six tries at getting the word right..... just one word a day...if the letter turns grey it is not in the word..... etc.

My son in Canada sent me a link just after Christmas, which I didn't get. I'd forgotten about it until this thread. Just managed it in the 6 moves. Will bookmark the site smile

Aw thanks lemsip , I love a word game.
Got today’s word in 3 goes (beginner’s luck likely!)

I think I've downloaded the wrong Wordle game on my phone, as all I've got is a grid where you have to link letters to form words .

Another search needed, I think.

I do like a word game too. I play scrabble, but jyst against the computer.
I got the word in 4 tries.
Thank you lemsip.

I have been doing this for just over a week. Got today’s in two attempts. Beginners luck,maybe, as I couldn’t get yesterday’s at all. Do they publish the previous days answers anywhere?

It looks like this HurdyGurdy but initially all tiles will be blank and the “keyboard” will be below. You try typing 5 letters and see if any are in the word (the tiles will change colour).
Does what you found resemble this?

Good once you get going but not easy to choose a starting word.
Took me a while to realise you could use the same letter twice.

Took me 5, better luck next time, thanks for this.

Cherrytree59 Tue 11-Jan-22 13:59:20

Got in 3
Said impressive.
but I was 'thinking' at time

Article about it in The Guardian today

Only one word a day?! Oh, no, I could do this all day long grin. Back to Classic Words…..

Thank you TillyTrotter. No, the one I downloaded was nothing like that. I've deleted it now, as it's obviously not the right one, and will use the one you showed. smile

Oh dear. I don't usually like word games, but tried it today and got it in 2 ("Magnificent" it says. Feel free to throw flowers, thank you.) I think I may become addicted...

Of course, tomorrow I probably won't get a single letter.

Mollygo Tue 11-Jan-22 14:35:51

Took me three-beginners luck. Now I need one!

Tizliz Tue 11-Jan-22 14:43:46

Never played this type of game before but think I like this, thank you

Blossoming Tue 11-Jan-22 14:49:49

6 goes, never tried it before, it’s kind of like hangman.

FannyCornforth Tue 11-Jan-22 14:54:52

I did it in three today.
Personal best! smile
First two games: 5
Next two games: 4

I think that to do it in 2 would just be down to luck, I can’t see it happening to me tbh

Which word did you start with?

crazyH Tue 11-Jan-22 15:01:52

The frustrating this is - just one word a day (and I didn’t even get that😂)

Alygran Tue 11-Jan-22 15:14:31

I got it in 2 today. Started with daisy. That’s the second time I got it in 2 usually 4 or 5 tries needed since I started doing it last week.
