I've heard about this game and that's about the extent of my involvement with it.

It's fun, like crack, but without the life-destroying addiction.

Re: Do you Wordle?

I was resistant, because many were posting it on Facebook, but it is a fairly addictive puzzle.

I don't see your results well, here. Not sure how mine will appear:

I've been doing this and lewdlegame.com it's a fun way to kill a minute a day.

Lewdle just has too restricted a dictionary.

Re: Do you Wordle?

andicus, Results aren't supposed to show the actual words, if that's what you mean. I see both of our blank/yellow/green boxes, though it looks like you use Wordle dark mode

I see these all over my Twitter feed and have zero idea what it is (I assume some sort of a word puzzle?).

Re: Do you Wordle?

I came across it on Twitter, but had no idea what the game was about.
Saw this thread and decided to check it out.

Won a wordle on my first game played. It was a little harder than I thought it would be.
I wont play anymore - want to go out a winner.

Re: Do you Wordle?

I resisted for several days, but now I’m hooked. Fun, and I like the fact that it’s only once a day, keeps the addiction at a low cost.

I play it safe and just rule out letters the first couple picks, so to easily get it each day. Should probably start trying to guess it earlier.

It's like the old game Mastermind but with words.
