A Gnome's Ponderings

I'm a gamer. I love me some games and I like to ramble about games and gaming. So, more than anything else, this blog is a place for me to keep track of my ramblings. If anyone finds this helpful or even (good heavens) insightful, so much the better.

Enough of my family is playing Wordle that I’ve ended up playing it too.

If your family hasn’t convinced you to try Wordle, it’s Mastermind with letters. It’s basically Jotto except that it has a computer moderator and…

Uh, is there any other differences between Wordle and this 64-year-old word game? I mean, beyond the fact that Wordle is online and for one player.

To be honest, I’ve long thought that Jotto had gotten unfairly ignored. What it lacks in flashy chrome, it makes up with rock solid mechanics.

So, I basically think Wordle didn’t reinvent a wheel built in 1956 that rolls perfectly well.
