OK. Here it is. Inspired by playing lots of Wordle, I built a word game. It is called Stupid. You can play it at stupidwordgame.com – I’ll write more about it soon. Official launch May 2nd. All stats start over then. Any problems please let me know.

@cdevroe I'm 1 for 1 in 1 guess! Do I quit while ahead? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

@jean Excellent! It has been fun to play every day with friends and family. We play both Wordle and Stupid. :)

@cdevroe I doubt that, you're the one who created the game.

@colinwalker OK OK but we can both agree you're better looking.

@cdevroe 1/1. This isn’t that stupid. Anyway, it’s a satisfying blip of time to waste.

@odd I do hope it trips you up from time-to-time. But, most of all, I hope you have a moment of enjoyment.

@cdevroe This looks like a fun little game, thanks for putting it together πŸ˜› I'll admit I was a bit confused when I started, not realising I only got two backspaces, so I put in a suboptimal guess and then the game gave up and showed me the answer after my second wrong guess πŸ˜‚ Perhaps it'd be good if the rules appeared prominently the first time you load the app? (Also, I didn't realise I only got two guesses even after reading the rules!) Otherwise though, good work πŸ‘

@cdevroe Hhmm πŸ€”I think that I am stupid. I’m not sure what happened there? Now that I have read the instructions πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ, I’ll try again tomorrow.

@cdevroe In landscape on iPad the letter array vanishes when the keyboard appears - adds an extra level of danger/stupidity. Agree with others the rules should be clearer - only two attempts when there were over twenty possible solutions today πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

@cdevroe Out of habit, I did a Select All and backspace. It wiped everything out, marking it as one backspace. And then I got stuck as it did not reset. I thought I must have messed up something. I learnt from that mistake and got it right today.

@cdevroe I stopped doing Wordle several weeks ago. I think this might hold my attention rather longer. Thanks, and well done. I’m on a streak of 0 out of 2 so far!

@artkavanagh Oh no! Today’s was hard. I failed also. Will post score soon!

@amit That’s a great tip. Must disable select all!!

@cdevroe I was standing outside and it was a sunny day. That helped. Me not reading anything and pressing random keys. That helped.β˜€οΈπŸ€
