Sooo... anyone else enjoy this to waste their time?
Wordle 256 3/6

⬜⬜🟨⬜🟩
⬜⬜⬜🟨🟨
🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩

I've been playing it for a little over a month. Usually takes me 4 or 5 tries to get the word. Sometimes I will solve it in a couple minutes, sometimes it feels like I spend 20 minutes sounding out non-sense words in my head around the letters I have already gotten right.

Please, please, don't start posting your scores...

You bastards

It turns out I was playing a knock-off for a month until the app's name changed, likely to avoid a cease & decist/lawsuit

4 tries yesterday (first time playing), 2 tries today :p

And perhaps we should open a dedicated thread in the game forum. :)

Ask and ye shall receive! :)

Silly question but is the word the same for everyone?
Not a silly question, and yes it is :)

I thought I'd hate this but I don't. It's like the old Fallout 4 terminal hacking.

I really like the lightweight result sharing mechanism.

Also, for everyone who's bored with the regular, play the voluntary "advanced mode": you have to use all discovered (green & yellow) letters in subsequent guesses.
I bet some of you are doing this anyway, but it does make the game easier to just go with totally unused letters on the second guess, just to have a bigger chance of hitting something (see narf's first try above).

Yeah I played it that way too but it's only my first go. Shame I can't go back and try the previous ones, seems like an obvious omission.

Edit: There is.

yeah todays word was really weird to me tbh... that 4th guess took me a while. but maybe that's just me, not being a native speaker.
I don't have that excuse but I do keep making dumb mistakes. The yellow letter in 4th and 5th position in my run was the same one, I should've known not to enter a word with it in a position I had tried before.

I'm still playing by the 'hard' rules I suppose, I prefer it like that.

This was a weird one. I keep forgetting that
letters can appear multiple times in a word, and was looking for a consonant I didn't use yet (S was out from the beginning) for the start -.-

You can use Internet Archive to access previous Wordles. RIP the spare time of anyone who's been looking for a backlog.
