Default Never run into games with 24 letter longest words

If I go to the current month best and longest word records held, there are LOTS of people who have gotten 24 letters, 23 letters, 22 letters, etc. However, I never run into any games where it shows a record of that many letters. Do these games get retired after they are played? I see plenty of games where the same players have gotten shorter words, but never the longest ones. I quickly skip through lots and lots of game options looking for the ones with the longest words, so it's really weird that I NEVER run into any of these. What gives?

Default Luck

Luck of the click. Keep trying and you'll find one, just today I came across one, and it was one that someone else had already found. I think boards retire early only based on the high score. Oddly enough, I think the 4x4 boards retire early at 800+ points and the 5x5 boards at only 600+ points.

I go for long words on the 5x5, and clicking through the boards (a LOT of boards), I don't see that many per month. I got amazingly lucky this month (as Spike1005) and ran across the same board With REINSTITUTIONALIZATION & the plural, both worth 45 points, three times. As Spike1007, I've played a lot of games this month, but probably haven't run across any 45 point words. Keep clicking...
