A couple more Jotto puzzles
So I made my program that finds these. I did a run of 100 games, and it came up with these 2. I'm in the middle of doing a run of 1000 games, so we'll see how many that turns up.

Oh, these are not in the order that they were guessed. I forgot that the way I was doing it wouldn't order the guesses, and when I realized it, I figured it was a nice side puzzle, figuring out a valid order if you're playing by the Evil Jotto rules (each guess has to possibly be able to be the word based on the information from the previous guesses). Note that you don't have to fiugre out the word to be able to order the guesses.

Puzzle 1:
agood - 0
pupil - 2
greit - 1
picks - 1
rapid - 2

Puzzle 2:
sinus - 1
diner - 2
weigh - 2
glued - 2
laari - 1
pique - 2
motty - 0

okee, i got #1 easy, now my question about #2 is do i need the information contained in the last clue? ie, should i be able to come up with 5 letters w/o needing to care about motty or any letter not previously used?

Wihtout considering motty, there are two words that it could possibly be. There is, however, a high probability that neither word is in your vocabulary.

For all of these puzzles, if it's a legal word and it fits all of the guesses, then it is going to be the correct word.

so, continuing on, assuming that i need to get as far as motty to find a word, i'm getting a headache. are my root letters of rue correct?
