Wordy Wednesday #49 and #50 update

WORDY WEDNESDAY #49
WORDS WITHOUT FRIENDS (answer)
It's been two weeks, so time to unveil the answer to the hidden puzzle. If you still wish to solve it yourself, please go here. Here are the grids I received for the Words Without Friends game. Their scores are as follows:
James McGowan 521
Christian H.P. 504 *
Mark Tilford 437 *
Jack Lance 408
Adam Weaver 375 *
Giovanni Pagano [no score] *
Ivan Koswara [no score]
John Bulten [no score] **
Note: Ivan Koswara solved half of the hidden puzzle, but didn't find the instructions on how to extract the final answer. I'm giving him credit for 0-star completion.
Since I got so few solutions, I've decided to forego the random drawing: ALL solvers of the hidden puzzle (Adam Weaver, Christian H.P., Giovanni Pagano, John Bulten, and Mark Tilford) receive a signed copy of the last issue of Will Shortz's Wordplay, and ALL scores of over 350 (James McGowan, Christian H.P., Mark Tilford, Jack Lance, and Adam Weaver) get booby prizes!

WORDY WEDNESDAY #50
PENT WORDS 10 (hint)
10 people have solved last week's puzzle. Haven't solved it yet? Here's an easier version. Send your solutions to glmathgrant[at]gmail[dot]com within the next week to appear on the solvers list and be recognized for your puzzle prowess. Good luck, solvers!

Wordy Wednesday 51 will be posted soon, but at the present moment, I'm setting up. . . something. Expect an official announcement next week! (Those of you who follow me on social media may already know what it is. . . .)

I know it's a little late, but I just wanna say, DRAT. I had a feeling there might be an actual puzzle in WW49, but I couldn't be bothered to look at it closely. And I really would've liked that prize.
