There were 17 players in attendance when we last met on December 11, 2014.

Congratulations to Steven G. for having the high-above-average game last
week, in which he scored 462, 39.5% above his average.

High scores: Steven S. 552 and 505, Joel 534, Don 533,
             Bob B. 526 and 520

High losing score: Judy H. 421 to Steven S. 505

These are the words challenged or considered last week:

DEY, YOP, AHID, ARAL, CYAN, HISN, PLEX, REVI, VINA, CARTA, CARTE, ACUTED,
AIOLIS, AXILES, BREVES, PIROGI, QUICKY, WOMANS, CANNERY, HADDERS, JETISON,
LUGGIES, NEWBIES, NEWSBIE, OUTRISE, ARIETTES, BREWINGS, CLAYIEST, MISTERED,
PRETIDES, ROTTENED, TRADINGS, TRISPEED, DEGREASED
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
DEY (DYE), (ALAR), CYAN, HISN (HINS SHIN SINH), PLEX+, (RIVE VIER), VINA
(VAIN), (CARAT), CARTE (CARET CATER CRATE REACT RECTA TRACE), AIOLIS,
BREVES, PIROGI, WOMANS, CANNERY, LUGGIES, NEWBIES+, (NEWBIES+), (STOURIE),
ARIETTES (ITERATES TEARIEST TREATIES TREATISE), BREWINGS, CLAYIEST,
(DEMERITS DEMISTER+ DIMETERS), (PREEDITS PRIESTED RESPITED), (PREEDITS
PRIESTED RESPITED), DEGREASED


Once again, Joel played a game in which he played five bingos; these were:
GALEATES (accepted phony with an acceptable anagram), MINGLED,
PRATTInG, OVeRVIEW, SEMANTIC.
  
DRY + LEIS makes an uncommon OWL2 seven; Collins is the same.

YARD + ALE makes a common OW2 seven; Collins is the same.

SOLARIAN is unacceptable in OWL2, OWL3, and Collins, but it has an
8-letter anagram which is an uncommon word. The part of speech of that
word may surprise you.


In a recent message on CGP, Ron McGill, a.k.a. Zax, asked this riddle:
What word starts with an E and ends with an E, but has only one letter.
