Still getting in some Scrabble, usually to wind down for the night after a long evening of studying for my LVMT and CSCS certifications. The following is my bonus word list for May 2016 from games I played on ISC.ro. Blanks are not recorded. A complete list of bonus words played can be found here.
Sevens (55): AEFAULD, ALERION, APAREJO, ATTENDS, BEASTIE, BROMATE, CABRIES, COGNATE, DARNERS, DAYTALE, DEFILES, DELTOID, EMICATE, ENCRUST, ENVENOM, FLOATED, FORTUNE, GURAMIS, HENRIES, HIDALGA, IMPREST, INANELY, LACIEST, LOWBROW, MYRIADS, NATURAE, NIDGETS, NIOBATE, OPERANT, ORIGAMI, OUTFISH, OUTLEAD, OUTLIED, PARRIED, PATSIES, PETNAPS, RAYLETS, REMOUNT, RITUALS, RUBEOLA, RUNDLED, SEPALED, SIMPLEX, SOOTING, SPORULE, STOUTEN, TEARILY, TOSTADO, UNFREES, UNITIVE, UNMEWED, VENTRED, VIZORED, WINDORE, WOOLIES.
Eights (45): AGENESIA, AGENETIC, ARBORISE, ARISTATE, ARTESIAN, CLINGING, DONARIES, DOWELING, DUBITATE, EINSTEIN, ENDIRONS, ENGAOLED, ENSNARER, EUROKIES, FORESEEN, GENTIEST, IONISING, LAMINATE, LINEABLE, LORINERS, MANNERLY, MAUNGIER, NARCEINE, ODONATES, OUTTAKEN, REPTILIA, RESURVEY, RETELLER, RETIARII, SIDECARS, SIGNIEUR, SILENCES, SNIRTLED, SPOILAGE, SPUTTERS, STEAMERS, TESSERAE, TETRONAL, TOHEROAS, TRIFECTA, TRILBIED+, UNDINTED, VIAMETER, VOLPLANE, ZINKIEST.
I didn’t play any nines this month, nor did I miss any. Unusual that no nines opportunities presented themselves all month. TRILBIED+ was my only new CSW15 addition. Six words this month are repeats: CABRIES (now played three times), ENCRUST, FORTUNE, UNFREES, SNIRTLED and TOHEROAS. A complete list of repeated bonuses can be found here.
I found 85.5% of my best bonuses this month (up from my usual 81.7%), which makes me happy. My missed bonuses in May are as follows:
AMORANCE, ANEMOSIS, BUGABOOS, EYEGLASS, FAIRYDOM, FLAGRANT, GORSEDDS, HOROPITO, ISOBARE, MEGADOSE, REMUEUR, ROADKILL, SALTERY+, SEMBLED, SOMEDEAL, SUNBERRY, UNFLASHY.
ISOBARE is my only Tier One miss this month, though my goal is to miss zero. Most of these were findable for me; I just have to pay more attention to the board and clock so I don’t rush an inferior play. A complete list of missed bonuses can be found here.
