I gave up right before the correct word! I did really good with 15 trys then just got stuck. So close and yet SO far! Thanks for posting this game/riddle or whatever it’s officially called, i’m just bummed that I have to wait until tomorrow to try again! Of course i’m going back to try my skills on the harder word! Thanks again for the cool new thingy!
BTW; I’m not even a gamer kind of girl! …jus sayen.
It took me more guesses (18) than everyone here who got it it, but substantially less than the average time (39 s)
I don’t think that was a conscious decision on my part (trying to optimize speed versus minimize guesses), but I did get start to get antsy if it took me more than a second or two to type the next word.
@DennisG2014 There’s a bit of vocabulary skill involved, especially in the hard category, as only valid words are allowed for guesses and when you get past the first four letters it gets tricky to keep coming up with real words. A little bit.
Yes. I think once you understand the process, your time will improve to a certain extent until you reach a limit based on typing time vs blunt luck in word choices. Sudoko or solving a Rubik’s cube is sort of like that. If you understand the mechanics, it makes it easier.
(wish I knew the overall parameters for the word though… 3 letters, 4, 5? That could be a big difference in my word choice/guess)
@tinamarie1974 likewise. All the ones I posted above are my legit attempts. I only found out you could “cheat” accidentally when I was doing some other stuff at the same time and had to shut down my browser at work.
@mike808@stolicat normal, but I keep meaning to hit up a real paper dictionary at the house to see what the median word actually is. (as well as the intermediate ones from there) Just because a letter is in the ‘middle’ of the alphabet doesn’t necessarily mean there are an equal amount of words before or after that letter.
