Feature Request - For those of us with dyslexia
 
Can we have an option to exclude puzzles with numbers? If there's a clue that says "Elton scored 112 points" and another clue that says "John scored 121 points" there are those of us that can't tell who scored what number of points. It makes it really frustrating when you're sure you've got the right answer but don't, and can't see why or find where you went wrong. It's even worse when you get to a puzzle with multiple categories that are all number-based clues, like "Julie has a 4.2 megapixel camera and finished the race in 1992 in 3.5 hours." My brain goes :confused: and I just usually don't even try, I just ask for a new puzzle, and sometimes have to do that ten or more times.

I agree too Kate. When I get a puzzle with lots of numbers too I do the same. It's so easy to missread.

I admit there is a case for dates. or numbers as long as there are not more than 2 categories. That I find is manageable.

ah, those are the most fun because they require such a careful eye! mostly when there are times and you have both 11am and 11pm! yikes! or names that very similar! so much for blasting through and trying to set time records with those!

i'm waiting for one of the ones with departure and arrival cities to have the same list of cities, meaning you've really gotta be carefully as you read the clues! :-)
