Ok, I failed at 47 level...with a bloody "cringle", but edit 48!!
Anyway...easier with the Encarta opened... :-// :-// ...In about a year maybe I´ll be able to do it without dictionary
But easier too cause they use many words in latin, wich is quite similar to spanish word.
Anyway, addictive!!!
(and I´ve given 420 grms. of rice...cool!!!)

To motivate you - there are only 50 levels. So the game is not impossible to beat!

Someone beat me to it. I was going to spread the word about this site!

I'm floating around in the 36 region; Americanisms 'put a spanner in the works.'


shiitake means:

* mushroom
* lively dance
* colleague
* imperfection

Lmao, won't ever forget the answer to this one!

Dammit, I was feeling smug about hitting level 42 out of 50 before I came across this thread...

Having said that, I shouldn't be surprised that fellow Fryphiles are more literate than I am.

More literate, or, more prone to hyperbole

Well I got to level 55 and managed to donate 1,000 grains of rice. I don't think I missed a word... never knew how much useless information I knew lol. The only one that almost stumped me was attermine which I had to sit back and think about for a few minutes.

I played it for a few minutes, long enough to get to level 38, but it's kind of a nice feeling when you get the right meaning for a word you've never seen before. Almost as nice as seeing that number of rice grains go up. Woo! I think I'll play it later today when I get more time. Nice find, AxmxZ!
