They went easy on us today. :slight_smile: I almost went with Dumpy, but I could see that I may not need it, so I just tried to solve. Didn’t get lucky with Chunk, but it helped a lot. I had Sluff and Chuff for both of those words too, but I decided to go for the MP. And I got lucky with Datum over Gamut…I know we’ve had Datum several times before, but I don’t think we’ve had Gamut before (not sure).



Nice! :grinning: I had some words to sort through after my start words. But it all worked out well, as you can see.

Another pretty lucky start; after two guesses I had COUNT wired.

Spoiler for wordle #1117:

Survived a major trap tonight. Five possibilities with two guesses left. I came up with a good sleuth word, but if that had failed it would have been 50/50 on the last guess.

Kept my streak intact.

This one took some amount of strategic thinking - I wasn’t really seeing a good enough sleuth word, so I just tried to choose the best words for each one and hoped I’d get lucky. It didn’t seem I’d fail going that route, but I wasn’t too sure…so I’ll happily take the 8 on this one.

ALLOY - 4
ANVIL - 5
BACON - 6
FIGGY
JIFFY - 8

I didn’t get much info from my first two guesses. ALLOY, ANVIL, and BACON were all hopeful guesses that worked out.

For the last word, I thought of JIFFY or PIGGY, and maybe a few others. I had three guesses left, so I thought FIGGY would be a good enough sleuth word.

I was really glad to get Liken vs. Liven correct, as I wasn’t seeing a sleuth word that’d cover both that one and the _ROWN trap, which BEFOG thankfully helped with. I’m not a fan of Ralph for an answer word…they’ve used it before though.



Phew! What sleuth did you go with? Do you check the previous answer list? I do that and it really helps. I forgot about Jaunt though, but that’s been used. In hindsight, I should have gone with Gaunt before Daunt…I don’t think anyone ever uses that without the ‘ing’ or ‘ed’ ending. Someone said it wasn’t a viable word per the Wordle Bot, but who knows if it’d be used.

I had _AUNT, with five possible answers. I used TIGHT as a sleuth word. That covered TAUNT, GAUNT, and HAUNT; 60% chance of a hit. If that had failed (40%), I had to choose 50/50 between JAUNT and VAUNT.

If I’m doing the probabilities right, that was a 20% chance of failing (half of 40%).

If there’s a better sleuth word with four of those letters (T would have to be first), I don’t see it.

Does anyone else play Quordle and Octordle in tandem? I place my first two guesses in each game. Then I’ll solve one Quordle and then two Octordles and repeat until finished. Then I’ll play the sequenced version of each. When I’m done with those, I’ll play the rescue version, where I’m Rambo guiding a group of doofuses out of the jungle (on Mondays, I do the Bonus “Challenge” Quordle in tandem with the rescue Octordle).

The doofuses rarely make use of all their vowels in their first four moves (and when they do, they always neglect to play Y and/or W). I’d estimate I have about a 75% success rate with these tourists.

PS I’m new to the thread. What’s the secret to posting the result image like you guys do? TIA

In order, I play wordle, quordle, sedecordle (16 words in 21 guesses), then NYT connections, and I recently started strands.

After completing quordle, it gives me an option to copy the results to my clipboard. Do that, then create a reply in this thread, and paste the result (ctrl-v).

No emphasized textOctordle? I do Wordle after I finish Word Hurdle five-letter, six-letter, and Phrazle (those three refresh twice daily), then Quordle/Octordle, then Connections.

I just now finished my first Sedecordle, and tbh, it doesn’t feel like that much of a challenge. Maybe the sequential version will.

No octordle for me. No particular reason, but I think sedecordle was the first multi-word version that I tried, so maybe I still play out of habit. It’s not super-tough, but I don’t win every time.

There was a 64-word version that I tried a few times.

Heh. Did they give bonus points for guessing the one letter that wouldn’t be used?

Is there some rule that all letters can’t be used?

I sometimes check at the end of sedecordle. I’ve seen it use 24 letters across the 16 words.

That was a joke. 64 words using significantly fewer than 26 letters among them? It is to laugh. Look at me laughing. Hahahahahahaha!

I used to…I played all of the Octordles. I liked the rescue one…shook things up from the same ol’ start words and made for a bit more of a challenge.

I currently play Wordle, Quordle and Sequence, and Connections. And I just started playing Circuits Game (a word connection game) and Waffle Game (Wordle-like game), which I just discovered recently.

Yeah, unfortunately there isn’t one, but at least you can narrow things down with a sleuth word, and better if you can find one that leaves the least amount of words left like you did with TIGHT. I’ve had to use two sleuth words in one game before…I’d rather not, but sometimes it’s necessary.

CHEAT
ROUND
SLIMY
TALLY
APTLY - 5
WHELP - 6
GROWL - 7
AVERS
CURVY - 9

After TALLY failed, I was a bit worried, but then the answers started to fall into place. APTLY gave me the P for WHELP, which gave me the W for GROWL. And then AVERS as a sleuth word for CURRY/CURVY.

Thanks. I had a couple streaks in the 80s, but 100 was the goal. I was kinda sweating it out for the last week or so. Almost threw it away with a silly mistake a few days ago.

SLIMY
SLICK - 4
MUSKY - 5
AGATE - 6
JEWEL
EXPEL - 8

AGATE turned out to be a key guess. It turned out to be right, and eliminated some possibilities for the last word. I was thinking BELLE, but AGATE showed that it couldn’t end with E.
