Since there’s just a giant word list that it pulls from, it could just be coincidence

Hmm, maybe.

Ditto. Never occurred to me that context matters or I might have thought to go there sooner.

There’s a human editor that chooses the word now, so I doubt that it’s coincidence.

Oh is there? I know the original Wordle just stuck them in an array. If you went into the source code you could cheat and look at every word that could possibly be correct.

Yes, there’s an editor’s name at the bottom of the daily intro screen now—not sure how long it’s been there.

Flopped on the quordle. :-1: Again!

Phrazle in 3.

Conceptually, sure. If you want the best score, you’d change your word to give the least information for every guess (without putting yourself in a position where no words fit.) My best scores so far though have all come from picking a word with a multiple letters (the same thing that gets humans when guessing).

Hmmm. Thinking about it, I think it uses the letters in their known places. So, for example, if you could guide it toward “_unny”, you could make it go through all the possibilities. (Assuming it hadn’t eliminated all the letters already.)

tries that

OK, I got 7, which isn’t bad.

But I’ve tried that and it didn’t really do much? Unless I need a more obscure word than GILLS.

When you get one letter in your first two guesses, it’s going to be an interesting puzzle.

Obscurity does not help, AFAICT. It’s not guessing from common words, it’s guessing from a list with all words equally weighted.
