On location – and forgetting to reset the microphone feed! Gah! Wordle in a minute though – with post-match commentary …


  1. I broke my streak here, streak of 50 (would have been streak of 300 I'd NYT had no messed up my streak at one point), a bit unfortunate but wd start anew

  2. I was struggling with this one and got it also in 5th try 🙂

  3. I got this one in two!
    I have no idea how I managed it

  4. I thought about repeating a letter and then it turned out I had to repeat an additional letter. Quite an evil word.

  5. Also got it in 5. Though was stuck between Magna and Magma as my 4th guess

  6. Mark’s opening word streak currently:


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

    The next line is “Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken”, so WATCH should be next

  7. It was tricky, but got it in 4 thanks to using some MAGIC in 3rd try

  8. After ENTRY and SPOIL with no results I went for and MA combination and knowing how devious NYT can be went for MADAM – which gave me the repeated MA – I next tried MAMBA but this was rejected leaving MAGMA

  9. 5 guesses for me.
    Board -> Askew -> Match -> Mafia -> Magma

  10. I thought they'd been extra evil and wasted a guess on MAMMA

  11. 5s have one taken the lead on my end :-/

  12. ENDOW -> SMART -> MAGMA 🎉

    happy to get this in 3

  13. FOOLS-TRADE-MANGY-MAGIC-MAGMA. I always try to match Mark’s starting word, but it’s rare to match the 2nd word! Next up, we’ll give WATCH a shot.

  14. Target this game is less than 4th row

  15. I had three options at guess five: Mamma, Gamma, and Magna. Guessed right, but either of the others would have gotten it in six because they were close.

  16. I appreciate the extra effort you expend to make these little videos, Mark. I managed to get my first three guesses all gray, and it took all six to come up with the word. Whew!

  17. "MAGMA" was the only valid word left after turn 4, but I just could not think of it. Finally gave up so I could see the answer…

    ⬛🟩⬛⬛⬛ EARNT
    ⬛🟩⬛⬛⬛ VAPID
    🟨🟩⬛⬛⬛ GASSY
    ⬛🟩⬛🟨⬛ LAUGH
    ⬛🟩🟩⬛⬛ WAGON
    ⬛🟩🟩⬛⬛ WAGON


    This took quite a while to uncover, even after getting lucky with some earlier words.

  19. This was extra hard for me because of 2 things:
    1. I only had 1 green letter after 4 tries (a single A in 2nd position)
    2. I refused to believe they would be that evil with double repeating letters.

    Nevertheless, I convinced myself to try it as 5th guess, and I've done it.

    I don't quite remember m,y guesses, but it was something like
    POINT > DRUID > something > BARON > MAGMA

  20. My first 2 in months, GAMER > MAGMA

  21. All gray on my first two guesses. Got it in 4, but it took me a LOT longer than a minute. STERN > CHILD > GAWKY > MAGMA

  22. Oh my, you look cooked XD What a hot guess, hot magma, hot summer day.

  23. Fools > Birch > Gamed > Magma was my solve path.

  24. Fools is a bad word to start with, 5 unique letters is ideal

  25. TIL: MUZAK is an accepted Wordle guess.
    Thanks for overdubbing & uploading this Mark!! Much appreciated! (Boo to the 5s, but yay for getting it in a minute)

  26. Better than AXING was CABIN. GAMUT was not good as it repeated the T. Better was BAGGY.

  27. I lost sleep over this word! Went to bed after three tries and woke up at three am saying ‘magma’??

  28. I picked the perfect word that day. MAGIC -> MAGMA for a win in 2

    Usually my “different word every day” falls miserably flat on its face, so it’s nice to get lucky occasionally.

  29. Nail biter. 😮 Adieu->scrAM->bAlMy->MAGMA😊

  30. Got this one in a somewhat crazy six. Didn't have the first letter and my guess 5 was gamma, with three greens and two yellows.
