    We just started doing this together at work every morning . . . literally two days ago. There are four of us in the office. So far, we've won in the same order. But for some reason my end board looks very different than everyone else's? They seem to think the same? And I'm more random. But it's such a fun, quick game to share together.

    I am a huge Wordle fan. Simple and yet so fun. Despite having a subscription to the NYT, I have to admit that I am more than a little sad they bought. I hope they don't ruin it!

    Do you play Wordle? YES
    Do you play in easy or hard mode? hard
    Do you always use the same first word or is it random? I normally use RAISE as my first word.
    Do you have a strategy? Go for the most common words first as my guesses.
    Do you enjoy playing? LOVE it.

    Do you play Wordle? Yes, I do daily.
    Do you play in easy or hard mode? I didn't know there were different modes.
    Do you always use the same first word or is it random? I use various words using subsets of RSTLN along with 2 vowels.
    Do you have a strategy? I look for word patterns - what letters combine with other letters especially consonant combos. And don't forget that Y can be a vowel.
    Do you enjoy playing? Absolutely!

    I don't play. I've seen friends posting their Wordle images on Facebook. It doesn't bother me at all. I just keep on scrolling. LOL

    I'm going to stick with my coloring app for right now.

    Not the official one no but I have downloaded a very similar game on my iphone from the app store as hubby was getting all competitive with me! Although every time I try and play my little people distract me and I lose my train of thought far too fast for it to be enjoyable!!!

    Do you play Wordle?
    My sister introduced me to Nerdle and Wordle today so yes I’ve played my first day now.

    Do you play in easy or hard mode?
    I didn’t know there was a choice so I played the default which I’m guessing is easy.

    Do you always use the same first word or is it random?
    I used weird today.

    Do you have a strategy?
    My sister mentioned using two vowels to start so that’s why I chose weird. I also try to start with RSTLNE (thank you Wheel of Fortune).

    Do you enjoy playing?
    Yes.

    Do you play Wordle? Yes. It's one of a handful of games I play daily. I usually start with those in the NYT.
    Do you play in easy or hard mode? I actually didn't realize there were different modes, so I guess I'm playing easy ;)
    Do you always use the same first word or is it random? I have a few words I start with, all with commonly used letters.
    Do you have a strategy? Yes
    Do you enjoy playing? Yes

    Do you play Wordle? Yep, sure do!

    Do you play in easy or hard mode? Easy mostly

    Do you always use the same first word or is it random? It's random, but I try to include as many vowels and combinations of RSTNL as I can

    Do you have a strategy? Not really

    Do you enjoy playing? Yes! I like that I can only play once a day so it's not something that I get sucked in to or hours.

    Do you play Wordle? Yes. I only discovered the game a few weeks ago (always late to the party!...), and I am now thoroughly hooked!

    Do you play in easy or hard mode? Well, I've been playing in easy mode (because I didn't even know there was a hard mode!), but I now want to try the hard mode...

    Do you always use the same first word or is it random? I don't always use the same first word, but neither is my first choice completely random: I have a go-to list of 6 first words, which involves either knocking out the vowels, or else going for the most common combinations of consonants and vowels.

    Do you have a strategy? Yes.

    Do you enjoy playing? Yes! It's become a part of my morning routine: make the coffee; feed the dog; do the wordle.

    I actually did a page about my newfound obsession with Wordle:

    I saw my daughter was playing it though and new what it was because of social media.
    I dare not get hooked on to something else - she got me started on Township 5 years ago and I am still playing.

    I play - and I love word games! I have a few words that I start with... but they do change over time. I enjoy it, and had to find an app that mimicked the game, but I could play over and over, lol!

    I've had a quick play but to be honest I'm pretty useless at it

    Do you play Wordle? Yes!
    Do you play in easy or hard mode? Easy
    Do you always use the same first word or is it random? I rotate between HOTEL, GRAND, and FORCE
    Do you have a strategy? I will sometimes use a 2nd completely different word after the first to collect more data on 10 different letters rather than trying to make words right away with the yellow / greens of the first hit (unless I'm really REALLY close)
    Do you enjoy playing? Yes! But I don't go posting my scores on social media :giggle

    Do you play Wordle? I have a Facebook friend who posts her results from Wordle and Nerdle every day. She tried Quordle and didn't care for it. I don't care for Wordle or Nerdle, but I lover Quordle and play it every day that I remember.

    Do you play in easy or hard mode? Whatever the default mode is. I didn't know it was adjustable.

    Do you always use the same first word or is it random? Random.

    Do you have a strategy? I just try to use as many letters as I can, which is probably why Quordle works better for me than Wordle. LOL

    Do you enjoy playing? I still play it right after I finish the Quordle board, so I must enjoy it, but I only get the correct word about half the time and sometimes I just throw out words to get it to the end, to see what the word actually is. (And those times they are words I know, but would not have considered trying, so I am glad that I gave up early. But it takes some of the fun out when I'm just making up words to see get to the solution.)
