Does anyone else play it?

I had to google it, Maggie, as I had never heard of it.

It could be fun but it could be addictive.

The glory is, you can only play it once every 12 hours :-D

had to google.
It looks to be on similar lines to the games with coloured pegs - Mastermind? That was a while ago!

Got it in four words :-D Now I have to wait until 1.am :-\
That's a bit rubbish!

Ah ... another thing to get hooked on.

It's like Lingo, which I found on TV one afternoon.

Makes a change from online jigsaws, for which I set myself target times for completion.

Good thing is you don't have to pay for it and they're not harvesting your details!! Bad thing is American spelling :-)

Only occasional American spelling!

I've done it in 4 twice in a row, more luck than anything else probably. Have been doing number games on a free site recently so this made a change!

I hadn't heard of this game until Maggie put up this thread. Tried it last night and didn't get it but just tried this morning and got it in 4. Glad you can play this game online because I don't have a smart phone so can't use apps.

Yes I played it because of a post on fb and the 1st one I didn't get but tried again after seeing this thread ,have got the word in 5 both times.

As thought, this is addictive!

2 daughters, grandson and I are all hooked and usually 'play' early in the day and they share their scores.

My score has not been 100%, but now improved since I choose my starting word to contain at least 2 vowels.

Love the comments, when the game is completed, ranging from Phew, after many attempts to Magnificent, when I guessed in 2 words.

Grandson doesn't use 'correct' letters for his next word, but chooses different ones to eliminate them.
I tend to use correct letters in the following word.

I think the first word is the most important. :-D

Anyone who enjoys codebreaker puzzles should be good at Wordle.

I'd heard of Wordle but not tried it until this morning. Got the word in 2.


Try these (but there are lots of online codebreaker sites) :

Thank you (I think) Argyll Gran - another game to play! :-D

There is a Wordle2 now with 6 letter words.

Wordle has just been sold to the New York Times for a 7 figure sum.

Hope they don't mess about with it!

There's a site called 'East of the Web' which is primarily a writing site but has a load of word games. I enjoyed using it, but since the demise of the Flash plug-in, the games no longer work.

A family friend got yesterday's Wordle in 1.... wonder what the site's comment was for that ?

An element of luck for me this morning getting 4 correct letters in my starter word... and 2 of them being in the correct position.

Like Kath, I hope the site doesn't change too much.

I, by chance, got todays in 2 - apparently 'magnificent' :-D

Gwyn in Kent

Gwyn in Kent Report 1 Feb 2022 14:33

2 for me too, Maggie :-D

As long as I can reasonably keep up with the younger family members, they will hopefully think I'm not past it just yet ;-)
