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.
@jean Excellent! It has been fun to play every day with friends and family. We play both Wordle and Stupid. :)
@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 😛 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 😂 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 👍
@cdevroe Hhmm 🤔I think that I am stupid. I’m not sure what happened there? Now that I have read the instructions 🤦🏼♂️, 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 🤷♂️
@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!
@cdevroe I was standing outside and it was a sunny day. That helped. Me not reading anything and pressing random keys. That helped.☀️🍀
