1. Agreed

My first time playing I got a 2. I'm solidly in the 4 after playing some hundred rounds. (Link below for playing random seemingly endless rounds.)

https://wordle.berknation.com

I've been playing where I use the prior winning word as the starter word for the next round. Makes it more interesting than just using the same tried-n-true 1st guesses over and over. Although, I sometimes make an exception if there are letter repeats.

7. I was stumped because I didn't think something could be done.

Wasted 30 minutes going through various iterations and finally said to myself, try it, what have you got to lose. Voila! It worked.

Can't figure out how to post finished puzzle, but got it in 4.

Read further but be warned there is a spoiler:



Did not know you could use a letter twice.

10. Thanks. Guess I'll have to start using my iphone to play.

Have been using my Window's based laptop and there really isn't a way to copy or cut & paste.

11. If you're talking about the image I posted (and I'll re-post it here),

Wordle 215 4/6

⬜🟨🟨⬜⬜
⬜🟩⬜⬜🟩
⬜🟩⬜🟨🟩
🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩

In the upper-right of the screen on your solution, there should be two icons. One is a "settings" wheel, the other
is three blocks, a tall one in the middle. That's the one to click. An information screen will appear with a button that says "share". Click that, and the image (like the one above) is automatically copied. Then, in a DU post (or wherever), Ctrl-V will paste it.

I'm using a windows laptop

14. I should get promoted to "AlsoABozoOnThisBus"

But I'd be in a higher tax bracket then.

15. Me too.

I probably didnít realize the same thing you didnít realize. I got the first 2 letters quickly and ultimately finished in 4 tries, but my fourth guess was out of sheer frustration because I couldnít find any letter combination that worked.

I now have a love/hate relationship with Wordle.

9. If one skillfully blunders onto a bunch of letters in the.initial shot in the dark...

luck has nothing to do with it.
