    Just seems like Force or Forge would be more likely to come to one’s mind and be more sound strategy than guessing the same letter in two spots. Hence wes tegg is not sane. It’s simple science. Sorry tegg

    Banal broke my brain. It didn’t occur to me that a letter could be used twice until then.

    Im switching up my first word strategy. I realized it would be better to look at a letter frequency chart just for 5 letter words rather than the entire dictionary. I searched online and a nerd already created one:

    upload_2022-1-9_20-58-49.png
    this assumes that wordle doesn’t use plural 4 letter words for answers which it didn’t look like they do scanning previous answers. Unfortunately the top 5 letters in the chart don’t form any English word, but if you skip “i” and use “s” then you get these three:

    so I think I’ll use soare.

    Use stare. It’s easier to guess the correct vowel, especially after a and e are determined.

    Oddly enough this is my first time doing this puzzle and stare was my first word, so go me.

    I notice when you guys get letters in the right position you try to keep them there. Wouldn't it be more efficient to use a completely different set of letters to narrow down possibilities?

    So I went stare, ghoul, bored, then gorge

    yes but there is a hard mode in settings that requires you to use the letters you’ve gotten in subsequent guesses.

    There are only 5 possibilities that I can think of here; FORCE, FORGE, FORME, OORIE, and GORGE.

    FORGE might have been the safer guess because you are guaranteed to get the next guess right if it's wrong, but GORGE seems like a word wordle would use and FORGE seems way too easy.

    Just read about hard mode. It would have indeed made it harder than my strategy to knock out as many letters as possible with the third guess. Which turned out rather well today.
