    And yet it takes "shat".

    At least we know Microsoft's penchant for scat...

    Oh, and a word of warning to everyone. Never play with Gl3n. He's bloody autistic when it comes to getting those anagrams!

    That reminds me.

    Apparently FECHTING is Scottish word for Fighting.

    You really do learn something every day. Rex, the AI Bastard, knows loads of Scottish words.

    DRAP

    Just so he could get the D and the R and the P, the ass!

    I've seen some right weird anagrams so far.

    And many times I've spotted the anagram 0.2 seconds after confirming a shorter word... :(

    I had THANKYOU as an anagram earlier. That's not right is it??

    Apparently:



    What kind of words can I submit?
    You might be surprised by what is a word Lets start with words that are NOT valid in Quarrel:
    words that need an apostrophe (Im)
    words that need a hyphen (X-ray)
    initials (TV)
    words that only start with capital letters (Gary)

    Plurals are okay even if they are made by simply adding an s to the end of a word (a very good way to win quarrels, by the way). Quarrel also accepts a smattering of slang terms as well as archaic, regional or dialect words. KY, Scottish word for cow, is one of our favourites.

    I'm tempted to buy this... I guess I'll be on in a bit if people are playing.

    Hah! This is great. Tried some cpu games to get the hang of it first.

    Americanisms and odd spellings are fucking me up. Took rex out, and had helena on the ropes until *one* stupid mistake on the anagram due to spack-handedly pressing d instead of s and hitting y before realising i was a letter short essentially lost me the game.

    Ring and Start are also not useable online !!
    According to twitter MS can change and add words that are banned on a daily basis.

    Seems a bit pointless trying to second guess MS whilst playing a game online.

    Its a bit annoying that certain benign words are banned online but at least all players are in the same boat

    tried my first online game last night, and as usual, the other players both dropped out as soon as I started to dominate. They were then swapped out for Dwayne / Malik, so not the end of the world.

    I've also managed the 200 point achievement. I did it by using the challenge where you have to complete 3 x 8 letter anagrams, and fortunately, none of them were too tricky.

    I've managed to play some online ranked games. Was 6-0 and in the top 10 last time I looked.

    Screw being good at COD online, its all about Quarrel. Look out for my youtube channel ;)

    This game has *so* got it's hooks in me. Last night I dreamt about solving anagrams.

    /o\

    Thanks for the invite Lexx, but I was trying to get to grips with it against AI last night. I think you have to take it quite slowly by the looks of it, so you have enough back up to defend should you mess up and lose a large group of letter-holder-uppers.

    The AI knows some really annoyingly highly scoring low letter-count words in my opinion.

    I also got hammered by the AI going for 'Xeroxed' which I should probably have got, but never even thought of it at the time. There'll be a learning curve on short high-score letters for us all I'm sure!

    Edit: also really nice to see so many from my FL playing this too.

    Sorry I didn't manage to answer your game request last night, Rob. I was actually on the phone when it came in and by the time I'd fobbed US support off with some bullshit excuse you were already in-game. :)

    Looking at the leaderboards I'm surprised how few people there are in the 'ranked' online ones. I was 19th in the world last night, which sounds amazing until you realise there were only 193 people on the entire board. Is everyone playing unranked matches?

    I'm not sure it's a game I'd really want to play with randoms.

    And yeah, as much as I am enjoying playing it with friends, a game like this being released with such a severe crashing bug is not cool!

    Practically every game I'm in has someone crash out. Last night it happened to two people in one game :/

    The game is much more fun with friends. The shrieking makes it.
