    Wow! Some people have forgotten why I started this chat site in the first place.
    Look up, look above “Add a comment”
    The title was made explicitly so that people would know what it’s about.
    It stayed that way for a long time. It was so much fun until a lot of new people decided they liked it. Then we got trolls.
    They infiltrated our happy, safe place. It’s long gone. I admit, I gave up and left, long ago.
    Now, I’m hearing about a site on user voice for people to come and air their grievances, share their opinions and health problems, to avoid using up the game chat.
    I find it extremely difficult to see what has happened to our friendly place formerly known as the goose that laid the golden egg. 😢

    For the record. Wsw, you’re going leaps and bounds above what I’ve done, and so many of us appreciate it.
    I would never have started it but maybe would have recruited someone else. 😉😀🤗😂❤️

    WSW. You have gone above and beyond to try to put our group back together after a breach of trust.
    Thank you for all the hard work you’ve done. I know it comes from a loving soul. So many of us sincerely thank you. 🤗💗

    Oh, dear. Our golden goose really is dead.
    I came here to see if any of our original group were still here because I want to let them know I’m thinking of them during this health crisis.

    Anyways, I hope you’re all healthy and making the best of the situation.

    Trolls come and they go. Some are easier to recognize as trolls. Others take over the chat with their own agenda and fool kind people into thinking they’re friends.

    Over and out, again. Take care my friends. ❤️

    Epic ski day! Was happy with the tournament for the short time I could play yesterday morning.
    Took longer than normal to get into first place but i managed.
    Glad I had plans for the weekend. Looks like the tournament got kind of crazy. 🤪

    Sapphire, sorry if I wasn’t clear. I wasn’t sure you were looking at the right cloaked person. There were 3 of us cloaked in the top 3 spots. When I saw pn-icu, I was in second place at the time.
    It never occurred to me that the BC one would reveal me. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Couldn’t keep cloaked. Could never be a spy.
    How many are we? Anyone know? I’m pretty sure there are others cloaked.

    I woke up with only 10 minutes to get ready to play. Slow start but got in my groove.

    Won’t be able to play much passed this morning but wanted to try the super sync.

    Fun to see so many friends! 😀

    Anyone figure out how the brilliance points add up?

    I’ve had one worth as little as 18 points and as high as over 90.

    Opal! Wow! I’m watching you. Cause I can!

    Hubby’s still not home until later tonight. I’ve made it into second place in BC. That’s probably as high as I’ll go as I have lots of chores to catch up on today.

    Hahaha at the Laggin Dragon name, from one our fastest players with record high scores.

    After my comment about not feeling like the Land Shark title fit me last weekend, I suddenly couldn’t get Baby Shark do do do do do out of my head. 🤣 I don’t know which is worse, that or Mares eat oats. Lol!

    MZD, I sometimes go all week without playing but often play Friday morning to get ready for the tournament. I try to stop on a small puzzle with no spare words as I think it loads faster when I’m attempting to enter a sync.

    Doofus, that’s too bad. I’m hearing about lots of glitches since the update. Mine went pretty smoothly.

    Way to go everyone! Congrats to winners.

    I made 10,000, but more importantly, I got my first crown points. We’ll see if it shows up above my name in the tournament next week. Nobody’s showed this week in mine.

    Hope you feel better soon SS.

    I tested offline and still cannot play in the tournament. I can’t say I’m surprised that there are glitches after an update.

    I would be very disappointed if they allow offline playing again. Hope they fix that. I never had anyone pop in ahead of me in a tournament but I understand it was a thing slower players would do.

    Note- I first tried just going into airplane mode and was able to play. I had to go into settings to turn off wifi to be blocked from tournament. 🤔🤷🏼‍♀️

    I know nothing about bots but I know this is a very popular game, played by many. A lot of the people who play it have a lot more time to play than I do. I go weeks without playing much. Many are elderly and/or sickly. Some are even shut ins. I could see people like that racking up the points like this.
    I’m saddened by that fact. I also think that many found their way to this chat site. Probably many anonymously. Which is in part why I think it’s important to restore this chat site to what it was and can be again.

    Thanks for the update CK-P.

    I’m just looking at the brilliance points and am amazed at the high scores. The top scorer in BC has over 2 million points but is behind 93 people with higher! Some with almost 4 million.

    This is my second time around because I finished the game before PF made it endless. I wonder how many brilliance points I would have in total. I still wouldn’t be even close to these scores. Mind boggling. 😳

    Very impressive, Dragon. I’m not surprised. I think I went up against you in a short sprint during our 6 sync.

    Sorry, Opal. I won’t be able to keep up but wanted to be involved. Land Shark is feeling more like a guppy this weekend. Lol.

    C’mon people. If we can get past my little post asking if we can keep the sports chat down, when a few people took over our game chat during tournaments, why has this thing blown up out of control?
    My request was met with sports chat blowing up exponentially.
    I’m proud that nobody came back in response to this with long posts of prayers. Not one person said to “Suck it up” as the first person who complained about the sports talk was told. (Which wasn’t me) Nobody came back with anything like the long post, directed at me, headed with ***FOOTBALL*FOOTBALL*FOOTBALL***
    If my request was taken as mean spirited, that’s not on me as it wasn’t anything close to this attack on some of us.
    It was a simple request to keep it from taking over. Not once did I, or anyone else, ask anyone to stop all sports chat.
    I’ve always believed in ignoring trolls and they get bored and go away. Let’s quit feeding this.

    Hubby called just as I was getting ready for start last evening. Had to answer as he’s on his way outback skiing and won’t hear from him for several days.

    Ended up going to see the grands who live in our back field in the coach house. When the granddaughter calls to come over because she’s worried about me in the storm, with a tarp on my roof from the storm last weekend, I go. ❤️

    So, I’m all alone in a tournament. So far I’m in the lead and will go hard for the win of my first crown points.

    Congratulations on the syncess! Was it 5? Has everyone uncloaked? Lol.

    Still not sure about the brilliance points ranking.

    Thanks Shell 🇦🇺 ❤️ I’m good. ❤️

    Thank you all for the kind welcome back. You are truly amazing people who have a genuine care for each other, which in my humble opinion is key to a happy life.

    I lost my glasses in Texas and am still recovering from lack of sleep so I don’t expect to be much competition in the tournament but will try to sync tonight for the fun of it.

    MZD, I totally get the “out of it” feeling. I can’t possibly try to address each person who I want to address here, as it would be a mile long, so I’ve decided it’s best to just jump back in and move forward. Please know that I have personally prayed for each of you for different reasons. (It seems to be an accepted topic here so I’m in)

    I love the whole pay it forward theme here. I’m a firm believer in giving to others. ❤️

    As for medical subjects, I’m afraid I don’t think too much about it. I tend to bury my head in the sand and have some kind of mental block. I always assume the outcome will be what’s meant to be. Remember how the adults talked on Charlie Brown? Especially when it comes to my own stuff. It’s almost like I’m afraid that giving it thought gives it power. I know, sounds weird.

    As far as medical miracles go. Might I recommend “Dying To Be Me” by Anita Moorjani. A near death experience documented by doctors and endorsed by Dr. Wayne Dyer.

    I could go on but promised my post would not be a mile long. Hope to see you in the tournament.

    Funny side note, my spell check keeps thinking I want to say y’all. 😀

    I’ve been up since 1 am and feel half dead. Need sleep.

    Can barely even look at my phone screen.

    Hi y’all! Heading home from Texas tomorrow. I’ll miss the amazing people here. Everyone is so friendly. Back to Canada, eh.

    Hubby takes off for his back country ski trip Friday so I’m definitely going to be entering the tournament, sans crowns. 🙁

    I don’t know about y’all, but I’m terrible for forgetting to set up my puzzle ahead of time but I figured out a save. If I go into airplane mode, I can set up a puzzle before entering the tournament, after it’s started.

    Hope to meet up with some of y’all. 😃

    Hello good people! WSW is right. I’m visiting our neighbours to the south. Loving Texas and the people here.

    I’m not going to dwell on this anymore, I realized some people thought I was pointing a finger at them for the football chatter. I take full responsibility for my feelings. I should have just scrolled past, instead of trying to mediate.

    To be honest, it was literally a couple people who thought I was out of line and let me know it.
    I don’t remember who, except one post that started with ***FOOTBALL***FOOTBALL***FOOTBALL***
    That’s the one that made me tap out. It wasn’t even a regular here, I don’t think. I felt like someone would have spoken on my behalf. (Youngest child syndrome?) I now realize the error of my ways.

    I’m sorry if I haven’t seen all the post but want to touch base with Sapphire and TonyG. I’m not upset with either of you and want to be friends. I hope I haven’t ruined that. I obviously have inherited my mom’s sensitivity gene, especially that weekend in question.

    This is still my favourite chat group, I just wish it was on Facebook as it’s way easier to follow but I won’t leave here unless we all make the switch. Which I know isn’t going to happen.

    Happy tournament to everyone. Even though I won’t be able to remain in the top 3 spots, if hubby sleeps in tomorrow, I may try to sync at 7:05 PST. I think that’s 9:05 in Texas. I’ll use his phone as I have yet to receive my crowns, despite the fact that PF updated my app. 😩

    I started this chat group because a handful of us met on the cheating chat group and we realized we had some type of bond.

    I have referenced in prior posts that the name I gave it was kind of funny but at the time, I wanted it to be really clear as to the topic of conversation.

    I was ecstatic at how it bloomed into something so mutually beneficial that it became to so many folks. Let me say amazingly wonderful folks. ❤️

    When I felt like it was veering off topic (football) I didn’t say anything until I noticed that I wasn’t the only one not interested in the sport and I feared it would become divisive, as not everyone liked the same team or even the sport at all.
    After my request to keep football to a minimum, I was met with a handful of people who blew up the site, exponentially, with football chat.
    I’ll admit it hurt my feelings enough to leave until the team in question were out of the playoffs.

    I did talk privately to WSW about it and in her infinite wisdom, and kindness, she told me that it would end soon. She was right. I left the group for about a week but missed it terribly. I even talked to hubby and friends about the vast loss I felt.

    It’s clear there is no way to moderate this group but I still love it and had to get my say in.

    I love that we have a vast array of people from different parts of the world. Many probably don’t know but I’m from British Columbia, Canada. I’m currently visiting Texas and am in love with the State and the people here are amazing.

    I hesitate to ask (since the football request) but can we please, please, PLEASE get off politics. It’s always been mutually agreed to be a taboo topic here.

    Much love from me, Darby, aka Paddling Nana.
    Group hug. 🤗

    Thank you for the kindness, Sapphire. WSW told me to look for your comments about me.

    I’m still here, just travelling and have very scarce wifi.

    Just having lunch in a fabulous little “grocery” store in Austin. Their wifi works. I’m able to catch up a little. Not too much as hubby will not like me being on my phone too much. If I ignore him, he’ll turn his on and answer work emails. Lol.

    I do miss you all and think about you often. Our little golden goose is not so little anymore. It’s fantastic!

    Sending cyber hugs and love to you all. ❤️

    Silverstar, I know how you feel. I’m playing on hubby’s phone because he has crowns. I have nothing yet.

    Although I have no crowns, Pf did reduce my coin winnings to 1000, from 2000.

    I’m not sure if any of you have the ads on your app still but hubby’s does. Yesterday they were mostly glitchy, making me go out and back in to reset. This morning, we have no ads but the screen is kind of jerky, not smooth movements.
    I’ll take it!

    It’s been a crazy week here, weather wise.

    Sapphire, thinking of you in this storm.

    All I can say is my hummingbirds, so far, have survived the sub zero temperatures and crazy wind. It took switching out their feeders every half hour until Facebook exploded with makeshift warmers. I made a box with heater and it’s working.
    Grandkids have been here so it’s been a bit of a gong show around here.

    I imagine the bonus word count is different with a larger dictionary to work with. Like some versions on this game have.

    PaddlingNana(Canoe, not spanks) commented  · 

    Inks, you asked about max bonus words.

    If I have a 7 letter puzzle with an s or 2, I can get 40 + bonus words. That’s not a normal number, though. I also know that when I’m playing, I go for speed and completing the puzzle so I’m sure I’m missing some. I just accidentally found a new word yesterday that I had never seen. Problem is, I don’t remember it now.

    I remember them best with word association. When I have led, I know I have eld and del for example.

    When I’m not in tournament mode, I try to find more bonus words. I’ve only ever found one or two that have zero. I wasn’t convinced there were zero until after extensive searches through multiple dictionaries. It was a small puzzle with a very low score.

    Hubby had the crowns last week but when we won the tournament, nothing happened. Nor did he have the crown column.

    Katz, I do hope you get a Facebook account again. It’s so much more conducive to this kind of chat.

    If anyone is concerned about Facebook safety, you can set up an email account, like gmail or hotmail, separate from the one you use. I know a lot of people who alter their name, or make one up. Also, they ask for a phone number, I don’t put one in. You can also make up a birthday.

    On the subject of cars, in hindsight, I swear I married my first husband for his ‘66 Mustang. (Hmm... I wonder if that’s why the marriage lasted only 5 minutes. Insight)

    Wsw, that was a perfect explanation.

    I remember a handful of us met on the cheat forum. We were explaining to the people who were complaining about cheating that we could rack up that many points in a short time.
    I think we started realizing we had some kind of bond.

    We called them the “Whiners”.

    One day I mentioned that, in all fairness, we were on their forum. The title of the chat room was about cheaters.

    Someone, Shell? I think. Asked me a question about my upcoming canoe trip I was taking and said why don’t you answer it on a new forum.

    So I started this one, not knowing it would catch on, (or I would have put more thought into the title, lol)

    I went back to the cheat forum, and told them how to find me. At the beginning, we had to scroll way, way down to find it. Or do a search for the title. But find it, they did! The more we used it, the higher up on the list it became until we reached #1.

    Hi guys.

    I’ve started a Facebook group called Wordscapes Chat.

    The group we started here has grown so much it’s become very hard to follow.

    Facebook has a much easier format to follow and it’s easier to keep out the trolls. Plus there can be a place to refer people for instructions so Wordsmithwick doesn’t have to repost it all the time. (By the way, thanks for that Wsw, you rock)

    I know not everyone has a Facebook account but I know some do. Hope to see some of you there.

    We have 2 members from here already and would love to see it grow.

    Really? I just read a 5 paragraph short story about football, waiting for something I may be interested in. But nope, I had to read the entire thing only to discover that it was, in fact, all football. Hahaha!
    Thanks guys.
    Back to my tournaments.

    Thanks Katz. Appreciate the sentiment.

    See you in the tournament, Wsw.

    Wsw. I tried your name where you said but to no avail. Fighting for first place in my tournaments is a full time job right now. I spent last night and this morning getting hubby a big lead because he has the crowns and I don’t. I want to see what happens.

    Tony, it does seem like we have a lot of Seahawks fans here but it’s a few vocal ones. Thought everyone should know that before our influx of new folks in our chat group, we did have a member voice her dislike of football. It’s usually just a side note to a post.

    Mind you, this is coming from a “football widow”. Lol.

    Back to my tourneys. Good luck all!

    We just decided to make sure he wins.

    Jeff, that happened very briefly when I started the tournament. It didn’t last.

    Tony, I’m also talking about the bonus words. When I enter an eligible word that is not in the puzzle, it goes to the bonus word count, as well as the tournament score.

    My bonus words absolutely add to my tournament score. Also to my coin count.

    I have zero sign of any crowns. I’ve won my tournament several times in the past month.
    It’s a head scratcher for me. The win is only worth 1000 now. 🤔

    He’s on holidays this week and I’m enjoying him being home....for the most part. Lol!

    Praying and sending positive vibes to our friends who are battling health issues.

    Much appreciation for our much beloved nurses. You are awesome! Not to forget those who are caring for ailing parents (Charlie). You rock. My Mom has dementia and my dad is her main caregiver. I clean their house and do what I can.

    We may be taking the grandkids skiing one day this weekend. Out of cell range. I may try for Saturday morning sync and try to catch up later.

    Good sync luck to all! You’re awesome.

    I told the kids I would google it to see why Chris came back. All I could find was a list of 20 reasons why he didn’t move one night. Hahaha!
    Apparently it happens to the best of us.

    #20 on the list was to act surprised and say you’ll google it. Exactly what I did.

    Good sync tournament weekend again. I’m eager for a weekend where I will have time to actually compete.
    I was part of the first sync6 group and had to quit due to company. Ducked out of conversation during the end of the football game just to be in the 10,000 group. Curious how high my weekend score would be if I wasn’t constrained in time.

    Not sure when it will happen as weekends is my quality time with hubby. One more reason to get him to retire. Lol!

    I was lucky to find a little me time during football yesterday so I could be part of the 10,000 group. Makes me wonder how high I could have gone without such time restrictions.

    Wonderful fun. Thanks all 6syncers and everyone for a fun tournament.

    I may try to reach 10,000 today but the company spent the night and I don’t know how much time I have.

    I just peaked in and it looks like Emerald City is going to need an intervention after this weekend. Lol!

    Emerald City hasn’t stopped playing. While I ate and napped and did some chores, I got behind 1000 again. Made a good attempt at catching up when Dragon joined in. I had company show up and had to stop during an epic battle with Dragon. Back and forth. I would think I was being left in the dust and suddenly got the lead again, only to get passed again.
    I definitely got in with a fast group. I only wish I could play more.

    The final hour I had to ditch bloom and concentrate on just one. Got first place here and second in bloom.

    Hope to not mess up the start time this weekend.

    I’ve been playing since the total number of games was 4000. I could still replay the same games but wouldn’t get anything for it. I dumped the game, had to delete it from i cloud, so I could start over. Then they made it never ending.

    Hahaha WSW. I have a granddaughter, 9 and Grandson, 6. We know about those meltdowns. Sorry, not funny but maybe a little.

    Shell, sounds like a good time to be at your place. You’re braver than me. I never drink and comment from fear of putting my foot in my mouth. Not everyone gets my humour. It often ends with “It was a joke! I was only kidding! “
    Lucky my family get me. 😛

    Hoping to sync this weekend. I like the idea of 2 start times for those of us who have a hard time starting Friday night.

    Welcome Emerald City. I’m close by, just north of the border in the Fraser Valley. Small rural town.

    When you all changed your names it was confusing to me. I did want to join you but 1- everyone knew me as Paddling Nana. 2- Sapphire beat me to my birthstone name. 😉

    Haha, Shell. Glen is still one of
    The last words I find in a puzzle. Every time.

    Hubby is getting faster, so I’m not playing on 2 devices much anymore. Just when he’s sleeping in.

    When I do play on 2 devices, it’s easy because he has ads. I play mine during his ads. I put one in my lap while I play the other. 🤣

    Hope you travellers fare better than hubby yesterday. He missed his flight from St Louis and took him until 11:00 to get home.

    I would love to sync with some faster players. I’m in with someone fast but they can’t maintain it long. So I’m practicing patience that I’ve learned from you all. Not getting too far ahead and stopping when they stop.

    Thanks for the recognition of starting this chat but it’s you folks who make it great. Thank you!

    Sapphire, yes, Texans do love their bbq. We went on a Caribbean cruise out of Galveston and most of the passengers were Texans. We were amazed at how much meat they ate! Super excited to see Austin, San Antonio and El Paso.

    Katz, how exciting to have that memory of the Grand Canton. We’re getting ready by hiking up our local mountains. Can’t wait to sleep under the starts. The night sky is going to be amazing.

    Love hearing about everyone’s travels and plans.

    I have overnight company coming tomorrow so I won’t be able to join tournaments until Sunday morning.

    Happy travels everyone traveling.

    Lately we’ve been staying in British Columbia for our holidays but next year we start our bucket list.
    We’re doing a 2 week oar trip down the Grand Canyon. Northern Lights trip this winter.
    An unexpected Texas trip in January should be fun, it’s a work trip for hubby that I’m tagging along on.

    Opal, I’ve been playing Bloom this weekend also. I don’t want to get too far ahead. It’s interesting how my mentality is different when I’m playing with people I know.

    I hope the land shark you encountered isn’t named Ginger. That would mean we synced there.

    Good morning! (That’s what Shell named herself when she noticed I was playing)

    It’s hard to say who will win. It may depend on who can play more today.
    We’re busy today but I’m playing until hubby is up and ready, which could be a while.

    We’re chatting with our names in our tournament. I’ve done it before but nobody’s ever replied. Fun.

    Wsw. Hahaha. My grandson (5) can barely play a game long enough to let him win. My granddaughter (9) is smarter than me and would catch me and be insulted if I tried to let her win anymore. Used to be easier.

    Katz, when I first encountered ocean/canoe in a puzzle and realized they had the same letters, I was embarrassed that I never noticed it before.

    Funny you guys started talking about teenagers. Teenage is a puzzle word that I don’t see right away.

    Congratulations winners!

    Charlie, you remind me of my husband. He thinks he’s slower than he is. I think you’re speed has probably increased significantly since starting.

    I had zero interest in playing this weekend as we had a game night Saturday with friends who keep immaculate homes. Had to scrub the house white glove clean ( not that they cared).

    Accidentally entered Friday evening and decided to not care of my placement. (A huge personal achievement) By playing during breaks, I was in 4th place.
    We went for a birthday dinner last night and was very surprised nobody was playing. Next thing I know, I’m in first place with no competition. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Welcome back Shell. Good to hear from you.

    I slept in again. Missed the start time. Darn it!

    I’m pretty sure you’re entered in the tournament as soon as you open a puzzle, with the exception of the daily. That explains the zero scores. They didn’t finish the puzzle they started.

    Wsw, I have fast and slow times, too. Also, the puzzles can be a factor. I’m faster with the large puzzles with lots of bonus words. I seem to get runs of small puzzles with very few bonus words. That slows me down.

    Congratulations to all winners and close behinds.

    I had a crazy Sunday evening. I had both my games won. (bloom and this one) nobody was trying to come from behind. Hubby comes in from mowing and says he’s slipped to 4th place. He’s having a tough time, 3rd place is a bit faster. He handed it to me cause he knows I love a challenge.

    I made 3rd place but by this time, an hour and a half to go, I see first place in my sights. About 1200 behind. I’m almost there when 1st place wakes up and starts playing. No problem, I’m overtaking them. Then hubby’s phone gets glitchy. His has ads. I have to close
    the game and reopen it after every puzzle! I won by 30 coins! Whew! So much fun!

    I turned 56 last month. My 32 year old son has a 9 year old daughter and a 5 year old son.
    We’re blessed to have an acre with horses for neighbours and are almost finished building a carriage house on our property for our son & his kids to live in. (He’s separated from his wife) They lived with us for 3 1/2 years in a small 2 bedroom farmhouse. Great bonding time with the kids.

    I’m also fortunate to have both parents. Mom has dementia and Dad is her main caregiver. I clean their house but Dad does everything else.

    Great respect and admiration for those caring for their elderly parents. It’s a tough job.

    Hope to sync this weekend.

    I’ll be attempting to join the sync this time. So, it’s a later start time than the usual 7:05 PDT?
    I can work with that. Maybe easier with 11:05. No alarm required.

    Charlie, I imagine paddling a canoe is far easier than paddling one of my grandkids. My son, on the other hand... even though he’s 8 inches taller than me, there are time I could easily paddle him.

    Congratulations to the winners. I didn’t get to play this one. Too busy setting up my sister’s home decor shop for her big Christmas open house tomorrow. Another long day today.

    I fully intend on playing this weekend and trying to sync. Maybe I’ll try 2 devices as well.
    Even if I have to set an alarm to get all but one word entered and another alarm to start at the same time as you guys.

    Also, I had a frozen shoulder, physio therapy took care of it in a month. I was practically paralyzed before I sought help.

    Yes Charlie. “Adult” words are never in the puzzle. I’ve noticed they don’t allow slut but they accept orgy orgies, just to name a couple.
    Enjoy the grandchildren.

    Amy, I have 46,000. I enjoy seeing them go up. Don’t know why.

    Sapphire, I dropped my phone from the canoe in Wigeon Creek and gained back all my data on my new phone. It was in iCloud. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    WSW. Yes, I do chat through name change. I’ve yet to get a bite. I’ll keep trying.
    On Sunday I played casually and still overtook first place after they passed me while I slept. I tried letting them stay in first place but they never advanced. So I tried going just passed them a little. To be honest, I felt like I was teasing them with a cat and mouse game. It wasn’t fun.

    Sapphire, we do live in a beautiful place. That sunset last night was amazing.
    As much as I love BC, I would love to return to Maui. We spent two fabulous weeks there for our honeymoon a hundred years ago.

    I did end up playing yesterday. I even let myself fall into second place and not get more than 100 points in the lead but as soon as I passed the next player, they quit.

    Congratulations to other winners.

    Wow Laura! 1,000,000! I’m close to 500,000 brilliance points and have no clue what they’re good for. If I do the calculations, it averages about 46 per game. I have a feeling that if you know more bonus words, it’s higher.

    Welcome Amy. I’m glad someone understands my competitive nature. (I blame it on being a Virgo)

    So I started my tournament late and again, no competition. When this happens, I notice that if I don’t get too far ahead, I can get a few good races over the weekend. Mostly Sunday afternoon.

    We’re packing and shopping for our canoe trip so I should be available to go hard from time to time.

    Good luck, my peeps. 😎

    I’m having a family dinner today so someone may have a chance to pass me. I won’t get too far ahead. You guys have taught me to let others win sometimes. Maybe it will be humbling... or the Redhead Virgo will rear its ugly head and I’ll be compelled to win. It could go either way. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣

    I think my name is canoe queen at the moment.

    I was awake during the night and ended up sleeping until 8. Missed the start time.

    Good luck everyone. Have a great long weekend. (To those who have a long weekend)

    I’ll be looking for clear skies to hopefully catch the Northern Lights. Sapphire, we don’t have city lights but the lights from Chilliwack and Abbotsford are bright enough to affect our star view. Our neighbours are cows and horses.

    I’ll decide Saturday morning if I’ll join the tournament. It’s my birthday weekend and Hubby’s also. We may decide to just be chill and stay home and play, or be social, or go for a hike. It’s wide open at this point.

    We have a long weekend here. Labour Day. My mom always joked about me being born on Labour Day.🤣

    If you guys start Saturday morning, I may make another attempt. I’ll keep an eye on when you decide to start.

    I know so many people with ailing parents who need their help. My mom has dementia. We do as much as we can. My dad is doing everything for her. It’s actually very romantic to see. I don’t mean romantic like candles and flowers. I mean true, lifelong love.
    She calls me regularly to tell me there’s a stranger in the house. I ask her if I can talk to him. I say hi to my dad and then convince Mom it’s her husband of 63 years. 😪

    We have company coming this weekend. Won’t be in the tournament but will check in to see how you’re all doing.

    Good luck and enjoy your weekend!

    Hi Katz. You can add me to your welcoming committee.
    I heard someone say they can get up to 100 words in a puzzle. I don’t get near that. I’m with you guys, max 40ish in a big puzzle that allows 3 letter words and has an s.
    I also believe some people confuse brilliance points with word scores.
    One week I tried to see how many extra bonus words I could learn from the Scrabble app. So many words weren’t eligible. However, I did learn some new words. When there’s a double consonant, I find several words that end win a double consonant.

    Hubby is sharing my addiction. We both just spent(wasted) a couple hours trading off our phones. Keeping in first place on both of them. Time to face reality and exercise.

    Sapphire, spellcheck tried to change limbic to lambic. I had no idea it was a beer.

    Yes, I do play to win. As a Virgo, I have no choice in the matter. Lol.

    I do like competition but am not getting any this tournament. They all quit playing with a few hundred points. I usually like to get several thousand to prevent snipers.

    Sadly, I haven’t been fortunate enough to be up against other fast players, like you guys.

    I still want to see Jamez again, the only one who beat me head to head, on Hubby’s glitchy phone. I would love to encounter him on my own phone.

    Glad a couple of you got in the same tournament. Means it can be done.

    I finished my final word when my timer went off. Had the word ready and let go of the final letter right when my timer went off.
    You guys look right away? I go hard until I’m in the lead for a while before I stop to look.
    Second place stopped at 245, as soon as I got a distance ahead.
    Sadly, no familiar names.
    Oh, mine said master, also. It said Master Level 2404. I was at level 8405, so master starts at 6000. That’s also when they start recycling the puzzles.
    Good luck on your tournaments everyone!

    Wordsmithwick, I think it was you who asked if I had 2 devices. It depends on if hubby is playing. He’s improved a lot but doesn’t always play the tournaments. We probably both will play this weekend as it’s the middle of our holidays.

    I can’t fathom 2000 per hour. I think my average is about 500/hour. I definitely go on speed streaks. I’ve never timed myself at my fastest but I’m guessing it wouldn’t come near 1000.

    I find the scores vary greatly depending on start time.
    No matter when I start, I play hard for a couple hours or so. I usually outlast people. When I pull ahead, they usually stop playing.
    If I start at the beginning of a tournament, there can be several epic battles over the weekend, bringing the scores much higher.
    When I start Saturday, there seems to be far less competition.
    I’m usually just too busy to start Friday. I rarely get over 5000.
    It’s much higher if we’re traveling and I’m killing time.

    Sorry Wombat. Ended up with company for the weekend. A friend from Nelson came on his way through to Vancouver.
    I waited for hubby to get up yesterday morning so we could try to sync our games. I’m accidentally finished my puzzle without him. I didn’t even notice I was on my last word. 🙄
    We’ll try again next weekend.

    Shell, I would be excited about your cruise, too. I’m excited about Whistler next week with the grandkids.

    Shell, here in BC, 16 degrees means shorts and tank top weather. Lol!
    My cousins just got home from a month in Australia. Can’t wait to see them to hear all about it.
    We’re just happy we have no smoky skies this summer. While it’s kind of cool having a red sun all day, it got rather tiring.

    After a week of family here, we’re looking forward to a relaxing weekend and will both be entertaining the tournament.

    Shell, I did the same thing yesterday. And we just talked about it last week. I have been super distracted with 30 family members here. After entering a bunch of words, I looked up at my puzzle and see that I was almost done and hadn’t even hit the first star.

    We just came off our provincial holiday, B. C. Day. Couldn’t have been a better weekend for our famjam.

    Anyone else get really crappy daily gifts? In 4 days last week I got a combined total of 50!

    Hope you all had a great weekend.
    I had a great competition Saturday morning. Too bad Brook stopped playing when I had a couple fast, high scoring games.

    We were too busy to try simultaneous start. Hubby started Sunday morning. He had no competition until the last hour, which worked out fine as we were super busy. It was his first time not asking for help. He won all on his own.

    I also find all the words before looking at the puzzle. Have made the mistake of starting the daily one and look up to see I haven’t caught a single butterfly. Lol!

    Happy belated anniversary, Shell.

    Ellen, I agree, we live in a beautiful part of the world. Glad it wasn’t smoky like the last couple summers.

    Wordsmith, your chat via name change is hilarious.

    Cheryl, the name thing happened to me as well. To stop it, I disconnected from Facebook and shut down and restarted my phone.

    I’ll be playing in the tournament this weekend. But not the following weekend. We’re having our first family reunion in almost 30 years. About 35 -40 of my parents descendants. All coming to our house. Campers and tents will start arriving Thursday night.

    Congratulations on your 10,000, Shell! I’ve been just doing the daily puzzles. Sitting at level 7777 ‘cause it’s a cool number. 😂

    I’ve learned a couple new words here. Now if I can just remember them. Mem is new to me.
    It’s the ones that never show up in the puzzles I like to find. By now I know all the ones that show up in the puzzles.

    Bar Burner Bbq is an annual event that the farm down the street from us started 5 years ago when they built their farm store. 21 very serious competitors come from all over to show their talents. Lots of family activities. Bands, samples, beer gardens. We get loads of company. The winner goes on to invitational competitions.

    I can vouch for the syncing. After a few attempts, I managed to play with 2 people from our chat group. It was a matter of planning and executing.

    Also, I can rack up way more than 500 per hour and have encountered others almost as fast as me. Without any hints or aids.

    I did pay the 4 bucks to remove ads but can still come in first place on hubby’s phone. He refuses to pay for ad removal.

    Anonymous, I win every tournament I want to win. I don’t buy coins. In fact, I don’t use the free ones. I’ve accumulated almost 50,000 of them. I find the bees annoying. Bees and hints slow my game down. I did pay the 4 bucks to have no ads but my husband didn’t and I win on his phone, with ads also. I just find them bothersome.
    I have a life, go for long walks along the river or up the mountain. Visit friends and family but my rest time is spent on the game and I accumulate points quickly. I’ve been playing a long time. After a while the words just jump out at you.
    I find it funny all the people who cry cheater or we have no life. They just can’t fathom players faster than others. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Wordsmithwick. I couldn’t agree more. Like I said, best 3.99 I ever spent. I’m trying to convince hubby to get rid of his ads.
    When I play on his phone, with ads, I usually play on mine during the ads. Playing 2 games at once. It must look comical.

    Laura Christina, I’m curious about the scores as well. I can get 5-600 points in an hour. More if I’m “On fire” with high scoring words.

    Tae. You can get far more in each puzzle if you get all the bonus words. Not just the ones that fit into the puzzle. Some puzzles have many, many bonus words. If a person knows them all and has fast fingers, we can get way more than the numbers you’re talking about.

    Being fast does not equate cheating. It would take me longer to look at words on another screen than it takes me to enter the words as fast as I can get them from my brain to my fingers. I have very fast thinking and fast fingers.
    I’ve only encountered one person who was faster than me, playing at the same time and I was playing on my husband’s phone that was old and glitchy. I would love to encounter jamez again, with my own phone.
    Just because people are fast players, doesn’t mean they’re cheating!
    The cheat sights are for new people who are stuck at a level and want to move on to the next game.

    To be fair to the whiners, we’re on their forum. I suggest we start a new thread. Maybe call it something like “game chat”. I’ve looked at other forums and there’s nothing like what we’re doing here.

    I find the same complaints over and over to be boring and redundant. I met someone faster than me on a tournament once. Was using hubby’s glitchy phone and I got beat. I’ll admit, my pride was bruised. Yes, I blame the glitchy phone but never accused my opponent of cheating. I would love to encounter him on my own phone.

    I’m not a fan of intentionally going off line to come in at the end. I call them snipers. They can’t win head to head. Not cheating but not sportsmanlike. However, a lot of people do play to kill time while traveling. I’m one of them.

    Anybody with me?

    I understand the doubt about eld and del and orang. There are some pretty goofy ideas on this forum but I’m one of the sane, somewhat normal people. 😉
    I could list other words I’ve discovered by misplaced fingers, or starting a word and stopping short of a word, only to see it go into the bonus words.
    I’m sure you’ve found the “adult” words that are never in the puzzle but adds to your bonus. Orgy. Orgies. Porn. Porno. They’re all there. 😂
    Thanks for confirming my odd word finds. No hard feelings about doubting them. 😊
    Good luck on the tournament this weekend. I may have to sit this one out. Barn Burner BBQ happens this weekend, just down the road from us. Lots of friends will be stopping by.

    I wanted to start at same
    time as hubby. Only problem with that is, I would be playing against myself if we did end up in the same tournament. I often help him along if he needs it. Yesterday I was playing both phones at the same time. Still gaining distance on both. Lol!
    Yes, I do have a life, but weekends, during my breaks from gardening and activities, I dedicate my time to my game.
    I’ve been fortunate to never have a sniper come in at the end with more points than
    me but I understand it happens.
    For the life of me I can’t understand why fast players, like myself and other in this forum, are constantly being accused of cheating. Some of us just see the words immediately and are speedy at getting them all in. Bonus words can really top up your score.
    Did you know how many words you can form from lied? Especially if 3 letter words are allowed.

    The page is beginning to be a network of folks sharing their weekend results, thoughts and questions.
    Right now it’s just me and a few others.
    I would love to see my fellow support group come on over.

    One hour, 838 points. I think I can do better. Never timed myself before.
    Again, lots of players with no names this week.

    It’s possible that people run out of games to play, thus not getting any points Sunday.
    Also, Easter weekend I was in first place until Sunday when I had to cook dinner for the family. Even though I knew I wouldn’t win first place, I still came in second.

    I only wish I could post a video of me playing. I’m very fast and I often encounter other players who are fast also.
    The game uses the same groups of letters over and over. Example LIED has many words. Throw in an S and there’s a plethora of words.
    The tournaments are starting all weekend. 50 players who all start playing around the same time.
    I agree that using an outside source for finding words is a big drag and huge waste of time.
    Have fun. Be happy.

    Why is it so hard for some folks to accept there are players faster than them? “They must be cheaters”.
    Firstly. If you play a puzzle you’ve already beat, you don’t get any points towards the tournament.
    Secondly. We live in British Columbia. If we’re traveling, we go in and out of cell range going through the mountains and I play a lot. I don’t know how that’s cheating. I play on line when I’m home and still usually get first place.
    I’ve only lost to one player faster than me. Jamez. I’ll never forget it. I was pretty bugged by it. Frustrated that my phone was glitchy. But I didn’t think the player cheated. 🙄

    Hi Manco. Sorry, my bad. I should have indicated it was Sari who said anyone over 3000 is using an app. Which is actually silly, considering an app would only slow down a fast player.
    FYI. I’m paddlingnana. I’ve seen Nana. Different player.

    I take offence at being called a cheater. I play most every weekend and win most every weekend. The 2 times I didn’t win was because I came across a player faster than I am. I get well over 3000 points easy and I often don’t start until Saturday morning. I won’t win this weekend because I’m preparing Easter dinner for 18 people yet I’m still over 5000 points without playing a lot.
    It takes me way longer to look up words in an app. than to just play.
    Happy Easter!

    Before the game can advance, you must finish the puzzle, including any bonus words with coins in the letter spaces. You get the coins added to your bank.
    Also, some of the screen pics can be a little difficult to see where you’re missing a word.
    Good luck on the tournament this weekend. 😀

    FYI. If you use Facebook, Wordscapes has a page. Some people post their puzzle when they’re stuck and others help. If I happen to be in Facebook, I help right away. It’s great if you haven’t got enough points for your free clue.
