What would be interested is, for a word with two As, if you entered AAAAA, would two of them show green and the rest grey? Or would two of them be green and the rest yellow?

I'd hope for the former as I agree the latter would be misleading.

It'd knock back AAAAA as it's not a word.

But theoretically, yes, the former.

I tested this with today's puzzle, and you can see that two of the Bs are marked as green/yellow, but the redundant third one is grey.

Very nice, good work team :msgreen:

Big fan of how the internet takes Wordle spoilers more seriously than any other media.

First time I ever played this today and I won but only because I got the hint in here. The main reason I struggled is i couldn't think of any five letter words. Eventually got it in 6.

Can also be played with sequences of coloured squares/dots as seen in the game Mastermind.

Well, Mastermind doesn't typically tell you which colours are correct. And a numbers-based game isn't really the same thing because you can use any combination of numbers, but you can't spell XXTZP or whatever.

Basically those games are pure logic and reasoning puzzles, whereas Wordle and Lingo are vocabulary puzzles with a logical clue system.

I use the same first word each day. Helps me that way.

Got today's by the skin of teeth again (that's two 6s in a row). 23 day streak. 8-) The tension dropping that last guess was quite something.

I'm not convinced today's solution is even a word.
