Default You're on an effing tear this month!

Now I'm hoping I can just make the top three in 4x4

Amazing!! I'm really impressed with all the words you know as well. I just go for pattern recognition and waste a lot of time with words that don't exist whereas you go straight for just the words that exist. Very nice.

Thanks, fasteddieb. The words just pop up in your mind after playing so much, it can be gratifying. My potential on that puzzle is so much better though, maybe one day I'll break 2,000 points on it, seems realistic if I'm on top of my game.

Brisul, Make those fingers move faster and you'll improve. Worked for me.

Amazing! I don't think I could even see words that fast let alone get them typed or swiped in!

Had to watch it a second time just so I could watch the board stat count drop like a stone

MegaWord is a certified butt-kicker. I was going to play every board I came across this month, then I came across a 4X4 board where MegaWord only scored 235 points. I said, "Nope, no way." Then skipped to the next board. Now I wish that I had played that board. I wonder if I could have hit 150?

I'm working on making my fingers move faster. While I may not have my highest average score this month, that has more to do with a couple of low scores I started with. I feel as though I'm having one of my best months ever. I'm consistently finding 140+ words in my games now and scoring in the 700's. Feels pretty great!

Brisul, that's good to hear. Sometimes playing those little or medium size puzzles can force you to learn new words that you neglect in the larger puzzles. I started off this month (at least 100 puzzles) playing every game with around 550 point average. If I was going for 51 game high average it would be over 1,000 points now.

Here's a vid of 3 of them consecutively.

And a 226 word game. 4x4

I've gained six points on my monthly average in the past two days. My goal is to get to the over 700 point average and at the pace I'm going, that looks like a possibility. I feel like a 700 point average for the month is part of the elite scoring community. It's like batting over .300 in baseball.

I watched a couple of your videos and they have helped me to see some words I never knew existed. Thanks for posting those. It's been really helpful.
