Wordle (https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/) has recently become a well-known word guessing game. The rules are simple:
… a five-letter word is chosen that players aim to guess within six tries. After each guess, the letters are either marked as green, yellow, or gray; green means that the letter is correct and in the correct position, yellow means that the letter is in the answer but not in the right position, and gray means the letter is not in the answer at all
Users can post their daily game progress as an emoji block graphic on social media channels like this:
🟩 = correct letter, correct position
🟨 = correct letter, wrong position
⬜ = wrong letter
My questions to you:
How many valid Wordle images are there? Take into consideration the respective meaning of the color code, and that a game ends either with a correct guess (🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩) or after six incorrect guesses.
If every Twitter user (assumed 330 million) posts one Wordle image per day, how long does it take at least until every image has been posted once?
Default difficulty, 'Hard Mode' turned off. You can guess anything at anytime. (Hard Mode would mean that any revealed hints must be used in subsequent guesses).
Word lists do not need to be considered.
