There's going to be a few of those today I suspect

 Slackboot 15 Apr 2022

I have been playing Wordle for a few months now and for the first time today I thought I would try another game owned by the NYT. I accessed 'Spelling Bee' from the 4 horizontal line icon on the Wordle page. I was really enjoying it. Then after I had got well into it, hooked as you might say, a notice came up saying if I wanted to play any more I would have to subscribe! All the other NYT games are the same.

I wonder if this is a harbinger of things to come?

First time ever failure today. I knew as the second line came up. I counted 7 options with only one missing letter. Needless to say I guessed wrong every time. Very annoying, but I've been expecting this for a while now.

 David Alcock 17 Apr 2022
In reply to Pedro50:

Yes, 4 today. One of those 50/50 choices.

I vary between hard mode and calculated mode. I prefer the latter because there's less luck involved. Today I did hard mode. But I can almost guarantee a four with raise clout & nymph. But I always aim for three, else where's the fun?

It is starting to pall a little for me. A pleasant diversion before lights out and sleep. I can't get my average below 3.8 without wasting too much life, and even the good computer solvers struggle to hit 3.5. So, I suppose I feel that I have its number. I'll still play it though!

In reply to Andy Hardy:

Yes I did but I have no recollection of any of the words ☹️, can't even remember any of the Quordle words from today and that was only an hour or so ago. I only (now) remember today's Worldle because the Mrs is struggling to think of any word that fits and I went back and looked.

I think yesterday was where I had a 3789, lots of pressure on the last 3 words (I'm obviously better at remembering numbers).

Surely the core of any word that has a prefix (such as dis-) must exist even if it is no longer in common usage. Counter examples welcome.

There was only one possible solution left — and this wasn’t it. (xxxxx is a valid guess, but it’s not one of the 2,309 Wordle solutions — sorry, I don’t make the rules.) But there’s still only one solution remaining. You should solve the puzzle on your next turn.

My second ever failure too, after foyer recently. These words with loads of possibilities really highlight the randomness element of playing on hard mode so I might switch it back for future games. I enjoy the challenge of it but not the frustration of it basically coming down to luck on a day like today - especially with a word with little recognition outside of the US.

Par 4 for me. A relief after yesterday. That was the worst of those where you have multiple options and nothing to do but guess. The worst was that each wrong guess seemed only to reduce the options by one. I had at least three left when I failed. 

I have tried to think of a stategy for early rows that reduces exposure to this but haven't found a sound one. Even with endings there are OUND, IGHT and OUGH to name but three that will likely ruin your day, never mind ones like yesterday where the common letters are split.

I hate it when I fail, but I like this game.

When I looked at it again later (whilst the Mrs was doing it in 3 😁) I found another 5 or 6 possibilities that weren't eliminated by my first word so I was luckier than I thought - or maybe the skill was not trying to think of all the possibilities at that stage.

I presume you have an app (or the list of Wordle words) to be able to tell how many solutions are remaining.

Do you check whilst you're doing Wordle, or do you check retrospectively to see how many of the possible solutions you had thought of?

Checking whilst doing the puzzle gives you an advantage.

Ah! I missed that. On a later page it disagrees with itself and says 3.4 steps. Even I can average less than 4 (just!), so I think 4.4 would be unlikely for a bot, if it is at all drenched in data and versed in what to do with it.
