I knew some of them were Olympic sports, but I couldn't seem to get the right combo. As for the purple category, I know technically you can "set" a mood it seems like kind of a weak construction, and I've never heard of setting a volleyball.

It occurred to me as I was playing today that if you don't feel you can trust the puzzle writers to play fair with terms most people have heard of, it takes some of the fun out. The great thing about Wordle is that aside from SPELT the words are taken from everyday language.

So I knew the word was unlikely to be DECAP or DECAM.

Yes, I agree. But I try to be charitable towards those game developers because, having run into some problems developing my own game, I've learned it's trickier and more difficult than one might think.

This follows my pattern lately of getting the green and yellow, but not the blue and purple. But I saw that some of you also didn't get the blue and purple, which is a bit comforting.

But what the hell kind of sports are skeleton and breaking??!!???
