Wordle, anyone else addicted?

It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

No but just tried it after seeing your post.

Can see it being addictive, apart from you've got to wait for another go for ages.

Does everyone have the same word?

Yes, which adds another edge to it.

It changes every 24hrs, I didn't get my first one as basically didn't know what I was doing(well that's my excuse!)

Is it on Twitter or somewhere else?

There's a TV quiz show called Lingo that looks similar.

Click on the link in my op, it's a web page, the developer refuses to allow it become an app as he feels the app will be laden with adverts and he has no interest in profiting from it

Thanks epaul, I solved it in 4.

On first glance, it seems to me that if you find a letter but it isn't in the correct position then you don't use it again in the first 3 lines, because that's wasting a space.

Of course you could use it and hope for a lucky guess.

An educated guess I reckon, as happened today

I had 1 correct and one in wrong place first guess, I used both for subsequent guesses and got it in 3.

Lucky first time
