It only took me 140 guesses and a month and a half.

But I must concede it was a very different kind of puzzle.
Overall I'd give it +2 (both thumbs).

I found #pedantle #80 in 140 guesses!

Today's - #109 - in just eight guesses. I suppose one improves
with practice.

Practice only helps so much - I had never heard of the previous
one.

But #110 - 5 guesses.

Oh! No pressure, then.

BRB... You might want to start a drumroll about... now.

<...some time later...>

Never mind; as you were. 37 guesses (sigh).
