Continuing the discussion from "Wordle," a strangely compelling word game:
I’m splitting this off because I feel like discussion will get buried in people sharing their results.
I’m curious about how y’all approach Wordle. Do you play normal mode or hard? Do you always start with a word like ‘ratio’ or ‘stare’ to hit common letters, or do you pick at random? Do you have any self-imposed rules? I saw one poster mention always using the previous day’s answer as the next day’s starting guess. I think it’s an awesome idea, but I keep forgetting to do it.
- Hard mode.
- Different starting words each day, usually the first decent one to pop into my head.
- After that I try to eliminate the most common letters, with one prohibition:
- I generally don’t reuse letters unless I’m absolutely stumped, even if it would be the most efficient play.
