    I have also been playing FOCLACH for the past week or so and although I am as far removed from a fluent speaker as one can get, I have only not got one game correct.

    I messed up with my third guess there, forgetting I had the second letter correct. It still helped I suppose.


    I'm not fluent either, but I've always been better at vocabulary than sentences (in any language, including English 😀).

    Definitely a more difficult game in Irish, and not just because of my more limited vocabulary. A letter in a certain position narrows it down a lot less in Irish than English, for example in today's case there's an endless list of Irish words with i as the third letter and h as the last.

    I accidentally cheated because of your spoiler, although I still managed forget one of your 'clues' on my first guess. 😀

    I seem to struggle to even think of a word in Irish for my second guess but it eventually comes together, usually. I don't like the strategy of using completely different letters for your second guess in Wordle when you have some right, but in the Foclach it definitely helps, since my Irish vocabulary wouldn't be as big as in English.

    No worries! 😁 It's just hard to unknow things sometimes. 😉

    Tough one tonight. Guess 5 was a last ditch attempt to identify any of the remaining 2 letters 🤔

    They seem to use a set of more common words for the mód laethúil than the practice mode. Presumably the daily words are chosen by someone and tend to be straightforward terms, while the practice is just drawn from the random database which leads to more obscure words and words in different tenses and cases.

    Left my brain at home this morning and kept using words with a particular letter as the 5th, despite finding out on attempt 2 that it was not correct.
