I imagine there will be two types of people visiting this article.

First, those who have successfully worked out the wordle of the day in six attempts or fewer (congratulations), but are stumped by a rather obtuse solution definition.

To these people I say, “Welcome, come in, let me explain what today’s five-letter answer means.”

Then there are the people who gave up trying to put five letters in the correct answer and found their way here to spoil the result for themselves.

These people should really think about going back to the game and giving it a good, honest try. Where’s the fun in cheating? You are only cheating yourself.

Whatever your reason for visiting, below is the solution to today’s Wordle puzzle (just make sure you’re looking at the right one!), as well as an explanation of what the word means.

We’ll be updating this article daily, so make sure to bookmark it and come back for tomorrow’s fix! We have also listed all previous Wordle solutions for 2022 at the bottom of this page.

Here’s everything you need to know.

## What is Wordle?

First, a little context about the game itself.

Anyone who knows the game Mastermind, which works with colored pencils, will immediately be familiar with the premise of Wordle.

The goal of the game is to guess the secret word in six tries, using a series of clues to figure it out.

• If one of your letters is highlighted in green, it means you have the right letter in the right place.
• If any of the letters are highlighted in yellow, it means those letters are in the word but are currently in the wrong place.
• Finally, if any of your letters are highlighted in grey, it means those letters are not included anywhere in the secret word.

Users share on social media how many tries it took them to solve the riddle, as once solved, the site offers players an opportunity to share their results.

This sharing option generates an emoji grid that replicates the color pattern of your finished puzzle using the black, yellow, and green emoji boxes.

Sharing in this way allows players to share their results completely spoiler free. Users will also indicate what edition of Wordle it is and how many guesses they made, for example “Wordle 187 4/6”.
