  1. Opposite Objective: In Don’t Wordle, the objective is reversed compared to traditional word guessing games. Instead of trying to guess the hidden word, players aim to avoid stumbling upon it within six attempts.

  2. Preservation of Correct Placements: Once a letter is correctly guessed and placed, subsequent guesses must maintain that letter in the same position. This rule adds complexity and strategic depth to the game, requiring players to carefully consider each guess.

  3. Relocation of Incorrect Placements: If a letter is correctly guessed but in the wrong position, subsequent guesses must relocate that letter. This rule challenges players to shuffle their guesses effectively while keeping track of previous feedback.

  4. Elimination of Guessed Letters: Once a letter is guessed and ruled out, it cannot be used again. This rule encourages players to deduce the correct word by process of elimination, narrowing down the possibilities with each guess.

  5. Limited Attempts and UNDO Function: Players have six attempts to guess the word correctly. If they find themselves running low on guesses, they can utilize the UNDO function to rectify mistakes and refine their strategy.

A Don’t Wordle Game Example

A game example goes as follows:

Don't Wordle Game Example

  1. Initially, I pressed the “Random Starting Word” button and obtained a random starting word, which was “AUGUE”. All the letters were highlighted with gray backgrounds, indicating they were not part of the solution word. Consequently, I couldn’t use the letters A, U, G, or E in my subsequent guesses. At this point, the game indicated there were still 3602 words left to guess.

  2. Then, I guessed the word “CLOYS”. Similarly, none of the letters were part of the solution word. Thus, I couldn’t use the letters C, L, O, Y, or S in my future guesses either. The game now showed there were 270 words remaining to guess.

  3. By now, I hadn’t guessed any clues about the letters included in the solution. So, I proceeded to guess the word “FIXED”. The game highlighted the last two letters, E and D, with green backgrounds, indicating that I guessed E and D correctly, and they were in the right positions. This meant I had guessed two letters correctly at once, and my next guess had to be a word with E and D in the last two positions. At this point, the game indicated there were only 21 words left to guess.

  4. Next, I guessed the word “HEWED”. The game informed me that the solution word still included the letter E, but not the letters H or W. Therefore, in the next guess, I could only place the letter E in the first or third position of the word. Now, the game showed there were only 4 words left to guess.

  5. I chose to place the letter E in the first position and guessed the word “ENDED”. Unfortunately, the first letter of the solution word turned out to be E, and it was apparent that there were only 2 words left to guess. I was likely to lose the game.

  6. I guessed the word “EBBED”. Fortunately, I didn’t guess the solution word, and I emerged victorious in the game. The solution for this game is “EMBED”.

Mastering the rules of Don’t Wordle requires a combination of logical thinking, deduction, and adaptability.
