Cn be fun in an addictive sort of way.





Got it in three tries the last five days, to include today.

My wife has been at it for a while.
Got today's in 3 guesses.

Hardest part is choosing the first word to use.

I like to mix up the first word.

Rents
Leans
Slant

Etc

Something which uses the most used letters.

BTW - letters can be used more than once, like "SWIMS" or "SASSY" That can mess you up. Wink

Word games have always been fun for me. I enjoy crosswords and many other apps and games. I've only played Worlde about 4 times, but I'll keep doing it for awhile. My daughter and I are having a competition to see who can get it in less guesses.

I like it! I've been playing about a week. There's an online game and an app, so you can do it twice a day if your want. I got it in 3 today, but it was a total lucky guess.

My start word is aegis. I've seen there are better ones, but I thought of that one myself so I stick with it. Adieu is supposed to be the "best", you get most of the vowels that way.




"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

I was struggling with a first word that covered most of the high use letters.

Had a Wheel of Fortune flashback to the end round where they give you R S T L N E & went with that as a base.

It's really a game of clue. The complexity is having to come up with actual words instead of just a random string of letters.

The strategy would be to use words that do not share the same letters with each other for the first two or three words.

After you find the right letters in the previous steps, then it's a matter of word scramble and fill in the blanks.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Got today's on the second try.

Don't see that happening again, but I added the link to my "check it every morning" folder.

I've bookmarked the link. I used "ready" as the first word today, but I think I'll use "audio" the next time. Maybe "whelp" for #2.

I messed up the first day as I didn’t really get what I was doing. Did better today. My mistake was putting my green letters in the correct place as I found them. Instead I use other words with letters I hadn’t tried. This way I’m ruling out more letters with each turn and have the answer by the last turn.




These go to eleven.

Got it in three today. Lucky guess on #2 gave me four of them and there was only one other option.
