    Thank you for the compliments, It’s nice to find to find people who have similar interests. My friends assume I’m just guessing patterns.

    To RussDNails My brain gets tired far before my thumb does!

    and to Naboka, I’m only 23 so I have no spouse to tend to! Saying that, I guess I should explain the name “Boysmom” lol. My mom created this account when I was 11 and her and I would sit at the computer and play every day together. Fast forward to April, and the start of quarantine, I needed a new word game to play to occupy my time and was able to recover the account.

    What you're doing is amazing. The dexterity is mind boggling. And speed.

    Using a phone after watching your video, I flubbed so many times for every word completed that frustration short-circuited the game before getting a dozen.

    If I had your skills I'd pick a month with 31 days and try for 2 millions points. Just because it's there. Like Everest. As far as I've seen, only Megaword's done it.

    Then again, playing too many games has consequences. I had to cut back because I was riding the edge of tunnel carpal syndrome--and my neglected wife was getting annoyed.

    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.

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.

    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.........

    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!
