    Wordle

    Anyone else doing the daily wordle challenge? I am addicted and look forward to my daily challenge.

    The whole family is doing it and it had introduced a good bit of competition between us.

    I got todays wordle in 4, which is about my average. Beaten by my son today who got it in 3.

    Jup doing it for the past 10 days or so! Good fun and 100% success so far - had a few at the 6th attempt, gets a bit nervy then! I am trying to keep it entertaining by going with a new random 5 worder to kick things off each day as I'm pretty sure strategically a few key words help massively to get it in 4. But this way is more fun!

    Another Wordler here, been doing it for the last 11 days.
    Managed them all with between 3 and 6 guesses. Today was a 3...


    Cheers,

    Adam.

    Yes I'm a fan. I struggled initially as I'm colourblind and the gold looked like green until I actually got a green to compare it to. Now discovered colourblind mode which helps enormously.
    Ironically the day I discovered colourblind mode is also the only day I failed to get the word so maybe I wasn't struggling so much after all.
    Personally I always start with the word "AIRED." I like to get 3 vowels out the way. I'm sure there are alternatives that work better but that's my tactic and I'm sticking with it.

    AUDIO is a good starter word as it has 4 vowels. Its worth trying S as the first letter too.

    Thanks for starting this thread, not seen it before and had a go a few minutes back; could see it becoming a daily event. It reminds me of the old Parker Mastermind game of the late 70's.

    that was a real pain, could have easily been a decent result.

    Didnt know that you could use the same letter twice so couldnt finish it from my 2nd attempt about.

    The same letter used twice is what threw me yesterday, cheeky monkeys. It went unsolved.

    This morning I got 4/5 letters correct on my first guess, solved in two! The word I tried first isn't one I've used before, it just popped into my head as I opened the app, really weird.

    Never heard of this before but found it on powerlanguage website - is this what everyone is doing or are there other ones?

    Anyway, got it in 5!

    Never heard of it before, I've just had a look and got today's in three. Is it the same word for everyone? I actually pressed the wrong key while having my second guess, deleted it and changed the middle vowel to a more common word... should have left it!!
    Very lucky with my first attempt to get three letters in the right place.

  12. #12
    I got yesterday's and today's in 2. Most days it's 5 or 6.

  13. #13
    Yes its the same word for everyone.

    I use EARTH as my starter word, 2 vowels and 3 common letters.

    Best result is 2 so far, worst 5.

    Soare (young hawk) is also a good first word apparently

    Presumably it does check words against a dictionary?

    Yes, American one though. Last week "FAVOR" was an answer that annoyed a lot of British players.

    Just tried hard mode. You have to use each revealed clue in subsequent guesses. I think I've been playing by these rules anyway - I can't work out why you'd waste a guess by not playing a word that couldn't be the answer.

    Ah. I haven't had the need to do that yet as I've always managed to think of words that meet all the previous criteria that have been revealed.

    Which is what hard mode makes you do. It's not the most efficient technique though.

    It's the natural thing to do of course, moving the orange ones and testing new letters on with the remaining spots. But if you try 2 different words you can test 10 letters in 2 gos. There may be value in this, perhaps depending on how successful your first attempt was.

    Tried today for the first time.

    Misread the colour meanings.

    Kept tapping the same correct letters in the incorrect places until my kind gave up and I ran out of goes.

    3/5 on 2nd go and just got worse from there.

    Looking forward to tomorrow.

  25. #25
    Played it for the past four days.

    First time it took until guess 5. Each subsequent game I have managed in 3.

    So far I am beating Mrs gbn13, but I dont think that will last.

    Id never heard of this, just tried it and got it in two, must be beginners luck because essentially, Im an idiot! I did have to turn on the colour blind setting as well, this is a very welcome addition.

    Edited to say I got the wrong end of the stick, there are no clues.

    Got it in 4 today but was much happier with the 5 I managed in Absurdle.
    Now that's a hard game!

    I got my first in 2 today. 3 correct letter on the first word and whilst only the first letter was in the correct position, the other 2 I had guessed correctly provided me with all clues I needed to know the answer.

    Got today in 2! Albeit due to getting 4 letters in the first word.

    Yesterday's was so hard. In 3 didn't tell the whole story. I think with how my letters were eliminated the answer was the only correct word.
