I’ve just issued myself a WittyCulus Wordle Challenge for Wordle 2!

Gonna start guessing using the answer of the very first game; and the solution to the current puzzle will seed the next…

Until I reach the 210th game, which will mean I’m all caught up with playing past Wordle games.

Number of guesses*: X (failed to complete in 6!)

*in WittyCulus Challenge Mode

Progression of clues:

## Step-by-Step Replay of Wordle 2 Puzzle

Guess #1

In goes REBUT, the answer to Wordle puzzle #1.

Guess #2

Out comes… nothing! Lol. Did I just waste 1 try? Onward with the challenge, that’s the WittyCulus spirit, man 🙂 Let’s go with VALID to test vowels.

Guess #3

Looking like O has gotta be in there. I’m thinking SPOIL, but L has already been discarded. ONION should be unlikely — that’s 2 pairs of same letters! How about COINS?

Guess #4

Nothing too obvious yet, except that I is highly unlikely at the back! (Not overthinking this, actually.) I see it could be FISHY 🙂

Guess #5

Aw, that ain’t it! WISPY then.

Guess #6

Still not it? We are down to KISSY, MISSY, SISSY at this last move. Wish me luck with MISSY, pretty please.

Epic fail!

I’m shocked that the answer to Wordle 2 is SISSY, with three S’s!

Darn, I wasn’t testing for letters properly after guess #4 — fast elimination is key to solving Wordle sooner; and I actually knew that!

So, I ran out of tries 🙁

And that is the shortest ever win streak in Wordle history, namely 1GAME. Sad, yet a bit amused at the outcome. (Is there an emoji for that?)

Still, my personal Wordle challenge will go on as planned — Wordle 3 shall begin with SISSY lol.
