Yes, I can. Seraphim, I6.

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 something else! And for B and J, any vowel other than A won't impact any other circles - it's entirely internal to the circle.

To find 'seraphim', I wrote out the letters I had available to me:


Then I looked for a sound that could end a word. '-dim' sounded promising, or something with a -p at the end... it was pretty much luck that I chanced on '-phim', which led to my word.

  • A point to you. ^_^Huinesoron, Wed Dec 16 10:50
    Hardric - 2 Huinesoron - 2 Iximaz - 2 Now I wonder if I can do something with that -jbj-... hS

      • 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?

              • Must admit...Hardric, Thu Dec 17 08:23
                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

                      Keychain for C5 Magic for H5 Banjo for G9.
                      • You can have 'Banjo'.Huinesoron, Fri Dec 18 11:23
                        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
                        • "Axolotl" in... uh, the circle below "library" and to the left of "sacs". *crosses fingers and hopes this is a legitimate play*
                          • I wish. :-/Huinesoron, Sat Dec 19 06:48
                            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
