OSKI record
  • Richard Malaschitz ★ at 2010-08-11

    58 points vs 57 points


  • Michal Piszczalka(piszczyk) at 2010-08-11

    11 :P

    even I have 9 letter word ;D

    mine :D

  • Michal Piszczalka(piszczyk) at 2010-08-11

    ohhh :P full score? in this first one it will be a record anyway ;)

  • MarleysGhost ★ at 2010-08-11

    Tarrocks? Haftarot? Haftaras? Stockist? Where do these words come from? Rockshaft?

    Last time I asked such a question, Ray Garrison pointed out that Scrabble players know a lot of arcane words.

  • kingofthebesI at 2010-08-11

    I have an 11 letter word and 62 points score I could have score more on the final play but I had already won so didn't spend long searching for perfection.


  • Paavo Pirinen at 2010-08-13

    Michael already linked your game. Maybe there aren't any other 11 letter words played yet. I find playing “begalling” at move six at least as astounding as the 11 letter word. Managing to get the maximum score at any particular round later than, say, round 4 is awe inspiring.

  • kingofthebesI at 2010-08-19

    Sorry didn't notice the link.

  • Richard Malaschitz ★ at 2010-08-20

    There are two 11 letters words:

    APPARELLING in game #1222478

    RESCATARIAN in game #1224040 (Spanish)

    And there is twelve 10 letters words.

    Two games #1222288, #1222478 have winner score 62. Game #1222288 has sum of both players 118 points - this is next record. There is only 5 games with more than 110 points.

    I must admit that I do not know what a ROCKSHAFT is… It just seems to be in the list of strings recognized as words. This is by the way one aspect I hate in these word games.

    But I like OSKI very much, because can feel like it stimulates my brain.

    …and I r e a l l y wanted to beat michael in that game… :-D

    66 points in game #1230186

  • kingofthebesI at 2010-09-11

    [game;id:1230409;move:16] 67 points and BELEAGUERED

  • Gregorlo at 2010-09-17


    114 points, not bad :)

  • Ed Collins at 2010-09-17

    113 points isn't bad either.


  • Gregorlo at 2010-09-18

    ouch, yes, silly me…. it was 113 points :)

  • somar96 at 2010-09-30

    this is funny, I just learn German at school and I don't speak much, yet I managed to win a game against a native speaker, getting 44 points while my record in Enlish is 48 in 25 games. looks like in German it's easier to find long words :)


  • MarleysGhost ★ at 2010-09-30

    Yes, German has the best long words, like “Strassenbahnhaltestelle” for the English “tram stop”.

  • kingofthebesI at 2010-11-13


    116 points.

  • kingofthebesI at 2010-11-13


    116 points.

  • michael at 2010-11-13


    If my opponent would've made a word like “strangers” in his last move, we would've had a combined score of 123 (63-60).

    Sadly he could only come up with “so” for a 2-point finish.


  • Gregorlo at 2010-11-13

    i had no motivation for looking further ;-)

  • beppi at 2010-12-01

    Link to my personal record :-) 122

    Of course, this match has been some how “drugged” because the same letters could lead to many similar words, but we absolutely didn't try to make any sort of record.

  • beppi at 2010-12-01

    Uh by the way it also contains the 11-letters word “RITRATTARSI” :-)

  • Aganju at 2010-12-01

    does Italian use any other letters than ERIAOTS? ;-)

  • michael at 2010-12-10


    126 points

  • Aganju at 2010-12-16

    is this a new record (and we did fight, not cooperate)?

    [game;id:1274394;title: 139 points]

  • beppi at 2011-03-22


    124 points

    139 is nearly unbeatable, maybe 124 is the Italian record.

  • Aganju at 2011-03-22

    I would expect German to be the best for records. They build new longer words simply by concatenating two or more existing words.

    Or maybe Hungarian? they have incredibly long words to begin with, and then build conjugations, prepositions, and cases by attaching more letters ('agglutinative language'), like 'megszentségteleníthetetlen'.

  • chianti at 2011-03-27

    Congrats Aganju, good spelling. And the word 'megszentségteleníthetetlen' is not just made up, it actually means something: 'the one that cannot be desacralized'. it would be fun to have Hungarian version word games here.

  • Aganju at 2011-03-27

    my wife is born Hungarian. So… to know what mother-in-law says, I needed to pick up a bit… ;-)

  • Nevermind at 2011-12-20

    112 points is higher than average, but not even close to the best. I just wanted to see if I know how to insert the board:





















  • Nevermind at 2011-12-20

    [Next time I will find out how to align it to the center.]

  • Andreas Bleck at 2011-12-20

    I found a 13-letter word once, which seems to make me the record holder in word length. The game ended 62 to 61 for me, beating Aganju…


  • pienza at 2013-06-16

    This topic should deserve more attention. So, Bump!

  • pienza at 2015-07-29

    Bump again
