My earlier two guesses were TRAIL and BRING. I struggled hard to think of anything else that could even fit the pattern!

I need to stop playing this while I'm also trying to watch television. For the third time I didn't shift yellow letters out of their incorrect spots, which sets me back at least one attempt, if not more.

Some of these latest wins have been pure guesswork!

Best one yet. Damn near had it in two moves. You should be able to guess my second entry.

…and, since I’m up, how about some Boba Fett? I timed this nicely.

This one is kicking everyone's butt. It's got an unusual letter that most wouldn't consider unless they just happened to type it on a whim and it was accepted.

I like all the comic book/Batman commentary, though...

"Oof", "Blarg", "Phew"...I see them in big green, yellow and orange letters/starbursts with 3-4 exclamation points.

There’s more to it than that.

Spoiler (click to toggle):
It’s also spelled wrong, for anyone who uses UK English. Thus never considered it till the end.

And right on cue…



This Josh guy either a) should’ve seen this coming and taken steps to protect (if not outright earn from) his creation or b) has to be completely okay with not.

Too late to cry/worry now…the sharks are in the water, feasting on your idea/work.

Business School 101: What not to do if you have a catchy, clever idea.

I’ll continue to play the web-based original, but this other stuff will probably hasten its demise/fading, I fear, and contribute to O.D./burnout/overexposure to where even the free original one pays a price.

That one developer, who took the name and overall look and is bragging on Twitter about what he’ll be pulling in from the $30/year fee…I’d sure hate for such a graceless twat to fall down some stairs or something. Be a thieving, unoriginal dick if you must; maybe just do so on the down-low so you're not a frontrunner in 2022’s Karmic Kornhole Championship. Those who take to social media to broadcast/crow about their shaky ethics, general shitheadery and endless shades of grey often wish they hadn't.

Yeah, there will always be slimy opportunists ready to grab and resell any good ideas. Honestly, I'm surprised there weren't paid/ad-filled clones being hawked sooner because a) it's an incredibly simple game (even I probably could have made a clone, and I'm shit with JavaScript), and b) there's already that free open-source infinitely-playable clone that Capella mentioned a couple pages back.

Fortunately I get the impression that Mr. Wardle never intended to make a business out of this game; he just made it for his partner and family and friends, and it happened to take off. He even explicitly stated in interviews that he didn't want to bloat it with social media hooks and ads and such. Genuinely good guy, from all appearances.

I did this before reading the semi-spoiler comments above, and I just got really lucky with that uncommon letter in my third guess (VAPOR).

Wordle 208 (4/6)

⬛️⬛️⬛️⬛️⬛️
⬛️⬛️⬛️⬛️

Y'all are gonna love 208.

In my own defence, I thought my semi-spoiler was vague enough that I could have been referring to an Americanism.

Got away with a less common French starter word today. Gonna try Italian tomorrow.

I used to play a game called Word Collect. Basically, a Boggle type game. But very prudish. Wouldn't recognize "rude" words at all even when they were perfectly legitimate words. So "spine" was acceptable but not "penis".

WTF… On my third and fourth guesses, I was simply trying to eliminate letters. Then I was just fucking around with the few letters I had remaining on the fifth, banging out nonsense letter sequences, I happened to hit enter, and that was the right answer?? Ugggghh. I don't think I would have ever legitimately guessed this.

Kind of! I have a bunch of extra privacy settings in my browser (see also arkenfox's user.js), and apparently it also hides my local time zone from some things like this game, presenting the default GMT/Β±0. Fortunately, it crosses midnight in GMT when it's my 19:00, and that means I get slightly early access.

Man, with all the comments above re: #208, I'm really looking forward to that one arriving. I'm going to start with the stupidest, most unlikely/oddball 5-letter-word I can think of (I actually have several in the running and I'll flip a coin when the time comes), and see what happens. When chet, chuck and Brad are all waving the warning flag, I can't help but be curious.

Gotta admit, I've been sitting here in quiet anticipation of everybody's reaction to the horror that is Wordle 208.

So far, have not been disappointed.
