Same rules as usual...

COME ON IN AND HAVE SOME FUN. IF YOU PLAY, BE SURE TO CHECK BACK REGULARLY TO SEE IF YOU HAVE WON, OR IF IT IS YOUR WORD - TO UPDATE FOR OTHERS. :)

Great job Revo, you won with one of my favorite game stoppers.... Love to toss in those Z and X words. They don't get much play.

I guess I will toss in a word for the next game as it appears you two have anagramed this to death.

But each of the Ns were from different posters so therefore they were two different letters being considered. The word having two Ns is being credited with the 2 letters as each was from a different poster. Or something like that- where is Merv Griffith when you need him....

Thanks for explaining that, revo. It has been a question in my mind for a long time.
What you are saying, if the word has the same two letters, if one is placed, then another one can be submitted. But if it is not placed, then a word with the same two letters must be submitted.

P E N E T R A N T [JM, you shouldn't have given Sody credit for finding a second N, because the first one wasn't placed yet, and he didn't have two Ns in his word.]

JM says that word is SCRIMSHAW as she took classes in it but it was not her cup of tea. She has an artist friend who made us a lovely scrimshaw piece we have hanging right beside where I am. Her friend used old piano keys (white) for her work. I have seen SKRIMSHANDER which is the Dutch spelling.

I'm doing this off my cell phone, so cloying all the guess words is too much work.
