    Anyone doing it?

    I never do crosswords or anything but I've become semi addicted to this even though I'm not great.

    After thirteen days I've a 54% success rate. My longest steak is 3 and my quickest guess is line 3 (twice).

    Was stuck on it for over twenty minutes one day but still couldn't get it 😞

    Myself and my wife are addicted to it, only just managed to get today's on the last guess.


    I've played for 8 days, 88% won with 5 being my longest streak.

    What's your opening word or do you change it everyday?



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,583 ✭✭✭ chooseusername


    my efforts so far ;

    Kinda limits me but I usually go with


    Train

    Then House


    Get all the vowels out early but it limits me as I'll never get a two unless extremely lucky. Couple of 3s doing it this way though



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,888 ✭✭✭✭ ohnonotgmail


    a nice way to spend a few minutes. A good first word is really important. I normally use TEARS as it has the two most common vowels and 3 very common consonants. I used ADORE today to mix things up a little.





  • Registered Users Posts: 5,760 ✭✭✭ eddhorse


    I normally use ATONE first, 3 vowels helps.

    The tricky ones are when the same letter is used twice.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,888 ✭✭✭✭ ohnonotgmail



    ATONE is a good choice for a first word. I'll give that a go tomorrow.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,583 ✭✭✭ chooseusername


    Showing two correct letters but in the wrong place is a great start for anyone thinking of doing today's puzzle.

    I was using TEARS as a starter for a while, but a suggestion on twitter I saw was to use AROSE and UNTIL as your first two guesses. This captures all your vowels and most common letters.

    If you're playing on hard mode though you can't do that, so I'll usually go with AROSE and then find somewhere to put a T into the next word.

    I usually start with a vairation of house/mouse/louse. I've been lucky with that opener and have got two second line matches so far.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,547 ✭✭✭ Alkers


    I have 14 streak ATM, one 6 and two threes. Very hard to get less than a three.

    Have a look at the points for Scrabble letters, which are linked to letter frequencies and give you a great steer in which letters to try and use earlier.



  • Registered Users Posts: 871 ✭✭✭ Tazium


    I like 'About' and 'Dream' for openers. It's very clever puzzle, enjoy it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,888 ✭✭✭✭ ohnonotgmail


    managed to get it in 2 once in 27 goes. A good result from my first guess followed by a bit of inspiration



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,132 ✭✭✭ Fian


    usually "speak" for me, then if no letters hit follow with "doubt". usually enough information after those two to rule "i" in or out too. as soon as i get a green or yellow I keep them in from then on, I don't use a word i know is incorrect just to rule in or out letters. I can see the benefit of that but since i have yet to go beyond 4th line with my strat I figure it is unecessary. maybe when i have lost one I will reconsider.

    arose and until look better than my strat to now though tbh. may use that in future.

    I've only played 6.

    Started playing 12 days ago and have 12/12 but the graphic above showing I got it in one is incorrect. That was day one and I’d already played and got the word but I entered it again not knowing what I was doing.

    Using the American spelling last week made for a long game 😂

    And I have used the starter word EARTH every day.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,851 ✭✭✭ messrs


    Today is only my second day playing it - got very lucky this morning and on my first guess I got the first 2 letters correct in the correct place. Second guess I got another letter right but in the wrong place. Got the answer on my third go. If you use all 6 guesses and don't get it correct does it give you the answer at the end?



  • Registered Users Posts: 971 ✭✭✭ wildwillow


    First game today. Same letter twice made it difficult but solved on line 5. I'm a cryptic crossword fan so love this also.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,955 ✭✭✭ AllForIt


    I think it's a bit on the easy side. Never taken me more than 4 moves. Only been at it for a week mind.

    I think there’s also an app where you can select a harder mode. I’m just using the website to play.

    I cleared my phone history yesterday without thinking about wordle so it’s reset.

    I got it on fourth go so I’m 13 for 13



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,494 ✭✭✭ thesandeman


    Lol @ today's. I got it on three.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,851 ✭✭✭ messrs


    Took me 4 guesses today



  • Registered Users Posts: 423 ✭✭ AlfaZen


    If you want to maximise your vowel count on the first word try ADIEU and follow it word containing a T an R and S depending on what you have right and or in the correct position from the first word.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,888 ✭✭✭✭ ohnonotgmail


    I had the last 4 letters correct on my third attempt. Was not expecting THAT to be the word so it took me took more attempts to get it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 39 galwaydoc


    Got it in two! Just started playing yesterday.
