Re: [Game] Word Hunt Diamond - Game 14

Thank you @Cleoriff 

This is the first - out of 14 games so far - in which the players have not only completed the game in under 12 hours [most taking considerably longer] but smashed that - by finishing the game in 9 hours 31 mins [from time the grid was posted to time of post with the last word in the grid].

ADVANCED NOTICE:

 

With the Advent Calendar due to start, the Word Hunt Diamond will be taking a short break.

But worry not word hunt diamond fans, the Word Hunt Diamond will return on Tuesday 31 December

- with an "end of the year" special, which will be the biggest, toughest challenge yet...

 

Spoiler
The target is 90 words, with one 9-letter word and 6 8-letter words in the list in the source used for this game. There is no "S" in the diamond to make plurals. There is a less common letter as the red letter.

 

FUN FACTS AND FIGURES:

So far, there have been 14 Word Hunt Diamond games.

A total of 14 members have taken part in one or more Word Hunt Diamond games: thank you

@Cleoriff ; @pgn ; @Bambino ; @gmarkj ; @Bob_Mcg ; @EmilieT ; @Marjo ; @WispaRed7 ; @jonsie;

 @TallTrees ; @JAZZ-trad ; @MI5 ; @AnnieM ; @Dothrakigirl19 

Over the 14 Word Hunt Diamond games, 948 words in the target list have been found; plus 259 words not in the list - a grand total of 1207 words in 14 games.

 

It has been an absolute pleasure to organise and run the Word Hunt Diamond games, which - as long as you want them - will continue...

 

Although it is perhaps a little early and premature but I would like to take this opportunity to present a new Word Hunt Diamond. It is not a game or a puzzle but a message to each and everyone of you

Woops... well if I`m gonna make a mistake might as well make it a big un...

In fact, the game did not break the 12 hour barrier but took 1 day 9 hours 31 mins...

So far, no game has been completed in less than 12 hours from time of grid being posted - so that`s another challenge...

I`ll go and sit on the Naughty Step [now it`s being cleaned]
