Wordle: Everyone is Suddenly Playing It

Ah, oke. Well, maybe it’s because I’m Dutch, but I never knew that was a ‘thing’ about the German language (lots of long words in other languages too).

Yes - the running joke in English speaking countries (going back centuries - Mark Twain made remarks about it) are about how amazingly long words can be in Germanic languages (thanks to compounding). Thus for an English game with a 5 letter limit, it amuses us to picture the German version having a dozen letters ;)

Its always just dumb luck to do it

Haha, it was the only word I could think of that would fit and it was the right one.

A very “two-able” one today it seems!

As with a lot of games it’s a “managed luck” thing - one’s average over a bunch of rounds is a much better reflection of knowledge/approach than individual day results certainly.

I tried to share this the right way but it didn’t work but FUCK ALL Y’ALL I WIN

Damn repeating letters.

This is perhaps as good a place as any to ask about good word games, be they on Steam or web-based. I enjoyed the hell out of Bookworm, Bookworm Adventures 1&2, and Letter Quest and don’t mind more abstracted stuff (along the lines of Wordle) as well - any good suggestions?

brave robin robot. And I’m not going to tell you how long it took between guess 2 and 3. No way. Move along, nothing to see here.

The jump from 3 to 4 took quite awhile…

I like Word Hero. it’s sort of Boggle with Scrabble style scoring.
