Yep, muting the keyword "wordle" is still working.  So I don't need to do anything else right now.

I went the other way and am kicking myself for not trying both.

I tried Wordle and didn't understand it so I quit after two games.

OTOH I use somebody else's NYT subscription so is it acceptable to use that during a strike?

Try to guess a word based on how semantically similar are to the one you enter. (1 per day)

semantle.com/junior (easy common english words) or
semantle.com (a little more advanced. No obscure words anyway).

Redactle is also quite fun but very time consuming.  I would note that today's redactle was much harder than normal so don't give up on the puzzle forever because of this one.

Quordle is out there for you to play.

Of late, I've been getting into Semantle and Redactle

Semantle: Guess the mystery word. Words are scored based on how semantically similar it is to the secret word. Every word you guess is given a score and an indication of "cold", "tepid" or it's rank if it is in the top 1000 words considered to be closest to the mystery word.

Redactle: A Wikipedia article from the list of top 1000 wikipedia articles is selected. Most of the words are replaced by redaction [&&&&]. As you guess words, if the words appear in the Wikipedia article, they are replaced. Many common words (like the, it, and, a, is) are already in place. How fast can you guess the words in the title of the Wikipedia article? For the record, I got Redactle in 5 guesses today (a personal best. The structure of the title and the first paragraph gave me a good idea of what the topic was, took a couple guesses to get the third word right.

After over 100 guesses I knew the general area of the topic but wound up going to wikipedia to search for clues to eventually get the answer.  Hopefully tomorrow's will be easier.  New ones arrive at 12 noon Eastern time.  I'm guessing Misch got the low score on yesterday's which was much easier

Me too, at first. Now I can rattle off most.

Central Asia still trips me up a bit. But I don't think I'll ever get those island nations.

Maybe we're old or maybe the Facebook fascination is over. 90% of the posts on Facebook are people reporting their Wordle scores. And that's 3 people.
