Friday 7th March 2014 (Series 70, Prelim 45)

Hello again and welcome to another Friday recap, brought to you by my (reasonably) good self :) It's been a week of some change this week with nobody yet settling into the Champion's chair following Andy Naylor's triumphant Octochampdom last week.

Re: Friday 28th February 2014 (Series 70, Prelim 40)

There was some discussion of FAIN (FAINER, etc) in a recent World Wide Words weekly e-mail, recommended reading for wordsmiths. FAINEST being disallowed is quite unfortunate I'd say. Well if FAINER and FAIN would have been allowed, I would have thought under the one syllable rule, FAINEST would be ...

Re: 1001-2000 most common maxes, and so on

I would have thought the best way to learn would be to practice at Apterous. That way you actually see what words come up and if you miss them you can learn from your mistakes. If you play often enough the most common words will come out eventually, and you'll surely one day get to the point where y...
