Huh, I thought this would be undoable or at least not fun, but

8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown is very watchable, that’s where I learned the Countdown math game.

Been playing Quordle https://www.quordle.com/
and Spanish Wordle https://wordle.danielfrg.com/
ETA: A friend’s kid is playing Latin wordle in class, which I found impressive.

I’ve only played a few games of Nerdle, but find it a slightly more satisfying than Wordle.

Are right hand side equations like Rob’s done common in the game? I find that solving placement of the equals sign is crucial to winning the game, and having a few more possibilities would really screw up my strategy.

Oooh, now I want one for balancing chemical equations…

The rules say the solution will only have a number on the RHS, but apparently it’s still a legal guess. Maybe guessing that way can be a helpful way to get more information, like when people guess obscure words that would never be a Wordle answer, but incorporate a bunch of unique letters you don’t have clues for yet?

I actually managed to get an Old Norse Wordle right on 5/6. It’s the only time I tried, though, and I’m happy to retire on a 100% success rate.

My nerdle start equation is

1+4x6=25

It gives you 5 numbers and 3 operators in one go

bet rachel riley all over that

If you like math games where you have to build equations, try Square Off.

Thanks for that.
I’ve been enjoying this since @Scurra posted about it a couple days ago.

OMG. This one is hard because I wasn’t sure how to proceed?
