Thursday! What a concept! It's all downhill from here — in the sense that things get easier as we head towards the July 4 long weekend, not that they get worse. However, the daily Wordle doesn't care what day it is, and will be as hard as it wants. It's certainly more satisfying when you work it out all by yourself, but sometimes you just get stuck — and that's where we come in.
The answer to the June 30 Wordle can be found at the end of this article, with the spoiler clearly signposted, or you can make your way down in a more leisurely fashion for a few general tips, gentle hints, and strategies to help you every day.
Wordle is a daily word game created by Josh Wardle, a Brooklyn-based software engineer who has developed something of a reputation as a crafter of interesting social experiments. Every day, the people of the internet are greeted with a fresh word puzzle that can only be solved — or not! — using a series of process-of-elimination clues.
Thousands of people around the globe now play this game each day, and fans have even created alternatives to Wordle inspired by the original format. This includes music identification game Heardle, Hollywood nerd faves Actorle and Framed, and variations like Dordle and Quordle that make you guess multiple words at once.
Not the day you're after? You'll find the Wordle answer for June 29 here.
We have some ideas to help you pick the perfect first move (or as close to perfect as you can get without just magically guessing the exact right word). Such tips include choosing a word with at least two different vowels in it, plus a few common consonants such as S, T, R, or N.
If you've been finding Wordle too easy, there is a Hard Mode you can enable to give yourself more of a challenge. But unless you activate this mode, we can assure you that Wordle isn't getting harder.
It's a noun, usually associated with animals or furniture.
It does! But not consecutively — in fact, there's only one five-letter word where this letter appears as a consecutive double, and it's a very obscure one. Hope that helps.
We'll tell you today's word now.
