How do you get the colored boxes without the letters?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Didn’t realize it was a thing to finish earlier than 6/6 when I clicked your link so I played it like Mastermind (elimination rather than inclusion).. I should do better tomorrow.

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

Wordle 201 4/6

Obviously in the beginning you want to guess as many distinct letters as possible. Question is whether it's better to pack all the vowels in, or consonants. I'm thinking maybe the former. Like you could do alien and tours, thus packing in basically the top 10 most frequent letters right away.

I started out looking for vowels. Then a random word to get some consonants

Does it check if an entry is a valid word?
