I haven't found STUPENDOUSNESSES yet but I did beat you to the punch a year ago with STUPENDIOUS in a 4x4 game. It was my and TurtleRace's favorite word for quite a while.

I guess it's not surprising, but I think I just tried BOBA and BOBAS for the first time and got ultra-rare points for both.

I just learned a new word today after trying to join contra- and -ations: CONTRAVALLATIONS (22 pts,15 ltrs, 2 records)
Definition of Contravallation
1. n. A trench guarded with a parapet, constructed by besiegers, to secure themselves and check sallies of the besieged.
I suspect that Zeno knows it based on his previous find of MACHICOLATIONS.

I knew the word, but I suspect I'd have a hard time finding it anyway. Congrats!
