    My first go took 8 rows to get a winner.

    Click on the yellow word Absurdle to bring up the game.
    I got Absurdle in 7

    M: I came here for a good argument.
    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    With Absurdle, I think it always leads to the same answer if you use the same guesses. I used the same first 4 words and it lead to the same correct 5th guess.

    I've been using the same word—all high-frequency letters—as a starter. Seems to work fairly well.

    Right-O! Unlike Wordle, it doesn't reset with a new target word each day, but follows the same process of elimination based on your choices. So, to play a new game, you have to start with a different guess and go from there.
