NYT Changes

Since purchasing the game, the New York Times have made a handful of changes to the word list, as detailed below.

Original Version

When they bought the game, the NYT removed several words from the list. Contrary to popular opinion, they didn't add any to make it harder...

This list has 6 words that are no longer on the active list: agora, pupal, lynch, fibre, slave, wench; and it is missing 0 words that have been added to the active list.

Without this change, the current words would have been:

Yesterday #331: canny
Today #332: fetus
Tomorrow #333: butch

Initial NYT

Several weeks after they took over they moved some words to the end of the list, causing some people to get 'Harry' rather than 'stove' if they hadn't refreshed the page.

This list has 0 words that are no longer on the active list; and it is missing 0 words that have been added to the active list.

Without this change, the current words would have been:

Yesterday #331: tipsy
Today #332: metal
Tomorrow #333: yield

Bad Timing

Around the time of the SCOTUS leak about overturning Roe vs Wade, several words - including "fetus" - were moved to the end of the list. Though, unlike the previous time, they also moved a couple of words forward from later in the list to replace "fetus" and "butch", so while the edits added a discrepancy for those words, overall it kept the list in sync with what it would have been previously.

This list has 0 words that are no longer on the active list; and it is missing 0 words that have been added to the active list.

Without this change, the current words would have been:

Yesterday #331: delve
Today #332: being
Tomorrow #333: scour
