UVSC Session Report Monday, June 3, 2019 (Session #230) (authored by BJ) This week saw another first for our club: two 9-letter bingos in one session, MENTIONER by David and UNSHELVED by Marilyn. But there's caveat: only one of them is valid! Can you guess which? I would have thought both of them to be valid, myself. I had the high non-bingo for the week with PHONS (a PHON is a unit of loudness) for 82, but it was more circumstance than skill. Earlier in the game I had bingoed with PLEADING ending one space shy of the TWS, because I couldn't find any other place to bingo. A few turns went by and finally I got an S, making PHONS + PLEADINGS for the big score before either player had sufficiently clogged up the area. Our bingos for the week included SATIRIST, NEARLIER (an unusual inflection of the adverb NEARLY), EMOTIVE, WARISON (wealth), DETERGED (to DETERGE is to cleanse), ENTASIAS (ENTASIA is a spasmodic contraction of a muscle), AILERONS, DIORITE (an igneous rock), SAUTOIRE (a heraldic design), DECRIER, NARGILE (a water pipe), SYBARITE (a person devoted to pleasure and luxury), SCORNER, and BILKERS. The answer to which 9-letter bingo was valid appears in the (CSW) board photo below.
