Thanks Pat, maybe we could have more than one post to pick up the words we have missed.

Good game, I am always playing anagram games,and What's in a name game etc,games like that. I don't like cheaters anagrammers,they are a no go as far as I am concerned, and spoil games like literati and online scrabble.

Hi Gill,

I don't think you could have missed any!!! I did not check, however. I know I missed some very obvious ones. I can tell that you have EXPERIENCE. I have not played much!! I always liked to play "Boggle", so this is kind of like that. Do you like a game where you post a word, then make a sentence with all the letters? I think that is fun....I played it on another fourm a few times. We could start another thread????

It is a rainy day so I think I will take time to get to "transparent". Looks like a good word!
