Wordle 283: The Answer Shall Leave Me Reeling

Wordle 283 continued the trilogy of results of the not optimal nor desired variety. What I mean by that is four or more. 

Adieu gave me nada. Goats also gave me a yellow S. It’s only now that I realize my mistake of using a gray letter. Oh well. It’s in the past!

I was concerned about the lack of vowels. Especially after Wordle 282’s Wordle of Nymph. To that end I went with Scary as my next choice. S and A both went green and I knew there was no Y.

At this point I pretty much assumed it was a one vowel word. There was no C. So what was the next common letter to appear between S and A? I thought out words like Skate and Scale, but knew they had gray letters. 

I didn’t like using double LL’s. However, I fell pretty confident that it was Shall and it turns out that I was correct.

Wordle 270: Catering To The N-Gram Crowd

Wordle 270. Wordle 270! Oh ho ho, Wordle 270. I see you. I wag my finger at thee. You started out the easily enough, but the you went full jerk mode.

Adieu proved a yellow A and a green E. With last weeks love of the letter W in mind, I entered Water. Everything went green except the W. Which remained gray. 

Well, not a big deal. Surely it’s Later! No.

Hater? I stupidly entered as if The Times would choose a fun word such as Hater. Even though I certainly was one by that point in time. 

I also realized I was in the midst of another n-gram. Which can be a lot of things. In this case, it was a series of letters that appear together. This could end up like Wordle 265 all over again. Luckily, I had wound up at this point much sooner than I had on my first Wordle X. 

I had too guesses left and if I thought the phonetically similar Gator one more time would scream. I scoured available options and saw that C. Then proceeded to feel slightly underwhelmed by the result.
