    Oh my, so much to unpack here.

    course I referred to it as a stupid game. I lost! (Only that one time…more or less).

    course I don’t like losing, no one does. Besides I’m allowed to be a little petulant. Even Lulu can play this game, for Buddha’s sake!

    not all teecha’s can speaka da engrish!

    silly old engineer!


    true story: my old man’s an engineer and so there was no way I was ever going to be an engineer. Despite it being a slam bloody good career!

    When you have one letter left and several possibilities its better to use a guess on a word that holds as many of your left over letters to eliminate which one it may be instead of blinding guessing and risking not getting it.

    Iceman what he means is if you have 4 letters correct like I did today than rather than picking 1 of many solutions find a word containing as many of the possible letter solutions and enter it so you may identify the correct letter solution. Hope that makes sense.

    Willy I agree your idea can work and I may try it next time, if there is one, however my usual process is to start at the top left of the qwerty keyboard and work my way across and down.
    Today I should have reversed that process.

    I typically start with:

    SAUCE
    DROIT

    Which can help to set up a 3.

    I start with
    Adieu
    if 1 e and no other vowels my 2nd word is usually
    obese

    in quordle/secordle/duotrigordle
    my first three words are
    Adieu
    story
    Black

    usually you will be able to start solving after this

    Noted, for cheating uses when you post up your coloured squares.

    That second word is way redundant with two more "e"?

    How about obeys?

    Your example does not help with duplicate “e” my example covers the possibility and has covered 3 possible “e” positions.
    Everyone has their own style.

    If no vowels in my first
    I go with “Stool”
    if only an I in first word I go with point or lions depending if I is in correct position or not.
