Words / Vaping in yesterday’s standard Grapevine puzzle
« on: May 25, 2023, 10:33:37 AM »
How exciting to play VAPING yesterday and have a new anagram with PAVING. Many will know Mkneuk or Mike, who sadly has not played for quite some time now, and he once told me that anagrams were pretty much the key to Chihuahua.
And great to see that 420 players found it too.

Words / INGROUND in yesterdays ten letter REBOUNDING game
« on: May 09, 2023, 09:12:43 AM »
Tried INGROUND (as in swimming pool) but not known. In Australia we have above ground or INGROUND swimming pools.
Is this only known here? Like the word ensuite written as one word, which is also not accepted.
Being in real estate both are words we use frequently in advertising.
Alan, you’ve already explained ensuite is more widely known overseas as en suite, but what about INGROUND? Should it be added as a word?

Words / Comity in yesterday’s ten letter Mediocrity game
« on: May 04, 2023, 08:47:58 PM »
Found by 7.7% of the players, COMITY was not a word I’m thinking is a common word. Alan could you please review this word’s status? Many thanks.

Words / AQUIVER in yesterday’s QUAVERING game
« on: April 04, 2023, 04:28:55 PM »
I played AQUIVER and was very surprised to see it was a rare word. As the avid reader of Mills and Boon romance novels in my formative adolescent years I would have thought the word was prevalent enough in those novels alone to give it common status. Heaving bosoms and racing pulses and all aquiver with excitement and anticipation.
Surely this word should be changed to common? Could you look at it please Alan?

Whatever / Daylight savings
« on: April 02, 2023, 10:53:40 AM »
I hate it when Daylight Savings ends! But I do like the morning puzzle being an hour earlier. This is probably a really dumb question but do you change it Alan to suit Australian time lines or is it something that happens world wide?

Words / Neuritis in the UNIVERSITY ten letter game
« on: March 26, 2023, 12:13:47 AM »
Played by 20 (to be honest I’m surprised so many knew it) from 249 players, neuritis is apparently a common word? I pressed on it to see its meaning and it’s a nervous condition.
Now I’m not saying it’s not a perfectly valid word, but I would like to ask that it be reclassified as rare because I’ve never heard of it and given the numbers over 90% of players haven’t either.

Words / Six from 266 found LAMASERY
« on: February 01, 2023, 07:04:09 PM »
The ten letter MEASURABLY puzzle had LAMASERY as a common word, and this was found by only six knowledgeable players.
Now I know it’s a monastery for Buddhists so thanks Chihuahua for broadening my vocabulary! Could I ask this word be reviewed please Alan as a common word. Thanks.

Words / DRUTHERS in yesterday’s UNDERSHIRT ten letter game
« on: January 20, 2023, 08:45:27 PM »
I missed DRUTHERS. Now I’ve seen the solution I would say I’ve vaguely heard of the word, but should it be classed as a common word? Played by 20 from 266 it wouldn’t seem so with Chihuahua players anyway. Could you please review the status of this word Alan? Thanks

Words / PLAINSONG in Friday Jan 6 Standard puzzle
« on: January 07, 2023, 11:13:57 AM »
It’s been a while since I couldn’t get the main word but I’ve never heard of PLAINSONG. Anyway as usual, Chihuahua helps my vocabulary grow. I can’t help but wonder if it’s a common word, of course just because I don’t know it doesn’t mean it’s not, but what do others think?

Words / THRUWAY in yesterday’s ten letter WRATHFULLY game
« on: January 04, 2023, 10:24:12 PM »
Is this an American word? In Australia it would be THROUGHWAY I imagine.
Ensuite is not allowed cause it’s restricted to Australia so why should THRUWAY be common? I know they’re probably not connected but hopefully you see where I’m coming from.
In any case, Alan I ask you to review THRUWAY as a common word. At least it’s not down under.

Words / Variegate in the ten letter VARIEGATED puzzle
« on: December 29, 2022, 07:09:34 PM »
I cannot believe how long I just spent looking for the last common word and it finally dawned on me that I’d played VARIEGATED but not variegate! It was like when I played STONED and not Stone in a game a while ago amd I complained on the forum how stupid I was, and Roddles very wittily remarked something to the effect that if I was going to play stoned then things like this will happen!
At least I realised this time before the game closed.

Whatever / RODDLES in Yesterday’s UNDERSOLD game
« on: December 27, 2022, 01:31:42 PM »
The only word I kept seeing was RODDLES! How funny.

Whatever / Merry Christmas everyone
« on: December 25, 2022, 08:36:25 AM »
Feliz Navidad all of you and hope you have a safe and happy festive season! Prawns and ham here in the capital of Australia and a cold chook for a backup if needed. Meringues, mangoes, plum pudding and crème anglaise and lots of champagne and already played a few hands of euchre which can turn a peaceful family gathering into something else!

Words / Theatric in the STARCHIEST ten letter puzzle
« on: December 22, 2022, 07:31:17 PM »
I was surprised that THEATRIC was not a common word. So then I tried it with an S for THEATRICS but this was not allowed. I understand that probably theatrical is used more often but I definitely thought theatric would be close behind. What do you think Alan or are you happy to leave it as is?

Words / Chaperon in yesterday’s CHAPERONE Challenge game
« on: November 26, 2022, 10:27:07 AM »
Here I go again- having a bad trot with LWS (last word syndrome) and failing to achieve a rosette and this time Chaperon without an E was my downfall. And many others I suspect with only six rosettes in total. I was surprised that 42 people found CHAPERON from 317 players.
In any case Alan, I’d like to ask that this be changed to rare because I’ve never seen it spelt that way unless there’s something I don’t know (which I’m sure is the case!) Thank you.
