Does anyone else play it?


JoyLouise Report 14 Jan 2022 12:15

I had to google it, Maggie, as I had never heard of it.

It could be fun but it could be addictive.

The glory is, you can only play it once every 12 hours :-D

had to google.
It looks to be on similar lines to the games with coloured pegs - Mastermind? That was a while ago!

Got it in four words :-D Now I have to wait until :-\
That's a bit rubbish!

Ah ... another thing to get hooked on.

It's like Lingo, which I found on TV one afternoon.

Makes a change from online jigsaws, for which I set myself target times for completion.

Good thing is you don't have to pay for it and they're not harvesting your details!! Bad thing is American spelling :-)

Only occasional American spelling!

I've done it in 4 twice in a row, more luck than anything else probably. Have been doing number games on a free site recently so this made a change!

I hadn't heard of this game until Maggie put up this thread. Tried it last night and didn't get it but just tried this morning and got it in 4. Glad you can play this game online because I don't have a smart phone so can't use apps.
