Successes are so rare for me, even successes in 6.

:swear: Within 100 miles on guess 5. Even started typing the correct answer in for #6, then switched. Close, but ended up just under 200 miles away.

Success! First post since game 291 8 days ago. Played each intervening day. Sometimes close, but never getting the country. If they gave credit for getting the right continent in 6 guesses, I would have been right on all of them.

:swear: Should have gotten today’s.

I think the puzzle creator’s fault, not mine. I concluded after guess 2 that the country was near the bottom of Africa, but unfortunately there are tons of countries in Africa and I have no idea were in Africa most of them are. I knew it must be South Africa or a neighbor. But one thing I was positive of: Lesotho is an enclave in South Africa, and this map shows no enclave. So I guessed only countries without enclaves (eliminating maybe only South Africa in Africa). Then South Africa was right.

A rare victory in 3, and only 2 days after my last win.

And a victory in 2! After only 1 day of failing.

Got a 1 shot today, which makes that my modal result once again

:green_square::green_square::green_square::green_square::green_square::tada:

Also got all the neighbors without a miss

I was curious about the capital question this time so I tried it

Spoiler

Bolivia has 2 capitals. I wondered if it would accept both as valid. It did not…

I reinforced our modal combined guesses at 7 today, without getting it right. I did get a neighboring country on guess 6.

Only 6 days since my last victory. OK, not very impressive. This sounds better: β€œonly 6 days since my last victory in 2”.

Sure, but you miss most of the educational value of the game if you don’t use the distance and direction clues.

Rare success in 1. But with that shape, should be 1 for many

I don’t usually do the neighbors, but I did today and it was hard.
