No, that word is not a valid Wordle word.

Here's a link to the list of words:

https://gist.github.com/cfreshman/a03ef2cba789d8cf00c08f767e0fad7b

And from that list, "AGORA" was removed from the list due to its obscurity, along with future solutions "PUPAL" and the British-spelled "FIBRE." The NYT has also removed future answers "SLAVE," "LYNCH," and "WENCH" under its "insensitive or offensive" rule.

HOARY was accepted as a word. No idea why you would say it is not a valid word?

I've been doing NYTimes Spelling bee. It did not take apical! Nor cecal! These are words I have used for decades... Today purpura. The most egregious one was ling. I'm not even a fisherman and I know what a ling is.

It's an acceptable GUESS. It's not a valid ANSWER.

See my prior post which gives a link to a list of all of the valid words that can be considered valid answers.

Here's a link to all of the valid GUESSES

https://gist.github.com/cfreshman/cdcdf777450c5b5301e439061d29694c

and yes, HOARY is listed in this list. But since I knew it couldn't be a valid answer, my game just had two valid answers left... and I chose poorly.

Not to change the subject, but there is a very simple math game available: Nerdle

nerdlegame 48 3/6

⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛🟪⬛🟪
⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩⬛🟩⬛
🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩

"How to play
Guess the NERDLE in 6 tries. After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the solution.

Rules
Each guess is a calculation.
You can use 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 + - * / or =.
It must contain one ď=Ē.
It must only have a number to the right of the ď=Ē, not another calculation.
Standard order of operations applies, so calculate * and / before + and -
If the answer we're looking for is 10+20=30, then we will accept 20+10=30 too (unless you turn off 'commutative answers' in settings)."

Iíve only done Wordle 4 times now. Today one of my vowels was in yellow so I knew it was in the word but in the wrong place. The word had that vowel in it twice so after I guessed the correct position I didnít think that vowel was in the word a second time. It really threw me off.

4 turns today. Four greens on my second turn, and then it was a 50/50 situation (unless there are words I don't know about) and, much like yesterday, guessed wrong.



It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Like yesterday, I received nothing but solid green clues. Like yesterday, after my initial guess there were only two words left.

UNLIKE yesterday, this time I chose correctly.



Only SHEET and SWEET were possible after the first guess.




After three games, I definitely prefer MasterMind. Instead of being told that the S and the E the T were correct, it's just more fun for me to be told that three letters are correct... and for me to have to determine which three letters those are.

There is a geography version called Worldle.
https://worldle.teuteuf.fr/
It shows you the outline of a country and after each guess it tells you how far off you are in km (or miles if you prefer). It also shows you which direction you need to go for your next guess.
Iím not very strong in geography but Iíve done okay. Yesterday was the tiny island nation of Nauru. I never had a chance.
