The board's time is up when it hits 51 plays or someone scores above 600 points. There's some delay; probably it's done once a day or so, which accounts for the occasional past-expiration board.

Just half-retired another replicant board. It's funny the way a throttled computer algorithm doesn't find anything like the same word list as a human, giving results like this:

Speaking of which, I *almost* retired another replicant board. Beat the cheater's # of words, but just missed high score. I must need another update to my software.

And bwt: what a crazy experience. I'm so glad you're all right, and I think we can forgive you this time for reduced boggle play. If you try to use the tornado excuse again we might get suspicious.

REINSTITUTIONALISATION(S) is definitely worth trying. It isn't in the 3 lexicons (CSW, WWF, YAWL) with near-100% inclusion rates for longwords. In fact, it's only in a single (very inclusive)...

Good question. I think I'm going to recalculate the list of common-ish 4-letter words I've never played, and try to play three of them by the end of the month. That was fun, the last time I did that.

Satisfying

There are still a few unretired 5x5 boards where a cheater holds the record. Most of them are unapproachable, but I just put another one out of its misery :)
