Word Racer Wrap Up

Alert ESPN. Someone call Will Shortz. The results are in from BdWs first officially sponsored event, the Word Racer Meet Up. The results are: FUN!

Four states from 3 time zones were represented by the full house in social lounge 6, including the trifecta from Jamaica Plain, MA. It was fast paced action with great performances by all. Highlights included "quieter", "sunset", "molten", and "emoted" from the Great Finds category. For Comical Inclusion, "shat", "booty", and "hooty" all deserve a mention. "Veg", "hoy", "wen", and "cole" top the list of Words I Didn't Know Were Words. As for the I Could've Sworn Those Were Words category, we'll leave those for insiders only.

A big thanks to all those who participated! Keep an eye out for WRMU II soon!

Too bad I missed out. If y'all could just have it a bit later (after 1am) or quite a bit earlier, say 9am) then I'd be down for joining. You'd have a 4th time zone in the mix. And then you could claim transatlantic championshipness. I played a few times online and found I'm not so good. I prefer boggle. But also fun is Yahoo Grafitti. It's practically like Pictionary/Win-Lose-Or-Draw. But different. How different, you ask? Why, it's different cause it's online. Plus you can use differently colored crayons to help get your point across.

Sadly, those look to be in order of score (me being at the bottom, as in last). I would love to participate in WRMU II, and I hope to have a better showing. We all really enjoyed the game, thanks for setting it up!

Yes, as for the "Could've sworn they were words", I think Dictionary.com and I are going to have to have a little chat before WRMUII.

Chris, websites don't have kneecaps, so to save yourself embarassment I recommend changing your intended tactic.

For those people that love word games (or need practice for WRMUII), check out this game. It is boggle meets tetris.
