After nearly two full weeks of brutal Wordle puzzles, this weekend has proved to be relatively easy for players. While "Wordle 295" is trending this morning on Twitter, the dreaded "Wordle 295 X" has not appeared on search trends, indicating that today's puzzle is relatively easy to solve. We'll dig into today's Wordle puzzle later in the article, for those looking for some hints or clues. However, if you haven't done the puzzle yet, you may not want to scroll to the bottom of the article as we'll eventually discuss the answer.
For those who somehow have missed out on the Wordle craze so far, the rules of the game are simple: players have six tries to guess a five letter word. Players receive clues based on which letters their guess shares with the correct word. A letter shaded in yellow means that letter also appears in the correct word, but in a different letter location. A letter shaded in green means that letter appears in the same spot in the correct word.
On average, it takes Wordle players about 4 tries to correctly guess a daily puzzle, although a few puzzles can be significantly trickier. The past week has featured a number of tough puzzles, with FOUND breaking streaks due to sharing a 4-letter word ending with several other words, and NYMPH eluding players due to its lack of a traditional vowel.
So, what about today's Wordle? Today's Wordle is a pretty easy puzzle to solve. It's a common word with no duplicate letters made up of several uncommon but not rare letters. While there are three other common words that share the correct answer's last four letters, you should be able to eliminate one or more of those answers during your initial guesses.
