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.

MORE OF THE same, tedious, uninteresting. FLASK got nothing; WROTE placed a green R, T, and E. BRUTE didn't gain anything new. The missing vowel was going to be either I or a repeated E, and what would go with it would be—well, speaking of repeated letters, Wordle's most overused trick, what if that R got paired up with a second T. TRE—no, TRITE.

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.
