Problem Words XXXX_

This is the 5th installment for 4 🟩 with possibilities.

For this round, I am looking at the situation 🟩🟩🟩🟩⬛. Let me start with a clarification. Many of the words in the table below are excluded from the solution list. Many are not common words. In my opinion, removal by the game creator help keeps the game fun.

Recent, in Wordle 287 the solution was TROPE. Many players were upset since they had never heard of this word. Other contentious words were RUPEE, SAUTE, TROVE, and BLOKE.

There are quite a few situations with 4 or 5 solutions with 🟩🟩🟩🟩⬛.

BASI-: With words BASIC, BASIL, BASIN, BASIS
BRIN-: With words BRINE, BRING, BRINK, BRINS, BRINY
COVE-: With words COVED, COVEN, COVER, COVES, COVET, COVEY
SHAR-: With words SHARD, SHARE, SHARK, SHARN, SHARP
SHEE-: With words SHEEL, SHEEN, SHEEP, SHEER, SHEET
SPOO-: With words SPOOF, SPOOK, SPOOL, SPOOM, SPOON, SPOOT
STEE-: With words STEED, STEEL, STEEM, STEEN, STEEP, STEER
SCRA-: With words SCRAB, SCRAE, SCRAG, SCRAM, SCRAP, SCRAT, SCRAY

Some of these words may have multiple problems. For example, COVER.

-OVER: DOVER, HOVER, LOVER, MOVER, ROVER
CO-ER: CODER, COMER, COPER, COWER
COVE-: COVEN, COVES, COVET

Getting to the point of having 🟩🟩🟩🟩⬛ or 🟩🟩⬛🟩🟩 or ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 with COVER could be troublesome. There are many situations with overlapping problems. With the solution COVER, you could easily be in a tough situation by the 4th round.

Keep that streak alive!
