That’s right! I’m jumping on the bandwagon! I believe my blogs should be part of your morning routine. Alas, only weekly, but there’re plenty to pick from if you’d like to make Blogdle-ing a daily event.
I am an original UK Wordler (six tries, one word), a NYT Wordler (six tries, one word), a Nerdler (six tries, one math problem), a Worldler (six tries, one country), a Quordler (eight tries, four words), and an Octordler (thirteen tries, eight words)!
Yes, I play each daily. No, I do not share my results.
I have dabbled with Lewdle (six tries, one naughty word), but that game doesn’t seem as good for my brain, lol.
I’ve also tried Heardle, a music guessing game (six tries, max out at 16 seconds). You begin with one second of song! That is not enough. It might be enough if it was part of the actual, you know, song–but I have been thwarted on several tries because I swear, the ‘clues’ begin when the needle drops. It frustrates me! I grew up with edited radio play length. And, this is not Name that Tune where you get a clue, it’s just literally the first sixteen seconds of the song. Of course, I just played and I guessed today’s song correctly with only one skip. So, yeah, now I’ll be back tomorrow.
UPDATE: I just discovered a NEW ‘dle! Antiwordle–as many chances as you can succeed in NOT guessing the one word! There are rules, though. My first try was 6. I think that’s impressive?
It may seem silly, or obsessive, or maybe a waste of time…but I have to say, I feel smarter when I play these mind challenging games. My geography skills are getting pretty sharp. There do seem to be a lot of obscure countries that I’ve never heard of, but I’m getting more confident with my starting points (first guesses) and where they are in relation to other places I kind of know. The math game always seems impossible, until I get it correct. Often in three or four attempts. As a word-nerd, I LOVE the Wordle, Quordle, and Octordle games! And despite the fact that I do not post my results daily, I proudly could.
It’s amazing how quickly I can get through my morning routine of mental matches. So again, if it’s the same with you, I humbly offer my Monday blogs to extend your brain-game time. My posts may not be puzzling, but I hope they entertain and possibly get you thinking.
Let’s make Blogdle-ing the next big thing!
