Half. Was very surprised by the stats of Enigma; I doubted it would be 100%

Gilet?

Sorry - I try hard to avoid this situation, but sometimes something slips through the cracks. The source I use for these quizzes compiles words that are valid across all Scrabble dictionaries. Gilet is valid in some but not others, just as ribbit was in Saturday Stumper #1. Fortunately in this case it's not far to go from g to f :)

If 'filet' is allowed (US spelling) then so should 'gilet'. Given that both are pronounced the French way, there's also a case for allowing neither.

I updated the caveats to include a note about words being valid across all Scrabble dictionaries. For some reason 'gilet' (nor 'polony', as someone else pointed out) isn't.

Also, Polony as the act of hiding behind a curtain and getting stabbed...

Gridlock totally has 7 letters. It at least gridlocked my mind.

Man that was hard! My brain just got stuck at some point. Tried so many longer ones for 'lence' too, like prevalence and malevolence.

Just wanted to point out that I did my part in reducing the % of 7 of these....all of which seemed so obvious after the fact.
