Congratulations Winners and Losers, you’re moving on to the semi-finals. Two groups of four, and the top two will advance to the next round where they will play head to head in their respective brackets. I’m hoping for a semi-live event again. May record the contestants playing their boards ahead of time and sharing the vid in a Google doc for all to watch together (if such a thing is possible).
So were the disappearing letters a hinderance at all?
Did I explain horizontal/vertical well enough? A lot of you left a lot of points in your standard list that would have qualified.
Plurals! Always look for the plural. Also look for other forms of the word you just found. S, ED, and ER are your good friends.
It was nice to come across a unique word every once in a while after seeing the same ones a bajillion times between this and my own games I play: Greek’s “GRISTLE”, Todashy’s “YESTER”, and yes, I loved Jon’s “SPERM”.
Hope to have the next round out tonight. We’ll see.
