I solved Semantle #99 in 31 guesses. My first guess had a similarity of 1.10. My first word in the top 1000 was at guess #21. My penultimate guess had a similarity of 37.54 (962/1000). https://semantle.com/

Got my mojo back after two days of hints and abandonments. First green was pretty, after trying a few around appearance thought of The Sex Pistols and got it in three steps.

I solved Semantle #99 in 40 guesses. My first guess had a similarity of 0.31. My first word in the top 1000 was at guess #22. My penultimate guess had a similarity of 12.77. https://semantle.com/

weird. managed to get 791/1000 with business at guess 31, and lucked into the answer on 40 -- even though my guess at 39 should have turned me in the opposite direction? i wrote occupation and it was cold??? but sometimes i just think of 3 words at once and just type em all regardless of hits, so im glad that worked out for me...

a very straightforward path from monument>history>epoch>millennium etc, last two have been a piece of piss, but worth remembering on saturday I was on 180+ guesses and was too lethargic to finish it.

Another good result, sure it won’t last.

Dan Worsley, Monday, 9 May 2022 06:47 (two years ago) link

I think I got lucky with my first green, most of the answers in top 100 would have taken down a totally different rabbit hole.

Dan Worsley, Monday, 9 May 2022 06:51 (two years ago) link

terrible day, 160 guesses, it took me a while to sidestep from nation, colonial, history rather than trying to get more specific.

papal hotwife (milo z), Monday, 9 May 2022 07:20 (two years ago) link

45 yesterday, 96 today, yeah i had nation, world, continent was going nowhere till i remembered i hadn't tried my usual time.

Indeed!

I solved Semantle #100 in 2 guesses. My first guess had a similarity of 32.55 (947/1000). My penultimate guess had a similarity of 32.55 (947/1000).

Had a hunch, went with it and it paid off.

joni mitchell jarre (anagram), Monday, 9 May 2022 08:26 (two years ago) link

Whoa, nice!

Meanwhile, I struggled today - finally got it in 209. Same as others, I was stuck on history, empire, nation, etc and "times" was very low-scoring so it took me a while to try a different variation ("era").

Got #101 in 102 guesses, but only by getting a couple of hints, which I regard as cheating. After the easy run yesterday, back to the nightmare, basically.

“exercise” was a high cold but tried “rights” after “workout” and “gym” came back lower, and that set me on the correct path

Couldn't get this one, think I've lost my mojo.

buffalo tomozzarella (ledge), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 13:11 (two years ago) link

Got #102 in 32 guesses, best effort in a while. Got in the high greens early with 'politics' and riffed from there.

papal hotwife (milo z), Wednesday, 11 May 2022 01:10 (two years ago) link

Got #102 in 25! Basically was very lucky to randomly guess imbroglio at #11 and from there it was just working my way up the green ladder.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 11 May 2022 01:28 (two years ago) link

14. :) ”politics” was my fourth guess.

politics was my seventh guess but I didn't think to try the target word for another sixty-odd guesses after that.

Embarrassing. Had vote, candidate, election and everything else political, then got sidetracked into every synonym for conflict, war, disagreement, etc. etc..

#102 in 102, was worried I wasn't going to get it over the line again.

buffalo tomozzarella (ledge), Wednesday, 11 May 2022 14:32 (two years ago) link

papal hotwife (milo z), Thursday, 12 May 2022 00:04 (two years ago) link

Got it in 22. 'Space' was a high cold, hit green with 'rocket', then airplane - flight - FOUND!

Zelda Zonk, Thursday, 12 May 2022 00:11 (two years ago) link

I got #103 in 81 guesses (hey that is good for me ok) ... was lucky because i start with random words that pop into my head from recent conversations and emails and my coworker was telling me about a friend of his that was going on a solo sailing trip

sarahell, Thursday, 12 May 2022 01:18 (two years ago) link

197. Took way too long to get past flight, pretty much guessed every other aviation-related word

Hit a middling green with air early on which took me to aircraft and flight in short order.

joni mitchell jarre (anagram), Thursday, 12 May 2022 07:42 (two years ago) link

51. Much the same trajectory as ZZ except I tried a few more plane and flight related words, then thought of the answer, then thought 'nah it can't be that'. luckily i tried it anyway.

my 1st green was 'crew', followed by 'cabin' so it was a question of whether I focus on boats or planes. Went the right way.

Didn't get past move for the longest time.

we only steal from the greatest books (PBKR), Thursday, 12 May 2022 12:06 (two years ago) link

53 today. Went into the top words because I wanted to see if there were any related to the meaning of the word indicating the corridor bit at the top of stairs. There were not, as far as I could see, which led me to question if that's even a thing in American English? Do you guys call it something else? I mean, obviously it could just be that it is a much 'lesser' meaning, but I am curious now.

emil.y, Thursday, 12 May 2022 12:48 (two years ago) link

yeah i was curious too, stairs is fairly high but not green.

yes, that's what we call it in American English ... at least in my line of work, which deals with such things regularly
