This has become my favourite Wordle variant. It’s definitely one for power players.
You are told how many green and yellow letters you’ve guessed, but not which letters they are. Getting to the solution requires an intriguing mix of logic and word guessing.

And here’s the puzzle, the final colours are added in once it’s solved.

My sons top tip. Words that contain a mix of common and uncommon letters help push you towards the likely greens and yellows.

Sounds like a good tip.

I'm adopting my wordle consonant-eliminating strategy next, which is three words of all different letters with one vowel in each word. (4 words in this example)

A bit like this - Now I have all the letters just have to figure out which ones 🤣

I think re-using letters on this and wordle makes it harder. Just my opinny onion.

The daily didn’t refresh for me so here’s a practice one with my colours first.

I went prion on guess two as I knew the R was red and it left 4 letters in play. I banked on the O as being yellow first off, and chose three words without common letters and each had 1 yellow letter. It’s unlikely that the answer starts or ends in O so I made it red. Modem was chosen to keep the number of letters in play down also. Looking at the remaining letters I to choose from and working on the assumption that the answer had 1 letter each from guess 2,3 and 4. P, E and L seemed most likely yellows. Spiel was a bad guess as I couldn’t have a P and an I but it did make the answer obvious.

Here’s the actual colours after solving.

Hope that logic makes sense.
