Game chat. For people who love the game and want to talk about it with each other.
Question: Are we actually getting a few NEW levels mixed in with all the repeats or is my memory just worse than I thought?🤣
Hey Paddling Nana. Look how far up the list we've come in just a few days. Thanks to all for the positive contributions and here's to keeping it a whinge(winge)-free zone!!
Yeah ... I'm certainly not in their league ... and probably never will be!!
If we ever get that 'by invite' tournament happening that we discussed a couple of days ago, I hope they factor in the different time zones!
Egad, never tried that word, Shell. You are definitely at a disadvantage to this game with the time zones. No way I would get up that early to play but I have heard that Australia is absolutely lovely. I can't believe the score that Jeff Vincent has related. OMG! I guess there are some really good players out there!
Wordsmith, I definitely agree on joining the tournaments at the very start. I have done that and recent weeks have been rough (I usually finish 1st or 2nd):
This week: 1. Eloise 15,393 pt, 2. TVK 12,570 pt, 3. Jeff (me) 10,267 pt (my personal best)
Two weeks ago: 1. Pop 13,053 pt, 2. alb 10,963 pt, 3. Jeff 8050 pt.
Part of the raised competitiveness has been the 100-person tournaments -- you are guaranteed to have several hot-shots to compete with.
Thanks for the word list -- "tun" and "ssh" are new ones for me.
And thanks to nana for starting this "no-whining" zone!
I'll try egad... have to admit ssh was an accidental find. I has going for she! Warning for those who have one touch purchase, you may be accidentally purchasing stuff you don't want when those popup bundles pop up. I haven't figured out how to get a refund yet, but I did manage to go to Google play settings and change to authorization required for purchases.
Just got a chance to use bier ... was not aware of that one tks. Just discovered 'egad' as a bonus word.
Good Morning all! Yes, Charlie ... 12 hrs ahead. Tks for that Opal. Wasn't sure what time the Tourney started ... Just knew it was Saturday morning. Now I know it's 6am, getting outa bed that early on a Saturday morning, just to start a word game ... it ain't gonna happen!! 😉
"Geld" is worth a point but I don't recall seeing it in a puzzle. I wonder if all Greek letters spelled with 7 or less English letters count?
Opal, you're out of my league...sorry about the weather. Shell, are you 12 hours ahead of the Eastern Zone?
Almost reached 10,000 this weekend at 9,544. I played almost every waking hour (weather was awful). Shell, the tourneys start at 6 pm EDT on Friday and end at 11 pm EDT on Sunday. When daylight savings time ends, it returns to 5 pm on Friday and 10 pm on Sunday for those in the Eastern time zone. Thanks for the weird words, Wordsmith. I've also found pee, pees and peed are also bonus words but never in the puzzle. A little crude, I suppose. Didn't realize SSH works. Thanks again.
More weird little bonus words ...

You all liked eld and del, lea is another one never found in a puzzle but counts as bonus.
Hello all. I'm new here.

Wow! So glad you all came to our new forum.
Where’s Marco? Wow, Shell, we did get out of the whine zone just in time.
I’ve also noticed far more competition if you start as soon as the tourney starts. I usually start early Saturday morning.
Opal, I’ve wondered the same about unsuccessfully trying a word that I thought I used before, but I put it off to my memory but now you have me wondering again. 😂
Just got the chance (and remembered) to use del and eld. Common sense tells me I should have known eld but when I saw 'old age' and 'senility' in the definition it was obvious why I hadn't thought of it before 😂😂
Thanks Wordsmith 😉
Ended at 8:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (California).
I think this is later than it used to be, but could be wrong.
Just to satisfy my curiosity ... what time on Sunday does the game finish for you all? For me it's 11am Monday morning (Western Australian time).
Wow Wordsmith ... they are some epic scores ... outa my league too!!
I decided not to enter Tourney but did so inadvertently. Couldn't stand seeing the 98 and then 99 in the Tourney star. So last night decided to do something about it. Didn't take too long to get to 12th position with 600+ points. Then this morning managed to climb to 3rd position with just over 2000 points. 1st was only 2600 points so quite a non-event here.
