One-Liner Wednesday – Noooooo!

49 Comments

I lost Wordle yesterday after a 145-day streak. Who else plays this stupidly frustrating game?

Photo: Screenshot of my Wordle stats: 180 games played, 99% won, current streak 0 games, maximum streak 145 games.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  5. I just noticed that I hit 200 today with 100% record. But that’s not correct because I definitely stuffed one up in there sometime and I’ve also forgotten one day. So the longest streak is only 76. I have to figure a way to stop this stupid addiction.

  6. I play it when I have time. Not every day. It may say it is a game I view it as mental gymnastics and nothing more. I try to vary my first word. If you choose well it gives clues which way to go. If not oh well !

  8. I’m hooked! So far doing okay but I’ve never gotten the word in less than three tries.

    • The one I got off the bat was the starter word I’m still using. I tried changing it (because obviously it’s never going to come up again as the word of the day), but I did so much worse without it that I switched back. My two-guess puzzles were lucky guesses as were a lot of my three-guess answers.
      It’s so addictive!

  21. I don’t play but my spouse and elder daughter do. They post their results in our family chat every day. No keeping track of streaks, though.

  24. I lost yesterday, too 😦 I didn’t have a long streak going, I had lost once in June. I hate it when you have the 1st, 2nd and last letter and you can think of 8 words that work.

  25. Yes Wordle is very frustrating. Initially I played along with the kids and we were definitely competitive. My longest streak is 63 I think but my eldest son took great delight in posting a screenshot of his 100 % record and 100 streak which beat all of us. I think he got up to about 130+ before finally failing.
