If you haven't been playing this new daily word game 'craze,' I highly recommend it. My family has been enjoying it every day since New Year's Day.

The creators of the game choose a random 5 letter word-of-the-day once every 24 hours. Your job is to figure out that word in 6 tries or less. If your guess word has a letter in a correct location of the actual word, it will be highlighted in green. If your word has letters that are correct but not in the right location, they are highlighted in yellow. Any incorrect letter is greyed out. It's a matter of logic and luck from that point on.

What I find most enjoyable is that the entire world gets the same word every day. And there is only one word per day, so you're not wasting your day playing this game. It takes about 5 mins to play each day.

I am not sure I am allowed to post a link, so just google 'Wordle.'

For those of you familiar with the game, here are my results for today:
Wordle 217 4/6

⬜⬜⬜⬜🟩
⬜⬜⬜🟩🟩
⬜🟩⬜🟩🟩
🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
 
Very fun! I like how it’s one and done.. not time wasting/addictive like you mentioned.

Got 4/6 as well today.
 
Cool, so I got today's word (on 4th row/attempt), enjoyed it and found you can press the "today's word" button that toggles it to random and you get another word... Really lucked out on that one and got it in 3 tries. Cool tip is the keyboard displays letters in gray if they are not part of the word, that helps make the guessing more efficient.

Thanks @brewmeist, great game!
 
What are you starter go to words? audio and noise are my favorites, like to maximize those vowels....
 
I’ve played a few times and got today’s using all 6 tries. I like the one a day puzzle. How do you get your score though? I like numbers.
 
Today was my 3rd day. I like it too. I've used tries as my first word but looks like it is time to change it up. Today I got 5/6.
 
I’ve settled into:
ORATE first, rules some frequent letters in or out, and if the word ends in E.

Then, depending on Line 1 results, I will try one of 3 words:
LUNGS, SLING, SLIMY
Helps with Y or S at word end, assesses U, I, L and N.
I am usually able to solve at Line 3 or 4, occasionally 2. I talk out loud a lot…
 
I did some archive puzzles today. Was circling the drain on this one but had a good neuron fire-up.

I used my usual “orate” to start, had the E. Tried two different words using rest of vowels and all different consonants. Used the only word I could think of with what was left. I’ll leave it for the day now.

Note for anyone new to Wordle, like me: The real game is played on the developer's Power Language web page. There is no app on either Apple or Android (except copycats).
