Wordle Warriors

433 years worth of daily 5-letter words left!

Yes I know this is Scrabble, but there are enough Wordle images out there!

There are quite a few out there now. It’s the new chess. Get the word right in as few moves as possible and share the good news (or not) on your favorite social media platform. The spinoffs are well under way. The original idea was for one puzzle a day. Such is our conditioning, however, that one is never enough, so a number of spinoffs are offering unlimited opportunities to get a whole range of five-letter words out there.

This creates a problem for the dedicated Wordle purist. How does one compare the result of the stoic and disciplined one daily Wordle in a plethora of chaos? One must simply and doggedly use the original site at https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ and be blinkered to the rest.

Wordle Warriors rise to the cry!
Five letter words slipping us by.
Grit your teeth, stay with the plan –
Tease out those letters as best as you can.

Eschew the spinoffs, even for practice
Their many variations only distract us!
Four letter, six letter, random theme driven –
These abominations unforgiven!

Let’s stick with the method as long as we can
When we run out of words – then change the game plan
Could be a while as words are a plenty
433 years worth – give or take twenty!

158390* – freedictionary.com estimation of valid five-letter words at one per day = 433.95 years (not taking leap years into account).
