Looks like there are a lot more meta-heads around now than a year and a half ago.
That was followed by
Puzzle People as you mentioned
Mismatch in August 2017 at 33% (337 out of 1022)
Toybox in December 2017 at 33% (98 out of 296)
What Not to Do in March 2020 at 36% (571 out of 1587) lots of hail Mary's there
Go Down For the Count in March 2017 at 37% (334 out of 907)
Marking Time in July 2018 at 37% (130 out of 352)
This week as you mentioned
Sound Investment in February 2017 at 38% (212 out of 558)
And there were 11 more below 50%
That is 21 out of 211 where we scored below 50%. So it is not uncommon for Matt/Mike/Marie to throw a toughie at us about every 10 weeks. They would have to indicate whether it is planned or not.
And yes, there are a lot more of us crazies around. The number of submissions has increased from 700 per week four years ago to 1500 per week now. However the percentage correct has stayed around 75% (long term average) pretty consistently.
