Once again, I was foiled by Hard Mode. Maybe I should go back to regular mode?

Jude, (obviously) the purpose of 'Hard Mode' is well, to make it harder, more 'challenging'. The premise is to make one work harder on strategy. The problem, in my very own humble opinion, is that one would often have to rely more on luck than strategy when you have clues that fit a common pattern. Say one has _AKER, it could be BAKER, FAKER, TAKER, LAKER, MAKER, SAKER, WAKER, or _OIST could be JOIST, HOIST, MOIST, FOIST. There is no opportunity to use strategy in such cases and it becomes a game of Whack-a-mole. That would suck all of the fun out of the game for me. Obviously your mileage may vary. :D

I was just a little off on two words and it made for a tough game. But we made it and that's all that matters!

My Hurdle win percentage has been hovering around the two-thirds mark for a while, but today took me to 67% and I'm gonna savor it since with my luck I'll probably lose tomorrow. :P
