Just to get things rolling…
Same. In less than 5 minutes. Happy with that.
Ditto. Happy to be done, but sorry I missed continuing the diabolical incubus thread from last week 😈
Yep, this was mine, too—and it looks like more folks found that one than the official.
Noticed today that LB accepts BEAUCOUP. Wouldn’t have thought it.
I got this too~
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like, ‘What about lunch?’”
—Winnie the Pooh (an occasional cupboard devil)
Official, which will be hard to beat for both efficiency and TI. Nice shout-out to Pooh, MVUA!
Although Birds Aren’t Real, I spot Oriole, Dove, Corvid, Plover and Roc (which definitely isn’t ).
If anyone wants to branch out into dogs, which ARE real, I’ll get the ball rolling with Bouvier.
Actually the first thing I thought of when I found proverbial lucid was DW. I had found plover on my way, and was inspired to direct my; proverbial pearls; my lucid loquaciousness, towards the uplift of his project. By writing something that would make no sense at all and just confuse the entire enterprise. Hence:
A bird in the mind, is worth at least 2 round the box.
So there you go, wasn’t very good, and now you see why I went with Pooh Bear. Cheers to the birds.
Don’t forget the DODO! ORIOLE, unfortunately, doesn’t work because R and I are on the same side. If we allow double letters, today’s puzzle also yields COLLARED DOVE, BARRED DOVE, and PALLID DOVE. Oh, and another PRIVERBIAL – LUCID here.
I think you mean PROVERBIAL, eh DW? As you know, it takes a lot to get past my eyes. 😉
My phone needs a bigger keyboard…
Too right about Oriole, my error… Missed the Dodo! People say they’re extinct, but that makes no sense because they never existed in the first place.
Nice product placement for Doordash and Ubereats…
(Accepted “proverbic” even though I don’t think it’s a legitimate word.)
CUPBOARD DEVIL here.
I’ve noticed recently that another thing I do when I find a two-word solution, is guess what I think the chances are that it’s the official one. This time I figured there were probably several other two-worders out there, but thought that CUPBOARD-DEVIL nevertheless would have a strong probability of being the official, and was pleased to find myself correct on both counts.
Symmetric Quads: ↘️
The Orc likes Letter Boxed! He shows up often.
I’ve been trying to stick with only mono-syllabic words, but didn’t quite make it there today with ‘diver’. I’ve also learned quickly that it’ll take a lot to rock a full sestina. She doesn’t kiss on the first date. 🙂 You have to bring her gifts, like a valiant suitor.
AREAL, CODEC, CODED, CODER, CUBED, CUBOID, DECODE, DECOUPLE, DIODE, DIVIDE, DUPLE, IODIC, OVOID, PARABOLIC, PARABOLOID, RADAR, RADIAL.
An effortful PABULAR – REVOICED 15/2 (and I can’t stress ‘meh’ enough). CLIPBOARD proved a huge time-waste, eventually shutting me out vis-à-vis the official solution, too. Other finds include CUPID, (RE)COUPLE(D), VERBAL, ADVERB(IAL), DIABOLIC, PREVUE, COVER(ED), OVERBOARD, OVERLOAD, PUBIC, CLOVER, PICUL, PUBELAR. I also had LABIOVELAR, BIOVULAR, BROADPIECE, and OILCUP(!) disallowed (I’d run that last one past DW, in particular).
A mediocre 7½ for LBF (7 out of 12 letters correctly guessed), and I’m sticking with the same one:
NFH AOD GLI SPU.
PROVERBIAL – LUCID showed up quickly, after I stopped trying to use CODPIECE.
As for fauna. . . There’s the generic dog, Rover + the more specific LAB(RADOR). Rail is for the birds. 🙂 And although we’re leaving DW some slim pickings, I suspect he has more birds up his sleeve.
Wondering when the moderator will let me post here… Have I done something wrong?
Squirrel Gourmet? 🙂 🌳🐿
I have proverbial and lucid
From time to time, I wonder if the creator of this website realized how the forum would pinball off in dozens of directions–that just playing Letter Boxed is far too simple, and commenters would mine the possible words for thematic integrity, maximum efficiency, humor, etymological tidbits, poetic forms and inspiration, names of birds and dogs, and who knows what next?
Perhaps, given human nature, that was inevitable.
I agree that the plain-vanilla Letter Boxed is far too simple; especially now, after a year of playing it, and learning the ins and outs.
The creator(s) of this website remain a mystery though. There’s no way to contact them directly, there’s no 800 number, and there’s no support email address displayed anyway. It’s a closed system. For awhile I was thinking it was a bot laboratory. 🙂 The site is hosted in Germany somewhere I believe.
Personally, I’ve taken the game in different directions for my own enjoyment; triplets, quads, rhyming, etc. I would welcome what you’ve suggested. Kick it up a notch! There are LB forums on Reddit and Facebook too, but they tend to be a bit watered down, creatively. Thanks for your thoughts.
PROVERBIAL…I guess I’m the only one who used LUDIC instead of LUCID?
OVERPRODUCED – DIABOLIC
Great TI there, Tim! A shout-out to Phil Spector?
Didn’t have much time today, settled for 3 words: PARBOILED DULCE EVE (or EVER)
Proverbial and lucid as well and as they well should be
PROVERBIAL – LUCID
Got hung up on parboiled and clapboarded and diabolic and bucolic for ages!
overproduced – diabolo
Official, after coming up empty with RECOUPLED, BELOVED, and getting annoyed at UPLOADER/REUPLOAD not being allowed. Almost jumped on CUPBOARD – DELIVER before taking the extra minute to root out official. 😈
Couldn’t get it before the coffee ran out, so I redoubled my efforts with a glass of red wine and finally came up with PARBOILED – LUCID. I don’t think I’ll start off with the wine in the morning, but…….
I may start posting all the ones I come up with that miss by one letter though!
And, I did chuckle when I started finding birds: PLOVER, DOVE, PIPER. Maybe I’ll branch off into mammals next: VOLE, DE(E)R (if you’re allowing doubles), COLLIE…
Gotta make dinner!
