TREAT yourself to a quick watch of Mark trying to solve Wordle inside a minute yesterday … in Hard Mode


  1. Mark's no scrub when it comes to Wordle! Always a treat to see him play.

  2. Please try to start with audio , nymph , crest

  3. Mark’s opening word streak currently:


    Theme: The 5-letter words from “If—“, a poem by Rudyard Kipling

    The line is “and treat those two impostors just the same”, so I think THOSE will be next

  4. Got it in three forget my first two words but definitely not quickly I had a nomadic R and knew it was a U I had used the other vowels and with the consonants I had left it was all I could think of after ten minutes or so

  5. Almost nailed it in 2 but ended with an easy 3. Prise>Shrub>Scrub

  6. Wasn't curvy the answer a few months ago?

  7. TREAT-FLOUR-SYRUP-SHRUB-SCRUB. I still have nothing but 4’s, 5’s or worse with this poem. Let’s see if THOSE does any better today…

  8. I may have been the only one who opted for SCRUM before SCRUB. at least it was still a 6.

  9. I had it narrowed down to either scrub or scrum, but scrum didn't sound like a NYTimes word.

  10. Don't know why, but Scrum popped into my head before Scrub.
    Auger – Crush – Scrum – Scrub

  11. And my 5s continue to take a bigger lead over the 3s. I also tried SCRUM before SCRUB

  12. nice! i got this one in 3, took me an embarrassing amount of time to think of the last option, i almost had it in 2! STARE -> SHRUB -> SCRUB

  13. Love these shorts. Thanks, as always, Mark.

  14. I feel as though "Come on, scrub!" has some pretty powerful meme edit value.

  15. The C and U had me really puzzled for a while…

    Darned SCRUM, could have had a 3 🙂

    ⬛⬛🟩⬛⬛ EARNT
    🟨🟨🟩⬛⬛ CURRY
    🟩🟩🟩🟩⬛ SCRUM
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 SCRUB


    I don't think there were many options left after guess two. Y and U were the only vowels remaining. Still, I feel pretty lucky to have gotten it in three.

  17. We start every day with a TREAT from you, Mark. 😊

  18. fRont->guaRd->CRUSt->SCRUB, in 4!🎉

  19. I usually say this but wow what a tricky word todays is. Can’t wait to see how mark and everyone does with this one

  20. I put in SCRUM instead of SCRUB so which is annoying because I could have had it in 3

  21. Got it in 4: SHIRT, SONAR, SERVE, SCRUB — that's not bad, for me.

  22. “come on, scrub” is definitely something that got said a whole lot in the late 2000s
