The solution to today’s Wordle puzzle is drive. The word is from Old English “drīfan,” which means to urge, compel, or rush against — itself of Germanic origin. It is also related to Dutch “drijven,” which means to drive or push.
Today, as usual, we went for a random starting word, “hound.” It turned one tile yellow and narrowed down possible solutions to 134, from the standard 2,315. Plus, WordleBot called it a distinctive opening guess, and it’s not everyday that you get a compliment from the all-knowing Bot. “Drive” happened to be our second guess, and it was super thrilling to see the tiles turn green so early. Even more satisfying was the fact that WordleBot took four tries to solve the puzzle (at this point, it’s become petty to be in constant competition with an AI program, but we’re doing it for the humans).
We hope you find this article early enough to solve the puzzle in record time, and if you don’t, here are more games like Wordle to try your hands at.
