I'll be glad when this format gets retired though.

Liked this puzzle - just hard enough to be challenging but easy enough i could understand it! Great job Bbear

Excellent. I have really enjoyed this entire "color" series and just about all puzzles that use this "style." Lots of fun.

I left out a word and got a phone call in the middle of it. I hate it when that happens. Other than that, I knew most of mine so that helped a lot.

Speaking of an interruption, this morning I had an electrician show up 45 minutes before the time he told us. So, how do you tell an electrician to please wait outside while you finish your Sploofus Word Puzzle??? I couldn't quite do that, so I quickly as possible showed him what work was needed, explained that I was "in the middle of something right now," and scurried back to my computer. Yes, he thought I was weird. And, yes, I am weird. But, at least I got a good score and still finished the dang thing in less than an hour!

Beth, pay no attention to Lodi.

I never want this series to end!

Not sure how to type a raspberry, Andy, so you'll just have to close your eyes and imagine it.

I'm just saying it will be nice to not have the same format of puzzles over and over, kinda like when we got inundated with the "10 things about" puzzles.

There's a lot of brilliant people here. Surely we can find a way to mix it up and not get stuck in a rut.

(P.S. In keeping with the popular theme, I have left out all the F words in my post.)

But, Lodi dear, I do very well on these (cf. leaderboard) and they're my absolute favorites.

BTW I authored a devilish one of this type you may see before I leave for the USA on July 8.

Moreover, I'm not asking other authors to skip rock and roll phrases and puzzles at which I am at a great disadvantage but you're not.

At least not yet.

Outstanding as usual - I'm a fan of this series too

Lest I forget . . .

Another superlative puzzle, Beth! Just loved it.

Keep it up, but no more than once, say, every two days for Lodi's sake.

Bbear, you write the best puzzles of this type, IMO. Don't stop!

Great puzzle Beth. I love these color puzzles because they tend to cover a variety of topics. I always learn something.

Glad you all liked it.

Jim and I sorta started this genre of "no name" OR "something missing" puzzles and feel we kinda own them.

But...we are about out of colors.

Lodi - write something and start and new trend?

Actually, I think the editors have been doing a few of those for quite a while, just not so many of them. I remember having a couple in the past before players were allowed to write WP's.

I haven't written a WP in a long time. I'll think about it, thanks.

Rather than the "missing word" approach puzzles, weren't a lot of previous puzzles ones where a common word was repeated in each puzzle?. For example, a puzzle might have been about "cats" and each puzzle had an answer, like "Black cats are considered back luck." I remembered a whole bunch like that before Beth began the "missing word" idea.

How are these missing word puzzles any different than those (other than you have to remember not to type in the "magic word")? Lodi, would you have said something if Beth's puzzle had been exactly the same, but you had to type in "gray" or "grey" each time?

I think what Lodi might be trying to say is that perhaps the missing word puzzles are just too much of a good thing. It's like if you were forced to eat nothing but chocolate for a week. You might LOVE chocolate, but it would probably be overkill at some point.

And...although Bbear had started a great series, others have also jumped in on the trend and there seems to be an abundance of the missing word theme.

Anyway....Great puzzles all around....All you writers are so creative.....but....some might feel a theme overload while others haven't yet had their fill....Although I have my personal preferences... if y'all keep writing 'em... I'll keep solvin' 'em (or lamely attempting too, at least)!

Thanks. That's what I was trying to say. Just mix it up a bit. Or don't.

And yes, we've had missing word WP's before, back when only editors could write WP's. I don't remember the year. My original membership started in 05 so there's been a lot of changes, a lot of themes, and a lot of changes in players since then.

I do enjoy the missing word themes & Beth colour series has been especially good, as was this one

I also sympathize with Lodi, while Beth's series has been running we've had quite a few on this theme including one from me in the contest (sorry, had my original WP refused & had to write another quick like. I'd been saving my Dogs Out puzzle until Beth was finished). The 10 Things puzzles were great too, but I was hankering for some variety by the end. I like puzzles on any subject (OK, math not my favourite) so everyone keep 'em coming. Much appreciated
