So I heard about this word game on SiriusXM this morning. Every day it is a new game and you can only play once a day. It is very simple, just guess the 5 letter word. Each guess gives you hints as to whether a letter is in the word and if it is in the correct place.

I got today in 3 guesses.

Give it a try and post your results

Got it in the fourth try! Fourth row was the correct word. The other day I read a couple of articles in The Washington Post about this game and tried it just for fun. So today I approached it with a bit of strategy based on my earlier experience. It's kind of fun and does make one think.

Three guesses for me today, too. I’ve been playing for just over a week. Had to use my 6th guess one time. That was nerve wracking. It is the first thing I do in the morning. So far, a good start to each day.

My first guess is usually one of a few words that contains a lot of common letters.

Yeah, found out today that you can't use the Wheel of Fortune Bonus Round letters RSTLNE. It has to be a real word.

So for now, I am probably just going to find a word I like or just use the previous day's word as a starting point.

As you can see, I was at 4 by the second guess. But when that last letter came up wrong, it threw me.

Got it on the fifth guess.

Hm.

Fascinating.

This could be incredibly tempting. Not to mention downright addictive.

And - I will just put this out, for, it crossed my mind as I studied this topic - my mother would have loved it.

Before dementia took her mind and memory, she was an absolute demon at crosswords and all word games, and adored them and excelled at them.

Anyone else getting strong Star Trek TNG "The Game" vibes? 😅
