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.

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

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

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.

I solved Semantle #103 in 33 guesses. My first guess had a similarity of 30.46 (826/1000). My penultimate guess had a similarity of 59.36 (997/1000).

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

joni mitchell jarre (anagram), Friday, 13 May 2022 10:35 (two years ago) link

35, despite getting #998 on guess 2.

been too busy to do this for a few days, that felt like an *easy* one.

calzino, Friday, 13 May 2022 20:46 (two years ago) link

Got #105 in 133 guesses. No hints, but did resort to a thesaurus, and probably wouldn't have got it otherwise. Eventually narrowed it down to something you wear on your head/face, was stuck on 995/1000 (sunglasses) for an age.

Had windshield/windscreenat 80 and 81, so should have gotten it sooner.

161. First green at #86 was jacket, then tried every clothing word I could think of before getting in the 990s with helmet and then goggles.

Enjoyed that one. 1st green was 'glass'

Grandpont Genie, Saturday, 14 May 2022 14:25 (two years ago) link

179 guesses -- no hints, no thesaurus -- i figured it was some sort of protective garment or term related to such things about 90 guesses in after getting in the green for "knee," "ankle" "wrist" and "shoulder" earlier on

sarahell, Saturday, 14 May 2022 19:08 (two years ago) link

238 guesses, up to 100 my only greens were carve and chisel, another 80 to luck into stab.

papal hotwife (milo z), Sunday, 15 May 2022 00:47 (two years ago) link

Weird one - solved in 81 guesses with no greens, think that’s the first time that’s happened. my highest guess was “stitch” at 30.39

162. I got that it was some kind of small and cute gesture quite quickly, but it took me ages to get to the actual one.

I kind of got this one out of the blue. First one in a while feels like.

Got #107 in 70 guesses. Fairly straightforward run there: into the greens with space, then scope, then free - which eventually led to unrestricted - restricted - FOUND!

Zelda Zonk, Monday, 16 May 2022 01:38 (two years ago) link

114, 'huge' and all related words, then 'infinite', 'finite', bingo.
