    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

    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.'

    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.

    It's not brief for everyone. But I nailed my first hit on row 2.

    Thanks for posting this. I have played the last 2 days and I now have a new addition to my morning routine. I'm 2 for 2 so far. First one took all 6 guesses and today only took 5.

    Wordle starts with a blank 5 x 6 grid and a keyboard. You fill in letters one row at a time, trying to get a certain word.

    It helps to know the frequency of occurrence for letters in English: ETAOIN SHRDLU. Linotype machines had these letters in two rows of 6, in their approximate order of frequency in the English language. Typesetters would test their machines by running their fingers down the rows, or use the letters to indicate an error in the typesetting, and occasionally would forget to remove them from the finished piece.

    It also helps to know the common arrangements (th, qu, ing, ed, ea, etc.)

    A fresh puzzle posts every day.
