Excellent game, but hard! I had 118/297. I just love word games.

I love these games. Any chance we get a 7 letter one? :) btw it's amazing that you fit all the words into a quiz (well 2 quizzes this time). I think you skipped 'indian' in the dictionary because it's not accepting that as an answer
Jul 13th, 2011 at 20:27 GMT
Thanks. Glad you like them. A 7 letter version would be ~ 192,232 characters long and would need to be spread across 3 quizzes. I'll leave it up to commenters to decide if they'd still enjoy it split up that much or if I should just leave it here. I know when I tested this one I found myself occasionally guessing words in the wrong half of the alphabet and that would be even more likely with only a third of possible words to guess each time. Indian presumably won't be in the dictionary as it is a proper noun. I've double checked on http://scrabbletools.appspot.com/ which confirms it isn't valid in Scrabble anyway.

I have enjoyed these quizzes as well, and will play any you publish, but I think you serve us best by breaking it into smaller chucks. The slow reaction time of the quiz was a real problem for me in this one. Thanks for taking the time to put these together.

Ah I was thinking indian could be a word in the same sense that cowboy is a word, but I guess that isn't so. I can't argue against scrabble.

great game, @bazmerelda! It's too bad that I didn't have enough time to complete it, so I only got a few answers. One answer that didn't work, though, was munchy. I am almost 100% sure it is a real word, I'm 100% sure that it isn't already included in an answer that I already said, and I'm 100% sure that it is within the A-M letter range. I know that this quiz must be a real pain in the butt to check, since there are soooo many different answers within other answers. I give you credit for having the patience to make all of these quizzes like this! And you're right, the slowness of the quiz due to the many answers is rather bothersome and takes away from the good of the game.

If it were up to me I would tend to agree that munchy is a valid word. I'm sure I've had cause to use it on occasion. It doesn't appear it Merriam-Webster or any of the other four dictionaries TWL is comprised of though, so I can't accept it. It isn't even accepted in the more comprehensive SOWPODS which brings together American and British English. 'Munchies' on the other hand
a valid word but is of course a couple of letters too long.

Its too bad not many people have played this. It was a lot of good work!
Jul 22nd, 2011 at 13:46 GMT
I love your word quizzes. I took me several tries, but I finally got all of these, still need to reach that with N-Z. I would love it if you did 7-letter words!
Jul 27th, 2011 at 04:58 GMT
You forgot 'eskimo'.
Jul 27th, 2011 at 09:44 GMT
Eskimo won't be valid for the same reason Indian isn't. It is a proper noun for a particular race. Inuit isn't accepted in Every 5 Letter Word either.

@bazmerelda I have a program that should be able to generate the data files for any number of letters ... are you interested in me running it and giving you the resulting files for 7 letter words? It only takes a few seconds to run it.
Aug 10th, 2011 at 19:06 GMT
Thanks for the very generous offer. You're most kind. I've already got the 7, 8, 9 and 10 letter words ready in an Excel spreadsheet. I'm just waiting to see if there is any interest in 7 letter versions of the quiz. It's useful to have it all in Excel because it just makes it really easy to format all the words into something which can be copy & pasted straight into Sporcle so that the quiz works instantly.
Aug 10th, 2011 at 20:06 GMT
No problem ... my program generates a text file with each line in the format aaa-bbb/aaa/aab/aac/bbb, which makes it easy. I look forward to the 7s, 8s, and beyond!
Aug 12th, 2011 at 04:24 GMT
I’d love to see a 7-letter version. However, I would suggest you split them into more quizzes than is strictly necessary. As in, go for somewhere around 150-200 answers per quiz. That way people will have a decent chance of getting close to done before the time expires. After all, quizzes are much more fun where you’re racing to get the last few answers before time expires.

7 Letter versions now released
I've reduced the total number of answers down to ~250 due to the increased difficulty and how slowly these longer quizzes are running for some people.
Oct 28th, 2011 at 10:13 GMT
These quizzes are amazing. I have just managed to complete this one after goodness knows how many attempts. Those starting K seemed to be hardest seemed to be hardest. Now t o the seconfd half.............................

I like these games, but usually give up after a certain time, not because I can't think of any more words, but I tend to get bored of it after a while.
Jul 28th, 2012 at 20:41 GMT
it's missing too many words
Comment below threshold:
Jul 29th, 2012 at 12:35 GMT
Unfortunately I have to agree with OldSpider - I spent a good couple of minutes re-typing words until I realised that it just wouldn't accept them. Some examples include tigers, tubers and regret.
Jul 29th, 2012 at 14:40 GMT
@alistardragon: it clearly states in the title, words "A-M"
Jul 31st, 2012 at 19:23 GMT
Very nicely done.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 17:17 GMT
Finally completed this one too. Yay me.
Sep 4th, 2012 at 17:36 GMT
Me too, atuin. It took me enough tries.
