  1. Another possibility after the 3rd guess would be POPPA, but you probably wouldn't want to guess that XD

  2. that one took me solid 20 minutes to guess. The double-double letter is nasty !

  3. Wordle 689 5/6

    🟨⬜⬜⬜⬜ AISLE
    ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ HAUNT
    ⬜🟩🟨⬜⬜ BOARD
    🟩🟩⬜⬜🟩 COMMA
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 COCOA

  4. I failed today. But hey, I learned a new word: Fovea 🙂 cool 🙂 nice solve there

  5. I'm curious how many people would have been stumped by fovea. I think it's not a common word but not obscure either.

  6. If it weren't for the fact that the Dutch wordle was cacao last weekend, I would've struggled a lot longer with this one. I think I failed the cacao wordle, but cocoa couldn't catch me this time!

  7. Okay… To be honest, I found this to be a cakewalk.

    Maybe this will explain why:
    (MAY 2023: SCION)


    Because I got it IN 3!
    I probably got it so fast because my start left me with ³³ guesses to follow up on, then COLOR left me with only ⁴;
    maybe this is just one of those lucky solves.

    I got stumped on guessing COCOA because I remember on my Grad day (6/18/22) that the answer was CACAO — a type of tree responsible for the production of honey — and I confused it for today's word; albeit, they're very similar.

    I can see why this word would be semi-difficult due to the repitition of letters but, in my opinion, it wasn't that bad.

    DAY 11 or 12 of asking Scott to do ARTSY & MUSIC (if you cant, thats fine too)

  8. I know your white dog's name is Banjo but what is your other dog's name?

  9. Wordle 689 4/6


  10. Plz start with sixth, sicks and brick for the tongue twister six sick bricks!

  11. Wordle 689 4/6

    ⬜🟩⬜⬜⬜ ROUTE

    ⬜⬜🟨⬜⬜ SNAIL

    ⬜🟩🟩⬜🟩 MOCHA

    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 COCOA

    Given the choice between MOCHA and COCOA on my third guess, I generally test for more new letters (3 to 1).

  12. i considered the possibility of "cocoa" in the second guess, but i wasn't brave enough to do it

    ⬛⬛🟨🟨⬛ TRACE

    🟩🟨⬛⬛⬛ CANDY

    🟩⬛🟨🟨⬛ CLOAK

    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 COCOA

  13. Nice solve. This one was a toughie. I needed over three minutes too.

  14. Wordle 689 6/6*

    ⬛⬛🟨⬛⬛- BEAST

    ⬛🟩⬛⬛🟩- AORTA

    ⬛🟩⬛⬛🟩- HONDA

    ⬛🟩⬛⬛🟩- FOVEA

    ⬛🟩⬛⬛🟩- POLKA (I was surprised it wasn't even THAT)

    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩- COCOA

  15. Day 20 start with
    Rainy stole and chump if you want to

  16. I did 


  17. Another classic case of Scott forgetting the C 😂

  18. I had pretty lucky starting word on this. I started with Coral then did Coast and 3rd guess was Cocoa

  19. Good solve! A 3 for me today, coast is one of my favourite words to use…. HOMER COAST COCOA

  20. Wordle 689 4/6


  21. I think this took me ten minutes, hard word very hard. Overall took 5. Claim, caste, cobra, conga, cocoa.

  22. Dang, I was really thinking it was gonna be BOFFA on that 4th guess

  23. Day 10: I have two three word starts that I came up with. 1) SLATE PROUD FINCH 2) SLATE ROUND CHIMP. They start with SLATE because I only use them when I need to, not on every solve. I suggest starting with the one you want to.

  24. Ironic how starting with Red Lorry Yellow Lorry led to a colorblindness reference!

  25. A tongue twister I love is “Irish wrist watch” so maybe start with WRIST and WATCH?

  26. How about a cup of COCOA?

  27. I really liked the FOVEA guess! Good solve in general, too 🙂

  28. Lol..I also guessed a body part I knew it wouldnt be! 😂 Helped me find it in 4 though

  29. I had a really hard time coming up with COCOA today. I got it in 6 🙁
    COPHA (I could barely come up with anything that was a word)

  30. My solve was: STARE MANIA DOULA COCOA. I could not think of anything so I used doula. Cocoa did not enter my mind right away.

  31. Well done, Scott!
    ⬜⬜🟨🟨⬜ TRACE
    🟩🟨🟩⬜🟨 CACAO
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 COCOA

  32. How about this, whatever acceptable 5 letters word you say, you put in.

  33. Thank you for doing my suggestion. I find red leather yellow leather to be easier but still tricky. I sometimes have to think about L's and R's when I speak sometimes, the letters I used to struggle the most with as a child, so if you know any other tongue twisters with L and R's I would struggle with those.
