Don't have the mental energy to do all my normal puzzles after a full day at the con (got through security and into my first panel room before 9:00 a.m., and just got back to my room for the night a bit before 1:00 a.m. :spin:), but I had to at least do Waffle so that Rose's streak doesn't get too far ahead of mine. :D

No worries Eldy, I'm not competitive, I just like puzzles, especially word puzzles. I made several careless mistakes (so far) today.

Wow. One of the worst Wordles I've had in a long time.

THats like my usual performance in wordle nowadays, Rose. I feel like I have cotton wool in my brain.

Nah, I didn't think you were competitive, but I admire how good you are (off days notwithstanding!), and it's fun figuring out Waffle strategy concurrently since we started playing on the same day. :)

Not gonna mess around with Hurdle on my phone (where I don't have AdBlock), but I took a swing at today's Wordle during a lull in Line Con. Playing when I'm this behind on sleep is ... let's say, a "fun" challenge. :P
