Word games

rhodri linked to Weboggle, which is hardly fair, especially while I'm still training to be a fighter pilot.

Weboggle = Boggle on the web. I'm....all right at it, actually, thanks to all the practice (practise? you know, I really don't care. Practice and licence can bugger off.) I had with spiderpixie when we played Fowl Words and Yahoo Word Racer, which doesn't currently seem to be working.

I like Typer Shark too, but I'm too good at it, so one go takes me a good hour. Which isn't handy, at work.

It's "practice". As well you know. :P

I knew it had a c when it was being a noun, and I *thought* it was being a noun there *sigh*

(I mucked up licence again yesterday and dermfitz took the piss, hence my paranoia :))

Practice and licence are actually very easy. Replace them with advice/advise and see what it sounds like :)

I just got 10 seconds with the square. Last time I played it, this morning, I got about 0.5.

Hmm, yeah, Typer Shark could occupy me for far too long. Arg!!!

I was just about to say exactly that about 'advice' and 'advise'! Good to see you spreading the word, though - it's such an easy rule, and more people should know it. :)

I'll be spreading the word, too. I like that rule.

Whoah, that's genius. TV advice, TV advising. It works! I am forever in your debt...

Ooh, that's a good way to remember - I always get c/s words mixed up.

Woah, I am crap at weboggle. Maybe I've too dismissive of word searches all these years ...

It's a specialist skill set - the ability to look at one possible word, say "eat", and instantly type in "eat ate tae eta tea".
