Welcome LadyC !! As you know you need a time-slot to play this game, so I take it the time you played yesterday was good for you. The game runs Mon-Fri, I only posted the first entry yesterday because it is a Bank Holiday in the UK and I was having a lie in. The next time you post an entry....will be Tuesday as you have already posted for Monday.

Again, Welcome to the game !!

SWAMI - "W" PLUS "B":

as in that cute little lion who killed his daddy and ran off to live with a meercat and warthog in the jungle until Benson came and served him breakfast...
Or something like that...

There was one challenge yesterday but unfortunately it will not count. Bridelady is right in saying JW's entry is invalid as it is not English BUT...the rules state that an entry is Valid if found in the Onelook.com site under 'Definitions in English'. JW's entry can be found there. Looks like I will have to amend the rules yet again to omit that grey area.

So, no invalid entries...here are the scores !!

JabberWock...........75
Sypher...............60
Bridelady............54
Pling................51
Ladymacb29...........18
Mamaja...............18

Ya, sorry about that last entry folks. I defended my post, before I even read Sypher's ruling on it. See the "Scramblings" thread for my thoughts.

I learned a new word for this one:
RAGGY minus a "G" plus an "E", put the Y in front and squish 'em all around to get:
YAGER
It's another word for horseman.
