    Wordle -- New viral Internet game

    Anybody here play Wordle?

    What is Wordle?

    "Wordle is a daily word game you can find online here. It's fun, simple and, like a crossword, can only be played once a day. Every 24 hours there's a new word of the day, and it's up to you to figure out what it is. Where do I find Wordle? The game is web-based, so there's no official app to download [although it's not for lack of trying by a few copycats].

    "You can play using a mobile or desktop browser; just go to www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/.

    Yeah, it's just a word game. But it's super popular: Over 300,000 people play it daily,
    according to The New York Times. That popularity may sound perplexing, but there are a few tiny details that have resulted in everyone going absolutely bonkers for it."

    Guess the WORDLE in 6 tries.


    Each guess must be a valid 5 letter word. Hit the enter button to submit. After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word. Letters that are in the word and are in the correct spot will then turn green, letters that are in the word but in a different spot will be yellow, and letters not in the word of the day will be gray.

    A new WORDLE will appear each day.

    Yeah, I'm playing it every day. I'm on a personal-best 3-day stretch where I've gotten it with three guesses.

    Great to hear from you, Jerry. I had two days in a row with two guesses. It's a rage on Facebook with my son and neices. Thought I would try it. I'm hooked. Today, I went into the archives and played some of the older ones.

    BTW, letters can repeat. You might not know that.

    The "kids" post their final results with just the boxes with no letters. That's tricky
    to obtain.

    Until your post, I didn't know there was an archive. Looked it up and lo and behold, solved my very first game with two guesses. Even a blind squirrel can find a nut once in a while!

    Also, Jerry, you can find sites with answers. I hit a real stumper and got tired
    after three tries. The word was an odd one.

    I found the archive and did ten games. I was all over the place with responses of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 guesses and one loss.

    Nice to have another word game. I have Jumble and Jumble Crossword apps that I do daily. I also have Penny Dell Crossword which is easy and I usually play while watching TV or have insomnia. Iíll add Wordle to the daily routine. Thanks for posting the info.

    Not sure what happens to our totals when we go into archives.
    Does it matter?

    We have a weekday TV quiz based on these rules. It's called "Lingo" and it's on ITV at 3pm.

    Lingo seems to require two players or two teams, while Wordle can be played alone -- good for solitary people while isolating.

    Oh, somebody else lost one? I thought I was getting down and then I dropped one. I had X X C A L in my fourth guess. Of course, my next was L O C A L [stupidly ignoring the lack of an "L" in the first letter of my previous guess; duh!]. My sixth guess was V O C A L and the answer [obviously] was F O C A L.

    OMG! Great word game. It is similar to the Lingo quiz show on UK TV, but on there they give you the first letter!! This is harder

    I thought it was hard today. Too early to think.

    Yeah, today's was a doozy. Used all of my guesses and daresay I was lucky to solve it. Took about 15 minutes.

    Edit: For some reason, formatting of my Wordle results doesn't work on SDF. The �� are my correct guesses.

    Let's see if I can explain this ... Click on the icon at the top right of the daily game page. It is to the left of the star and looks a little like a three vertical bars. A window will open with an option to share. Select that and a message will appear that says "Copied results to clipboard." From there you can paste your blanked out results into Soulful Detroit, it seems.

    I found this out through tenacity. I have no instinct about this. Just tried and got lucky.
    As you know, I have much experience cutting and pasting into SD these days.


    [My son said there's a "share" button on a mobile website and he then texts the results
    to himself. Over my head.]

    That's exactly what I did. It pastes correctly in other sites [Twitter, other message boards] but not on SDF. I post it in other sites with regularity. There's something odd about my site privileges.

    Jerry,

    I get the same result as you when I hit "enter" on SDF. The one above
    with my results, was broken up and maybe reformatted.
