    I tried it one time and started with the word "ratio." Won in 3 tries. Mic drop. Not getting roped into one more game; I do three already and don't want to spend any more time on my phone than I already do.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    OK, I just tried it. I've been avoiding it since it came out but I had to see what all the fuss is about. Since there's only one puzzle a day and I blew today's big time, I'm a little discouraged. Plus this is essentially an anagram puzzle and anagrams is my worst category in Jeopardy. But I'll see how I like it tomorrow.

    OK, I purposely searched for the unlimited version yesterday just to try it out. I'm now 34 games in with 28 games won, 5 after three guesses, 10 after four guesses, 9 after five guesses and 4 after six guesses.

    Part of me wishes I'd never seen this thread and another part can't wait to play just a few more games again. This game is quickly and thoroughly addictive!

    Sometimes I surprise myself with it--like the time I had the last four letters of a word with three tries left, and lost. Or the time I had one letter on the board with four tries left: and won on the next try. I also like AARP's Wordspell, which is basically Scrabble solitaire.

    I am continuing to pointedly ignore new time suck addiction.

    I tried again today, and I got it in 3. Maybe Kay and I had beginner's luck?

    I was just going to say that.

    I like that it has elements of skill, luck, and deductive reasoning--the latter of which requires me to gather my usually scattered "little gray cells," as Hercule Poirot would say.
