A fun puzzle and very clever -- but I quit counting the number of pink screens I got

Very clever but one of them ate a BUNCH of letters but then I made up for it somewhat with getting 2 of them without using any letters. Lots of fun.

Ouch. Had the first four with no letters in less than 200 seconds. Then I hit the 5th one. Pink screen, two wrong letters, and a good portion of the alphabet later, I finally crash landed. I guess it made sense after I finished, but it sure wasn't obvious.

Enjoyable, but one of them had me with a pink screen and then going through a good bit of alphabet before getting it. Great puzzle!

This puzzle had the greatest disparity of clues I've ever seen.

Of course we all love puzzles we can do easily and no doubt that was why I found a couple of clues unfair ...still at least one of the ones I wasted letters on was perfectly fine and just my stupidity. Having said that:
I really hated one of my clues and found the choice of words gratuitously inappropriate. Having found the city I then had to work my way through the alphabet to fill in what was in my opinion almost a non-word, badly clued, with maybe 10 sounder alternative words/clues available.

Oh well; probably no more than sour grapes! It cant be easy to turn out so many WP and even get close to keeping the WP solvers happy.

One confusing clue cost me two red screens and a wasted letter or I coulda been a contendah. But if I'd guessed the right rhyme first, I would have thought the clue quite clever.

Other than that, I loved it.

No beef here. When was the last time I did a WP in 10 minutes?

One pink screen because I was not imaginative enough (and never write poems).

I don't like short ones.

Obviously a luck-of-the-draw WP. My five were very straightforward, with appropriate clues. My sympathy for the ones who got the toughies. I've been there!

We had 4 gimmies and one serious ouch. Didn't like the clue or the answer on the one. Pink screens plus multiple letters. Otherwise a goody.

Short puzzles are the most stressful for sure. You can really swim - or sink!
Came in the top ten so no complaints. However the only one that kept me from a fiver was "El Greco's home"
"Go Toledo" came to mind [ Toledo was a gimme]- but it was a different rhyme scheme from the other four .
Used a safety letter O to be safe.
Top Tens are cool so I'm pleased.

The word that got me was 'cam'.
Maybe its a language thing but even after getting Amsterdam and seeing the clue I could not find a three letter word ending in 'AM'!
Worked my way through the alphabet a few times, and none made any sense.

I had that one and, admittedly, held my breath while submitting "cam." But I was 85 percent sure it was correct. Didn't the clue indicate something about "seeing"?

Had I gotten that clue, I'd have been worried about which Dutch terdam was being discussed. As is, my final undoing was translating happy news in Australia as Perth mirth ...

Perth was my nemesis, also. I tried mirth and worth before hitting it, and that's about how far out of the top ten I finished. How about "Down under spare tire." Perth girth.
