SISSY, wtf


potato_banana37

That was the SECOND Wordle EVER. How did you even know about Wordle then?


scragglebootz

Oh I didn't! I go back to the archives occasionally and play old ones ☺️


Double-Duck-2605

Do you have a link to old wordles? The one I had went away after it was purchased.


scragglebootz

Unfortunately not, the one I used is gone now also 🙁 sorry!


Double-Duck-2605

Thanks for the reply 🤗


AnvilOfMisanthropy

I've no idea how [wordleunlimited](https://wordleunlimited.org/) works wrt old/new wordles, but it's great if you just need more than one wordle a day.


asru37

I agree -- and this was the 2nd or 3rd ever Wordle and I was irritated. Could have been SILLY (my choice) I had a hard time accepting the fact that they Really wanted SISSY --


tottenhammad1234

Todays is the first one that has made me leave it overnight (usually do them at midnight) still trying to work it out now vivid annoyed me too but got lucky when I tried livid


languid-libra

Today's is so hard, I was scared I wasn't gonna crack it


melonlollicholypop

Same. First time I really felt a loss was imminent.


lukesvader

It took me a long time, even when I was lucky to get the first letter right and 2 out of place on the second try.


melonlollicholypop

Yes!! I had 4 yellows by third guess and was still struggling to even make a single word, much less choose a best word.


lukesvader

I gave it to my wife. She looked at it for half an hour and came up blank. I spent another half hour and it finally clicked. I guess this is why I love the game 😁


TrinityBellewoods

I had to leave it too! But then I thought about it super hard based on a 🟨 that I literally had no idea where it could go


Songwritersf

I forgot. What was the word?


Samaranthrix

Lol I did that a few days ago when the word was >!ALLOT!<. After 1 or 2 guesses I was convinced I was at the precipice of >!FLOAT BLOAT GLOAT!< hell and had to sleep on it.


Songwritersf

Which word?


opobdtfs

I had 3 losses in 149 attempts: "TRUSS", "PERKY", and "AMPLE", though they likely weren't the worst. TRUSS was bad, the others shouldn't have been that difficult. The worst ones are the ones with 1 missing letter out of a common word pattern: SHA\_E, \_ATCH, \_OUND, S\_OUT, S\_ARE, STO\_E


callsignomega

True. Especially in hard mode they are the worst


Aureo_Speedwagon

AMPLE was the best one I had. I always use MAPLE as my first word for whatever reason, so I got 🟨🟨🟩🟩🟩.


Fair_Ad9108

that must have felt pretty lucky 😀


MadeThisUpToComment

Are those "whatever reasons" Canadian?


Aureo_Speedwagon

Surprisingly, no, lol.


lukesvader

The ones with the 1 missing letter are [the worst](https://www.reddit.com/r/mildlyinfuriating/comments/ts6mzd/i_had_a_34day_streak/)


randompas

Ample was my second greatest game I started with audio then ample because of a quordle I lost earlier to that word


AnvilOfMisanthropy

I just added (sorta) \_ITTY to [my list](https://www.reddit.com/r/wordle/comments/u4lz5o/here_are_the_word_patterns_that_keep_ruining_your/) today.


SanchoMandoval

FOYER is still the only one I've missed in 130 dailies. So many ?O?ER words...


Sumatradc

Me too. Cover was my first guess and I was soooo excited to get 3 letters (in their correct places!). Guess #2 - boxer: nope. Guess #3 - poker: nope. Guess #4 - loser: nope. Guess #5 - dozer: nope. Guess #6 - mower: nope, I'm out. So far that's the only one I've failed on.


Double-Duck-2605

Think this was my only miss too.


Large-one

That is why I missed homer…that and it was stupid world.


ElWanderer_KSP

I also missed HOMER and felt it to be a stupid word!


EveAndTheSnake

I got FOYER on my second guess. I almost put it as my first guess that day and was so mad I thought it was a stupid word. I don’t know why, FOYERs on the brain I guess.


CuriousHedgehog636

Oh yes, I remember almost tanking on this one


EggOnYoFace

My mother in law, who is known for getting the most random words in 2, got this in 2


Watdabny

Vouch Went through couch, pouch touch Nightmare


callsignomega

Those are the worst to play on hard mode


JazzmanJB

My two biggest losses were HOMER because I never thought that'd be an actual word, and WATCH because of all the other _ATCH words I guessed before it


CrazyBlueDaisy21

HOMER was the worst!


BirdBurnett

Homer is my only loss in 108 games


lukesvader

I only got homer because no other letter fitted. [Couldn't believe it.](https://imgur.com/a/kq5iBZR)


callsignomega

Me neither. But I just entered it simply to check and got it right. That was a frustrating one


melonlollicholypop

Homer struck me as really unfair. I got it, but as I guessed, I assumed I was just throwing away the guess to learn about positioning.


NoobOnTheRoad

I also was stuck in the \_ATCH words and for my 2 final guesses I had catch, watch and hatch What I did was use "VOUCH" so that I could see if there was a "c", a "h" or a "w" (the w could come if all the "CH" letters were gray


EmiBeatrice

I failed this after trying HOVER, HONER, and HOPER. I was such a new player at the time, I didn't realize people's names could show up. My only other loss ever was LARVA, because I didn't know yet that repeat letters were allowed. Currently sitting at a 96% winrate just because of those two.


JazzmanJB

Thats the thing though. Names aren't valid inputs. The name Homer is because the word Homer means moron. I didn't even know that until this wordle


stewartthehuman

>Homer It's a word that means 'Home Run'.


EmiBeatrice

...huh. After googling this, I realize that that sort of reference would be completely lost on a non-American, non-natively-English-speaking audience.


NixFisher

Today's.


msanjelpie

It's a common starter word.


climbing_pidgeon12

exactly! as far as I'm concerned it's not a word!


danish_princess

It's definitely a word. But if you don't live in a particular country, or possibly even in a particular region of that country, I can see it being something you'd never hear.


Doint_Poker

Having heard Credence Clearwater before definitely helps


climbing_pidgeon12

yeah exactly, I'm from a country that speaks the same language but no-one I've spoken to has ever heard the word, I got it through brute force trial and error myself


tu-BROOKE-ulosis

Disneyland has a restaurant called that. Until I came to the comments, I had no clue this was an uncommon word.


JammyWaad

Yeah a >!Princess and The Frog!< song uses it a lot. Still took me half a day to get it though 😂


Crazy__Donkey

match/ patch /catch/ batch /hatch - **WATCH** i remember nailing 3 (or 4) letters (not all in order) right on 1 word. nailing all 4 letters ( patch -> ?atch) on the 2nd word. 4 more false tries only to get the answer from the site. ​ edit - found a [screen shot](https://imgur.com/a/5l3mGpY) also edit - my memory failed me on this one :)


logatwork

That wasn't a bad word per se... the thing is that all those -atch words have the same sound. But "watch" sounds different! That's why I thought it was so hard.


Misterbreadcrum

This was by far the worst one. It’s the only one I’ve ever missed. This was a huge miss on their part.


norcaltiger21

Only one I've missed so far :(


CakeDayOrDeath

That was the first one I ever lost, I feel you on that


msanjelpie

Yup only one I've missed. Cried that night. Felt so stupid for not remembering that not all English words that are spelled similar sound the same. E.g. bone, done, gone


lukesvader

[I also failed on this one](https://imgur.com/a/ltiDKo5)


optional_wax

Never play hard mode!


Crazy__Donkey

but i like it more.


optional_wax

Fair enough :) I guess there's a strategy there of avoiding deadly patterns.


AnvilOfMisanthropy

Learning to recognize "the trap" and composing a good filter word and keeping the streak is the game. For me.


doseofvitamink

SHAME, because not only did I X/6 on it, but because it flashed up the word "SHAME" right above after I lost, and that hurt, haha.


Doint_Poker

I can't believe only one person said epoxy... And the day before when it was like "Nymph" or some bullshit


tPTBNL

Ha, NYMPH was brutal.


dontwanttowasteit

Todays for real. Vivid is quite a common word where I’m from so got lucky with that one. How’d you go with todays?


quinnmanus

I just got lucky and managed to type in random letters. I had no idea what that word meant before tho.


callsignomega

Haven't tried it out. Will update once I get on it.


[deleted]

[удалено]


yearn2churn

Spoiler alert


n9obs_win

i got it in 4! but messed up one of the guesses


Udayify

I hated ZESTY the most


blackbeanqueen

I actually remember zesty is one of like three words that i got in two tries! I often use taser as a starting word and the est in it just made me think zesty 😭 honestly not the best 2nd guess in general but it was that day!


Arctic_is_epic

Probably the one today


OneOfManyChildren

VIVID was my second ever game and my only loss. I didn’t realise that when a letter is repeated in a word, Wordle doesn’t inform you. My 93 streak should be 95. Still bitter lol


callsignomega

I feel your pain


PapaUrinal

The word was KNOLL a couple months ago. Luckily got it on my sixth guess.


soundboythriller

Oh god, I think I blocked that one out of my mind because I was so mad about that word.


FistofanAngryGoddess

That was my first loss. Totally forgot that “kn” is a valid letter combo.


PurpleSubtlePlan

Probably not the place to casually mention I got today's in two.


thistown_onthecorner

Haha. Me too. I think most people who use the certain start word ( that is a giveaway to todays word) will get it in two


PurpleSubtlePlan

I'm pretty sure the correct word is the only possible answer given that starting word


Elucidate137

You mean if people use >!adieu!<


PurpleSubtlePlan

Nope


thistown_onthecorner

Yes!


PurpleSubtlePlan

Mine was something else


callsignomega

Amazing. What were your guesses?


JimmyJuniorsBuns

So did my dad 🙄


Matt4669

Today’s wordle


callsignomega

True


melonlollicholypop

Today's was the first one I though I might not solve. I got it, but I was grasping at straws.


callsignomega

It was a weird one, for sure.


BelieveInRollins

Today’s was pretty tough


SentimentalDebris

Vivid has so far been the only one I had to sit on most of the day, because there were so few letters left and nothing made sense. Got it on six but I had all my non-wordle coworkers baffled at/with me


gohomepat

Epoxy A word I’m sure I had never said in my life up to that point.


callsignomega

Come on. Epoxy is a word everyone uses in their daily lives like Hey Darling would you like more epoxy after dinner?


MortarChelle

Vivid was the first that came to mind when I read your first sentence.


NoobOnTheRoad

VIVID was fine for me I did Ideas Timid Vivid Guess I just got lucky with Timid


reesmeister

I quit playing after I missed FOYER.


mrspremise

The french wordle today was brutal for me Le Mot (@WordleFR) #140 💀/6 ⬛🟩🟩⬛⬛ ⬛🟩🟩⬛🟩 ⬛🟩🟩⬛🟩 ⬛🟩🟩⬛🟩 ⬛🟩🟩⬛🟩 ⬛🟩🟩⬛🟩 The word was >!ORALE!<


Songwritersf

FWIW American Wordle excepts some French words.


eea81

Sissy and tiara


callsignomega

I think I got Tiara because I remembered the word from Harry Potter.


ElWanderer_KSP

I would insert The Big Bang Theory "Oh, it's a tiara!" gif here, if Reddit would let me!


falcon_from_bombay

Outdo 🙄


callsignomega

They really outdid themselves there


bleerghbleergh

As someone who doesn’t normally use American English I’d have to say FAVOR. It’s a six letter word damnit with a U.


Pianostar4

NYMPH


callsignomega

No vowels. That's hard


reecpc

HOMER. I actually quit doing this every day because of that one.


CakeDayOrDeath

The one from today was very stressful!


Misterbreadcrum

Todays was pretty stupid, but nothing will ever beat WATCH.


logatwork

Homer. That’s not even a word.


callsignomega

I read it in Monica Geller's voice


tu-BROOKE-ulosis

Those of us baseball fans say it on the regular.


fivezero_ca

For the sports fan: "The ref's a homer!"


Individual_Bus6681

I wasn't thinking and I got MONEY wrong


thistown_onthecorner

My only loss was the day there were two word of the day possibilities depending on whether a player regularly refreshed their Wordle or not. I figured there was NO WAY they would use such a politically charged word. Yeah, I did not get the “shine” word for the day. I got the other word. I was so mad


shimmerangels

i got vivid in 2 😎 it was 100% luck and when i was guessing it i was like "this is a waste of a guess" lmao


callsignomega

I just remember being mad after getting it on the sixth try


u_cant_drown_n_sweat

PUPPY was the one that took me a while to figure out. Also the ones that end in IGHT or ATCH since there are so many possibilities.


fivezero_ca

DANDY (playing the archives). I got the -ANDY part pretty fast, but then went through CANDY, SANDY, HANDY…argh. I think that's the only one I've missed so far (but I am a newer player). Edit: No, wait, there was one I missed last week, but it was down to me being very tired and I kept making dumb mistakes. Haha. "Do not operate heavy machinery or play Wordle…"


skypotato98

french wordle and it was SEXES


callsignomega

Wow. That's difficult


Nanny_Ogg1000

"Wryly" on a wordle clone.


junebug_skipping

My only fail in 135 games was CATER. Had the last 4 letters after the 2nd guess, tried WATER, LATER, RATER, HATER. Ugh.


Shaniac_C

Today.


Lcsd114

VIVID because it’s the only one I’ve missed.


JimmyJuniorsBuns

Idk why but I had so much trouble the other day with ALBUM. I was so mad at myself


peace_97

Vivid was the only puzzle I solved with a friend. We got it on the fifth try, but it was all thanks to them. I would not have gotten that one on my own. I struggled with gamer, forgo and comma. Generally, any _A_ER and _OUND word is bad form. NYT stop playing dirty 😪


ZombieJockeyGames

In the Malay version, KAKAK


FistofanAngryGoddess

Vivid and Homer were the most irritating for me.


[deleted]

[удалено]


FistofanAngryGoddess

You know a lot of subs are automatically deleting your comments?


madeleineruth19

I’m still mad about CAULK tbh. I know now that it is an actual word and it describes some kind of tiling thing or whatever. But I still feel like it’s not a word that most people would have heard of. Felt so unfair.


norcaltiger21

It's a very well known word


michigan_matt

Really? I feel like I've known about caulk since I was like 5 or 6 years old, and also assumed that pretty much every household uses it at least once or twice a year to fill in a gap in something like a shower or sink.


LamborghiniBottle

The trolls below acting as if its a common word 😭


trickman01

Super common word.


Fulltime_panda

Homer, because not a word. It's a character. Or yesterday's.


languid-libra

I missed yesterday's 😭 what was it?


GrouchyCress8269

Homer is a home run in baseball.


mitchdwx

I hated PLEAT because I had no idea that was even a word.


Mental_Act4662

For sure VIVID. GLASS Also threw me for a loop.


nanotyrannical

I was high and got that one in 2 bruh, I hit enter and started kicking myself before they turned green. Most insane thing I’ve ever done


optional_wax

FEWER -- my fist sixer (followed by FOYER and GAMER).


jdaster64

"GAMER" from recently was my first ever 6/6 (been playing since #200), and it was 1 of 3 remaining options at the time so I got lucky even then. Even as someone that tries not to fall into the trap of keeping greens in every guess, ?A?ER and ?O?ER are horrible patterns because there are so many (varied) possible words that match, and it's somewhat arbitrary what is and is not in the answer list. I played a few archives early on and lost on PAPER for a similar reason, on top of it having a double-letter.


Justin113113

Caulk. Never ever heard of it.


fivezero_ca

Obviously you never played The Oregon Trail. :)


Justin113113

Nope :)


UnknownRager96

ALLOW, was my only fail. Bonus: Doing a wordle unlimited and getting XHTML as a word somehow


callsignomega

Whaaatt?


cate_emily

Proxy!


orza6006

LOWLY has been my only 6 so far. That was rough, I only got the O from my first 2 guesses and words ending in Y usually have a bunch of alternative possibilities. If I hadn't had a yellow L in the third spot I probably would've guessed LOLLY and lost FOYER, ZESTY and LARVA also had me sweating a bit


NinjaClashReddit

I got todays in 3, but I think the hardest one thus far was watch


Shagyam

Banal. it was like my third wordle and the only one I missed.


Lukun7

The only daily i ever failed was HOMER because I didn't know it was a solution. SALET DIVER COWER GONER BOXER JOKER Fail...


Eazyyy

Found is the only one that I failed. Because it has so many first letter options. Sound, pound, wound, round, hound, mound, bound…


Available_Contest_28

LONER-STAID-CHUMP normally give me a solid 4-try win. Today's sucked, but I finally got it.


JMRooDukes808

PROXY - really just never thought x and y would be used in the same word


LamborghiniBottle

Waiting for Xylem to be the word


NJM1112

Mammy, sissy & tacit


vantablacc

cynic was particularly hard but the worst for me was favor, it's the only one i failed because i'm english and didn't consider american spellings


Aggravating-Mix-4903

The one today was not a common word at all. (Sunday night) I just threw it up there and it was correct but it was a lucky guess.


[deleted]

I hate the ones that come down to one letter and there are 8 ish possibilities


Professor108

Kabob


mairaia

Epoxy got me, because I had never in my life heard that word.


[deleted]

OXIDE & EPOXY


CuriousHedgehog636

I really struggled with LARVA. I remember just spamming so many words as I couldn't think of any word that fit in with the pattern I had (I can't remember what the pattern was now). I didn't clock it was a word - Lava or larvae yes, but not larva.


KeyUniversity2554

RUPEE because I thought of it early, but thought, "Nah". Got it on about 5 or 6.


Golftango6

HOMER was the one that got me most frustrated. Really feel that shouldn’t be a word. I saw a lot of complaints about RUPEE but I got that in 3.


AnvilOfMisanthropy

I can't specifically remember, but it's almost certainly the one that broke my last streak. :/ I'm quick to bail on hard mode as soon as I recognize the roulette situation though, which gives me longer streaks, but kinda cheapens them.

nosnaheislehc

tilde is used in english. it's this: ~


Double-Duck-2605

Thank you!


TrustYourTingle

I’m still annoyed that my one loss, “HARRY”, was so controversial that they removed it and replaced it, and yet didn’t reset the win streak for anyone who lost on the original word. To this date it’s the only loss I’ve ever had and I’m still bitter about it


nosnaheislehc

a recent one probably like allot? (i think?) or bayou. never heard of those words also rupee because that word never crossed my mind and i had all the letters and just tried all combinations until it accepted it🤣


realjanitor

all of them. this game is for pussies
