Wow, you never know what you're gonna get in the WordTwist Boggle box of chocolates!
I just took on a new board with 2 ultra-rare words (85 total available). I spotted -ography early on and eventually tried ZINCOGRAPHY (19/11) and it worked! I tacked on photo- for PHOTOZINCOGRAPHY and it was worth 27/16! Apparently it's photography that's captured on zinc plates.

(btw, I always thought Forrest Gump's mom could have told him there's an index card in the box that let's you know what each chocolate is. Maybe she wanted him to experience the wonderment of random choices?)

GITANO(S). I didn't realize English had borrowed the word from various Romance languages.

SYLLABIFYING (12/14). Saw the IFYING and wondered if there was something. Was the 33rd player on that board too!
