Wordle Postgame Report, December 15
Ocean liner RMS 'Aquitania', 20th century.The Aquitania was built by John Brown and Company on the Clyde for the Cunard Line. Launched in 1914, she was converted for use as an armed merchant cruiser then a troopship during the First World War. After a refit in 1919 she took up her intended role on the transatlantic route to New York. Although slower than some of her RIVAL liners, Aquitania offered more luxurious accomodation. During the Second World War she again served as a troopship. After the war she was used to transport migrants to Canada before she was scrapped in 1950.

December 15, RIVAL, 4/6

I CONSIDERED STARTING with PORGY, then decided it would never be a Wordle answer, so I went with POKEY instead. All gray. Not a fast start. WRIST got a yellow R and I. With O and E out, the possibilities for moving the yellow letters, especially the I, seemed manageable. CHAIR wasn't right, but the A came up yellow too. RABID? No, the I couldn't go there. Also, on inspection, it couldn't go anywhere that would make an -AI- combination fit. Split them up, make two syllables, I goes first. RIVAL. Wordle was a worthy competitor today.

The Wordle Postgame Report will be posted semi-regularly on the website of the Indignity newsletter, and on Popula, which we encourage you to support. Thank you for reading!
