    I got it in 6, and I truly don't consider it to be a word.

    Yes indeed, the first one I didn't get in months. Ann's generally better at it than I am, and she took six tries.

    Yup. Missed and broke a long streak.

    Wife had all but the middle letter in 3 tries, and still blew it with three more words that seemed more likely.

    .
    The official New York Times Wordle Bot required all six guesses to solve today's Wordle. I have never seen the Bot take that many guesses to solve. Neither my sister or I solved it today. I had it down to two remaining possible solutions for my sixth choice and (of course) I selected the wrong word.

    Six. I got to a point where I was having a hard time even coming up with a guess.

    I got it in 4. Had the first 4 letters on the 3rd guess.

    Too right. Crummy word. I hate the ones where you have random guesses on one letter.

    I failed. The 3 h.s. friends I share scores & commentary with all got it in 6.

    I've had several times in the past gotten messages from the bot, "Nice vocabulary, but not one of the approved words". This word was even more obscure than those which inspired that message. Oh well, all streaks eventually end.

    Five. Managed to get the first four letters on three, then it was blind luck.

    The middle letter got me. I had four words with everything else correct apart from that little b'stard, and ran out of runway.

    Five. I've seen that word a number of times. It's just not that obscure.

    I am the one who failed but not ashamed about it
    Next time I will just use word finder https://word-finder.com/words-that-start-with/m/ and will definitely make it.

    Four. Could have been three, but a word I never use.

    I got it in 4 as well, thanks to the hint for the starting word, WszystekPoTrochu.

    What's going on? I do the NY Times Wordle every morning, yet obviously have a different word from everybody here. I got this one in four.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    For those of us who don't play this thing, but have been watching our friends mourn their loss, could someone tell me what the word was, please?

    Thanks.

    parer

    As in... 'What sort of kitchen knife am I holding? It's a parer'.

    Not an archaic or arcane word. But outside the game norm in that the 2,000+ 'approved' words don't tend to be plurals of words, or variations on core words (like 'pare'). Enough of an oddity that the NYT 'bot' that you can use to help analyze your play - after the fact - says that the average of all players was over 6. Most people were not able to solve it. Because, I'd speculate, of that oddity.

    Too many choices. Had to get that middle letter early in the game.

    My mother always called it a "paring knife". Sort of alloneword = paringknife. Once she started using French knives she stopped paring. Too easy to score the thumb pad.

    Blew it here too, breaking a decent run.

    I would think one might want to be wary of one who thinks of "parer" before some of the other choices like "paper" or "pager". BTW, my spell check here doesn't like my use of "parer" here.

    I blew my streak of 99 a few weeks ago so I wasn’t too upset at missing this one.

    That was my problem. My second word was pager, and it was all downhill from there.
