I've never been good at word games.
So I was surprised when I got any of the words, much less some of them on the third try.
Even more surprised that I liked playing.

From the link
It's a shared experience (those are more meaningful.)

The insightful A-HA moment when you get the answer.

I like playing it, I don't think I would say I was addicted to it. It is fun, challenging, and not difficult to play. Also for me as a Sudoku guy, it is a nice change of pace. But if it disappeared tomorrow, I would only be minorly disappointed.

Wordle? Never met her. It looks like you guys are posting colored squares, and I refuse to jump on this bandwagon.

Got wince on the 3rd try.
Sharing failed.
Still like Bookworm more.
Glad people like it though.

That's just one of the things that makes it unique and enjoyable. Only one puzzle released at midnight, everyday.
The one puzzle a day thing is both a bummer and the most important thing about it.

Sharing fails for me too if I use the DuckDuckGo browser on my phone.
But if I use Google Chrome on Android, the browser that tracks and shares everything about you for fun and profit, the share button works fine.

You guys were playing, people at work are playing, some family members texted me about it, etc.

I felt compelled to check it out, now I am part of the problem!
