Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

My son sent me the link today. I tried it.

It was ugly.

Oh that’s kind of fun! I got my first one in 6. Beginners luck I’m sure!

I started at 17 tries and have gotten it down to 13.

My son got it the first time in something ridiculous like 3, then he had to give up on his next few tries because it just got ridiculous.

I haven't figured out if there's much skill to it beyond having a decent vocabulary, and sometimes that doesn't even do it.

Does that mean that I won't keep trying?

It does not. Smiler

Second game I did it in 7. I feel like it’s easier than Wordle in some ways, but I can’t put my finger on why.

ETA: I’m getting worse. 8 guesses on my third play.
