    wowsers, that took me until the last go, spent ages before my last chance just trying to think of any 5 letter word with my remaining letters….

    Spoiler:
    STARE
    PLEAD
    WAKEN
    ACHED (so at this point still only E and A correct)
    BOGUS (just to hopefully coax new letters from 4 not used yet, all i got was a B in the wrong place)
    ABBEY

    had to walk away and leave it 15 mins or so, then it just came to me when i thought about the possibility of any double letters. was determined not to give up.

    Today pretty much as per @blokeuptheroad, without the fourth line.
    A good way to spend the time waiting for the kettle to boil and coffee to steep.

    @danposs86 – very similar to me. I must have spent 10 minutes staring at it trying to work out ANY words that would fit after I’d got to the point of the two greens!

    Second guess was a mistake, went hunting for more vowels, should have focused on consonants.

    Same here but went 50/50 on my two thoughts and went the wrong way.

    Agreed, got there in 5 but having got the first 4 getting the fifth one right within 6 just came down to luck.

    Failed two days on the run so pretty pleased to get today quite quick.

    Tried this harder version yesterday, there’s a long explanation around what makes it different, but I couldn’t get my head around it.

    Worth a look if you’re desperate for another fix

    Absurdle

    That absurdle is quite nice.

    My understanding is that absurdle does not select a word at the beginning, but instead prunes the list with each of your guesses until only one word remains (kind of like highlander;-).

    So the challenge isn’t to “guess” the word, it’s to prune the list to only a single word in the minimum number of steps.

    My best so far is 11.

    Scratch that, got to an answer in 8.

    I got today’s Wordle (14 Jan) on second attempt! Well chuffed with that.

    I wonder if anybody has entered the answer as their first word…

    Premier Icon edhornby

    question:
    If you used the Miketually method ROUTE followed by SNAIL, if you got an amber on the first would you still go for the second regardless?

    Premier Icon miketually
    Free Member

    I find it useful to rule out/in some more letters so almost always use SNAIL second. I might not if I got a green.

    Premier Icon DrP

    I started with SCOPE. Nil.

    Then, for some reason, chose THIS…. click for the grande reveal!

    I always use ALIEN and then YOUTH to start.

    Identifies all possible vowel sounds in two goes.

    If you used the Miketually method ROUTE followed by SNAIL, if you got an amber on the first would you still go for the second regardless?

    I start with IDEAL and decide the second word based on the response to the first. I think you are better to work on consonants with the second rather than persisting with vowels if you hit a vowel in the first. I tend to use words like TRAIN as the second, depending on the results of the first (TRAIN is good if you get a yellow I and A, for example). Sticking with the same two starting words is mostly just wasting opportunities to get information.

    Premier Icon hels

    I quite like starting with GREAT or ABOUT, they use lots of commonly occurring letters and I do like to narrow down the vowels as soon as possible. I think a lot is luck (sorry) I have scored two a couple of times (have been doing it for about 10 days) I am usually 4/5 and got a 6 this morning. I think I perform better when I do not over think it!
