For anyone who hasn’t yet tried it, Wordle is a great word game a bit like the Mastermind board game but with letters.
The aim is to guess a five letter word each day in as few goes as you can - 6 is the limit.

Shall not do it again though.
Would waste an awful lot of my time, where I to allow myself to get into this.

This sounds like a modern twist on Lizzies Anagrams which she posts on Hobbies/Books.

My vicar has been singing it's praises - apparently the man who invented it has given for free.

Yes, Beryl, the inventor is Josh Wardle so the game’s name is a play on his own.

Wordle Is a Love Story - NY Times:
The word game has gone from dozens of players to hundreds of thousands in a few months. It was created by a software engineer in Brooklyn for his partner.
Linma, I haven’t watched Lingo (ITV, 3pm), I might give it a go: ITV Hub
Ena M, so far I just take a few minutes to attempt the new word each day and enjoy it, but I can see why you might decide not to play as well.

Well, he ain't giving it away for free any longer.
On today's news, he has sold it to NYT for an undisclosed seven figure sum.
NYT will not charge users for now. This may change.

Jo Anne, my wife and I attempt this each day and have a 100% record so far. People complained of yesterday's word CAULK... but any builder, decorator or DIYer will be very familiar with the word.

I got a caulk to mend a leak in the greenhouse,but I haven't mastered it yet.

The New York Times has now taken over Wordle, and as expected they have ruined it. They now don't allow what they consider to be offensive words. 2 examples are slave and wench. There are many more banned too. On top of that people are complaining that the site has secret ad tracking. Many people have now quit the site.

The NYT's Wordle pedantic banning of offensive words now includes 'fiver'...
Words fail me!
