Inspired by the new game of Wordle, I have created a new type of puzzle combining Wordle and Pictionary.

The left image represents a phrase of six five-letter words. Normal Wordle rules apply: Green squares indicate the correct letter in the correct position and Yellow squares indicate the correct letter in the wrong position (unless it is “counterfeited” by a duplicate letter in the same word). Obviously the six-word phrase does not necessarily represent proper strategy in an actual Wordle game and the player got extremely lucky with his or her final guess!

Example: If a player guesses EERIE and the correct word is STEAK then only the first ‘E’ is highlighted yellow. Of course, green squares can never be counterfeited.

The right image represents a visual hint for the six-word phrase (so think something like "rebus" or "Pictionary")

Your task is to identify the six-word phrase from the clues given

This puzzle is not intended to be difficult. I am hoping this will inspire more challenging puzzles on the same theme if other PSE folk like the concept 😊 enter image description here

This does not appear to be a good strategy at all.

WHITE
QUEEN
TAKES
BLACK
HORSE (knight)
CHECK

    $\begingroup$ Not a very good Wordle strategy for sure, but definitely the only way to win the chess game on the spot. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Bass not that either (replace the white knight with a bishop, and it should be). But improving the chess aspect would mean finishing on a 4-letter word $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @ChrisH I'm not sure what you are trying to say. Are you maybe missing the royal fork white has planned as the follow-up? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Well, don't discount the only winning move so quickly, then. :-) $\endgroup$
