Wordle - Question for Players 

Do you have a go-to first word? I have been using AUDIO because it has 4 vowels. Curious about others' strategies.

Wordle - Question for Players 

Guessing randomly -- starting with a new word each day -- feels to me like playing the lottery every day (don't) and choosing different numbers rather than playing the same ones each day.

@scully I'm starting with steak - hits 4 of the most common letters on the first try. And as seen on the bird site today, steam is a good first guess too. Probably better actually as M is more common than K I think.

@scully
I never thought about it and just went with whatever I could come up with that had some rstlne letters. I also go with a completely different second guess sometimes even if I get a letter or two on the first one just this knock out more of the alphabet.

@scully I actively prefer not trying to optimize the first words too hard because to me it has the same vibe as reading a gaming magazine to find the hidden rooms in Mario.

I do try to pick good first words, but I think it's more fun to do it on the fly. To each their own for sure though, I just find it more fun to make each one fresh.
