Daily One Inch Button - Crossword Games

You're sitting at a table with three of your closest friends. You have this square board in between you and each of you systematically places these curious wooden tiles down on the board, forming and adding to words. What is going on? Are you performing some sort of ancient ritual to summon a spirit?

No, you're playing one of the best games ever. You know the one to which I refer. It contains exactly one hundred tiles but the possibilities for words just go on and on and on - well, so long as the words you create have seven or so letters, not counting words which are created by adding to already existing words. What's the world record for longest word created in this awesome game? The uncontested word is apparently Sesquioxidizing. Nice word.
