Although I agree there are probably people who cheat, not everyone does. For example, I used to groom dogs and I have seen almost every breed there is. Another thing i would suggest is look at the word puzzels as a process of elimination, or deductive reasoning like Sherlock Holmes used. Also luck guesses never help. I write possible solutions out on paper to make sure the letter sequence correct. As for cheaters, it is written that a man's sins shal (eventually) judge themselves. Just have fun. Make it fun by competing against your personal best. At least that is more fun for me anyway.

The people with the best scores usually know how to work their search engines to the max. I don't understand why WordPuzzles can't be where you don't have to type at all. Simply click on all the letter's in the puzzle and the Mensa, 11 move group, could still win based on speed. It would be the same basis as WordRounds. Then we all could be on to complaining about something else.

On a soap box sounding much like Al Gore or Pee wee Herman,

Gee, what puzzle did you have? Mine had all very common dog breeds, nothing obscure.

I so blew it on that one! I did know all the breeds (except for the last one.) Only when I tried to solve "2" of them I had typos!!! Grrr.

Mine were fairly common breeds except for a nasty mis-spelt one (

I only had one uncommon breed, the other four probably all live with our subdivision. I thought it was pretty good, even though my score was mediocre.

"sucked"? Ouch. That's pretty harsh to the Word Puzzle creator. Why don't you submit your puzzle suggestions to Sploofus support if you have better ideas?

I'm a vet so I particularly enjoyed this one. None of my five were obscure breeds. And I should have done better.

I had also heard of all the breeds I received. I think the idea of the different categories is to appeal to lots of different people. With a variety of categories you will eventually get something you know about. I know I hated the trigonometry one the other day because I had never heard some of the terms before, but there were many who were excited because they DID know the terms and had an advantage for a change.

Plus with terms that are not so common, it seems it would be harder for those who research the answers to find them.

None of mine were as bad as the answer to an old quiz: "bagful of cheeseburgers."

I am also glad to see a lot of variety in the topics. I do them all, and some words might as well be ina foreign language! But I like to see the variety of names at the top of the leader board for the more obscure topics!

And, although 'bagful of cheeseburgers' is not a phrase I use daily, I do remember growing up in the midwest...when my dad would take the whole family to the drive-in movies we would stop at White Castle and buy a bag of cheeseburgers to eat during the movie! I'm pretty sure that was how they priced the bag! They were little mini-burgers; I believe today they are called 'sliders'.

Hey Apatchee, if you don't know anything about the topic, just don't take the puzzle. That's what I do. For instance, the trigonomerty one. When I went to school, that wasn't even a required subject. I know I know nothing about it, so I left it alone. Wouldn't that be a better option than getiing all worked up because there are some people who DO know about that subjest. I doubt there as any single subject out there that every person on this site would be expert on. How is Sploofus supposed to pick subjects for new puzzles if he has to worry about there being a memeber with no knowledge on that subject?

I do all the word puzzles, no matter what the subject. I figure I might learn something, and I'm gonna get at least 200 pts no matter how terrible I do. Ronkon has the right idea; just go for your personal best and don't worry about who's cheating, etc. Life's too short, dude.

I had one obscure breed, but my score way marred by 4 typos!! Yes, 4 of them! Oh well, I thought it was fun even though I finished in 85th place! LOL!

No results found for "dalmation"

We didn't find a match on "dalmation," but we found the following alternate spellings for you. Click one to continue your search.

It took me awhile to figure out what a dalmation is....but since the puzzle is all about dog I guess it was just a typographical error. Fun quiz! Thanks!

I agree with you Leah. I take all the puzzles even though I may not know much about the subject. I may learn something new and have fun at the same time.

Is there a problem with the spelling "dalmation"?? I thought a dalmation was a large spotty dog.. Perhaps they are more common here in Australia. I worked out that breed fairly qickly.. I also had a German Shorthaired Pointer when I was a child so that was easier than usual for me too... :D History (by way of points and my moaning comments in many forum threads) will show that I generally suck at word puzzles, but yay, this one wasn't too bad.. :D:D:D
