Defend The Indefensible: Wordle

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

This garbage psy-op robot nonsense has taken over a significant percentage of my social media feeds. What's worse, its adherents seem to be extremely defensive about any and all criticism of their willful perversion of the signal-to-noise ratio. A pox on all of thee.

I think its neat that it's a one-a-day thing and everyone gets the same word. the communal aspect of that is cool & I like that it only asks for a couple minutes of your day. watching Twitter bitch about a word like TACIT is kinda fun

frogbs, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 04:42 (two years ago) link

Tbh, I don't see it in my Twitter feed as much as I did a month ago, though I'm still playing and enjoying it. I usually do it when I'm making coffee in the morning, and I agree that it's nice to have a little 5-minute diversion once a day.

jaymc, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 04:47 (two years ago) link

like I'm actually kind of charmed that there's a popular game that does NOT encourage people to play it as much as possible. makes me feel like someone actually respects my time

frogbs, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 04:49 (two years ago) link

Agree with these last few, although these days I kind of enjoy the quordle challenge more. Someone I know described wordle itself as an amuse-bouche which I thought was fair and apt.

Yeah, I've only ever shared a result a few times, but wgaf if people want to do it every day. It's better than seeing corny self affirmation graphics and other people's horoscope memes.

I play and enjoy, wouldn’t really think to post results on socials but I have a few Wordle pals with whom it is fun to compare experiences - feel a small dose of wholesome fun is allowed IMO

Was surprised when it was sold to the NYT for a “low six figure sum”, felt it was probably worth quite a bit more

It’s an easy & fun puzzle to do over a cup of tea

The once-a-day release and the social aspect (plus the visual aspect of the squares &c) is the inspired part for sure, it’s been said enough times but during the pandemic these low-stakes communal experiences are particularly appreciated. Same goes for that spelling bee thing that I don’t play because not free (also I played a trial version and it said LING is not a word which anyone who’s ever done a crossword might have something to say about)

i will never take time from my busy important life to play a daily word game but i greatly like the way wordle's soothing untranslateable abstract pattern pops up to interrupt the relentless harshness of my war-torn TL its like visual ASMR from donald judd

mark s, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 11:35 (two years ago) link

Once I realized there was no skill involved, and heaps of luck, and few don't eventually guess the word, I quickly stopped playing. But I concede there's probably something soothing to that for some folks. Not everything has to be doing the Times crossword in pen with the timer going.

I love Quordle and play it every day. So does my bf and my mom.

Gary Gets His Tonsure Out (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 2 March 2022 12:51 (two years ago) link

It seems like the bulk of people came to Wordle very late in its run (the first time I remember seeing results shared en masse was somewhere in the 190s), so I have to imagine many of the most familiar words had already dropped off the list before people noticed it. I suspect it will be a very long time before we see a word repeated, but ones in common usage will be fewer and farther between until then.

I do find the copycats thing annoying as they spring up so quickly it feels cynical and like skilled people not busy enough in their job are just hanging around waiting for someone else to prove something is worth their precious time and effort. Ah wait this has kinda been my life MO minus the actual success and now I am too busy.

@ johnny fever are you suggesting that ..... we are running out of words after 200 games?

.....

Ár an broc a mhic (darraghmac), Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:00 (two years ago) link

Nope, I'm just guessing that Wardle, when developing the game, probably used a lot of commonly used words first before poring over his dictionary for stretching out the game's lifespan. NYT is still following the original game's numbering and wordlist afaik, so the words are only going to get more obscure before it circles around and gets easy again.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:09 (two years ago) link

so its creator is called Wardle ffs

I feel this fact will have been discussed to death on corners of the web I've thankfully not encountered yet

imago, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:14 (two years ago) link

some words that have already appeared as answers: rebut, humph, whelp, wooer, agora (last one removed by nyt). i'm guessing he randomised the list (of 2315 words, enough for over 6 years of gameplay), which was already had very obscure words filtered out by his girlfriend.

I like it because it's only once a day--it's impossible to develop the kind of addiction I have to internet Scrabble and internet backgammon. Half the time I forget to even check for that day's Wordle. I've done about 40--only got it in two once. I don't think I'd ever post on Facebook about it...though I do post Scrabble screenshots here and on Facebook.

It seems like the bulk of people came to Wordle very late in its run (the first time I remember seeing results shared en masse was somewhere in the 190s), so I have to imagine many of the most familiar words had already dropped off the list before people noticed it.

(xps & ledge has already got there first but)

I agree that this could happen (though have not paused to guess how many five letter words might be reasonably familiar to most people) but the 3rd and 4th Wordle answers were "sissy" and "humph"!

Can only imagine the reaction to those on Twitter now, "sissy" with a triple letter and a word I would not care to use in conversation unless very obviously joking, and "humph" right on the onomatopoeic word-or-not faultline (although I think it came up in Dordle or Quordle or Octordle recently).

(Yes I have been playing all 4 of these games lately; Wordle is a nice quick thing to do when you have a spare minute, and Quordle hits the a better sweet spot for actual puzzliness for me. Octordle is just too much, although possibly only because the UI is horrible and you can only see two of the words at once.)

a passing spacecadet, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:25 (two years ago) link

Once I realized there was no skill involved, and heaps of luck

Half agree with this. One weird thing is that getting it in two (where's there's at least some reasoning involved) is more impressive than getting it in one (100% blind luck). I feel like I've used a lot of reasoning in the ones I've gotten in three and four.

clemenza, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:28 (two years ago) link

I mean there’s the same amount of luck involved as other letter guessing games like wheel of fortune & hangman

ok what the fuck is happening in the uk (rain) (wins), Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:30 (two years ago) link

xp yes, picking a second or third guess to eliminate as many alternatives as possible is definitely something you can do to improve on blind luck.

here's a few out of many non obscure words in the last 50 or so (apologies if anyone remembers this six years from now and complains about spoilers): hello, adult, rival, piece.

ledge, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:31 (two years ago) link

I'd say getting it in 2 is mostly just luck, though you can boost your chances a bit, and there can be a large amount of luck even with the 3s; if you're unlucky and/or don't pause to think through all the options you can lose, but most players will get there in less than 6 most days. So from the game design point of view Wordle is not perfect, but it's a fun enough pastime for a tea break, anyway.

And I admit when I see the green and yellow squares popping up I mostly think "nobody cares how many you got it in" (but yes, I've still talked about the day's puzzles online, so guilty too) but it's kind of nice to see the internet talking about something so harmless imo.

a passing spacecadet, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:38 (two years ago) link

Working from home, I get to watch a TV quiz show called "Lingo".

This, basically, is the same as Wordle. Or so it seems.

I have not signed onto "Wordle" or anything similar, as the TV show is enough already.

Mark G, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:39 (two years ago) link

(xp to self) Or, a month ago there were a lot of squares on my timeline and I'd think "nobody cares" but now there aren't so many, so when they do pop up it can be vaguely interesting to see if I can work backwards a bit to guess what word the poster started with.

(If I know them well enough to care at all what random words they typed into a webpage, which tbh is probably a stupid thing to think about at all.)

a passing spacecadet, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 14:40 (two years ago) link

I just tried Semantle! God it is hard. I guessed the second-closest word on my 25th guess then spent my next twenty guesses on variations of that word instead of... something immediately adjacent to that word

flamboyant goon tie included, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 15:44 (two years ago) link

Wordle is fine. I'm less interested in it now that it's on the Times website, and presumably will be paywalled soon. I still do them some days. It was fun when it was just a random web thing, sort of felt like a 90s internet throwback. I knew it wouldn't last that way.

Yeah, this. I don't post my own results on social media, but my wife and text them to each other every morning, and I'll occasionally chime in on someone else's Wordle post. I think it's a charming little game, with a charming little backstory, and it's charming that the dude got a million bucks from the NYT for something he made just for fun. Hard for me to see the harm.

my wife and I, that should say.

Gary Gets His Tonsure Out (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 2 March 2022 15:53 (two years ago) link

the original site's code was 100% client-side so you could just save the webpage to your computer and it would work offline for another 6 years until it runs out of words. i.e. it was made in a way thats impossible to paywall. the times basically just bought the name & idea.

ciderpress, Wednesday, 2 March 2022 16:00 (two years ago) link

My favorite thing was the pissy person on Twitter who scraped the word list from the code and made a bot that would post spoilers for tomorrow's word on everyone's results, I have never been irritated by something so much that it made me go out of my way to be an ass to people I don't know

i just had a look at phrazle, which is identical to worlde except it's a phrase not a word. you wouldn't know it from the instructions, which have been written by an a.i. or a moron or both:

As a logic puzzle game, Phrazle requires players to have excellent analytical skills. In Phrazle, there are no set rules for the open-ended play and format. You are encouraged to come up with your own rules or simply improvise. The key to winning the game is identifying word and phrase patterns. Four random words are given in each round's set. You have a certain amount of time to write down as many phrases as you can using these four words. The game will provide some facts before each round so you can guess the context. These won't affect how you play, but they can help you guess what other players are trying to do.

In fact, you will have six attempts to guess sentence patterns and phrases. Each guess must include only words that are legitimate and use all spaces. The color of the tiles will change to indicate how close your guesses are to the correct answer after each one:

💠 Green: The letter is in the first word and in the correct position.

💠 Yellow: Although it is in the first word, the letter is in the incorrect location.

💠 Purple: The letter is in the phrase but not in the second word.

💠 Gray: Letters are not in the phrase.

Tips And Tricks

In every game, the rules are one of the core factors that make the game attractive. With Phrazle we will give you examples to help you understand the rules and how to play better:

The word must have at least two parts. When you come up with a word to look up, simplify it and think of the words closest to you. For instance, a word like "fruit" has two components in Phrazle. The term "fruit" is what we often conceive of as a whole, while the word "u" is what we define in Phrazle.

Each word in a sentence must appear at least once. One of the most crucial regulations is this one. You're not playing the same round like everyone else if you break it. If you don't follow this rule, you can still use common words, but you must use at least one Phrazled word in your phrases.

Try using some of the more complex techniques you first discovered now that you are familiar with the game's rules. For instance, try flipping words or making sentences using synonyms or antonyms. Breaking the guidelines you learned above if you're seeking more complex techniques. For instance, you may still utilize Phrazled words in a sentence even though they don't exist in it. Likewise, you may employ synonyms for terms, such as "antidisestablishmentarianism."

Four random words are given in each round's set - no?
The game will provide some facts before each round so you can guess the context - nope
they can help you guess what other players are trying to do. - what other players?
Purple: The letter is in the phrase but not in the second word. or it might be in the second word but not in the first, did you think about that?
In every game, the rules are one of the core factors that make the game attractive. - couldn't agree more!
For instance, a word like "fruit" has two components in Phrazle. The term "fruit" is what we often conceive of as a whole, while the word "u" is what we define in Phrazle. - ok bye!
