Wordle in a Minute starting with a SERVE today … in Hard Mode, remember

34 Comments

  1. Does a person set the daily Wordle word? I thought it was probably an algorithm.

  2. I have got this in two: SMILE -> BRIDE.

  3. I felt very stupid when I didn’t guess “bride” earlier. My wedding was only a few days ago! 😂

  4. A much needed 3 on my end.
    ⬜⬜🟧⬜🟧NOISE
    ⬜🟧🟧🟧🟧PRIDE
    🟧🟧🟧🟧🟧BRIDE

  5. Anyone know a good pair of starting words that contain all vowels and haven't been answers before?

    I need to move on from AUDIO + ENTRY. 🙂 Truth be told, they didn't have A and E in the greatest positions anyway.

  6. Mark’s opening word streak currently:

    TRUST DOUBT THEIR TIRED BEING ABOUT HATED DREAM THINK TREAT THOSE TRUTH FOOLS WATCH STOOP BUILD TOOLS START AGAIN NEVER FORCE HEART NERVE SINEW SERVE

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

    The current line is “To serve your turn long after they are gone”, so AFTER should be next

  7. I nearly tried Brine but felt Bride was more likely

  8. SERVE-PRIME-TRITE-BRINE-BRIDE, matching Mark’s 5 today. We both thought of brine first. Oh well. After serve, we’ll serve up AFTER.

  9. I find myself thinking about consonant blends a lot in this game. Thanks for these daily brain wake-ups, Mark.

  10. A decent start but ended up with a 4. Dream>Prude>Erode>Bride

  11. A routine 4, no major excitement 🙂

    🟨⬛🟨⬛⬛ EARNT
    🟨🟨⬛🟨⬛ REMIX
    🟩🟩🟩🟨⬛ BRIEF
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 BRIDE

  12. WEIRD-DRIVE-?-BRIDE i was convinced drive was right but it wasn't 😉

  13. 2nd guess was a hail mary with double letters just to find where the E went, got it after guessing Probe.
    Auger – Terse – Probe – Bride

  14. Got some good letters from my second guess which didn't leave me with many other options.
    SHARP – DRINK – BRIDE

  15. I also did Brine before Bride, I don't feel so bad about that now 😂

  16. Ha ha, tried BRINE, and even BRIBE before I tried BRIDE because I thought it was too obvious.

  17. Funnily enough, my cousin is getting married today, so she'll likely get a kick out of this. 😆 Have a good one, Mark.

  18. A 4 for me.

    Tried out a word another commenter suggested as a good way to discover consonants. It just gave me 5 letters not in the answer. So, I went back to one of my oft used starting words to get something going.

    NYMPH RADIO DRIER BRIDE

    Average result with Nymph for me. I may try it again another time.

  19. After these first two words, my third word was going to be BRUTE, which would have been wrong. 😄

  20. CHAOS -> FLIRT -> BRINE -> BRIDE

    Like Mark, I went for the salty solution before the wedding woman.

  21. I see lots of people also tried BRINE before BRIDE, I'm in good company.
    "Revenge of the 5s"… to be continued. 😤
    Thanks for the video, and well done, Mark!! 👏👏👏

  22. Answer to September 2nd puzzle again has repeated letters. His starter word will be THERE from the line "And so hold on when there is nothing in you". And it will all be grey. Then he will have to use the other four vowels: "A", "I", "O", and "U". Also, "H", "R", and "T" each get ruled out leaving with only 18 consonants. Each of those 18 consonants is making me cry. Every consonant except one will be grey.

  23. Got it in 3: SHIRT, PRIME, BRIDE — which was, of course, just luck. But somehow I've got more 3s than 5s.

  24. I’m so invested in the battle between 3s and 5s

  25. aDIEu->oxIDE-snIDE->glIDE->
    chIDE->BRIDE
    So much for thinking outside the box. Bride was the second word I thought of. 😥 No 2 for me.

  26. “I wonder if the person who sets it knows someone who is getting married today” is exactly the sort of thing a crossword solver would think!

  27. BOUND >BADLY> BRIDE

    Let me know if I should finish writing this story

  28. I have a screen shot of a round of wordle that went like this:

    fIGHT
    nIGHT
    rIGHT
    tIGHT
    lIGHT
    sIGHT

    The word was MIGHT. 😢

  29. SERVE is not a horrible starting word, but it only tests one vowel. I'd go with a word with two or three vowels.
