A vocabulary game worth the candle. I can't seem to break 50.

Labels: ,



Comments:
Wait - 50 grains of rice or vocabulary level? Also, this game is quite addicting...
 
Vocabulary level. Also, as I click the final scene from the "Kung Fu" pilot plays in my head.

"To sell yourself--for a handful of rice?"

"You are much more than a handful of rice."
 
Eh! That makes more sense! I am happy to say I have donated many grains of rice - however I can't seem to break 43:(
 
Level 50 is the top, I think, unless there is some secret level above that!

Any walking dictionaries out there?
 
I posted that, then spent a good hour between 44-48. My time with falconers is proving well-spent (not that I needed confirmation of that), but I could wish for more than a semester of Latin! My atrophied Standardized Test skills are getting a workout, too.
