    As a meta puzzle, I’m now thinking about what Jimmy’s guesses were. (Nice job, BTW)

    Yes, I was just wondering how long it would take professional code breakers to figure out your starting word assuming you always use the same starting word.

    I’ve used RIGHT the two times I’ve done it and taken 3 guess both times. Whatever that means.

    I used MEANY when I tried it for the first time today, got it in 4.

    STARE seems like better one for elminating common letters though.

    Yep, I would say that was luck as there must be quite a lot of possible words for the second line however good your first word is.

    American spelling of word today, one to watch out for as it is an American game I suppose.

    My Mrs was less than impressed that it was american spelling, especially as it’s hosted on a .co.uk so you’d have thought english spelling

    Spoiler:
    was just going to post the same but put it in a spoiler. took me 5 today because of that.

    had tried razor and major, started at it for ages before plumping for ‘vapor’ first, then that could only leave favor.

    After Twitter discussion, I’ve landed on:
    ROUTE
    SNAIL
    for my first two goes. Gets you all the vowels and both words are in the word list so there’s a chance of getting lucky.

    so even if the word was CREST say and you had a few letters in the wrong place, youd still plump for SNAIL rather than pick another word containing those letters?

    No, they are 2 words with no mutual letters, so if you get nothing with the first, the second works well.

    most overtakes in the 2021 season.

    Yeah that was mean – got it 4th line though (without previously knowing about the spelling).

    With it being American English I suppose TIRES is another good word for first guess!

    Got yesterday’s in 3. First time felt good.

    Failed today due to American spelling.

    Tires is also proper English. Not just American for tyres.

    Yep, couldn’t get today’s despite having the letters in place and hardly anything left sensible left to choose from!!

    I’m not vexed at today’s being US English.

    It depends how many letter I got from the first word, and what/where. I find that ruling in/out another 5 letters is useful.

    didn’t even clock that! I’d heard the creator was US-based, so just assumed it would use a US dictionary (although having just googled it, he is actually British, just lives in NY 😀)

    Good point, that is enough to tell me I should stay the hell away from Wordle

    Well I have established that it allows rude words. Has one ever been the answer?
