I have fixed the type-ins now so that exact answers are required. (Although because there's so many options, you may get an answer accepted before you expected to)

Great quiz! The first one was slow and thought "no way I'll finish this in 3 min", but my brain must have flipped a switch as it seemed easier after that. :-)

Yeah, I figured slightly less time on this than usual because there's so many options early on :)

Is "stimming" not in the scrabble dictionary?
+2
Level 68
Mar 1, 2022
Nope, I suspect it's too new. Merriam-Webster says it was 1983 when it was first mentioned, being a contraction of "self-stimulating".

I thought that it was stimming too

Stewart, I think you could change the last green clue to read "which ends in "-a" to make it a little more challenging. Reading down, people already know the two vowels are the same, and it makes it somewhat harder to start from the bottom and go up. Fun quiz though!

Needs to start with S due to clue #2!

slamming is most definitely a leisure activity. Slamming can be injecting drugs into your system or two people banging loud enough for neighbors to hear...lol

For the green category, once the second clue came up ("...which contains exactly two vowels"), I tried "any" because I saw it in the clue above, and it's a valid word. However, the quiz didn't acknowledge it as a valid answer, supposedly because it didn't accept the "Y" as a vowel. I tested "icy" afterwards to see if that worked, and I got the same problem. I strongly encourage adding words that use "Y" as a vowel for that particular clue, since they do still follow the rules.

It's not about that, obviously, but the fact that it's debatable wether it's an actual word.

Gosh, sometimes the snarkiness of people so full of themselves on this website gets tiring.
