Changed the time to 9 minutes. I don't want it to have too much time as I don't want it to be too easy to guess, but I agree 6 was probably too short

Excellent. I think the timing is about right - I missed three or four at the end which I would probably have got if I hadn't been panicking about the reducing time. All part of the fun!

Perhaps you want to do a super-hard one starting at King Egbert.....??
