    Today's has been the only word I've seen so far that could cause problems depending on your initial guess. If you arrive at getting the last four letters correct, you've then potentially got a further 7 possible words that could be correct.

  12. #212
    Yep

    I had the last four on one three yet didn't get the word

    I got the last 4 letters correct on the second guess, but took 6 guesses before I got the answer - thought I was going to blow it after a good start.

    Well my first failure happened. Only one letter right in first two guesses while also not narrowing things down at all. Then it's down to probability and trial and error. And I failed....

    Got it in 4 today - was luck that I guessed the first letter correctly in the first attempt after getting the last four letters correct in the 3rd row.

    5 today. Same issue as a few above, started to guess the first letter rather than eliminate combinations of letters.

    First four today. Really need to get that average down to four and away from five.

    Could easily have been a 4, I nearly chose differently for that third guess which would have left me without the first letter.

    There are some right pigs in the archive. If I hadn't really narrowed down the possibilities I might not have got this one with three letters the same:




    And this was a close call despite the strong start:




    P.S. I don't always go with the unique letters technique but it does pretty much guarantee success with the more obscure words.

    ^ Vozhd and Waqfs - I had to double-check, but they are accepted, impressive. Handy for the less well-used letters.

    The Times spent an undisclosed figure on the game, but described it in the “low-seven figures.”

    So the first digit is possibly a one then...

    Just heard on the news, it's free for now, but will have to be paid for after it's been bought by a company. 😐

    I needed all six again, 50/50 guess on the last letter and went for the wrong one and scored six instead of five.

    There's plenty of similar alternative APPs out there.

    It won't be a paid game, but I suppose it will be behind their subscriber paywall.

    Pity if it goes behind a paywall or has a load of ads.

    I'm 100% up to now, I try to use as many vowels as possible in the first word and never do a word that I know it can't be just to use letters. 5 is my most common result then 4 so I'm not a lucky guesser.

    Edit did today's in 2 which is a first

    They have a free daily Sudoku (possibly others too) so could be the same.

    I hope that it does remain free, as it's a fun little game but it would certainly not be a great loss should it disappear behind a firewall.

    (o: Probably correct - otherwise they would have used the TZUK approach of "... not starting with a 1".
