books. I hope it's used metaphorically.

I had to go to the

site to find the definition. It wasn't in our dictionary or in the
HTML Code:
dictionary.com
site.

Default Best words not found

Because I'm a word lover (and because I can't type/think fast enough to tie high number-of-word scores or high scores), I check most boards on a Boggle checker just to see the words I'm missing.

This particular screen showed a game played 49 times, so it's retired. Everyone who played it missed 8 words longer than those played. I thought you might like to see the kinds of words we as a group of 50 missed.
Words missed: terebrated, terebrate, unsatiate, berettas, retraite, retraitt, retrated, terebrae

But my all-time favorite word that I didn't find is
ABSQUATULATE: to abscond with someone or with something (like money)
to depart in a hurry
