Found word OTD: ILOPRY

I think I knew ROPILY but not the other. Found when auto correct changed 'private' typed badly into this word...

Wouldn't have guessed it, but these seven letters make no word, and only make one eight with the blank.

AAGILMMR: missed bingo OTD

Somehow I'd never heard this word, even though I work for the post office...

Guess I need to brush up on my vowel dump bingos

I had forgotten AEIOOP? contains one. I actually passed, remembering one of the three 8's which one can make (provided they play an E)

Missed bingo: ABFFLOU

A case of not even taking the time to think there was a word in there, even a common one... And it also could've been played to an -ED on the board!

Scramble with friends WOTD: AGILMPS


Alt spelling of MEGILPS (anagram of GLIMPSE).... It's a substance with which pigments are mixed in painting. 

MEGILPH is another form.

EILNOR?: bingo strategy quiz

So there are 8 possibilities here but only one that puts L in the fourth position (which, imagine, you need in order to hit the double-double). Can you find it? In how long?

Things I learned at club this week

1. GLOT* isn't a word. Suspected but didn't challenge off. 

2. CARE has two front four-letter extension possibilities. I guessed the MEDI- might be one (though I didn't play it) Know the other?

3. Correctly challenged off TERP*

4. Missed GRINNERS

Two ways to extend this- this was on the board I played last night, in case you're wondering. The two possibilities are from the letters


Can you figure them out?

Find the winning play

You have EIORST?, the only space on the board requires the ending two letters front hooking to YO. What is the one playable word? Oh, and your clock is running down. And a couple of your kids happen to show up and come in to say hi to you, haha.

Still around.. sort of

I've actually been studying words a little bit with my Zyzzyva iPhone app... I may try and do some occasional posts on here via the blogger app. Not sure if I'll do any podcasts, but I've dug up a few and am trying to at least repost them on the iTunes store.
