I returned to my standard three-starting-words strategy today after five days of trying with two, and immediately felt far more at home. Sure, it still took me eight guesses to solve them all – which is about what I've been getting with two – but it required a lot less brain power and I never felt like I was in danger of losing my streak.

Not that today's words are too difficult anyway. There are no repeated letters, no really uncommon (or uncommonly spelled) words, and no Q, Z, X or J to worry about. No complications of any kind really, beyond the fact that I needed to play BEFOG as a narrowing-down word to help me choose between GRAIN and BRAIN.
