Perhaps one way of thinking about it is this. If you get it right in one go, that's 100% luck. The more tries you have, the more skill or intelligence is displayed.

I've been skunked a couple of times lately - it all depends on that first word, or second word if first was a complete dud. Maybe I need a word with as many consonants as I can manage, not vowels.

A very rapid three today. This is in total contrast to last night, when Mrs Steve and I tackled Wordle after a couple of glasses of Nero d'Avola, not at all our usual approach. We got a five and a six, narrowly avoiding defeat, and concluded that Wordle is best tackled with a fresh mind, preferably after a strong morning flat white...

Maybe but things can change...

I had my second failure since I last posted here. It was one where I recognised the same place I'd been once before (same letters correctly placed and 2 gaps to fill. I also remembered realising after my (correct) guess from there last time, I'd got lucky and there were numerous possibilities. This time, I decided to waste a word to reduce the words that would fit the pattern but it wasn't enough to save me on my 2 remaining guesses.

From there, it's been 4 or 5 on the days (I missed one or two) I've played it. Today was 4.

I see that the NYT has removed "fetus" from its bank of answer words. Just as well, as, among other things, they can't even spell it. ;-)

I used a throwaway word on the third row and got lucky today. I was going to make a remark about the nature of the word itself, but must resist, because that would be a spoiler.

Mrs Steve also suffered last-letter syndrome today. She adopted (after a lot of persuasion) the Jon Freeman throwaway-word strategy to nail that last letter and got it in four.

Two! I got just three orange ones in my first word. I'm not trying a first-word strategy any more. I pick up a book or mag and use the first five-letter word I see that doesn't look too outlandish, which has mainly common letters and which has five different letters.

I've just looked at the Facebook Wordle group and someone posted OUIJA as a five letter word with four vowels. Along with AUDIO and ADIEU that gives me three starting words. Anyone got any more?

I got today's in four. It looked impossible on go two.

Robo, in case you missed it before, you need to convert the special characters to HTML to get it to work here. There are a number of online HTML encoders around but not all work for this.

This is one I know does work.
