I'd guess that ZINCY is a word too. Anyway, maybe that's a good word for ZINCOPHILES or something.(I can't remember the last conversation I had about zinc, although it probably had something to do...

I have learned (kind of) not to get too bogged down in finding the exact letter path. That kind of thing has happened a lot to me, so if I think I see a long word, I'll type it and maybe later go...

You can apparently write scripts to play for you, to check for words you have in a dictionary data base & enter them, etc. (I think others have said that the list of words on a board are actually...

I'm pretty sure that I've run across that before with other words, although I don't really recall them now. (Of course that's weirder than allowing the singular but not the plural, which we know...

TWISTORS isn't a math term I'm familiar with, but it doesn't sound like something out of the range of possibility. Possibly something related to topology? (OK, I just looked it up on Wikipedia. It's...

OK, so if there's ever a board with both the DE- & RE- versions, there's the possibility of a 180 point board with 4 words. I guess that's my holy grail.

Yes, I've been burned by dropping the S before, and sometimes kept the pair if the average was high enough. (I've also been burned by adding the S. I'm not sure how that works.) I don't always...

You're probably right about the 44/42 points, although I know about the reductions.

Anyway, congrats on your goals! I've had "new" 45 point words, and 2 45 point words, but they weren't new. I'll...

I apparently recorded the points wrong when I got UNREPRESENTATIVENESSES. Someone got it on the July list (I think) but for 42 points.

I'm pretty sure that I've gotten some form of that word before. We obviously have different taste in books. I've read quite a bit of cryptozoological stuff over time.
