Do you Wordle?

.

I didn’t, but now I do.

.

.

And damn, judging from my very first attempt?

I rock!

.

.

Considering I had no earthly idea what I was doing, I am proud of myself.

In case you don’t already know Wordle is the new game that’s taken over the internet. It’s web based, not an app… and you can only play once a day. So while I think it’s going to be addicting, there’s no danger of wasting countless hours staring at a screen.

The premise is simple. The daily puzzle is one 5 letter word and you have six chances to guess it. Everyone gets the same word so it’s become something of a world wide competition.

Sound simple? Trust me, it’s not.

While I lucked out on my first puzzle and guessed it in three, the next day I didn’t guess it all and was extremely frustrated. (I will henceforth hate the word knoll and it’s dastardly kn consonant combination.)

So Google “Wordle… A Daily Word Game” and give it a go.

And let us know how you did.

  1. I have a group and we all send our scores first thing in the morning. My friend guessed today’s on the first try. She thought it was a glitch so once told her what my word was she sad that was it. Lol. Crazy. Took me 5.

  2. Once a day is not worth my time. The game I am playing these days is Word Trip. It is annoyingly religious, and very prurient, but its premise is good, and it is finite. The biggest problem is the game-writers are not well versed in the English language, They do not allow some words, and the points system is totally screwed up. But. It is addictive, and I am addicted.There are daysI play it for close to 10 hours, until my eyes are going buggy. I am closing in on 5000 puzzles solved. If you haven’t already tried it, Rg, I think you would like it. And we can battle it out every few days in their three-day tournaments.

    1. Never mind, man. It’s only offering it to my phone and my hands are so shaky I can’t even do a sudoku or write a text. If I can find one I can play on my laptop, which is now more like a folding desktop, maybe we can compete for world domination then. OK?

      1. Lol. Unfortunately you can truly only compete with yourself. Though they run these things they call tournaments not everyone is playing the same games, so points are not comparative.

      2. I’ll let you find one. Whereas I used to be quite competitive I hardly play games at all anymore, and certainly not for the competition. I only play Word Trip about 20 minutes a day of late. I am reaching the end of its available, so I am making it last, lol.

      3. I understand that. I remember a thread about pool and not having the killer instinct. I’ve always tried to make the hardest shot, whether it was of any benefit to the game as a whole. If I see one that looks likely, I’ll let you know. Have a good one.

  3. Love it! At the moment, I’m 15/15 (100%) . . . but today was almost a break in my winning streak since it took me 6 tries to figure it out.

    Like you, I love that there is just ONE word a day. I do it before turning my attention to the NY Times puzzles.
