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.

STONE-FRUIT SEASON! PEACH got a yellow A and C. COBRA kept them yellow in different places. What did the C want to go with? Maybe a K? But not at the very end. So: TACKY or WACKY? The B was already spent, so no need to see if Wordle would accept BACKY. I guessed Wordle would prefer TACKY and guessed wrong. WACKY, an answer that described itself, give or take the last letter.

The Wordle Postgame Report will be posted semi-regularly on the website of the Indignity newsletter, or possibly even daily if people turn out to want to read it. If you enjoy reading the Wordle Postgame Report, please subscribe to Indignity to support the writer in doing this and other things that would be hard to justify at a salaried day job.
