    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.

    9A, thanks for posting about this game. I heard about it from news reports and friends. I used your link and tried it. I got today’s word in 4 tries! Maybe beginner’s luck.

    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. I’ll 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

    My Wordle 219 4/6







    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.

    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.

    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.

    I was worried about today's puzzle. I had no letters in the first guess and had to look at three yellow letters for 15 minutes before things fell into place.

    Getting my groove back. I almost lost it yesterday. I wasted one guess
    using a letter that had already been disqualified. Today I tried something
    that wasn´t a word. The game was kind enough to let me know without
    penalty.

    I'm enjoying this game, so far, after only one week. In addition to the daily game, I'm also doing 10 games from the archive each day. Some words are easy others a challenge. I use the "Hard Mode" setting which alerts you if you don't use a "revealed hint" in a "subsequent game". That helps a bit, although I am careful not to make that mistake.

    Okay, I thought I was on Candid Camera for today's puzzle. Zero correct letters in the first attempt and then, guessed the word on the second try. First time I've gotten one in two guesses. Might be a good day to play the lotto.

    Yeah, some of them take longer than others. I did today's while knowing I had 20 minutes before I had to get up and go to church. Fortunately, it didn't take too long.

    Saw that story this morning. I got myself all comfortable in front of the TV hoping for an interesting feature but it was a light commentary instead. Still entertaining.

    I have been doing 10 games a day from the archive. Today I had a toughie on Day 69, [I think]. The word was OFFAL. Not sure I ever heard that word before. I plugged it in on my 5th try as a wild guess.

    Has anyone tried 6-letter games? I think I'll wait until I finish the archive 5-letter games.

    Jiminy Christmas. Not a single letter right in the first two words? This game is anxiety inducing.

    Even though you didn´t get any correct letters, you were
    still able to eliminate ten. Do you guys look at the keyboard
    with the disqualified letters for assistance?

    Guess who´s doing Wordle now? So far, nothing notable to report.
    He thinks it´s fun. Sometimes it is.

    Oh, the keyboard is a lifesaver. It's like having crossed out letters when playing Hangman. Just saw where the New York Times bought the website. Good from the standpoint of keeping the bootleg apps from flooding the market, but bad from the standpoint of inevitable ads and possible erosion of game integrity.

    Oh no. Will the games start out easy on Monday and get harder through the week, like their crosswords?

    I definitely rely on the keyboard but it does distract me from considering reusing a letter in the word.

    This one should have been easier, but it took about 5 minutes to figure out. Probably should have taken two fewer minutes after I got the second and third letters. Only one word made sense.
