That is, by far, the stupidest game I have ever seen.

Pretty fun game. Some are easy (beer, fries), some are not (noise, others I couldn't get )

250 was my top score out of two tries.

269 on my first try. If I could learn to spell I would have done better. I am convinced speed is the same thing as spped.

jezus h christ. Mine were hard. I got a whopping 36 points. Only becasue the one I got was "speed" and one of the images was a shot of the movie poster.

Alright, tried it again, 198. That is a little better.

Another game where if you play it enough, you can increase your score based on the fact that it apparently only has a limited number of words in the game. Once you know what a group of pictures is, you're in there.

Trouble is, the game keeps freezing up on me, taking away from my score.

I got 340.

MAN, is that addictive! I got every word right, no freezing this time, and typed as fast as I could, and STILL only got 373.

Well, you know how it is...there's some of us out there who, if we can't catch on to it right away, dismiss it as being stupid, even though we jump right back in and don't stop until we've conquered it.

I guess I got lucky. I tried "quidditch" and it took it.

You can vastly improve your score by playing a lot. I just got a 348, and "quidditch" was one of the answers.

I just got 377, and I'm starting to get pissed at seeing all these high scores of 395 and higher. It's starting to become obvious that this game boils down to typing skills.

EDIT: Now I'm really pissed. I just got 384, 10 words in 16 seconds, all guessed correctly the first time. I couldn't have possibly typed any faster. 395 or higher now seems an impossiblity.
