Ivan Dunt

Ivan Dunt Happy to be here on this list at last

Ian Volante

Ian Volante Erm, fail on the >200 rounds though!

Ivan Dunt

Ivan Dunt Perhaps, it is unclear

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison i will never ever get anywhere fucking near this list

Matt Hamer

Matt Hamer I think a +most disallowed words+ list would be interesting. I would be near the top of that, with all the pencil-mining and foreign language play I partake in.

Ivan Dunt

Ivan Dunt This is so pleasing

Karen Pearson

Karen Pearson I agree Matt B - I'd be in the same boat. Might be interesting to split it by language (just in case Charlie is sitting around wondering how to fill his time!).

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison Charlie's said before he'd never do stuff like "most disallowed words" - yes they'd be some pencil miners and some foreign language people up there but other than that this sort of page just highlights the so-called 'bad' players, and that's an awful thing when it comes to encouraging newbies to keep playing.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams Yep, what my secretary said ^

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison <3

(by the way i haven't been paid yet. please get someone on to it.)

Jim Bentley

Jim Bentley I'm handling Charlie's payroll atm Matt, just PM me your bank account details and mother's maiden name and I'll get it sorted.

Karen Pearson

Karen Pearson I really meant splitting the fewest disallowed list by language as I suspect my Spanish disalloweds is around 25% whereas I'm hoping my English disalloweds is a lot lower!

Karen Pearson

Karen Pearson But I should say 1.4% from Rich Priest is stunning!

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams Well, that depends. It's pretty easy to get 0% if you're not worried about winning.

(BTW splitting by language is a good idea KP, I will do that.)

Adam Gillard

Adam Gillard Impressive, Marcus.

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills I don't know how I am in the top 7!

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills I don't know how I am in the top 7!

Adam Gillard

Adam Gillard Still incredibly neat and tidy, Marcus.

Marcus Hares

Marcus Hares Unfortunately my average maxes per game is on the decline so while this may look good, my game is getting worse if anything... still nice to be top of the list for something though :)

Andy Platt

Andy Platt this list should be renamed Least Ballsy

Joyce Phillips

Joyce Phillips That's me!

Michelle N

Michelle N 236th, 22.8%. I like to make words up.

Jon O'Neill

Jon O'Neill Hahaha, amazin.

Kirk Bevins

Kirk Bevins Does this include goatdown then since that's English. That will explain the high percentages for some of you as you guess long words for pencils

Michelle N

Michelle N I'm a total pencil whore so hopefully that does explain it.

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison 227th, 15.8%

Miriam Nussbaum

Miriam Nussbaum Or Omelette, for that matter? And does this also include "not in the selection" errors, or just non-words?

Adam Gillard

Adam Gillard Current top 2 are doing well to avoid declaring US spellings!

Jack Hurst

Jack Hurst Haha. Though they have gone to 2 & 3rd because of Steve.

Julie McCarthy

Julie McCarthy I thought Steve was American, or does he just live in the US? He certainly had time zone issues when we played tourney games.

Jack Hurst

Jack Hurst D'oh

Steve Balog

Steve Balog Thanks for jinxing it, guys

George Ford

George Ford 16%!!!!!!! I wish there was a leaderboard for the most disallowed

Andy Platt

Marcus Hares

Marcus Hares For some reason I don't mind that Aaron is at the top of this list ;)

Andy Platt

Andy Platt Marcus in 1st and 4th

Andy Platt

Andy Platt Ey, snap.

Adam Finlay

Adam Finlay Took you 11 seconds to post "Ey, snap" Personally, i'd say that wasn't snappy. ;)

Anthony Endsor

Anthony Endsor So technically, I'm joint 3rd :)

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck ODE or ODO?

Ian Volante

Ian Volante Yep.

Anthony Endsor

Anthony Endsor A bit of both I think

Marcus Hares I'm more impressed that you've played over 10,000 rounds in 3 months - that's mental!

Mark Mills

Mark Mills Thanks Anthony but you played a lot more rounds than me, Marcus, Tracey non stop practice forhger appearences on the show, i hardly seen her...lol

David Barnard

David Barnard Whatever works I suppose and it looks like it definitely has

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills I need a life over 10,000 games !

Bradley Horrocks

Bradley Horrocks Under 10%, achievement unlocked!

Andy Platt

Andy Platt Robin M, master of validity

Mark Mills

Mark Mills Close second for me very surprised as I risk many :)

Bradley Horrocks

Bradley Horrocks They are clearly calculated risks Mark :)

Liam O

Liam O Does this include words disallowed because the letters weren't there or simply because the "word" wasn't a word? Does anybody know?

Graeme Cole

Graeme Cole It just says "disallowed", so I would assume that means disallowed for any reason.

Andy Platt

Andy Platt If it was just because the letters weren't there, the statistics would be a lot lower. I'd go with Graeme on this one.

Liam O

Liam O It actually also mentions ODE in the Page Title so I'd beg to differ. I would hope that it only counts non-words rather than misspellings or phantom letters.

Liam O

Liam O although :)

Graeme Cole

Graeme Cole How would it tell the difference between a non-word and a misspelled word, if it's not a phantom letter?

Show all comments
Liam O

Liam O If the word is valid but the letters aren't there then it would be disallowed but not ODE-wise. That's one discernment at least. It's not as clear cut as it may seem.

Mark Mills

Mark Mills I never risking anymore words so I can stay top :) :) :)

Rhys Benjamin

Rhys Benjamin I am 7 off the bottom here. Ah.

Mark Mills

Mark Mills Rhys I was top until I played to many risky words :)

Miles Elliott

Miles Elliott 238th/238.... Maybe I should stop trying so many risky words for hopeful pencils lol
