    Yeah stress is 6 my b. Yellow and green are going to pretty much give you the answer regardless.

    We’re also talking about the least common scenario that could arise so this is really irrelevant to actual scenarios

    I did some quick research and if you know one is a double, and for each letter you know what position it should be in OR what position it cannot be in, it should not be unreasonable to figure out which of these possible words it is:
    trees
    terse
    teres
    stere
    steer
    reset
    reest
    ester

    I see your point but you could just as easily get to 'fight' on your second or third word and have the last 4 be green and still have about 12 words it could be and lose. I'm talking about a system for guessing that positions you with the most information by guess 6 as is possible.

    This game is so fun.

    I’m 3 of 4 done on 3rd try…the other one I didn’t finish and had 2 in the correct spot on 2nd try and didn’t get 1 letter correct after that. Including not guessing a single letter correctly anyplace on the board.

    I was slightly drunk so I used 2 letters twice, but overall a person’s chances of getting it on first try were probably as good as the lol that was that try.
    (I follow and know one guy that did get it on first try. He tweeted that he about fell off his thrown, it was ‘drink’ and he is a local beer dude so it made sense)

    Okay - playing around with citrodong ’s strategy a bit today. I can’t mess with five words (or even think of five words with 25 different letters) and four seems to be a step too far but three words with 15 different (and most popular) letters sets you up so nicely it almost takes all the fun out of the game.

    edit - it only lets me drop 6 photos at a time?

    So, in the end, I settled on CREAM, FLINT, and SOUPY. The P kept coming up enough that I needed to include it.

    If you’re trying to make 5 5 letter words without repeating a letter you’d have to use a vowel just once per word (plus a Y).

    Doubt you could get to 5. You could probably get to 5 if you allowed letters twice and didn’t try to find J, Q, X, and Z words.
