In up to roughly 140 characters or so, use the forum as you would twitter, making any comment you want to share with everyone else. Totally random topics and unconnected with previous ones. I'll kick off.

Having lost the memory of a year ago I played Word Wizard again as it was a new year so as to not change my ratings from 2014. But it doesn't automatically reset and dropped six places.

Someone just announced yesterday one of the rarest road signs had been found 20 miles from me but had to be quick as it was being removed. Then I read the year was 2014.

For the first time I was locked out of the crystal ball after three wins and would have got another word. That's life.

NB this was intended as a chain game but wasn't considered eligible as it didn't fit the rules there so was moved here. Please join in and treat is as a chain as I'm getting lonely talking to myself!

Finding the Duel stressful and frustrating, yet fun, since I continue to play.

I've just finished mapping over 100 photos I took on Sunday. It's the best bit for me.

I can now stop playing in the Fill me in monthly game as I don't think I can be overtaken for the badge. I'll keep checking in case though for another week.

I'd fall much further with a couple of bad games than not playing, I checked the ones either side of me with a week to go.

Since getting wireless recently I have just invested in a tablet and am now sending my first message in front of the TV.

I have spent two months playing 1-2 hourly quizzes, and the hard challenge on the first of the new month was Nemesis. No! I am on a break!

I'm not sure but this may be the first set of letters I've had in word wizard which were all vowels (and the previous hour as well) A E E O I O U A O I A A

Have we finally got the definitive least reasonable possible words for a crystal ball pair, ZL? 39 runners up, two expected possible words.

When I looked at the home page it said 2 minutes to go. I clicked into the crystal ball page and it said 1 minutes to go. I typed zloty and <guess>. only to be told the word had been discovered! quickest dam 2 minutes on Earth! That should read 40 runners up.

I just delayed finishing my daily challenge to score 228 quiz questions correct and forgot it turned over at 6am. I won't let that happen again.

Yes, it seems to me that some, not all, games finish early (before midnight FT). Plus you would have had a few bonus points from your last games.

I got the FT midnight crystal ball. That did the job. And nice to be able to play Word Wizard again now I've saved my rating falling for 2015 by stopping playing.

Oh well, I've just discovered both the women I like at the gym are taken. Fancy that, back to square one.

We just had the same word come up (scintilla) in word wizard with its two different meanings in consecutive questions. Random or arranged?
