  • 51st game: AERO (4), AEROS (8), ORAD (6), SORRAS (10)

    • 51st game: EROSE (6), OVERBRIM (14), OVERBRIMS (16)

      According to the chart that was shown before the game, there was only one word on the board with 9+ letters. So, on the 51st play, I was the first to find the longest word on the board.

        • 50th play:
          FUSIL (6), FUSILE (10), ITER (6), PREREQUISITE (15), PREREQUISITES (16), SPRUE (6), SPRUES (10).

          PREREQUISITES was a new longest word record.

          • 50th play: CRARE (8), CRARES (10), YACHTMEN (14). The last was a new best word record, and I'm especially proud of it both because of the unusual consonant cluster and because compound words are so easy to overlook.

            • 51st play: ORFE, ORFS, OUKS.

              I feel these types of words will be the ones that eventually lead me to getting the final word on a board. That is my major goal and is why I never pass up a board. I actually like the boards with less than 100 - 150 words!

                • You're averaging 650+ on 4x4 by swiping on a phone?! That's pretty impressive!

                    • That would actually be fun to see! I can average 700+ on 5x5by typing but can barely get 400 swiping, even on a bigger screen like an iPad.........

                        Oh yes, that would be great to watch. I noticed your all time high pts and wds are close to 1000 and 200, would be epic to reach it swiping, good luck!

                          I wasn’t sure how to share the video so I made a YouTube account and posted the link below. The video is just a screen recording off my phone but I’ll try to get a family member to capture a better video so you can actually see my thumb. Enjoy!

                            Damn, that was one crazy light show, I'm just seeing lights everywhere going super speed. I slowed it down to .25 speed and I could see what was happening better. You had 8 words in the first 3 seconds proving your speed capability to be easily over 2 words per second, which would be 240 words. I'm just stunned how fast it was happening. A smaller phone may actually help to make the swipes quicker? And yes I would like to see the quicksilver thumb in action.

                              I’ll try and get a video up tonight or tomorrow of my thumb. I was actually surprised upon watching the replay how many words I missed that I thought I did.

                              This is from a different boggle-like game, they have a much smaller dictionary but allow 2 letter word plays. https://youtu.be/6TXK8d_A4Qg

                                There is no way I can move my thumb like that, insane . Kinda scary to think your thumb might actually be moving faster than that, I look forward to the vid.
