St. Paul Is America's Best City... At Solving Wordle

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) -- Minnesota's capital city is home to some smart cookies, it seems, at least when it comes to word guessing games.

According to research by Wordtips, St. Paul is the best American city at solving Wordle, the daily five-letter word guessing game. St. Paul residents average 3.51 guesses (out of a possible six) before getting it right.

Wordtips gathered the data by combing nearly 200,000 tweets using #wordle and extracting game scores.
