boo! 3 down is a spanish word, not an english word.

but also if i'd re-checked my assumptions each guess i made at the end, i would've caught the mistake and gotten 7. too hasty

I had a brilliant scheme to get it in 6 guesses but was wrong about one letter. Thanks to my scheme, 7 was possible.

Most time-consuming part of this was, after solving the puzzle on paper, figuring out 4 valid words to enter that would cover the missing letters in all 5 words.

very disappointed in myself! had i been paying more attention while entering what i believed to be the solution, i would have noticed my one-letter mistake in time to fix.

can't feel too bad tho... just had a streak of 15 games <=7.

But a great score today at least.

This was so hard. I was stuck, stuck, stuck. And then I literally flipped a coin to decide between two guesses for the top word, which I had no confidence in... and it was right, and then I got it! There's always one word you're not thinking of that's the key to the whole puzzle.

think i'm gonna take a break, not enjoying this game that much anymore. it feels like an obligation to check off instead of fun. i got 8 instead of 7 only because i made a rash guess not wanting to think about it.

hmph. i worked *very* hard to rearrange letters to get it in 6, only to find "intel" wasn't accepted. but "kepis" was.

squareword 

@scott The odd thing about that filter is that for some reason, it isn't applied to notifications. I don't know if that's a deliberate design choice or merely an oversight. (And yes, I confess I have followed so many people that I had enable notifications on some of them, lest they get lost in the deluge.)

mastodon meta 

@EverydayMoggie hmm, sounds like a bug to me. if it's consistent and really bothering you, you could report the bug to the Mastodon project. mstdn.social/@feditips/1085844

mastodon meta 

@scott It's certainly consistent, but not a huge bother. But since there is a checkbox to apply filters to notifications, and that's checked, it probably is a bug that should get reported.

Want to see something really frustrating? (Note: Spoiler for today's puzzle)

squareword 

@ladymondegreen so close! You'll get that 6 soon, I can feel it.

squareword 

@scott Nice! I'm still doing 9, but no more 10, 11, or 12s.

squareword 

@scott I'm still having trouble solving under 9. I am trying to presolve on paper first!

@vincent that's what i do! after the first 2 guesses.
