I tried hard to have it be anything but you-know-what! :laughing: Should have gone with it on row 3, to keep my Guess Distribution looking healthier…oh well.

Got it in four. I had all the right letters after three, and thought, “Seriously? Now they’re just messing with us”.

Or how “Angry Birds” became a sensation despite being a copy of the earlier “Crush the Castle”. Or “Minecraft” vs. “Infiniminer”. The first version of something is not always the most successful.

And let’s not forget that Hydrox came before Oreo.

Do we need a “Wordle brags” thread?

true, but i don’t think that’s totally comparable to the scrabble situation. scrabble was an extremely successful board game, and continues to be. Ive never heard of crush the castle or infiminer. But what do I know, maybe young kids don’t know what scrabble is now. ha. Heck i bet words with friends is even dying out. I certainly never hear anyone talk about it anymore.

I had all the right letters on the second line, just not in the right order.
