I'd noticed that before too. As Spike1005, the same calculation of average points/word gives 2.76. It's quite a feat to get that low, since all words are worth a minimum of 3 points.

Thanks for the congratulations (which I managed to delete from your reply)!

As 007, I do only play boards where there's a 9+ letter ultra-rare word, and it looks like I can (possibly) set a record...

Hey, I'm about ready to give this up myself. It's hard enough to do it in a month, but I've packed that much clicking into two days. (And, yes, I have long patches of not finding a good board.) I'm...

That's pretty amazing! (It looks like you have custody of REINSTITUTIONALIZATION/S for the month though.) It looks like you'll hit 51 games by tomorrow.

OK, I really liked your MELON comment. On a weird added note, I got a spam email today with the subject line "You are one in a melon."

I looked some more, and it looks like base scores for ultra-rare words just max out at 42. During play, they can be reported higher.

I was bitten by that today (or I just screwed myself over). I...

I'm sure that from their side, they see this as a case of MEGATECHNOWONDERFULNESS. To us users, it's pretty much a pain. (I'm also sure that we could all come up with a better (and higher-scoring)...

bwt1213, points taken (no pun intended). Anyway, it sounds like we play similarly, so that I hit 51 games long before I hit my target number of words. I've wondered what I'd do if I fell far short of...

lalatan/thinkbig once suggested a minimum of around 25 words, and I'd go along with that. I don't really like a minimum points/game, since I generally end up with a lot more games than words. (Even...

Congratulations! I think I set a (recent) high for me today of 88 points (with 2 words, though). Obviously we have different goals.
