Wordle

We've all played the viral game Wordle, right?
If not, here are the basic rules

Guess the Wordle in 6 tries.
Each guess must be a valid 5 letter word.
After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word.

Examples:
BEARS
The B was in the right place
CHILL
The I is in the word, but not the right spot
HOUSE
The letter S is not in the word


A letter being used in the word more than once is possible and follows some janky rules but here is a reddit post that kinda explains it.

Every day I will take a random guess from this topic and use that as the clue. I will post that word with the letters highlighted into this topic and in my signature. If no guesses are made I will pick a random 5 letter word to be used as the clue.
The first person to guess the word correctly wins. I will also award them points based on how many clues were given (6 points minus 1 point for each clue)
I recommend you only make one guess per day, but if you want to make multiple anyways, I will pick one of your guesses randomly to be your official guess. (If you guess the correct word and an incorrect word, there is a chance I will randomly pick the incorrect one and you won't win!)

I will also accept guesses from Post ID 32768 for a limited time. Make sure to include the word "Wordle" in your post so I can find it. This has been retired.

Re: Wordle

Guess: ASHER


"Enemy" can be a strong term. Sometimes it is more sporting to say "adversary" or "the other team". Sometimes, you should invite your adversary over for cake & lemonade. This can prevent some grief later on. However, if you are on Team Squirrel & your adversary is on Team Hawk, this is not a good idea.

Hello, I'm a vowelless neither transparent nor translucent mammal of the genus Neogale. hmm

I made the first BMP encoder, which of course has its decoder. And then improved on them (encoder and decoder). I've made a game in powerpoint, that for some reason nobody else can play. And there's also the button that speaks math. Here are two baba is you levels that I made and really like. Also, I like quines. If you're wondering why my signature is green, see this. Also, if you're wondering why there is no time between the bottom right and the top left buttons, look at this, where I've drawn lines that I had no intention of filling.

First I pick a random TBGer that made a guess. Then if that person made multiple guesses I pick a random one of their words.
If you are wondering how I pick randomly, I use random.org.
