The Wordle Postgame Report is a brief analysis of a past 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.

I FELT GOOD about LOUSE as starter but it got me absolutely nothing. Zero letters out of five, including three vowels, is its own kind of information, though, if you want to look at it that way. Something completely different: PRICEY. The Y was green, everything else was gray. Nine misses out of 10 now, and the least helpful ending letter possible. This is where Absurdle goes to heck: MAMMY, NANNY, DADDY—on and on and on. How to at least fit as many different letters as possible into the narrowing format? TANGY. The obvious A went green, and the G went yellow. By now I just wanted to get it over with. Fine, double letters: GABBY. Yes to the initial G, no to the B's. What was left? Oh. Ugh. GAWKY.

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.
