In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Four - hit 3 greens (2 previous yellows) and added a yellow in line 3.  Took a few moments for the light bulb to go on.

I wish I could figure out how to post the results... tried a bunch of different things but the forum will not allow...

5 for me too... made a stupid mistake that cost me one try... I should probably have two cups of coffee first instead of one...  :D

I also got it in 5.

It seems a lot of it depends on how good your first guess is.

Absolutely.  I got it in 2 today.  My previous attempts resulted in a 6 (to be fair it was my first time playing and I didn't really get how it worked) and two 5s.

Query was a ball buster.
