My App of the Month? It's another NYT game.
If you remember, Spelling Bee was one of these a while back.
The Times has a number of games. At least three crossword puzzles, the Bee (which I still play daily), Tiles, something else - which I'm not allowed to play because I have to leave it for 710. That's fair.
But I just found Letter Boxed. 710 swears it has always been there, but I have never seen it in the hundreds of times I've been to the NYT site.
I will say, it took me about 2-3 times to figure out the game. .....and NO, I did not read the instructions...because I am a dude !!!
The idea is to use all the letters at least once to 'win' the game. But wait - there is more! You can start on any letter, but the last letter of your word becomes the first letter of your next word.
But wait - there's more! The idea is to use all the letters in the least amount of moves / words. The goal, from the makers, is five words or less.
My goal is four. Actually it is three. Often I can do it in four.
I didn't make it with this game, as the K really fucked me up being on the same row as C. And the fact there weren't a lot of letters you could spell.
It will take five minutes of your day - and tease your brain a little.
