BINGO BLOG #133 by Jeff Kastner

Phoenix Scrabble Club 123; Week #23; Meeting of Wed, March 4, 2020.

We celebrated the month of March with a birthday potluck. With the return of 80-degree days to Phoenix we also welcomed back Harry Decker to the “active” list. Harry will be playing at the Club regularly until he moves to Oklahoma in August.

The “Weekly Winner” was me, with 4-1, +465, and 14 bingos. I took “Bingo King” honors, “High Game” (519), and won the “Nightly Play” moolah. Sarah was next with 4-1, + 211, and 10 bingos. Other plus-scorers were: Larry, 3-1, +82, with 6 bingos; and Martin, 3-2, +122, with 5 bingos. Harry earned the “Double-Double” prize, while Karin had the “High Play” (113) and took home the “Low Win” gelt with a 350 game. Bonnie won money for High Game/Bottom Half (471). Satya’s 408 was the “High Loss”.

I’ll have more to say below about all the prize-winning bonus plays. As usual, your challenge is to solve the following quizzes, all based on Wednesday night’s bingos. The solutions are given at the bottom. Feel free to "LIKE" and comment here on Facebook.



Quiz #1: Let’s start the quizzes rolling with an elementary one. Satya bingoed with TORCHES, for which Larry’s report indicated there are 5 anagrams. Since the report didn’t list any of them, how many of the 5 anagrams of TORCHES do you know?

Quiz #2: Bonnie played EXALTER (one that praises, glorifies, or honors), and even drew a challenge! Perhaps the challenger confused it with the phoney “EXULTER”? In any case, can you find the 8-letter bingoes in EXALTER + C, + E and N?

Quiz #3: Harry earned the “Double-Double” prize for his 80-point bingo ARSENAL. These are common tiles so let’s test your knowledge of the 8’s. Can you find all the 8-letter bingos in ARSENAL + D, G, T, and Y?

Quiz #4: I played WANDEROO, an Asian monkey. Which two other 8-letter bingoes also end with the suffix -EROO?

Quiz #5: Sarah played APERIES, acts of aping. Larry’s report didn’t include any hooks, so let me ask you: What are the two front-hooks for APERIES?

I didn’t fail to find the natural FIASCOS, meaning: utter and complete failures or disasters. The singular FIASCO has two other plurals. FIASCOES is the obvious one, but do you know the other?

Quiz #6: Karin had the “High Play” with her 113-point JAVELIN. It’s a verb, meaning: to pierce with a javelin (a light spear). Aside from the -S plural, JAVELIN takes a back-hook -A for JAVELINA. Also known as a PECCARY, this piglike, hoofed animal can be spotted roaming freely around Fountain Hills, Arizona! For your next challenge, if you replace the ‘V’ in JAVELIN with a blank, what is the only other tile that makes a 7-letter bingo with the rack JAELIN + blank?

Quiz #7: I earned the “Nightly Play” money (including last week’s carryover bonus) for making the highest-scoring play containing ‘Y’ (in honor of our late beloved Club member, Yvonne “Bonnie” Redland) with my 73-pointer AROYNTS. It’s an alt. sp. of the more common AROINTS, a verb meaning: drives away or forces someone to leave. Can you uncover all the 8-letter bingoes in AROYNTS + B, D, M, and V?

Quiz #8: Martin played RUGRATS, defined as: children not yet old enough for school. It' even drew a challenge! RUGRATS happens to be the only 7-letter bingo ending with -RATS, but there are several 8’s that end with this suffix. How many can you name?

Quiz #9: Babs bingoed with SURREAL. What is the highest value tile that combines with the 7 letters of SURREAL to make an ‘8’?

Martin played the 8-letter bingo DITZIEST. How many 7-letter bingos can you think of that also end with the suffix -ZIEST?

Quiz #10: Satya bingoed with ENTIRELY, an anagram of LIENTERY (a form of diarrhea). Aside from ENTIRELY what is the only other ‘8’ ending with the suffix -IRELY?

Using the anagram LIENTERY, what is the only other '8' ending with -NTERY?

Quiz #11: Harry played ENAMOUR, an anagram of NEUROMA. Aside from the obvious -S hooks for these words, what is the only other tile that combines with the 7 letters of ENAMOUR to make an 8-letter bingo?

Sarah bingoed with VITAMINS, an anagram of NATIVISM. Aside from the obvious -S plural of NATIVISM, what is the only other tile that combines with the 8 letters of VITAMINS to make a ‘9’?

BVA’s only bingo of the night was RESEEDED, an anagram of DESEEDER. Aside from the obvious -S plural of DESEEDER, what is the only other tile that combines with the 8 letters of RESEEDED to produce a 9-letter bingo?

Quiz #12: Larry bingoed with UPSILON, a Greek letter, which anagrams to PULSION (propulsion). Using the plural UPSILONS, what is the only tile that combines with these 8 letters to produce a 9-letter bingo?

I found TONNEAUX. It’s one of the 2 plurals of TONNEAU, defined as: the rear seating compartment of an automobile. Using its other plural, what is the only tile that combines with the 8 letters of TONNEAUS to make a 9-letter bingo? (Actually, two 9-letter bingos!)

I laid down PHONATES (v., produces speech sounds). It’s an anagram of PHAETONS (light carriages) and STANHOPE (also defined as: a light carriage!). What is the highest value tile that combines with the 8 letters of PHONATES to produce a ‘9’?

Satya played VIOLATED, an anagram of the verb DOVETAIL. Aside from the obvious -S hook for DOVETAIL, what is the only other tile that combines with the 8 letters of VIOLATED to make a 9-letter bingo?

BONUS QUESTIONS: Let’s continue the “mnemonic phonies” theme from my last several blogs. To reiterate, these phony words (or phrases) are useful devices that can help spark one’s memory towards uncovering the actual bingos. For example: “LOINERS” = NEROLIS. Or, “BEANIEST” = BETAINES.
The following 20 words or phrases are “mnemonic phonies,” and this week’s theme is: “Contains the letters ‘M’, ‘A’, and ‘R’ for March!” For example: “CHOIRMAN” = HARMONIC and OMNIARCH (Yes, there are sometimes multiple bingoes possible, so be sure to find all of them!) I will include a 9-letter bingo at the end just for those Experts who find the 7’s and 8’s too easy.

Quiz #3: ARSENAL + D = ADRENALS (endocrine glands); + G = SANGREAL (alt. sp. of SANGRAIL, the legendary cup used by Christ at the Last Supper); + T = ASTERNAL (not connected to the sternum; it’s the hook for STERNAL); and finally, + Y = ANALYSER (alt. sp. of ANALYZER).

Quiz #4: Aside from WANDEROO, the two other 8’s that end with the -EROO are: BUCKEROO (a cowboy; also spelt BUCKAROO and BUCKAYRO) and JACKEROO (an inexperienced ranch hand; also spelt JACKAROO).

Quiz #5: The two front-hooks for APERIES are JAPERIES (mockeries) and NAPERIES (table linens).

Quiz #6: The rack JAELIN + W = JAWLINE.

Quiz #7: AROYNTS + B = BARYTONS (stringed instruments; the singular BARYTON also takes an -E back hook for BARYTONE, an alt. sp. of BARITONE); + D = TARDYONS (subatomic particles that travel slower than the speed of light; so, “party on, you tardyons!”); + M = STRAMONY (a poisonous w**d); and + V = SOVRANTY (it means: a monarchy, and a SOVRAN is a monarch; these words could draw a challenge cuz they almost look like horrible misspellings of SOVEREIGN and SOVEREIGNTY!).

Quiz #8: Here are all the 8’s ending with the suffix -RATS: APPARATS (political organizations); CONGRATS (congratulations!); MUSHRATS (alt. sp. of MUSKRATS) ; MUSKRATS (aquatic rodents); QUADRATS (in printing, these are pieces of type metal used for filling in spaces); WOODRATS (a North American breed of rats); and finally ZIKURATS (alt. sp. of ZIGGURATS and ZIKKURATS, which are: ancient Babylonian temple towers).

Quiz #11: ENAMOUR + T = ROUTEMAN, a person who conducts business on an assigned route.

VITAMINS + E = VITAMINES, the alt. sp. of VITAMINS.

RESEEDED + W = DEERWEEDS, bushlike herbs.

Quiz #12: UPSILONS + E = SPINULOSE, covered with minute spines. How fitting that the combining tile for UPSILONS is an ‘E’ since EPSILONS are also Greek letters!

If you guessed PHONATES + C = CENOTAPHS (empty tombs), nice try, but incorrect. The answer is + Y = PANTYHOSE. By the way, neither PANTYHOSE nor its alt. sp. PANTIHOSE, take an -S plural.

VIOLATED + B = BLOVIATED, a verb, meaning: spoke pompously.

Phoenix Scrabble Club

BINGO BLOG #132 by Jeff Kastner

Phoenix Scrabble Club 123; Week #22; Meeting of Wed, Feb. 26, 2020.

After a two-week “wellness break” the Club reconvened. We all seemed to be shaking off the rust…everyone, that is, except for Sarah King, who scored a perfect 5-0, +181, and 6 bingos. Gary was next with 3-1, +14, and 3 bingos. His score of 301 earned him the “Low Win” gelt. The only other plus scores were by Satya (3-2, +119, and “Bingo King” with 11) and Larry (3-2, +31, with 6 bingos). Satya also captured the “Double-Double” prize, while his 391 was the “High Loss”. BVA had the “High Game” (528), which earned her the “HG/BH” money. Larry had the “High Play” of 94 points with a phony. My dismal 2-2 score with 8 bingos was nothing to write home about, except I did manage to have the highest spread (+327). Nobody captured the “Nightly Play” prize (contains the letters Y, B, H, in honor of the late Yvonne “Bonnie” Redland), and so it will double in value next week.

I’ll have more to say below about all the prize-winning bonus plays. As usual, your challenge is to solve the following quizzes, all based on Wednesday night’s bingos. The solutions are given at the bottom. Feel free to "LIKE" and comment here on Facebook.



Quiz #1: Babs bingoed with SEIGNIOR, a feudal lord. It takes both -S and -Y hooks. Let’s start things off really easy by asking: How many 7’s can you uncover from within these 8 very common tiles of SEIGNIOR?

Quiz #2: Let’s devote this 4-part quiz question to our “Bingo King”. Satya cleaned out the “Double-Double” pool with his bonus play NEONATES, defined as: newborn children. What is the only 7-letter bingo possible from within the 8 letters of NEONATES?

Satya also played TONALITY, a system of tones. It takes an A- front-hook for ATONALITY, the absence of or disregard for an established musical key for composition. The word ATONAL is derived from it and means: lacking ATONALITY. What is the only bingo in ATONAL plus a blank?

Finally, Satya laid down ANALOGY, one of the two hooks for ANALOG. If you replace the ‘G’ with a blank, what is the only other bingo in ANALOY + blank?

And, if instead, you were to replace the ‘L’ with a blank, what is the only other bingo in ANAOGY + blank?

Quiz #3: Babs played PODESTA, an Italian magistrate. These are common tiles, so let’s test your knowledge of the 8’s. Can you find all the 8-letter bingos in PODESTA + E, H, I, L, N, R, and T?

Quiz #4: I played the natural ATABRINE, a drug to treat malaria. What is the only 7-letter bingo possible from within the 8 tiles of ATABRINE?

Quiz #5: Sarah got away with the famous phony . I can't tell you how many times over the past decades I've seen that phony played (and unchallenged), along with another well-known one: . They are so phoney, in fact, you can’t even play them in Collins games!

So, let me offer some advice. If you have the tiles BE***RS on your rack, look for an L, O, S, T, or V on the board to make a legitimate 8-letter bingo? Your task: Find these five 8-letter bingoes.

For extra credit: What is the only tile that can combine with the tiles of BEANIER to form an acceptable 8-letter bingo?

Quiz #6: With a rack of OVERSEA, Gary found a ‘Y’ on the Triple row and bingoed with OVEREASY (too easy!). If you replace the ‘A’ with a blank (resulting in OVERESY + blank), what is the only other tile that makes another 8-letter bingo? (I expect some very colorful responses to this one!)

Similarly, if you replace the ‘O’ in OVEREASY with a blank (resulting in VEREASY + blank), what is the only other tile that makes a different 8-letter bingo? (I’ll say reluctantly that it’s not very easy!)

Quiz #7: I played BEIGNET, an alt. sp. of BEIGNE, a type of fritter or doughnut. Aside form the obvious -S plural, what is the only other tile that combines with the 7 letters of BEIGNET to produce an 8-letter bingo?

For extra credit, what are the 7-letter bingoes in BEIGNES + W, and BEIGNES + U?

Quiz #8: Without a spot to play his natural WRINGED, Larry spotted a floating ‘S’ on the board and bingoed with REDWINGS. Unlike the NHL hockey team from Detroit (spelled: Red Wings), the Scrabble version is “for the birds”, defined as: European thrushes. Aside from red, which other colors can act as a prefix for -WINGS?

Quiz #9: Gary played ISLETED, the adjectival form of ISLET, a small island. Interestingly, it’s a homophone of EYELETED, one of the two past tenses of the verb EYELET (defined as: to make a small hole). Besides ISLETED, which other 7’s can you think of that also end with the suffix -LETED?

Quiz #10: It was great to see BVA back in action again. She played energetically by laying down TIREDLY. What is the highest value tile that can combine with the 7 letters of TIREDLY to produce an 8-letter bingo?

Babs bingoed with SEDILIA, an anagram of DAILIES and LIAISED. SEDILIA is the plural of SEDILE and SEDILIUM, which both mean: a church seat used by officiating clergy. What is highest point tile that combines with the 7 letters of SEDILIA to make an ‘8’?

Bonnie played TREACLE, defined as: molasses. What is highest point tile that combines with the 7 letters of TREACLE to make an ‘8’?

Quiz #11: Sarah found the nice bingo CURFEWS. I recall reading decades ago that the term CURFEW comes from the French phrase “couvre-feu” which translates to “cover fire”. It originated from a law made by William the Conqueror that all campfires had to be covered by a certain hour to prevent the accidental burning down of wood buildings. Take a “few” moments to think about this one: Aside from CURFEWS, what is the only other word in the Scrabble Dictionary that ends with -FEWS (or even -FEW, for that matter)?

Martin bingoed with SOUARIS, which are tropical trees. Which other 7’s can you think of that also feature the exact same ‘OUA’ vowel pattern?

Quiz #12: I phonied with instead of the valid bingo in these tiles: GANGRELS (meaning: vagabonds). What is the only tile that combines with the 8 letters of GANGRELS to produce a 9-letter bingo?

Larry played CUSTARDS. What is the only tile that combines with the 8 letters of CUSTARDS to produce a 9-letter bingo?

I played PLEBEIAN, an uncommon bingo that means: a commoner. Aside from the obvious -S plural, what is the only tile that combines with the 8 letters of PLEBEIAN to produce a 9-letter bingo?

Sarah played HONORARY which is a noun defined as: an honor society. What is the only tile that combines with the 8 letters of HONORARY to produce a 9-letter bingo?

BONUS QUESTIONS: Let’s continue the “mnemonic phonies” theme from my last several blogs. To reiterate, these phony words (or phrases) are useful devices that can help spark one’s memory towards uncovering the actual bingos. For example: “LOINERS” = NEROLIS. Or, “BEANIEST” = BETAINES.

The following 20 words or phrases are “mnemonic phonies,” and we’ll continue with this month’s theme: Contains both the letters ‘F’ and ‘E’ for February. For example: “FELT HEMS” = THEMSELF. Note that there are sometimes multiple bingoes possible, so be sure to find all of them!

QUIZ SOLUTIONS:

Quiz #1: Starting with SEIGNIOR, here are all of the possible 7’s: ERINGOS (alt. sp. of ERYNGOS, defined as: medicinal herbs; ERINGOES and ERYNGOES are also good); IGNORES; IONISER (takes an L- front-hook); IRONIES; IRONISE (takes -D and -S back-hooks; but, like IRONIZE, it does not take an -R hook); NOISIER; ORIGINS; REGIONS; SIGNIOR (an Italian title of courtesy for a man, it takes -S and -Y back-hooks; also spelt: SIGNOR, which takes -A, -E, -I, -S, and -Y back-hooks); SIGNORE (does not take an -S plural; the anagram of the oft-played phoney “signores” is GORINESS); and finally, SIGNORI (one of two plurals of SIGNOR). Did you get the majority of these 11 bingoes?

Quiz #2: From within the 8 letters of NEONATES, the only ‘7’ is NEATENS.

ATONAL + I = ALATION, the state of having wings. You should be aware that it takes an H- front-hook for HALATION, a blurring of light in photographs.

ANALOY + M = ANOMALY.

ANAOGY + G = ANAGOGY, an alt. of ANAGOGE, a spiritual interpretation of words.

Quiz #3: PODESTA + E = ADOPTEES; + H = POTHEADS; + I = DIOPTASE (a mineral); + L = TADPOLES; + N = NOTEPADS; + R = ADOPTERS, PASTORED, and READOPTS (takes a P- front-hook for PREADOPTS); + T = POSTDATE (Does not take an -R back-hook, but the bingo in “postdater” is TETRAPODS).

Quiz #4: ANTBEAR is the only ‘7’ possible. It is defined as an aardvark.

Quiz #5: BE***RS + L = ENABLERS; + O = SEABORNE; + S = BARENESS; + T = ABSENTER (a noun); and + V = VERBENAS (flowering plants).

BEANIER + G = BERGENIA (like VERBENA, it's also a flowering plant).

Quiz #6: The rack OVERESY + D = OVERDYES (v., dyes with too much color).

The rack VEREASY + L = AVERSELY (adv., reluctantly). Did either of my “hints” help you any?

Quiz #7: BEIGNET + L = BEETLING, a verb meaning: jutting out.

BEIGNES + W = BEESWING (a crust that forms on old wines);

BEIGNES + U = BEGUINES (defined as: lively dances; also spelt: BIGUINES))

Quiz #8: There are two other colors that can precede the suffix -WINGS. WHITEWINGS are types of doves, but in the 19th Century WHITEWINGS were street sweepers who wore white uniforms. GREENWINGS are small, short-necked river ducks of Europe and America.

Quiz #9: Three other 7’s also end with the suffix -LETED: DELETED, FILETED (also spelled: FILLETED), and VALETED.

Quiz #10: If you said ‘C’ for DIRECTLY…nice try, but wrong! The combining tile with the highest value is: TIREDLY + V = DEVILTRY (defined as: mischief).

If you found SEDILIA + M = IDEALISM or MILADIES…nice try, but incorrect! The combining tile with the highest value is SEDILIA + F = SALIFIED, verb/past tense, meaning: combined with salt.

If you found TREACLE + K = RETACKLE…nice try but tackle it again! The right answer for the combining tile with the highest value is TREACLE + X = EXCRETAL, an adj. pertaining to EXCRETA (excreted matter).

Quiz #11: Of course, we all know that FEW does not take an -S hook. Aside from CURFEWS, the only other bingo ending in -FEWS is FEVERFEWS, which are perennial herbs. I see bottles of FEVERFEW regularly whenever I browse the vitamin supplement aisle in supermarkets.

There are five other 7’s that feature the same ‘OUA’ vowel pattern as Martin’s SOUARIS bingo: BIVOUAC (v. to make camp), GOUACHE (a method of painting), OUABAIN (a cardiac stimulant), TATOUAY (a South American armadillo), and ZOUAVES (French infantrymen).

Quiz #12: GANGRELS + A = LANGRAGES, defined as: shots formerly used in naval warfare.

CUSTARDS + T = DUSTCARTS (garbage trucks).

PLEBEIAN + G = BELEAPING, meaning: leaping upon.

HONORARY + U = HONOURARY, which unlike HONORARY, is NOT a noun!



ANSWERS TO BONUS QUESTIONS:

FEED LAMB = FLAMBEED

FERN DOC = CORNFED

FERNAGE = FREEGAN

FEW MISDO = WIFEDOMS

FIDGIEST = DIGESTIF

FIEFIST = FIFTIES, IFFIEST, STIFFIE

FOUR USES = RUFOUSES

FREE HICK = KERCHIEF

FREE TORY = FERETORY

FREED TEN = DEFERENT

FREED YOU = FOUREYED
