    Nah Rio, using a cat is definitely cheating. Be ashamed.

    I think the guy who sets the word knows the common strategies and chooses the word accordingly.

    I’m pretty sure it’ll just be a random word from a list of 5-letter words.

    Edit: It is apparently not even random and easily predictable. Explained here:

    From the list of answers, this is the letter frequency. This might differ slightly from a more general corpus because high-frequency words tend to be short so including 2, 3, and 4-letter words might have a higher proportion of vowels, for example.

    Have we sucked the fun out of it yet?

    I’m late to the party but got the first two in three attempts. I do like a word game. This reminds me of the word ladder game that was in the I newspaper which was a good challenge.

    I struggled today because after 4 goes I was sure knew what the answer was, but thought it was spelt with a different first letter – which stumped me as wordle said my spelling wasnt a word. Got it eventually after mulling it over thankfully

    Another one where it was going so well then I tried to be clever rather than going for the obvious one. Still, completed it anyway so that’s a win in my book.

    Playing Pure Wordle seems to make it harder for me. Either that, or old age is ravaging my brain.

    Still today’s answer might be a reasonable start for tomorrow.

    Playing Pure Wordle seems to make it harder for me.

    Its meant to.

    Although I thought pure wordle was starting with yesterdays word and playing the letters you already know and not using letters already discarded.

    I only ever go forward in that I don’t use discarded letters or contradict clues. Should I be playing a different game?

    Just had a go for the first time.

    In your representations what do the grey squares and xs mean?

    I assume a grey square is incorrect and a x is correct.

    How do you represent the right letter, wrong place?
