Of course, my previous post assumes you can play invalid words. Having never played before today, I don't know if that is possible. (Most likely it is not.) The general idea though, is still correct, and it does work for MasterMind, since there's no rule about submitting a guess that is not possible.

From my experience, Wordle will not provide feedback on invalid words.

3/7/22 4 try’s today but it took me 10-15 minutes. This was my hardest yet.

After my initial guess for today's puzzle (3/7/2022), there were only two words left... and yet I picked the wrong one.

Four turns today.

fyi... Note that CHOTA your third guess, could not possibly have been valid. (There were no As in the word, as shown from the first clue.)

I know. I couldn't think of any valid guesses, so went with something that was close to being valid.

I think I was in the same boat, unless there are qualifying words I don't know about.

Five turns today.

My average turns over 7 games is 32/7 = 4.57.

Incorrect. I tried the correct first 4 letters with a Y as the last letter. That was a third possibility after you got letters 2,3, and 4 correct.

What was the third possibility?

According to a website that listed the entire word list that the site uses, only...


...board and hoard were valid after my first guess, with that feedback I was given.

Hoary is definitely a word. No idea if Wordle uses is.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
