Wordle 664 – 5/6
Wordle was not something I was interested in until about six month ago. As a writer working for one of English-speaking publishing’s most revered institutions (brag!)I was like I know a lot of words. I don’t need to gamify them. Once, I went to South Africa on a reporting trip, and after I introduced myself as an employee of The New York Times, my new friend remarked, “Ah, yes, the Wordle people,” as if we don’t have 132 Pulitzer Prizes?
That all changed when I realized that Wordle doesn’t have to be a game. It can become a competition with the right group text. The Wordle group chat I have has the same number of taunts and curses as there are green, black and yellow squares. (GUANO had a crazy chat day.) I don’t actually know these people — I was added on a whim after a conversation about other games — which makes it all the more fun. Most of the members don’t even have names in my phone. All I know, each time I open up the chat, is that somebody with a New Jersey area code got the day’s word in three tries, or that a certain musician-record producer-disc jockey-filmmaker-music journalist-actor HATES when he needs four turns to solve, or that somebody is at Disneyland with their kids and we just talk about that for a while.
I start my day with the Wordle, because it’s the perfect wake-up: exercising your brain while your body is still warm and surrounded by pillows. Some people in the group chat check the other people’s letters before they play, searching for clues, which is a skill I only understand in theory. I don’t have any strategies or words to start with: I write what comes to my mind or let my fingertips decide. It’s never neat, but I rarely lose.
Four stars, because this was the first time in decades I’d thought to myself, “I before E, except after C,” and it was nice to bring some poetry into my day.
Today’s word is THIEF: a person who steals something, according to Webster’s New World Dictionary.
The word that is being used here is Uncertainty can make it difficult, but with a good strategy you can overcome this..
The word is composed of a letter pattern that has five or more possible answers. In order to get the answer in just six guesses you will need to be strategic with each one.
