Wow, It’s like Wordle - green means right letter, right place; yellow means right letter, wrong place. Letters may or may not be repeated.

You may not be given all the letters - you will only be given letters if they appear in the solutions to the crossword part.

To be fair, I don’t think it was very well explained in their instructions.

Today had no idea what 1, 7 A, & 3 D was...   Yesterday couldn't get the PW.

13 minutes today. I thought I typed in the right answer after about 4 minutes, but must have misplaced some letters.

Exactly 1.00 for me. That’s satisfying.
