I've got a new game in the mill. It uses X's and O's. I'm thinking of calling it Tic, Tac, Toedle. I post one first move each day.

Or are you saying that you tried it and it didn’t work for you? It hit on two letters this morning so it was a decent starting word.

As a nod to RP I normally start my Wordle with "Audio" as it includes four vowels which is the max.

I would stick with just smart. I doubt that he wanted to shell out patent and or trademark money and engage in any litigation. Now it’s NYT property and they have the deep pockets to do so. Cashing out while this is in an upward trajectory makes the most sense… in a year from now it might be Wordle who? The public is fickle.

Or was this a creation of the originator? Looks pretty much identical.

So, I went to the website Islander posted  https://www.wordleunlimited.com/ for unlimited practice. Here is the result of my first attempt. If someone can come up with the final word I'm interested. https://www.flickr.com/photos/...

Pretty sure it is from the original creator. Someone here loaded the link to it at the very beginning.
