It is a very nice word. You may be able to improve it still if we have a second challenge round.

The first round of challenges is well underway. Here's the list of games if anyone wants to watch.

Now, unless there are strong objections, we will have a second round of challenges. In this round anyone can make a challenge, even if they have seven letters already. However, only letters that were already challengeable can be challenged. Nobody can touch your protected list, or your two free vowels, or any letters that you won in the first round of challenges.

Also, since this second round wasn't in the originally published rules, and is something I added later, I am naturally vulnerable to arguments that there has been too much tinkering with the rules, and it should be dropped. If there is an upswelling of objections to having a second round of challenges, I will drop the idea.

If there are no objections, please go ahead and post your challenges.

Do the phases repeat themselves? Or is it whoever gets the best word this time wins?

If there is a second round of challenges, it would be the last.

After that the best word wins.

If not, then the best word wins right now.

I won't be doing any further updating until Saturday, so you have plenty of time to decide.

Good luck!


To everyone else: if you intend to make a challenge in the second round, please post it by noon Saturday. On the other hand, if you object to there being a second challenge round, please post your objection by noon Saturday. On the third hand, if you see yourself getting challenged, please save me a step by deciding ahead of time what map you wish to defend on, and post it by noon Saturday.

Saturday afternoon I will hope to create any challenge games (if required.)

I'm not sure what time zone you are in for noon. It's before noon here still. How many challenges am I allowed to pose? Can we get updated list on available letters? Last i saw Y and W were still free and i would like to challenge for those. But if we can make more I would want to challenge for K, F or T. Let me know the status.

UPDATE: First and foremost I would like to challenge Y and W, if more challenges are allowed i would like to challenge for B and K

The four games in the first challenge round have ended.

xSekirei won an S from Ir1sh Ace and a K from SirSebstar. DoomYoshi won an L from chapcrap. SirSebstar defended his S from rmjw10 in an absolutely amazing come-from-behind victory!

Yeah, it was pretty wild. You were losing, losing, losing.... and suddenly you won.

Unfortunately I don't know the map, so I don't fully understand why. Cashing second in escalating certainly made a difference, of course, but it wasn't enough to explain it.

It was wild, And I am not sure if rmjw10 would care for me explaining it.. still I’ll give it a shot and remove it if he asks/tells me so.. be warned!

General info: Stalingrad has several bonuses, in area’s, autodeploying snipers and regions.. Stalingrad has a large area that can be bombarded from either planes or more localized from anti aircraft guns..

Start of the turn:
rmjw10 gets the drop and deploys on an aircraft. Not the best choice to lump it all together, spreading out would have been better, but as it turned out he did quite okay!.
He dropped 8 and proceeded to bombard 6 countries and then take the 6th in conquest..
That’s killing 24 dice with only 8.. impressive!
After that, things went down pretty fast…

To paraphrase Dakusaur, I was loosing, loosing loosing..

However I have played the map before and I can find my way around it. rmjw10 had the highground but he failed to take out all of my airplanes and AA guns first. I was faced with a conundrum. Do I gamble on even better dice or do I hide?
I had an okay drop position, but I was in mortal jeopardy after turn 1. I decided to hide. I split my forces to try to attack the 3 snipers I could reach, and dropped on the airplanes to kill the troops rmjw10 had that could also reach my snipers. 4-1 4-1 4-1. 2 failed!! I made a 3-1 effort and succeeded once.. rmjw10 had nothing on my dice… ;-)

I now had 2 snipers which give a +1 each. In effect I managed to get 6 more territories that could only get conquered and not bombed. This is where it went wrong.

rmjw10 had the major upper hand, he got more troops per turn then me, even with my trick, and he could freely deploy them. He proceeded to beat the bejezus out of my remaining troops. He succeeded too. When you read he took 5 of my terits and I managed to take 4, you got to know he took out 5 area’s with a 3 troop compliment and I took out 4 singles…
However here the differences came in. I attacked strategically, causing to show less and less targets for him to aim at, and removing him near area’s I needed to protect, so when he did move for my snipers he had to cross area’s I could easily bomb. Which he tried to do (and one successfully) but I bombed him into oblivion and took it back..

This happened back and fro a fair bit. But I have the strategy to wait and hang in the corners.. He could not get to me everywhere, but I could get at him. So I proceeded to bomb those locations that were of importance to me. E.g. because they could reach area’s I could get a bonus from. I then created the bonus. He tried to accost it. He had to traverse multiple regions of neutrals to reach it, and he kept breaking me, however each and every attack focused him on an attack course against me, and I could easily bomb most of the locations he kept coming though so I could much cheaper kill him, then vice versa.

In the end that was the clincher. I could reach him, he could not reach me. He has been trying to just kill me with his bare hands. I evaded him. Drew him to where I could attack and destroy he active troops and immobilize the rest. And once I started building my bonuses his chance to do the same was over.. There are various locations that can be bombed and a few that cannot. I was unreachable for him. My bonuses secure behind a wall of neutrals.

Then the cards spoke. He had no trouble with his sets, but every set of his could be replied to by me, so in effect he build up no strategic position and I had mine already.

Truly a WII worth battle.

Recap: he had a tremendous first turn and great dice throughout the campaign, but he failed to properly capitalize on the numerical advantage. If he had take the locations I had taken, but sooner, I would have been powerless to counter it..If he had simple hunted wherever I took out neutrals, he would have succeeded and I would have lost a save haven and likely the game.
Special note: It was not bad play by rmjw10. It was a general kind of play not geared towards the special map he was playing on. In that respect I was lucky to have played the map before.

My game on the King Count however was an equal first and second turn disaster. No good dice for me, my opponent getting the first drop, great dice and grow from there. There were no locations for me to hide, but when I was ready to take out a wing of his troops with 16 of mine, I lost 16-3.. ouch…if I had played average dice, I think I could have won the game in overtime too..

Moral; take me out soon, because if you wait, ill come back to kill you… ;-)

I assume you were following the game?


Yeah, it was pretty wild. You were losing, losing, losing.... and suddenly you won.

Unfortunately I don't know the map, so I don't fully understand why. Cashing second in escalating certainly made a difference, of course, but it wasn't enough to explain it.


It was wild, And I am not sure if rmjw10 would care for me explaining it.. still I’ll give it a shot and remove it if he asks/tells me so.. be warned!

General info: Stalingrad has several bonuses, in area’s, autodeploying snipers and regions.. Stalingrad has a large area that can be bombarded from either planes or more localized from anti aircraft guns..

Start of the turn:
rmjw10 gets the drop and deploys on an aircraft. Not the best choice to lump it all together, spreading out would have been better, but as it turned out he did quite okay!.
He dropped 8 and proceeded to bombard 6 countries and then take the 6th in conquest..
That’s killing 24 dice with only 8.. impressive!
After that, things went down pretty fast…

To paraphrase Dakusaur, I was loosing, loosing loosing..

However I have played the map before and I can find my way around it. rmjw10 had the highground but he failed to take out all of my airplanes and AA guns first. I was faced with a conundrum. Do I gamble on even better dice or do I hide?
I had an okay drop position, but I was in mortal jeopardy after turn 1. I decided to hide. I split my forces to try to attack the 3 snipers I could reach, and dropped on the airplanes to kill the troops rmjw10 had that could also reach my snipers. 4-1 4-1 4-1. 2 failed!! I made a 3-1 effort and succeeded once.. rmjw10 had nothing on my dice… ;-)

I now had 2 snipers which give a +1 each. In effect I managed to get 6 more territories that could only get conquered and not bombed. This is where it went wrong.

rmjw10 had the major upper hand, he got more troops per turn then me, even with my trick, and he could freely deploy them. He proceeded to beat the bejezus out of my remaining troops. He succeeded too. When you read he took 5 of my terits and I managed to take 4, you got to know he took out 5 area’s with a 3 troop compliment and I took out 4 singles…
However here the differences came in. I attacked strategically, causing to show less and less targets for him to aim at, and removing him near area’s I needed to protect, so when he did move for my snipers he had to cross area’s I could easily bomb. Which he tried to do (and one successfully) but I bombed him into oblivion and took it back..

This happened back and fro a fair bit. But I have the strategy to wait and hang in the corners.. He could not get to me everywhere, but I could get at him. So I proceeded to bomb those locations that were of importance to me. E.g. because they could reach area’s I could get a bonus from. I then created the bonus. He tried to accost it. He had to traverse multiple regions of neutrals to reach it, and he kept breaking me, however each and every attack focused him on an attack course against me, and I could easily bomb most of the locations he kept coming though so I could much cheaper kill him, then vice versa.

In the end that was the clincher. I could reach him, he could not reach me. He has been trying to just kill me with his bare hands. I evaded him. Drew him to where I could attack and destroy he active troops and immobilize the rest. And once I started building my bonuses his chance to do the same was over.. There are various locations that can be bombed and a few that cannot. I was unreachable for him. My bonuses secure behind a wall of neutrals.

Then the cards spoke. He had no trouble with his sets, but every set of his could be replied to by me, so in effect he build up no strategic position and I had mine already.

Truly a WII worth battle.

Recap: he had a tremendous first turn and great dice throughout the campaign, but he failed to properly capitalize on the numerical advantage. If he had take the locations I had taken, but sooner, I would have been powerless to counter it..If he had simple hunted wherever I took out neutrals, he would have succeeded and I would have lost a save haven and likely the game.
Special note: It was not bad play by rmjw10. It was a general kind of play not geared towards the special map he was playing on. In that respect I was lucky to have played the map before.

My game on the King Count however was an equal first and second turn disaster. No good dice for me, my opponent getting the first drop, great dice and grow from there. There were no locations for me to hide, but when I was ready to take out a wing of his troops with 16 of mine, I lost 16-3.. ouch…if I had played average dice, I think I could have won the game in overtime too..

Moral; take me out soon, because if you wait, ill come back to kill you… ;-)
