Thanks for the heads up. Just downloaded it and gave it a spin. It's pretty doable, especially when they prevent you from entering some words because they aren't on their list. I was able to solve the first 3 I tried with only 3 or 4 tries. The blurb on the link says a new puzzle every day but I was able to keep playing.

I recently started playing this. I'm not usually one for online games, so I tend to forget about it till I see someone post their results for that day. So far, I'm enjoying it.

NYT bought Wordle last week - betting it's going to become an in-app payment model of some kind soon. We play it as a family every day and share our results in a text thread in the name of playful competition.

And if it does become a paid model, I'll move on. It's entertaining, but not THAT entertaining.

I love it! My co-workers have a sharing text string. My friends and family do it. I'm hooked.
It puts me in a good mood every morning.

I kept seeing references to it. My son explained it to me last weekend. I’m hooked. A nice way to start the day. I don’t want it to allow more than one puzzle a day or I will waste more time!

I play it every day and love it. I have a digital subscription to NYT so, hopefully, if they put it behind a paywall, it’ll be the one I have access to.

Yes. I noticed that in the OP, the link for the game was a website powerlanguage.co.uk. Now if you click that link, it's the NY Times.

That's excellent. I don't have a NYT subscription, and doubt I'd want to start one just for the side benefit of playing Wordle.

If I have a complaint about the game itself, it's that there is no clue as to which type of word they're looking for that day. If they offered some kind of a clue it might give a better direction to things. It's easy to find yourself convinced you've got the right word, only to learn it was completely wrong. But how would you know that? Offering a clue similar to how crossword puzzles have clues would make it more interesting, I think. Maybe it's just me.

We do the same thing with our family spread thousands of miles apart, except we don't really mind how many tries it takes to get the word. We're impressed when you can make a lot of words with the remaining letters! It's fun to see everyone's guesses.

I play it every day as well. @MichaelColey told me about it on Facebook.

Today's word was tough, took me five turns to get. Usually I get it in four.

There's another app, PuzzWord, that's similar except you can play more than one puzzle a day - a single game continues until you can't solve a word. I use it to practice when I have a few minutes.

Wordle is part of our family text groups, too, and we've developed a pattern of seeing who plays in the morning, who plays at suppertime, who jumps right on the next puzzle when it changes at midnight.

I saw this story on the 6 o'clock news last night. Whoa!

I have to disagree. To me, that’s part of the allure of the game. Most mornings, I start by trying to identify the most vowels with a word like adieu. Some mornings, I just try to identify a couple vowels and a couple of the most used letters like D, S or T. And, some mornings, I feel adventurous and see if I can get inside the creators' head and take a wild guess. To me, it's a lot of fun starting from zero without a clue and seeing how long it takes to figure it out.

It's obvious I need to play it longer. It's great that you enjoy it so much. I'd hope to become a bigger fan of the game. :thumbup:

SPOILER ALERT



We had never heard of it before reading this, and then misunderstood how it was played. I thought it was similar to the game hangman, so after my first guess was WHILE and it liked the L and E, we spent the time trying to come up with five letter words ending in LE. It didn't like STYLE, but it liked some of bUgLE. Then gUiLE and tUlLE(tulle) didn't work and we were done. We stared stupidly at the answer for a minute before realizing that the U,L,E could be in any order in the word. Duh.

It can be frustrating, when the word you KNOW is right isn't. :D (That's what I meant above about having some sort of clue. Is it a noun, a verb? Something like that.)
