Wordle hints (game #715) - clue #1 - Vowels

How many vowels does today's Wordle have?

Wordle today has two vowels*.

* Note that by vowel we mean the five standard vowels (A, E, I, O, U), not Y (which is sometimes counted as a vowel too). 

Wordle hints (game #715) - clue #2 - first letter

What letter does today's Wordle begin with?

The first letter in today's Wordle answer is B.

B is a very, very common starting letter in Wordle. In fact, it's the third most common overall, behind only S and C. 

Wordle hints (game #715) - clue #3 - repeated letters

Does today's Wordle have any repeated letters?

There are no repeated letters in today's Wordle.

Repeated letters are quite common in the game, with 748 of the 2,309 Wordle answers containing one. However, it's still more likely that a Wordle doesn't have one.

Wordle hints (game #715) - clue #4 - ending letter

What letter does today's Wordle end with?

The last letter in today's Wordle is T.

T is a very common letter to end a Wordle answer - in fact only E and Y are more likely in that position.

Today's Wordle answer (game #715)

Today's Wordle answer (game #715) is… BEAST.

Well this one was quite a lot easier than yesterday's game, which had an average of 5.2 according to WordleBot. The 'bot says that today's puzzle is only taking people 3.6 guesses, and that's no surprise when you consider the letters in use.

All five are very common, with B the third most likely letter to start a Wordle answer, A and E the two most common letters overall and T and S firmly nestled in the top 10. 

Admittedly, S is quite a lot less common outside of the first position in an answer, but when it's not there it does regularly appear alongside a T at the end; that ST combination occurs 36 times across Wordle's 2,309 original answers.

The fact that so many of these letters are common ones means that many of the best Wordle starting words were incredibly helpful today. My choice, STARE, left just four possible solutions; SLATE and LEAST left three. 

In my case, that meant I had a simple choice between BEAST, LEAST, FEAST and YEAST for my second guess, and no chance of losing my streak even if I had to work through all four of them. 

I could therefore have gone for broke and played one immediately in the hope of getting a 2/6, but odds of 1/4 were still too low for me, and I couldn't recall any of the four as having been a past Wordle answer, which would have cut it down a bit. 

So instead I played FLYBY, which would guarantee me getting a 3/6. If the F turned green, it would be FEAST; if the L turned yellow, it would be LEAST; the Y would indicate YEAST and the B would signal BEAST.

The latter scenario was the one that played out and I gratefully took my 3/6 after several tricky games in the previous days.

Yesterday's Wordle hints (game #714)

In a different time zone where it's still Saturday? Don't worry - I can give you some clues for Wordle #714, too.

  • Wordle yesterday had one vowel.
  • The first letter in yesterday's Wordle answer was N.
  • There was one repeated letter in yesterday's Wordle.
  • The last letter in yesterday's Wordle was Y.
  • Yesterday's Wordle answer is a caregiver.

Yesterday's Wordle answer (game #714)

Yesterday's Wordle answer (game #714) was… NANNY.

Seriously, Wordle. Seriously.

Two days ago, we had JAZZY - probably the hardest Wordle answer so far in 2023, with an average score of 5.5 according to WordleBot. And today, after a brief interlude for yesterday's HUMID (see below), we have… NANNY, another -A--Y word, another average score of above 5.0 (5.2, to be exact) and another one with a repeated letter in it.

Sure, this one doesn't have the added complication of any uncommon letters; there are no Js or Zs in it. But instead, it has three Ns. Triple letters are not just uncommon in Wordle, they're really, really uncommon. In fact, there are only 20 examples across Wordle's 2,309 original answers. That's fewer than 1% of all games - so you'd only expect one every 115 Wordles or so. 

When did we last have one? I'm pretty sure it was for FLUFF, game #382 in July 2022. And to the best of my knowledge that's the only previous example out of 715 games (the first game was #0, so we're at 715 not 714). So, in one sense it was long overdue. 

Even without the triple N, NANNY is a hard Wordle to solve on account of that -A--Y format, which is a rather common one in the game. That's evident in the results for most of the best Wordle starting words - for instance, my choice, STARE, left 188 possible solutions. SLATE, WordleBot's favorite, left 199. ADIEU, the most popular selection, was at 352.

However, some did fare better today. CRANE (23) and SLANT (19) both did a good job of cutting down the options, with the combination of an N and an A in each of them giving players a great start.

Lacking that myself, I had to work a little harder to narrow things down. DAILY gave me the position of the A and the Y at the end, leading to a strong sense of deja-vu and fear over what was coming. I still had 21 possible solutions left, WordleBot said after the game, and many of those words used different consonants from each other: HAPPY, NAGGY, GAWKY, FANCY, CABBY, VAMPY and so on. Still, at least I didn't need to include JAZZY in my list any more.

BUNCH was my attempt to rule out as many consonants as possible in one go. It couldn't be right, obviously, but would hopefully safeguard my Wordle streak for another day. And it did pretty well: Only the N changed color, but (as I would soon find out) that was because N was the only remaining letter in the answer.

At this point, I came up with four possible solutions: NANNY, FANNY, MANGY and MANKY. WordleBot didn't have the latter on its list, instead going with JANKY. I figured that playing MANGY would guarantee a 6/6 at worst, as the M would point the way to MANKY even if it was wrong. And if the M also stayed gray, it would be NANNY or FANNY with two guesses left.

The second of those scenarios played out, and NANNY was always my favored option for guess five. I finally got a 50/50 right and walked away with a 5/6. I'll take that, today.

What is Wordle?

If you're on this page then you almost certainly know what Wordle is already, and indeed have probably been playing it for a while. And even if you've not been playing it, you must surely have heard of it by now, because it's the viral word game phenomenon that took the world by storm last year and is still going strong in 2023.

We've got a full guide to the game in our What is Wordle page, but if you just want a refresher then here are the basics.

What is Wordle?

Wordle challenges you to guess a new five-letter word each day. You get six guesses, with each one revealing a little more information. If one of the letters in your guess is in the answer and in the right place, it turns green. If it's in the answer but in the wrong place, it turns yellow. And if it's not in the answer at all it turns gray. Simple, eh? 

It's played online via the Wordle website or the New York Times' Crossword app (iOS / Android), and is entirely free. 

Crucially, the answer is the same for everyone each day, meaning that you're competing against the rest of the world, rather than just against yourself or the game. The puzzle then resets each day at midnight in your local time, giving you a new challenge, and the chance to extend your streak.

What are the Wordle rules?

The rules of Wordle are pretty straightforward, but with a couple of curveballs thrown in for good measure.

1. Letters that are in the answer and in the right place turn green.

2. Letters that are in the answer but in the wrong place turn yellow. 

3. Letters that are not in the answer turn gray.

4. Answers are never plural.

5. Letters can appear more than once. So if your guess includes two of one letter, they may both turn yellow, both turn green, or one could be yellow and the other green.

6. Each guess must be a valid word in Wordle's dictionary. You can't guess ABCDE, for instance.

7. You do not have to include correct letters in subsequent guesses unless you play on Hard mode.

8. You have six guesses to solve the Wordle.

9. You must complete the daily Wordle before midnight in your timezone.

10. All answers are drawn from Wordle's list of 2,309 solutions. However…

11. Wordle will accept a wider pool of words as guesses – some 10,000 of them. For instance, you can guess a plural such as WORDS. It definitely won't be right (see point 4 above), but Wordle will accept it as a guess.
