Players who find a long word together may split the prize. Many thanks to Yuki Loritz for her contributions to both pots during last month’s games. You can do it!
BAMBOOZLEMENT=13 letters. Start somewhere at the middle. Here are some words to build on: BAM, BOO, AMBO, BAMBOO, BAMBOOZLE. The plural form of BAMBOOZLEMENTS contains 14 letters. The word will qualify for both categories: the 12- to 13-letter word, and the 14- to 15-letter-word or more. Adding the S at the end is better because the award is higher. BAMBOOZLEMENT is a noun meaning to deceive or get the better of someone by means of trickery or flattery (Internet Dictionary).
