IS THERE A TIME LIMIT ON WORD PUZZLES ??

Sorry to monopolize space in the forum but I just saw something unreal. A player who played last night's Word Puzzle used 5,929 seconds, that's over an hour and a half, WOW. Is there a time limit or are we allowed nap time if we get confused.??

I think you might have until 8:14 a.m. or 8:14 p.m. (before the bonus points message is sent out at 8:15).... Which would mean that theoretically you might be able to play for 12 hours and 14 minutes, but I've never taken that long!

I have played long enough that it seems to log me off when I submit my final answer -- it displays the WP starting screen rather than the WP leaderboard. Which is scary, like my answers weren't recognized. But then when I log back on, my score is displayed, so it's OK.

A couple of weeks ago I got distracted in the middle of a wp, came back to my computer a few hours later and it was still up so I finished it in over 5000 seconds. Same thing probably happened to the player you're talking about.

I've seen a few over 10,000. I think Randy fell asleep once and ran into 5 digits. If you manage not to get logged out I don't think there's any limit.

I have had the odd nap while doing Wp's, Donna, a girl's gotta get her beauty sleep I wouldn't worry too much about times on Wp's, at least 3 to 5 times a month I cost myself top 10 finishes because I'm so slow. If I'd just quit doing laundry, baking & going to the potty I'd be faster. I need to get rid of my phone, front door & the kid & hubby too, all big time wasters while doing puzzles. My typing & proof reading skills cost me a lot of time too, & they don't even always work, I've mistyped my way out of the top 10 at least 4 times this month alone. Dang it, if they'd just had Sploofus when I was young, I coulda been a contender

I went to bed and left a puzzle up overnight once and it was after 9 when I found it so I was already booted - it must've been 6 hours. Would've been fun to post that one.

I complete my daytime Mon-Fri puzzle from work and may get interrupted. This happens to me on quizzes too.

Wouldn't ya know it, long phone call during WP today & I cost myself 4 moves with an extra space. Can't win for losing
