Wordle Bot Analysis

After I complete a Wordle I always head over to check in with Wordle Bot to see how I scored, both in terms of each individual guess and whether or not I outsmarted the Bot.

It’s kind of like deja vu all over again. I began my guessing today, like yesterday, with an opening word that did not do very well at all. Chore (which I thought of because I feel like I’m constantly doing them) was pretty bad, leaving me with 369 remaining possible solutions.

Maybe I thought of stain because cleaning them up is a chore but this word only cut that number down to 51. Not great.

For whatever reason, when I was thinking about rearranging the ‘A’ and ‘E’ the very first word that popped into my head was bagel. I thought “Sure, why not” but didn’t expect it to be right. When all the letters turned up green, well, I guess I wish I’d thought of that as my opening guess but this was still a good outcome!

Today’s Score: I get 1 point for guessing in three and 0 points for tying Wordle Bot, for a grand total of 1 point. Huzzah!

Play Competitive Wordle Against Me!

I’ve been playing a cutthroat game of PvP Wordle against my nemesis Wordle But. Now you should play against me! I can be your nemesis! (And your helpful Wordle guide, of course). You can also play against the Bot if you have a New York Times subscription.

  • Here are the rules:1 point for getting the Wordle in 3 guesses.
  • 2 points for getting it in 2 guesses.
  • 3 points for getting it in 1 guess.
  • 1 point for beating Erik
  • 0 points for getting it in 4 guesses.
  • -1 point for getting it in 5 guesses.
  • -2 points for getting it in 6 guesses.
  • -3 points for losing.
  • -1 point for losing to Erik

You can either keep a running tally of your score if that’s your jam or just play day-to-day if you prefer.

I’d love it if you gave me a follow on Twitter or Facebook dearest Wordlers. Have a lovely day!
