If you get every single possibility, Queen Bee is the highest! I've gotten there in a team effort only, though.

I hadn't heard of this game, but I tried it this week and it's really fun. Thanks for posting about it!

Thank you! I tried the site a few times this week when I wanted to keep playing!

I tried this site today, but only played once (so far!). Thanks for mentioning it!

If I'm really stuck, sometimes I make a word and include a letter that is grayed out. It helps to eliminate some of the other letters.

I missed the word PERRY, which is a type of British pear cider (I had to Google it).

Did anyone get today’s word on Wordle? Today was the first time I didn’t get it. I had 3 letters, but was stuck. It was not a common word.

Does anyone do the NY Times crossword puzzle? I can do the ones early in the week, but the ones later in the week are so hard!

nora, I never got Queen Bee on the NYT spelling bee. If I get Genius, I stop and look at the answers at nytbee.com. I am always upset when I see the words I missed!

I got it!

I did BANDS, NEVER, CHUNK, and then got today's word K**** (starred in case someone else hasn't done it yet). I don't think I've ever used it in conversation. I've missed the word a few times. A couple of times they were British words, but I have an "ugh, duh!" moment when the word is more obvious.

I did get today's word, but it was a head scratcher and took 5 tries!

I have really been enjoying this game ever since you posted!! I do the multi game ones...not just the daily. Another alternative to my usual Bitmango Word Cookies game! Thanks so much for sharing!

Just wanted to say thanks for introducing me to this! I'm really enjoying it and it made me get my Sudoku out again too. Love it!

Me, me! I do it every day (not always successfully). I also have a FB account only for playing scrabble with a couple of friends. I've never once actually posted anything there.

yup. nerd.

AnMrsDe and Vantreesta: You're very welcome! It really is a fun way to start the day making faces at the computer screen! I do enjoy the mental gymnastics involved.

I have found the archives and have set a limit to how many I am allowed each day. I don't always stay within the limit, but I'm glad to say that I haven't found myself hours later, glassy-eyed and in a foul mood after an overdose of wordle

I have discovered that it's available in other languages, which is really a challenge but incredibly gratifying when you solve it!

This is the first day I have allowed myself to do more than one. I got the first one quickly and now am stumped on the second! I don't know if the site I'm using allows you to set a daily limit or not.

ETA: Doesn't look like you can set a daily limit but you CAN choose how many letters the word has, from 4 to 11. Yikes!
