Wordle game


It’s a fun game, a cross between the old board game Mastermind and Hangman. You have to guess a word in 6 tries, you get feedback on which letters are correct and whether they are in the right position. Every day you get a new set of words to guess.

It’s trivially easy if you have a dictionary file and grep (with tool assistance I can guess every word in 4 tries or less, so far), but quite fiendish without it… :slight_smile:

That’s actually pretty fun.

For 5 letter words, a good strategy is to try: RISEN, OCTAL, HUMPY.

Lightweight :wink:


The grep dictionary method cheat shines on long words:


But it slightly struggles on 4 letter words.

the more letters the word, the easier it becomes.
