Here's what works for me :

JOURNALISTS works once every three levels (108 pts)
UNDERSTANDING works once every five levels (143 pts)
PROGRESSION works once every five levels (approx 108 pts)

If you get stuck, try JOURNEYS - UNDERSTOOD - UNDERNEATH - PROTECTION - PROSTESTING

Others that work well are QUICKLY - and words that begin with SLOW

Start of with typing THUNDER if you can get THUNDERSTRUCK (165) THUNDERSTORMS (154) THUNDERBOLT/S (130). Worse case scenario THUNDERING, THUNDEROUS, THUNDERED.

Cool new personal best

Funny... lot of new people signing up just to get their word mole score posted. Been lurking for a while getting good advice on my storm...

score 21,972, words found 578, level 49

Each time I lose now, it is because some noise (wife or dog) decides to distract me, and I lose focus.

I usually play the first 10,000 points now when I am not paying attention, then lock the storm, and come back to play at 10k + when I can focus.

My tips...
You must use the vegetables. Use questioningly (159 points) or quartering.

If not, have some backups to clear Q's when there are no u's (like iraqis or qa)

clear z's with buzz, buzzes, buzzers or zip, zippers, zipped, zoo, zoos

clear v's with vet, or vix

Be ready to use consonant intense words on the ice-levels.... words like told, cold, burn, turn, etc...

Keep making words. If stuck, just keep firing 2 and 3 letter words until some better letters arrive or some veggies pop out.

Default Currently at 31,619

Not sure what the all time high score is, but the highest I have heard of is 39,000 but no screen capture. I have a screen capture at 28,000 and I will post one once I am defeated of my top score. 40 veggies and 930 for a season ender is my current high.

Anyone have a full list of names/scores? Crapberry doesn't upload from the Storm very well.

31,619....and counting.

-Jv.

ps-I know I'm a nerd for all of this.

SHOULDERING shows up 2 of 3 levels, and it's good for 103. What's frustrating is the number of really good, valid words that aren't in the dictionary...

Another tip is to try to get multiple vegetables in one shot - at three, the bonus increases to 20 each. At four, it's 30 each.

My own high is 15830. I have been wondering if the official high score of 99,999 L99 is attainable, or if someone figured out how to submit fake data...

I think this score would not be attainable. assuming L99 is as high as you can achieve you would have to score at least 1000 pts per level on average. This isnt feasible given the scoring mechaincs.

My favorite word so far. misunderstanding (231 pts)

Before I had to swap my Storm for a new one, I had about 30,000, as I recall. I'm currently back up to 19,321.

Those who are having trouble getting past 10,000, the tips here are good ones. I have a few of my own.

1. When you get up to the higher levels, it's more difficult, but not as hard as you might think. If you try to consistently use words of at least 6 characters or better (press the "Statistics" button at the end of each season to see your average length), the water can will fill very often and you'll get more vegetable bonus letters.

2. When you see the vegetable bonus letters, use them. If you can, use as many as possible, but don't wait. It's actually better to do 3 and 4-letter words with these rather than lose them.

3. Watch also for the water bonus letters - once again, use these right away, even if you have to do a 3 or 4-letter word.

4. Also watch for other bonuses -- the time and point bonus letters. If you're running behind on a level, the time bonuses can make a huge difference, adding up to an extra minute. Once again, even a short word is better than letting these go away.

5. As others have suggested here, use the practice level to see what is and isn't in the dictionary. (Yes, it's weird -- it doesn't know what a "pontiff" is, but it's heard of a "****!") <<-- and adding to the hilarity is that the forum's software deleted that word!!!

Create short words that can be expanded; that way, you can always fall back to the shorter word, rather than lose an important bonus letter or waste too much time.

6. Remember that each additional letter makes a big difference in the score. For example,

DELI - 8 points.
DELIGHT and DELIVER - 37 points (just by adding 3 more letters!)
DELIGHTFUL - 88 points
DELICIOUSLY - 108 points

... and so on. INTER can become INTERPLAY, INTERACTION, INTERNATIONALLY (which is worth a LOT of points!).

I do have a suggestion for Blackberry: there have been news reports about people having to swap their Storms because of a worn keyboard. It might help if you'd modify Word Mole for another type of play -- instead of being time-limited (which causes the player to whack the keys frantically, trying to beat the clock), have a game mode where the goal is to find the single largest word on a given screen. Or, to play a single screen until no further words can be found, at which the game is over. Remove the element of time and you'll swap a lot fewer Storms under Warranty .. .. .

Default 26136

New high score for me of 26136.

Again, only interrupted by my wife asking me a question. Result in a score of like 538 out of 540 needed to advance a level.

I'm convinced if I was put in isolation I could reach 99,999.

Default No interruption

No one failed me but my own brain this time...

35363 points, 879 words found on Level 65.

Got 40 vegetables worth ~750 points for new veggie record.

Had total brain freeze and only got 520 of the 690 points I needed to move past this level.

I may now be retired from wordmole until the server goes active. Games now take well over an hour to complete
