|Letter||Count||Repeats (in word)||1st Letter||2nd Letter||3rd Letter||4th Letter||5th Letter|
This gives me some basic info, but I thought it would also be good to what actual words include letters the most common, so here are the 10 words with no repeating letters that are most common:
Based on this, I thought I should come up with a strategy to always use
cares as my first word. I then re-raran the stats and looking at words that didn’t include those five litters AND didn’t include doubles, decided my second word would be
The Cares/Litho Strategy
If you use Cares as your first word and
litho.as the second, you are going to have at least one match with all but 65 words. I’ll also get perfect matches in a few thousand words (the most being in the fifth position)
I put my strategy to the test today with Wordle 206.
Wordle 206 4/6
I got 1 letter the first time and 1 the second but no positions. After finishing, I ran the numbers and see there are 520 words that include an
r, but not as the 3 letter and include an
i but not as the second. My guess of
ruins was designed to figure ou the positions of both of those words while also trying the unused letters of
u. Running some numbers,
briny would have been better to use here since I already knew the
s wasn’t going get me a winner. I was able to guess
ruins gave me the position for the
i and the
n and the
r was well placed.
Let’s see if my cares/litho strategy works going forward!
Today is my friend Matt’s birthday. He asked people to celebrate by writing, so I wrote this post. In the old school spirit of Webrings, here are 3 more friends who published something recently.
