Like many of you, I started playing Wordle during the pandemic. It was fun for a long time, then it wasn’t.
I’m not sure what got me playing again, but I think the Wordlebot had something to do with it. Every time I play now, I consult the little bot to see how it did and what it recommends in terms of words. As a result, I have become better at the game. Some of the go to words I use frequently now because of what I’ve learned from Wordlebot are:
the other day I played CRANE and first and then went with SLOTH and got it in two. If only I had made SLOTH my starting word! Oh well. It’s fun for me again, and that’s what counts.
Also I play it quickly these days. Before I could spent easily 30 minutes on it: now I try and be done in 5.
