Completely hooked. Like others, wish I could play more than once a day. Maybe two or three times; any more than that and I'd be useless for anything else the rest of the day.

There is, however, an element of 'good guesses'. I've gotten a few words in two only because I had two or three letters and maybe one or two in the right square. From there I just "guessed" the next one correctly; it wasn't tactically brilliant.

My partner, who is also hooked, plays every day as well and we compare what we've done and why.

He's also hooked on the NYT 'Spelling Bee' and every day we each try to get the Pangram. That's as far as I go; I don't have the patience to find 25 or 30 other words.

Great fun in these crazy times.

Today was spoiled for me because the word was revealed by The Times due to global freak outs over the spelling... they used the American spelling of the word, which, of course, wasn't intuitive to any country that uses British spelling. The inventor is Welsh, living in NYC. Nothing's ever simple. (I wonder, if you study English in France or Spain or China, which version of English they teach?) I was pissed off at The Times. They could have told the story without blowing up the word. Anyway, I bet it will be long time before they use a word with that combination of letters again.

No way that's a coincidence. The Datalounge doesn't just have politically paid shills here, (like the ones who keep posting the Trump investigation stuff and parroting daily DNC talking points. ....not that I don't support the news behind those messages), but with the deluge of women, trans/queer kids and the over-60 crowd who have found and settled the site in recent years, we've had more and more of these types of threads. When you've been around here 20 years, you tend to know. This thread is one of them.

R95 it only shows the letter once for each time you guess it, so if a word uses the same letter twice, you have to input it twice for both to show.

Wordle is such a simple idea and it is really bringing people together - people discussing their strategies, what words they use to start with, how their brains work differently.

Although I did see an argument between two academic men over what word is most effective to start with, whether vowels or the most common consonants are the most useful to work out the word.

by Anonymousreply 121January 12, 2022 5:14 PM

R121, I read something like that in The Times this morning, ranking vowels vs. common consonants, vs. frequency of position of a letter within a specific word, drawing in the Official Scrabble dictionary. It was fascinating and entertaining for how the wild fire spread. I do use a couple words to start the process now: audio, adieu or, sometimes, skate. It kills a bit of the luck buzz but ups the challenge of sorting out the clues.

I did the trick where you use a high vowel first word and then sacrifice what you got right with an alternate vowels or common consonant second word, hoping to nail it in three. It didn't really help but I think that is more down to the actual word today than the process.

R160, me too. I get up, get my coffee, feel glum and sour and then I remember: Wordle! And I perk right up. It's the jolt I need to face my early January pandemic day.

ALIEN is another good word to use for the first guess. You use most of the vowels and two common consonants.

by Anonymousreply 177January 14, 2022 2:17 PM

Today was a tough. I got stuck with the first 3 letters right. I just couldn't come up legit words to even be wrong. Once the 4th letter came, then it was a matter of 2 tries to get the 5th letter.

I was ready to quit and come here to lament.

by Anonymousreply 178January 14, 2022 2:34 PM

ALIEN is a very good word.

Seems outside the vowels the most commonly appearing consonants are R, T, N, S, L, and C. I another source that said RETSINA (which wouldn't work in Wordle) also nails the most frequently occurring letters.

So ALIEN has everything but the T in retsina. STORY might be a good second word - gets you the O & the Y and uses the T. I play a strategy now of a high vowel first entry and then a consonant killer for the second word, hoping if an answer doesn't emerge I can get it in three with reason and process of elimination.

And on that note I note I didn't get it in six this morning despite everything!

by Anonymousreply 179January 14, 2022 2:56 PM

The best thing I do is write the alphabet on a pad, cross out eliminated letters and write potential solutions. I’m also really strategic with consonants.

You’re an idiot. You do realize the game resets at midnight with a new word, right? If you solve your puzzle at 12:00 or 12:01, you do not get the next puzzle and have to wait a whole OTHER 24 hours. I solved 1/13’s puzzle at midnight and did not get today’s 1/14 puzzle. It said I have to wait 24 hours until I get another puzzle.

So basically I’m going from 1/13 to 1/15. It’s a glitch in the system. Try it tonight. Keep your puzzle open and solve it after midnight. Then you have to skip a day without playing.

I usually waste my first two attempts with ALIEN and ROUST trying to get the vowels and common consonants. I think I'll try a different strategy tomorrow to see if that improves my chances.

This is why starting with ADIEU is a good idea. It instantly places or rules out four of the five vowels. For today, it tells you that (or at least implies) that you’re stuck with O and either Y or a three consonant cluster, like TCH.

Third try -- "impressive", it says! Process of elimination works, there are only 5 vowels in the English language and only 26 letters in the alphabet -- it also helps to have a vocabulary large enough to suggest a potentially correct answer using an unlikely combination. As Sherlock Holmes pointed out: “When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

I tried with the hard mode. Just a bit challenging but sweeter when you got it😜

Completely blew it and lost a ten day streak. I got hung up on the usual combo of the first and second letter, even once it was ruled out and stopped seeing and thinking. Argh! You hate going down on something so in front of you....

It turns out I’ve been playing in the hard mode this whole time, albeit with the toggle on easy mode. I’m not entirely sure why you’d do it any other way, though I guess you’d wipe out other letters pretty quickly.

R569, I don't understand your block configurations.

R570, What makes you think your toggle was haywire? One can't play both modes (I tried), so whence that conclusion?

by Anonymousreply 571January 25, 2022 1:22 PM

R571, if you mean the layout I didn't add returns. If you mean how it played out line by line, I often pump in couple different words just to see what gets caught in the net. So line two ignored what turned up in line one. Same process for line three. I was just stumped and having a bad Wordle.

R556, I've been playing in hard mode even though I have the toggle set to easy. It never occurred to me to not use the letters I have gotten right. Guess I'm not an out of the box thinker.

[quote] What makes you think your toggle was haywire? One can't play both modes (I tried), so whence that conclusion?

No, I just meant, like r573, I was playing with the toggle on "easy mode" but using the "honor system" where I used all the letters and placements I’d previously found even though I didn’t have to.

R574, But are you sure it's the same word? That's also what I thought was different, but maybe it is only the method of play.

[quote] Anyone else not really care about how many tries it takes them, as long as they get it?

Yeah, no one cares how many tries it takes. I purposely put in wrong words just to get additional letters. I guess those are wasted tries but who cares? I would much rather do that than sit there trying to it figure out without additional letters.

I was reading an article that said ROATE, not ADIEU, is the best word to start with to eliminate possibilities.

Anyone try it?

I got it in two today.

CREAM, BROKE, BRAIN are the words I usually start with. I'm 11 for 11 and usually get iT in 3 or 4 tries.

R561, that's me exactly. I plug in my letter trawling words and then figure it out... I either nail it four or it takes all six. I never seem to settle on five often.

R577, what does "roate" mean?

r582, glad to know I'm not alone!

I was nervous after starting today’s puzzle. I got 0 out of 6 letters the first 2 attempts. The 3rd try I got 4 out of 6 (and was able to get the right word on the 4th try).

Oops. Make that 12 in a row.

Close call just now...

Took me 5 attempts to get it as opposed to my usual 3.

by Anonymousreply 588January 26, 2022 9:29 AM

I didn't know there was a hard and easy mode. I just thought that if you get one or more greens in the first or second guess then it just makes sense to try five new letters for the next. But now I'm afraid to switch to hard.

Buggered it up again today. I'm going toof ast.

R593, What about the ast part, right after the toof?

Been playing with hard mode. Not much different as I was doing that similar method before.
