hello wordl 4-6-23 (contains spoilers)

I finished this one in six. It’s my first second in six in a row. The last time I got a six was Wednesday, April 5, which was 12 days since the prior finish in six.


For the Thursday, April 6 wordle puzzle, I was on the edge of my seat as I solved it in six guesses for the second day in a row. While a solve in six guesses is technically successful, it’s still a harrowing experience because it’s the maximum number of guesses allowed. My nerves were on edge as I guessed each word, hoping that it would bring me closer to the answer. The word was MAKER, and my first guess was GRIFT (Letter R correct but in the wrong place). My second guess was SAVOR (A and R in the right places). Third guess was CAPER (A, E, R in the right places). Fourth guess was WADER (no help). Fifth guess was BAKER (A, K, E, R in the right places). I was getting worried that I might fail, but then my sixth guess was correct with MAKER. I could have guessed LAKER or RAKER and failed. I breathed a sigh of relief as I realized that I had successfully solved the puzzle.

Last year, I had two solves in six guesses in April. This year, I already have two solves in six in the first week of April. It’s not the first time I got consecutive solves in six. In 2022, I solved three consecutive puzzles in six: January 17-19, and in March 2022, I solved three consecutive puzzles in six: March 3-5 followed by a solve in four and then consecutive solves in six for March 8-9, so five solves in six in six days. Then in August 2022, I had consecutive solves in six for August 11-12.

While it’s nerve-wracking to be on the edge of failure, the feeling of relief and satisfaction upon solving the puzzle is unparalleled. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow’s puzzle has in store for me.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
