This is my first event, be gentle with me.

I found 14, eight letter words using only the top row of the keyboard. The first person who e-mails me a list of all 14, or whoever finds the most gets 30 turns. If the winner doesn't find all 14, I'll give 2 turns for each word found.

Sound good? My e-mail is javos@evernight.net

12:00 midnight EST Saturday, August 3rd is the deadline.

I forgot to mention the words I found don't have hyphens, spaces, or special symbols.

Using each letter once or multiple times?

You can use the letter more than once, sorry.

would that also mean you could use the same letter multiple times in a word, just had to clear that up.

Definately. Some of the words use 'r' three times.

Only two entries so far, the leader has found ten words on my list, second place has found six so far.

There's still plenty of time to enter your word list. And for the two who have entered already, I'll accept updates to your lists until the deadline.

ok, wasn't sure if our list had to be 14 words as well. I sure hope not. I sent in a list of like 25-30 words.

I feel stupid. . . I can't find a single 8 letter word using the top row, all I have are F's with numbers after them. On a serious note I really can't find any 8 letter words using the qwerty line of my keyboard.

If you think that's hard, try finding a word witht the zxc row of letters.

You had me worried there, Sartek...

As is, even with finding around 20 words, I've still not got that many matches with Javos.

Can I add 'oooowwww' for what this is doing to my brain?

If it makes your brain feel any better, I used a program to find the words. :)

Aye...saw some examples of that myself.

Sadly they didn't seem much good at detecting 8 letter words.

Curses...

Just a couple of hours to go until the deadline. I'm still taking re-submissions from those five people who have sent in their list of words. No one is making use of words that start with the letter 'w'.

So far the leading entry is still 10 words.

Well, found another random source and sent my last gasp in.

Hopefully it'll bring the ones I need...

Well, my first event has come to a close. I had a whopping five entries and I thank each one of you for playing. I'm not going to stick with two turns per word.

C.J. XXXX got ten words on my list, which means you win. I'm awarding you the full 30 turns because of the low turnout.

Matrim, you found nine words on my list. You win 20 turns.

nk1415, for seven words you get 15 turns.

Tal Beren gets ten turns for finding three words.

Here are the twelve words on my list:

tripwire
roquette
reporter
property
puppetry
putterer
priority
prettier
preterit
potterer
pipewort
torturer

well, well, after staring at my list of words for a week I just realized two of them can't be used. No one submitted these two words anyways.

Thanks to everyone who participated.
