The Other Side of WORDLE

It happened again! It doesn’t happen often, but today was not the first. What am I talking about? Thanks for asking (ha-ha). I’m talking about that highly-popular game craze that is played by an estimated 300,000 people daily, WORDLE. More specifically, I’m talking about my having guessed the right word today on my first try!

How is that even possible? Luck! There is no other logical answer (other than cheating, but if one stooped to that level, then why bother playing?) No, there was no special skill; like flipping a coin, it was all luck. My only strategy, if it can even be called that, is to start with one of a few regular words that I use day after day. Today’s first guess just happened to be one of those words.

Well there you have it. Now to see how long I can carry on this streak before dipping below the 100% mark. Can I make it to 100 games? We’ll have to wait and see. 😊 

Postscript …

I made it! After my first 100 consecutive days playing WORDLE, I successfully maintained my 100% streak, only once going down to that last chance sixth guess. Woo-Hoo!

Since discovering WORDLE, my son also introduced me to another similar word game called QUORDLE. The only significant difference between the two is that in the latter the player has to solve four words within nine guesses. If you like WORDLE and want to try something a little more challenging, maybe QUORDLE is for you.
