I have not played in a long time but prowling around I found this list and it is a thing of beauty.  My goodness.

Thanks, Sarah.  The answer list is quite impressive, if I say so myself.  As you can see, we've been very, very busy.  Come back and play with us sometime.

I think that even Will Shortz, the crossword editor of The New York Times and former editor of Games Magazine, would be impressed with our amazing Answer List. He is the only person in the world to hold a college degree in Enigmatology, the study of puzzles, which he earned from Indiana University in 1974. Perhaps one of our playerz will be the second person to hold such a degree. After 178+ rounds, any one of our playerz would certainly qualify.

Will Shortz? Will Shortz?? Sounds suspiciously like our own Mayor Will in one of his many enigmatological disguises!! BTW, has anybody seen Wordplay, which is supposedly based on the life of Will Shortz??

Annie Proulx used about 2475 words to write the short story "Brokeback Mountain".  We are now in round 232; so we have used up more than 6040 words to highlight some details of her story.  Annie used one "Z" word "zone", but oodles of "S" words -- many of which are still unplayed here.

I would like to take this chance to wish Annie Proulx a "Happy Birthday" -- she turns 71 on August 22, 2006 -- and to bring more beauty to the ABCz Answers Played List. 

I am proud to see that you have taken my suggestion about calling the ABCs the ABCz, Will.

Glad to bring even more beauty to this list.

I'm sure this has been viewed many more than 10,000 times since post number 1 has been revised constantly and we all check it every time we play a word (always, without fail, religiously!!) Thank you from the bottom of my dictionary Will, Fran, and Sandy, for this Brokeback Bible, dictionary, and guidebook all rolled into one! It is a work of art!!

May 2019 be better for us all.

"Z" Problem
« Reply #45 on: August 30, 2006, 09:41:06 pm »
As of tonight there was a problem with adding Z's, and in the process we lost some of them so that they are not all there.  We will be posting a bogus "Z" in this upcoming round- just leaving a space for it to be filled in later.  The Administrators have been notified and we are waiting for them to get back to us.

Due to the space limitations on individual posts, it was necessary to split the "ABCs of BBM" Answers List into two separate posts:  "A" to "M" words and "N" to "Z" words.

Gamely,
Will, Fran & Sandy

I like this Answerz List it help me learn English better, but some words here are funny and weird.
Are you funny and weird people I think.
