No, sir, I did not.

Seems like they’ve flipped the difficulty switch recently, I got this simply by thinking of the “strangest” word that would fit.

Yeah. Not going to say the NYT ruined the game, but it’s not as fun as it used to be with all these harder words.

I’m on my longest win streak yet. If someone’s got any deep analysis with some science to back any of this up, I’d love to hear it, but it’s hard to believe it’s meaningfully changed from a bunch of anecdotes.

Probably just random, the run from late last week to today had at least three really rough ones I remember. EGRET, LILAC, SEVER was a particularly notable run.

Edit: I haven’t played Quordle in forever, but for some reason I destroyed it today:

Fail - I used to have comfortably more 2s and 3s than 5s and 6s. How I just have 4 more 2s and 3s.
I’m definitely struggling more over the past several weeks.

new one - better than my last fail

I’m four choices in, found the second-and last two letters and have no clue whatsoever what this is supposed to turn into. All I can do at this point is try random letters to see what sticks. Great fun…

Edit: and literally seconds later it hits me. So obvious!!!

man, haven’t had an eagle in an age…

holy crap, how random is it that your second word was my first! I pick a new word every day, and just grab something from my mood, or whatever it is i’m thinking of. I have no idea why i thought of that word, i’ve never used it before, but looking at ti’s construct, i’m like…good vowels, good consonants, sure, go with that one!

Ha, weird! My wife uses the same starting word as me, and a few times we’ve ended up playing the exact same guesses for the whole thing, that always feels a bit odd.
