Wordle Postgame Report, August 11
GAMES OF SKILL AND CHANCE DEP'T.
August 11, GLEAN, 3/6
The Wordle Postgame Report is a brief analysis of a game of Wordle, the five-letter-word guessing game now owned by the New York Times. If you do not play Wordle, Indignity encourages you to please skip this item. The existence of the Wordle Postgame Report does not constitute an endorsement of playing Wordle, of not playing Wordle, or of the New York Times.
SEARCHING THE LOWER rows for something to start with, I picked BLADE. It cut a swath through the gray: green L, yellow A, yellow E. I gathered the vowels into the logical bundle: _ L E A _. CLEAN was almost it, a gray first letter and a sweep of green afterward. I worked my way through the field of remaining letters—useless and unwanted, almost all of it, except a single overlooked G. GLEAN.
The Wordle Postgame Report will be posted semi-regularly on the website of the Indignity newsletter, or possibly even daily if people turn out to want to read it.
