Wish I'd gone for the U with the Y in the 3rd guess now, but I couldn't think of one without using a letter I knew wasn't in it.

This is quite fun, but it feels like you can 'cheat' it by just guessing as many different letters as possible to eliminate them quickly and force the algorithm into a corner. I guess that's the point, but with unlimited guesses you don't get the tension that you do from the normal game. Maybe it would be better with ten guesses, instead of six?

Β 

After playing with it for a while, I think the plan seems to be to try to force it use letters that you want it to. It's taken me a while but I've managed to beat it in 5 turns (hard mode), by getting it to just use the vowel E. (I thought it was going to dodge the last guess, but it doesn't seem allowed to use SKEET). I wonder if it's doable in 4?

Got this right and went "GET IN!" loudly, which was promptly broadcast to my daughter's (unmuted, which was news to me) online learning class - they all giggled and her teacher had to ask everyone to calm down. 😬

I usually get tripped up thinking it can’t be that easy/obvious and choosing the more obscure options but I think the only slightly obscure word I’ve had is the one I failed (rebus).

PATIO

CHURN

FURRY

QUERY

Β 

I took a gamble with Furry thinking maybe it had two Rs, and with Curry already ruled out ... still, I got it on the next go.

Β 

I need to think of a good second word to use if PATIO draws a complete blank.

Β 

Β 

If PATIO is your first word, then I'd go with RUNES as your second in the event of PATIO getting no hits. That's all the vowels, and n, p, r, s, t out the door as well.

Β 

Any tips for a second word if RATES draws a blank?

HOURI gets rid of the rest of the vowels if that's your plan, but it's using that R again (useful if the R is present but incorrect). FOLKY would be OK too. If you hadn't got a vowel yet, but the Y hits, then you have options of _U_ _ Y words perhaps, and you'd have already elimated BULLY, DULLY, SULLY, PUFFY, FULLY, LUCKY, MUCKY and loads of others with that guess.

Β 

FWIW, if getting vowels is your thing, I've just found MIAOU (variant spelling of MEOW) works on Absurdle, so should work on Wordle too (I just remembered it from a recent cryptic crossword).

Β 

I'm still new, but my gut says getting consonants is more useful than vowels.

That's my thinking - I'm still going for a 3/2 consonant/vowel split. If you're using the common ones, even if they miss you whittle the options down a lot.

Β 

With MIAOU as potential second guess I'm thinking about chancing a 4/1 split perhaps as first guess. CERTS, CENTS, DENTS for example. Worth a try, perhaps...

STERN may be better. Wordle doesn't seem to do plurals so the S at the end isn't too high value. S at the start is great though, and ST there is pretty good, and the E in the middle gets you a green light if it's a double E in either 2 and 3, or 3 and 4.

Β 

I'm definitely slightly obsessed with this. OK, actually obsessed. It's like catnip to me. Must switch off. I'm out of here now (until tomorrow).

I just saw this thanks to another thread. So played. And it's quite mind melty and annoying and it took me far too long to even think of a word for what ended up being my last go.

Β 

Then I saw this massive thread.

Again, using the sub-optimal but challenging strategy of having yesterday's answer as my first guess:

Β 

Spoiler

GORGE

REALS

BRIEF

TUNER

Β 

At this point I knew it was _UER_, but I couldn't think of anything that fit that pattern! My mind kept fixating on QUEUER, which is one letter too long. So I went for something that didn't quite match the known pattern, but might give me a bit more information:

Β 

CURED

Β 

... and then IΒ  messed around typing random first and last letters until I stumbled on Q and Y, and realised it's a real word.
