I only had 2 letters to work with, finally I got a third one. I learned the word from The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit

Easy to get the first three letter positions, but there are too many alternatives after that to get the puzzle in three without some luck.

I was stunned by the results for my second word. Next to last letter R, I really expected a Y at the end. And I had a very hard time thinking of a single eligible word that fit after that. Put down the correct answer thinking β€œNo way they use that word, but I am stumped.”

Rats, I really thought it was going to be SPIRE. Should have known better.

It seems a lot of us ended up with β€œSPIRE” as our second to last guess, hehe. A friend of mine who goes by β€œRingwraith” online was very disappointed in himself for taking six guesses to get to the answer.

My gut was to go with that as my second guess, but like many of you didn’t think that word likely made the list and figured β€œspire” was more likely. But lo and behold!

Kicking myself because I thought of SHIRE on row 3, but thought it was too British a word to be the answer. Maybe it’s Wordle making amends for FAVOR.

look at the TLD for Wordle, it is .uk so…

also not too British a word, certainly post LotR its well known.
