Wordle became the trend, back in December 2021 when Twitter users started sharing blocks of colored emojis, representing the letters of the day’s word. Today’s word might throw some players in a loop. Read ahead to know why and what the word is. Warning if you have not attempted today’s word, do not scroll down.
THE GAME: WORDLE
For the unversed, Wordle is a word game, published by New York Times. In the game, you get six attempts to guess that day’s word. For the wrong guess of the letter, the block turns grey. For guessing a letter that is in the word but at the wrong position, the block turns yellow. For guessing the right letter in the right block, it turns green.
On average it takes a player to guess a word in four attempts. But in some cases, the game might turn tricky. For example, some words might have similar endings, and some do not have any vowels. Some words like FOUND, which share a lot of words with similar endings broke the streak of a lot of players. A word like NYMPH with no vowel proved to be one of the trickiest words in the game.
THE HISTORY OF THE GAME
The game was created by Josh Wardle, a Welsh software engineer. He created the game to play with his partner initially but made it public in October 2021. The game gained popularity in December 2021 when Twitter users started sharing blocks of colored emojis. Since 2022 New York Times has owned the game and they continue to publish it each day.
As the game nears its 300th puzzle, the game seems to get trickier by the day. Today is the 298th day and the word might not be the toughest but can trick the players a bit. Today’s word does not share the same problems of having the same ending words with a different meaning or not having any vowel in them. The word does not even have the problem of having repetitive letters in it. Today’s word could even be more common than most words that came before this.
Today’s word is “CHUNK” Quite common and could throw people in for a loop.
WORDS TO HELP START WORDLE
The game is all about guessing the correct letters. One needs to have a good start to finish the game in as less guesses as possible. Experts and pro players suggest starting with words like ADIEU and TRAIN to have a good start.
The problem of vowels is solved. Then the game is up to you how well your vocabulary is and how well you can guess the word with only a few letters to help. A lot of rips off of the games and different variations have come up. Players can choose to play any one of them, they all follow similar rules like that of the original Wordle.
