    Thoroughly enjoying it.

    Mostly getting the word on the 4th attempt.
    Was lucky once getting it at the 3rd attempt.

    Many spinoff websites popping up. Worldle, does a similar concept, but with maps of countries.

    First attempt today.
    Got it in three tries .
    Cheated a bit though while figuring out how it works.
    Will be addictive, for sure.

    Saw it all over my Twitter timeline for a month or 3 and finally decided to check it out last week.

    Absolutely love it. I've also "infected" my daughter and 9 other friends

    These are my stats from today.

    Do you start with a different word every day or the same word? I start with AUDIO, to cover as many vowels as I can. Click image for larger version.

    It is addictive. Thank goodness it's limited to one a day.

    Apparently salet (or trace or crate) are the best starters: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRed0Xmc2Wg

    Really cool game! And equally cool story - guy created it to play with his wife in lockdown, there are apparently 14500 5 letter words and she ticked the ones she knew 4500 odd which is ised as the base, he shared with friends in November - millions accessing it by end of Jan and sold to NY Times for seven figure $ís a week or two back.

    Also playing and enjoying it thoroughly. Clear example of how things go viral as I have heard about it from multiple sources over the last 3 weeks. Kinda wish I started earlier, but it is now a solid part of my morning routine (unless it is a challenging word like today's then it is part of my day &#128514

    I use the same 1st word every day trying to be heavy on vowels, but I know my word isn't the optimum, still it seems to work ok, so holding out for that day when it is the word of the day!

    I love it. Such a great concept. There is also an Afrikaans version, called wortel.
