Based on this thread, I decided to download Wordle and play it.

I can't make this up: I solved it in 2 words. My first time ever.

I started with TRIES because it had two vowels and common letters.

T and R were green, and S was yellow! Very lucky.

the S clearly needed to be the 4th letter, so all I could think of was:

TRASH.

And that was the solution.

Stupid question -- On any given day does everyone get the same word or a random one?

Wordle is not an app, it's a website. If you're playing an app, you're playing a knockoff and will be playing a different word than the rest of us.

Everyone who plays on the NYT website should get the same word, although there have been reports of some people inexplicably getting a different word from others. Probably as a result of the original powerlanguage website now redirecting to the NYT website.

Havenít played it yet but I read that trace is the best word to start with and crate is just slightly behind as 2nd best.

I love the game nerdle. It's basically wordle, but a math equation.

I have a streak of 10 days in a row getting it in 3 or less.

In answer to the poll question of when did "The Ukraine" become "Ukraine," it's 1991.

Here is a link to Nerdle. I just tried for the first time and surprisingly got it in two turns.
