    Wordle

    For the past ten days, I have been sleeping in a chair in a hospital room next to a sick kid. It being too dark to read, I have been spending an unusual amount of time on my phone (podcasts, Netflix, etc). I found a collection of all the Wordle games published to date, and have been working myself through them.

    Has anyone hit upon a particularly useful strategy?

    I don't know if it's particularly useful, but I try to enter a couple of words at the beginning that contain all the vowels, and work from there.

    I usually start with “ready” and “ought” to try including most of the vowels and some common consonants.

    For some reason, I seem to have the most trouble with words including “k”.

    Knife is a good one.

    Hope kid doing better.

    Once the answer was knoll, but if you use that, you are wasting a letter.

    Glad that Wordle is helping pass the time. I have not found any particular trick beyond getting the vowels as has been mentioned. I usually start with 'earth'. Atlantic magazine had an article explaining all the possibilities in words in 5 letters of the alphabet available in total, the expert approach and more. I found it a hilarious article and fun to read about such a fun frivolous activity. I confess I play it often. Seems as though each time I play I access a different portal so have no history of successes at any site.
    Hoping that all will be well soon.

    alone … has 3 vowels so IMO is a good word to start.

    Hope the kid will be ok!

    Jimmy Fallon started with arise, and that seems a good starter word.

    I am also addicted!

    Arose is also supposed to be a good one to start with as well.

    Hope the child will be okay!!

    Ten days! I hope the situation resolves soon!

    Kindles are backlit. I hear the new 6.8" one is the best yet.
