Woe was me today. I had all but the first letter in green on line 2. I reckoned that I had just four possible starting letters, so I started guessing.

You know what I'm going to say:

Did it in six. Grr.

I do it every day. I've a precise record of all my shots (how anal is that...). I've now done it 380 times, scores as follows:

In one: 1 (the word was "adopt")
In two: 16
In three: 103
In four: 141
In five: 91
In six: 21
Failed: 7

I seem to do a lot better when I get stuck than when I've got too many choices like today.
