Fortunately the Field Workplace Recreation, a brand new browser-based Wordle-like, permits you to commerce factors for additional clues: the primary billed actor, the director, the tagline, and so forth.

In doing so, it turns into a extra broadly accessible film guessing recreation than Framed, and I am having fun with it so much.
