Much though I enjoy seeing steam come out of the ears of Victor's avatar, this probably deserves its own thread.

6/6 today due to the c**ting American spelling.

Following yesterday's chat, I actually did start with Adieu today. Felt a bit cheaty doing that, not sure I'll do it again.

Worth noting that it is completely free. Any apps you see are rip-offs.

Having wondered what was going on in the "annoy" thread, I just played the game for the first time!

I got the word on the fifth attempt - it was an American spelling. Tried posting the colour block result thing here but I got a "characters unsupported" error.

Wait, so this isn't a mobile game? I downloaded Wordle on the Play Store this morning and I've been very confused as it's a completely different game :lol:

Interesting. I would delete it as a point of principle but from what I played it actually looked quite fun so I might keep it :lol:

I did see a few episodes of the UK version of Lingo and it is basically the same game, but I remember playing Cows and Bulls in the nineties which is basically the same game but with numbers, and Mastermind is also similar.

"Copycats" :lol:

Wordle is just a copy of a board game from the 70s FFS!

Today's is some strawberry floating bullshit, though. First time it's taken me more than four guesses. Absolute wankers.

Yeah but the point is Wordle is free and all these apps are capitalising on the interest by copying the style, format and name (which haven't been trademarked) to monetize it. One guy literally called it Wordle and charged $29.99 for a pro version :fp:

They're being removed from app store now anyway apparantly.
