    Free puppies and kittens. And Energy drinks. For the players, NOT the puppies and kittens. Now that I have your attention, only two days til Tournament Time. It’s not too late to leave that team that doesn’t play, chat or give helps. Or if you’re just looking for a change of scenery, that works, too. Check out CleanSlate and make it your new WS home. We mix a pinch of competition with a pinch of compassion to create the perfect team. We kick nonactives, but give three strikes first. Our tournament minimum is 1500, but if you let us know in advance the minimum is waived. We know people have real lives, too. We’re a chatty family, but have some quiet members, too. We ask folks to check into chat within 24 hours and preferably on arrival. Then at least weekly to tell us status for the Tournament and learn start time. We have more than 30 mill brill at fewer than 50 members, so pop in and take up one of our lonely, empty roster spots. If you’re a small team and interested in joining a great team, reach out to me here or find my post on the Wordscapes page/subreddit at Reddit.com. This weekend we are having a Heroes v. Villains Intramural contest. Come join the fun and CleanSlate. *No puppies, kittens or energy drinks were harmed during the creation of this announcement. Inky 😉

    Ok, I’m gonna be honest. This recruiting thing every week bites the big one. I’m gonna try something different: team looking for smaller team. That’s right, are you a small team that has struggled to recruit or that isn’t looking forward to recruiting? Why not think about merging. I’m from CleanSlate. We’re competitive enough to be on the leaderboard with the Big Dawgs, but we have room for up to 15 people. We kick inactives every week, but you get three strikes. We have a tournament minimum, but it’s waived in advance for RL. We ask people to introduce themselves when they join and learn a bit about the team. We are a very chatty, friendly team, but we have quiet types, too, who check in weekly for tournament start times and to tell us status for the weekend. We’re a pretty democratic team and, frankly, we’d be formidable with a full roster. Interested? Contact me here or on Reddit. You can find me all over the Wordscapes page. C’mon, let’s beat this recruiting thang together. Check out CleanSlate and maybe make it your new home. Inky

    It’s that time of the week again. Tuesday. And CleanSlate is looking for a few players to round out our roster. We do kick inactives, which is why we’re still looking. You’ve seen my earlier posts with all the dirty details about this fun, chatty, competitive team. This is just a shout out to players looking for a new team...or thinking about looking for a new team. Check out CleanSlate and make yourself at home. We’ll leave a light on for you.

    TeamCleanSlate shuffled the roster again after this week’s tournament. A few folks were not a good fit, so we have openings for a few strong players. We have a tournament minimum but Real Life allowed of you let us know ahead of time. We’re a chatty, friendly team that wins. Even though we are not at 50 players yet our team BP is high enough to put us with the Big Dawg teams. Woof. Check us out if you’re looking for a fun, competitive team with a heart. CleanSlate.

    It was bound to happen...
    I had to designate five players on assignment so we have more space on our active roster at Team CleanSlate. We're a competitive team and in the major leagues even though we are not a full roster yet. We have a 1500 point tournament minimum, but it's not mandatory to accommodate real life shenanigans outside the stadium. You must check into chat when you arrive at the ballpark and then at least weekly, especially before T-time to get start time and share your status for the weekend. We are a close, chatty team that gives/get helps and shares tips with the rookies. The coach seeks player opinions, then usually makes a democratic decision. Are you an established star being taken advantage of by your current team? Check out CleanSlate. A rookie just up from the minors? Check out CleanSlate. A group of up to 12 players looking for a new home field? Message me here with questions. Help us to get to the Wordscapes World Series. Everyone wants to make it to The Show. Tell 'em Coach Inky sent you.

    Thinking of changing teams? Worried about what’s waiting for you out there? Make the jump and land at CleanSlate. We’re a newish team with room to grow. Bring your friends if you’re the only players holding down the fort every weekend. Small team struggling to recruit? We might have room. Message me here. We’re a chatty, competitive family that leaves room for RL. There’s a minimum for weekends, but it’s not mandatory. Checking into chat when you arrive is mandatory. That’s CleanSlate...c’mon, you know you wanna jump 😉Inky

    Pssst. Hey you. Yes you there on the farm team. Tired of waiting for your turn in the Big Show? Make your way to a team that treats all its team members like Major League Players. CleanSlate rhymes with home plate. Hit a grand slam and head on over. Tell em Coach Inky sent you. 😀

    Ok I don’t know how folks build more than one team. CleanSlate is still looking for some players. We are a great balance between casual fun and serious play. Friendly, chatty family full of opinions and helps. We especially need overseas from North America peeps. We kinda shut down in the wee hours EST So Europe, UK, Oz, NZ, etc. C’mon down and check out CleanSlate. Tell em Inky sent you :-)

    Nancy, I’ve dropped the BP requirement to 5000. Please tell your teamies to let us know you sent them just so we know they were on ur team. I think it’s smart for you to wait and I will def hold a spot for you. Will check out ur roster to get names Just so I know. Thanks and looking forward to meeting all of you! You might have to do the name with just a capital C and S when you search: CleanSlate all run together. Search function is touchy 😝

    Hey Daisy, think about joining us at CleanSlate. We’re a mighty dozen with nearly 15 million in BP who’s used to winning tournaments, but we don’t have pesky minimums for tournaments. We’re a chatty family that gives lots of helps and tips. And we’d have room for you and still space to grow. Think about it😀 Inky at CleanSlate

    WizeOwlz! Wish I met you fifteen super players before now. We dozen just broke off from PNG, undeniably #1 team, and sound compatible in the chatty, helpful family department. But I like being a new leader 😀Looking forward to meeting you in a tourney while you’re still small and mighty, like us 😜Inky, at CleanSlate

    Nancy, read your posts. We are CleanSlate, a new team as of yesterday, a breakaway team from the number 1 team. We have serious players and casual players, but nearly everyone gives lots of helps and chats about the game and other things. If your players are interested in learning more about the game and are mostly enthusiastic we are still small enough that we can take all of you. I will run it past my team and see what they think. We do NOT have a minimum for tournaments yet, but do expect people to at least play. I will get back to you here if you’re still looking. Inky

    Coach Inky, here. Our dugout is still missing you. We’re a few players short of a superstar team. We’re a chatty bunch that loves to give helps and tips. Room for more quiet players, too. On a farm team? Why not jump to the big leagues? In the big leagues, but on a team that forfeits most weekends? Give CleanSlate a shot and help us go to the World Series of Wordscapes 😜

    Hello! CleanSlate is a spanking new team that just broke away from a top team, the top team actually. We have space for large groups if you’re enthusiastic! We have no minimum score for tournaments, are chatty and helpful. Quiet types welcome, too, we just ask you to check in weekly, give helps a couple times a week, and play tournaments. Every point counts in our book. Questions? Respond here😀 Inky

We have a tournament minimum but it’s waived for real life if you let us know. Check into chat when you join, then at least weekly. Especially before tournaments to get start-time and let us know status for the weekend. We like to keep membership below fifty, but we have enough team BP to run with the Big Dawgs, Woof.

    Just a reminder, especially to folks like Nana and retRN, CleanSlate is a new team this week with plenty of growing room. We are a friendly, chatty team that gives a lot of help, but is a good fit for quiet types, too. We want to achieve a balance between competitive play and stress-free play. Just check in weekly, play in tournaments, and do a few helps each week. Easy-peasy. We have a great leader (lol, me) and fantastic teamies. Come join us! Inky from CleanSlate 😀

    Hi SilverStar I just saw your post about team leader boards. If you don’t want to wait for PF there’s a group on FB Messenger of about a dozen teams and growing that are trying to do a leader board and coordinate syncs. They had messaged PF too, to no avail. They are doing a sync this coming weekend with PNG, WhamJam, Juggernaut, and a few others. You can find them on FB at the WORDSCAPES Chat FB group. The one with about 260 members. Look for a post by a guy named Rakesh (Ricky) of Buttheadz.

    Hey El Chuckles, hope you find me. Once I get a good nights sleep I will probably start my own SMALL team and look for peeps who want to just play, chat some. Not worry about being top team per se. You know the drill. Hope you join us. Will post here to recruit.

    Tippytoes, I consider myself on the verge of being a great player, mostly because I don’t have a lot of hours to play during tourneys. But my max has been 1,100 words in an hour. On the 1218 build amnesia and chamois had at least 70 score for bonus words. There’s a short word without an S I’m trying to remember that has a big score too. Will post if I come across it again. Our team has players who easily hit 20,000 every week and two who have hit in the 30,000s. One of our players even has a demo on YouTube showing how fast she is in real-time (I think it’s still there). The highest score I’ve seen was a player on WPI who broke 40,000. Hope some of that helps!

    Hello, Inky here. Since it doesn’t appear that PF is gonna do something like this very soon, Rakesh aka Ricky from team buttheadz is putting together a working group of reps from WS’s top teams. So far players from buttheadz, Crown Holders, JUGGERNAUT, PNG, Team Mutiny, WhamJam, and WPI have had a few chats with Ricky to gauge interest in coordinating syncs between top teams and possibly creating a periodic leader board.
    1. We’re in planning stages. Looking for reps from teams with 20 million plus BPs or high scoring teams that have scored at least 275,000 points at least 2 times in tourneys.
    2. We’ve started a list of teams we know with at least 20 million BP but list is FAR from complete.
    3. Interested in being a rep on /Rakesh’s/Ricky’s working group? Have questions? Want to brainstorm? Go to the Wordscapes Chat Facebook Page and look for a 3-day old post by Rakesh Sadarangani talking about some teams leaving others in the dust. Respond there or just message Rakesh/Ricky via Messenger.
    4. Want your team added to the list-in-progress of teams with more than 20 million BPs? Try this link: https://www.reddit.com/r/wordscapes/comments/ht11a8/wordscapes_tourney_leaderboard/

    If the link doesn’t work, head over to Reddit online or the App and search for the WORDSCAPES community.
    Hope to hear from y’all soon.

    JANNI, the Wednesday tournament is a random 24-hour mid-week tournament. I had it about a month ago. It appears users are selected randomly. There also is a midweek tourney that lets you play for cool avatar upgrades. Maybe you got that one. Good luck!

Then click on the SUPPORT button in middle of pop-up screen. When you click that you will get a screen that says Feedback. There is a link that says Contact Us. Click that and send them the info you posted below. Good Luck!

    HI ABBY, do you mean to say “hey gang my dog is sick, please send up prayers and good thoughts? Probably. But not to a specific diety. There are a lot of ppl on the team and not everyone shares the same views. Most people don’t care, but it bothers others so to be respectful, id limit it to the occasional wish me the best /say a prayer because_______ thing.

    Juggernaut Update: Mugsy is leader for now, but he’s not aware of that, lol. He’s not currently logged on. When we created a few dummy teams, if the leader left, leader went to second person who had joined the team. That did not happen tonight. WS stepped down and left and Mugsy was designated leader. If Mugsy’s fine with that, so am I. I’m pretty sure he and I have similar game philosophies. We will sort it out later. Thanks for your patience. :-)

    Hi fellow WS fans. I’m gonna say a few words about the NEW Juggernaut team. I know many people are disgruntled but I cannot change that. It’s unfortunate, but I can only move forward and ask for people to be a little patient, if they will. I’m expecting an official transfer of leadership from WS later tonight because my schedule is nuts today, but I wanted to post something because ppl have questions. 1. I’m laid back. No 24/7 monitoring by me. 2. I will provide an email addy later (somehow) so ppl can contact me with questions or concerns and so chat doesn’t fill up with messages. 3. Having said that, I have 1 simple rule of thumb: NoPoliticsNoReligion/NoDrama/
    NoExceptions. I want Juggernaut to be a fun escape full of friendly competition. Team members were great at cheering each other on and chatting about general pleasantries (locations, family, pets, jobs, drink recipes lol). I want that to continue. It’s a fantastic group of people and it’s a GAME. There are other places for potentially divisive comments. Let’s kick butt, have fun, and enjoy each other’s company. 4. I understand some players have already started another team(s) and I say YAY to that. It will be great fun and competition. But I’d also like to ask folks to give Juggernaut a tournament or 2 to settle in. I know we will do good things together going forward. 5. Special thanks to WS for doing all the hard work and pulling together this phenomenal group of players *clapclapclap* That’s it for now folks, I gotta waddle, but will post again later with that email addy. Thanks for your time.

    Ok folks, we’ve been playing around with the team settings and have made Juggernaut an open team for now. It appears folks who could not chat in Juggernaut can now chat since we’ve made it an open team. So please rejoin Juggernaut and let’s roll!

    Hi gang! I’ve been down and out and not in the chat site much. Hope all are doing well with social-distancing. More time for WS :-). I had chance to get into a tournament last night around 9:40 and something weird happened after midnight. I think it explains why some ppl on here are still whining about CHEATERS. My tourney had low scores and I played for a bit and shot to # 1 with less than 1500 points. But after midnight, two players dropped in: one with 8000 plus points and one with 2500 plus points. They WERE NOT in the tournament earlier. And I KNEW the 8000 point player. It is Opal who used to post here. I checked with her and she was playing in a diff tourney with the other player and they started playing Friday evening right after tournaments started. By this afternoon I was in 13 place and the 12 players ahead of me have all migrated from Opal’s current tournament. They still show up in her tournament and their scores there match their scores in my tournament. There’s no way I can catch up so I won’t get a good crown this weekend, lol. I can’t believe Opal and I actually know each other; otherwise I would have thought those 12 ppl ahead of me were massive cheaters.

    PS DRAGON, that Jan 12 comment saying I’m past 20,000 is a typo. I only scored 6,000 or so in that tourney, maybe 7000 by end. So I must have meant I was over 2,000 NOT 20,000. Good gawd my eyes would fall out of my head playing that long, because my speed is not near the likes of you, Charlie, Cheryl, and Opal. I can keep up in bursts, but then fade.

    Aw DRAGON et al. Didn’t know you’d all miss me :-). I didn’t fall into the FB abyss, I fell into the depression abyss. I disconnected from FB pretty much, too. Alas I did indeed miss the tourney. I was not IVANKA, nor GRANNY, nor ?. And I have never ever scored above 15,000 let alone 20,000. I’ve synced twice and did miserably both times as far as scoring, but had a blast chatting so I would have been near the bottom with WSW if I had synced. So without me, what was final, syncsational Talley?

    Wow, I’m glad everyone felt safe enough here to finally let go of the things that were bothering them about this Chat site. AMY, I’m really sorry to see you go. Maybe we should start over with a clean slate? People who want to talk more in depth or touch on taboo topic(s) can post in Facebook. Save this site for game chat and lite banter? I really think as long as no one is berating others’ teams that some sports talk is ok. We’re all competitive, after all. TONY, you’ve been super quiet; I hope you haven’t changed your mind about staying. You know, you don’t have to read posts that aren’t game-related if that’s all you want to take from this site: game chat and sync times. I don’t think anyone is testing us later :-) I feel like I’ve made good friends here and as in real-life sometimes there are bumpy exchanges. It’s even harder to read people through text. I plan on giving everyone the benefit of the doubt unless it’s a testy troll. Glad to see you back EC, and see you chatty again Sapphire and Shell. Thanks for baring you’re souls, as someone else said. Now I’m off to let Cheryl and Ruffian catch-up and overrun me, grrrrrr ;-)

    So basically for ranking purposes, your new brilliance score is just what you play over a week. They’re not ranking people by their overall brilliance score on our puzzle pages since everyone is on different levels.

    WOW, has anyone else just gotten the little 1-2-3 in a circle in your lower right puzzle screen? If you click on it, it goes to a page that ranks every player for a week; with this week as two days so far. Also ranks players over time. The scores are outrageous! The #1 player for the two days of this week so far has 93,874 points so far, as their brilliance. That’s an incredible amount of playing for two dang days. They also rank you by your state (me, Maryland) and rank you against “your friends.” You have to link to your friends via Facebook to create your friends list. I will post screenshots on WSW’s WORDSCAPES FB page...

    MAREZY, was it you who was asking what level folks are on? I usually blow through my coins during tournaments to be speedy, so my coins are always near zero Sunday night and I rebuild during the week if I can. As for level, I’m on 26,866. No sight of an end yet, but I’d have to say I only see a handful of new words, and often the puzzles are repeated in identical format, as in they don’t even jumble up the regular words sometimes.

    TONY, I can’t tell, I hope you’ve decided to stay. You always say the right things at the right time. You’re a sweetheart. WSW, did you say there’s a Riverwalk in Austin, too? I’ve been to San Antonio a few times, but Austin only once before. And my nephew’s getting ready to move there! You can respond privately or on FB :-)

    The unsyncable MSW! So good to hear you’re feeling better and Bob is having a better day. You will find the perfect place in Nashville, and like you said, you have til July. Plenty of time. As the mother of sons, I hope your daughter has a little boy. I think they are easier on their Moms than daughters are...at least until the daughters are moms, too. TONY, you’re waxing poetic. Sounds like syncing was an otherworldly experience for you. WSW took good care of me in our sync and let me win :-) I tend to play a few hours overnight Friday into Saturday, then folks try to catch up. When I check back in Sunday I can tell if someone is trying to overtake me and play additional time, if so. Gives me Saturday’s for the real world.

    More on Gens: the kids after Millenials are called Gen Z (Millenials are also known as Gen Y). Some marketer recently started calling kids born since 2011 (up to 2025) Generation Alpha. All about the Benjamins and disposable income apparently.

    ROFL at “OK BOOMER!” My sons said it to both of us recently. Actually oldest said it in his last convo to my hub right before hub’s surgery, so my son kept checking in to see how surgery was going because he said he “didn’t want his last words to his dad to be ‘ok, Boomer.’” The 24-32 year-olds are Millenials, btw. I think they would call the kids AFTER them the Selfie Generation.

    Oh my. Lots of posts to read. Did I mention I had a head injury that rattled my memory? Ok, dang it, I’m just an old Boomer (TONY) and have already forgotten who posted what, so apologies in advance if I leave someone out or mix folks up. OPAL, goodness I hope your situation works out, too. Wouldn’t wish this on anyone. MANCO, TONY, WSW, OTHERS: thanks for the prayers. I’ll take em all. TONY, I think I might be a little younger than you (58) though I’m on Medicare due to my disability. Hubby and I have only been married 30 years. We started kinda late, though. Kids at 33 and 35, after my accident. I knew as soon as one doctor said “don’t get pregnant; you’re body can’t handle it” that I’d get pregnant. And did, 5 months after the accident. Murphy is our middle name. A good neighbor at the time said I appeared to get pregnant right after surgeries slowed me down, lol.

    Hey ALL, I went to the first cheating page on this site, but didn’t see person y’all were talking about. However, there was a lot of whining about people suddenly swooping in at last minute with big scores, and lots of folks admitted they put their devices in airplane mode or go offline (esp IPad users), then de cloak at last minute. Can we do that on our phones? Does that work still?

    PS, re syncing watches/time etc. I checked out the Time.is site Friday night when I unsuccessfully tried to sync and noticed at top of page it said how close my device was to the Time.is time. According to them, I was synced because my iPhone clock was only .04 seconds off. If folks are worried about time matching up, go to Time.Is and see how close you are to the time they say it is.

    Howdy-Doody folks! Did I just age myself? Been a buggy couple of days home with the recuperating other half. Dogs go to vet tomorrow which is always traumatic for one of them and a half-day event. I am SO ready for weekend T (not to be confused with tea) lol.
    ALL: hope to sync Friday night. I don’t usually start Friday night but did last week. I didn’t notice the lower scoring wins in later Ts til someone here mentioned it. Been my experience, too.
    WSW, great chatting with you last Friday, maybe this Friday it will actually be via a Sync, ha.
    TONY: thanks so much for asking about fam. Our youngest son was here last week to walk dogs, etc. and our oldest (who was laid off after Thanksgiving) is here this week to help. I can’t do some chores or walk the dogs thanks to my gimpy legs. I’ve gotten a kick out of spending extended time with my young adult sons. They’re friends now, too, not just kidlet’s. As for how doing, hub had some pain this AM, but has been doing well. HOWEVER, in keeping with my family’s contentious relationships with our health (it’s always SOMETHING), his primary doc called today to set up a CT Scan for the golf-ball sized mass in his chest, something Hopkins doc’s neglected to say they found in his pre-op tests. On to yet another health adventure.
    WSW and others, ok what’s this dang cheating site you’re talking about? Is it another page on this site or someplace entirely different. I wanna read the posts, too Waaaaaaaaaa (e-tantrum) ROFL

    Well, kind of a boring T. Won easily with 7,000 ish points. Second place was 4600 points. Named White Fang. We started out sprinting Friday night so I was excited. Good thing: that hospital chair was so stinking uncomfortable. I blew Fang out of water since I was awake most of the night, lol.
    TONY, are you in mourning? Think it was meant to be SF this year. Mostert was a steamroller.
    REDANTT: you said you’re close to 1 million letters. Is that the Brilliance score? I thought that score was a combo of speed and time and letters. If not Brilliance, where does it show your total letters used? What level are you on?

    TONY, YOU hit the nail in the head, man. Yup, it’s easier to vent to an online, sort of anonymous group because you get it out there, but don’t have to deal with all the baggage of venting to someone closer, who’s in the sinking ship with you and paddling just as hard, lol. Thanks all for being a distraction last night. I PROMISE never to type another message as long as that one.

    SYNC QUESTION: I know I’m supposed to set it up so I’ve solved all but the last word in my puzzle, but do I fill in all but the last LETTER of that word? So I’m just adding one letter when the clock strikes 7:35P?

    Oh my...I’m relaxing at home tonight before returning to the hospital in the AM and spending the night there. So...IM HOPING TO TRY TO SYNC for the 7:35 PST tournament since I will just be on a cot at the hospital and hubby will likely be snoozing. So excited.
    Good news: nephew going to be ok, just in a lot of pain and sleeping a lot from painkillers. Great news: after a really rough time post-op, hubby is doing PHENOMENALLY. Docs were shocked at how well he got around this afternoon. And no painkillers except Tylenol. Frankly that floors me because he’s the kind of guy who acts like a sore throat is fatal LOL.
    EVERYONE: thanks so much for the prayers and thoughts. I do appreciate them and they appear to be working :)
    AMY & WSW: your exchange was so reasonable and grown-up it nearly made me cry. I love the kindness that prevails here. BTW, my biz cards give me the title: Grammar Goddess. I try not to be annoying when I, um, suggest an “edit.”
    TONY, I had to pause and think when I saw your post about pacific and eastern tournament times. I was so excited when I saw 7:35P cause I’m the night owl. And I went “what? CRAP....wait a minute...” ROFL. Also thanks for the reminder about letting go of the things I cannot change and I need to stop trying to be superhuman. I’m harder on myself than anyone else. But it’s just been overwhelming for so long, it’s seriously affected my mental health. I tend toward depression as it is and I’ve been sliding downward for months now. Which makes things exponentially worse. Plus my immediate family is the mental health poster family for depression. Even our dog is on prozac. My husband and both sons are on the autism spectrum and they all struggle with depression and anxiety. My eldest attempted suicide at the age of 6, SIX, and 3 times as a teen. It’s heartbreaking. I felt like I couldn’t make anything better for my kids sometimes. Second son is struggling a lot now. He has narcolepsy as well, but is still managing to work. He is a genius and people keep telling him he will find the cure for cancer or something, but his challenges have made full-time college impossible and he’s woefully under-employed, but I’m just happy he’s chugging along. We’ve gone through years of meds, counseling, alternative healing. For the most part, though, my sons are now independent, self-supporting, smart funny, kind guys who can socialize well enough that most people who find out they are on the spectrum are surprised. Except for hubby. He didn’t have a neurotypical, empath for a mom so his behaviors are closer to the stereotypical Aspergers ones. People find him brusque, rude, and “odd.” But he’s a kind, smart, funny person if you can tolerate him long enough. We’ve done couples counseling on and off for the 30 years we’ve been married or I would have smothered him in his sleep by now. Anyway, it’s always crazy when we all have a depressive episode at the same time. And right now, that’s what’s going on in addition to the rest of the health issues. I stopped writing full-time in 2011 when I had to start pain meds. They fry my brain. I can barely string together a sentence. So that’s been difficult for me, especially since I love to write. And I’m
    Not contributing much to our horrid finances anymore when I used to be a big bread-winner. Also something that REALLY bothers me personally. I feel useless. Between the effects of the accident and my withering cognitive skills, I feel like I’ve been in my 80s for the past 25 years. My adult sons learned how to walk on my walker, not a Fisher Price toy. And brought me my leg braces to put on when they were toddlers. But that taught them to mimic empathy, even if faking it tired them out, lol. WOW, ok so sorry I just blithered. Yikes.
    WSW, you sound a lot like me with the high IQ and great memory. I lost my eidetic (photographic) memory with a head injury in my car accident and had to learn to function like mere mortals. Neurologist said holy hell woman, you’re functioning, quit yer whining. But it’s a scary adjustment. I have the memory gaps and struggle to find the right words, and memory loss. But when I went to a neurologist to get tested again a few years ago because I was convinced I had become demented, I aced all their tests according to their standards. This is a really long way of saying, you might be thinking you’re doing horribly, but it’s just a drop from a higher standard because you could do SO MUCH before. I wish you luck and hope you’re just being hard on yourself and that aging is just making you more like the rest of us geezers, lol.

    CHERYL, SAPH, WSW, & CHARLIE, thanks so much for the prayers and good wishes. I will take what I can get, lol. PAMELA, I’d like to know what that Brilliance measurement is, too. Doesn’t appear you get anything for it, but it increases with every game played. I think the better you do in a puzzle, the more Brilliance points you get. Maybe based on how quickly you complete the puzzles? Mine is over 1.2 million. I’m not the fastest, but I’m probably up there.

    Oh my goodness. I feel like I’ve been gone a week. My other half had a five hour surgery this AM at 7:30 for a blocked colon. And he’s still in recovery because he’s not stable. They need to tweak some things. He’s going to be here a week. We are coming off a positively horrid 2019 and 2020 might actually be worse, already. Every part of our lives is chaos right now. Ok my big goal for this weekend will be a tournament while I’m sitting on my butt in a hospital room. Maybe I will catch a syncc Friday and try for first time! Wish me luck, all the way around, lol.

    Howdy folks! Have some time so moving up the board. I’m in an iPhone, 958. I have the crown columns now and see some names with crowns. Oddly, on my meter I have a teeny tiny crown next to the first hashmarks after the zero. Makes no sense, lol. I reckon PF still tinkering, but maybe I will earn a crown this week! A girl can dream. DELETED USER, I don’t think we are playing computers if you join all weekend and other competitors have low scores: I think PF assigns you to a tournament with other players just joining the tournament. Would be a bummer if you joined Saturday afternoon and room was full of ppl with 1000s of points. You’d give up because you would never catch up.

He was going to get one in 92/93, but my accident in Jan 93 forced us to get a car that had a door wide enough to swing out to allow me to transfer from a wheelchair. Then came the kids.

    Aaagh, again I missed all the good chatter. Gonna have to scroll back for info on FB tho it sounds like there’s gonna be a place for ‘Scapers there, too.
    TONY, I hear you on the identity theft, but my experience has been no problem with FB if you don’t put your direct personal info all over the Internet. We’ve had our identities stolen more than three times: once from AT&T, once from US Gov’ts list of folks with top govt clearance, and twice from the IRS. When IRS sent us special PINS to file our taxes after the first time, someone hacked their database and got the PINS. Wasn’t even the dang Internet that was the issue for us. The IRS mess is still a problem five years later, and our kids’ IDs were stolen since they were listed on forms as dependents. Long-winded way of saying you do the best you can. Oh and interesting tidbit, when were filing reports with the state police etc. we learned that the #1 way credit card info is still stolen a few years ago was STILL using your card in a restaurant, not via online.

    MEA CULPA, there is NO Wordscapes with friends in my App Store. WORDSCAPES and Words with Friends were next to each other. Great idea though.

    RUFFIAN and REDDANT I think we’re onto to PF about the basics of the Crowns. Just not working for all of us. Boooo. I won my tournament and got 1000 points, but no crown or meter movement. Hope PF sorts it out and gives us Crowns retroactively too (ok a girl can dream lol)

    Wow, gone for a day and had to scroll mercilessly to keep up. OPAL, great news on your hubby, wahoo. WSW, do what you gotta do to hold that baby. I’m forgetting some people, but I plead head injury! Oh ok, I’m just old and dopey.
    ALL: I like that this is a no politics and religion zone. It’s nice to not have my blood pressure shoot through the roof and not get spit all over the screen from screaming at it out of frustration, which is 98.2% of other chat places. I think we should be allowed to stick our heads in the sand on controversy on at least ONE site.
    QUESTION: I noticed a “WORDSCAPES WITH FRIENDS” in the Apple App Store but didn’t check it out. Maybe that one has interactive chat? Or maybe I misread it when I was scrolling thru for something else. Wait was that a question? THAT was a question lol

    TONYG and AMY, I think I’m updated too, so not sure what problem is. TONY, if you go to your settings page (click funky wheel at top near ur name), it says Build 958 or Build something else at bottom of settings screen. At least on my version. I think JEFF or RUFFIAN said they had Build 960. I thought those numbers were Android vs. Apple platforms, NOT anything to do with software version, but I’m a dope.

    TONYG, you’re a sweetheart. Thanks for the Wordscapes encouragement AND, more importantly, the real-life encouragement. Put a smile on my face. I’m still in bed this AM/afternoon because just can’t get moving w/o whimpering. Ugh. I do hope your doc figured out what was going on with you. That sounds very overwhelming. Prayers, good vibes, chanting, and hugs right back atcha. :-)

    ALL, we’ll bite me. I won first place, got 1000 coins and a pic of a crown when I cashed my coins, but NO movement on crown meter. Curiouser and curiouser (Alice in Wonderland?)

    OMG, can you tell I have ADD, seriously. Just looking at the Crown Screen waiting for game to Talley and notice it says: Collect Crowns for Amazing Awards. That implies you don’t get just the crowns. Maybe coins come with the crowns, hence the drop in tournament coins? Guess we will find out soon, wahahahaha.

    Ok, gotta ask this question. It’s been bugging me since I started playing. When I scroll down to the first ten competitors in any tournament I’ve been in, they have scores like 1, 2, 3. How the heck do you get 1 Star? That’s not solving 1 word. How do you get a score w/o finishing a puzzle? And if 1 is your score after a puzzle, how did you lose all your stars? Or not get many? Is there a way to lose stars? Sorry for being a dope but figured someone here would know. “Inquiring minds want to know!”

    I think I’m still in first place in my tournament. When the dogs and hub started their symphony of snores last night, someone named FISH was 2000 plus points ahead of me, so I night-owled if for a few hours and kicked butt. Personal best by far, knock on wood.

Stop the partying on the I-5 though, Sistahs. We had a horrendous bus and tractor-trailer accident on the PA Turnpike with one regular car in the mix. 5 dead, 60 injured. 90 miles shut down for the day. Yikes.

    MANCO, I didn’t know a damn thing about the Clemson-USC RIVALRY TIL 2010 when my nephew was a red-shirt freshman. OMG, though, what a team to cut ur college football teeth on. Death Valley is crazy. And nothing beats a Tiger Walk and run past Howard’s Rock. Everyone in SC is college football crazy. People would stop my red-shirt nephew at gas pumps for autographs, stop our family in restaurants. We couldn’t get over it. USC was easy to hate. I really disliked Spurrier. Some of the stories about way he treated players were awful. Will say Dabo treated our family like gold. He’s a little too rambling for my taste, but is genuinely nice guy, lol.
    Guess I better shut up now, before Anonymous trolls me :-)

    FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL. C’mon it’s that time of year and the Pats went home already. If the Seahawks weren’t playing the Eagles, I’d be rooting for them. Russell Wilson was my Fantssy QB and I even have a 12th man T-shirt (somewhere), lol. But born and raised in Dela-WHERE? Only 30 minutes from Philly and Eagles fans are rabid. So gotta cheer on the Eagles today. Sorry ‘hawks fans :-)

    TONY G, I thought I was updated but I don’t see any Crown scores in the leader page and I’m in first place (humble brag). And dastardly Pats lost last night (lovely pick-6) so ALL IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD. Fly Eagles Fly. Go Pack.

    Waaaa. Life is messing with my tourney play this weekend. Boooo.
    EVERYONE: I have a playing style question: when I first played, I developed the habit of NOT liking at the puzzle and just blurting out words til puzzle is filled. That way I get bunches of bonus words. But bonus words don’t get you anything right? I’m wondering if I will significantly up my speed if I look at puzzle and just complete it, without going for bonus words. Any input?

    TONYG, good news re ur daughter. I’ve weaned off many drugs. Unfortunately, too late for some. I got kidney damage from too much anti-inflammatory. I’ve become much more educated about drug toxicity, though, so hope to avoid complications like that in the future. Those of you who live on over-the-counter heartburn meds need to kick that habit. So many meds, so many side-effects, smh.

    The Crown screen says Winter started December 13, so I’m guessing folks in tourneys with crowns already have won tournaments since 12/13. Though I could have sworn I won a tourney or two since then. Maybe I wasn’t updated then since my Crown info just appeared this week. Yup I think out loud way too much. As you were, players, lol.

    TONYG, bless your daughter. I really struggled with the memory loss. I have all kinds of tricks to help, but I had a “photographic” memory before the accident so I had to get used to a new way to read, study, function. Does your daughter still get headaches? Mine lasted forever. Ugh. Ok no whining! Good luck tonight. I’ve never been really competitive at the tournaments. Highest score only in the 4,000s, but have won a couple.
    HAVE FUN ALL, maybe see you in a tournament soon.

    TONYG. Don’t get me started in football, lol. I have personal interest in Clemson; never cared about college ball before but went to most of my nephew’s games. We’d drive 11 hours Friday, watch game Saturday, drive 11 hours home on Sunday. We loved when he played away in Boston and Maryland lol. I like LSU. Anyone but Alabama. That’s how I feel about the Patriots, too: anyone but them, lol. Love the Saints. Think Chiefs might be sneaky this year. But yup, Ravens are a juggernaut!

    OPAL I try to play more during the tournaments, so it’s true, doesn’t matter if I’m a night owl.
    TONYG, I’m a MISERABLE morning person, lol. I’m a writer and editor. Not doing much of either at the moment because I’m on disability thanks to long-term effects of a nasty car accident. Fell asleep at the wheel I think (head injury) and someone rear-ended me and sent me into the tall barrier holding up a cloverleaf. At least that’s what guy who rear-ended me said. No witnesses. No other injuries Thank God. Got cut from car and chopper Ed to Shock Trauma. Two months in hospital and rehab. Life support, lots of internal injuries, crushed legs from pelvis down. Only things not broken or damaged were my right arm and pelvis. In and out of wheelchairs, limp badly but can walk short distances. This was years ago. I thought walking again was going to be the battle. Turns out it’s the arthritis at every break (right leg broken in 14 places alone), blood clots, lymphedema, long-lasting lung and heart issues. Ugh. So Wordscapes is a great escape from the chronic pain. At least dulls the most acute. That and pain meds :-) And aromatherapy, acupuncture, and meditation. Whatever works I say.

    I’m in PA, SW of Philly and in Baltimore City in Fells Point. Love Baltimore, but big Philly sports fan. Lived in Balto, Minneapolis, so Ravens and Vikes fan, too. Nephew played as a defensive starter for Clemson football for 5 years, so still BIG Clemson fan. Looking forward to Championship game. LSU is a steamroller this year. *THUD* okay, off my football soapbox, lol.

    It’s that time of the week again. Tuesday. And CleanSlate is looking for a few players to round out our roster. We do kick inactives, which is why we’re still looking. You’ve seen my earlier posts with all the dirty details about this fun, chatty, competitive team. This is just a shout out to players looking for a new team...or thinking about looking for a new team. Check out CleanSlate and make yourself at home. We’ll leave a light on for you.

    CleanSlate just shook up the roster again so we have room for new players. We are a fun, chatty family that loves to compete. We have a tournament minimum but it’s waived for real life if you let us know. Check into chat when you join, then at least weekly. Especially before tournaments to get start-time and let us know status for the weekend. We like to keep membership below fifty, but we have enough team BP to run with the Big Dawgs, Woof. Check is out; we think you’ll love us 😜

    KATHY, I’m pretty fast and on level 24,000. My top score has been over 10,000 points in a tournament and I’ve seen people break 15,000. It’s easily possible to do without cheating, but you have to play a lot of hours, A LOT. Now 1,000 points in a minute? I’m guessing that’s cheating...
