Damn, I hate when this happens.
You literally have to “roll the dice” to pick the right one,
and today I did not.

I found myself in a similar position. Here's how I got out of it:

I am in idiot.

It turned into a guessing game after three turns. Of course, the correct answer is one of the three I didn't pick.





I wonder if the NYT polls people with questions like "choose a five-letter word that ends in ..." and they go with the response chosen the least. To be honest, that is the kind thing I would do.

I was in a similar position. After my first two guesses, I determined the remaining possible words were...

...BATCH, CATCH, HATCH, MATCH, PATCH, or WATCH.

I've already proven I'm not a "lucky guesser." And I didn't want to not solve the puzzle at all, in the allotted six rows rows. (In fact,my goal is to always solve the puzzle in five rows or less.)

So my next guess was one to simply eliminate as many of the choices as possible. I chose the word CHAMP, which uses a C, an M, and a P. If CATCH, MATCH, or PATCH was the answer, I would have known this and solved the puzzle in four rows.

Alas, I chose poorly again. With my feedback, I eliminated those three possible answers... but that still left three remaining. (BATCH, HATCH, WATCH)

Rather than guess again, and possibly solve the puzzle in four rows, but also possibly not solve it until the sixth row, something which would not achieve my goal, I again chose a word (BELOW) to guarantee a solution in five rows.

As you can see, since the W received the hit and not the B, I knew the word was WATCH. (If the W also didn't receive any feedback, the answer would have to be HATCH.)

Mike, if you look at mine in my previous post ours are almost exactly the same! (P.S. I’ll start using the spoiler format on here rather than the Wordle share format)
