      Board with 49 plays, making me the 50th.

      Total points: 581 New record!
      Total words: 102 (56 common,16 wide,10 rare,20 ultra rare)
      Best word: FRAGMENTIZATIONS (33 pts.) New record!
      Longest word: FRAGMENTIZATIONS (16 letters) New record!

      11 green words: ACTIN, ACTINS, AGEIST, FRAGMENTIZATIONS, NEGATION, NEGATIONS, PATIO, PATIOS, RAITA, RAITAS, SEPTA

      Note: the singular FRAGMENTIZATION was not accepted, which has been the case for some long singular words in this game where the plural has been accepted. I typed it twice to make sure. The previous record for both best and longest word was FRAGMENTIZES.

        Board with 52 plays.

        10 green words: DEMISS, DEMISSION, IMINE, IMINES, IMINO, OMBUS, SEISIN, SENSI, SENSIS, SENSIST

        Several of these words are from fields where I have some expertise: IMINE, IMINES, and IMINO from organic chemistry (undergrad biology major) and SEISIN from law (current profession).

          Today I found QUADRATES on a board played 50 times. (20 points where the previous best word was 16 points.) I didn't take it. I did better on boards played 49 times (CYTODIFFERENTIATION) and 48 times (PALAEOCLIMATOLOGIST). On the last two, I added CYTO- and PALAEO- to the previous best words, for 36 points each.

              Following DrPlacebo's calculation, on a board played 49 times I not only found a green word, I got the new best word and longest word with....BOWHEADS (14 points, 8 letters). I am nothing if not prosaic.

              Great idea, FelixTheCat. Thank you.

              I would like to point out that I found this word at 11:46 pm. My weeknight bedtime should be about two hours earlier. I'm pretty sure I have a problem.

                You're welcome! Glad folks are enjoying it!


                I was the first to find ARRASES (7 points!) on a board played 50 times already!

                          I just found BIPOLARISATIONS on a game played 50 times. I played no other words to preserve my APPW.

                                LOL, I *just* played that same game... missed bipolarisations, but lighted up a bunch of greens. ;-)
