When the daily online game of Wordle became trendy, I scoffed. I practically eye-rolled. Another bright shiny light to capture the public’s attention and distract us from the things that really matter? No thank you.

(So here we are a couple months later and it’s not like I’m playing this game every single day now to the point I wish it weren’t just once a day and so much so that I found Wordle archives to play a ton of them at once. Nope, not me. OK. Yeah. Me.)

I liked this logical process-of-elimination game so much that I then wanted to see if you could make your own. Sure enough, you can. And what’s cool is there are sites that let you make Wordles with proper nouns and with more than five letters if you really want to drive your friends and family nuts.

So weeks ago, I offered specific Jersey-inspired Wordles. If you never tried to solve those find them here.

Once you’ve done those, below are seven more Jersey Wordles I came up with to play. Now if you never did Wordle, the rules are simple. You get six chances to guess a five-letter word. You put your random five-letter starter word in the blocks and hit enter.

A gray box means that letter isn’t in the word at all. A yellow means that letter is in the answer but in the wrong place. A green means that letter is both in the answer and in the correct place.

Remember, proper nouns can be a thing.

Good luck!

Where NJ's 'red wave' of the 2021 election was reddest

In 2017, Gov. Phil Murphy won the election by 14.1 percentage points, a margin exceeding 303,000. His re-election was much closer, an 84,000-vote, 3.2-point victory. He and others talked about a ‘red wave’ of Republican voters in the electorate, and certified results show which counties turned red most.
