Created by a guy from South Wales. He has refused to sell adverts on the app, so just for the fun. Legend.Β 

Β 

I did it for the first time last night. Got 4 letters in correct order by guess 2, but took 4 goes to solve.Β 

I don’t understand the sudden fascination with Wordle, it’s just Lingo.

Β 

I fear this is going to reduce my chances of getting on the show

Aha

I got it in 3 too.

I think it’s down to having a better opening word. When I reuse the same one every day I can’t beat 4 tries.

do people have one opening word? i switch it up every day

you’d want something with a lot of vowels i’d imagineΒ

Did it last week once (in three), yesterday and today - in three both times. Nice symmetry: 3 days, 3 attempts, 3 moves, 3 successes. Obviously have to stop now or I’ll ruin my figures.

I just tried this. Didn’t get it as didn’t realize it allowed repeated letter words. (And don’t complain about spoilers)

Fixed it for you Risky ;-)

6 for me today. Even after getting the second, third and last letters right it still took several tries.

Did well today

PP, deliberate.Β 

I currently think that the chances of getting it right in two is so small, that if only one right in first row then a better strategy for minimising average score is to use five completely different letters in second row.

Today's is hard

Elffi’s strategy is correct. Cover as many letters as possible in the first two or three then it’s essentially anagrams

I like to kick things off with STARE as it has the two most common vowels and three very common consonants. Then second guess will be five brand new letters - eg MOUND (or whatever takes my fancy). Third guess I try to firmly locate some orange letters by jiggling things around. Then it's down to business.

Do they vet as to whether your attempt is even a word? (Can you just enter "AEIOU" as the first try? I suppose that would be cheating ...)

No you have to use a word. I tend to whack out two or three words at the beginning of every game that cover most of the common vowels and consonants...

STARE is a good one triangle

most common letters in english (generally, different studies give slightly different answers):

E T A O N R I S H

ORATE looks like a good starter as well

I prefer not to use S in the first two rounds. Β Creates opportunities for a plural in the third or fourth round: otherwise it can be hard/impossible to find a word with the combination of letters that you want to test.

Love to see all these scientific theories. Basically the first word is luck ( Chill’s theory only works if the word is random rather than chosen for its difficulty) and it’s the choice of the second word that makes all the difference (based on the result of the first word).

Even if you make maximum use of information on each round, luck still enters into it.

Must just be very lucky then. Never yet taken more than 3 moves.

Have you guys noticed in settings the hard mode? Where you have to use previous correct hints instead of wholly new lettered words for your second guess.

4 today. I somehow went for a less obvious word after my second try which tipped me off to the "form" of the word.
