Brain Sprint frustration


 Posted 7 days ago More by David L.

Playing Brain Sprint I was getting very frustrated because I knew the answer and when I typed it in I was told it was the wrong answer. I looked at a few more clues and my answer had to be the correct one. But once again I was outfoxed. Finally I decided to look up the word and found indeed my answer was correct each time. The problem wasn't the word but my spelling of it. Well, I guess that this is a good way for all of us to improve our spelling. I have also noticed that sometimes we don't pronounce our words correctly so we spell them about the way we pronounce them, thereby messing up both. Funny thing is that I was so sure my spelling was correct that when I put it in the second time I didn't change a letter. Of course if a word is deemed wrong, it's wrong. By trying to spell it the same way changes nothing. I didn't feel to intelligent after that. Lol.

I have also found this David.....firstly there are a few spelling errors but importantly there is a difference in spelling between America and Australia. Perhaps the powers that be could make several correct answers dependent on different country spellings. A ticket would need to be put in for this.

Yes your situation would be annoying and you made me feel a little better as I have had the same thing happen to me several times. I was really getting discussed with the game. Thanks for your input now I just have to get smarter.

Hi David ! You meant the Hidden, not Brain Sprint, didn't you? Speaking about Hidden, the main point is to guess the correct word , with all characters - letters in correct order. And, you're right - it may help us to improve our English so I really do like the Game ! Best regards !

Hello, You are correct in the way you feel it But I am frustrated for different reason. When I see one letter given to fill for 14 letter word then I should be correct if I can give word which is meaningful having the letter in the same position. I should be correct . Am I thinking some thing wrong ?? Muhammad Luqman
