Hard mode doesn't allow that strategy - have to use previously guessed correct letters.

Didn't even know about that mode. Maybe it's for the best

Am I the only one who wasnít aware that the relationship between #1 and #4 could be a factor here? To me it just confuses things exponentially.

Wish they had an indication of whether the dayís word had this scenario or not, as the ambiguity either way complicates it.

IIRC I didnít get in on Wordle until after that situation

Or else now we know to be aware of it. I don't know if I would have gotten the answer any quicker tbh... since there is another word that's almost the same that I got in the second to last guess. I guess it would have been 50/50...

Happened to me a previous day, which makes me wish they could eliminate such words (where thereís another word thatís different with a single letter), but thatís likely not to be realistic given they have a new and common word every day.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I liked that Text Twist (obviously a completely different game) allowed you to proceed if you got only one of the six-letter-words from the six letters in question, but gave you more points for guessing every additional possible six-letter-word. Theres a specific dopamine hit in getting them all (especially if it happens quickly), a smaller version of the much harder/rarer accomplishment of getting every single word within the allotted time.
