So. Wordle. What’s your opening gambit?
I know people like to pop in ADIEU, thinking they’re smart, but I reckon that’s just too heavy on vowels. I like to spread the consonants and vowels across three goes. I don’t care whether I get the answer in two tries or six, just as long as I get it. So my first three shots, for a while, have been STAIN, CLOUD and PERKY. All the vowels, lots of common consonants. Solid start.
Now, here’s the thing. I got bored with those and I’ve just come up with DEATH, GLORY and MUSIC. Wow, I thought, what an iconic trio of opening Wordle shots. No repeats and lots of likely letters. Cool.
Can you come up with a more iconic trio?
