Default Satisfying

There are still a few unretired 5x5 boards where a cheater holds the record. Most of them are unapproachable, but I just put another one out of its misery

Ha! That's the most badass framing possible. Now I'll be thinking that every time.

Of course, there's that nagging worry. I try to remember a time before I played boggle, and none of those memories seem quite right ...

I'm glad you liked it. it was the first thing that came to mind. I just hope you don't come across the Roy Batty character. He'll get you to question your whole existence

Roy Batty's soliloquy at the end of Blade Runner is probably the second best soliloquy of all time. I'd put Horatio's "Now cracks a noble heart. Goodnight sweet prince . . ." first, but that is just my opinion.

No argument here. "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe..."

Just half-retired another replicant board. It's funny the way a throttled computer algorithm doesn't find anything like the same word list as a human, giving results like this:

Total points: 655 New record
Total words: 144 (83 common,21 wide,7 rare,33 ultra rare)
Best word: SMALTS (10 pts.)
Longest word: MISLAYS (7 letters)

PUZZLE STATS:
High Score: 596 points by [...]
Most Words: 170 words by [...]
Best Word: HYPERCALCEMIAS (26 pts) by [...]
Longest Word: HYPERCALCEMIAS (14 letters) by [...]
