#Wordle is a daily challenge to find a 5-letter answer by guessing words and using the information about which letters are in the word and which letters are correctky placed.


  1. 4 guesses for me.
    Mouse -> Enact -> Pried -> Pixel

  2. Mark’s opening word sequence currently:


    Theme: Anagrams of 5-letter countries (Benin, Libya, China, Sudan, Chile), arranged alphabetically

    Thanks a lot to @gillylod for figuring the theme out yesterday!
    I think tomorrow’s word will be ENEMY, an anagram of Yemen

  3. 4 for me as well, but it did take me a solid 5 minutes to find it.

  4. Got it in six today. For some reason my brain just could not accept "x" as a viable letter. 😅

  5. I went with PILER on 4th, so I typed the letters I knew with a placeholding X in the middle… 2 seconds lated the lightbulb switched on

  6. All possible anagrams for 5-letters countries that I found:

    abura: Aruba 🇦🇼
    benni: Benin 🇧🇯
    bialy: Libya 🇱🇾
    bogan: Gabon 🇬🇦
    chain: China 🇨🇳
    chiel: Chile 🇨🇱
    cogon: Congo 🇨🇬
    duans: Sudan 🇸🇩
    elchi: Chile 🇨🇱
    enemy: Yemen 🇾🇪
    ering: Niger 🇳🇪
    goban: Gabon 🇬🇦
    grein: Niger 🇳🇪
    laity: Italy 🇮🇹
    negri: Niger 🇳🇪
    nigre: Niger 🇳🇪
    nipas: Spain 🇪🇸
    obang: Gabon 🇬🇦
    omasa: Samoa 🇼🇸
    pains: Spain 🇪🇸
    panel: Nepal 🇳🇵
    penal: Nepal 🇳🇵
    pians: Spain 🇪🇸
    pinas: Spain 🇪🇸
    plane: Nepal 🇳🇵
    plena: Nepal 🇳🇵
    reign: Niger 🇳🇪
    reing: Niger 🇳🇪
    renig: Niger 🇳🇪
    ringe: Niger 🇳🇪
    spina: Spain 🇪🇸
    talma: Malta 🇲🇹
    tamal: Malta 🇲🇹
    tango: Tonga 🇹🇴

  7. Took me 6 attempts to get this, all while holding a Google Pixel in my hand 🤦‍♂️

  8. I guess I will go with ELCHI today as I started with ENEMY yesterday.

  9. And this time we couldnt see the keyboard properly, all because they ruined the scoreboard display to fit mobile. It used to look great as an overlay, now it's an ugly sea of white

    You could try zooming out to show both, but that would make it harder to read. You could resize the window entirely to line up the game and the scoreboard.

  10. Was sitting on PI_EL
    Took me about 2 Minutes and sounding out all remaining options, until I realized that Pixel is a word. Needless to say that I work in IT as a developer….


    I hoped for PIXIE to be the word, as I really like it, but PIXEL is a good one as well.

  12. Got it in 5 with an interval of several hours between attempt 4 and 5. Just could not think of a word that would fit.

  13. Stare > Lined > Pixel

    I paused for quite a bit before pressing enter on Pixel because X, but it's a common enough word. Glad I went for it.

  14. I sometimes use x as a placeholder when looking at a letter combination. I was testing PI_EL and it looked mighty good to me! Thanks for these, Mark.

  15. 4 here too:
    A L I E N

    L I V E R

    T I L E D

    P I X E L

  16. ENEMY-SLATE-PILED-PIXEL. I never heard of “ELCHI”. It looks like I’m going to be trying ENEMY two days in a row…


    Haven't had a six in a long while. Even QUEUE only took five. Maybe I should be giving my brain more time to wake up before attempting these.

  18. SHIRT, ALONE, FILED, PIXEL. I thought I remembered that PIXEL had been the answer before, but in fact it had been a PlusWord answer, and hasn't been a Wordle answer since I've been taking notes.

    Happy Thanksgiving to anyone who's celebrating!

  19. A 5 fo4 me. Relieved to get it as I took me quite some time to consider an X.

    ⬛️⬛️⬛️🟨⬛️ RADIO
    ⬛️⬛️🟨⬛️🟨 CHIME

  20. I was lucky to get this in 4 thanks to my 3rd word. EDIFY>IRATE>HELIX>PIXEL.

  21. phpht

    but there was no other solution so.

  22. adIEu-> sInEw->fIbEr->cIvEt-> PIXEL another nail biter! 😬
