    Thanks for the encouragement, my high words so far is 80... but I do get in the high range quite a bit,,, have a lot better go of it when there aren't a ton of words in the puzzle because I do find obscure words and given time I find more than average most of the time.

      .. Played: 2 times
      Average Score: 580.3 points
      Average Words: 108 words
      High Score: 1125 points by MegaWord
      Most Words: 200 words by MegaWord

      It seems you misread the game results. Megaword actually played 200 words during that game. He is the only person who has ever played 300 words in a game. How does he do it? It think it has something to do with his playing over 96,000 games, learning thousands and thousands of words, constantly striving to improve his typing speed and having a talent for it. If you don't believe that could ever be done, then watch his videos and see for yourself.

      I looked at last month's 5x5 avg words/game competition results and there were 14 different people who averaged over 108 words/game.

          I knew the rhino- had a use! Screenshot 2020-07-25 at 11.56.58 AM.png
          I like how it simply means "ear, nose and throat doctor."

            I stitched together what I thought were some interesting Frankenstein words this month for new best and longest word records:

            SELENOMORPHICALLY (30/16, I learned the word SELENOGRAPHY a couple years ago so I thought, "Why not?")
            TUMORIGENICITY (26/14, I didn't think the combo form tumori- would be valid.)
            ARCHAEOMETRIST (26/14)
            METAGENETICALLY (28/15)
            ANTHROPOPATHIES (28/15)

            Yeah, that word is a beaut. I learned it from ThunderRock 3 years ago. It took another year or so to play it on a board that had it. I've always loved convoluted words like that. I'm glad I can fully indulge my sesquipedalian appetite on this website.

              I almost duplicated the impossible feat of three years ago: the famous "invisible game". If I had scored precisely 499 points instead of 517, I would have tied for everything and my game would have been completely invisible. As it was, I tied for the word total, best word, and longest word.
              Game Results

              YOUR STATS:Total points: 517 New record!
              Total words: 99 (51 common,15 wide,10 rare,23 ultra rare)
              Best word: WEANERS (12 pts.)
