Question retry

Has anyony else had problems with the letters not filling in when you retry a cryptogram? Every time I've had to go back and retry one I have had to fill in all of the letters one at a time, as opposed to the regular cryptograms that automatically fill in the letters once you put one in. Of course this adds to the solving time, which is already long in the first place...since it was that hard to solve the first time around. Is it just me? Very frustrating.

Default Same thing...

I've had the same problem.... also I've had a new game pop up... giving me two to solve.... the other day, my cat walked across the keyboard... and suddenly I had 9 unsolved games.... that was a real time killer!

Default Retry

I knew there was a good reason to keep the cat off of the keyboard! I've been having better luck with the "go-back" arrow on the browser than the "try again" in the game.

Smile retry

Well, I can't say I've had either of my cats step on the keyboard yet...but they sure do try and play along with me somtimes.(especially the one in my avatar photo. He is very brilliant for a kitty) So the back arrow is the better way to retry? I'll give that a shot next time. My solving percentage isn't that great this month so far, so I have to watch it. I'm short on patience with the really tough ones. Thanks for the hint!

Default How....

How do you keep a cat off the keyboard? I am a dog person, and I inherited this cat from my 87 year old uncle who died last summer. The cat seems to be drawn to my keboard like a magnet. I tell him no, and put my hands over the keyboard. Then when I am not watching, he walks on it. He also stands right in front of the screen when I am trying to solve a puzzle. I guess he wants attention, or wants to participate. Unfortunately, he has shown no ability to solve cryptos.

I never said it was easy to keep a cat off of the keyboard. Try toys, feeding, handing it off to someone else, or encouraging it to sit in your lap instead of on the keyboard.
