Addicted to WORDLE

Any WORDLE’rs out there, I just broke my 56-game winning streak two days ago.

I’m on a 37 day streak. I wish they would do an AM and PM game.

My streaks 53 presently, won 95 or 97 so far. Here’s a good practice site that will provide some practice and a guaranteed time waster. Plays generally the same as Wordle, but has a more expanded dictionary I suspect. Some really odd words. Quordle

I tried wordle…
After you solve it… there seems no easy way to end it. I gave up!

Regarding the current NYT-based original WORDLE game: Wordle - The New York Times

Not sure I understand “no easy way to end it.” It ends when you solve it and it’s blank the next day. There’s one game a day. When you solve it you just close the site.

Could it be you tried a copy-cat game and not the original WORDLE?

Since you like Wordle, let me recommend the following:

WORLDLE – geography – Worldle (teuteuf.fr)
QUORDLE = Wordle x 4 Quordle

I do those plus original Wordle every day. My geography skills have improved, too.

I like the original game. It fits into my daily routine and doesn’t tempt me to waste a lot of time on it because it’s limited to one game a day. I try to use a new 3-vowel starter word every day and I continue to be amazed at how many 3-vowel 5-letter words exist in our everyday language.

I have two friends I exchange results with every day. Here’s my stats so far:

Have you tried Nerdle? It’s a math game.

I play Wordle, Quordle, and Nerdle with two friends. That’s about all the bandwidth I have for these things.

Here’s an interesting WORDLE guess pattern that a friend sent me today… no yellow squares.

I also like Worldle — it challenges you to identify countries from their map. My geography has improved a lot since starting it!

Still playing Wordle and Nerdle… up to 159 straight Wordle wins, but had a scary (Whew) 6 yesterday. My neighbor introduced us to another clever word game called Waffle (https://wafflegame.net/) the other day which is a bit of a challenge in a different way.

I’m still doing just WORDLE. It’s handy as a first-cup-of-coffee starter activity for the day. I share the game with a few family and friends. I think one of the attractive things about the game is the ability to use your own personal self-imposed challenges and rules. A personal challenge I started out with was to use a different 3-vowel word each day. After a hundred games or so it became difficult to think up a new different one each day, so I started allowing myself to repeat some I had already used. Now I try to limit it to not repeating a starter word within 30 days of using it. So far I’ve played 170 games.

I can’t keep a winning streak going because I started out using my desktop computer and when I’m away from home for a day and use a tablet or phone it breaks the streak.

Yep! I don’t save my results unless I want to torture the wife. I think I used “piano” as my start word, and after the 2nd word there were about 6 possibilities left and only 4 tries – got lucky on the last one.
