Nature tends to be an early word for me, but got the science angle so early, I didn’t think to go that way

I had to cheat at the end. I knew what the article was describing, but had to pull up a map to get the actual name. Literally never would have gotten it, my obscure Canadian geography knowledge is lacking.

Cheated. I knew it was a an island in or around Canada, and I’m pretty much dead in the water on naming those.

I solved today’s Redactle (#227) in 27 guesses with an accuracy of 51.85%.

Used google maps, and a list of seas to find beaufort sea then the island.

I got that it was an island in Canada’s NWT. I pushed on longer than I should have just to make sure it wasn’t something I might reasonably know, but it’s not.

1, 100%. I saw ‘over-and-under’ and ‘side-by-side,’ and shotgun was my first thought. Plus some things that appeared to be measurements. If you’re not familiar with shotguns, I could see this one taking a bit.

Massive assist from my gf. I knew it was gun related. But I was in a hotel room on my phone. It’s very hard on the phone because the keyboard and everything take up most of the screen. It’s very hard when you can only see a couple of lines at a time

Yeah, I gave over-under and side-by-side a minute’s thought right at the start and, while it rang a bell, I just couldn’t place it. I’m not a gun person, but I still might have gotten that eventually. After some common words, I started plugging in a bunch of single-digit numbers, hoping to get an idea of size or weight or quantity or whatever, but I never really looked carefully to see what turned up, as there were quite a few hits. I’m not even sure why, but my first real guess after that (at 25) was ammunition. Maybe it was “what’s something that could have a lot of numbers?” idk

I play about half the time on my phone and I agree, it dials up the difficulty quite a bit. I’m on an iPhone, and forever toggling the keyboard on and off so I can see more of the text. Playing on my 24" monitor is really helpful.

I could see it was international but I was thinking maybe a business, or a business group. Also considered manufacturing maybe. Banking is close enough that I got hits. The big help was when I got ‘states’ and then figured out it wasn’t the United States, that got me to ‘EU Member States,’ and then bank. I had European and bank by 50, took me 17 guesses to get ‘investment.’

Oops, they must post it at 8am PT now, I guess because of DST? Oh well.
