2 weeks ago 36

Breeze through your daily Wordle with a cheeky peek at the answer for the April 3 (1019) puzzle: don't worry, we won't tell anyone. Or, if you'd prefer, use today's clue to bring some structure to your guesses, without completely giving the game away. It's entirely up to you.

A smattering of greens in my first two rows brought today's Wordle to a halt. I knew I had everything I needed to win right in front of me, I just had to keep calm, take a careful look at what I had remaining, and go from there. It worked, and I got a win in three this Wednesday—although it took some head-scratching and an entire cup of tea to get there.

Wordle gives you six rows of five boxes each day, and it's your job to work out which five-letter word is hiding by eliminating or confirming the letters it contains.

Starting with a strong word like LEASH—something containing multiple vowels, common consonants, and no repeat letters—is a good place to start. Once you hit Enter, the boxes will show you which letters you've got right or wrong. If a box turns ⬛️, it means that letter isn't in the secret word at all. 🟨 means the letter is in the word, but not in that position. 🟩 means you've got the right letter in the right spot.

Your second go should compliment the starting word, using another "good" guess to cover any common letters you missed last time while also trying to avoid any letter you now know for a fact isn't present in today's answer.  After that, it's just a case of using what you've learned to narrow your guesses down to the right word. You have six tries in total and can only use real words (so no filling the boxes with EEEEE to see if there's an E). Don't forget letters can repeat too (ex: BOOKS).

Originally, Wordle was dreamed up by software engineer Josh Wardle, as a surprise for his partner who loves word games. From there it spread to his family, and finally got released to the public. The word puzzle game has since inspired tons of games like Wordle, refocusing the daily gimmick around music or math or geography. It wasn't long before Wordle became so popular it was sold to the New York Times for seven figures. Surely it's only a matter of time before we all solely communicate in tricolor boxes.
