Is everyone ready for another game where you can win a $5.00 coupon to spend in the GDS store?
I'm sure that you have all played this game at some point.
If you haven't here is what you need to do.

All you have to do is make words from (the saying below). The words
must be at least 5 letter words, no names please and you can’t use the title words…can’t
do the singular and the plural please (i.e.—gift and gifts) and you can use the letters
only once for instance the e can be used only once because there is only one e the c can
be used twice in a word because there are 2 c’s in the title. If you have
any questions don’t hesitate to ask and please PM your answers to either gigichet or emst.
You have until the 18th to PM Gwen or Elaine your answers. Whoever makes the most valid words wins.
Thank you for playing and HAVE FUN…

Merry Christmas from Go Digital Scrapbooking

only once for instance the e can be used only once because there is only one e the c can
be used twice in a word because there are 2 cís in the title.


Do you mean for the whole game, or per word? Can I use the letter 'e' one time in several different words, or once I use the 'e' it is gone forever?

You can only use the letter "e" for instance only once in one word. You can use the letters in several different words. If there is more than one letter in the quote you can use that letter more than once in your word. There are three "o" in Merry Christmas godigitalscrapbooking so you could use the letter "o" three times in one word.

I now have over 1000...I keep thinking of words in my sleep, showering, getting the girls ready for school ...everything I read...heck, even browsed the store last night looking at kits and came across some I didn't have yet... orange and spice :) the possiblities are endless!
thankfully I'm doing it in alphabetical order..because I can't remember all the ones I've come up with!

Is anyone else out there playing besides me and Kathy?

make that over 1300! (who is going to check this list? :)

KattyZak
12-14-2007, 01:57 PM
Anita, you crack me up. I've only added a few.
Should have started alphabetically, too, because I wonder about that, too.

12-14-2007, 02:04 PM
I just feel I have to keep going...someone might have more :) you never know who's lurking out there! haha

now I just hope I remember to send it to Elaine!

12-14-2007, 02:06 PM
You girls are cracking me up with this. Gwen and I thought there would be maybe a 100 or so with them having to be at least 5 letters long. Goes to show our intelligence. Are you two sleeping with a dictionary? Like Holly I'm going to sit back and let you have at it. Send your lists to Gwen, don't tell her I told you that though. LOL

okay I finally got a break from playing with Caleb and ummmmmm Elaine you have been busted. Maybe if we both add up the words we can come to a grand total. Boy it sounds as if you girls are really going to town on this one. Have fun...

emst
12-14-2007, 05:42 PM
Go ahead Anita I'll let you email me. PM me first so that I can give you my email address.
Did you see I got busted by Gwen?

I did the same thing, Anita! I was working on the list while watching Survivor, and listening intently to see if anyone said a word that would work, LOL!

LOL..yeah, we were watching a movie and words kept jumping out at me! Hubby looked at me and said "and you wonder why I don't want to play Scrabble with you anymore?!" LOL...he got tired of losing ... I think he's only ever one once (and he's a bright guy)

Miss Anita, tell me, what are your numbers? Wasn't sure I was going to play along but here I am with my huge list. My DH thinks I am nuts and DD ha thrown a word or two out there, but they both think I am nuts and I am beginning to think I am too.
DH as well as anyone else around here won't play scrabble with me...they won't even play upwords,
I think it would be so fun to get together and compare words...come to think of it, I don't have compare..ha ha~

Katie has been playing along with me and came up with my biggest word yet.... prestidigitation .. from a 7 year old!!

12-16-2007, 11:09 AM
Wow over 2,000 words, you really are addicted and then you pull poor Katie into it, obviously though for her to come up with a word like that she is enjoying this too. Oh boy, how many emails are you sending me with this list?

gigichet
12-16-2007, 12:20 PM
WOW....my hat is off to you. 2000 words and you are still playing. You are gonna have to do these in alphabetic order so that you don't do duplicates--that is unless your memory is better then mine is.

emst
12-16-2007, 05:11 PM
Wow, 2000 words, might take a day to look through them all. I bet at this rate even when the words are sent in you'll still be playing.

Drum roll..........
Counted my words today when sitting down to Survivor's 3 hour finale. Up til now I have been eyeballing them.
And it was
.
.
.
1735.
So, back to work. Having a hard time remembering what words I have used and not used...yegads....
Got a lot more words over the next 3 hours but mind you, I had to recheck, recount and my new total is
1968.
So, I concede to you, Anita!
I know there are many more words out there but I have to move on and I know I could not type all those 1968 words.

KattyZak
12-16-2007, 10:33 PM
OK. I guess i wasn't done.
I added 112 words but I know one of mine, highly, isn't right.
So that puts me at 2079 or 2080.
My favorite word this time was dipstick.
And for Elaine...shrimp, shrimped and shrimping. :0

lol..I know I keep saying I'm done and keep coming up with more words too...I'm close to 3000 now! Katie sat with me earlier and she kept finding more words that I hadn't!

It is an obsession...lord only knows how much time I've spent on this...all for a chance at $5...yet KattyZak, Erin and I are ALL Supremes...we could have been scrapping and getting FREE kits!!! LOL... I know I'm competitive but this is crazy...

and hmm, not sure what my favorite word is yet..chocolate? raspberry? yum! of course Shrimp, garlic and pasta are good words too :)

and macaroni, rigatoni, mostaccioli...and oregano, basil, rosemary, parsley.... I was on a food tangent last night!

KattyZak
12-16-2007, 11:16 PM
I love when you share your words. As I add another 36 words...what is that? 2116. Yes, we are crazy. OK, now I am stopping.
Missed garlic, pasta but had a lot of the noodles, dang, there is one, noodles, and missed all of the spices.
But mostaccioli, whatever that might be, has 2 c's.
Best word on this last jaunt was frantic and thats what I will be, frantic, if I keep going and not keep up on seasonal preparations.
This has been way too much fun.
Seriously, I am not fuming but I am drained and might get diarrhea and spasms as I edit this report while I search DD's stomach ailments. Her discomfort might be a habit and needs to be tested, and medications prescribed or I will get the tingles.
Most of the bold words were my last 36.
Forbid, her ailments don't require a colonscopy.

ETA colonscopy haS 2 C's...ok, where did the u in fuming come from....I am so done. lol

I just emailed it to you but realized I used my home email address, not my yahoo account.....so please let me know if you don't get it. I tend to use my yahoo address for all my digiscrapping stuff...as that address never changes :) but let me know if you don't get it as I'm not sure if you have a spam filter..I can't imagine what it would think of this list! haha!

2 C's? OMG. I so missed that but it doesn't matter as I couldn't come up with anther 1300+ words...well, maybe I could, but it would take way too much effort. Hardly thought of a word yesterday.
The good thing is I was so worried about DD's stomach ailments and was fearing it might be an appendicitis attack...it was just cramps. What a relief.
Anyways, very fun little, I mean very big game.
Congrats to you Anita.
