Wordle Postgame Report, January 24, 2023

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.

January 24, 2023, COUNT, 3/6

WITH THE SPRING semester underway, I tried TEACH and learned a lot: it delivered a yellow T and yellow C, while eliminating any TH or CH possibilities, as well as any -CK endings. And it knocked out two common vowels. With all that in hand, I tried the C at the front and the T at the end, with CLOUT. They came up green, and the -OU- came up yellow, for COU-blank-T. COUNT or COURT? I played the N: one, two, three, four, five green boxes.

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!
