[quote=mjzerella;10568. Weird how the longer words stayed hidden for so long.[/QUOTE]
It is a curious phenomenon. Recently I started a game with 43 games played. The best word was REMOTIONS (16 pts) and the longest word record was LIONISATION (11). I found METROPOLITANISATION (36/15), which to me doesn't seem too exotic as the adjective part of it is pretty common.

I suppose players looking for points and total words play the majority of games on any given board. They're usually not even looking for long words. So it takes a long word specialist to find the long ones. It seems there are more long word seekers than ever before but I think we are still a fairly small minority.

I've noticed your username on some interesting word records. So well done on those.

MILLIROENTGEN (13 letters) on a board with 46 plays where the previous record was 7 letters.

I like finding long words, but I'm not an all-out long word seeker, more an all-around player trying to break records for individual boards. (But I also have fewer long/high-scoring word records because I avoid playing boards with fewer than 10 plays unless someone has already posted an impressive record on the board.)

OK, I really like MILLIROENTGEN. I've gotten ROENTGEN- words over time, but maybe I've missed the MILLI- part.

I'm shocked that no one even found ROENTGEN (which would itself have broken the record) in 46 plays.

Good find DrP! Ironically, I'm pretty sure I played the word you found on another board. It's all a learning experience.

Nobody's ever played these words, but y'all remember these. They might come in handy...

As someone who rarely gets as high as "average," long words aren't really my thing! But I take great satisfaction in getting a new green word on a board with many plays. Sometimes it's a wild guess, but sometimes I get a word I actually know but that no one else has found. That's pretty cool.
