An Informed First Wordle

  • Eliminating words has been the focus of other solutions
  • Considering the additional information gained from looking at the letters and their position could be useful
  • The closer a word matches the target, both in letters used and their position, the easier to get to the target
  • I wrote a script to calculate this ‘match distance’ for each pair of words
  • The word with the smallest total match distance to every other word was selected as the best
