Round 4 - 'Library' in D5.
Tue Dec 15, 2015 04:54

I've also added greytext to ALL surrounding circles, because why not? Some of them have one modifier, some have none. (And remember that those letters can be changed! In that 'BB--TA' up in D4, for instance, either of the 'B's can become a CH, D, F, G, or H, and can take any vowel except A.)

Hardric - 1
Huinesoron - 2
Iximaz - 1

Board is open.


  • Very nice!Huinesoron, Mon Dec 14 15:06
    Nothing can go in G6-NW, because it would slip into the middle of 'sacs'. Putting anything in G6-N means working around that -TAJ above it. And as you say, putting anything in G6-S might activate the ... more

      • If nobody else is trying it...Hardric, Tue Dec 15 05:28
        Data in G7, South, since it would be the only position working here.
        • A point to you!Huinesoron, Tue Dec 15 05:56
          Since the -J- in H7 doesn't include a modifier, you could've gotten away with putting the 'DA' in G7-SE, but this position works just fine. Hardric - 2 Huinesoron - 2 Iximaz - 1 Board is open.
          • "Bile" in C4?Iximaz, Tue Dec 15 22:16
            Assuming that works. I'm just flailing at this point. XD
            • Uh... C4?Huinesoron, Wed Dec 16 03:31
              C4 currently contains 'TTO-'; since there's no way to alter vowels, I'm pretty sure that doesn't work. The only place I can see that 'Bile' could fit is G5. hS
              • Oh oops. G5, then.Iximaz, Wed Dec 16 09:28

                  Hardric - 2 Huinesoron - 2 Iximaz - 2 Now I wonder if I can do something with that -jbj-... hS

                    Hardric - 2 Huinesoron - 3 Iximaz - 2 The trick is remembering that consonants are not fixed . If you've got an unmodified consonant (B, J, T, or TH) in your prospective circle, you can change it for ... more
                    • You mean H6, right?Hardric, Wed Dec 16 12:33
                      As for my move, would 'battle' in G8 work?
                      • Oops, yes I do.Huinesoron, Thu Dec 17 06:07
                        And unfortunately not - it would need a T in G8-N, which would inject a T into 'Data', making 'Datat', which is not in the OED. hS
                        • Okay.Hardric, Thu Dec 17 06:19
                          Would 'ball' work, then?

                              I'm not exactly comfortable with changing lettrs, because I'm always thinking I'll screw up something. Besides, I never really played Scrabble a lot before, and I never played it in foreign language... more

                                But oh well, as they say. If you'd like, you can offer multiple words at a time - one (or more) with changed letters, and then a 'safe' option at the end. I'll run through the list and see which ones ... more

                                  Though I did spend a lot of time trying to squeeze in another tile in F5-S; I found a way to make it work for 'sacs', but then realised I was reading 'photo' wrong. (The only reason I look like I... more

                                      For the others, take a look back at the chart in the first post . A consonant can only be changed to another one that uses the same base tile. So, for instance, in C5 we have a 'Y' (fine, you used... more

                                          That would be an awesome move. But unfortunately, 'A-XO-LO' needs three slots before the -TL-, and there's only room for two. :( (Also, one would have to slot in in such a way that it would stick on... more

                                            I would like to place 'keystone' in C5. En Taro Artanis.

                                              I've left the gap at the top, because otherwise C4 would read 'TTO--TA', with both vowels as modifiers, and would have to be a word. Hardric - 5 Huinesoron - 4 Iximaz - 2 Board is open. Ix, fancy... more
