#Wordle has been a disaster area (or near-disaster area) lately … let’s see what happens today


  1. Holding my breath! I saw it wasn't a short and immediately worried about it. The trap was obvious but you got very, very lucky — as so often. I guess it's true: when you're really good, you make your own luck! 😺💚

    My own solve was similar: shirt, alone, munch, bunch, punch, hunch (and sigh of relief), bringing my current streak up to a magnificent TWO!

  2. Stare > Cloud > Punch > Munch > Hunch

    Wordle getting dangerous again.


    Down to the wire. I thankfully remembered BUNCH had been the answer before, but I did not remember LUNCH.

  4. Lost my streak, which was only at around 10 due to another rotter a couple of weeks ago, due to this. I got to the *UNCH on the second move and guessed all the wrong consonants.

  5. Lunch was the answer not too long ago, relieved to see you survived another day

  6. Got it in 5 guesses.
    Shock -> Latch -> Bench -> Winch -> Hunch

  7. I love that I regularly forget what was the word the day before (I need to do screenshots everyday, not just for in-twos), I was on edge of my seat with this one!

  8. This one stopped my streak, but I'm glad to see that yours continues on!

  9. Another last minute save! How do you do it? 🙂

    I took 6 for this one and I don't even play on hard mode (although I always try and play as if it's hard mode unless I intentionally choose not to).


    I think I was ok though. I don't think I had any other possibilities by the end. Was sure HUNCH had been the answer before, but I guess not.

  10. Same for me and for two days in a row I almost went out:
    A L I E N

    W R O N G

    S N U C K

    M U N C H

    B U N C H

    H U N C H

  11. EIGHT-FLASH-POUCH-BUNCH-HUNCH. Next up, let’s see if lucky SEVEN works out as a starting word.

  12. Survivor! Good for you, that PUNCH wasn't an option, there's also MUNCH, but BUNCH was, what I preferred to HUNCH:
    Wordle 990 5/6*
    After all, I've tested 13 wrong letters, half the alphabet!
    Today, it was "only" 9, but I lack yellow hints in March!
    Wordle 991 5/6*

  13. I'm not a big fan of content warnings, but lately Marks Wordles have definitely scared me. More than I care to admit.

  14. Tried Mark's first word today and didnt know or remember Bunch had been a word before. Didn't realize the M had already been used, either. Still ended with a 6 and making it to the next round without losing my streak.

    ⬛️⬛️⬛️🟨⬛️ EIGHT
    🟨🟨⬛️⬛️⬛️ CHARM
    ⬛️⬛️🟨🟩🟩 POUCH
    ⬛️🟩🟩🟩🟩 BUNCH
    ⬛️🟩🟩🟩🟩 MUNCH
    🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 HUNCH

  15. They've really been trying to end some streaks the past few days.

  16. I lost my streak on this one, too. I chose wrongly for my final guess.

  17. The answer coming in clutch today! Good job Mark!

  18. My streak ended with this one. I had 238 😞

  19. Hard mode got me on this one my final three guesses were MUNCH, PUNCH, and LUNCH. Forgot to look for the double letter option.

  20. Sadly I lost my streak of 230 on that one…fell into the _UNCH trap and while going through the possibilities I missed hunch

  21. Mark’s opening word sequence currently:


    Theme: The 5-letter numbers, from largest to smallest

    Next one down is SEVEN. (I somehow forgot about 7? How?)

  22. I also scraped by with a 6. Crime>Fancy>Bunch>Lunch>Punch>Hunch. My 6s are catching the 2s

  23. Lost my streak again on this one after APART a week or so ago, but at least it was a short streak!

  24. I genuinely can't believe how lucky he is with all these multiple solution final guesses. I have lost a streak at least twice in similar situations during Mark's current streak…. I hope for his sake he does the lottery!! 😅

  25. omg, Mark, you have to stop doing this to us!
    I'm so glad you didn't try "bunch"… well done, a well deserved win! 🥳🥳

  26. I got this one but lost my streak twice in the last couple of weeks by doubting my instincts. One guess left and ends with alon, is it talon, no salon is probably a better guess. it was talon. And the other one i can't remember but it was a similar situation.

  27. Lost my 3-digit streak today. Unfortunately, I tried bunch instead of hunch.

  28. Very similar to mine. Luckily I used B and L in previous guesses so that Hunch was the last possibility and got it in 6.

  29. are you allowed to put in non-words, intentionally getting it wrong but to learn more about potential letters?

    Like HBLPM?

  30. I had a very lucky day – HOUSE followed by HUNCH!
    Then I realised how many words it could have been.

  31. REACT > PUNCH > HUNCH. I had a hunch it was hunch after punch. I was so tempted to write bunch instead, but I know they've had a few double letters recently so risked it and it paid off.

  32. My play was similar. Was down to my last guess. I typed in BUNCH, but before hitting enter, I got a nagging feeling it had been the answer before so I paused for a few minutes and finally decided to backspace and try HUNCH.


  33. My streak ended. Glad you kept yours!


  34. I got also hunch on the last guess. But I think I already erased all possibilities for that I think. Still was very scared!

  35. I'm at the point where I just try any repeated letter first if I find myself in hard mode heck.

  36. I lost trying the lunch munch bunch sequence…argh!

  37. Wordle is just mean lately. Match, Piper, Hunch.

  38. I had luckily eliminated a protracted HMH situation by my 3rd guess by using the
    L & M to get this in 5 with: Dicey>clout>amuck>punch>hunch. 😅

  39. Maybe asked already, but when you have multiple possibilities, why don't you use a different word combining the missing possible letters to eliminate/achieve the solution?

  40. I was lucky with the HMH here, especially since I eliminated two possibilities with B&P.
