I had to come back to this 3 times... "Genius" was at 225 today; my last word was 10 letters.

At a certain point it tells you you've reached genius level (I'm not sure what percentage of words).  You can "share" it or continue from there.

Every single game has its own share function and none of them make any sense. I guess Wordle does.

I did okay yesterday, never got to the panagram: 


You found 39 words with a
total of 146 points.

I got today's panagram, but not a lot else, I'm at 16 words and 54 points. I'll leave it for a bit and come back.

This is another one I don't feel like I'm wired for. No panagram, I'm still looking for at least two 4 letter D words. I'm at 36/133 and I'm gassed.

I eventually sort of figured out connections, but it's still tough for me (and I often miss the purples). This one kills me.

I circled around the last word (to make genius) for a long long time. I would never spell it without a couple of hyphens
NYT spelling bee social media achievement


Yeah, I tried one compound word that I would probably hyphenate if I were writing it...just because...  seemed more of a UK usage than US anyhow. Probably a few medical terms in there that I didn't feel inspired to toy with.

yep, i somehow made it to 43...by making up (so i thought) one or two words i didn't know were words, as usual. i wish there was a feature to see the answers on the same day instead of having to wait a day.

Perhaps, apparently a mid-15c word.  Still seems like a made-up word to me.
