Wordle - Simple daily puzzle game

This feels like it would be right up Beex’s street.

It’s a one a day puzzle where you have to guess the five letter word in six tries or less, very similar to the Mastermind board game from the 70s.

If you get the right letter in the right place, it shows green. Right letter in the wrong place and it shows red.
Got today in 4 tries.
It's nice. But - red? Am I colour blind?
I’ve been playing this the past few days, and I’m pretty good at it I think. It’s green and yellow for me also.

It was early. Wasn’t fully awake.
Ooh yeah, love Wordle. I'd already done today's on my phone, so I'm just testing if the handy emoji results service works on Beex

Edit: It does not :(

Wordle 198 3/6

This also seems to be the mechanic of Lingo on ITV, which we tried an episode of.
I'm on an 8 day streak!
I noticed there is a 'hard mode', and I don't think I'll be trying that yet as I still like to use a turn or two to eliminate a bunch of letters quickly.

I also noticed that the Google Play store has a couple of games called Wordle, none of which are the one we are talking about here.

There's a high contrast mode too, for anyone that may bot be able to tell what colour the dress Kovacs trainers are.
And now there’s a four letter version.

Looks like this one is buggy. I had a green O and a yellow O and I tried all the positions for the second O but none were correct, so that makes me think it isn't 'resetting' when you get the letter right.

Could it have been a double letter?

It looks like if you try a double letter, but it's only in there once it will show you both a green and a yellow.
Two double letters, when I tried it (and failed)!

I was wondering today, how it would handle words with two of the same letter (I'd assumed the simple way would be just to avoid them).
It should have a time limit or something, otherwise it just feels like "how long can you be arsed thinking about this?"
US spelling today. >:( Absolute Bullshit!
Are you saying you didn't get it? I had three letters and it took some puzzling. But I seem to be good at narrowing it right down to get it on the fifth go, but never, since the first day, earlier.
Of course I didn't get it, because I was looking for actual words, correctly spelled IN HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH!
Bloody colonials!
I've written a little script to solve these and it works fairly well. It's pretty dumb at the moment - it doesn't handle repeated letters too well and it just guesses at the next word to use rather than being smart about it, but still a fun project.
A nice little companion for Wordle from this week's Popbitch. WikiTrivia, a drag and drop timeline game.
I got a 2 today on this!

:this: (pleased - fluked one before, this was still lucky but involved a bit more thought).

Current thought: is it possible to solve Wordle using only the results people post to twitter? I reckon so, but it needs more investigation.
