What puzzles do you guys do? I got into a routine during the Covid lockdown, which was when I had rotator cuff surgery since we were in a lockdown anyway. Sort of a double whammy.

Any time after 9pm, the next day's NYT mini crossword is available, so it is typically the last puzzle of the day for me. (Or the first puzzle of the day, depending on how you look at it.) https://www.nytimes.com/crosswords/game/mini

Then any time after midnight, Wordle, Nerdle, and Connections are available, which are the "big 3" that several of us share here on CPS.

Typically with my first cup of morning coffee I do the Jumble Daily. https://fun.chicagotribune.com/game/tca-jumble-daily

And then the Tea Time Crossword. https://fun.chicagotribune.com/game/tea ... ernal=true

Lately my favorite is Connections, whenever it's more challenging. It's one that I take my time on. The others, I do as quickly as possible. Except for maybe Tea Time Crossword. I seem to learn a new word or two every time I do that one.

I try crosswords and jumbles when I have time and I’m pretty consistent with the CPS thread puzzles. I try Octordle almost daily, but I’ve never gotten more than four of the words so I don’t post the results.

I’m pretty consistent with the CPS thread puzzles as well. 😂
