    Round 8

    word:
    snidittle

    meanings:
    1. A holder for a handleless coffee cup.
    2. A snide remark.
    3. A Welsh derogatory term describing a midget or dwarf.
    4. An adhesive remover.
    5. British slang for an argument over something trivial.
    6. In Sweden, the term for a bratty child.
    7. South African name for a tart strawberry based jam.
    8. The early name for the "Sneetches" in the classic Dr. Seuss story.
    9. The name for a honey jar shaped like a bear.
    10. The smallest piglet in a litter.

    Those ineligible to guess:
    21st (no definition).

    This guessing round closes, at the latest, in just over one days time at approximately 12 a.m. boardtime. Which gives approximately 31 hours from this post. If all - and only if all - guesses are received before that time, the round will end and we will get on with it.

    Remember to please post both the number and meaning when you post your guess.

    Talk and discussion about the definitions is by all means welcome. Your guess will only be counted once you have clearly posted a number
    and the meaning.

    And I'm hoping some of you guys on seven switch your answer, or else somebody's gonna run away with a lot of points this round.

    Sorry again, hectic days. So you know, I'm actually flying up to Brisbane later tonight and will be there for two days (48 hours). So I'll only post the new word after this weekend.

    :)

    11. REAL: Very coarse grass. - (JediNemesis) - (MarasFire)

    Those who didn't guess:
    21st (no definition ... actually removed from the game, but I haven't got around to that yet)

    Congrats Nem and Mara! You decided not to vote for Bob's and that's served you well! Speaking of Bob, congrats on picking up four points.

    Speaking of points, there were a few high scorers in this particular round! They're also three of the top four people according to the rankings. Very, very close. At the other end of the scale ... I, uh, if I come last ... do I ban myself?



    Eighth round scores:

    1. JediNemesis - 15
    2. MarasFire - 13
    3. The_Loyal_Imperial - 11
    3. SWBob - 11
    5. KrystalBlaze - 8
    6. NYCitygurl - 6
    7. _princess_leia_ - 5
    7. Imrahil - 5
    7. s65horsey - 5
    10. Hammurabi - 3
    <strike>11. 21st - 0</strike>
    12. Tyi - 0

    The next word will be posted in just over two days time at approximately 12 a.m. boardtime. Which gives approximately 48-72 hours break from this post. As it goes, each round will last for 4 days. The break-up of the timing is affected by how quickly players contribute, but there is always a benchmark or cutoff to work from./>/>

    Tyi, I think that if you finish last you should ban your main SN and spend a week posting as Tyi-What_Ever :p
