Thanks for the parody Ken. Quite excellent.
Richard, how about a partial for Josephine 1023868544?
Not sure it's even winnable yet Ken. Those spades are nasty
Yep! Couldn't get a 6S out to save my life.
I've tried every trick in the book Ken. It's just not winnable. I had fun trying it though.
It's always nice to know that I didn't miss anything. THANKS!
Only thing you missed was the solution.😁. Hint: Get 3H at Waste 18 into column 2.
Well done Larry. An inspired solution.
Ken, #2 is also winnable.
Both saved if required.
Thanks, Larry & Richard. Richard, I'm playing random games of Josephine to help quiet my mind so that I can sleep. Of course, when I get aggravating games like the one above, it has the opposite effect!😡
Richard, I'm definitely going to need a partial. Even with Larry's clue, my best score is 57/21
Ken, Josephine's worrying back was the origin of the saying Not tonight (again) Josephine !? Napoleon had a very short temper you know ..... 5'2" 😁
Famous last words perhaps Ken. The un-won deals are the bones of what we have previously practically picked clean in Forty Thieves. At least you have about 50 known winners.
Hey, it was Larry's idea! LOL! Btw, do B & H have a higher point value than F? Asking for a friend...
B 40,H 52 and and F 29. I'd used the B in line one. The minute I got the OUND the first word I thought of was FOUND. The crossword solver showed 8 possibilities commencing with BOUND, FOUND and HOUND, then some I'd never even thought of. What swung it for me was that 19 Wordle solutions had started with F and only 8 for H. So tell your friend I just went for my gut.
