I think after my fourth attempt today I just stared at the screen blankly for about 10 minutes absolutely bereft of ideas. 


I usually play just before bed, so I went to sleep and came back to it over coffee. Mostly because I nodded off while staring at the phone in bed, dropped it on the floor and woke my wife up. She was not sympathetic.

I was really stuck on the fourth go and sat there for 10-15 mins before punching in ABBED which I wasn't even sure was word. I'll take it!

Does it actually check that your entry is a real word or could you try e.g. AEIOU?


It says "not in the word list" and it doesn't count as an entry (though you don't get any clues from it).

Yeah - it won't accept it. The screen shakes at you as well, as if to tell you off for trying to cheat.

After seeing this mentioned in the 'Pics that make you laugh and makr RLLMUK argue incessantly' thread I've been doing this for the past couple of days - Been very lucky so far I think (2 x 3rd lines & 1 x 4th)

Throw the letters you want to test at it in an order that could plausibly form a real word…and you learn a lot of new words.

Just hit midnight here so this is number 209. I wish I hadn’t rushed, my 4th guess was not plausible at all and if I’d spent more time thinking I would have surely found the right answer.

If anybody is interested in cheating and has no care for getting as few tries as possible- the following seems to always work:

 

 

Spoiler

RATED

SONIC

FLUMP

GAWKY

 

Leaves very letters left.

Wordle 208 6/6

 

🟩⬜⬜⬜🟨

🟩⬜🟨⬜⬜

🟩🟩⬜⬜⬜

⬜⬜⬜🟩⬜

⬜🟨⬜🟩🟩

🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩

 

Spoiler

ARISE

ALECK

ABOUT

 

Couldn't think of anything that fit AB_E_ so I tried ruling out more letters:

 

PINED

GAMEY

 

...And then I couldn't recognise a word that fit AB_EY with one of my unused letters in the gap. I ended up trying all the remaining possibilities of nonsense words like ABXEY and ABFEY and ABQEY before I remembered that double letters exist, so I could use a letter that had already turned green!

 

This one did not make me feel like much of a smart ALECK. :(

Spoiler

BROAD

TABLE

ABBEY

 

I did even think with the letters remaining between words two and three that it might end with BEY, but that still took me some long hard thinking.

I notice some people are putting full solutions in the spoilers, some are leaving the Wordle itself off their lists… is there any sort of a consensus on what we should be doing best practice wise?

 

I’d been putting full solutions previously as I was personally only looking after completing them, but happy to fall in line if people would rather they weren’t there to accidentally see.
