New thread for Redactle so that Wordle lovers can go about their day without facing a wall of [show hidden text].

woof, Monday, 9 May 2022 10:48 (two years ago) link

I won't paste in discussion from the Wordle thread. It's just people being furious at themselves behind spoiler tags.

woof, Monday, 9 May 2022 10:51 (two years ago) link

260 guesses!

Ste, Monday, 9 May 2022 11:47 (two years ago) link

108 first time. Not sure this will replace Semantle for me.

koogs, Monday, 9 May 2022 13:16 (two years ago) link

I kinda like this, I'm no good at Semantle but I give up quickly, this feels like I'm seeing at least some progress in my guesses.

Ste, Monday, 9 May 2022 13:59 (two years ago) link

Yeah it I think it might be my favourite of all the time wastles, feels like more of a comprehensive brain workout than semantle. Or maybe it just hasn't lost its novelty value yet.

buffalo tomozzarella (ledge), Monday, 9 May 2022 14:04 (two years ago) link

yeah, I think either the novelty will fade or I'll build up enough anxiety about getting it quickly that it will become painfully tense and I will quit. But for now it's a really entertaining challenge every day.

woof, Monday, 9 May 2022 15:13 (two years ago) link

33 ?????? 83 57.83%

um...

really not sure why you get global stats some times and not others.

koogs, Monday, 9 May 2022 16:48 (two years ago) link

#33 in 46 @ 58.70% insect by 26, but wasn't really properly on it till I added the plural at 35. Annoying run of cricket/grasshopper/locust at 41-3 (after seeing title "The x and the ant"), where my brain should have been trying to get the thing like that with 6 letters… but they aren't very present in my UK English taxonomy of the world. Also, I think I head for myth/legend/folklore too early & get a bit lost there.

I think it can just take ages for stats to load? I didn't have them and just looked again and there they are.

woof, Monday, 9 May 2022 17:09 (two years ago) link

I kinda like this, I'm no good at Semantle but I give up quickly, this feels like I'm seeing at least some progress in my guesses.

Same.

@koogs I think it might be because you solved it too quickly? The global averages change over the day, and you can keep refreshing the page to see them change (usually up).

Anyway, #33 90 / 49%.

Star Trek: Strange New Wordles (Leee), Monday, 9 May 2022 17:20 (two years ago) link

117 in and I don't know any other kinds of insects :(

TWELVE Michelob stars?!? (seandalai), Monday, 9 May 2022 18:35 (two years ago) link

31 despite forgetting my usual guess of species. Guessing year and life gave me '__- year life _____' - obviously 'cycle', thx old bbc nature documentaries.

buffalo tomozzarella (ledge), Monday, 9 May 2022 18:55 (two years ago) link

> they aren't very present in my UK English taxonomy of the world. i felt this as well. and i think i threw away the same three things you did, and a bunch of others, because of it

koogs, Monday, 9 May 2022 19:00 (two years ago) link

163, 80% accuracy - knew it was an insect early on but a side bit of fun is seeing how many words I can fill in rather than just going for low score.

papal hotwife (milo z), Monday, 9 May 2022 19:02 (two years ago) link

A gruelling 375, but Kevin gave me the final guess. It’s one of his strongest fields of knowledge. Also learned how a certain long standing ILXor got their name.

mike t-diva, Monday, 9 May 2022 19:40 (two years ago) link

#33 in 167 with 56% accuracy, what a slog. Was thrown off by the cultural sections and didn't get it was something in nature till I got species at 116

Alba, Monday, 9 May 2022 20:01 (two years ago) link

37 guesses / 56.76% weirdly figured this out after trying "ant" and finding "the ______ and the ant" in the text, which I know by it's French title. Then took me a minute to remember what "Cigale" is in English

silverfish, Monday, 9 May 2022 20:10 (two years ago) link

121 not much to say really

TWELVE Michelob stars?!? (seandalai), Monday, 9 May 2022 20:37 (two years ago) link

I'm well into 200 guesses and have obviously stumbled into what type of thing this is, but I really don't think i'm going to get the actual word. I have no idea at all.

Ste, Tuesday, 10 May 2022 11:54 (two years ago) link

I started playing this yesterday, and didn't understand the rules entirely -- I thought you had to fill in all the blanks in order to win -- so I was surprised when I guessed one word and the game was over.

sarahell, Tuesday, 10 May 2022 13:52 (two years ago) link

yes pretty much how my first play was too

had "species" and "origin", which uncovered a mention of "Origin of the Species" somewhere near the bottom, which led me to the answer

silverfish, Tuesday, 10 May 2022 17:30 (two years ago) link

#34 434 / 48%

silverfish, I had that too but I didn't think laterally enough to make the connection, and my first 200 guesses were in the realms of medicine and technology -- my guess of television at 65 was a total red herring.

Star Trek: Strange New Wordles (Leee), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 18:00 (two years ago) link

papal hotwife (milo z), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 20:53 (two years ago) link

This has become part of my post-work routine now, when really I should be out getting some exercise or something.

I started with #13 (prophesy vs prophecy argh), so I've solved 22 now, with an average of 41.3 guesses. Never better than Meryl, never worse than College of Cardinals.

50 today - also taken down the wrong path. I forget that dogs can be popular too.

Michael Jones, Tuesday, 10 May 2022 21:23 (two years ago) link

it's always annoying when Redactle accepts a misspelled word, not that that accounted for more than one of my 176 tries today :(

TWELVE Michelob stars?!? (seandalai), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 23:16 (two years ago) link

#34 in 56, pretty happy with that.

Alba, Wednesday, 11 May 2022 08:22 (two years ago) link

#34 in 73, not entirely happy. I mean I remember the moment early on when I looked at my dog sitting beside me and thought 'I will type dog' then thought 'no, don't do that, wasted blind guess, just try animals instead'. Thought I was looking for something geographical/territorial till then and only really locked on when I properly noticed what looked like 'origin of the species' down in the popcult list. That still just made me think about dogs and not the name of the ship…

i think Cicadas was a bit too american-leaning also

koogs, Wednesday, 11 May 2022 16:43 (two years ago) link

Finished punching the air, jumping on tables, spraying room with tesco prosecco

Basically saw ****-***** in the first sentence and thought it looked a lot like it could be 'city-state'. Confirmed with 'state', then it was just figuring out a 9-letter city state that would get a really, really, really long article.

woof, Wednesday, 11 May 2022 16:47 (two years ago) link

xp
I dunno - I think it's just UK/Ireland that has no truck with cicadas - they are, as I learned from the article, just about everywhere fucking else.

(Apologies to the New Forest Cicada, our one native species, again, as I learned from the article)

I don't do the letter-counting thing but I'm not sure why I wasted a guess on Luxembourg which isn't even a city-state

TWELVE Michelob stars?!? (seandalai), Wednesday, 11 May 2022 21:10 (two years ago) link

I thought it was city-state but didn't guess that right away because I've been burned every single time that's what I thought it was. Played myself.
