  1. Nice solve.The original answer list was wonderfully inconsistent. While all regular plurals of nouns were categorically excluded, some regular past tenses of verbs and comparatives of adjectives were included. I checked CRIED now and surpringly, it is included. I wasn't sure if it's included because it's a common word (and this game is no longer restricted to the old A-list) but it was my third guess too. A total of five guesses in almost a minute for me.

  2. In 6, Aisle, Merit, Infer, Fried (had to think of something too, to place) Grief, Brief

  3. Yea it took me a while to think of Brief/Grief as well, wasnt thinking of F at the end since I am more used to seeing F as the first letter. Luckily I had guessed G earlier so by my 6th guess Brief was the only option left thankfully, my solve was definitely NOT Brief at all.

  4. Well done, Scott. Another solve in 3 for me today: FIGHT – CLIFF – BRIEF. Was BRIEFly puzzled by the "F" and the "I" both showing up as yellow on the word FIGHT – and it took me a moment to see any remaining options. Eventually settled on CLIFF as a second guess – and then found BRIEF quite quickly from there.

  5. Start with WIRED MOUSE for no particular reason.

  6. My solve was very similar: OCTAL, SIREN, FRIED, GRIEF, BRIEF.

  7. I got really lucky starting with BREAD

  8. WORDY
    FREAK
    GRIEF
    BRIEF

    Glad I wasn’t the only one who fell into the Grief Brief trap! I hate 50/50s like that because I always chose the wrong one lol! Good solve today!

  9. Got it in 4, like you I guessed grief before brief though.

  10. Why can't it be past tense. Threw is past tense right? And Fried can be an adjective right?

  11. You all beat me to the brief quips. You did ok. 🎉

  12. Wordle 936 5/6*

    ⬛⬛⬛⬛🟨 STALE
    ⬛🟨⬛🟩⬛ MITEY
    🟨🟩🟩🟩⬛ FRIED
    ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 GRIEF
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 BRIEF

    We had the same way of thinking.

  13. My solve was exactly the same as yours. ORATE, SLING, PRIED, BRIER, BRIEF. I think 5 is my new norm. Oh well, can't complain. I got it. 🤟

  14. How about you start with Coach tomorrow in honor of Nick Saban, Pete Carroll and bill belicheck.

  15. Nice job! Got it in 3 today…. ORATE GREED BRIEF

  16. I got a bit lucky today. I guessed Fried on my third guess which gave me the F.

  17. I also did it in 5. So a long rather than brief game for me too. Swamp, built, boing, bride, brief.

  18. Today I was thinking about French fries, and I accidentally started with FRIED. Either way…

    🟨⬜⬜⬜🟨 ROUTE

    ⬜⬜⬜🟨⬜ SNAIL

    🟨🟨🟨🟩🟨 FIBER

    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 BRIEF

    After 2 guesses, I thought of 9 likely answers:

    FIERY, WIPER, PIPER, DIVER, GIVER, FIBER, WEIRD, HIKER, and BIKER (in that order)

    I overlooked even more possibilities (11) than I considered:

    BRIEF, CIDER, CRIER, DICER, DRIER, FIXER, GRIEF, HIDER, MIXER, VIPER, and WIDER (in alphabetical order)

    My 3rd guess (FIBER) was very lucky, as it produced an easy 5-letter unscramble.

    Current Streak = 716

  22. I got it in four:

    MONEY, STAIR, GULCH and then BRIEF…

    That’s my usual three word fifteen letter start.
