Wordle! It's the new craze

I just showed my Dad this and he's all fed up because he invented the same game in the 80's for the Spectrum.

I knew he'd done a word game back then as a home coding project, but had forgotten what the gameplay was. He called it Word Mastermind, and it was 4-letter words but otherwise identical. He could be supplementing his retirement income with clicks right now!

Quote from: Cuellar on January 14, 2022, 02:43:40 PMWhy in the name of christ if you got a yellow would you not then try that same yellow in a different place, in the hopes of getting it green?

I tried the different strategy today of not sticking with your greens and yellows and I failed for the first time.

I think I'd really stress about the not using established yellows/greens strategy. I like following the clues, extrapolating.

Quote from: pigamus on January 14, 2022, 02:47:06 PMBecause that's information you already have, and a completely different set of letters gives you more information
Which I can't help but feel is less useful than knowing where the right letters go, given how much having two or three greens really restricts the number of words the answer could be, and the gamble you're taking by picking five more random letters from the many left in the alphabet even in the fourth round.

I usually get this in four or five guesses and I'm a right thick cunt

I think that might be the main attraction of it; it makes you feel quite clever even though it's kind of engineered to be hard to fail at if you have an average vocabulary and a bit of patience.

Yes it's completely stupid.

Not sure I'd have gotten it sooner by repeating the letter I got in the second line in the third, but the solution was the only possible option I could think of after that.
