    HQ Words is a fun little game. Frustrating, still, but fun.

    I've been Beta playing it as well. I'm too dumb/slow to get past the 4th or 5th one! :)

    Yeah - they get to the 6th or 7th and you really have to get it immediately.

    And (not so much verbally) has a nice little hot librarian vibe.

    I’ve won once — thanks to an extra life — and gotten to 9/10 a couple other times. But I feel better about it than the original game and its silly trivia that too often is really just a guessing game in the later rounds.

    I want to know what chad1m does to finish top 3 nearly every day in Words. Gotta be some using some tech aids.

    The key, I think, is to quickly run through the vowels when you don’t have a beat guess on first reveal ... eaoi ... then assess quickly before going to TNSHRL, etc.

    Got my first two HQ wins this week. Wednesday on Sports for a share of points toward this season... basically worthless i the long run.
    Then tonight during halftime, one of about 8,400 winners of a regular game.

    Just saw a Facebook ad today for Scott Rogowsky appearing at some college. I thought, is HQ still around?

    HQ's CEO is named Rus Yusupov, which sounds like a character from an SNL skit about Kremlin election interference.

    Damn. Still played pretty often but the writing was on the wall. I should have cashed out my $10 and change.

    Will miss HQ After Dark late nights on weekends...swear, Matt and Anna were hosting it high AF.

    I was stuck at $9.69 for ages. Finally won $0.32 on sports a few weeks ago. Cashed out and stopped playing. Whew!
