Today I got to Genius and quit because I could tell it was a lost cause trying to get them all. At least now on the phone it displays "Solved" so you don't have to go back in and see if you're done for the day.


Yeah, I saw that today.  It is a valid word, just not one I use often as I don't really like clams.  They are quite popular in this area though, so I hear it in the summer pretty often.

That pangram was right there but I couldn't see it. Had the root hours ago.

You reached the highest rank, with 47 words and 147 points.
The pangram is weak and 3 perfectly cromulent words (PLAGAL, ALEE, GALAX) are not included.

Yeah I remember jouncing but this was more recent, even... a more modern word that the stodgy old audience just couldn't abide. 

I sometimes go to the hints/comments to see if there's more than one pangram etc., but I don't scroll down to where that one guy gives hints for every word because those are just spoilers. 


after i do my best on  my own, i only look for the hints one that is by KERRY D or something like that that give you the first 3 letters and how many words start with those 3 letters. i don't read the ones that read like crossword clues. ymmv.
