Yup. I had tried RADIO before too...
 

i always try "uncle" first and "lomax" second

The word which seemed the least likely to me was the correct one this time.  A varying trend apparently.

I'm not entirely sure getting letters early is the best strategy, particularly in hard mode, because then you are stuck with them. I frequently use BRINY to start with, which often fails to get a single hit, but it narrows down the following options a lot. 
When I do go for early hits, TEAMS is good, as a lot of words finish with S. T is the most common consonant IIRC, and E and A the most common vowels (again relying on my shaky memory here). If TEAMS fails I then go for CLOUD.
The times I have failed is when you set the vowels early, but are confronted with a huge number of possible combinations of consonants, e.g. xAxEx 

I haven’t been playing Wordle long enough but I’m kind of stuck on the additive approach as it hasn’t failed me yet. Not sure about your “S” theory above as it is most used to indicate a plural and I don’t think I have seen a plural word as a Wordle answer yet.

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.

He got a seven figure check for something that he did as a hobby plaything. It went viral, he got some fame/notoriety and an offer.  I'm sure there is some larger value (evidenced by the NYT offer), but I'd also take that check and run. Sometimes you want to take those chips off the table.

Smart and not-so, at the same time. It went nuclear so he didn't have time, but he or NYT could patent the game and also get a design patent for the look of it as well. The road is tougher now, I think, but not impossible. Lazy knows for sure.


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.
