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.

I'm a copywriter, I have never heard of this service and over the last 72 hours, people on Facebook and my Twitter feed, and one on Instagram have all been asking "what's this Wordle thing I've been hearing about?"

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 6:14 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.

Maybe it's good to just randomly type letters on the first two tries to get as many correct letters and then work from there.

They were yellow and I used them in the same spots for #2 because I forgot that yellow means the letters are right but in the wrong places. I felt like such an idiot, wasting an attempt.

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 3:17 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 3:34 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 3:56 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.

I usually complete in in 2 or 3 attempts.

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've occasionally gotten it on the 3rd try and a couple of times it took me 5 tries. But the 4th try is my sweet spot. I almost always get it on the 4th try. 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.

R286, I needed one word as the clue. My second word was the correct answer. Nobody is ever going to randomly write down the day's word in the top line. But one or two, pretty cool, I think.

Yes, r288.

Today’s is a tough one.

by Anonymousreply 299January 18, 2022 5:13 AM

Given the nature of the game, I don't see why one day's puzzle would be tougher than another's. Unless the answer is a word that's obscure or even unknown to most people?

by Anonymousreply 300January 18, 2022 5:50 AM

Today I cut it close...took 5 tries.

I would say today's is harder than usual because it's a word that would garner high points in Scrabble. The previous few had a few vowels and "common" consonants.

by Anonymousreply 301January 18, 2022 6:41 AM

No hints, r301! Why did you post that?

Now players who know Scrabble have a heads-up but less satisfaction in solving the puzzle. Thanks.

It took me every try today but I finally got it. I did not read this thread until after. The thing I like is you know it has to be solvable. You just have to try harder.

by Anonymousreply 317January 18, 2022 7:36 PM

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.

by Anonymousreply 318January 18, 2022 7:39 PM

today was my 15th puzzle and the first one that I didn't get. I had most of the letters by the 3rd attempt but there were just too many words that could be made with them.

1/19 = Line 3 correct! With 1 letter from Line 1, that in the right spot. (Line 2 just eliminated 4 more letters.)

(I considered the correct word for Line 2, but chose another, obviously.)

by Anonymousreply 331January 19, 2022 12:32 PM

Everybody said yesterday's was hard, and everyone's saying today's is easy. But I got both in 4 tries. I didn't think today's was that easy, but then again, I took somebody's advice and started with "adieu," which threw me way the hell off by not giving me any leads on the consonants. Never again.

by Anonymousreply 332January 19, 2022 12:41 PM

r332. It works, your second guess should in this case then be a word without the vowels from ADIEU which contains four consonants and the missing vowel. So I got it with three.

I'll tell you tomorrow, how I did it.

In all instances I prefer audio as my first word only because I find it easier to imagine/place an e just looking at the screen, though arguably the same logic applies to the u. Lately I've taken to writing out the alphabet on a scrap of paper and crossing out the used letters... I find cross checking that the word leaps out at me.

ALIEN and ROUST will get you through all five vowels and the common consonants L, N, R, S, T. But you will throw away your first two chances.

paste the grid here, but hit return at the end of every line. Otherwise pretty sure it pastes the whole thing horizontally.
