I bombed, too! I think you had to get purple to have a chance - I had the other 3 categories, just couldn't weed out those purple tricksters.
Reviewing what others did, apparently you didn't HAVE to get the purple to get the others. Nice job those who didn't bomb
And I picked green thinking they were things that hold things up. And I don't get SEA CHANGE or SEA CUCUMBER...
And I took all day, got the 1st two and kept looking for something to get that cucumber mostly, lol.
