    Thanks to Devang Thakkar, a fourth-year PhD student in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at Duke, the 200+ Wordle games released before I discovered its charms are readily accessible online. So now I’m making up for lost time.

    Thakkar recently spent a weekend building an archive of every Wordle game in existence. You can play them in any order. You can start at the beginning. You can start with today’s Wordle and work backward. You can sit down and play eight in a row. Just hypothetically, of course.

    One of the things I like about Wordle is that it prevents you from getting lost in it. Of course, somebody just had to circumvent that, and it turns out to be a Dukie.

    I spun my wheels on this one, it probably says something that I thought of three wrong second-letters before hitting the correct one:

    Yep, wheel spinning was kind of hard to avoid with the second letter.

    Correct

    Both.

    To folks stuck on one letter - if you wanted to guarantee victory, you could step away from your green tiles and do a word with as many variables as possible - pretty impossible to fail at that point.

    But it requires "sacrificing" a round that you might not need.

    It's a bit of a heat check for dorks.

    Not if you play "hard mode". FWIW, I, too, had a number of those single-letter-wrong misses. Fortunately, I got it in six, because before guess six there were still two possibilities remaining.

    Correct. Which is why "hard mode" is, in fact, harder. Despite earlier discussion here.

    I chose a very odd word for #2 and that gave it to me. Plus I acknowledged my usual blind spot on these, which helped.
