Everyone who plays Wordle thinks they’re good at Wordle. Particularly people who post their results on their social media feeds every single day. (We’re not judging. OK, maybe we’re judging a little bit.)
But now The New York Times has unleashed hell upon the Wordle populace. It’s built a WordleBot, an online tool that checks your Wordle results and judges your skills — or lack of skills.
It judges based on three categories: Skill, Luck and Steps.
Skill attempts to figure out if you minimized the expected amount of turns required to make the correct guess. Luck asks the question: “Did your choices eliminate more solutions than expected?” Steps is fairly self explanatory: How many guesses did you take?
Using the WordleBot is pretty straightforward. You do today’s Wordle, then head straight to this link. The site does the rest. You can also upload a screen cap of your Wordle and it can analyze things that way.
Here’s my score for today’s Wordle:
Not bad? I guess. I suck at Wordle though.
Now you go!
