I solved Semantle #104 in 45 guesses. And it could have been much quicker, except I fannied around after #17

My first guess had a similarity of 3.41. My first word in the top 1000 was at guess #17. My penultimate guess had a similarity of 19.67

and am still pretty unclear. But yeah the issue with what is generally a fun and challenging game is that Wiki can't half spout a load of bollocks occasionally. Should really be someone checking through each day's article and ensuring that there's a "standard" version that gets loaded up.

Otherwise you might accidentally one day get the article about Sepp Blatter where it says his middle-name is Bellend, and imagine the tangent you'd go off on then...

I got Redactle #37 in 198 which - although still naff - is a bit of an improvement for me, especially given it's another area I'm not familiar with. Glad I stuck with it now as I'm learning about stuff I'd never think too look up, so thanks for the encouragement.

I solved Semantle #105 in 105 guesses. A lot of potshots until a weird #60 threw me off - by #90 I was back to guessing but finally got lucky.

Must stop guessing plurals, different tenses etc. when I'm really close, they never seem to work.

My first guess had a similarity of 6.66. My first word in the top 1000 was at guess #60. My penultimate guess had a similarity of 28.23

Do people use the same starting word every time or one of a few good ones? Seems like a game that'd get boring quickly as presumably you'd do it in 3 or 4 most times? Where's the interest - getting it in 2?

I do it on hard mode where you have to use previous successful letters guessed, in subsequent guesses. Makes it a lil more difficult to cheese.
