    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.

    Three attempts. But I was drawn to the word as I was thinking of a certain member here....

    All 6 for me, as my brain refused to let me go there as it being a word they would be used.

    Managed it in four today which seems to be my average. Ive been mentioning it to kids of people since I started playing it at the beginning of the week. I love it.

    That must have been the best clue since Wordle existed and anybody needing more than one attempt should immediately delete their account.

    Managed it in two today. Total fluke, but my pride shows I obviously dont have a much else going on in my life. Haha. No need to comment.

    4 today, again I got pretty lucky with my first word and filled the middle three letters.

  16. #66
    Four for me today again. Two is my lowest attempt and six my highest but I have managed to get all six Ive tried so far. I do start to get twitchy if I dont have it after four attempts though.

    introduced GF to it after doing a couple of days myself. She now hates me as she simply didn't get it at first and then spent ages doing it without success.

    I did it in 3; another reason I'm not popular today

    quite enjoying this as it is a quick process and gets the grey stuff working.

    I like this game because depending on your word choice what's hard for you might be easy for someone else.

    I got today in 3 which felt great as I only has one letter, the vowel, in the right place and the other letter could have gone anywhere. I chose the word more for the letters it would eliminate rather than because I thought it was right.

    Quite tough one today (Monday) - needed 5.

    Bloody hard! Last guess for me, I only had two letters correct and one in the wrong place - took ages trying to suss out a word with the weird set of unused letters I had left.

    Really tough one today. After submitting my 4th word I still only had 2 letters correct and what seemed to be a strange set of impossible letters left, it took me 5.

    First time trying today after getting my head around the rule. Fun game to warm the brain up.

    Got it in 5 in the end. Wasn't 100% about the rules, for example being able to use the same letter twice, or not !

  35. #85
    My first 6 today, as my two standard start words, which take out 38.46% of the alphabet and account for 56.6% of letter frequencies were all blank. Grrrrrr.

    Annoyed by my first ever six, I decided to create a spreadsheet, using an English letter frequency table, to determine possible useful start words. The first I happened upon was from Cornell University.

    Using Excels XLOOKUP function, I created a spreadsheet which can score start words by adding the component letters frequency percentages. While this is clearly not going to assist with all Wordle games, as todays has shown, it may be of use.

    My personal favourite (before creating this sheet) was, FEAST.

    F E A S T 37.82
    2.3 12.02 8.12 6.28 9.1

    Here are some others that have been suggested in this thread, as useful start words:

    A D I E U 34.65
    8.12 4.32 7.31 12.02 2.88
    T H I R D 32.67
    9.1 5.92 7.31 6.02 4.32
    A I R E D 37.79
    8.12 7.31 6.02 12.02 4.32
    E A R T H 41.18
    12.02 8.12 6.02 9.1 5.92
    S O A R E 40.12
    6.28 7.68 8.12 6.02 12.02
    A U D I O 30.31
    8.12 2.88 4.32 7.31 7.68

    As you can see Earth provides most coverage, in frequency terms. What then could be the best start word using this frequency table? Well the best I could come up with is: ATONE - 43.87

    Letter frequency is probably less important than letter/word patterns in solving Wordle but, it's a good starting point.

    A 5 for me too. Took until the fourth go just to get one letter in the right place. Also took me a hours to get through as I seemed stumped to even think of the words for the letters I had. Still, its no fun if its easy.

    5 today for me, the jammy wife 4.

    As SJ observed the start really matters...Only tried my first one yesterday, 5 as well, fun though.

    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.

    Six days in and not had anything worse than a 5 (that was yesterday which was tricky). Only a matter of time before it falls apart though. Still waiting for my first two.

    Using 5 letter words and 6 guesses, I'm not sure it will fall apart and I think thats why the game is so successful...a good 3-5 minute daily diversion that makes you feel like you might not have got it before you succeed. The creator also got it right making sure you could only play once every 24-hours.
