Occurred to me that given modern use of language/text speak etc, along with the nature of the game, wouldn't wordl (five letters) have been a better name for this?

Even my hospital, launching their "mycare" service so you can access loads online, used the tagline, "...are you RDE?" (<<<see what they did, ready, geddit?)

Royal Devon and Exeter in the real world.

If the NYT want to use the new name (Β©MikeO)Β I'll settle for a smallish seven figure sum.

In playing Worldle, it's shocking to me how little Americans know about world geography. Even my small group of friends, who are all very smart people, struggle when it comes to basic geography

Possibly worse over there, but not exclusively an American thing I don't think.

We had a huge atlas at home when I was a kid and I literally used to spend hours looking at it, found it absolutely fascinating....also had a globe. Took me two guesses again today, although it rejected my first attempt at the right answer because I wrote it in English.

Whoops also just realized I gave away the ending SORRY ANYONE WHO WANTED TO PLAY πŸ™ˆ

Just totted it up and I reckon I've spent very nearly a year there in total over the last eighteen, so wasn't very challenging:D

Loads of people will struggle with worldle today I reckon; I've not only been there 8/9 times but also flew over it (and took a photo) on my way elsewhere in 2015...

I'll be honest and say I had never heard of this place before... but Americans don't know geography, so I get a pass.Β

Not the same island obviously but in the same group, do people from NJ not know where the J comes from?

Not been to J but G is stunningly beautiful! Also the islands were the only part of the British territory (they're self governing crown dependecies to be exact and not part of the United Kingdom) to be occupied by the nazis in WW2; a lot of the defences they built have been preserved, fascinating to explore.

I had heard of Guernsey, but had absolutely no idea where/what it was. Fascinated to see how close Guernsey and Jersey are to France!

The third biggest island, Alderney, had a German labour camp on it it WW2...not been there myself.

There are a lot of French place/street names on the islands but I've never heard French being spoken there. @FairWooney is the expert, he's a native.

Been to J, my brother lived there for 4 years. In the 80s it was a dream of a place. Fort Regent….. what a place that was.Β

They picked somewhere I'd not been to today, isn't that against the rules?

Never heard of this one myself but found it with the help of Google maps and the Falkland Islands as a guide..

Nobody on the planet knows that place, or at least very few, using an uninhabited subantarctic volcanic island is just plain daft.

Heardle this was the first thing I though of, but wasn't an option.

But got it eventually...

French isn't widely spoken though maybe a few more people probably take French at school than in the UK due to it's vicinity and ease of getting there!

The old language in Guernsey was a local language called GuernΓ©siaisΒ which was a kind of Norman French language that dated back to when Guernsey was controlled by the Norman's.

We do indeed have a lot of French named roads!
