Perfect!

It took a bit of head scratching to suss the greens* and I admit I didn't spot the connection on the purples* before I hit submit, but then I didn't need to.


*is this game colour-blind friendly?

I'm 7 for 7 on this one. I wouldn't have got the purples if they hadn't been all that was left, IYSWIM.

I worked out the connection but one of them I’m not familiar with in that sense. Dictionary says it’s an American usage. Fair enough.

What is the significance of the different colours?

Ah ... yellow is supposed to be "easy". That's why I couldn't do it until it was all that was left.

That was very tricky. Took ages today, and bit of luck methinks.
