I hope I have it right today and my list is fully up-to-date.

Congratulations to our rosetteers rogue_mother and dragonman who found all forty eight common words in this disturbing puzzle – everyone else in our cohort were LESS ABLE… :P :P :P Again, you’ve both done well!!! 👏👏👏

Our rosettenears in all likelihood had a “doh!” moment when the final word was revealed, didn’t you 2dognight, Roddles, blackrockrose and Maudland???

Being two short is not so bad when you’re in the company of doxydaisy and auntiemo as I was today – the LESSEE of the upstairs space decided to use it to provide SALSA lessons…

Sitting on three off the pace, forty five commons discovered, was ozzyjune while yelnats and Jancsika were two further back on forty three…

Meanwhile, ozzymAndias discovered the answer to life, the universe and everything but still failed to find six of the common words…

Joining the party on forty one was vizal (and I’ll reiterate here that I’m sorry for the horrible list of word suggestions coming your way, Alan, as a consequence of the LESS ABLE ness of the seed letters)…

Clocking on at thirty four found is Scouser1952 while ozzyjack saw the high word count, found the seed word and skedaddled…

With the bar set at seventy eight words for mavenhood dragonman*, rogue_mother* and doxydaisy were the only members of our crew who cleared it – good work!!! 😎😎😎 As per usual, the asterisks signify double dignity… 🎉🎉🎉

Too right, and I needed some BALSAM for my lack of rosettability.

I've just been reminiscing with the early posts in the 7 by many club and have been getting quite melancholy that Les303 is no longer with us...

I came across this one in particular and thought it worthwhile quoting for all those out there who would like to join...

I received a personal message recently, asking how one becomes a member of the 7 by many club.
Anyone who is registered for the forum & has played the 7 by many game is automatically an honorary member of the club.
To become an official club member, all you have to do is post a comment in this thread.
 I post a comment / opinion each day when the game has closed on what i thought was a " special " performance that deserves recognition however i cannot possibly monitor everybody's performance without missing something so i encourage others to take the initiative & post their own highlights / comments / opinions from any particular game.
And do not be shy about telling us about your own " special " performance, it might be as simple as achieving your first " best score " , rosette, maven or perhaps even a cham & trophy or something like finally being able to match or even beat the likes of Mike, Maud, Rose, June, Alan, etc...on the scoreboard or even more likely you may prefer to just rubbish me & my comments & opinions.
Either way, it is all in good fun & i can think of no better way to distract ourselves from all of the negativity & limitations that have been imposed on our communities due to this bloody covid virus.

Vale Les...

Well, today’s twenty four word puzzle was a doozy and our rosetteers rogue_mother, ozzyjune and ozzymAndias need to be congratulated for finding them all!!! 👏👏👏

We had many more rosettenears with 2dognight, dragonman, Roddles, doxydaisy, Maudland and myself all missing by that single word – if I’d got GEWGAW I’d have had another showy trinket to add to my collection… (This game never fails to educate me with its obscure common words!)

Today’s ballerinas were vizal and Jancsika who were two two short…

Celebrating a significant birthday today were auntiemo and ozzyjack who were both twenty one today…

One common word further back was blackrockrose on twenty whilst yelnats was one word behind her…

Scouser1952 was sweet sixteen today (never been kissed???) and rounds out our rosette attempts…

With a total of fifty eight words in the bag, dragonman still failed to get a rosette and yet was our best placed maven having exceeded the answer to life, the universe and everything by a fair margin – others achieving mavenhood today were rogue_mother*, 2dognight, and doxydaisy… Well done all!!! 😎😎😎 Rogue was our solitary rosetteer who achieved mavenhood – great work!!! 🎉🎉🎉

I didn't have much trouble with my gewgaw. However, I was very nearly a rosettenear until I realized that I had played weaving, but not weave. Doh! Fortunately I made this realization before the final bell, not after.

Geegaw was the dismay of many of us, Madeleine - I'd never heard of it previously and hope that in future I remember it...

On to today's results: Woo hoo!!! Twenty one today and congratulations go to today’s rosetteers doxydaisy, myself, rogue_mother, blackrockrose, dragonman and Roddles – good job, well done!!! 👏👏👏

Those kicking themselves with rosettenears are yelnats, 2dognight, vizal and Maudland – did MUUMUU get you???

Keeping himself company was Jancsika who, on nineteen, found himself two short to entertain company…

Next on eighteen were auntiemo and ozzyjune with three missing words followed two words back by ozzymAndias…

Scouser1952 must have had other things to do as he made his appearance at eight common words found which is probably the same for ozzyjack who got the seed word and scarpered off to prepare for his daughter’s birthday…

Just twenty eight words will reward you with mavenhood and dragonman*, rogue_mother*, 2dognight and doxydaisy* all got there but Roddles just came up short…  Nice work!!! 😎😎😎 As per usual, the asterisks signify double dignity… 🎉🎉🎉

I think we need to discuss why I missed SUMMITRY.
(On second thoughts … )

I have to agree Madeleine, summitry didn't roll off my tongue either...  :P :P :P

With thirty three common words required, we had a near “record” (hopefully you’ll all get the pun there 😉😉😉) number of rosetteers with 2dognight leading off auntiemo, dragonman, yours truly, Roddles, doxydaisy, and the ozzys June, Jack and Andrew… Well done all and I imagine a few of you will be “on a roll”… 👏👏👏

No-one was a rosettenear today amongst our crew but we had our ballerinas, rogue_mother and Maudland, who were two two short…

Three shy of the mark were blackrockrose and Jancsika on thirty followed closely by vizal on twenty nine…

Next came yelnats on twenty four followed by Scouser1952 on twenty.

Aspiring mavens required sixty nine words and ozzymAndias*, rogue_mother, myself*, doxydaisy*, 2dognight*, dragonman* and ozzyjack* all stepped up to the plate to earn their mavenhoods… 😎😎😎 As per usual, the asterisks signify the double dignity of mavenhood and rosette… 🎉🎉🎉
