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, not playing Wordle, or of the New York Times.

December 28, IMPEL, 4/6

OOF! AN OPENER of GRUNT got nothing. CLAIM came up yellow on the L, I, and M. SMILE felt like a good answer but only the M turned green, while the yellow L and I were joined by a yellow E. Now the only places for the I were at the beginning or the end. IM-what? Nothing began with an IML-. The possibilities were so restricted as to force me in a single direction: IMPEL.

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!
