Wordle Postgame Report, July 28
GAMES OF SKILL AND CHANCE DEP'T.
July 28, STOMP, 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.
ONE CONFIDENT STEP after another. CHORD planted a green O in the middle of the word. STOVE got a green S and T to go before it—and, maybe just as valuably, eliminated the E. STO- seemed like a configuration that could go on indefinitely, but with STONE or STOLE gone, it wasn't as bad as it looked. STOA- or STOI- didn't look likely. STOO-? Maybe, but consonant combinations first. STONK is not yet a word. STOMP? Crushed it underfoot.
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.
