Yes, for about a week now. Mostly 4 and an occasional 3. Haven't managed a 2 yet. --Bob

Played yesterday for the first time. When I was trying to find the "real" one, I downloaded an app that does the same thing.

Today's word on the app was FJORD. I got it in 2. Completely lucky guess after only having the "R" on the first guess.

If you can, catch the opening segment of last night's Saturday Night Live. Donald Trump (played perfectly by cast newcomer James Austin Johnson) plays his version of Wordle as a guest on Laura Ingraham's show. For those who don't want to see the entire clip, the Trump segment begins at 6:15:
