Wow ... my first rosette ...

Didn't expect that to happen. Though I'm left wondering how many of the "common" words in that list really are thus in terms of usage outside this game ... :)

Congratulations & well done, Cal, I imagine that you have come very close on many previous occasions so to finally breakthrough must give you a real buzz.


In the current challenge game, I find myself yet again searching for just one more word to attain that ever elusive rosette & just to rub salt into the wound, in this instance, the word that I just cannot find also happens to be the " common " big word.

Cheers Les

Les, you're not alone in struggling to find the 9 letter common word in the current Challenge puzzle.  It was the last common word I found - took me ages.  Interestingly, at the time of writing this message (with the puzzle still open for another eight hours or so) fewer people had found the common 9 letter word (134) than had found the rare 9 letter word (221).  I don't think I've ever seen that before.

It's now 159 to 267. I did get the "common" word before I got the rare, but I'd never heard the common as a verb before.

As for rosettes, I look to be going downhill...

Just lately, I've been finding it easier to discover the Challenge nine-letter word than the Standard one! The rosette puzzle was an exception - I found the nine-letter word for that as my first answer, a rare occurrence over the past month or so!
