I finished this one in three. It’s my first finish in three in two days. The last time I got a three was Monday, March 27.
If you’re a fan of word games, then you’ve probably heard of Wordle. The game has taken the internet by storm, and it’s easy to see why. The rules are simple: guess a five-letter word in as few attempts as possible, and each guess will be marked with clues indicating how many letters are correct and in the right position, and how many letters are correct but in the wrong position.
In my latest game of Wordle, the word was “TYING,” and I managed to solve it in just three guesses! My first guess was “GRIFT,” but unfortunately, only one letter (“I”) was in the correct position. Undeterred, I tried “THIGH” as my second guess, which had two correct letters (“T” and “I”) in the right position and one correct letter in the wrong position (“G”). For my third and final guess, I used what I knew and tried again. And just like that, “TYING” was the word!
This latest victory marks my sixth finish in three guesses for the month of March alone and my 20th finish in three guesses for the year so far. It’s a remarkable improvement from last year, where by this time, I had only solved 13 puzzles in three guesses, though I started in mid-January of 2022, so it’s not a perfect YOY comparison.
What I love most about Wordle is the challenge of deducing a five-letter word with limited information. With each guess, you eliminate certain possibilities and get closer to the correct answer. It’s a game that tests your vocabulary, logic, and critical thinking skills, and it’s incredibly satisfying when you finally solve the puzzle. So if you haven’t tried Wordle yet, give it a go – who knows, you might be the next to solve it in just three guesses!
