⬜🟩🟩🟨🟨   SALTO   not a real word, probably

Must be, though, because Wordle won't let you guess anything it doesn't consider a real word.


Not a bad day: tied the bot, guessed the purple.

Knowing the purple's tricks, I've started looking for words that all go with the same other word, especially if they're words that don't seem to have any other obvious meaning. Purple trips me up, though, when it's something like words that all spell numbers if you delete the first letter.

Another absurd purple category.  I knew one out of the four.  At least it's not America-centric!

Wordle 971 2/6

🟨⬜⬜⬜🟩SHIRT
🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩ASCOT

Ta-da! The "use whatever clues you get in the first guess in subsequent guesses" strategy really paid off today. That was the only word that came to mind. Apparently there were actually 21 possible words.

Wordlebot was seething with envy. You can tell because it gave me a low score for "skill" (67 vs. national average 76). I understand why I'd get a high luck score (90 vs. 70). But why would that indicate any less skill than average? I made the same guesses I would have made if I hadn't gotten 2/6.

I'd only heard of one of the purples, too. (Oasis, in my case. Is that even a pop band? I thought they were prog rock, but I might be thinking of a different band.)

Kind of a weird word day. Ascot? Most people would think that's a proper noun (I just went to the Sherlock Holmes's birthday dinner, and my date wore an ascot). Oasis not a member of a group of places with sand???
