Carrying on the tree as opening word theme, we are up to the letter Y

28 Comments

  1. Adieu is my starting word every day (takes care of 4 vowels)I play against my guy & stepson lol

  2. Mark’s opening word streak currently:

    ALDER BIRCH CEDAR EBONY FICUS GUAVA HAZEL IROKO JAMBU KAURI LARCH MAPLE NGAIO OLIVE PEACH QUINA ROWAN SUMAC THUJA USNEA VITEX WILGA XYLEM YUCCA

    Theme: 5-letter trees, alphabetically (except for usnea, a moss that grows on trees, and xylem, a type of plant tissue)

    Z is very tough. I found ZAMIA, but I think that’s a shrub and not really a tree

  3. After my joker fiasco, metro in 3 was certainly welcome

  4. Not the most straightforward word but pretty easy with so many common letters.
    DAUNT – THIEF – WROTE – METRO

  5. l stsrted with TRAIN, so while it's a totally different word spelling-wise l was kinda amused with what it ended up being

  6. Struggling to understand why you find metro so strange and tricky.

  7. Mark, I will always admire your ability to immediately make deductions regarding the possible letter placements. Metro was, in fact, the only word left after the second guess, so the quick "well O can't come first, and it can hardly come third" were of course accurate. That example actually seems rather straightforward, but I'd say many times you make these deductions which are less obvious.

  8. There must be a five-letter tree beginning with Z. I’m looking forward to finding out what it is! Thanks, Mark.

  9. "Metro" makes me think of the grocery chain in Quebec, so it didn't come to me as a valid possibility right away. Even though there's a metro system right in Montreal. Oh well 🙂

    EARNT/TREED/RETRO/METRO

  10. My first solve in two: XYLEM – METRO. I definitely did not expect that to happen. Think I got lucky 😅

  11. Music, Maker, Merry, METRO (has a nice alliteration to it🙂).

  12. After the debacle of my lost streak with yesterday's word, I got this one done in 2. ratio –> metro.

  13. CHORD -> OVERT -> METRO

    I thought it would be silly to try a V so early, but the other letters made it worth doing.

  14. Got this is three and very quickly, which was a nice welcome after the joker fiasco. Siren – tread – metro

  15. Watching you beautiful lads here on cracking the cryptic has certainly helped keep my mind sharp! I aspire all the time to reach a fraction of the cleverness you all seem to have so naturally. Always such a lovely experience as well, calming and charming. Much love from Chicago!

  16. Mark, obviously not a fan of 80s pop music. (Think Berlin's "The Metro")
    Got it done anyway, with a starting word that was no help. 👏👏👏
    I got it in a lucky 2 guesses, and still have the song in my head. 😛
    See you tomorrow!!

  17. Mark: "Can't make any -erto words…"

    Also Mark: immediately types MERTO

  18. So I got metro, but it took me sooooo long to think of it

  19. Ironic I had just played mini-metro daily challenge beford I did this.
