THOSE who are about to play the same starting word … get ready!

  1. Those Wordles may be getting more difficult, but nothing's amiss with Mark's skills! 😎

  2. I'd have probably went for daisy on the third guess

  3. Mark’s opening word streak currently:

    TRUST DOUBT THEIR TIRED BEING ABOUT HATED DREAM THINK TREAT THOSE

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

    The next line is “If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken”, so TRUTH should be next. It also bears mentioning that YOUVE is not a Wordle word, so that won’t be the starting word in two days

  4. I got it in four. Took me several minutes to think of AMISS once I had the I and the first S.

  5. “That was quite difficult”. Does it in 3 within 40 seconds. 😅

  6. I figured there had to be a repeated letter, I just needed to find the right place.
    LUNGE – MARSH – SPASM – AMISS

  7. "That was quite difficult." Gets it in three in less than a minute…🤔

  8. Finally got it in 3. Been a while on my end. I did try AMISH on guess 3 and fortunately that is not in the word list
    ⬜🟨🟨⬜⬜TIMER
    🟨🟨⬜🟨⬜MAXIM
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩AMISS

  9. A lucky 2 – least then amiss.
    (I got a two as well today 🤗)

  10. I ran your options through a solver, and after THOSE and BRISK there was only 5 valid words left:

    AGISM, AMISS, DAISY, PAISA and SWISS

  11. STERN > PLUSH > BOSSY > AMASS > AMISS

  12. RAISE AMISS . Not had a two for a while.

  13. I took a wandering path, but I got there…

    ⬛🟨⬛⬛⬛ EARNT
    ⬛⬛🟨⬛⬛ POACH
    🟩🟨🟨⬛⬛ ASSAY
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 AMISS

  14. SPARE -> HASTY -> AMISS (I was a bit stumped for a while on my 3rd guess – I think the only other option was USUAL, which I didn't even think of until after. Apparently that was already used though!)

  15. ARISE then AMISS for me. Needed a little lie down afterwards.

  16. I had a similar problem coming up with a final letter after getting the IS. But it took me five minutes and six guesses! Thanks for the daily marvel, Mark, and hooray for a three!

  17. THOSE-CRISP-DAISY-AMISS. I still have yet to get a 3 (or fewer) with this poem. Unlike Mark, the Y ending occurred to me before the double S. Next up, we’ll see if TRUTH does any better!

  18. I'm impressed, that green i said a lot I think :O It took me 5, STARE -> GASSY -> SLASH -> AMASS -> AMISS

  19. I used to start with THOSE just for how many common consonant pairs it used up

  20. Lol, I had exactly the same solve path but it took me a solid minute to go from brisk to amiss.

  21. CHAOS -> LAPIS -> AMISS

    I had a similar hangup, but I needed to put something in front of an S. Turns out it was another S.

  22. Quite difficult, could have gone very differently. Luckily got it in 4.
    Auger – Avast – Abyss – Amiss

  23. TRASH -> AMISS

    The yellow A tipped me off because i felt like I couldn't put it anywhere other than first

  24. That was clever, thinking "what could it end with". That's the only way I got it as well.
    Well done, Mark, and hurray for the 3s!! 🙂

  25. I'm not using Mark's starting words but, like so many of the rest of you, I went via DAISY: SHIRT, POISE, DAISY, AMISS. I often take ALONE as a second guess, and WordleBot volunteered to me that if I'd done that on this one, then I would have eliminated every other possible word in its list and should have got it in 3. Oh well.

  26. Also in three, all green: ADIEU – AMITY – AMISS

  27. I almost got this in 3 yesterday, except I guessed "amass" instead of "amiss".

  28. I was also able to do in three all green
    ATONE
    AMPLY
    AMISS

  29. 2 for me, arise, amiss…20th two in 560 Wordles
