Took me 6 tries. 
Are we all doing the same word on the NYT version ?

My second 'turns' was how I got it in three today---just lucky.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/wordle-cheating-time-high-study-193649315.html

Since The New York Times bought Wordle in late January, some players have become convinced the viral word game has become more difficult than ever before. While that claim remains unproven, a new study shows that cheating while playing Wordle has become more prevalent since the Times’ takeover.

WordFinderX, a word games reference tool, conducted a study using Google Trends data to show just how many people are searching for the answer to the day’s Wordle.

According to the study, which looked at data through Feb. 20, Google searches for “today’s Wordle” increased by 196% since The New York Times bought the free game.

Search interest for the day’s Wordle had the largest one week increase from February 6 to 13, when interest jumped from nearly 70 on Google’s popularity scale to 100.

The New York Times bought Wordle on Jan. 31, and the Wordle domain officially redirected to a Times website on Feb. 10.

The two most difficult words — and most popular days for cheating — for players appear to be Feb. 15’s “AROMA,” and Feb. 19’s “SWILL.”

Not only did the study analyze the searches over the past three months, but they were able to pinpoint which state these “cheaters” live from.

The “biggest cheaters,” according to WordFinderX, can be found in the northeast.

New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, as well as Washington D.C., Massachusetts and Maine all had the highest number of “todays Wordle” searches in that time period.

When McClatchy News ran its own search of Google Trends data, we found the least likely offenders were from Alaska, followed by Mississippi, New Mexico and Kentucky.

These cheaters also commonly play in the morning. The study says the searches were most often done between 7 and 8 a.m.

The graph provided by the study does indicate that cheating has become more prevalent since the New York Times takeover, but it also may be due to the game’s rising popularity — since more people playing means more opportunities to cheat. Regardless, it does appear that cheating at the simple word game has increased, especially since the start of February.

Open wordle in incognito tab---get answer---open in normal browser and answer in how many guesses you want.  Then google can't track your cheating...not that I ever thought about it. :unsure:

I helped the lady get it. She was on the last chance and didn't want to be wrong. When I said "vivid" she said. THAT MUST BE IT!

Ok, so gold means you got a correct letter and green means a correct letter and the right spot?  I got 2 gold on my first word, but thought that meant correct spot too.  I failed.

You messed me up, I used a word that uses all uncommon letters as my first guess because I read your post before trying. That is what I get for cheating a little bit. :lol:

Yikes.  I can't believe how hard I struggles on today's word.

Ditto...  In fact I didn't get it, it just didn't click...

Maybe I should tweet about it how hard it was and complain...

Yesterday's was the first one I ever did. Got a little better today. 

I was going to ask a question but didn't want to spoil it for anybody else. Although, you guys all know the rules already. So I just took a shot and got it right.

way better than me., I already got 2 fails in only 20 games. Shake(missed getting the K) and Rupee. I stupidly wasted a guess with Rupee, and finished with puree, knowing it had to be one of the two words.

There's also a math version.

https://www.mathler.com/

Took me 4 tries to get 11. On the third step I had the exact set up, but the wrong numbers of two possibilities. It was a coin flip. Almost had it in 3.

I've found mathler to be easier than wordle.  There are fewer possibilities with finding the right equation.

Yeah, at least for that one at least. With wordles you don't get a clue. Unless I missed it somewhere. Only tried each once.
