Tonight was the most brutal word puzzle I have yet to encounter...or maybe I just got all of the nasty one. My brain is in pain. Mas cerveza, por favor.

I agree with Tuzilla.

I knew I had no hope, so I kept entering letters. Three of the 5 segments were so foreign to me that I entered all the letters before typing the solution.

Somewhat incredulously, my time was much better than usual so I got abot 660 points for time - I think an all time high.

I think the distribution of time points and solution points on WordPuzzles are out of whack.

Indeed, as I've said before, I'd like to see time only be a factor when several are tied for the same number of guesses.

WordPuzzles are the last respite for those of us stuck with dial-up. I'd like it to be the one oasis where time is mostly not a factor.

I totally agree with you!! That was really hard. My brain hurts after that one as well. I think I will go back to doing the word rounds now....

I gave it another go today (Monday).
Exited after eventually getting the first.
A herb specific to N. America, I've never heard of in UK, and so rare that the specific answer wasn't even in my Webster's!!

I thought it was as easy as a "Bag of Cheeseburgers!"

The first puzzle was VERY hard---I used 14 moves on that one alone! The others weren't so bad.

What? You guys are complaining about a tough quiz? But, hey, don't blame it on us Yanks. I didn't recognize them either.

Not complaining...just amazed at the difficulty against some of the others.

Surrey, what herb did you get specific to the U.S.??? 3 of my were from different planets.

What kind of cheese is on those cheeseburgers, Felix?

I had never heard of any of those herbs but that doesn't mean they don't exist. I think a lot of us had trouble with that one. My head still hurts.

Ohhh I dont want to stand out in the crowd here, but I found the 'herb and spice' wordpuzzle to be my best yet, and yes I had heard of them all, never used them mind you )
