    One play per day. It’s totally addictive!

    Wordle - A daily word game

    (Everyone gets the same word each day, so please don’t spoil it. Thx!)

    Yep.
    Myself , the wife and our two kids are desperately trying to out-do each other on this.
    I will say the usage of American English, rather than proper English, as spoken on the civilised side of the Atlantic, has caught us out a couple of times.
    Great game.
     
  3. It gave me “xxxx” . I wouldn’t gotten that word in a hundred years!

    No spoilers. The whole world gets the same word each day. Please edit your comment.

    I just heard about this last week. Tried it for the first time now. I guessed the word in 4 tries. Beginners luck?? OK now I can say I tried it. I'm not a big word puzzle fan. I'm too sydlexic.

    It's fun, and just enough every day without turning into an addiction. I also enjoy the "Spelling Bee" at the NY Times website, but it's not free.

    Yeah, I started Spelling Bee. Really fun! When I hit about 20 points, I got a pop-up telling me how good I am and how they'd let me continue playing for $5/mo. :rollno:

    I read an article about the creator of Wordle. He said the one-per-day is the key to keep people coming back without falling into an internet chasm.

    We switched our print subscription to online, and decided to splurge on the puzzles.

    Yeah, NYT is running a promo right now for $1.50/wk for unlimited online access. Considering the money I've spent on bass memberships I don't use, it's hard to say it's too expensive... lol.

    Today's was a bit tough. I had a 5 letter whiff on the first try, and I took the full 6 to get it.

    I thought I had it in 3 but I had one letter wrong. So close!
     
  17. I don’t know how, but 4 guesses. This game is very hard for me.

    Most days I get it in 4. Very occasionally I’ll hit 3. I’m looking forward to a lucky 1 or 2 day but it hasn’t happened yet. As long as I’m solving it I’m happy. Such a fun little break in the day.

    Wordle bought by the 'New York Times' - CNN

    New York (CNN Business) — The New York Times has acquired Wordle, the explosively popular game that gives players six chances to guess a five-letter word daily.

    The Times, which announced the purchase of the game on Monday, is adding the puzzle to their portfolio of word games such as The Crossword, The Mini and Spelling Bee. As of December 2021, the New York Times (NYT) has over one million Games subscriptions.
