Wordle 548 2/6

⬜⬜🟩🟩🟩 CRATE

Wordlebot was quick to point out that SLATE was a lucky guess since there were still nine possible solutions, but I noticed it didn't mention anything about its own good luck.

and there appears to be several of us. Lots got the Stale then Slate combo. RAISE starter works for me as it's a good mix of common consonants and vowels.

All skill, of course.

Another reason for me to appreciate my change of starter word, from CRANE to SLATE, a few weeks ago.

Edit: I considered joking today that I finally decided to use a different starter word instead of SLATE.

But I've had the best two weeks at this game for me, ever!

One 1 (today, obviously)
Twelve 3's
One 4

That's 15 "under par" for the last 14 games!

Now that I've jinxed myself, I'll probably get a 5 or 6 tomorrow.

A lot of people have been starting with slate.

I had to start with an H, because I always use
the spelling bee letter.

It took me four tries.

Used "taken" to check for slate and slake; would have liked to also check for slave: can anyone think of a 5 letter word containing T, K, V? Tyvek was all I could think of, but product name. Others?

In your case, checking for K and T was sufficient. If neither letter was a match, then solve with the V.
