Today’s was over quite quickly. First guess paid off and narrowed it down hugely.

5. Should have been 4. Thought it might be my first failure. At Wordle, not life. I’ve had loads of those!

Tactics. There were far too many possibilities left after the second go, so tried playing a word with 5 new letters to narrow it down a lot and it worked quite nicely.

Anyone tried the 6 letter game from nicholaldo's link on pg2? Very tricky!

I'm trying to work out if there is statistically, by way of most commonly used vowels and consonants without repetition, an optimal word to start off with. In doing so I have deduced that the worst opening gambit must surely be 'queue'.

I thought it time for me to investigate this new fad. The colouring had me flummoxed for a bit, but managed a five. :oops:
