I just had my first Blue Diamond! I had no idea what those were until the WordMatch screen popped up. I average about 1 min. per WordMatch but I got so nervous with the blue diamond on the line that I CHOKED! 2 min. 19 sec. Ugh. That might be my worst time ever.

Thanks for letting me vent!

Rhayadar, I sympathize! After 3 months of playing WR constantly, I finally got a Gold Nugget screen yesterday... and blew it! I had enough time but I missed a couple of the words. All I can say is, keep playing, and you'll get another chance eventually. Back to the grindstone for both of us!

Thanks, Davy! Only 999 more WordMatches to go, eh? Say 'hi' to Goliath for me!

I think the 1-in-1000 theory is a myth. I played far longer than this, with no blue or gold chances. Meanwhile, I know people who've gotten multiple chances the same week. If 1-in-1000 is accurate, it may apply to all players at the same time. This might mean Sploofus presents several chances for gold or blue each day. Yet I've only seen 1 blue screen and 1 gold screen in 3 months of playing.... so who knows!

OK, time to feed and walk Goliath....

It's a myth!!!!! I have been playing almost every day and numerous times at that for the past year and not one blue screen has ever appeared. Perhaps my new computer having Vista has something to do with it. Another Vista bug.

Its a myth, I had not had either one for months and months then got a diamond one day and nugget the next!

I got a nugget very early on, then never had another one until recently. I covet the blue diamond. It's all random, like winning the lottery. So, good luck to everyone!

Are the nuggets and diamonds in both the word rounds and the word matches?
I have seen both in the word rounds and neither in the word matches.
Needless to say, I "blew" the blue diamond when it appeared. : (

You can get a chance at a gold nugget only in WordRounds and a chance at a blue diamond only in Word Matches.

I hope that helps!

Arrrrgh! I feel like Charlie Brown. Oh well, maybe this means I'm one of the lucky folks who get diamonds and nuggets more often than most? Or maybe I won't see either again for a year. Good grief!

So the gold and blue are all random things? I thought it was for doing well and making good time. So do you have to score a 100% or something?

The blue diamond screen is sort of cornflower blue (if you're familiar with the shades of Crayola crayon colors ), the gold nugget one is bright yellow outlined in red. It's a little disconcerting the first time you get one of the screens. I wasn't sure what had popped up. Anyway, for example, the gold nugget screen says: "You Have Just Found A GOLDEN NUGGET." Then below that, it says, "If you score 100% on this WordRound WITHIN 2 MINUTES, you get 100,000 SPLOOFUS POINTS!" So, yes, if you get such a screen, you need to score 100% with two minutes. So, be sure to slow down and take your time so you have a greater chance at 100% accuracy.

I hope that helps!

I have seen a Gold screen ONCE, and got so over-excited I blew one question. I have never seen anything resembling a Blue one.......ever!
I used to be a total WR addict, too.

I think it is every 1000 times.

so you could take one then 999 other people take one then you take one you will get a chance of a blue diamond same witrh the golden nuggets

I think it must be fairly random. One evening, I got a blue diamond. Barely a few minutes later, a person posted in the shout box that they had just gotten a blue diamond. There weren't too many users playing at that time, so it seems very unlikely that 1000 WM tries in total had been recorded between the time I got my blue diamond and the time the other person got theirs.

Anyway, my suggestion is to just play a lot and hope to get lucky. Even if you don't get a blue diamond or gold nugget, the WRs and WMs are still fun, and you learn new words all the time.

Never saw any of them, and don't believe that they actually exist! How you folks manage to paste those nuggets and diamonds on your profiles beats me. Been here over two years - no bling!

Maybe there's a secret code; linked to the number of letters in your alias; or your religion. Or birthday.
Or maybe Sploofus just likes you, because you dont complain?

Geri [Tresgatos] is correct with her observations.

I've gotten a few chances ; they seem to come randomly.

BUT- I've blown my last three chances- very frustrating!

I haven't seen any diamonds or nuggets since coming on to Beta- might be a coincidence or it might have something to do with it-not sure.

They can still show up on Beta.

I've been playing since December and I've had 2 nugget/diamond screens. The first one I had no idea what it was and thought I had to answer fast. The second I got. I'm a little frustrated since I've not had one now for several months!

I've gotten one of each and I use Vista, so that's not a problem. I sure haven't seen any since, tho! But then my friend has been a member since 2005 and has never seen any, so I don't feel so bad.

You get a golden nugget on word rounds and blue diamond on word matches.
I havnt had a chance of a nugget or a diamond for weeks

i just got a golden nugget

I have seen 2 blue diamonds

both in the old sploofus

one on a windows 98 (dial up mode)

also on windows xp hi speed

i both blundered them my first time i wasnt as good i was slower then 2 minuts and probaly not 100 percent

then 2nd time i just got on sploofus and it was 59 minutes after the hour so i quickly whent to word round mathches just to squeze some points in and a blue diamond pop up this time i knew what it was all about but i litteraly only had 10 seconds

so i took my time only a minute but it already expired so i didnt get anything (assuming i even got 100 %)

but today on beta (given) also on a vista

i got a golden nugget never saw this before

but i saw it and was taken back for a sec but then realized what it was and some miracle (maby a christmas one)

i somehow got 100 percent in 54 secs

i was sure i got one wrong

however i am living proof now they do exsist

so keep believing and one day it will happen.
