More hacking on automating Wordle

Methodology

The word “bases” was guessed with a starting word of “caves” and made five other guesses before coming to an eventual answer. This obviously would have failed if I used it against Wordle.

The worst words

Is there a guaranteed winner?

“Obese” has a word score of 277.8 and “pseud” is 281.6.

Could we find a most-likely?

From January 30th’s Wordle: “estop” showed that despite failing the first two guesses, the algorithm did it in four tries whereas “verso” had to make an extra guess.
