three today.

The original is one of my favorite movies of all time. Until Alien, space movies painted a romantic picture of space, as many oaters did for the west. Alien was just a gritty movie, about a space freighter, with ordinary crew members, squabbling about things like working conditions and compensation. Workers vs. bosses. Grimy, junky interiors.

OATER, by the way, is a great WORDLE word if you're a voweler such as I. Occasionally I've tried searching for consonants first but it just makes me feel so .... so .... disemvoweled.

**********

Started with AUDIO today, just because I hadn't used it for awhile. I concluded that the out-of-position I that AUDIO generated was most likely in position 2 or 3.

STING checked for the I in position 3, as well as hunting on four common consonants, including S and T, which are two of the consonants I go after first.

STING confirmed the I in position 3, and also eliminated words ending in ITE, ISH, ITH, ITS, IST, INT, ING, IRT, IRS, and probably others I can't think of. So many possibilities are gone, that I think that maybe there's another vowel in position 4 or 5. An A in position 4 is possible, but the only word I can think of is ALIAS, which I eliminated in guess 2.

But if I put an E in position 4, then my out of position N slides nicely to position 5, leading me to ALIEN. But I can also put the N in position 2, which leads to ANILE, and ILE is one of the endings not eliminated by guess 2. ALIEN seemed to me a more likely solution than ANILE, so that is what tried.

I'm not a stranger to solving it in three, using my second word to get the more vowels and really helped.

I took a screenshot at 3 because I thought I had it right. Wordle was not as excited, so it’s a 4 for me.

I am a little in the same camp as @Patri. I took four, but really thought that my second or third word was going to be the correct answer.

three again

After guess 2 I deduced that A must be in position 4. So the solution is SxxAx, with M filling one of the positions. I can't come up with any words using remaining letters where A is the only vowel in position 4. So I decided that the word likely has another vowel, which must be E, a second A, or a Y. I can't come up with anything words using A or Y as another vowel, so I focused on finding a spot for an E.

Playing with options, if I moved the M to position 2, I was looking at SMxAx, with E needing to fill in position 3 or 5, E didn't fit in position 5, so if my word had an E, it was likely in position 3. So, if my pathway was correct, the solution needed to be SMEAx. SMEAR was the only option that fit.

And 4 for me, also.
I wanted to start with a new word today, one that incorporated a Y. THYME got the M and E out of position. To move the M and E and add another vowel to the mix, I went with FEMUR. Got the ending R and ruled out a couple more positions for ME. As I was looking at possibilities, I tried MxxER. I noticed I could turn that 2nd x into an X and MIXER would be a perfect wordle word. Nope, not that easy. So, now I’m stuck with xMExR. It took a few minutes, but I finally got to SMEAR.

Five. Three tries to get the one last letter with four letters already correct and in the proper place.

Three again.

Pretty straightforward. Guess 2 putting the U in a new position and a hunt for consonants.

After guess 2, I though the word might start with UN, so I was looking for something that would fit a UNxIx pattern, and that didn't use letters I had already eliminated. UNFIT is what I came up with.

Three. Seems like forever since I got one in 3.
I used a new starter word, TAUPE, looking for some vowels. Got the U and T out of position. That left me with O,I and, possibly, Y as remaining vowels. I thought maybe OU was the ticket and tried CLOUT. No O but got the T in the correct ending position. I spent a lot of time here looking for and ruling out possibilities before finally seeing UNFIT.

Four, but I needed my morning coffee. I ignored having a letter in the correct position on my first try until the end.
