    Let's just say this is my first attempt!! No judgement please!

    For all those wondering....Wordle is web-based puzzle that requires players to guess a valid five-letter word in six tries or less. After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word.

    Everyone gets a word daily and after 24 hours, the word changes!

    My family used to play a version of this game during long road trips. My father called it "Jotto". Kids got to use paper and pen to write down their guesses but the adults had to keep everything in memory. One person thinks of a 5-letter word (no duplicated letters) and then one or more others make guesses. But the only information you get about your guess is the number of letters in your guess word that are also in the target word. Perhaps for this reason, there's no limit to the number of guesses in jotto. Wordle's ability to indicate both occurrence and location of each guessed letter (like mastermind) means you should be able to find the target word within 6 tries, since there are only 26 letters in the alphabet. The fact you can have duplicate letters complicates this, though.
    Our average number of guesses playing jotto was something like 8 for the adults and 14 for the kids.
    If you could play the game without paper you felt like you'd really accomplished something! :)

    That sounds awesome. I would have never thought of doing something like that on a road trip, but I'd be eager to play. I've always loved word games, especially Boggle. Wordle is such a funny thing to me. It's like this game that seems like it should have always existed, like Mine Sweeper, but here we are and it's the first official fad of 2022.
